President Trump Tells NC Voters To Commit Election Fraud

Donald Trump.

ABC News reports–and seriously, frontal disclaimer, don’t try it:

In the battleground state of North Carolina Wednesday, Trump suggested to supporters that they should attempt to vote twice — first by mail and then in person.

“They will vote and then they are going to have to check their vote by going to the poll and voting that way because if it tabulates then they won’t be able to do that. So, let them send it in, and let them go vote,” Trump said Wednesday in an interview with a North Carolina news station WECT.

He continued: “And if the system is as good as they say it is, then they obviously won’t be able to vote. If it isn’t tabulated, they will be able to vote. So that’s the way it is, and that’s what they should do.” [Pols emphasis]

Here in Colorado, the question briefly arose during the Democratic presidential primary this year whether voters might rush to a vote center and cast a ballot to supersede a vote cast by mail they had come to regret in the intervening period. The answer of course is no, you can’t do that–and in North Carolina, what President Donald Trump suggested his supporters try just to ‘see what happens’ would be felony election fraud. Back in 2013, local right-wing huckster Jon Caldara narrowly avoided prosecution for faking a move to Colorado Springs to vote in a local election, for the similar purpose of “investigating” a defect in the law that doesn’t actually exist.

But hey, it’s just the President of the United States, who can’t seem to finish a thought these days without the words “law and order,” telling Americans to commit crimes!

We’d call that “Peak 2020.”

    How many cultists will actually do this?

    He wants to clog up the polls on election day.

      You may be right Gertie. He will attempt to clog up the polls, slow down the mail, purge voters from the rolls, frighten people from physically going to the polls, and send goons to the polls to harass Biden voters. 

      What's next ?  Filling up millions of vials of water and distributing them as a 100 % effective Coronavirus vaccine on Nov 2 ?  

      There are no depths this subhuman jackass wont sink to in order to cheat and win this election. Anything other than, you know, being a competent President and getting some work done on behalf of the American people.

    According to AG Barr, it may not be illegal to vote twice.

    • Early Worm says:

      If anyone had any doubt that Barr has sold his soul, that interview with Blitzer should put the issue to rest.

      Is it legal to vote twice? I don't know what the law in the state is.

      Earlier in that same interview, he was asked about Trump's statements directing him, Barr, to charge Obama and Biden with treason for spying on Trump's campaign. Is it appropriate for the President, your boss, to be telling you to criminally charge his political rivals? Answer: Trump can say what he wants.
