(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – While the Democrats and the Deep State have created ample drama to dispel and distract from allegations that the 2020 election was fraudulently impacted in favor of now-President Joe Biden, many questions about the integrity of our election systems as a whole remain.
The Republican National Committee, based on allegations of fraud made by lawsuits filed on President Trump’s behalf in 2020, is now taking up the task to ensure that future elections are conducted in a more secure manner.
The Committee on Election Integrity, Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel has said, will examine what went wrong in our last general election.
One issue she pointed to was the broad increase of mail-in and absentee ballot measures which was done in several states, unconstitutionally in some cases, which was the contention of the lawsuit the state of Texas filed in the Supreme Court (that was ultimately rejected).
“What we saw this past election – states undoing important safeguards, bypassing the proper legislative processes, and changing election laws in the eleventh hour – was deeply troubling and brought chaos and uncertainty to our sacred democratic processes,” she said.
According to Fox News, the new panel aims to restore confidence in our election system and will focus on transparency and voting policies and practices.
“Among them: the panel will push to ensure poll watchers are allowed to properly observe counting processes, ‘meaningful’ voter ID laws are codified, and all Americans have faith in our elections process,” they reported.
McDaniel characterized election integrity as “one of the most critical issues we face.”
Then-President Trump and other Republicans raised the alarm about election integrity for months ahead of the general election as states rush to provide more access to mail-in and absentee voting.
Indeed, much of the contention the Republican Party had with the outcome of the 2020 race related to mail-in or absentee ballots, both in the manner in which they were verified and the constitutionality with which rules related to such balloting were changed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Trump campaign and other entities, including the RNC, filed a number of lawsuits in the months after the general election contending as much, but they were all dismissed on the basis of standing, rather than merit.
This means that the courts simply didn’t think courts were the place to scrutinize the allegations, rather than that the cases were weak. Typically, courts prefer for state legislatures to handle something as politically significant as the outcome of an election.
The RNC’s new election panel will be chaired by Florida Republican Party chairman Joe Gruters and co-chaired by national committeewoman Ashley MacLeay of the District of Columbia.
