A bipartisan Commission on Federal Election Reform, co-chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker declared, “Absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”
Also, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) just released data revealing more than 28-million ballots by mail went unaccounted for from 2012 to 2018, with more than one million going to the incorrect address in 2018 alone. “Absentee ballot fraud is the most common, the most expensive to investigate, and it can never be reversed after an election,” said the organization’s president J. Christian Adams. “The status quo was already bad for mail balloting. The proposed emergency fix is worse,” he concludes.
More recently, “In a Supreme Court contest in Wisconsin in April, about 1,600 ballots were discovered the morning after Election Day in a mail processing facility in Chicago — 1,600 voters whose ballots did not count,” The Hill reports. “Hundreds more who applied for absentee ballots did not receive them in time, according to a report by the state Board of Elections.”
And, literally the same day President Trump tweeted that mail-in ballots “would be forged,” the Department of Justice announced a mail carrier in West Virginia was being charged with attempted election fraud by committing forgery on mail-in ballots.
All of this proves President Trump’s point that mail-in voting is susceptible to fraud.
Even otherwise liberal consumer advocate Jerry Nadler said: “Paper ballots are extremely susceptible to fraud…I can show you experience which would make your head spin.”
