An election denier is a person who denies the results of a legitimate election. Prominent election denier Hakeem Jeffries was elected Democrat Leader in the U.S. House of Representatives for the 118th Congress. According to The Washington Post election deniers are a threat to democracy.
Prominent election deniers
- Al Gore. After the 2000 presidential election contest against George W. Bush, Gore refused to accept the free and fair election results and would not concede defeat. He instead tied up the election process through litigation in the courts for months. Gore consistently lost his bid to overturn the election results in the lower courts and kept fighting in the Florida Supreme Court. He would not concede until mid-December of that year, a month and a half after Election Day. As late as August of 2017, Gore again suggested he actually won the 2000 election.
- Jimmy Carter. In 2014, former President Jimmy Carter insisted that George W. Bush did not win the election over Gore in 2000. “I don’t think that George W. Bush won the election in 2000 against Al Gore because I think that he probably lost Florida, and also nationwide,” he said in an interview. Carter believed Donald Trump lost saying, “I think a full investigation would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016.”
- Joe Biden. In 2013 Biden claimed Al Gore actually won the election. “This man was elected president of the United States of America,” a pool report at the time stated. Biden cast his doubts on the 2016 presidential election, agreeing with a woman at a campaign rally who said Trump was an “illegitimate president in my mind.” “I absolutely agree,” Biden replied.
- Bill Clinton. In 2001 Clinton said, “The only way they could win the election was to stop the voting in Florida.”
- Terry McAuliffe. The former governor of Virginia in 2004 claimed Democrats “won that election.”
- Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “The Supreme Court elected the president,” Schultz argued, stating that Florida was a blue state in 2000. “Al Gore won the state of Florida in 2000, although not the presidency.”
- Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton began her career in election denialism in 2004, arguing that “there are many legitimate questions about [the election’s] accuracy.” Hillary Clinton spent years claiming the 2016 presidential election was stolen from her by the Russians and anybody else she could point a finger at. “I was the candidate that they basically stole an election from,” she said.
- Howard Dean. Dean told Rolling Stone magazine that he was “not confident that the election in Ohio was fairly decided” and ‘couldn’t rule out’ that the election was stolen.
- Sheila Jackson Lee. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee said, “We cannot declare that the election of November 2nd, 2004 was free and clear and transparent and real for all of those who attempted to vote.”
- John Kerry. New York University professor and author Mark Crispin Miller claimed in 2005 that John Kerry told him “he now thinks the election was stolen.”
- Karine Jean-Pierre. The Biden regime's chief propagandist, in a tweet from December 2016, claimed Hillary Clinton’s emails were “stolen,” as was the presidential election. “Stolen emails, stolen drone, stolen election … welcome to the world of #unpresidented Trump,” she wrote.
- John Lewis and Barbara Lee. The late congressman John Lewis said he did not believe President Trump is a “legitimate president,” with Representative Barbara Lee applauding the comment and saying he was “right on target.”
- Jerry Nadler. “He was legally elected,” Nadler said in 2017. “But the Russians weighing in on the election, the Russian attempt to hack the election and, frankly, the FBI’s weighing in on the election make his election illegitimate.”
- Hakeem Jeffries. Hakeem Jeffries is a notorious 2016 presidential election denier.
