Democrats aren’t willing to honor elections that they didn’t win.
They’ll go to shocking lengths to change election results.
A top Democrat made a stunning statement about overthrowing a past election.
Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe refused to accept a previous election result.
During a CNN interview on Sunday, McAuliffe would not agree that George W. Bush won the 2000 presidential election.
CNN host Dana Bash revealed videos that show that in the past McAuliffe had claimed Democrats “actually won the last presidential election” and that the Supreme Court “stole the last presidential election.”
When asked, McAuliffe didn’t repeat what he said in the past, instead noting that “the 2000 election went to the United States Supreme Court.”
“Going back to 2000, do you think Republicans stole that election?” Bash asked.
“I wish the United States Supreme Court had let them finish counting the votes,” McAuliffe answered.
He then attacked Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin for advocating for election integrity.
“But, listen, Glenn Youngkin has run the entire campaign on election integrity,” he stated. “He says it is the single most important issue facing Virginians. No, I think health care, I think dealing with COVID, I think education is.
“And he just said two days ago that we ought to audit all of Virginia’s voting machines. Really? This is all the Trump talk. And I’m just surprised Trump hasn’t gone to Virginia yet.” McAuliffe added.
McAuliffe doesn’t seem to understand how irrational the claim is that he’s making.
He thinks the 2000 election was illegitimate because the Supreme Court ruled that a Florida recount was unconstitutional on the grounds that there were no clear standards that were being applied, and yet he’s demonizing his Republican rival for wanting one.
Democrats in Congress objected to the electoral votes in the last three presidential elections where a Republican won the White House but when Republicans acted in a way outlined by the Constitution and objected to the 2020 election being certified, Democrats threw a fit.
Sen. Chuck Schumer said when Republican senators refused to certify Biden’s victory, challenging election results, it screamed “conspiracy” and “undemocratic.”
“The effort by the sitting President of the United States to overturn the results is patently undemocratic,” he stated. “The effort by others to amplify and burnish his ludicrous claims of fraud is equally revolting. This is America. We have elections. We have results. We make arguments based on the fact and reason—not conspiracy and fantasy.”
If Schumer really feels so strongly on the subject he would condemn Terry McAuliffe for not accepting the 2000 election results.
But since he won’t do that it appears that Democrats don’t believe that elections should never be challenged, they just don’t want Republicans to challenge election results.
