President Trump’s reelection campaign has sued two Iowa counties over their mail-in ballots. The Trump campaign, the RNC and several Republican groups filed the lawsuits Wednesday against Linn County and Johnson County.
The plaintiffs alleged Iowa Democrats are planning to send out ballots that are already filled in, which the voter would only need to sign and send back.
Previously, Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate mandated that mail-in ballots were to be sent out blank.
The president has suggested these latest developments show that Democrats really intend to commit voter fraud with mail-in ballots.
“They don’t have the money to do the universal mail-in votes. It’ll be the greatest rigged election in history. It’ll be the greatest fraud ever perpetrated, other than perhaps than what they did to my campaign, where they spied on my campaign.” – Donald Trump, 45th President of the United States
He went on to say mail-in ballot fraud will not happen because he will not approve any bills that fund it.
