The Republican National Committee has discovered several instances of election fraud in findings published in a report by its Committee on Election Integrity.
After an extensive investigation, the committee cited multiple instances where Democrat politicians used the Covid-19 pandemic as an excuse to change or establish new election rules that most likely led to Joe Biden’s rise to the White House, Washington Examiner reported.
“The pandemic brought chaos and comprehensive changes to voting processes beginning in the spring primaries and lasting through the post-election process,” said the report, created by RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
According to the RNC report, Democrats “exploited the pandemic” for party gain.
“The COVID-19 pandemic strained our elections system and most election officials did their best under trying circumstances,” it stated. “It’s also true that Democrats and their liberal allies, including some elected officials, exploited the pandemic and used it as an excuse to haphazardly expand mail voting and loosen important integrity measures that are broadly supported by Americans and which prevent irregularities, boost confidence, and create a more secure elections process.”
One of the biggest discrepancies the report alleges is “automatic mailing of ballots to voters who did not request them” in states such as New Jersey and Nevada which “had no tradition of heavy absentee voting and were unprepared to scale up their processes.”
There were also multiple cases where state courts “ignored laws enacted by their legislatures, such as ballot delivery deadlines,” which explains how Democrats used the emergency powers and the courts to, “tear down these key safeguards that give Americans confidence in our elections,” the RNC report states.
Other abuses found were related to unnecessary restrictions that were placed on poll watchers and vote-count observers.
“The Committee understands the need for social distancing, but officials were often far too aggressive in restricting access of poll watchers and observers,” it said, referring to several instances in Pennsylvania where Republican poll watchers were locked out.
“Poll watcher access has been a longstanding issue, and COVID exacerbated it considerably,” the findings continued. “It is also clear that officials watered down verification processes in order to handle the influx of absentee ballots. This included lowering review standards for counting ballots and insufficient ballot duplication procedures.”
The committee said there were other “festering” problems found in the voting system that were not “specifically attributable to COVID and need to be fixed,” nonetheless. Specifically, the report stated these include “failures of states to clean up their voter rolls and security vulnerabilities in election voting systems and infrastructure.”
In Clark County Maricopa County, and other controversial hotspots of discrepancies in the 2020 election, there were thousands of instances where dead and out-of-state voters reportedly received ballots (some of whom had a vote cast in their name), in addition to many more outrageous examples of suspicious activity.
Pointing out a lack of public transparency, McDaniel’s committee said “the public deserves” better “access to important election records and data.”
“It is clear there must not be a repeat of what happened in the 2020 election,” the report continued. “While some of the problems were outside of the control of the Republican Party and its elected officials, the party needs to do everything in its power to ensure existing laws are protected and enforced by the courts, enact meaningful election reforms that will address problems, and vigorously monitor election processes.”
In the months following the 2020 election, GOP-led states have made it a priority to restore faith in our elections and pass election integrity bills as the 2022 midterms approach.
