WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the news of multiple mailbox break-ins at Central Virginia post offices, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“It’d be a lie to say that our electoral system was ever 100 percent fraud-proof–bad actors are always looking for a way to commit fraud. But it’s clear that the push for widespread voting by mail is opening the door to heightened threats to election integrity. This cycle, bad actors need only find the nearest mailbox.
“What happened in Virginia is a product of the push this cycle for widespread voting by mail. This year, with large swaths of the electorate encouraged to vote via mail, we are likely looking at just one of many possible ballot harvesting incidents to come. Incidents like these exact a toll on the public’s faith in the electoral process.”
FreedomWorks will host the second of two planned activist fly-ins next week, October 12-14, in Washington, D.C on the issue of election integrity.
