Fraud, Supreme Court, Republican Party discussed on Nightside with Dan Rea


That the law in Pennsylvania was crystal clear that they had to be in By the time the polls closed and justice Alito ordered that those ballots be held out separately, and, uh, my understanding is that Even if you didn't count those ballots that it wouldn't have made a difference in the outcome of the election in Pennsylvania, and I thought that was a prudent thing to do, because I do think that election officials in each state are required by the U. S constitution to follow the rules for their state. And, uh, you know, I don't I would never let a Supreme Court represents the state and that is another question. I think it was a good thing. We didn't have to have it resolved by the Supreme Court states because It turned out there bringing their votes at stake to make any difference. But that's not fraud, though, either when you know when people are voting good faith and are told, you know here a deadlines. Um they're voting in good faith that's not fraud. All right. The Republican Party has been in a multi year, multi decade campaign to make it harder for people to vote. Where they think they're not going to vote Republican and that's just exactly. It's quite ironic that you know they're complaining about really is about how it got too easy to vote. Which meant they lost the election because if the people really speak, the people are much closer to the middle of the road. Democrats in the ER to what has turned into an extremist Republican party these days. Well, let me let me jump in here and the devil's advocate this thing a little bit because I I know. I believe that personally, People ought to have an I D and show that idea at the polling place. We show it everywhere else. And if that's voter suppression than Then so be it. I don't believe that that is. Have you ever shown up at the polls and been told that you have already voted? Let's see. No, no. Okay, your news That would be it would be caught your view. But Jordan let me ask you a question. Why? And when did this This controversy erupts? It is with it because there was a lot of vote fraud, or was it because Republicans noticed it was too easy for people to vote? Democratic? Ah, I'm not suggesting for a second that it isn't all political that, uh, Stacey Abrams in Georgia, for instance, is marching. Headstrong to get people registered and do all kinds of things to move the needle, and I think this happens in every election, but, um, I think it's Z. Well, it is a good thing, but I also think it's unfair to taint all Republicans or many Republicans. As as being so you know, suppressing vote. I just don't see that It's been a major element of the Republican strategy to stay in power. Two of their main pillars or a level Yeah, it's become Uh, suppress majority will one is vote suppression. The other is Jerry Mander, which both parties do that And so I don't understand that it's not. It's not a bipartisan thing, but it's been a major. Elements of their strategy of staying in power. And so, you know, I mean, I think you know it. Zob Vesely. There's nothing wrong with making sure that people who are entitled to vote don't vote. That's not what this was about The reason that that that the movement towards voter idea and making it hard, harder and harder tol have the right idea and that sort of thing. Has all been about suppressing votes. It hasn't been about for partisan reasons and hasn't been about safeguarding against election front. But none of them will tell the truth when they supported. Well, I'm telling you the truth. From my vantage point. It makes perfect sense that it's It's logical and I can't understand for the life of me. How people can be. Ah beat songs I d and and expect to survive in this society we live in when voting is so precious and important, but that's just me. I'm not a Republican operative or democratic operative. I can guarantee a Susan We've got to run. I'm so sorry Late for break. We'll come right back and continue right after these words outside.

Coming up next
