The Washington, D.C., based anti-voter fraud organization Honest Election Project will spend $250,000 on a national advertisement calling out Democrats for trying to exploit the election system during the Wuhan coronavirus crisis.

The ad, called "hard to cheat," points out how Democrats try to change or undermine the rules when winning isn't possible in the current system.


"Politicians and activists are exploiting this crisis to push a political agenda that would permanently change our democracy, including risky new voting schemes like a national all-mail election. That plan invites chaos and election fraud and is the wrong direction for the nation," Honest Election Project Executive Director Jason Snead said in a statement about the ad. "Voting by mail is less secure than voting in person, so it's common sense that we need to strengthen election integrity measures that protect every vote. States need to take sensible, temporary steps, like expanding absentee voting, to ensure vulnerable people can safely participate and the integrity of our elections are maintained."

In recent weeks, Democrats in states across the country and in Washington, D.C., have used the current pandemic as a way to justify changes to election laws.

In March, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to pack crucial economic relief legislation with same-day voter registration and required early voting for every state across the country. Senate Democrats, like former presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar, have been pushing for the November 2020 election to be conducted completely by mail, which of course, leads to fraud.
