Media Matters reports:
With polls now showing sitting Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom firmly in the lead, right-wing media have been steadily pushing election misinformation — laying the groundwork to claim that the forthcoming election is rigged before the votes are even cast. Predictably, Fox News has been beating that election misinformation drum.
Pro-recall Facebook groups are also teeming with voter fraud conspiracy theories. Former Fox contributor Richard Grenell, who served as a cabinet member in the Trump administration, is even calling for people to catalog supposed instances of voter fraud happening across the Golden State on his website.
Grenell, you may remember, publicly toyed with entering the recall race himself.
Voter fraud is real. Too many on the left won’t investigate the cases.
But we will.
Here’s our new ad highlighting the troubling and growing problem.
