Abrams: ‘You're More Likely to Be Struck by Lightning’ than Find Voter Fraud
Democrat says 'voter fraud is nearly mythological'
Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams continued to push mail-in voting, arguing that voter fraud is a “myth” and that you have more chance of being struck by lightning.
During an appearance for The Barbara Lee & Elihu Harris Lecture Series event, Abrams claimed President Donald Trump believes that “Republicans can’t win” if states allow citizens to vote by mail.
“Donald Trump voted by mail in 2020. He believes that it was okay for him," Abrams said.
"He believes that it is safe for him,” Abrams added.
“He believes that it was allowable. And yet he refuses to allow the same to others.”
Abrams also said that “voter fraud is nearly mythological.”
“You are more likely to be struck by lightning than for there to be an incident of voting fraud,” Abrams said.
“That’s because most people aren’t trying to vote twice or three times. They’re trying to vote once.”
The Democrat added that said voting by mail is the “safest and most secure” saying that every state knows how to do it securely if they are granted more resources.
But Abrams is wrong claiming there is no such thing as voter fraud.
As Neon nettle reported in April, roughly 28.4 million mail-in ballots went missing since the 2012 election, according to newly revealed federal data.

Records show ballots were lost in the last four election cycles.
The data is from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission and the Election Administration and Voting Surveys and shows records for the 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018 election cycles.
In that period, almost 30 million mail-in ballots went missing after being sent to registered voters.
Last year, Abrams blamed "voter impression" after she lost her election in the race for governor.
Abrams also falsely claimed that she won the race for governor last year against Republican Brian Kemp.
"We had this little election back in 2018," Abrams said while speaking at the National Action Network event.
