The Republican National Committee’s rapid response director is criticizing Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) voting remarks about her dog, insisting she is endorsing voter fraud.
Steve Guest took to Twitter on Thursday with a clip of Warren’s recent discussion with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s Senior Advisor Symone Sanders and Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) Stephanie Taylor.
At one point during the discussion, the three discussed voting and the upcoming election, which was when Warren quipped about her dog Bailey voting for Biden. Guest appeared to take offense to Warren’s remarks and tweeted his reaction.
“Elizabeth Warren endorses voter fraud, says her dog will be voting Democrat,” Guest tweeted. “‘Bailey is definitely going to vote in November and he’s voting Democrat all the way. Bailey for Biden.’ Voter fraud is not a joking matter.”

Shortly after Guest’s tweet began circulating on the social network, his remarks led to the popularization of the hashtag #Dogs4Biden.
Democratic supporters have flooded Twitter with photos of their dogs in response.

Over the last several weeks, President Donald Trump expressed concern about the possibility of voter fraud as he and the Republican National Committee (RNC) filed a lawsuit against California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) over mail-in ballot applications.
Despite Trump’s claims about voter fraud, Newsom previously pushed back against the president as he noted there is “no evidence” to suggest voting by mail contributes to widespread voter fraud, as previously reported on IJR.
The Democratic governor highlighted the benefits of mail-in voting and absentee ballots as he noted the safe history of that option.
Newsom said, “Mail-in ballots, absentee ballots are well utilized all across the spectrum, all across this country and have been done so thoughtfully and safely for a generation.”
It is legal to vote by mail in the United States and the president has also done so himself.
