Chuck Schumer Hits Back At Rand Paul For “Trying To Stop Citizens From Voting Legally” — Promises To Protect Voting Rights

Senator Rand Paul is taking some heat for a tweet in which he suggested that Democrats were ‘stealing’ elections by ensuring that citizens could vote. Now Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is responding, and he says Democrats will continue to work to protect voting rights that are under attack.

In a bizarre tweet quoting an American Conservative article, Paul accused Democrats of using a particular trick to ‘steal’ an election: contacting potential voters, providing them with absentee ballots, ensuring they’re legal, and then collecting and counting the votes.

Or, to put it another way, carrying out the business of an election.

He’s getting hammered on Twitter by everyone who sees how ridiculous that is — ‘stealing’ an election by counting legal votes?

Now Senator Schumer has joined the chorus, assuring voters that Senator Paul’s position doesn’t represent the view of the entire of Congress. He, too, called out Paul for appearing to endorse the notion that giving all voters access to ballots is unfair to Republicans.

“This Senate will vote on protecting voting rights, the most fundamental liberty we have as citizens,” Schumer promised.

Since Donald Trump lost the 2020 election, the Brennan Center counts 19 states enacting 33 different laws that make it more difficult for people to vote. Meanwhile, Congressional Democrats have pushed for Federal legislation that would protect voting rights for all citizens around the country.

Trump and his allies continue to claim that the 2020 election was ‘stolen,’ despite no evidence to support the claim — unless, of course, one defines legal votes as ‘stealing.’
