President Trump on Saturday urged Republicans to rally together to fight against the “ballot harvesting scam,” which he calls “the biggest political scandal in history.”
The 2020 presidential election, which was fraught with reports of nationwide voter fraud, ballot-box dumps, and dubious tabulation processes, has caught the attention of Americans everywhere. In fact, a reported 59 percent of Americans now believe that cheating occurred during the election in 2020.
President Trump has publicly ripped the unsecure election processes in the United States, and in an official statement made on Saturday through his Save America PAC, he elaborated on the “determinative” data that has come to light since 2020. “It is totally determinative, and the Democrats are doing everything they can to stop the news from coming out. Republicans must be strong and unified in order to save our Country!” he said.
To put the scale of the fraud into perspective, multiple audits and investigations have been conducted in key battleground states throughout the course of 2021, some of which continue today. Here are some of the key findings in just a few of the states:
- Arizona: The 2020 presidential election audit report in Maricopa County found 698,239 ballots with issues, which included unlocatable ballots, ghost voters, bad signatures, and outright fraudulent ballots.
- Wisconsin: In 2021, the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau (LAB) concluded their allegedly nonpartisan audit of the 2020 election and found that 6.9 percent of absentee ballots were missing information. Additionally, an alleged 44,272 people in Wisconsin voted without proof of identification.
- Georgia: In Fulton County, a 2020 Risk-Limiting Audit (RLA) confirmed that there were at least 36 inconsistencies with the county’s election processes, such as violations of chain of custody for ballots.
- Pennsylvania: President Trump himself highlighted the results of an election investigation in the Keystone State, which concluded that there were 120,000 excess voters not accounted for by the Pennsylvania Department of State.
- Michigan: A reported 289,866 ballots were sent to Michiganders who never requested them, according to investigative data shared by the 45th president.
These findings are just the tip of the iceberg in the ongoing saga of election investigations in battleground states.
Not to mention, there are also questions surrounding the impact of Big Tech donations that influenced the 2020 election. There is an ongoing Senate investigation of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s millions donated to Wisconsin cities’ local election processes.
In light of this staggering data, President Trump, along with many of his supporters, were shocked when former Vice President Mike Pence did not acknowledge the possibility or presence of election fraud on Jan. 6, 2021, when he was tasked with ensuring an honest vote by possibly sending state votes back to state legislatures to determine the legality of every single vote cast in each disputed state.
“If there is fraud or large-scale irregularities, it would have been appropriate to send those votes back to the legislatures to figure it out,” President Trump remarked.
As President Trump continues to fight against election fraud, many rightfully concerned American voters are worried about the integrity of election processes going into the 2022 midterms and 2024 presidential race. Many hope to see President Trump announce a bid to return to the Oval Office, and the GOP would be wise to heed the 45th president’s advice to double down in their fight against election fraud and be “strong and unified to save our country.”
