Election integrity has been on all of our minds since the November 2020 elections. It’s clear to me that there is good reason to perform a forensic audit of every state to determine exactly what happened that day – and where any irregularities occurred. Americans have the right to expect fair elections, free from fraud, and to be confident that their votes count when they head to the ballot box.
I addressed these issues and more in my appearance on the program On the Record with Ed Harding and Janet Wu on Sunday, July 25, 2021. See it here: OTR: Geoff Diehl explains criticism of Baker, support of Trump wcvb.com.
OUR CAMPAIGN IS COMMITTED TO ELECTION INTEGRITY EFFORTS IN EVERY CITY AND TOWN ACROSS THE COMMONWEALTH.
Here in Massachusetts, we have uncovered several upsetting trends, even beyond the extended mail-in voting changes:
· Deceased residents having voted in the 2020 election
· Ballots being kept in a warehouse and not being counted
· Irregularities with our voting machines
We will not just accept this as our reality in Massachusetts or in any other state. Americans deserve better.
Yet on Friday, July 16th, a hot summer afternoon when no one was paying attention, the MA legislature decided to extend mail-in voting until December 2021. We all know that mail-in voting was fraught with issues in the past election.
The fact that the Democrat-led legislature continued it at this time, and that our Governor and Lt. Governor failed to publicly push back on it, shows how little respect they have for ensuring free and fair elections for the people of Massachusetts.
For that reason, I am calling on Governor Baker, Lt. Governor Polito, and the Legislature, to work with the Secretary of State’s Office and to perform a full forensic audit of the Massachusetts 2020 election.
I fully support the Massachusetts Republican Party’s Voter ID ballot initiative, to ensure that whoever is voting – whether in person or absentee – must verify his/her identity as a necessary first step to combat fraud in the election process. I will combat the extension of mail-in voting parameters, or any other efforts that will make it easier to manipulate the voting system.
Your support of my campaign will help me continue to get these issues out across the Commonwealth and in front of more voters.
