Appearing on Fox News, Attorney General William Barr made the case that mail-in voting “opens the floodgates to fraud.”
Well, there’s a big discussion right now about mail-in voting. Hillary Clinton said, it’s fine, it’s fair.
Attorney General Barr:
Well, it absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud. Those things are delivered into mailboxes. They can be taken out.
There’s questions about whether or not it even denies a secret ballot, because a lot of the states have you signing the outside of the envelope. So, the person who opens the envelope will know how people voted.
There’s no – right now, a foreign country could print up tens of thousands of counterfeit ballots, and be very hard for us to detect which was the right and which was the wrong ballot.
So, I think it can upset and undercut the confidence in the integrity of our elections. If anything, we should tighten them up right now.
