AOC Exposes GOP’s Voter Fraud Lies During Hearing

AOC just showed how much the GOP lies about voter fraud.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used a congressional hearing on elections to expose Republican lies about so-called “voter fraud.”

The GOP has used scaremongering about supposedly rampant “fraud” to pass legislation restricting the rights of voters, especially minorities inclined to support Democrats. Ocasio-Cortez responded by citing scientific evidence during a hearing of the House Oversight Committee on Thursday.

“Let’s talk about… the myth of voter fraud. According to MIT election data and science lab – only about .00006% of total mail-in votes cast are results of voter fraud. That’s less likely than being [struck] by lightning,” the rising Democratic congresswoman noted.

Despite the lack of evidence in favor of voter fraud, Republicans have insisted that the practice has been pivotal in elections. Most recently the party has falsely alleged that voter fraud occurred after President Joe Biden resoundingly defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
