In a White House press briefing, CNN reporter and avid Trump critic Jim Acosta, asked a rather unintelligent question about voter fraud. “You’ve been talking about voter fraud since the beginning of this administration and where is the evidence of it?…all the experts say voter fraud is rare,” said Acosta.
First of all, let’s point out his inability to understand that experts saying something is “rare” is admitting its existence. Second, what experts? Third, how is voter fraud quantified on a scale of “rare,” to what? From rare to every single vote is fraud? And lastly, isn’t any voter fraud bad? Frankly, we know that for Acosta and his liberal friends, such as those who legislate sanctuary cities are actually for voter fraud because that is how the Democratic party wins.
Trump replied, “I think there’s a lot of evidence, but we’ll provide you with some, okay?” His promise was delivered promptly from his re-election campaign to Acosta. “Democrats and the mainstream media always scoff at claims of voter fraud, but then completely ignore evidence from across the country,” said Brad Parscale who is Trump’s 2020 campaign manager. Parscale added, “The obvious reason is that Democrats are just fine with the possibility of voter fraud. And many in the media just see the world their way.”
Amidst the evidence provided to Acosta was a Heritage Foundation document of over 1,000 proven cases of voter fraud, reported Breitbart. Also, the re-election campaign noted “there were nine people charged in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas with ‘vote harvesting’ and mail ballots, a political operative in New York stealing and submitting absentee ballots, and a resident in Pennsylvania receiving seven separate ballots on the mail” reported Breitbart.
As for the “experts” Acosta referred to, the Trump campaign found that they were quoted in a New York Times piece who said election fraud was rare and “the most common type of such fraud in the United States involves absentee ballots” by mail. You had us at New York Times.
Another piece of information that was provided to Acosta were “details of 2005 commission led by President Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush’s secretary of state James A. Baker III that concluded mail-in ballots ‘remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”
