Republican National Committee file lawsuit against California Governor hoping to stop mailing ballots
The current US government in the person of Donald Trump and the Republican Party are trying their best to maintain their posts in power. Back in January, Trump was firmly on his feet, but because of the pandemic, everything changed and now the opposition has found a way to overthrow the president by means of voting by mail.
California gov. Gavin Newsom, trying to protect Americans from becoming infected with COVID-19, elected a remote vote and signed an executive order to send ballots. The plaintiffs, represented by the Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, and California Republican Party, consider this illegal and filed the lawsuit.
Despite the assurances of the proponents of this type of voting that fraud is practically impossible, and those cases that are identified cannot significantly affect the final result of the vote, now one case of indiscretion in New Jersey, and possibly falsification, has given rise to that determining the future of the United States through such an unreliable system can be more dangerous than coronavirus.
"Governor Newsom’s executive order is the latest direct assault on the integrity of our elections," RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel said, reports Axios. "Newsom’s illegal power grab is a recipe for disaster that would destroy the confidence Californians deserve to have in the security of their vote."
Donald Trump backed up the statement with his tweet.
The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history. People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and “force” people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 24, 2020
In their defense, Democrats say that the lives of the American people are much more important than the obligation to personally cast vote into the urn. Also, vote by mail will avoid mass gatherings that could aggravate the situation and infect even more people.
"We are meeting our obligation to provide an accessible, secure, and safe election this November. Sending every registered voter a ballot by mail is smart policy and absolutely the right thing to do during this COVID-19 pandemic," California Secretary of State Alex Padilla said in a statement.
