(PatriotHeadline.com)- Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has come up with a novel new way to win people over to mail-in voting, the flawed voting system that leaves elections wide open to fraud. During an interview with MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell, Pelosi confirmed that her congressional Democratic colleagues will push to expand mail-in voting nationally and will now be calling it “voting at home.”
“We’re now calling it voting at home because that’s really what it’s all about – enabling people to vote at home,” she claimed.
Pelosi confirmed that the Democrats are standing behind their HEROES bill, a piece of legislation that was drawn up solely by the Democrats without any Republican say. It has yet to be passed into law and is unlikely to reach that stage unless the Democrats are willing to work across party lines and involve the Republicans in the drafting of the legislation.
Inside the $3.6 billion bill, provisions for allowing everyone in the country to vote at home have been made. However, it would be done through mail-in voting that ultimately results in people who have died or who have changed residences being sent ballot papers, and those ballot papers potentially being signed and filed as a vote. It also leaves the election wide open to ballot harvesting, which is often used by Democrat activists.
It is a system that allows activists and campaigners to knock on peoples’ doors and ask for their ballot papers, help them sign it, or even sign it themselves, before dropping them off at election counts. It means that the voter has no idea whether their vote was tampered with between the moment it leaves their house and it arrives at the count.
Pelosi also told O’Donnell that the $3.6 billion legislation was a “small price to pay for our democracy and the good health of people going to the polls.” She claimed that if the Republicans don’t support the bill, then it means they “stood in the way of voting, which is in keeping with their voter suppression in general.”
Pelosi’s claim that the Republicans support voter suppression is wrong, and based on the fallacy that asking people to prove their identity when voting is an act of suppression.
Why don’t the Democrats want to conduct fair elections?
