Gingrich Pens Op-Ed

In a statement for The Epoch Times earlier this week, Gingrich claimed that electoral officials in Democratic Pennsylvania strongholds "exceeded their authority to give voters preferential treatment," but their work has been sloppy and the courts "must prevent them." destroy more evidence. "

He alleged that officials in certain Pennsylvania counties used a number of illegal practices to increase the number of votes that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden received, including treating voters differently based on where they live and directly manipulating the voter registration system in Pennsylvania through partisan activities. "

"In particular, poll workers illegally requested postal ballot papers in advance to determine whether they were missing a confidentiality envelope or did not contain the required information," wrote Gingrich. When the ballots were found to be flawed, voters had the option to correct or "heal" their ballots to ensure they were counted. In at least some cases, Democratic Party officials were even given electoral rolls to contact in order to heal their ballot papers. "
