Bill Barr Suggests Democrats Will “Pay Off” Mailmen: “Here’s A Few Hundred Dollars, Give Me Some Ballots”

“Just think about why we vote the way we vote now, where you have a precinct, your name is on a list, you go in and say who you are, you go behind a curtain, no one’s allowed to go in there to influence you, and no one can tell how you voted.

“All of that is gone with mail-in. There’s no secret vote. You have to associate the envelope in the mailing, the name of who’s sending it in, with the ballot. So there’s no more secret vote with mail-in vote.

“A secret vote prevents selling and buying votes. So now we’re back in the business of selling and buying votes.

“Capricious distribution of ballots means harvesting, undue influence, outright coercion, paying off a postman and saying, ‘Hey, here. Here’s a few hundred dollars, give me some of your ballots.’

“You know the president is going to stay in office and seize power and all that shit? I’ve never heard of that crap. I mean, I’m the attorney general. I would think I would have heard about it.” – Bill Barr, speaking to the Chicago Tribune.
