(Tea Party PAC) – The Democrats are falling all over themselves to turn the coronavirus pandemic into an opportunity to spin the 2020 election in their favor.
It’s almost as if they want to prove the conspiracy theorists right!
Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) is exposing their crooked plot to use the recently-passed relief bill to legalize ballot harvesting across the land, a move which will most certainly work in the Democrats’ political favor.
He told Breitbart News that the $3 trillion omnibus package passed in the House on Friday virtually “federalizes elections” to end states’ voter ID requirements and measures taken to prevent ballot harvesting.
“We had the $3 trillion giveaway,” said Gohmert of the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act, dubbed the HEROES Act, while speaking with Breitbart News Tonight on Friday.
He went to add, sarcastically, that “[The bill] included really must-pass important things, like preventing states from having voter ID requirements before they can vote. We’ve got to allow more voter fraud, and the voter ID requirement is just an impediment to more voter fraud. So that was important to have in this bill that the Democrats passed today.”
“It’s codified ballot harvesting for the whole country,” the congressman continued. “So the Democrats all over the country, when they lose an election, they can go out and pick up ballots from people and say, ‘Whoops, that person didn’t really win because we’ve been able to manufacture a lot of votes that we needed to get this person defeated.’”
Gohmert continued, “That will make ballot harvesting legal for the whole country, and even though the Constitution is clear … elections generally are afforded to the states and the people, but this changes the Constitution and basically federalizes the entire election process.”
The House also changed its own rules for voting on legislation allowing for remote voting, which Gohmert said was “unconstitutional.”
Gohmert said, “Of course, the Constitution — Article 1, Section 5 — says that for each House to do business, and I’m quoting, ‘a majority of each House shall constitute a quorum to do business,’ and so if we have all 435 members of Congress, then according to that, we’ve got to have 218 present in the chamber in order to have a constitutional vote on any bill.”
Bretibart notes that “The House’s rule change to allow for remote voting violates the Constitution’s requirement for representatives’ physical presence on the House floor when voting on legislation, maintained Gohmert.”
