Why has Biden hired 600 lawyers?

During a recent fundraiser, former Vice President Joe Biden announced that his campaign had recruited an army of 600 attorneys to prepare for expected legal battles pursuant to the upcoming election. Biden says he needs all these lawyers to fend off “voter suppression,” which he defines as any opposition by the Trump campaign to Democratic calls for a dramatic expansion of mail-in voting. The president believes that such a precipitous change in our electoral process will create chaos and encourage election fraud. He’s right. “Experts” insist that fraud is rare. In fact, it is quite common, and mail-in voting exacerbates the problem.

The Heritage Foundation maintains an election fraud database that documents 1,285 proven cases of voter fraud, many of which involve mail-in ballots in swing states that will decide the 2020 election. In the all-important state of Florida, the database documents dozens of election fraud convictions, including the theft and illegal filing of votes via absentee ballot. In 2013, the chief of staff to Democratic Rep. Joe Garcia (FL-26) was sentenced to 90 days in prison and 18 months probation for “orchestrating a plot involving the submission of hundreds of fraudulent absentee-ballot requests.”
