Attorney General Barr: Universal Mail-In Voting 'Playing With Fire'

Attorney General Barr: Universal Mail-In Voting 'Playing With Fire'”

Those in favor of mail-in voting say it is the safer option and are calling on Congress to provide more aid to the almost bankrupt U.S. Postal Service, in addition to the $10 billion the U.S. Treasury approved in July, so that the institution is able to carry out a successful election by mail despite financial troubles. The attacks have continued even though research contradicts the idea of pervasive fraud in the vote-by-mail process and even though intelligence officials say they don't have information to suggest some of Barr's gravest concerns, like adversaries printing counterfeit ballots, are close to becoming reality. That's 24 million more ballots than were cast in the entire 2016 presidential election.

Attorney General William Barr gave a false recounting of a voter fraud case in Texas during an interview Wednesday as he sought to bolster his unfounded argument that mass expansions of mail-in voting in 2020 will increase the risk of widespread fraud. This isn't the first time Barr has wildly botched the facts in support of his preferred narrative.

"We actually thought there was voter fraud initially, and we couldn't find it except that little tiny case", he said.

If the mail-in ballot "isn't tabulated", the president said, "they will be able to vote [in person]". He made them out and voted for the person he wanted to.

Chatham slammed Barr over his claims about the case.

"This is playing with fire", Barr said in response. "We're a very closely divided country here". And people trying to change the rules to this methodology - which as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion - is reckless and unsafe.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano noted that if election results are delayed past January 20, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi could become acting president of the nation.

Barr added, "That kind of thing happens with mail-in ballots and everyone knows that". Much of this violence will be motivated by political division.

The debate regarding mail-in voting comes just two months ahead of the November presidential election, when some US citizens may choose to vote by mail rather than in-person to avoid potential crowds amid the coronavirus pandemic. From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment. This revolt intensifies until strangers burn down cities and tear down America's system of government.

"We ask the Attorney General to review this scandalous outburst, not simply because it offended every American, but because it set a precedent for radical politicians to hijack state events for partisan performance art and possibly break the law with, thus far, no effect", Palmer wrote.
