Fifty percent of voters in Tuesday’s presidential election will question the integrity of the election, U.S. Senator Ron Johnson said Friday.
“I’m not saying (the election) is legitimate or not, I’m saying the process has been set up where people won’t view it as legitimate and that’s a real problem,” Johnson told WTMJ’s Steve Scaffidi.
Presidnet Trump alleged voter fraud and his campaign is filing several lawsuits. Johnson says irregularities prompt skepticism.
“I’ve always agreed with (the president’s) concern about the massive increase in mail-in voting,” Johnson explained. “It’s extremely important that every American views all the results as legitimate.”
The Wisconsin Attorney General refuted any questions about the validity of the election. “That’s make believe,” Josh Kaul told TMJ4’s Charles Benson. “We had a smooth and reliable election process here in Wisconsin.”
Johnson also blamed tech companies and social media (i.e. Twitter) for potentially affecting the outcome.
“(Social media companies) think Russia can affect outcomes by using thier platforms but they are denying that anything the companies do can have an affect on outcomes.”
