Still licking their wounds from a crushing Election Night defeat, Democrats struggle to remain relevant as Trump and his Republican controlled Congress continue to shut down their liberal agenda.
The Democrats know they are running on borrowed time, and they are so desperate to regain power and control that they’ll do anything.
However, the latest Democrat scandal just hit a new low even for them, and frightening enough, they almost got away with it.
The Democrats know they don’t have the votes to win elections, so they are looking to outside sources in order to secure new votes.
In a recent attempt to gain support, The Democratic Party of Nebraska gave voter registration forms to refugees, knowing refugees are sympathetic to the liberal agenda and would vote Democrat if given the opportunity.
Under the guise of “welcoming refugees” to the state of Nebraska, Democratic Party Chairwoman, Jane Kleeb, gave gift baskets to each refugee.
But hidden in each welcome basket was a voter registration form with contact information “in case they had questions”.
The Democratic Party Chairwoman actually posted a video on Facebook highlighting what was in each basket.
“The chairwoman drew the camera’s attention to envelopes with the party logo:
Inside each basket, there’s also a letter from the Nebraska Democratic Party welcoming the family to Nebraska. It’s signed by me as chair of the party—and then we include a sticker in there for them to put on their car, and also include the voter registration form and just has our contact information in case they want to reach out and have any questions.”
And if it wasn’t for Republican State Senator John Murante calling attention to the situation, the Democrats would have started a dangerous precedent for other states to follow.
“Nebraska State Senator John Murante (R-Gretna) publicly asked in a letter Monday that Democrat Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb disclose the names of any refugees who received voter registration forms tucked into welcoming baskets. The Chairman of the Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee urged that Kleeb acts quickly to inform local election officials in affected counties since primary elections are scheduled in Lincoln and Omaha on April 4.
Murante notes in his letter that failure to assist local officials could risk illegal voter registrations, “diluting the voting power of legal voters”. Worse, he notes, some refugees could mistake the offer of voter registration to mean they are indeed eligible to vote, potentially complicating a pathway to naturalization, should they choose to do so.”
Nebraska, like many states, does not ask for proof of citizenship to verify voter registration.
Democrat Party Chairwoman Jane Kleeb knew this, yet decided to hand out voter registration forms to refugees anyway.
But upon realizing the controversy, Democrats deny the forms actually went out in the baskets, and claim they were removed before any of the baskets were actually delivered. Insisting they did no wrong, Kleeb said she wanted refugees to feel “embraced” by the Nebraska Democratic Party.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports:
“Kleeb said last week the goal wasn’t to encourage voter fraud, but to “make sure that folks are embraced by the Nebraska Democratic Party.”
The baskets were donated to two refugee resettlement agencies, Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska and the Refugee Empowerment Center.
Both organizations have said they removed the registration forms and other political materials before sharing other items from the baskets.”
Do you think refugees should have received voter registration forms in their welcome basket?
What do you think should be done about all the refugees who did receive a form?
