Attorney General Bob Ferguson

OLYMPIA - President Donald Trump caused an uproar on social media after suggesting that the 2020 election by delayed. The president posted the following Tweet on Thursday:

“With Universal Mail-In Voting (Not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office stated that there is no evidence that mail-in ballots increase voter fraud.

Ferguson issued the following response: 

“President Trump’s statement that he may unlawfully delay the November election is undemocratic, un-American, and, sadly, entirely predictable,” Ferguson said. “For months, my legal team has been preparing for the possibility that the president might attempt to unlawfully delay the election. If that happens, we will see President Trump in court — and we will win.”

Congress is the only entity with the power to delay a presidential election.

Trump will be re-elected

Oh Really

Do you even get your news from any source beside right wing talk radio and fox news? What you are taking for facts are most likely opinions shared by like thinking individuals. It may make you feel good, but it doesn't give you an objective view of the nation or the world.

Oh Really

You Trumsters crack me up. Is there no lengths you will go to for your man? You are critizing non Trumpters for being alarmed about the latest crazy bs to fall out of his mouth. If one of your arch enemies (non right winger) said the same thing you would (rightly) be up in arms. Loyalty at any cost. Kinda sad.

Definitely on target with the itching powder!

Trump know he can't legally delay the election and he won't do it without consent from both the House and Senate. Never happen. Love the way he gets the ignorant bent out of shape. Filthy Bob is blowing his horn and about to spend more of our money.

The election will occur on time. Trump is just talking, its his right to make things up. He has no authority to postpone an election and even other GOP members have scoffed at the notion as well. One way or the other it will get done no lawsuits needed

Stfu deplorables

BTW Deplorables, Central Washington in Wenatchee is no longer accepting Covid patients from Grant. Spokane also full. Its over the mountain to your favorite Democratic city! Enjoy!

This shyster uses the wrong finger when pointing to people-- Finger pointer bob? where is our refund for the car tabs ---- As for mail in votes- I just read-- if its true- postal service has lost overtime pay- and the automatic mail sorting machines are not running as long as they used to be.-- AGAN. This is something i read on line.

@the real JohnQPublic

Bob's been wasting your money preparing for a lawsuit to be filed just in case. Do we get a refund on his and his staff's salaries when it doesn't come true?

File your lawsuit bob and the go into your crying closet and regain your composure.

Keeping an out of control wanna be dictator in check is hardly a waste of our money. And shyster is an interesting slur to use, figures it rolls off the tongue of a trump lover.

@the real JohnQPublic
