In response to the unprecedented wave of fraud in the presidential election of 2020, Sen.Tim Scott (R-S.C.) introduced electoral integrity legislation.
For Scott, the bill represents an effort to thoroughly investigate what happened and recommend ways to avoid the irregularities that deceived the electoral will of the nearly 75 million voters who voted for the re-election of the president, Donald Trump, according to Townhall on Jan. 6.
“We cannot move forward without looking back and scrutinizing the issues that led to millions of Americans losing trust in our election system,” Scott said on his website.
For Scott, among the possible causes of the scandalous fraud could be haste and lack of planning, not to mention the possible bad intentions of the Democrats and their allies, including the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
He added, “While every election has a modicum of fraud, the circumstances around the pandemic led multiple states to make rushed and perhaps ill-planned changes to their election systems weeks ahead of the presidential election.”
In his draft, Scott proposes the creation of an Electoral Integrity Commission and other provisions to regain citizens’ confidence in the electoral process. He mentions President Ronald Reagan’s thoughts on how fragile freedom is.
“‘Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction,’ and now more than ever, it is our duty to regain the trust of the American voter,” Scott warned, according to Townhall.
The commission would comprise nine members appointed by the Senate majority leader and nine by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Scott believes that the impact caused by the CCP Virus would have affected the proceedings and therefore requests that the commission he proposes be created to study those effects.
The implications of voting by mail, proper voter registration, and other practices that will strengthen voter confidence in the country should be included.
According to the investigations and the large amount of evidence gathered by the legal team of President Donald Trump, the web of deceit was created by many actors, at different levels and even different nationalities.
With only 14 days left until the crucial date in the U.S. Constitution for the inauguration of the president who will lead the country for the next four years, there is still a chance that justice will be done to the nearly 75 million voters who elected President Trump.
