A far-left media figure who works as a senior correspondent for Vox and has made appearances on CNN and MSNBC “tossed out” a method Thursday by which billionaire Michael Bloomberg could help Democrats essentially cheat elections.

The idea from Ian Millhiser called for Bloomberg to pay 80,000 Democrats $50,000 “each to live in Wyoming long enough to vote in a Senate election.”

Why? So that Democrats could take the seat of incumbent Sen. John Barrasso, who won reelection by 75,000 votes during the 2018 midterm elections.

Look at Millhiser’s proposal below:

While he was just “tossing it out,” meaning it could have been tongue-in-cheek, it still amounted to an endorsement of blatant election fraud.

But the tweet still hadn’t been removed by Twitter or at least labeled with a warning as of Friday morning, raising another round of concerns about Twitter’s double standards.

It also provoked harsh backlash from conservatives who felt that Millhiser was basically saying that the votes of Wyoming’s actual residents shouldn’t matter.

Look at the backlash below:

The most horrifying part of the tweet is the support it elicited from blue check mark elites who clearly support achieving power “by any means necessary.”

In fact, Barrasso wasn’t even the only liberal media figure to “toss out” an idea like this. Eric Levitz, an editor with New York magazine, took the idea even further by proposing in a since-deleted tweet that Democrats “make a temporary move to GA” right now to help Democrats win two expected 2020 runoff Senate elections.

Look:

He later tried to backtrack by claiming he’d been speaking “mostly in jest.”

Look:

Keep in mind these are the same types of liberal media “journalists” who’ve blown up in melodramatic meltdowns over President Donald Trump suggesting that the outcome of the 2020 presidential race has been corrupted by fraud.

Yet here they are promoting fraud …

And as noted above, they’re backed by a number of blue check mark elites.

Look:

The only “good news” is that Bloomberg has a horrible track record when it comes to election spending, meaning Millhiser’s scheme would most likely fail.

“Billionaire and former presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg’s more than $100 million investment into three key states fell flat as President Donald Trump appears to have captured all of them,” CNBC reported Wednesday.

Bloomberg reportedly invested the $100 million in a “plot” to help Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden win Florida, Ohio and Texas. However, President Donald Trump won all three states.

Similarly, the billionaire businessman had spent $900 million during the 2020 Democrat presidential primaries, only to lose the nomination to Biden.

“U r an idiot,” the latter Twitter user wrote to Millhiser.

Maybe, maybe not. But he’s definitely a journalist …
