The brain trust of Possum Hollar brought their best and brightest together to come up with a plan to ensure that the 2022 Pie Fight is not rigged, the AP Reports:
ATLANTA (AP) — Republican activists who believe the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump have crafted a plan that, in their telling, will thwart cheating in this year’s midterm elections.
OK, so what is it?
The strategy: Vote in person on Election Day or — for voters who receive a mailed ballot — hold onto it and hand it in at a polling place or election office on Nov. 8.
Isn’t that what they usually do, you ask?
The plan is based on unfounded conspiracy theories that fraudsters will manipulate voting systems to rig results for Democrats once they have seen how many Republican votes have been returned early. There has been no evidence of any such widespread fraud.
If enough voters are dissuaded from casting ballots early, it could lead to long lines on Election Day and would push back processing of those late-arriving mailed ballots. Those ballots likely would not get counted until the next day or later.
And that would effectively end the worst nightmare I could think of: stopping the count at midnight and saying the election is over. They would disenfranchise their own voters.
But wait there’s more!
The calls to hold onto ballots until the last minute have grown louder in recent weeks, according to a review of social media accounts by The Associated Press.
So who’s the brainiac behind this?
“It’s a lot easier to catch any fraud,” [said Mein Pillow Guy Mike Lindell], who has promoted the last-minute voting strategy on podcasts, told the AP in a recent interview. Lindell, through various events, has sought to prove that voting machines were manipulated to favor Biden in 2020.
And fellow Scissorheads, all of us should have a sign of relief right there.
