On Sunday morning, Sen. Bill Tallman (D-Bernalillo) responded to one of his constituent’s emails asking him to oppose S.B. 8, scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s pro-election fraud bill.
The constituent wrote in an email with the title “SB8,” “Good morning, I strongly oppose this bill. A secure election is paramount but this bill does nothing to ensure voting rights. In fact, it makes it easier to cheat. Vote no!”
The Democrat senator clapped back in a response to the email, writing, “I am beginning to get a feeling you want to suppress the vote.”
It is unclear how Tallman could have reached such a conclusion by the constituent merely having concerns over the bill which has provisions for automatic voter registration, ballot harvesting, and unsecured ballot drop boxes — all measures making it easy for election thieves to cheat.
In response to Tallman’s email posted on social media, New Mexicans responded.
New Mexico Alliance for Life executive director Elisa Martinez wrote, “So Sen @tallman5909 falsely thinks the thousands of New Mexicans against the bill he supports to upend voter rights can’t see past his lame, dishonest talking point.”
Another wrote, “So apparently Bill is good with cheating. Surprised he didn’t call you racist,” while another commentator added, “It’s all projection.”
S.B. 8 is currently being considered in the Senate, where it still must pass the chamber before being sent to the House of Representatives for a final vote. With only four days left of the legislative session, it is unclear its path to passage. But pro-election fraud advocates are desperately trying to have it rammed through both chambers and to the governor’s desk.
