LEAK: Trump's press secretary voted by mail 11 times in 10 years. She's arguing that you shouldn't be allowed to
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, the entire Trump administration, and the Trump family, are arguing that voting by mail shouldn't be allowed, insisting that it creates election fraud. President Trump has been very vocal about this recently, saying "We can't let large scale mail-in ballots to take root."
But, what they're not telling you is that Trump's Press Secretary voted by mail in every Florida election she has been in since 2010, according to the Tampa Bay Times in an explosive new report. President Trump has also voted by mail in at least three different elections. This was fact-checked by Snopes.
McEnany tried to excuse Trump being allowed to vote by mail by saying: "the president is, after all, the president, which means he’s here in Washington. He’s unable to cast his vote down in Florida, his state of residence.”
She thinks the president should be afforded more freedoms than every day average Americans. Her statement proves that.
She spent a large amount of time on Tuesday, one day before this report, trying to convince people that mail-in ballots were wrong. One example she used was saying that "excess ballots sent to inactive voters piled up in Las Vegas trash cans."
She quoted a low-level postal worker in Clark County there.
“What’s going to happen w/ these things, they’re NOT SECURED at all & there are THOUSANDS of them just sitting here. This just seems fraudulent to me, something stinks here.”
She also quoted reports that mail-in ballots from other states like South Carolina somehow ended up in Maryland. Again, while these reports should be investigated, she's implying that mail-in ballots shouldn't be allowed, a statement that Trump has made time and time again. She has yet to say why she's allowed to vote by mail, though.
There's simply no evidence to suggest that there is rampant widespread fraud with mail-in voting. There is evidence though that limiting mail-in ballots can reduce the amount of people willing to vote, which would serve Trump's re-election interests.
