While Twitter ‘Fact Checks’ Trump On Mail-In Ballot Fraud, A Mail Man Was Charged With Changing Ballots

On the same day that Twitter was ‘fact-checking’ President Trump’s claims of potential fraud through vote-by-mail schemes, the Justice Department charged a mail carrier for allegedly altering ballots.

According to a release from the DOJ, Thomas Cooper, was charged in a criminal complaint with attempted election fraud.

“In April 2020, the Clerk of Pendleton County received ‘2020 Primary Election COVID-19 Mail-In Absentee Request’ forms from eight voters on which the voter’s party-ballot request appeared to have been altered,” they revealed.

Five ballot requests had been altered from ‘Democrat’ to ‘Republican,’ while other ballots had been altered in different ways.

Twitter Trying to Censor Trump

On the very same day a man was arrested for potential election fraud, social media company Twitter labeled a tweet by the President of the United States suggesting the potential for such actions with a warning.

“There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent,” Trump wrote. “Mailboxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”

“This will be a Rigged Election,” he added. “No way!”

Twitter plastered that tweet with a label at the bottom reading, “Get the facts about mail-in ballots.”

Those ‘facts’ bring followers to a statement that reads in part: “Experts say mail-in ballots are very rarely linked to voter fraud … Fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud.”

Trump Furious

Excellent timing on Twitter’s part to suggest mail-in ballot fraud isn’t a real thing on the same day someone is charged for it.

Aside from Cooper’s case, there here have been some prominent examples of voter fraud involving mail-in ballots – fairly recent debacles in North Carolina and Texas for beginners.

Vote-by-mail schemes, contrary to what Twitter wants you to believe, are considered by many experts as a means of facilitating voter fraud.

A bipartisan electoral reform commission in 2005 concluded that mail-in voting creates privacy issues and “increases the risk of fraud.”

President Trump slammed Twitter on its own platform for “stifling free speech” through the use of fake news fact-checkers.

“[Twitter] is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election,” he charged. “They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post.”

“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!” he concluded.
