Michelle Obama is pushing for vote-by-mail options in the upcoming presidential election, citing the danger in voting in person amidst a coronavirus pandemic.

The former First Lady told Axios that her celebrity voting rights group – When We All Vote – would embrace legislation currently being pushed by congressional Democrats to expand absentee ballots and vote-by-mail.

“There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life,” she told the publication.

Ripe For Fraud

Despite the Associated Press statement above, there is plenty of evidence of voter fraud through mail-in ballots.

ProPublica, not exactly known for their conservative views, has analyzed voting by mail and concluded it is fraught with risks, including “opportunities for voter fraud.”

“Among the possible downsides of a quick transition” to vote-by-mail, they write, “are increased voter fraud, logistical snafus and reduced turnout among voters who move frequently or lack a mailing address.”

Of course, there have been recent examples of this kind of voter fraud involving mail-in ballots – debacles in North Carolina and Texas to name a couple.

Trying to Steal the Election

Michelle Obama and her band of celebrities join other Democrats seizing on the coronavirus pandemic as a means to influence the 2020 presidential election.

Another former First Lady and perpetually sore electoral loser Hillary Clinton demanded Congress “make voting by mail the norm going forward.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been trying to slip in language to coronavirus relief packages in an attempt to expand vote-by-mail.

Now, Obama will enlist numerous A-list celebrities to push the plan to their low-information fans. Entertainment names such as Selena Gomez, Tom Hanks, and Faith Hill are all part of this organization.

The fact is, there is little evidence suggesting the coronavirus crisis will last into the summer, let alone nearly seven months from now.

This is why Democrats are pushing it now – they want the crisis to be fresh in the minds of the American public to garner sympathy for their cause.

They want ballot harvesting. They want ‘found’ ballots for their party (anybody remember Al Franken and how he won his election?). They want ‘lost’ Republican ballots. And they’re using a crisis to get their way.

“There’s a lot of dishonesty going on with mail-in voting, mail-in ballots,” the President has warned.

‘A lot of dishonesty’ is practically a Democrat party slogan in the making.
