This morning, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-GA) appeared on Varney & Co. on the Fox Business Network to discuss the issues with large scale mail-in ballots.


Do you think chaos is guaranteed if mail-in ballots are used wide-spread in the upcoming election?

“I agree [yes]. And more importantly, as you’ve mentioned, this undermines the integrity of our entire election system… Make no mistake, this is calculated... This has been the number one legislative priority of Democrats [since] January of last year when they took control of the House of Representatives. Their very first bill, was House Resolution 1, which was a federal takeover of our entire election system, which included mass-mailing of ballots and ballot harvesting, because it has been… successful for them in California… Three days ago, four people in Los Angeles admitted to buying ballots…giving cigarettes and cash to get people to sign fraudulent ballots… This is going to [be] nationwide."

What can we do about it?

“We [Congress] were able to stop them from doing this legislatively.. They were able to pass [H.R. 1] through the House with all the Democrats voting for it; and Republicans voting against it. The Senate refused to take it up. So, what they are doing, they’re using COVID…, again, they’re leveraging this crisis that we’ve been in -for political gain, and they’re getting individual states or secretaries of state to do this for them. …the only way we’re going to be able to effectively fight back is, we have to get more people voting than they do… The more they can delay the results of the election, the more likely they can manipulate those ballots… If you go back to the election two years ago – the congressional election in California – Republicans, on election night, won several seats… Three weeks later, we had lost those because boxes of ballots were appearing at these voting precincts. This is what you are going to see nationwide. I do not know what the President has in mind legally, when he’s [saying]… ‘See you in court,’ but we have to make sure the integrity of our election system is maintained.”
