Thank you, Mike Der Manouel Jr., for speaking up for us this week on Commentary News for News Talk 580 and 105.9 KMJ regarding ballot harvesting. Last week the Democrats tore into us for providing secure ballot drop off boxes at designated locations in Fresno County. The Democrats went crazy and threatened us in many ways. It is so hypocritical because it was them who made ballot harvesting legal three years ago!
Here is Mike’s statement that was aired last week.
“As things turn out when power hungry elected officials issue a cease and desist, there is no downside in telling them to pound sand. Last week California Democrats whose voters are so lazy evidently, that they actually advocate to complete strangers to harvesting their ballots instead of casting them voluntarily where enraged at the State Republican Party created its own secure locations and boxes for collections ballots for its voters. Secretary of State Alex Padilla and Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued an order for the Republicans to stop and Republicans told them to pound sand while they pursued the matter in court and Republicans did prevail provided their ballot boxes are manned by people which is easy. In 2018 Republicans went to bed having won five congressional seats in California only to have later lost them all, when Democrats harvested ballots were collected and counted. That is not going to happen in 2020. Lessons learned here, stand up to power hungry tyrants. Use the courts when the law is on your side. Never stop fighting. Politics is war. Stop pretending it isn’t. This is commentary on the News with Mike Der Manouel Jr. for News Talk 580 and 105.9, KMJ.”
