Fox Business host Lou Dobbs compared early voting to Stalinism in a Friday evening segment — and claimed that it is “a recipe for immense fraud.”
“The idea of early voting that has overtaken much of the country extends Election Day across weeks and weeks and we’re left with this situation where Election Day is no longer Election Day,” Dobbs said. “It sounds like, and looks like, and feels like, a recipe for immense fraud.”
“What’s the rationale for this?” the host later said of the voting advent that has allowed many more people to vote in a country where Election Day is not a legally mandated holiday.
Dobbs later referenced Soviet leader Joseph Stalin in an attempt to explain why early voting leads to voter fraud.
“What is it Stalin said?” the host mused. “You know, ‘You can vote, let me count.'”
