“The Democrats are trying to use the coronavirus and the court system to eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections, and that’s how they are not only trying to suppress the economy, but they are trying to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nation-wide mail-in ballot system, and there are so many other ways that they are trying to eliminate election integrity,” said Jenna Ellis on KHOW’s Dan Caplis show (at 13 min 30 sec).
Ellis went on to say that the Democrats moves are using the “coronavirus as a temporary pretext to then simply manipulate elections in the future.”
“The Democrats are trying to remove and eliminate nearly every safeguard and that should trouble every American, regardless of your party,” said Ellis.
Ellis did not immediately return a call seeking evidence to back up her claim.
