Tomi Lahren's Latest 'Voter Fraud' Claim Gets Instantly Debunked By L.A. County Clerk

Tomi Lahren's Latest 'Voter Fraud' Claim Gets Instantly Debunked By L.A. County Clerk

Right-wing firebrand Tomi Lahren was criticized after she made a baseless claim about voter fraud that was swiftly debunked by Los Angeles County officials.

Writing on Twitter, Lahren, who subscribes to former President Donald Trump's falsehoods that the 2020 general election was stolen, suggested that California is allowing voter fraud to take place with no oversight from state authorities.

Lahren said that she had received her "California voting code and mail-in ballot information" despite being registered to vote in Tennessee the last couple of years.

However, Lahren's claim was immediately countered by the Los Angeles Country Registrar-Recorder and County Clerk, which noted that her registration is "INACTIVE due to returned mail and would only be reactivated if you responded or voted signing the oath attesting to your qualifications and residence."

The agency requested that she send a direct message to confirm her data so it could process a cancelation.

Lahren was soon mocked online for lying about something that could be so easily fact-checked.

Lahren has long parroted former President Trump's lies about the integrity of the 2020 general election despite all evidence to the contrary and has repeatedly backed the insurrectionists who attacked the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021 in a failed bid to overturn the electoral victory of Joe Biden.

Claims that the election was stolen essentially ignore the findings of Trump's own intelligence agencies, which have long determined the election was both free and fair.

In fact, a statement from the Trump administration's own Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), part of a joint statement from the Election Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Executive Committees, affirmed the agencies found "no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised."
