Recently, Democrats have been pushing for vote-by-mail citing ‘Covid-19 concerns’. President Trump, on the other hand, has strongly resisted the push alluding to potential voter fraud. Now two Democrats in New Jersey have been charged with election and mail-in voting fraud.
The Fight For Vote-By-Mail
In the past few weeks, Democrats have led the charge to use mail-in voting for upcoming elections. They pressured Congress to release $4 billion to states to aid their efforts.
President Trump has firmly pushed back the attempts concerned for the potential voter fraud and abuse. He even warned Michigan he would withhold federal funds if they went ahead with their plan. Ultimately, he lost the battle, and many states decided to utilise this method of voting.
In light of these efforts, it’s hard to ignore that Democrats have also been championing the recent protests. Enormous crowds tightly packed all over the country. Encouraged, supported and funded by Democrats ‘worried’ about spreading Coronavirus.
Needless to say, Trump has good reason to suspect anything the Democrats say or do.
Voting Fraud Scandal
In Paterson, New Jersey, two Democrat Councilmen and two others are facing serious charges of election fraud. The accused are Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-elect Alex Mendez, Shelim Khalique and Abu Razyen.
Charges between them include; third-degree fraud in casting a mail-in vote, third-degree tampering with public records, third-degree unauthorized possession of ballots, second-degree election fraud, third-degree false registration or transfer.
These charges could result in very long jail sentences and massive fines.
In any event, the vote-by-mail in Paterson has been a shocking failure. The Board of Elections discarded almost 20 per cent of the mail-in votes.
