A former U.S. Justice Department attorney-whistle blower is warning the fairness of the November election is in jeopardy if prominent Democratic leaders get their way.
The recent coronavirus relief package will provide $400 million to the states for the 2020 elections, but some observers are wary of a scheme to steal the election.
J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department attorney who now leads Public Interest Legal Foundation, says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing for a mail-in election to choose the president of the United States. That is a major concern for Adams, who has emerged as a watchdog for election integrity at the ballot box in recent years.
“If you put more ballots in the mail, then you're going to have more problems in the election,” Adams predicts. “Look, we don't want to turn over the elections in this country to the people who regularly bring you your neighbor’s mail."
Adams says the State of Georgia deserves credit for anticipating voter fraud and trying to prevent it for the June mail-in primary.
“They're going to make sure that people who are filling out absentee ballot applications are the real people,” Adams explains. “There are steps that can be taken to increase the security of a vote-by-mail election. It's still not ideal but it's better than nothing."
Adams says Americans can thank President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for preventing Pelosi from filling the $4 trillion bill with numerous left-wing projects, but he adds that Pelosi is now discussing another stimulus bill, which would likely include federal authority over elections.
