Democrats are doing everything they can to turn the coronavirus crisis into a political advantage.
Even former First Lady Michelle Obama is getting in on the act.
And Michelle Obama just shook up the 2020 election with this major announcement.
For decades, Democrats have sought to conduct elections through mail-in voting.
Now, they see the coronavirus crisis as their opportunity to implement it nationwide.
And former First Lady Michelle Obama is the latest Democrat to jump into the fray, throwing her weight behind a lobbying campaign to force Congress to federalize America’s elections.
Currently, states are in control of their election processes. But if Democrats get their way, Congress will takeover the election process and mandate universal mail-in voting in the next coronavirus relief bill.
Michelle Obama provided a statement to Axios saying, “There is nothing partisan about striving to live up to the promise of our country; making the democracy we all cherish more accessible; and protecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones as they participate in this cornerstone of American life.”
The Democrat-sponsored bill Obama is backing was first introduced by Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR), Suzan DelBene (WA), and Jamie Raskin (MD). Ron Wyden (OR) introduced companion legislation in the Senate.
This isn’t the first time the Obama’s weighed in backing mail-in voting. After the Supreme Court smacked down Wisconsin Democrats’ attempt to extend the primary voting deadline, the Obama’s vocally criticized the ruling.
Democrats are pushing for mail-in voting nationwide specifically because it renders voter ID laws moot and allows for massive voting fraud and ballot box stuffing.
President Trump and other Republicans oppose this scheme because conservatives know, no Republican will ever win a national election again if the country adopts nationwide mail-in voting.
Democrats know that’s true, and it’s precisely why Michelle Obama and other big name Democrats are trying to use the coronavirus crisis to bully Republicans into sealing their political fates.
