I am appalled at the video showing materials, apparently absentee ballots, being stuffed into a ballot box outside the Bridgeport City Government building during the September 2023 Primary election.
Appalled, yet not surprised.
I have served as the President of the Connecticut Republican Assembly (CTRA) for the last three years. Before and during my time leading CTRA, I have seen the Republican party highlight election integrity issues in Connecticut. Again and again. And now yet again.
Those issues have been largely ignored by the Democrat party.
But now Democrats are accusing other Democrats of election interference and ballot fraud. This apparent voter fraud issue needs to be added to the Agenda for the summer CGA Special Session.
This, as well as early voting which apparently usurps the Constitution, should be nullified.
These issues must be corrected immediately to ensure readiness for the November election.
That is why CTRA has issued a call to action.
CTRA is asking all members and concerned citizens to contact their State Senator and Representative, along with members of the Government Accountability and Elections Committee, including State Senator Rob Sampson, who is the Minority Ranking member, along with State Representative Gale Mastrofrancesco.
Please make sure you include a link to the ballot box stuffing video (or this article), and demand a return to pre-Covid COVID election laws in your note.
