Tom Fitton to Newsmax TV: Dems Using Stimulus to Steal Elections

(Newsmax TV's "The Howie Carr Show")

Hidden inside the $2 trillion taxpayer coronavirus relief package is an a Democratic plan to "steal elections," warns Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

In an interview Monday on Newsmax TV's "The Howie Carr Show," Fitton said the left has have pushing "ballot harvesting" for some time," but is using the coronavirus crisis to "as an excuse to set up a system that will allow them to be more easily able to steal elections."

"That includes unlimited ballot harvesting, which essentially allows third parties to go around and gather ballots with virtually no regulations and deposit them at voting locations," he told Carr. "Can you just imagine the voter fraud carnage as a result of that unregulated system nationally?"

Judicial Watch is a conservative watchdog group, but he noted ballot harvesting is not only a problem on the left. Republicans were caught doing it in the 2018 North Carolina 9th District congressional race, where it is illegal.

In California the practice is legal, but Fitton warns it is ripe for fraud.

Essentially, volunteers or paid workers can pick up absentee ballots from voters and take them to polling sites. But, Fitton warns, there is no oversight, and those running the operation are free to pick up only ballots of those who vote in agreement with them. There is no proof ballots are not changed, and there is no proof voters are not intimidated on how to vote.

"Frankly, you know the Republican response is, well, 'we've got to learn how to ballot harvest,'" Fitton said. "And my response is, we've got to end ballot harvesting. People should show up and vote at the polls, unless there's an extraordinary reason not to do so."

Voting is a civil rights issue, he noted, saying the idea from the left that Republicans are suppressing the votes of minorities is "made up." When election security is increased, minority turnout increases, he said.

"The left patronizes minorities, pretends they don't know how to vote correctly, pretends they don't have IDs, when in fact they want their votes to count, and participate in greater numbers when you assure them their votes will count," Fitton concluded.
