SACRAMENTO – California Secretary of State Alex Padilla issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s renewed lies about massive voter fraud.
“It is sad that the president continues to recycle his same old lies. Frankly, it is tiring to have a conspiracy theorist in the White House. His dishonesty and his rants dishonor the thousands of local elections officials and volunteers who work hard to administer our elections with integrity. Trump was even forced to dissolve his sham election commission, which was a waste of taxpayer dollars and failed to provide a shred of evidence to support his voter fraud lies.”
““This is just another distraction from the very real issues facing our democracy. Trump has repeatedly failed to acknowledge Russia’s attempts to interfere in the 2016 elections. And he’s wasted valuable time and resources that could have gone to securing our election systems.”
