ICYMI: RNC Chair McDaniel: Democrats and voter fraud in Nevada — here’s how it will impact you
In an op-ed published today, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel highlights how Nevada is a case study for the lengths Democrats will go to secure a voting edge with their attempt to remove election safeguards in the Silver State’s courts.
From launching ProtectTheVote.com to doubling its legal defense fund to 20 million dollars, the RNC has taken unprecedented steps to fight back against the Democrats’ attempts to weaken confidence in our elections. The RNC will continue to work to ensure that every vote that is legally cast will be counted and our elections will be free, fair, and secure.
That is why Chairwoman McDaniel sent a letter to the Nevada Attorney General earlier this week demanding an investigation into the shady backroom deal between the Clark County Commission and the Nevada Democratic Party to mail ballots to inactive voters, which has led to ballots being littered like trash and posted on community boards in Las Vegas, and whether the state’s election and open meeting laws were broken.
Bottom Line: While Democrats in Nevada and around the country are working to weaken confidence in our elections and invite the real threat of voter fraud, the RNC will fight to protect our vote.
Democrats and voter fraud in Nevada — here’s how it will impact you

Democrats say they want more ‘inclusive’ voting practices. They fail to mention just how inclusive their plans are: sending ballots to dead voters.
Nevada is a case study of the lengths Democrats will go to secure a voting edge.
First Marc Elias and Perkins Coie sued the state on behalf of Democrat groups, demanding election officials break laws against ballot harvesting, ignore signature verification requirements and send ballots to inactive voters the state believes moved away. They demanded more in-person voting locations while arguing voting in person was too dangerous for the June 9 mail-in vote primary.
Weeks before the election, live ballots are piling up at apartment complexes. Others are found in the trash. The Review-Journal reported one postal worker has already found thousands of ballots that are ‘no good,’ just ‘sitting in crates with no additional safeguards.’ Jenny Trobiani, who has worked for the U.S. Postal Service for over three decades, said the ballots were for residents who ‘had all moved or died.’ She even received one in the mail for her deceased mother.
Who is to stop a Democrat ‘field registrar’ from picking them up, signing them and dropping them off? That sounds outrageous. But it is what Democrat groups are seeking in their lawsuit.
The Elias lawsuit is explicit. It states the statewide ban on ballot harvesting ‘hamstrings’ the ability of Democrat groups, including the Democratic National Committee, the Nevada State Democratic Party, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Priorities USA, to ‘assist voters in making the transition to vote by mail.’
This is not unique to Nevada. Democrats are attacking the integrity of our elections across the country and circling the wagons.
…Their mission is to nationalize ballot harvesting, gut signature verification and voter ID laws and send millions of ballots to voters who have died or moved away, before November.
“That’s why the Republican National Committee and Trump campaign have launched our Protect the Vote effort, a digital platform which spotlights our efforts to protect against the Democrats’ assault on our elections as they push for sweeping changes, including vote-by-mail and more ballot harvesting amid the coronavirus pandemic.
‘Knowingly mailing a ballot to a wrong address is bad enough,’ a Review-Journal editorial recently argued. ‘Combining that with the elimination of signature verification is an open invitation to shenanigans and makes absolutely no sense.’
That’s why this week I sent a letter to Nevada Attorney General Aaron D. Ford requesting an investigation into Clark County’s backroom deal, and potential violations of state election and open meeting laws…
Our elections must be free, fair and secure. They should not enable voter fraud at the taxpayers’ expense.
