Nancy Pelosi thought she found a way to make a Democrat win in 2020 invincible.
She never thought it could land her in this much trouble.
House Republicans hit Nancy Pelosi with a nasty surprise she never saw coming.
The Democrats would love to place more restrictions on every part of American life.
If Democrats had their way, there would be limits on the cars Americans could buy, the energy their homes could use, and they would make it almost impossible for Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
However, there is one area in which Democrats are utter libertarians and believe in no restrictions whatsoever.
The Democrats think that people in America should be able to vote without any of those pesky regulations that verify the identity of the person voting.
Many people that support the Democrat Party are either illegal immigrants or felons that have not yet had their voting rights restored.
There is a reason that Bernie Sanders was pushing the idea that murderers, in jail with life sentences, should be given the right to vote while they are still imprisoned.
Nancy Pelosi has been trying to push legislation that would make it mandatory to have mail-in ballots and ballot harvesting because of the coronavirus.
“It mandates states allow for ballot harvesting and vote by mail. On the whole, this has little to do with a COVID-19 response and a lot to do with the agenda the Democratic Party has proposed in the past,” said Jason Snead, executive director of the watchdog group Honest Elections Project.
The Democrats have done well with their ballot harvesting already in California and they would love to have them nationwide.
Ballot harvesting is the practice where a single volunteer can collect ballots to drop them off, with no verification to make sure all the ballots they collected are received and could easily be used for voter fraud.
But Nancy Pelosi is facing Republican opposition to her plan that could take it down.
Republican Rep. Rodney Davis introduced a bill to ban ballot harvesting.
“We cannot allow politics to interfere with the integrity of our electoral process,” Davis said in a statement. “Ballot harvesting, in the way House Democrats are trying to nationalize, allows any individual to pick up any voter’s ballot for any reason and deliver it to the polling location, completely unchecked.”
“This ‘pandemic relief’ bill from House Democrats would actually jeopardize public health by allowing ‘ballot brokers’ to go door to door with a blatant disregard for social distancing guidelines,” he continued. “Not to mention, allowing political operatives to pick up ballots is unnecessary when mail ballots already have pre-paid postage.”
There is no way that either mail-in ballots or ballot harvesting are a secure means of voting.
The long-term safety of our elections outweighs the temporary crisis America is now facing.
Voting in-person with an ID is the only method currently guaranteed to make voting secure.
Nancy Pelosi is proving once again that she believes Democrats winning is more important than American democracy.
