Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman mocked the infamous $1 million reward proposed by Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Tuesday by reporting an apparent attempt at voting fraud by a Republican in the Keystone State.
“Hey, Governor Patrick- it’s your counterpart in Pennsylvania. I’d like to collect your handsome reward for reporting voter fraud. I got a dude in Forty Fort, PA who tried to have his dead mom vote for Trump,” Fetterman tweeted. “I’d like mine in Sheetz gift cards.”
The tweet came just hours after Patrick announced in a press release that he would pay up to $1 million from his campaign to incentivize people to come forward and report voter fraud across the country, despite no evidence that suggests widespread voter fraud occurred in the 2020 presidential election. Patrick said that he supports President Donald Trump’s “efforts to identify voter fraud” but offered no legitimate evidence to back up his claims.
“Whistleblowers and tipsters should turn over their evidence to local law enforcement. Anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest and final conviction of voter fraud will be paid a minimum of $25,000,” Patrick said in the press release.
In a Wednesday appearance on CNN, Fetterman doubled down and further discussed the alleged attempt at voter fraud.
“The fraud that we know that has occurred in Pennsylvania in this cycle is a registered Republican in Luzerne County tried to vote for Trump with his dead mother’s ballot,” he said. “Other than that, no we have not witnessed any voter fraud here in Pennsylvania.”
The presidential race was called for Joe Biden on Saturday after the president-elect received Pennsylvania’s 20 Electoral College votes. While the grueling process of counting provisional and mail-in ballots is still underway in several counties throughout the state, Biden leads Trump by just over 50,000 votes. Read from source….
