RALEIGH – North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein is polishing off his ‘good boy’ status with the Left, having done his part to perpetuate a crackpot conspiracy theory about the president stealing mailboxes in order to steal an election. Earlier this week he regurgitated the Party Line, and threatened lawsuits in order to demonstrate his fealty to the Left.
From WFMY News 2:
“[…] “I am in conversations with a number of Attorneys General who share my concern with the essentialness of the postal service,” explained NC Attorney General Josh Stein. “It is a lifeline for rural North Carolina, it is critical for small businesses it’s how veterans get their medicine. In a pandemic, it’s a way for our voice to be heard in our democracy through their vote”.
Stein says they are reviewing options of what should be legally done. He says the state got a letter from the postal service saying that they were concerned they would be unable to meet state statutory deadlines and get ballots delivered on time.
“That’s unacceptable, that’s why I’m exploring legal actions,” said Stein.
While all this is being discussed, the message the AG wants you to hear loud and clear is this: your vote counts and make your plan of how you’ll do it.
“There are three ways to vote in North Carolina, on election day, early voting including 2 different weekends or vote by mail and we are the first state to send those ballots out starting on September fourth,” said Stein. […]”
Yes; nothing quite speeds up a process like taking people to court. Stein has so little decency that he even uses sick veterans as a political cudgel with which to beat President Trump, and thus the Republican electorate.
The Postmaster General of the United States Postal Service, Louis DeJoy, likely never expected to be in such focus regarding the election. But when Democrats shove Pandemic Panic down the throats of Americans, push states to dramatically expand reliance on Mail-In-Voting and Absentee Ballots, and then purposely manufacture conspiracy theories to accuse President Donald Trump manipulating the postal service to rig an election, the Postmaster General becomes center stage.
For his part, DeJoy announced Tuesday that the changes he had been enacting at USPS — a mix of efficiency reforms and totally normal operational maintenance to decommission and replace things like postal drop boxes and mail sorters, better regulate overtime for employees — would be suspended until after the election.
Not that these changes were ever aimed at rigging an election, as they were planned out well before the Left pushed the 2020 election into the hands of USPS with Pandemic Panic. Still, DeJoy saw that waiting until after the election to make the changes in question would be no big deal and would alleviate the Left’s asinine concerns.
DeJoy said he is suspending the changes in order to, “avoid even the appearance of any impact on election mail.”
But the Left’s concerns were never real; they’re manufactured in order to undermine confidence in an election. It’s yet another ruse to undermine confidence in the electoral system itself. And so the fact that the very things they raised concern over is disappearing, they will maintain the illusion at all costs.
And that’s why AG Stein’s posturing and threats make him a ‘good boy’ on the Left.
While Stein is focused on the perils of voting by mail, though, perhaps he’d like to focus on the documented risks of, not some Postmaster Plan, but of voter fraud and the fact that “the bulk of fraud occurs absentee.”
That is a quote from Stein in 2018. Yet, now he is pushing absentee ballots more zealously than McCrae Dowless?
