Pelosi defends push for mail-in voting, claims GOP has been ‘hijacked’
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday accused President Trump and congressional Republicans of seeking to suppress voting out of fear of a fair verdict while defending Democratic efforts to expand mail-in balloting amid the coronavirus crisis.
“We have a different value system about what voting means to a democracy,” Pelosi asserted during a call with reporters, referring to Republicans. “Clearly, we want to remove all obstacles to participation.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Democrats have sought to include billions of dollars in recent emergency relief bills to empower states to expand by-mail balloting amid fears that voting in person will exacerbate the spread of the coronavirus.
The Hill shared the following from Pelosi’s remarks:
“The president says that he thinks that if we had vote-by-mail no Republican will ever get elected. Well, have more confidence in what the Republican Party stands for,” she said.
“It had been a Grand Old Party. It had been hijacked, I know,” she continued. “But nonetheless … Republicans know how to vote by mail. So he shouldn’t belittle the ability of Republicans to make their voices heard for the candidates they support, and not be afraid of the voice of the people. But they are. And that’s one of the reasons they want to stand in the way of a more open democratic system at a time of a pandemic.”

Have you ever seen a report of Republicans using illegal voters like we’ve seen from the Democrats, -IE- signing up people who have died or allowing people to vote more than once in an election. That’s why Pelosi what’s this BS mail in voting, which couldn’t be validated.
