Former CA Sen. Boxer: My 2004 Electoral Challenge is ‘No Comparison’ to Hawley’s Challenge to Biden’s Electoral Win
Translation: IT IS OKAY WHEN DEMOCRATS DO IT.
Former California Sen. Barbara Boxer told CNN that her challenging President George Bush’s 2004 electoral win is nothing at all like Sen. Josh Hawley’s challenging Joe Biden’s electoral win.
Translation: IT IS OKAY WHEN I DO IT.
It’s also another example that both sides only care when their side does it. I don’t get why Democrats and Republicans cannot be consistent.
Republicans at the time deemed Boxer’s efforts as “frivolous” and described Democrats as “sore losers.”
Fmr. Sen. Barbara Boxer, who objected to the 2004 Ohio electoral results, says there's "no comparison" to Sen. Hawley’s plan to challenge Biden’s electoral win: “John Kerry had conceded the race. We have a President here who’s orchestrating kind of an overthrow of the election.” pic.twitter.com/yACbbYQvUM

But it’s different because John Kerry conceded!!
No, darling. It is not. You objected. Here is the 2005 article on CNN.
Weird. Boxer and Rep. Stephanie Tubbs (D-OH) objected to Bush’s 2004 electoral win in Ohio because of…”widespread voter problems.”
Isn’t that what President Donald Trump and his allies claim happened in November?
From CNN in 2005:
The objecting Democrats, most of whom are House members, said they wanted to draw attention to the need for aggressive election reform in the wake of what they said were widespread voter problems.
In a letter to congressional leaders Wednesday, members of the group said they would take the action because a new report by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee found “numerous, serious election irregularities,” particularly in Ohio, that led to “a significant disenfranchisement of voters.”
“How can we possibly tell millions of Americans who registered to vote, who came to the polls in record numbers, particularly our young people … to simply get over it and move on?” Tubbs Jones told reporters.
Oh, Boxer and Nancy Pelosi “insisted they were questioning the process, not the outcome.”
Except it was Ohio’s 20 electoral votes that “pushed Bush beyond the 270 he needed for victory.”DONATE
