"Your government sent 1.1 million dead people stimulus checks. Wonder how many of these folks also voted absentee?" KY Senator Rand Paul said on Twitter Monday.
Washington Examiner pinned a telling piece: The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration reported this summer that 1.1 million coronavirus aid checks were sent to people who had already died. The checks totaled nearly $1.4 billion.
After the report, the watchdog recommended that Congress “provide Treasury with access to the Social Security Administration’s full set of death records, and require that Treasury consistently use it, to help reduce similar types of improper payments.”
Rep. Thomas Massie questioned the integrity of voting via mail as well by tweeting when most “of what shows up in your mailbox is junk mail.”
“75% of what shows up in your mailbox is junk mail... and some people thought this would be a good venue for holding a presidential election?” he tweeted Monday.
Sen. Ted Cruz, joined Fox’s Maria Bartiromo Sunday saying President Trump could still win the 2020 election with legal battles in states like Pennsylvania and Georgia.
“Historically, mail-in votes are much more likely to be disqualified in a recount than in-person votes. Generally, in-person votes — they’re conducted at the polling place, and they usually stand. That means what we’re likely to see in the next few weeks as the recounts go forward is that Joe Biden’s very, very narrow majorities in some of these states, those totals are likely to drop if we see mail-in votes when they’re examined being invalidated as contrary to the law,” Cruz said.
Senator Cruz believes Trump “still has a path to victory, and that path is to count every single legal vote that was cast, but also not to count any votes that were fraudulently cast or illegally cast.” the article said.
