As the travel ban due to the new “Omicron” variant has dominated the news cycle, Sean Duffy, a former Republican congressman from Wisconsin took a brief interlude from a discussion on the “scarient” to tie pandemic policies to potential election fraud in Wisconsin during the 2020 presidential election.

“I think that if you look at the benefit of COVID for the Democrat Party, they won the last election based on COVID,” said Duffy as a co-panelist on Fox News’ “The Five” on Friday.

He explained that the virus created an opportunity for government officials to change the rules, such as widespread mail-in ballots, that made it easier to cheat.

“They were able to change election rules. So made it far easier to cheat and potentially steal different portions of the electorate in the last election,” Duffy stated.

Wisconsin was one of several states that experienced unexplained surges in votes for President Joe Biden in the wee hours of the morning.


Co-host Jessica Tarlov pressed him on his assertions and asked him point-blank if he believed “the election was stolen.”

“Do I think there was cheating in my state of Wisconsin?” Duffy responded. “Hell yes! There was cheating. Now, did it change the results? I don’t know.”

“You don’t know or you know?” Tarlov asked.

“I didn’t say it changed the election results,” he responded before explaining that he believed the cheating was part of the bigger picture.

“My point is if you can actually impose broader rules in regard to elections, that’s going to benefit Democrats. If you care about Covid, why haven’t we shut down the border and stopped people coming over the southern border? Why haven’t we given them the shot or tested them? They’re just flying in to the country,” Duffy explained.

“Why are we waiting to shut down travel from South Africa?” the 50-year-old former congressman said. “With Covid, if you can shut down an economy, more people are dependent on the government. And who is the party of government dependent? Democrats. So I think they see this as a victory for them to win elections.”

In September, Duffy took a shot at Bette Midler after she called for a sex strike in response to the Texas “Heartbeat Bill” until women “are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress.”

Duffy agreed with his wife that conservatives were already producing more children than their liberal peers and poked fun at Midler, suggesting that not everyone would oppose her ban because “no one’s lining up for Bette.”

“But I also think that if the strike only applies to Bette Midler, I don’t think there’s any man in Texas who’s gonna disagree with this ban. They’re like, ‘Of course we’ll take that ban every day of the week.’ No one’s lining up for Bette,” the former Congressman said.
