A cautionary tale about voting by mail from that notorious Trumpist organ… the New York Times.
Now, nearly six weeks later, two closely watched congressional races remain undecided, and major delays in counting a deluge of 400,000 mail-in ballots and other problems are being cited as examples of the challenges facing the nation as it looks toward conducting the November general election during the pandemic.
But, as they used to say in tech, it’s not a bug, it’s a feature.
Thousands and thousands of ballots go missing. Counting is a mess. Governor Cuomo offers to have his people come in and count the ballots. Lawsuits follow that are settled by partisan judges.
It’s a perfect storm of fraud and incompetence that’s ripe for being exploited by the crookedest machine politicians.
The media repeatedly accuses Trump administration members of hypocrisy for having voted by mail. But as the Times’ own story shows, there’s a huge difference between individuals voting by mail and shifting the system over to mass or universal mail balloting, especially if it comes with a dose of ballot harvesting.
At that point it’s just massive voter fraud.
The Times story is filled with lefty candidates pushing to count dubious and disqualified ballots, and to further lower the standards for voting by mail.
And that’s where the bodies are buried.
There’s a huge difference between responsibly voting by mail and this kind of massive storm of fraud.
