Presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared on WISN’s “Up Front” on Sunday, where the former vice president said there was “no evidence whatsoever” that mail-in voting could be affected by fraud.
WISN host Matt Smith asked Biden, “President Trump tweeted today. He went after a number of states that are beginning to send out absentee ballot applications. Wisconsin is considering doing the same ahead of the November election. Is there concern this could lead to more fraud? This push to vote early?”
Biden replied, “I will tell you what, you mean Trump fraud? Look, he’s sitting in the White House filling out absentee ballots to vote in a primary in Florida. Now, why is it not fraud when he does it, and anyone else would do it?”
“There’s no evidence whatsoever,” Biden added.
Yes, he actually said this. https://t.co/Yc4QyuOTJG

“We ought to be able to make sure that we have ballot by mail, early voting, and in-person voting,” he continued. “You’re able to do that if, in fact, you have enough poll workers ahead of time, they’re trained, and scientists come in and tell you how you sanitize a polling place so people can still vote.”
Biden insisted, “There are ways to do that, but don’t do what you did last time in Milwaukee. Don’t shut down. I don’t know how many scores of polling places in minority neighborhoods and they only have five places open, so people have to line up close to one another for a long time.”
President Trump tweeted on Sunday: “The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history. People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and ‘force’ people to sign. Also, forge names. Some absentee OK, when necessary. Trying to use Covid for this Scam!”

President Trump is right to worry about the integrity of mail-in voting. Joe Biden is delusional to trust it.
