Woman Who Spent Four Years Kvetching About 'Stolen' 2016 Election Now Says Voter Fraud Is a Myth

If you’ve followed my political musings you know that the foremost political tenet to which I subscribe is this: The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds. And in the storied annals of Democrat Party hypocrisy, no one comes even close to holding a candle to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

While examples of Hillary’s hypocrisy are limitless, it’s been a while since one this outstanding has come along. Moreover, it only took Hillary one tweet to pull it off. First, a bit of background.

As reported by The Nevada Independent, a Clark County man prominently featured by local and national Republicans as having evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 election pleaded guilty on Tuesday to voting more than once, after using his deceased wife’s ballot to vote a second time.

Donald Kirk Hartle was publicly cited by the Nevada Republican Party last November as evidence of voting irregularities that affected the results of the 2020 election, noted The Independent. Hartle claimed he learned someone else had cast a ballot in 2020 for his wife Rosemarie, in 2017.

Eleven months later, he was formally accused by the state attorney general’s office of casting his wife’s ballot. On Tuesday afternoon, Hartle pleaded guilty to the charge at the Clark County District Court.

“I accept full responsibility for my actions and regret them,” Hartle said to the judge via teleconference.

So here’s the thing. While this is a small example of voter fraud that had no impact on the 2020 presidential election, it was, in fact, voter fraud — a felony to which the defendant pled guilty. A year of probation, a $2,000 fine, and that’ll be that. Normally I wouldn’t even cover a similar story.

Except for Hillary.

Obviously having read or seen the news, Hillary fired up her Twitter machine and declared, to the world:

“Voter fraud is such a myth…”

Yep, declared the woman who still whines about the “Russia Russia Russia!” “Collusion! Collusion!” And the “stolen” 2016 presidential election, In fact, Hillary opined, “voter fraud is such a myth that its most outspoken critics have to commit fraud themselves to find an example of it.”

Where to begin? Let’s do “Voter fraud is a myth,” first.

In the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, Hillary’s list of excuses for losing in 2016 began to grow. Even left-leaning Axios in September 2017 compiled a list of 16 excuses offered by Hillary.

  • Russia and Collusion
  • The Democratic National Committee
  • Sexism and Misogyny
  • Immediate Democratic Predecessor
  • Bernie Sanders
  • Wikileaks
  • Debate Questions
  • Political Journalists
  • Campaign Financing
  • Barack Obama
  • Her Traditional Campaign
  • TV Coverage of the Campaign
  • Low-Information Voters
  • Women Under Pressure from Men
  • James Comey
  • Herself (Try to control your shock and amazement.)

While not all of the above excuses, in Hillary’s eyes, necessarily contributed to voter fraud — Russia and collusion have topped her list from the beginning. And, laughably, her complete lack of self-awareness in the claim “Its most outspoken critics have to commit fraud themselves to find an example of it” is mindblowing on its face. Hypocrisy doesn’t even begin to describe it.

As we reported in early November, after Special Counsel John Durham indicted Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann for making a false statement to the FBI, Igor Danchenko, a Russian analyst who was a primary source for the Steele dossier allegations against Donald Trump was arrested on charges that he repeatedly lied to the FBI about where and how he got his information.

Far be it from me to declare that Hillary was up to her eyeballs in this thing from the beginning, but read between as many lines as you so choose here.

As Washington Free Beacon Investigative Reporter Chuck Ross observed:

“So it turns out that Hillary-linked operatives had way more connections to the Russian government than Trump did.”

Nahhh. Who knew?

Incidentally, as reported by my RedState colleague Sister Toldjah in October, Hillary is still ranting about the Jan. 6 “visit” to the Capitol and “undermining American Democracy.”

Some things never change.
