Report: Kentucky Governor Claims He Lost Re-Election Due To Voter Fraud

Darren.Woon

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin claimed to be the victim of democratic voter fraud after losing re-election to AG Andy Beshear.

Outgoing Republican Gov. Matt Bevin claimed, without evidence, that he lost re-election because the Democratic Party “harvested votes in urban communities” on Wednesday morning, according to WFPL News

Bevin lost to Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear last month by about 5,000 votes.

During an interview on 55KRC in Cincinnati, Bevin said: “The left, those who think of a different ideological bent, they are getting so good at harvesting votes in the urban communities. They were able to go into urban communities where people are densely populated on college campuses and public housing projects.”

Vote harvesting, the type of voter fraud Bevin alleged occurred, refers to collecting absentee or mail-in ballots in order to sway an election. Vote harvesting took place during the 2018 race for North Carolina’s 9th Congressional district, which Bevin referenced.

“Conservatives are going to have to find some counterpoint,” Bevin said. “The harvesting of votes in urban cores in particular that is done by the left overwhelmed even that. And that’s the difference, that’s the tipping point.”

Bevin challenged the results of the election last month, but conceded after a recanvass of the vote total produced a change of only one vote. 

Beshear will be sworn in as Kentucky’s 64rd governor on December 10.

Bevin lost Louisville and Lexington by 2 to 1 margins. The Republican in Louisiana lost New Orleans by 9 to 1. Maybe urbanites just don't like the idealogy and policies Trump like politicians like Bevin push. The related article says it even better, Bevin would have won if people had not voted for his opponent. Duh. Like Trump his ego can't accept defeat. In his last few days in office he has been taking it out on Louisville, Lexington, those urban residents, the new governor and anyone else he can think of. Crybaby comes to mind... His Lieutenant Governor who he dumped and who did not vote for him said it best. "How you treat people matters".

I partially disagree with Mylulu. Bevin did lose because he's a complete and total jackass, but being a Republican wasn't the cause; he would also be an ass if he was a Democrat. Cannot WAIT until he's no longer governor - just wish he would also become a resident of some other state!

Basically Governor Belvin needs to get his ass out of office and why he's doing it he needs to take Donald Trump with it it's really sad that we don't help people like we should in the United States but we will in the send Ukraine four hundred million dollars that's a bunch of bulshit in a way I think Belding and Donald Trump are alike I will assure you that he will not win re-election he's going to lose in a landslide

The reason why he lost is calling teachers and others names, and not helping when we were flooded out of our house. Getting any help or fema was ridiculous govenor would not say that houses being destroyed by water were not ellagble for any funding so we can get back to our lives. Called Andy Breshear office he found funds to help get us some help with paying hotel bills, we are working on the house now but our so called governor was no help at all.

So basically he's mad & thinks it's unfair that he lost an election he failed to get enough votes to win? He thought he was supposed to win no matter what? I swear, reality is so freaking nuts lately, it would make more sense if I had fallen down a rabbit hole into the Twilight Zone's nightmares. Straight madness.

I am a conservative who voted for a Democratic candidate for the very first time since I started voting in 1988. I know dozens of people who did the same. Bevin alienated all of state government workers, including teachers and the people who love them. It’s not hard to be elected in Kentucky if you’re a Republucan. As a matter of fact, every other office that night went to Republicans. Andy Beshear was the only Democrat elected. Bevin can’t grasp that his actions, comments, and demeanor lost him an election he should have won. I would have voted for him again, had he not been so callous and demeaning towards me and my colleagues. Literally thousands of us would have. He lost the election fairly and, deep down, surely knows he can’t blame the left. Every sour grapes comment from here on only solidifies that Kentucky made the right choice.

Bevin is a crybaby! He lost because the people saw through his shenanigans. He lost because thinking people voted AGAINST him.
