A giant protest went down in D.C. Saturday morning at the home of the Postmaster General, over highly suspicious claims that millions of mail-in ballots might not be counted.
The crowd formed at the home of Louis DeJoy, who had absolutely no involvement or experience in the U.S. Postal Service until Trump appointed him. DeJoy is a Trump loyalist who has contributed money to his Presidential campaign.
DeJoy warned an untold number of ballots in 46 states might not be counted … this as Trump has said he won’t adequately fund the effort to properly count ballots. He as much as said he’s against it because mail-in voting helps Democratic candidates. Overtime has already been cut and mailboxes have been removed from streets.
Trump’s claims of voter fraud with mail-in ballots are provably false … there is virtually no fraud with mail-in ballots … the number is a small, small, small fraction of 1%.
Some of the protesters stuffed fake ballots in DeJoy’s mailbox … although it’s unclear if he’ll be moved by anyone other than Trump.
As you know, there’s a push to expand mail-in voting because it’s the safest way by far to vote during a pandemic.
Trump is clearly trying to delegitimize the election … he’s already suggested it be delayed and there are big worries he might not accept the results and try to stay in office even if he loses.
