President Trump’s reelection campaign just called out California for its vote by mail order. The new order provides a wide-open opportunity for election fraud.
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said, “This is a thinly-veiled political tactic by Gov. Newsom to undermine election security. There’s a vast difference between people voting absentee by mail because they can’t be at the poll on Election Day versus mailing everyone a ballot – even those who didn’t request one – is a wide open opportunity for fraud.”
Vote by mail has typically been reserved for those out of the country and military members for a reason.
The practice has long been seen as a weak point for election integrity and universal vote by mail would raise a long list of concerns.
Murtaugh continued saying, “California has a bad record on ensuring that people on the voter rolls still live at the same address, still reside in California, or are even still alive. Everyone is concerned about the safety of voters, but jeopardizing election security is the wrong way to go about it.”
California seems to be committed to this plan to allow vote by mail, but its reasonable to ask why. November is still six months away and the pandemic will be mostly over by then. What other motivations could California have outside supposed public safety concerns?
