Three Republican Groups Sue California Governor Over Mail-In-Vote Order

The Republican National Committee (RNC) and two other Republican groups on Sunday filed a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom over his executive orders to use mail-in ballots for the November election.

California was the first state in the country to commit to sending mail-in ballots to all registered voters for the November election, a move responding to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Democrats continue to use this pandemic as a ploy to implement their partisan election agenda, and Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections,” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement.

The RNC said that voting by mail creates an opportunity for fraud. Republicans, including U.S. President Donald Trump, have claimed mail-in voting is susceptible to rigging.

“No state that conducts all-mail elections automatically mails ballots to inactive voters because it invites fraud, coercion, theft, and otherwise illegitimate voting,” it added.

The lawsuit asks for Newsom’s order to be barred as unlawful and was filed by the RNC, the National Republican Congressional Committee, and the California Republican Party.

Numerous studies have found little evidence of voter fraud connected to voting by mail. Democrats say it is necessary to counter health risks from the coronavirus by helping to prevent crowds at polling places.

Last Wednesday, Trump denounced plans to expand voting by mail in Michigan and Nevada. He briefly threatened to withhold federal funding for the two states but dropped the warning after an avalanche of criticism from Democrats.

  1. Washington State votes by mail. No polls. In 2004 Dino Rossi, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, WON the election by a comfortable margin. The Seattle Democrats went ballistic and DEMANDED a recount. What do you know…those Settle Democrats “found” a bunch of “misplaced/overlooked” votes for Christine Gregoire, the Democratic candidate that closed the gap. So, the Democrats DEMANDED another recount. And—surprise, surprise—the Seattle Democrats found even more “misplaced/overlooked” votes for Gregoire. Now Rossi and Gregoire were running neck to neck. You guessed it…the Democrats DEMANDED a third recount, and—surprise, surprise—found JUST ENOUGH VOTES TO OVERTURN THE ELECTION. WHAT A SURPRISE…?!?!? Of course, once they had overturned the election by a few votes the recounts STOPPED. What was remarkable about all those “misplaced/overlooked” votes is that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WAS FOR CHRISTINE GREGOIRE AND NOT A SINGLE ONE WAS FOR DINO ROSSI…. What are the odds of THAT…? The Democrats used the mail-in system to manipulate the outcome of that election and STOLE it from the Republicans. I do not trust mail-in systems that the Democrats can manipulate. They tend to “find” votes “lost” in the system to their advantage, and steal elections.

  2. And the first person it should apply to is Trump. NO MORE FAKE VOTES FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. Oh sorry, I forgot “Do as I say not as I do”

  3. Good! It’s about time republicans stop letting dems get away with their crap.

  4. “84,000 duplicate records and more than twice that number with political party mistakes
    “https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2019-08-09/duplicate-voter-records-audit-california-motor-voter-system That could result in 84,000 extra ballots being mailed out, completed and sent in. That’s just one problem with mail in voting. In person voting could take care of that problem. Incomplete information in the system resulted in at least a half dozen illegals being able to vote. Yeah, that they know of. “an admission by state officials last October that some 1,500 non-citizens, people legally allowed to live and work in the U.S, had been mistakenly registered to vote.” It’s as simple as indicating that you’re a citizen when you register at the DMV. Since illegals are allowed to get a driver’s license in CA, all it takes is the touch of a button and you get a ballot. Easy to cheat.

  5. The Democrat cheaters are at it again. They’ll have 300 million votes for Biden in CA alone.

  6. Its time to arrest Newsom and charge him with treason along with any other governor that attempts to cheat the vote.

    1. You must mean Trump if anyone needs to be hung for treason its Trump a firing squad would be fine too.

  7. Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections.” RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel

    Translation: How the hell can the American Fascist Oarty win elections if we are not allowed to do voter suppression and voter intimidation?

  8. Repukelicans can’t win a game of checkers with a blind monkey, let alone an election, without cheating and rigging the system, and voter intimidation and suppression.

    1. That’s strange, the only one to rig a primary in 2016 was the Hillarrhoid. The only one to cheat during debates in 2016 was the Hillarrhoid. The only ones that attempted to throw out the result of the election were the Democrat celebs, first urging the delegates to unlawfully change their vote, then begging the Congress to refuse to accept the vote. It would seem that the Democrats are the ones that cheat, not Republicans. Of course, Democrats lie and cheat.
