Merrill: Trump Claim Destructive To The Fabric Of Our Democracy

October 21st, 2016 · 5 Comments · National Politics, News and Events

 Statement from Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise Merrill:

In response to recent suggestions that the presidential election could in some way be compromised, Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said, “The state of Connecticut goes through every precaution to ensure that elections are administered as freely and fairly as possible. Any claim to the contrary is not just irresponsible, it is destructive to the fabric of our democracy. The hundreds of elections officials in the state–including registrars, moderators, clerks and volunteer poll workers–are working tirelessly to serve the voters.

“The preparation that these officials go through includes accepting registration applications, confirming addresses, printing voter lists, checking the identity of voters at the polls, tallying votes, responding to complaints, auditing results, and so much more. Mistakes can be made and errors do occur. However, none of these alter the outcome of our elections. At the end of a very long Election Day, it will be the voters who choose the next president of the United States.”

    Well Lennie, there you go again, showing your resentment of Trump for what he did to you. This time you found a proxy. I wonder how Merrill’s investigation of the DTC chair of the 131st district is coming along. There’s never voter fraud in Bridgeport! Oh, except absentee ballots of course. But now the ‘queen of absentee ballots’ is the city clerk, certifying the actions of the city council.
    Yep, no possibility of fraud in Bridgeport.

      Tom, please get your facts straight. Trump did not do anything to me. I had no issue with him as a client. This presidential race is a different matter. He’s become a sociopath and a demagogue. I don’t begrudge you for supporting him. Live it up, if that’s what you want.

    I think regardless of who wins there will be civil unrest.
