Chris Wallace claims “no record of massive fraud or even serious fraud from mail-in voting”

During a recent segment on Fox News, host Chris Wallace countered President Trump’s argument that mail-in voting would result in voter fraud issues.

Chris Wallace:

There really is no record of massive fraud, or even serious fraud from mail-in voting … When people get their ballots and mail them in themselves, no history of fraud at all.

TheHill reports when anchor Ed Henry asked if it was possible that a ballot mailed in could be swapped with another by someone receiving the mailed-in ballot, as Trump has suggested, Wallace was skeptical.

“What he’s saying is you can’t trust the U.S. mail,” Wallace replied. “I don’t know, that strikes me as kind of a reach here, and the history is that mail-in ballots are honest, and there was very little indication of fraud.”

“But when people get their ballots and mail them in themselves, no history of fraud at all,” Wallace later added.

Trump this week threatened to withhold federal funds from Michigan if state leaders decided to move forward with a mail-in voting plan.

On Thursday, he offered a series of hypothetical problems during a listening session with African American leaders in Michigan.

“Who knows who’s signing it? Who knows it gets to your house? Who knows if they don’t pirate?” he said. “Obviously there’s going to be fraud. We’re not babies.”
