Shocking evidence of voter fraud in Nevada was presented by President Donald Trump’s lawyers, as the president vows to continue fighting for a free and fair election.
Dead people voted in the state and a Biden campaign van collected ballots, according to the president’s campaign.
Campaign alleges dead people voted
Nevada is one battleground where the Trump campaign alleges fraud worked to the advantage of Joe Biden, who media outlets declared the winner of the 2020 presidential election on Saturday. According to Trump, Nevada is turning out to be a “cesspool of Fake Votes.”
His legal team gave an overview of their findings at a protest in Clark County on Sunday, including ballots cast by the deceased and thousands cast by people who left the state, with Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union naming two dead people who voted, Rosemarie Hartle and Fred Sokes Jr. He claimed that “hundreds” of dead people may have voted.
A family friend of Hartle described the situation as “heartbreaking.”
Schlapp was joined at the protest by former Nevada attorney general Adam Laxalt, who called attention to problems with verifying the signatures on thousands of mail-in ballots in Clark County.
“I am positive, if you all got to see those,” he said, “you’re going to see countless mismatches.”
The Trump campaign has also received affidavits that describe ballot harvesting and election workers ignoring problems with signatures on large numbers of mail-in ballots.
The campaign says that one whistleblower in the state testified to seeing ballots inside of a Biden-Harris campaign van.
“The doors of the van were open, ballots were clearly visible, ballots were open with letter openers, and ballots were filled in and resealed in envelopes,” Schlapp said. “These people who were involved in this activity then decided to create a human shield around what they were doing in the van.”
The state’s Democratic officials have blankly dismissed the fraud claims, as they have generally done in other states where Trump is challenging the election, calling them “garbage.”
President Trump has said that he will win the 2020 election if only “legal” votes are counted, but Democrats have insisted that the fraud claims have no basis. Nevertheless, millions of Americans have doubts about the election’s outcome.
