FLASHBACK: Joe Biden Advocated for Election Reform in Clip from 2007

Isn’t that interesting…

Published

In a clip from 2007, then Delaware senator Joe Biden advocated for election reform, saying that the federal government should obligate states to use the same machines because they would leave paper trails and thus greatly reduce the possibility of pulling off fraud.

The clip was dug up by Twitter user @cameronlackney and first posted by @fleccas.

“How are you gonna keep it from us being able to be in a position where you could manipulate the machines, manipulate the records. The one way to do that is—I think we should pass a federal law mandating that the same machines with paper trails be mandatory for every federal election. That will be a multi-billion dollar bill for the states because the states will have to make a choice then. They’ll have to make a choice whether or not they have two machines. We can’t mandate, as you know, state elections. We can’t tell the state of Delaware or Ohio or Texas what machines and what method they use to vote in their state elections. But we can do it federally. So in a nutshell I think we should be mandating that we have a paper ballot with the standardized machines, standardized requirements,” Biden said.

We wonder if Joe Biden will be open to the same idea if he becomes president…

Mitch McConnell Takes One Final Dig at President Trump, Saying He “Fed Lies” and “Provoked” the People Who Stormed the Capitol

Par for the course.

Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave one final speech attacking President Donald Trump before the latter leaves office Wednesday. He repeated the false claim that Trump incited protesters to storm the Capitol building and said that Congress will “move forward” to continue addressing the serious challenges facing the United States.

A transcript of McConnell’s remarks is as follows:

The last time the Senate convened, we had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people. And they tried to use fear and violence to stop a specific proceeding of the first branch of the federal government which they did not like. But we pressed on. We stood together and said an angry mob would not get veto power over the rule of law in our nation. Not even for one night. We certified the people’s choice for their 46th president.

Tomorrow, President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris will be sworn in. We’ll have a safe and successful inaugural right here on the west front of the Capitol, the space that President Bush 41 called ‘democracy’s front porch.’ And then we’ll move forward. Our work for the American people will continue as it has for more than 230 years. There are serious challenges that our nation needs to continue confronting. But there will also be great and hopeful opportunities for us to seize. Certainly November’s elections did not hand any side a mandate for sweeping ideological change. Americans elected a closely divided Senate, a closely divided House, and a presidential candidate who said he’d represent everyone. So our marching orders from the American people are clear. We’re to have a robust discussion and seek common ground. We are to pursue bipartisan agreement everywhere we can, and check and balance one another respectfully where we must. And through all of this, we must always keep in mind that we’re all Americans, we all love this country, and we’re all in this together.”

Only a couple hours before the Capitol incident McConnell rejected Trump’s claims of voter fraud and a stolen election and said he would “respect the people’s decision” to elect Joe Biden. Then it was reported the following week that McConnell privately expressed his pleasure at Trump’s second impeachment and praised it as an opportunity to purge him from the GOP.

Because of the 50-50 tie between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are said to be working out a power-sharing agreement. Sources familiar with the details say that although Democrats will be in charge of setting the schedule, both parties will equally split the number of seats they hold on various committees.
