McCarthy blasts Dems ‘disgusting’ attempt to exploit coronavirus relief, holdout for widespread mail-in voting

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., ripped the Democrat Party for a “disgusting” attempt to exploit a national crisis to manipulate the November election.

The party that’s infamous for not letting a serious crisis go to waste wants to include funding for widespread mail-in voting in the next coronavirus relief measure coming down the pike to assist a nation reeling from an unprecedented national emergency brought on by the Wuhan virus COVID-19.

McCarthy spoke with reporters during a press call Thursday and said now is not the time to be worrying about politics, Politico reported.

“You want to hold up the bill because you want to change election law for November, because you think that gives you some political benefit?” the minority leader said. “That’s disgusting to me. … Stop worrying about politics. Worry about what’s in front of us. And that’s the health of the nation … and our economy.”

With election day seven months away, the left has launched a determined campaign to push for mail-in voting, suggesting that it may be too dangerous for voters to go to the polls in November — the goal being, in the eyes of many a skeptic, to establish as wide open a process as possible that will be ripe for fraud.

(When your party puts up 77-year-old Joe Biden as your standard-bearer to go up against President Trump, assuming Biden can remember what he’s running for, you have to resort to desperate measures.)

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said as much in her own call to reporters, according to Politico.

“We have a different value system about what voting means to be a democracy,” she said. “And clearly, we want to remove all obstacles to participation.”

(Democrats love to pervert the term “democracy.”)

Meanwhile:

After the last relief bill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared on MSNBC to push for the “reality of life that we are going to have to have more vote by mail.”

“In terms of the elections, I think that we’ll probably be moving to vote by mail,” the highly partisan Democrat said. “That’s why we wanted to have more resources in this third bill that just was signed by the president to get those resources to the states to facilitate the reality of life that we are going to have to have more vote by mail.”

 

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also condemned the conniving attempt on the left to “fundamentally” alter the November election in a Fox News op-ed:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and former Vice President Joe Biden say we must throw election integrity to the wayside in favor of an all-mail election, fundamentally changing how Americans vote in eight months. The overhaul would vastly expand opportunities for fraud and weaken confidence in our elections, but all Washington Democrats see is a potential benefit for their party.

Pelosi says she needs $4 billion, at the height of the pandemic, to “really democratize our whole system.” Pardon those of us who thought we already had democratic elections.

In the end, it’s a “ruse for ballot harvesting,” RNC spokesperson Elizabeth Harrington warned.

To that end, the George Soros-funded Brennan Center for Justice is advocating for the use of drop boxes to collect ballots in November.

The Heritage Foundation called ballot harvesting the “tool of choice for vote thieves.”

California allows ballot harvesting, which allows anyone to go out into the field to collect and submit absentee or mail-in voter ballots on behalf of campaigns — this helped flip seven Republican seats to Democrats in 2018, according to former GOP congressman Jason Chaffetz.

Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton warned of efforts by the left to steal elections by pushing a vote-by-mail “free for all” amid concerns over the coronavirus.

In a tweet this week, Fitton noted that widescale use of mail-in votes “would blow up clean elections in November.”

His organization is actively engaged in forcing states to clean up “dirty election rolls,” with many precincts having more registered voters on the rolls than actual residents.
