Dr. Chhoda analyzes some more comments from Stephen Scalise – United States House of Representatives Minority Whip and representative for Louisiana’s 1st congressional district, serving since 2008 – during today’s interview on Fox Business.
KEY COMMENTS FROM CONGRESSMAN SCALISE:
This is about Nancy Pelosi just trying to grab more money and leveraging and holding families hostage and businesses hostage during this pandemic.
This is really a fabricated crisis by the speaker. Look, we had elections in Louisiana this weekend. I went and voted in person on Saturday and it was a smooth process. There are sanitizers, I had a mask on. There were no issues at all with voting in person. However, if somebody wants to vote by mail, that’s always been an option and every state does it a little bit differently. But what Speaker Pelosi has been trying to do again long before the pandemic is mandate that every single person on voting rolls gets a ballot mailed to them.
No state has 100% accurate voting rolls. And so if you have millions of ballots just out there, who knows where and houses where they might have registered people illegally, they would get ballots. That’s not a safe system. That’s not going to protect the integrity of people who are voting legally.
So why don’t we make sure that the process works properly, not mailing ballots to everybody on the rolls, even people illegally on rolls would be ludicrous.
