Michelle Obama is using this pandemic to push “mail-in” voting for every state in the nation. The former first lady is using her own organization, which features a slew of Hollywood celebrities, to make sure this happens for the 2020 presidential election. She’s claiming the coronavirus makes it “too risky” for Americans to go to the polls. Well, poor Michelle was made to regret it. Don’t miss this.
Michelle Obama is championing an expansion of vote-by-mail options with her voting rights group, When We All Vote, which is endorsing federal legislation for the first time. Michelle’s organization is co-chaired by Hollywood stars and musicians: Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monae, Chris Paul, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw.
The former first lady and the celebrity-backed organization announced Monday their support for legislation introduced by a handful of Democratic lawmakers during the COVID-19 crisis, according to Axios.
The legislation gives all registered voters the ability to vote by absentee ballot and makes it easier for voters to obtain mail-in ballots. The group will encourage U.S. citizens to press their lawmakers on expanding access to vote-by-mail.
“There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life,” Obama said in a statement.
Michelle started campaigning for this mail-in voting scam by making the crazy accusation last week that Americans in Wisconsin were putting their health at risk by going to the polls.
“Today, Wisconsin voters had to choose between making their voice heard and keeping themselves and their family safe,” the former first lady tweeted. “No American should ever have to make that choice. We must do better to ensure voting is safe for all voters. The latest Wisconsin voting information is below.”
Michelle Obama also added a link to her pet celebrity organization called When We All Vote:

The Obamas live-in adviser, Valerie Jarrett, was also dispatched to the networks to pander to Americans about this mail-in voting scam.
“It was just deeply, profoundly concerning,” said Valerie Jarrett, who is also the board chairwoman of When We All Vote.
“Our goal is to just try to make sure we maximize the number of citizens who can participate in that most fundamental and important responsibility,” she added.
Valerie’s just deeply concerned about your well-being. Isn’t that touching? Michelle and Valerie claim this isn’t a partisan issue. No, they are just so worried about Americans risking their health by going to the polls in November.
Let’s be clear. By November there will be no issue about going to the polls. Michelle and her cohorts are using this pandemic to push a scam that leads to ballot harvesting.
“Ballot harvesting” was legalized in California in 2016, and it was first used in the 2018 midterm elections. It allows anyone to drop off someone else’s mail-in ballot at a polling station. There is no process for vetting or verifying those delivering the ballots — no background checks or identification requirements. Democrats dropped hundreds of thousands of ballots off at polling stations in 2018, helping Democrats as they flipped seven Republican seats.
President Trump alerted the country to this latest scam Michelle is backing.
“These ballots are very different from 100% Mail-In Voting, which is ‘RIPE for FRAUD,’ and shouldn’t be allowed!” Trump wrote.
“Republicans should fight very hard when it comes to state-wide mail-in voting. Democrats are clamoring for it. Tremendous potential for voter fraud, and for whatever reason, doesn’t work out well for Republicans. @foxandfriends,” the president tweeted.

California’s “ballot harvesting” law has yet to be challenged in court. It is one reason that California remains a one-party state, with little prospect for change in the foreseeable future.
Nancy Pelosi is pushing for the mail-in voting scam to be added to any COVID-19 rescue bill. She already has the proposal written up. It says every state:
A) shall permit a voter to designate any person to return a voted and sealed absentee ballot to the post office, a ballot drop-off location, tribally designated building, or election office so long as the person designated to return the ballot does not receive any form of compensation based on the number of ballots that the person has returned and no individual, group, or organization provides compensation on this basis; and (B) may not put any limit on how many voted and sealed absentee ballots any designated person can return to the post office, a ballot drop off location, tribally designated building, or election office.
In other words, paid party operatives can literally truck thousands and thousands of ballots to the polls, provided they earn a salary or fee and are not paid by the ballot.
It is a practice that is known in Third World countries as “ballot stuffing,” and it is outlawed in every democracy, no matter how poor — even in countries where the physical and administrative obstacles to voting are far greater than in the world’s most developed economy.
Nancy Pelosi has so far struck out at getting the mail-in voting scam added to the virus legislation, which is why they have tapped Michelle Obama to rally supporters. Well, Americans are finding out why the Democrats are so hot and heavy to make sure mail-in voting passes, and they know it has nothing to do with a pandemic or a national emergency.
