Colorado reporter fact-checks Megyn Kelly: No, you can’t print ballots from home

Published

on

A Denver, Colorado news outlet corrected Fox News host Megyn Kelly’s allegations over a Colorado law that she said “opened the door to possible voter fraud.”

Kelly said that the law, signed by Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) last year, “literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to ‘collectors’ in what appears to be an effort to do away with traditional polling places.”

After showing Kelly’s statement, KUSA-TV host Kyle Clark reported on Wednesday night, “We usually reserve our ‘Truth Tests’ for political ads, but that claim is misleading.”

According to KUSA, the law, known as the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act, specifically applies to military and overseas voters, who can received ballots via email and return it with a signed affadavit by regular mail services.

Otherwise, registered voters receive their ballots by regular mail and have the option of dropping them off at a voter service center or casting their vote by mailing their ballots in to elections officials.

Kelly’s statement led to a segment featuring contributor Michelle Malkin and Citizens United President David Bossie, who were promoting a film they argued shows how liberals hijacked the state legislature. Malkin called the overseas vote law “voter fraud Frankenstein.”

Watch Clark’s commentary, as aired on Wednesday, below.

The host played clips of Trump denying any relationship with Parnas.

"Well, I don't know him, I don't know Lev Parnas, other than I guess I had pictures taken -- which I do with thousands of people," Trump argued. "I don't know him at all, don't know what he's about, don't where he comes from. I can tell you this -- I don't know him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him. I don't believe I've ever spoken to him."
