While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are pushing for mail-in voting and ballot harvesting in the newest stimulus relief package, Republicans are making moves to ban ballot harvesting.
House Rep. Rodney Davis introduced a bill that will ban the practice, which allows any joe schmo off the street to deliver mail-in ballots on behalf of others. In other words, it's a cheating smorgasbord.
The practice, legalized by Democrats in California in 2016, is banned in most of the rest of the country, except for immediate family members. It is also unknown in the rest of the world, because of its high susceptibility to fraud.
In 2018, California Democrats used “ballot harvesting” as part of a successful effort to flip seven Republican-held seats. Hundreds of thousands of ballots were dropped off by Democratic Party operatives. Republicans have been unable to do the same because Republican voters apparently do not part with their ballots as easily as Democrats.
The new Republican bill, called the “Election Fraud Prevention Act,” states that the "practice of ballot harvesting in California creates significant vulnerabilities in the chain-of-custody of ballots because individuals collecting ballots are not required to be registered voters and are not required to identify themselves at a voter’s home, and the State does not track how many ballots are harvested in an election."
It continues, "In North Carolina, a congressional election was invalidated due to fraud associated with ballot harvesting committed by a political operative, and it is unlikely such activity would have been detected were it not for the prohibition against ballot harvesting in the State; and ballot harvesting invites electioneering activity at home and creates the possibility of undue influence over voters by political operatives."
Davis said about the newly presented bill, "We cannot allow politics to interfere with the integrity of our electoral process. Ballot harvesting, in the way House Democrats are trying to nationalize, allows any individual to pick up any voter’s ballot for any reason and deliver it to the polling location, completely unchecked."
"This ‘pandemic relief’ bill from House Democrats would actually jeopardize public health by allowing ‘ballot brokers’ to go door to door with a blatant disregard for social distancing guidelines." He continued, "Not to mention, allowing political operatives to pick up ballots is unnecessary when mail ballots already have pre-paid postage."

Waters tweeted, "Trump doesn’t care about the 80,000+ people who’ve died from #Coronavirus! He only wants to open up the economy so he can go back to having his white power pep rallies! The death & economic devastation we are facing is b/c Trump failed to act early & called #COVID19 a HOAX!"

San Diego Confirms What We've Been Suspecting All Along About The Virus
Last week, Supervisor Jim Desmond of San Diego gave us some of the information we've been looking for to confirm not simply a suspicion, but what we've already considered to be factual knowledge.
The number of deaths that are being reported by the media and government officials are not accurate. I would even venture to say that the real number of deaths would only be about 10-20% of what we're told.
