Watch this flashback clip from 2004 in which Rep. Jerry Nadler claims that paper ballots are extremely susceptible to fraud, and that he personally knows of vote malfeasance that would make your “head spin.”
Today of course Democrats and their media allies claim voter fraud is a right wing myth but in 2004 they were singing a very different tune.
NADLER: “Thank you. I just — it’s a very tempting point. I just, as a very experienced practical politician from New York, feel constrained to observe that in my experience in New York, paper ballots are extremely susceptible to fraud.
And at least with the old clunking voting machines that we have in New York, the deliberate fraud is way down compared to paper.
When the machines break down, they vote on paper and we’ve had real problems.
So that’s a — that is — there’s got to be a way — there’s got to be a way — I’m simply observing that as a problem. There’s got to be a way of getting the best of our methodologies.”
WOMAN: “But, in fact, the MIT studies have shown that hand-counted paper ballots are among the most reliable. And at least if there’s a miscount, you can discover it. You can’t discover miscounts with these machines.”
NADLER: “Well, there may be optical scan with paper. I want paper trail. I want paper somewhere. But pure paper with no machines, I can show you — I can show you experience which would make your head spin.”
