Secretary of State and candidate for WV governor, Mac Warner, was apparently in Wheeling Monday:
Warner explained how hard his office has been working to prevent voter fraud:
”Since I’ve been in office working with those clerks, we’ve taken off over 400,000 names. Not people, but names off of that. These were people who were deceased, convicted felons had moved out of state duplicates. So, we’ve cleaned up the voter rolls, we’ve removed those 400,000 opportunities for fraud that no longer exist.”
400,000 names? Really? I’ll bet thousands of them have illegally voted. (Probably for Joe Biden. Or perhaps, Hunter Biden.)
Maybe not. As the Bluefield Daily Telegraph reported in late September:
According to West Virginia Secretary of State Mac Warner, a resident of Kanawha County pleaded guilty to voting in both West Virginia and Florida through the use of absentee ballots during the 2020 General Election.
The case is the third voter fraud conviction from the 2020 election to be prosecuted this year in West Virginia, according to Warner.
Three cases in three years? It’s an epidemic.
And wait a minute. Am I to believe that Mac Warner, an Ogden Newspaper favorite, was in Wheeling on Monday and there was not a major front page Wheeling Intelligencer story with accompanying large picture (see previous post) about him in yesterday’s or today’s newspaper? Not to worry, “timeliness” is not an Ogden news value, a story will be in later.
Warner gets endorsement
It’s quite an endorsement:
Warner got national attention for a Michael Flynn endorsement? Really? (Regular readers of this blog will remember that Warner was featured at Flynn’s right-wing crazies gathering (“The Great Awakening”) in Las Vegas over Labor Day weekend. I wrote about it here.)
Is a WTRF a credible news source? Last summer, I wrote about a totally bogus story from 2022 that WTRF listed under its "Trending Stories":
Biden's Daughter alleges sexual abuse in diary
As I wrote back in August, the "story" has zero basis in fact and has been refuted by a number of fact checkers. Regardless, the story frequently reappears on the WTRF site and here it is back again as of 3:30 PM today:
Is the posting of this garbage approved by WTRF's management? And how about the station's owner, Nexstar Media Group? Are they okay with this "trending story"?
