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.”

Here is Joy Reid mocking Trump’s ‘smoking hot beauty tips’ that likely pushed him over the edge into rage-tweeting

Published

Since Donald Trump launched his attack on MSNBC's Joy Reid long before her "AM Joy" show was broadcast, internet sleuths wondered what set him off and led him to pretend he didn't know who she as he smeared her reputation.

On Saturday morning, Trump wrote, “Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the 'it' factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News!”
