Election commish calls Trump’s bluff on imaginary ‘voter fraud’
Our only question: what took her so long?
An FEC commissioner repeated her demand Tuesday that the White House provide proof for its claims that thousands of people were bused from Massachusetts into New Hampshire to vote illegally in the 2016 election.
The President of the United States has, without providing evidence, alleged a massive conspiracy to bus thousands of voters from one state to another to cast illegal votes in the 2016 elections, commissioner Ellen Weintraub wrote in a statement posted online Tuesday.
The commissioner made a similar demand for proof:
“Any such allegation challenging the legitimacy of federal elections would be of great concern to me, Weintraub continued. As it happens, this particular allegation falls squarely within the jurisdiction of the Federal Election Commission, since the expense of these buses has not been accounted for on any campaign-finance filing. Accordingly, I have asked the President for his evidence.”
On Feb. 9, Trump reportedly told a closed-door meeting of senators that thousands of people who were brought in on buses from Massachusetts voted illegally in New Hampshire, costing him the states electoral votes, and former Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) her job.
