The Dems are in full panic mode right now over election integrity.
It’s a hard battle for Dems to win, though…some recent polling shows that a majority of Americans believe that “cheating” played a role in the 2020 election, so it only stands to reason that Americans would want to delve in and see exactly what happened in the 2020 election.
Furthermore, this was the very first time that we had a tsunami of mail-in ballots flood our system, and we can’t let that happen again. There are too many ways for cheating and mistakes to occur, so election integrity is a must – and three’s no logical reason for anyone to oppose that – especially the guy who supposedly won the biggest and most historic election in the nation’s history, right?
Yet, Dems are fighting tooth and nail…and most of us can figure out why, can’t we?
The Dems fight is about to heat up even more and reach far beyond the borders of Arizona, where a comprehensive audit is currently taking place.
Now, PA Senator Doug Mastriano is initiating an audit for his state and is requesting materials and equipment to begin the process.
The senator posted this on his personal website:
A forensic investigation of our election results and processes for the 2020 General Election and the 2021 Primary will go a long way to restore trust in our system. Voting is the fundamental right of all citizens. We should continually look for ways to improve the voting process to ensure every voice is heard.
Today, as Chair of the Intergovernmental Operations Committee, I issued letters to several counties requesting information and materials needed to conduct a forensic investigation of the 2020 General Election and the 2021 Primary.
We have asked these counties to respond by July 31st with a plan to comply. The counties represent different geographical regions of Pennsylvania and differing political makeups. Some are Republican while others are Democrat, which means that this will be a balanced investigation.
The Intergovernmental Operations Committee is a standing committee of the Pennsylvania State Senate with oversight and investigatory responsibilities regarding activities relating to or conducted between two or more governments or levels of government, including the administration of elections across the Commonwealth. As set forth in Pennsylvania Senate Rule 14 (d), each standing committee is empowered with the authority to inspect and investigate the books, records, papers, documents, data, operation, and physical plant of any public agency in this Commonwealth, including county boards of elections.
This is necessary as millions of Pennsylvanians have serious doubts about the accuracy of the 2020 General Election. A January poll from Muhlenberg University showed that 40% of Pennsylvania voters are not confident that the results of the 2020 Election accurately reflected how Pennsylvanians voted. Discounting or mocking their concerns is neither an answer nor proper in this constitutional republic.
During debate on election reform a couple weeks ago, some of my colleagues regrettably dismissed these poll numbers as an inconvenient truth and went on to assert that the only reason there is distrust in our election process was because of the “conspiracy theories and lies” from those they disagree with politically. This sort of ad hominen attack does nothing to address the concerns of millions of voters.
The case for a forensic investigation of the 2020 general election is evident to any unbiased observer.
This was the first election in Pennsylvania with “mass” mail-in voting. In 2020, there were 2.7 million ballots cast by mail and absentee compared to about 263,000 absentee ballots cast in 2016. Many of these ballots were counted at offsite locations with little outside observation or oversight. Furthermore, mail ballots without signature verification were permitted to be counted across the Commonwealth. And, of course, all of this transpired in the midst of Covid-19 where uncertainty and fear impacted the conduct of the election.
Senator Mastriano is right – there needs to be an audit in order to put people’s minds at ease.
Because if we don’t have faith in our country’s elections, then we don’t have a country.
And it’s clear that a large swath of Americans does not have “faith,” and Dems and Republicans BOTH should want to see that rectified immediately…and if they don’t…why?
