In a sobering letter to President Donald Trump, a leading election watchdog warned that “a fair and honest election is not possible under current conditions.”
According to the Election Integrity Alliance, November elections are at heightened risk due to “extraordinary and careless changes” in election laws and regulations that purport to protect voters from the Wuhan coronavirus.
“The founders of Election Integrity Alliance implore your immediate response to an existential threat to this nation—the aggressive dismantling of our electoral process,” the letter said.
“Under cover of COVID, enough states’ election laws are currently being manipulated so that even an Electoral College majority can be stolen in a variety of ways,” it added.
In several states—including Virginia, for example—ACLU-backed lawsuits were attempting to use the state’s emergency powers to overturn longstanding rules that requires witness signatures on absentee ballots, in order to attest that those submitting them were who they claimed to be.
The Election Integrity Alliance’s letter featured dozens of signatories—many of whom were leaders of independent organizations, such as the Voter Integrity Project of North Carolina, the Virginia Voters Alliance, and the Election Integrity Projects of California, Arizona, Arkansas and Nevada.
The EIA and allied groups asked President Trump to issue an executive order requiring all states to follow federal election law and maintain clean voter rolls before the Aug. 5 deadline that bars any changes to 2020 general-election processes.
“Numerous organizations have irrefutable evidence that states are actively working to deny their own citizens’ civil right to self-govern,” the letter stated.
“We also have extensive documentation that non-enforcement of protective laws in concert with the implementation of policies and procedures that supersede federal and state laws has resulted in election chaos, including single individuals casting votes in multiple states,” it continued.
The Election Integrity Alliance warned of a potential “titanic disaster,” and leaders of member-organizations sought an immediate White House summit to share “vital information” that undermines the mainstream news narrative that voter fraud is a myth.
The groups were so intent on securing the election, and particularly combating COVID vote-by-mail fraud, that they started a White House petition for other concerned citizens to sign and attempt to force a meeting with President Trump.
“We do not want to lose our Republic,” the groups stated. “We cannot trust our state leaders to solve these problems, because in most cases they are the problem.”
The Left’s effort to exploit the coronavirus has been well-coordinated since the very day that Trump declared a national emergency in response to the pandemic threat.
Among those leading the push are Democrats’ top “election-stealing lawyer,” Marc Elias, who gained dubious distinction as the person who commissioned the Steele Dossier on behalf of the Hillary Clinton campaign.
Billionaire activists Tom Steyer and George Soros have also been backing universal mail-in balloting—and other dubious measures—in states across the country, but especially in strategically targeted battleground states.
Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder is rerouting his “sue till blue” efforts through the National Democratic Redistricting Committee to actively target absentee-ballot laws in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Wisconsin, among several other states.
And most recently, failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, a champion of “voting rights” measures like eliminating photo ID laws, has launched a new PAC intended to push back on the anti-fraud narrative by smearing those who oppose the radical changes.
In response, President Trump tweeted: “Absentee Ballots are a great way to vote for the many senior citizens, military, and others who can’t get to the polls on Election Day. These ballots are very different from 100% Mail-In Voting, which is “RIPE for FRAUD,” and shouldn’t be allowed!”
Despite seemingly agreeing with the Election Integrity Alliance, Trump has not yet indicated whether he will meet with the group or its partners.
“Our input will supply the evidence the mainstream mantra claims does not exist,” their letter concludes. “We believe this is truly the last chance to do so. There is no tomorrow unless you act today.”
