Dem Claims Election ‘Rigged’

( – In a funny new bout of Democrat infighting featuring election fraud accusations that might as well be true, a US congresswoman from California has accused her opponents in the party’s US Senate primary race of election rigging.

Porter was vying for the seat of late US Senator Dianne Feinstein, who passed away recently at the age of 90.

Rep. Katie Porter voiced her dissatisfaction on X Wednesday, asserting that the primary was manipulated against her favor after she finished in third place.

“Thank you to everyone who supported our campaign and voted to shake up the status quo in Washington. Because of you, we had the establishment running scared — withstanding 3 to 1 in TV spending and an onslaught of billionaires spending millions to rig this election,” Porter wrote in her post.

In expressing gratitude towards her campaign backers, Porter highlighted their support as a clear indicator of the public’s desire for novel leadership.

“I also want to thank every person who supported us over the past six years. It’s clear Californians are hungry for leaders who break the mold, can’t be bought, and push for accountability in government and across our economy. And that’s exactly what we as Americans deserve,” Porter wrote further.

“Special interests like politics as it is today because they control the politicians. As we’ve seen in this campaign, they spend millions to defeat someone who will dilute their influence and disrupt the status quo. But take my word for it: I’ll never stop fighting for you,” she elaborated in her tweets.

However, Porter’s allegations of election tampering were met with skepticism, notably from community notes that argued such claims suggested “illegal manipulation of electoral outcomes,” and that being financially outmatched does not inherently equate to election rigging.

At the time of reporting, with 57 percent of the votes counted in the California Senate race, Porter was positioned in third with 13.9 percent of the votes, as per NBC News.

It was reported that Democratic Representative Adam Schiff led the primary, followed by Steve Garvey, a Republican contender.
