Defying the liberal position that mail-in ballots should be part of the rights of free people, Attorney General Bill Barr told Fox News that mass-scale mail-in voting “absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud.”
After the host asked Barr if he agreed with Hillary Clinton’s assessment that mail-in ballots are “fine” and “fair,” Barr disagreed in the strongest of terms.
It absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud. Those things are delivered into mailboxes. They can be taken out. There’s questions about whether or not it even denies a secret ballot, because a lot of the states have you signing the outside of the envelope. So, the person who opens — person who opens the envelope will know how people voted.
Barr also suggested it could make it much easier for foreign countries to interfere. “Right now, a foreign country could print up tens of thousands of counterfeit ballots, and be very hard for us to detect which was the right and which was the wrong ballot.”
In fact, Barr said America needs to be tightening, not loosening, its grip on election credibility.
