‘No Evidence of Voter Fraud,’ says Southern Baptist ERLC

The Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission disputes allegations by President Trump and the Republican Party that widespread voter fraud has occurred.

“Currently, there has been no evidence that voter fraud has been occurring,” the ERLC wrote on its website.

Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the ERLC, has been a long time critic of the president and his supporters. He once called the president an “arrogant huckster.”

And he once slandered Trump’s Christian supporters by noting that Trump represented a wing of evangelicalism led by a television evangelist who had a fling in a seedy motel with a woman who was not his wife.

“I would say that Ted Cruz is leading in the ‘Jerry Falwell’ wing, Marco Rubio is leading the ‘Billy Graham’ wing and Trump is leading the ‘Jimmy Swaggart’ wing,” Moore said.

He later apologized for his heinous and uncharitable remarks.

It’s not clear how the ERLC can claim there has been no evidence of voter fraud.

“There are numerous reasons why widespread election fraud is difficult, if not impossible, to pull off at the presidential level,” the ERLC said in a statement.

“Political parties appoint partisan poll watchers to monitor polling places and election offices,” they wrote. “For instance, an election office in the Democratic stronghold of Detroit had 134 Republicans, 134 Independents, and 134 Democrats as poll watchers. Extensive research has shown that voter fraud is exceeding rare, that voter impersonation is virtually nonexistent, and that many instances of alleged fraud are merely mistakes by voters or election administrators.”
