Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel scorched Twitter’s fact-checking system for denying the possibility of voter fraud.
McDaniel roasted Twitter’s leadership in a tweet thread for fact-checking President Donald Trump’s concerns about voter fraud in mail-in ballots. The May 26 thread was in response to Trump being fact-checked by Twitter for suggesting that mail-in ballots could lead to voter fraud.
Trump responded by accusing the Big Tech platform of “interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.” McDaniel shared a similar idea when she proclaimed that “No biased Twitter policy can change the fact that Democrats have launched an all-out assault on the integrity of our elections.”
“This Twitter ‘fact check’ system is such a joke,” McDaniel tweeted at the beginning of her epic takedown of Twitter. She continued by observing how:
“They cite liberals from outlets like HuffPost, Vox, even the ACLU. Who don't they cite? An actual SoS who said TODAY that in the last 5 years, 83% of the fraud in his state has been with mail-in ballots.”
This tweet was attached to a video of Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, who explained how absentee ballot-related voter fraud has led to convictions and that two elections had been overturned in his state. In the clip, the CNN host interrupted him and alleged that “in-person voting is more likely to result in voter fraud.”
McDaniel followed her tweet by showing that even the liberal media have explained the legitimate reasons for concern about voter fraud. She linked to The New York Times article headlined “Error and Fraud at Issue as Absentee Voting Rises.”
“Here’s The New York Times highlighting how ‘votes cast by mail are less likely to be counted, more likely to be compromised and more likely to be contested than those cast in a voting booth,’” tweeted McDaniel.
She then juxtaposed how “Twitter falsely claims there is no evidence of mail-in ballot fraud. That’s odd since NJ’s all-mail primary this month was ‘plagued’ by fraud concerns, with 3,000 votes set aside.” She reasoned, “Ballots were stolen out of mailboxes.” Included in the tweet was a NBC article headlined “Close Results In Paterson Vote Plagued By Fraud Claims; Over 3K Ballots Seemingly Set Aside.”
McDaniel suggested that Twitter is not only uninformed but has actually spread misinformation.
“Twitter cites Oregon, Utah, and Nebraska as mail-in models,” explained McDaniel. “None of these states mail ballots to inactive voters, which Pelosi supports. Dems are suing states to do this & it has caused chaos in Nevada. These states took years, not months, to switch to a mail-in ballot system.”
McDaniel made her point clear by mentioning how “Twitter falsely claims ‘only registered voters will receive ballots,’ yet makes no mention of the numbers of dead voters registered and duplicate registrations plaguing California.”
