Why am I not surprised?
A group connected to former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is calling for not counting some military ballots — just in time for the 2018 midterm elections.
The Washington Times reports that the Center for American Progress, “after years of accusing states of ‘voter suppression’ … wants to make it tougher for overseas military to vote in the name of election security.”
The group, run by Clinton insider John Podesta and funded in part by George Soros, works to “educate” the public on “progressive ideas.”
Business Insider reports that more than 22 states allow military personnel to vote electronically because they may not have access to mail services.
The Times reported that Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams, a Republican, sees a political motive behind the move.
“They don’t believe someone who works on a submarine should be allowed to vote. We do,” he said.
The Center for American Progress graded each state on ballot security. No state received an “A.”
Colorado Peak Politics thought the liberal group was being partisan with its recommendation that types of military voting be stopped, saying: “Perhaps they think that Navy SEALS can swim ballots ashore, hand them off to Army paratroopers who can parachute into Colorado to drop off the ballots?”
