Hillary Clinton pushes for ‘other governors around the country’ follow Newsom’s mail-in voter scheme

Failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton earned herself a ratio on Twitter this Friday by posting a tweet in support of mail-in voting, a widely panned Democrat-concocted proposal fraught with 1,000+ perils.

“I hope other governors around the country follow @GavinNewsom’s lead. No voter should be forced to choose between their safety and exercising their civic duty this fall,” she tweeted.

Look:

The tweet was posted in response to a story about California Gov. Gavin Newsom embracing mail-in voting.

“Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Friday to send every registered voter in California a mail-in ballot for the November presidential election,” San Francisco station KGO reported.

“The election won’t be vote-by-mail only; those who still want to vote in-person will be able to do so. The governor said detailed guidelines on how in-person voting will work are forthcoming. California is the first state in the nation to commit to sending everyone mail-in ballots amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

That Clinton would look to California for solutions to any problem possibly speaks to her political ignorance, given as the state’s Marxist ideas have eliminated tens of thousands of freelance jobs, created a widespread homeless crisis, destroyed countless lives and contributed to pollution.

Nevertheless, both Clinton and her 2020 counterpart — current Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden — have eagerly embraced the far-left state’s ideas.

But in doing so, they haven’t exactly earned the public’s love.

Case in point (*Language warning):

Just how far-left is California? So much so that San Francisco city officials have chosen to house homeless addicts in lavish hotels and provide them with alcohol, tobacco, marijuana and other drugs free of charge so as to keep them from wandering the streets.

No joke …

As for the mail-in voting idea being pursued by Democrats, that they would even propose such an idea strongly suggests their concerns about Russian interference in America’s elections have been nothing but political machinations designed to question the credibility of President Donald Trump’s election to office.

Mail-in voting already exists in California as an optional sign-in service, and predictably, it’s been beset with 1,000+ problems.

In the 2016 and 2018 elections alone, an estimated 16.4 million ballots went missing, according to an investigation by the Public Interest Legal Foundation published last month.

“Putting the election in the hands of the United States Postal Service would be a catastrophe. … These represent 16 million opportunities for someone to cheat. Absentee ballot fraud is the most common; the most expensive to investigate; and can never be reversed after an election. The status quo was already bad for mail balloting. The proposed emergency fix is worse,” PILF President J. Christian Adams said in a statement at the time.

Review the foundation’s findings below:

Government Accountability Institute research director Eric Eggers has predicted that a nationwide rollout of mail-in voting could lead to at least 24 million inaccurate and flawed voter registrations.

“The concern I have if we’re trying to mandate national mail-in elections — which by the way was part of the language that Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats inserted in the first version of the most recent stimulus package — would be that we have such massive problems with voter rolls in this country,” he said in an interview last month. “So, now are we going to be mailing ballots to people that authentically don’t exist and or are ineligible voters?”

“If you have national mail-in ballots where the supervisor of elections are mailing ballots to everybody on the voter rolls and we know per Pew [Research] Center statistics that we’ve got at least 24 million flawed or inaccurate voter registrations in this country. That’s 24 million ballots that are potentially going to people with the wrong address or to people that are dead or to people that have double registered.”

The opportunities for real fraud and interference would make the since-debunked Russian collusion delusion conspiracy theories peddled by Democrats look like child’s play.

This is why some critics responded to Clinton’s endorsement Friday of Newsom’s EO by accusing her and other Democrats of wanting to cheat in the next election. What else would explain the dichotomy between them complaining about alleged collusion but then turning around and pursuing mail-in voting?
