Mitt Romney Jumps on ‘Cheat By Mail’ Bandwagon

Oh boy…

As much of the nation works to emerge from their COVID-19 cocoons, there are still certain pockets of the population who are perpetuating the idea that our world will never be the same again.

Some do this out of fear, others out of precaution.  In either case, there are political operatives who are looking to take advantage of these fears in order to push their agenda.  This is where the Democrats are trying to slip in a “vote by mail” scheme that could be rife for ballot harvesting and other fraudulent activities.

Now, with little prompting, Utah Senator Mitt Romney is again breaking with his Republican counterparts in supporting the suggestion.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), one of the Republican Party’s most vocal critics of President Donald Trump, responded to the president’s criticism of recent vote-by-mail initiatives by Democrat governors, claiming the voting system works seamlessly in his home state.

“In my state, I’ll bet 90% of us vote by mail. It works very very well and it’s a very Republican state,” Romney told reporters on Capitol Hill when asked about the president’s comments, according to ABC News.

Romney was likely responding to a fairly specific development in the argument.

Earlier Wednesday, President Trump threatened to withhold funding from Michigan over its mailing absentee ballot applications for its upcoming election in August and November.

“Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election. This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!” the president tweeted.

On Tuesday, Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced that all Michigan voters will receive an application to vote by mail, citing possible health concerns stemming from the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

“By mailing applications, we have ensured that no Michigander has to choose between their health and their right to vote,” said Benson. “Voting by mail is easy, convenient, safe, and secure, and every voter in Michigan has the right to do it.”

Romney has frequently and publicly opposed President Trump on a number of key issues, often making him appear the odd man out in the Republican Party.
