Can’t She Ever Be Honest? Pelosi Lies About Claim That ‘200,000 Wisconsin Voters’ Won’t Get To Cast Ballots In 2020
Fake impeachment allegations, fake claims about voters, and a fake political party…
By Jon Dougherty
(TNS) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) lied her way through the impeachment of President Donald Trump, and now she’s lying about an effort in Wisconsin to clean up voter registration rolls ahead of next year’s elections.
On Thursday, Pelosi sent out a tweet claiming that 200,000 people from the Badger State wouldn’t be able to cast a ballot in the 2020 elections due to a “voter purge” by those mean Republicans in the state.
It’s beyond alarming that more than 200,000 registered Wisconsin voters will be prohibited from voting.
Less than a year from the election, we must ensure @WisDems have the resources to respond with a massive voter registration effort.
Don’t agonize. Organize! ? https://t.co/pTZPttXf6B

But…but…how could that be?
Yes, well, it isn’t at all like that. In fact, Molly Beck, a political reporter for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel newspaper corrected the record after thousands of people had retweeted the Speaker’s false narrative.
Dear 2,000 people who retweeted this: It’s not correct.

From her article:
An appeals court Wednesday let stand — for now — an order that more than 200,000 people be removed from Wisconsin’s voter rolls because they may have moved.
In a two-page order, the Court of Appeals rejected a request to immediately block a decision by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Malloy to quickly take the voters off the rolls.
Instead, the court said it wanted to hear from those who brought the lawsuit and gave them a Monday deadline to submit a filing.
At issue is the voting status of thousands of people who election officials believe might have moved because they filed changes of address at the post office, registered vehicles at new addresses or provided new addresses to other government agencies.
Even the Left-leaning Politifact lit up Pelosi’s pantsuit for her whopper.

“Pants on Fire!” lie time.
More from Beck:
But anyone in this group has multiple opportunities to regain their status as registered voters. Voters who are removed from the rolls — correctly or not — can re-register online, at their clerk’s office or even at the polls on Election Day.
Wisconsin is one of 21 states that allows voters to register at their polling place the day of the election, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Addressing this at the polls would mean filling out paperwork and providing proof of residence such as a driver’s license, property tax bill, utility bill, bank statement, paycheck stub, lease or workplace ID. That means some people — we have no idea how many — could be unable to vote if they can’t provide proof of residence at the polls and don’t re-register beforehand.
Fake impeachment allegations, fake claims about voters, and a fake political party. Pelosi’s batting .1000.
As for voting, Democrats have done all they can to ensure that it is as crooked a process as possible.
You can’t get on board an airplane, inside a federal or state courthouse, or buy a six pack of beer without a photo ID. But somehow, Democrats sell us the lie that requiring people to have a photo ID to prove who they are so we can protect the sanctity of our elections is beyond the pale.
