    Republican Who Pushed 2020 Election Fraud Claims Accused of Election Fraud
    Republican Who Pushed 2020 Election Fraud Claims Accused of Election Fraud (newsweek.com)

    Representative Lee Zeldin, the Republican nominee to be New York's governor, has been accused of ballot petition fraud and may not be able to have his name appear on the Independence Party line on the November ballot.

    Following the 2020 election, Zeldin supported former President Donald Trump's claims that the 2020 election was fraudulent although no evidence has emerged corroborating the allegations. The GOP congressman voted against the certification of President Joe Biden's electoral votes in Arizona and Pennsylvania on January 6.

    Now, the New York State Board of Elections has invalidated nearly 13,000 signatures on petitions for Zeldin to appear on the Independence Party line on the ballot, the Times Union reported. That decision came after it was alleged by Andrew Kolstee, secretary of the state's Libertarian Party, that some 11,000 of Zeldin's signatures were merely copies of other pages.

    Once again, another Republican who claimed to be opposed to voter fraud has 13,000 signatures invalided as mostly duplications. As with the case with the Wannabe Dictator Benito Trump, he was not trying to prevent voter fraud, he was actually engaging in voter fraud by willfully lying that he had actually won the 2020 presidential election.

    As noted in another thread by Andrew Jackson:

    The report, "LOST, NOT STOLEN: The Conservative Case that Trump Lost and Biden Won the 2020 Presidential Election," looked at more than 60 court cases Trump and his supporters filed and lost in six key battleground states. It reached the "unequivocal" conclusion that the former Republican president's claims were unsupportable -- which Trump's own Department of Homeland Security as well as election officials nationwide debunked days after the 2020 election.

    Never heard of Zeldin before, but like so many others, he was quite right that fraud was rampant in 2020.

    Naturally, anybody speaking the truth will be punished by the system and its media.
