California has a new law, passed at the end of 2017, that allows any person to turn in a completed ballot on behalf of any other person, which has led to process dubbed “ballot harvesting.”
At the end of Election Day, three Congressional seats in Orange County, California alone were projected were won by Republicans, only to flip to Democrats days after, when absentee ballots were counted.
In California’s 39th Congressional District, Democrat Gil Cisneros beat incumbent Rep. Young Kim (R-Calif.) by less than one percentage point when all was said and done. In California’s 45th Congressional District, Democrat Katie Porter ousted incumbent Rep. Mimi Walters (R-Cailf.) in similar fashion. The same happened in California’s 48th Congressional District, where Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) was beaten by Democrat Harley Rouda.
AB 1921, which changed the rules to allow anyone – not just a family member – to deliver a filled-in ballot on behalf of another person, is a likely explanation for how so many absentee ballots showed up in the wake of Election Day. The bill reads:
Existing law requires that the vote by mail ballot be available to any registered voter. Under existing law, a voter who is unable to return his or her vote by mail ballot may designate his or her spouse, child, parent, grandparent, grandchild, brother, sister, or person residing in the same household as the vote by mail voter to return the vote by mail ballot. Except in the case of a candidate or the spouse of a candidate, existing law prohibits the return of a voter’s vote by mail ballot by one of those designees who is also a paid or volunteer worker of a general purpose committee, controlled committee, or any other group or organization at whose behest the individual designated to return the ballot is performing a service.
This bill would remove those restrictions and instead authorize the designation of any person to return a vote by mail ballot.
And Democrats took full advantage of the rule. One ballot harvester even called it a Democratic party operation.
“Yeah, we’re offering this new service, but only for like people who are supporting the Democratic party,” said a young woman caught on home surveillance video. “It’s a service. I’m just trying to pick up your ballot.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, 250,000 such ballots were harvested and returned in Orange County alone.
The new law is disturbing for the integrity of American elections. Boxes of ballots could literally be dropped off and counted without regard for whether they were legitimate. Not to mention, according to a U.S. Senate candidate from California, the state did away with hand-counting of absentee and provisional ballots. We reported:
Big League Politics spoke with a U.S. Senate Candidate from California this week who explained that the laws surrounding mail-in ballots in the state have been changed to make the counting process much less rigorous.
James Bradley told Big League Politics that the state has passed a law allowing for mail-in and provisional ballots to be machine counted. Previously, the signatures on such ballots had to be individually verified in order for the ballots to be counted. Since the safeguard of signature verification was nullified, Democratic mail-ins and provisionals have vastly increased, according to Bradley.
In total, six Congressional seats in California were flipped from red to blue after original tallies had them in the bag for Republicans during the midterm elections.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
