Sen. Rand Paul railed against voter fraud in the 2020 election during a Senate hearing, saying voter fraud happened and that the election was “in many ways stolen.”
“The fraud happened,” the Kentucky Republican said during a Wednesday Senate hearing on election security. “The election in many ways was stolen, and the only way it’ll be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws.”
“We can’t just say, ‘It didn’t happen,’” Paul said about fraud allegations across the country. “We can’t just say, ‘Oh, 4,000 people voted in Nevada that were noncitizens, and we’re just going to ignore it.’”
President Trump and Republicans nationwide have taken legal action in several states amid accusations of widespread voter fraud, which the president and many of his supporters believe changed the outcome of the race.
