Great job by Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA11), calling out Republicans’ gaslighting, bulls*** and lying about Trump’s public statements last summer that voting by mail would supposedly lead to massive fraud (note: there was essentially ZERO voter fraud in the 2020 election, or in any other election for that matter).
“Am I making this up, as Mr. Jordan apparently would have you believe, that the President of the United States last summer…publicly said voting by mail would lead to massive fraud? Did he say that or am I imagining that?…It was Donald Trump…who was planting the idea, aided and abetted by disruptive changes proposed by a new Postmaster General and a compliant Board of Governors that actually eroded public confidence in the ability to vote by mail. That wasn’t a Democratic narrative, that was a Republican narrative by the President of the United States and his enablers…I didn’t vote to overturn an election, and I will not be lectured by people who did about partisanship!”
