Nearly 2,100 mail-in ballots were sent to voters in Los Angeles without the option to vote for the next president of the United States, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office declared them “faulty ballots,” the report noted.

“While this has impacted a very small number of Los Angeles County voters … we nevertheless apologize to those affected by the mistake,” said Michael Sanchez, a spokesman for the county clerk’s office, according to the LA Times.

Moreover, Sanchez instructs voters to “discard” the incorrect ballots.

The State of California has chosen to send mail-in ballots to the State’s registered voters in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

President Donald Trump has criticized the move and says what comes with it is the potential for massive fraud. In fact, in California, the RNC, Trump Campaign, and California Republican Party have sued to stop ballot harvesting, which allows campaign workers to collect mail-in ballots.

Philly Mayor says only police officers should be allowed to own guns like ‘in Canada’

Two Philadelphia police officers were shot near a Fourth of July event on Monday evening, leaving the mayor supporting demolishing the Second Amendment. In a grandstanding speech just outside the hospital where the two police officers were being treated for gunshot injuries, Mayor Jim Kenney spoke about his concern…for himself.

“I’m concerned every single day” said Kenney. “I’ll be happy when I’m not the mayor” he added so that he does not have to deal with gun violence. He also told the group of reporters that only police officers should be allowed to own guns.

In addition to the Second Amendment, Kenney took the opportunity to knock the Supreme Court of the United States as well. “It was a chilled back day, beautiful weather. But we live in America where we have the Second Amendment and we have the Supreme Court of the United States telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want,” he said.

Rather, the mayor suggests we take after our northern neighbors in Canada. “I was in Canada two weeks ago and never thought about a gun,” he said. “The only people I knew who had guns in Canada were police officers.”

“That’s the way it should be here,” Kenney stated, so that he can enjoy events. “I don’t enjoy the Fourth of July…I didn’t enjoy the Democratic National Convention. I didn’t enjoy the NFL draft. I’m waiting for something bad to happen all the time.”

“Until Americans decide that they want to give up the guns and give up the opportunity to get guns, we’re going to have this problem,” he told reporters. He then suggested he would unilaterally strip citizens of the right to own firearms — if he had the authority to do so.

“If I had the ability to take care of guns, I would,” he said. “But the legislature won’t let us. Congress won’t let us. The governor does the best he can [and] the attorney general does the best he can, but this is a gun country.”

“It’s crazy,” Kenney added. “We’re the most armed country in world history and we’re one of the least safest (sic).”
