How Dumb Are RINOs?

2020 August 7
by bc3b

There have been many  documented cases of problems with mail-in voting – some involving outright fraud and yet others involving incompetence by the Post Office or election officials. Yet, RINOs like Senator John Thune (R-SD) aren’t bright enough to realize it.

Wednesday from CNN:

Washington (CNN)A Senate GOP leader raised concerns on Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claims that mail-in-voting leads to mass fraud, arguing that Republicans should instead be encouraging voters to use the method in order to compete in a consequential election that will determine control of Congress and the White House.

“Mail-in voting has been used in a lot of places for a long time,” Senate Majority Whip John Thune, the No. 2 Senate Republican, said in the Capitol. “And honestly, we got a lot of folks, as you know, who are investing heavily to try to win that war, it’s always a war too for mail-in ballots. Both sides compete and it’s always an area where I think our side — at least in my experience — has done pretty well.”
The South Dakota Republican added, “I don’t want to discourage — I think we want to assure people it’s going to work. It’s secure and if they vote that way, it’s going to count.”
The comments come as a range of Republican officials throughout the country have reacted with growing alarm to the President’s attacks on mail-in ballots, saying his unsubstantiated claims of mass voting fraud are already corroding the views of GOP voters, who may ultimately choose not to vote at all if they can’t make it to the polls come November.
Wednesday from the New York Post:

The mail-in ballots of more than 84,000 New York City Democrats who sought to vote in the presidential primary were disqualified, according to new figures released by the Board of Elections.

The city BOE received 403,103 mail-in ballots for the June 23 Democratic presidential primary.

But the certified results released Wednesday revealed that only 318,995 mail-in ballots were counted.

That means 84,108 ballots were not counted or invalidated — 21 percent of the total.

One out of four mail-in ballots were disqualified for arriving late, lacking a postmark or failing to include a voter’s signature, or other defects. The Post reported Tuesday that roughly 30,000 mail-in ballots were invalidated in Brooklyn alone.

The high invalidation rate provides more proof that election officials and the Postal Service were woefully underprepared to handle and process the avalanche of mail-in ballots that voters were encouraged to fill out to avoid having to go the polls during the coronavirus pandemic, critics said.

Or this from Thursday’s Roanoke Times

Nonprofit group that encourages voter participation mailed confusing absentee ballot applications to Roanoke Valley residents that included the wrong return address for local election offices.

Earlier this week, many residents in Roanoke, Roanoke County and Franklin County received applications for absentee ballots from the Center for Voter Information, a Washington, D.C.-based group that provides information about candidates and elections. The pre-filled applications for ballots are legitimate, but the addresses on return envelopes are wrong.

Roanoke residents received pre-addressed return envelopes for the Roanoke County registrar’s office, and county residents received return envelopes addressed to the city’s registrar.

The mistake created confusion for voters and caused a massive headache for the city and county registrars, who spent much of Wednesday and Thursday answering calls from voters demanding to know if the mailers were part of an election fraud.
Friday from the Washington Free Beacon:

More than one-sixth of the mail-in ballots sent to voters in Nevada’s largest county during the 2020 primary went to outdated addresses, according to a new watchdog report.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, reviewed the 1.3 million mail-in ballots Nevada’s Clark County sent during the June primary. It found that more than 223,000 of the ballots were sent to outdated addresses, leading the postal service to designate them as “undeliverable.” The undeliverable ballots accounted for 17 percent of all ballots mailed to registered voters. Nearly 75 percent of Nevada’s total population resides in the county, which includes Las Vegas.

Keep in mind, we’re talking three days of news coverage.

For Senator Thune’s benefit:

unsubstantiated
[ˌənsəbˈstan(t)SHēˌādəd]
ADJECTIVE
1.not supported or proven by evidence.

Yes, mail-in voting works real well Senator.

And, were not even covering things like the mail-in ballot that was sent to the dead cat, ballots mailed to deceased, buying ballots, ballot harvesting and ballots/political flyers postal carriers dump in the trash.

Hat tips: CNN, Roanoke Times, Washington Free Beacon and the New York Post

    Hmm, the font is pretty small. Mayor of NYC says less than 60% of New Yorkers have registered with the census. They could lose 2 seats in Congress. Two fewer Dems in Congress, King Eyore!

    It might be legit: not “forgot” to fill out the form, but instead moved out of the city. A lot of people have.

    Anyone know someone who didn’t fill out the census who lives in a blue state, in order to depress the population count? Asking for a friend …

    in the PRK no attempt is even made to prevent non-citizens from voting. Kalifornia will wind up mailing ALL people with a driver’s license a ballot…and then ask them NOT to vote if they are a citizen. Kalifornia gives driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.

    Although some illegal aliens may not mail back in their ballots, the ballots NOT mailed in will be harvested.

    Thus AT LEAST 5 million illegal votes will be cast in Kalifornia…almost all for Democrats. Which is why the Dems want to get rid of the Electoral College

    But I think I see Trump’s evil scheme. For those that remember, The Gipper said the only way to slow government down was to starve it. I suspect Trump is attempting the same thing only he is going to let the Fed Reserve notes go to $0 value to achieve it. Or by analogy, its going to starve on all that worthless paper. Is that the 4D chess? Beats me. But I have to say, if the USD has $0 value the govt is not long for this world.

    60 – I do agree they know someone will file against it and wanted that optics battle regardless of outcome. I wouldn’t be surprised if any decision about it strung out past election though and then it’s smacked down…problem is if the leftist judges smack it down it makes it at least slightly harder for themselves to do the same later. – at least in theory, and say that cause we see people ignore prior case law thrown out the window all the time when it suits their purpose.
