A video from 2004 recently resurfaced and is highlighting Rep. Jerry Nadler’s (D-N.Y.) views on paper ballots. The clip shows the New York Democrat in a meeting on Capitol Hill where he was voicing strong resistance to mail-in voting.

Nadler was responding to a citizen who was expressing support for the voting method by suggesting that hand-counted paper ballots are among the most reliable. The representative disagreed by saying in his experience paper ballots are highly susceptible to fraud.

“At least with the old clunky voting machines that we have in New York, the deliberate fraud is way down compared to paper,” he stated. “When the machines break down and they vote on paper, we’ve had real problems.”

Nadler went on to offer a method he described as “optic scan with paper” where paper ballots are counted electronically.

The video reappeared after Nadler accused President Trump of opposing mail-in voting because he believes not enough people would vote for him.
