Fighting for election integrity and transparency

In-person Voting is Safe

Posted by |

Two weeks ago, the American left threw a collective hissy fit about Wisconsinites voting in person. The deployed hyperbole, people were going to vote, get sick, and die because balloting by mail was not expanded.

A review of Wisconsin coronavirus statistics one week after the election suggested that this wasn’t going to be the case. Two weeks on and the verdict is official, voting in person did not endanger or disenfranchise Wisconsin voters.

Ironically, mail-in ballots may have robbed some of their votes. Three tubs of mail-in ballots were lost in the shuffle, only to be discovered after the election.

For those keeping score at home, Republicans insisting on in-person voting did not reduce turnout or result in an increase in coronavirus transmission. The Democrat’s push for mail-in balloting may have actually disenfranchised voters.

Upending elections by expanding fraud-prone mail-in balloting, curbside voting or other novel, logistically cumbersome approaches inflicts unnecessary damage to trust in the democratic process.

Voting in 2020 should be carried out in the manner prescribed by law as previous elections have been, with the caveat that election workers clean religiously and have proper spacing and screening for in-person voting.

If distancing requirements mean additional polling locations need to be opened, election administrators are empowered with the ability to flex into additional sites.

Wisconsin isn’t the only example of successful in-person voting during the coronavirus outbreak. South Koreans voted in record in-person numbers last week with amped-up cleaning and screening in place.

It’s anticipated that South Korea will have similar results to Wisconsin since space and keeping things clean isn’t rocket science.

The media narrative that voters were risking life and limb is driving up angst, which is likely the point. Democrats have publicly stated that coronavirus is a crisis to be used in the service of pushing progressive policies that have failed to become law.

Wisconsin is now a great example of reality not matching the liberal narrative.

AG: Apply to Vote by Mail Illegally, Face Potential Prosecution

Posted by |

Power grabs usually defy logic and the Democrat’s latest effort is no exception.

This afternoon Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office released a legal advisory stating publicly that fear of contracting COVID-19 does not qualify anyone to apply to vote by mail in upcoming state elections.

The advisory came shortly before a Travis County judge announced he would issue an opinion allowing anyone in the state to apply to vote by mail. The judge’s opinion is highly likely to be appealed and overturned.

It’s troubling that unconstitutional rulings are predictable from Travis County jurists but here we are.

The novel legal theory here is that coronavirus short-circuits longstanding state law outlining who can vote by mail, excluding those who don’t.

Universal voting by mail is not provided for in Texas law, neither is applying for fear of leaving home.

Coronavirus – inexplicably – stands in contrast to being struck by lightning, getting into a traffic accident, having a heart event while visiting a public restroom, or any other harm that can befall a Texan leaving home.

Republican lawmakers in Texas and Wisconsin have been careful not to act rashly when it comes to altering election administration during the fog of war phase of the coronavirus pandemic.

Media Misinterprets Wisconsin Result

Posted by |

Republicans are as interested in suppressing votes, as the media is in suppressing their liberal bias, that is to say, not at all.

The latest fake “suppressed voters” narrative involves the recent Wisconsin primary, wherein Wisconsin Republicans fought and defeated a bum rush on the rule of law.

And, while Democrats won the battle of a single Supreme Court seat, the war over balloting integrity was preserved by Republican lawmakers standing their ground.

Nationwide, Democrats have been desperately angling to scale California’s ballot harvesting to all states. They’ve failed to do so through Congress. Now, they’re trying to do it through the courts and as they’ve been taught, leveraging crisis.

Saddled with a dog-face-pony-shell of a candidate this is hail-mary territory. Recent polling shows enthusiasm for the former Senator is predictably low.

It was against this backdrop and in this context that Wisconsin’s Democrat governor worked to move an election and expand mail-in balloting, by fiat.

In the end, this maneuvering failed, the election was held and predictably the Democrats picked up a seat on the Supreme Court. They won the battle, lost the war. It’s more likely that fighting abuse of power and a long view on good policy drove Republican action in Wisconsin, not suppression.

Democrats Scam Suit Cites Debunked Study

Posted by |

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, Texas Democrats are suing Texas to gain an electoral advantage.

After suing in state court last month, the Texas Democrat Party today sued Governor Abbott in federal court to force universal balloting by mail in Texas.

Universal balloting by mail is not permitted by law in Texas but Democrats have been pushing a novel theory that it is and they’re suing to see if they can make the theory stick.

Gilbert Hinojosa, Chairman of the Texas Democrat Party, incorrectly suggested in a press release that Texans who think they might get sick can apply to vote by mail.

False.

Before the suit was filed, progressive activists signaled they would ignore Texas law and advise healthy voters to apply for mail-in ballots as disabled, perjuring themselves in the process.

The Secretary of State’s office, when asked about Texans allowed to vote by mail, replied, “our office has no ability to change requirements that are set in the law.”

Democrats in California have legalized vote harvesting, Nancy Pelosi has tried to force that down on the states only to fail.

Now Texas Democrats are trying to use a crisis to facilitate the same power grab.

\There is no credible virus modeling that suggests spread will necessitate derailing the 2020 election. It’s likely why the Democrats lawsuit cites the flawed and debunked Imperial College study from the U.K. that inaccurately projected 2 million Americans would die from the Chinese flu. Whoops.

Not dissimilar to stimulus scams, Democrats hope to implement a vote harvesting scheme in Texas via judicial fiat.

Vote harvesting is a practice fraught with fraud that preys on the elderly, mentally challenged, poor and sanctity of elections through the sale of votes.

There’s no credible case here, it’s just another tasteless maneuver by Democrats.

Texans have clarity on voting by mail

Posted by |

Don’t be confused by progressives trying to bum rush Texas elections or fake news irresponsibly published by the Houston Chronicle.

There have been no expansions to who can vote by mail. Texas law is clear, to vote by mail in Texas you need to:

be 65 years or older;

be disabled;

be out of the county on election day and during the period for early voting by personal appearance; or

be confined in jail, but otherwise eligible.

Suggesting that the Secretary of State (SoS) has introduced ambiguity to this list of qualified individuals is fake news promulgated by the Houston Chronicle.
