Many members of the mainstream media have spent months dismissing the suggestion that last year’s presidential race was tainted by voter fraud.
One such figure who bucks this trend, however, is Fox News Channel personality Tucker Carlson, who promised his audience this week that evidence exists to bolster the fraud argument.
“It’s worth knowing”
According to the Washington Examiner, Carlson made his pledge on Monday after reminding viewers that election integrity was not something on which he had spent a lot of time focusing.
“There are some very irresponsible claims going around that in the end couldn’t be proven because they weren’t true,” he said. “But there are also some claims that may be true, and it’s worth knowing.”
For those who “care about democracy,” Carlson said it is imperative to know whether fraud was a factor in the recent election.
“Well again, on Wednesday, we are going to take a very close look at that, including some new evidence from Fulton County, Georgia,” he vowed.
Expanding on the topic, Carlson went on to call out Vice President Kamala Harris for her recent claim that rural Americans would have a hard time complying with new voter identification laws.
“Desperate to make cheating easier”
During a recent BET interview, Harris declared that “there are a whole lot of people, especially people living in rural communities who don’t — there is no Kinko’s, there is no Office Max near them.”
As a result, she concluded that proponents of voter ID laws should “be clear about who you have in mind and what would be required of them to prove who they are” to avoid essentially disenfranchising certain groups.
“Of course, people have to prove who they are, but not in a way that makes it almost impossible for them to prove who they are,” Harris said.
For his part, Carlson mocked the assertion that rural voters are incapable of copying their identification — and his guest, conservative pundit Tammy Bruce, agreed.
Bruce noted that many rural Americans “are running businesses,” adding that “the question here besides the insult of it is: Why are the Democrats so desperate to make cheating easier?”
