Congressman Arrington Talks Election and Potential Voter Fraud
Thursday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, Congressman Jodey Arrington joined Dave and Matt to talk about his recent reelection, the presidential election and what it means going forward, Nancy Pelosi, potential voter fraud, possibly shutting down the government, his policies going forward, and more.
Arrington started the discussion by thanking everyone for his reelection, saying, "I'm honored, and profoundly grateful, and as excited as I can be to continue to be the voice for West Texas, and my fellow citizens in this district, and in Lubbock, and in our nation's capital fighting for our freedom and for the future of our country." Arrington was then asked about the presidential election and all the division in the country, and what he expects for the future. Arrington said that the democratic process and rule of law would suggest that this election is far from over, and that we shouldn't conclude anything until investigations have been done and things are settled in court. He says that it would be to undermine our democratic republic to not do things right. He went on to say that no matter what the outcome is, our country will not move forward with confidence in this election if we can't settle this properly.
Continuing that thread, Arrington was asked what he thinks about the potential voter fraud from this election and what will come of it. The Congressman explained that when you relax the voting laws, as the US recently has due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, that you open it up for fraud, corruption, and error. He went on to say that we are compromising the integrity, perception, and the public's confidence in the election, and that while he hopes it never happens again, he finds it likely to happen again if we continue things as they are.
The Congressman was asked about an advisor to Joe Biden who suggested the idea of shutting down the government for 4-6 weeks due to the virus, and what his opinion was about that. Arrington said that it's the single dumbest thing he has heard in a long time, and that it would unleash hell on everyone in America, ruin the economy, and put many people at serious risk. Arrington went on to say that he thinks anyone who think that's a good idea lives in a fantasy world, and he reminds us that we do not have an infinite supply of money.
Finally, Arrington was asked what his own priorities will be going forward. The Congressman answered that he will fight socialism tooth and nail from this point going forward, he will keep working on sustainable rural healthcare, highway bills, the next farm bill, and will stay focused on debt, which he thinks is the biggest long term threat to the country.
