On Thursday, far-left New Mexico Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver relished in the news that left-wing coastal congressional Democrats, Reps. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Jamie Raskin (D-MD) are launching a House Oversight investigation into the company contracted for the Otero County audit of the 2020 election.
Toulouse Oliver dubbed the County-sanctioned audit a “fraudit” and claimed it “sabotages our constitutional right to vote.” It is unclear how merely recounting votes and documenting abnormalities in the ballots cast is doing anything other than strengthening the integrity of elections. With the audit findings, New Mexicans can definitively know the results of the 2020 election in Otero County.
She wrote, “Arry, weeks ago, I said that this was a vigilante audit. Anyone supporting the ‘fraudit’ undermines public confidence in election security and continues to spread lies about our elections here in New Mexico. The fraudit is a fraud itself.”
“Millions of Americans have sacrificed their lives to vote in this country. Anything that sabotages our constitutional right to vote should be taken very seriously, and I am grateful to the House Oversight panel for proactively investigating this. It’s pure voter intimidation,” Toulouse Oliver continued.
The Secretary of State supported far-left Democrats’ proposals for an extreme pro-voter fraud bill that would enshrine voter suppression into New Mexico law during the 2022 Legislative Session. Some of these proposals included allowing widespread ballot harvesting, letting ballots be counted one week following an election, unsecured ballot drop boxes, and other corrosive measures.
She also teamed up with Attorney General Hector Balderas and the mainstream media to try and stymie participation by citizens in answering canvassers’ questions that could verify if they voted in the election.
It appears Toulouse Oliver is gaslighting those seeking truth in Otero County by accusing them of exactly what she is guilty of — voter intimidation. If nothing went wrong in the 2020 election, why do everything possible to stop the audit of the supposedly “secure” election?
