The largest county in Ohio admitted that it has mailed almost 50,000 ballots erroneously, with 49,699 voters in Franklin County set to receive ballots belonging to other people. 21% of the total ballots the Franklin County Board of Elections is sending out will arrive at the wrong address, and it’s quite likely that those who receive them are not going to cast the ballot of somebody else.
In an attempt to rectify the situation, Franklin County is now sending out 49,699 replacement ballots to the individuals who wrongly received false ballots. This raises serious questions as to the fate of the wrongfully mailed ballots, as the official county election materials will remain in public circulation even after those who received them get their authentic ballot.
“The board has already begun the process to print, stuff, and mail the 49,669 replacement ballots and expect them to be sent to the United States Postal Service within 72 hours for delivery,” announced the Franklin County Board of Elections. “We want to make it clear that every voter who received an inaccurate ballot will receive a corrected ballot.”
Ohio has trended Republican in recent Presidential elections, with President Donald Trump winning the state by more than eight percentage points in 2016. It remains a must-win for the President in reelection, and his electoral prospects will be all but doomed if he fails to win the state’s 18 electoral college votes. Franklin County itself is largely Democrat, with Hillary Clinton winning 60% of the county’s popular vote in 2016.
The novel concept of entirely mail-in elections is shaping up as a disaster, especially in states that are essentially improvising a mail-in process for the very first time after conducting largely in-person elections throughout their history.
“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate
So much for moderation and unity…
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”
Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
