Tucker Carlson said Tuesday night that Democrats “encourage” making voter fraud easier “because it helps them win elections.”

Tucker Carlson Says Democrats Are Using This Crisis as an Opportunity to Push Their Agenda

Carlson began his nightly Fox News monologue by pointing out that some Democrats, including Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, might consider this crisis an “opportunity.” Carlson mentioned some of the bills Northam signed over Easter weekend, calling them an “entire rundown from an MSNBC weekend show all signed into law.” He continued, “that ought to worry you, even if you’re lucky enough not to live in Virginia.”

“His so-called ‘election reforms,’” Carlson added.

“With his signature, Klanrobes eliminated all of Virginia’s voter ID laws,” Carlson said. “He signed legislation that allows residents to vote up to 45 days before an election, for any reason. There is also automatic voter registration for anyone using the state’s DMV, including those who do it online.”

Tucker said that “so-called ‘election reform’” is something Democrats will promote while a “beleaguered and distracted population” is paying less attention due to the coronavirus pandemic.


‘Government IDs aren’t racist’

Carlson directly targeted the voting-ID issue.

“Government IDs aren’t racist,” Carlson insisted. “They’re mandatory. You can’t live here without one … Pretty much every person in America has a government ID. And in fact, in February 2019 a paper coauthored by professors at Harvard and the University of Bologna found that voter ID laws had no effect whatsoever on voter turnout for any subgroup they measured — whether it was by age, or gender, or party or yes, by race. This is a complete and utter crock.”

“So why are they continuing to say it?” Carlson added. “Because voter ID laws stop voter fraud. Democrats encourage voter fraud because it helps them win elections.”

Tucker Warns Against ‘Ballot Harvesting’

Carlson also cited so-called “ballot harvesting”in California that were part of helping turn longtime red districts blue.

“Now, Democrats would like to see that system come to your state — to every state — and they’re using the coronavirus pandemic to justify it. ‘IDs are racist!’” Carlson said, mockingly.

“Expect to hear a lot more of that lie,” he added.
