Lt Gov Dan Forest Warns Democrat-controlled Board Using Pandemic Panic to Undermine Elections Integrity, Vote Thursday

RALEIGH – Never let a crisis go to waste is a virtual proverb among Democrats, and COVID-19 Pandemic Panic has been a bonanza for those that want bigger government to have more control over most aspects of our lives. One vector Democrats are pursuing under the guise of the Pandemic Panic is a move to relaxed voting rules that diminish election integrity, but do not actually prevent diseases.

Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest is warning that a vote concerning the Democrat-controlled, Cooper-appointed State Board of Elections, scheduled for Thursday, will determine whether or not this exploitative power grab is actually codified.

“Tomorrow, the Democrat-controlled State Board of Elections will ask the Rules Review Commission for unprecedented power to alter election rules to their benefit. If approved, these measures would let the Board of Elections accept ballots days after the election, delay vote counting, suspend due process and ignore legitimate challenges. None of these provisions protect public health. The State Board of Elections, appointed by Gov. Cooper, is simply trying to take advantage of the COVID-19 pandemic to undermine the integrity of our elections. These rule changes cannot be allowed to move forward.”

Delay vote counting, suspend due process, accept very big and very late piles of ballots DAYS after the election, and ignore challenges to spurious votes? If that sounds like the Democrats dream, that’s because it is. And they’re advancing their interests behind the cover of COVID, shamelessly, because they believe their woke ends justify shameful means.

If you’d like to let the Rules Review Commission know how you feel about the Democrats’ proposed changes to election rules, you can contact them here.
