Appearing Wednesday on MSNBC, former President Barack Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett said the federal government should make it “as easy as possible” for people to vote as Democrats continue to push for voting-by-mail in time for the November election.
“I think, as you know, earlier this week, Michelle Obama announced When We All Vote, an organization she formed — non-partisan organization, I might add — a call on Congress to ensure that we have the ability to have absentee ballots,” Jarrett replied. “We shouldn’t have to choose between our health and exercising our most fundamental right to vote.
“I think we should make it as easy as possible for people to vote, and unfortunately, we have seen in history now in our country where states have passed laws, practices have been put in place to suppress the vote,” she added. “We should be doing just the opposite.”
The false charge that the GOP is suppressing votes is the accusation Democrats use as cover for their push to facilitate voter fraud.
