Conservative actor James Woods responded to a ruling against drop boxes and ballot harvesting in Wisconsin to say what most rational-minded people would say, that these tactics are “scams that lead to crooked elections.”
Taking to Twitter, Woods was responding to a tweet from Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, who tweeted: “In a historic vindication for Trump, Wisconsin Supreme Court details how use of drop boxes and ballot harvesting in 2020 presidential elections was illegal.”
Exploiting the pandemic, officials in a number of states circumvented state legislatures to alter the voting process. In addition to flooding the playing field with millions of unsolicited mail-in ballots, the use of drop boxes and other means of ballot harvesting were allowed.
Fitton linked to the actual decision, which said in part, “The illegality of these drop boxes weakens the people’s faith that the election produced an outcome reflective of their will. The Wisconsin voters, and all lawful voters, are injured when the institution charged with administering Wisconsin elections does not follow the law, leaving the results in question.”
“This isn’t just a vindication for any particular individual, but rather a vindication for every registered citizen voter in America,” Woods commented. “Drop boxes and ballot harvesting are scams that lead to crooked elections. Any rational person understands this.”

Absentee ballot drop boxes were used in hundreds of Wisconsin communities during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
“In a 4-3 decision Friday, the state’s high court upheld a lower court’s January ruling that absentee ballots must be delivered by mail or in-person to a local clerk’s office or designated alternate site. However, the court did not rule on whether voters can have someone else handle their ballot on its way to a mailbox,” the outlet reported.
Justice Rebecca Bradley authored the majority opinion and said the Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) did not have the authority to authorize drop boxes.
“Only the legislature may permit absentee voting via ballot drop boxes,” Bradley wrote. “WEC cannot. Ballot drop boxes appear nowhere in the detailed statutory system for absentee voting.”
Nonetheless, Big Tech is still quick to censor any talk about election irregularities or questioning of the outcome. But it seems clear that much like they have manipulated immigration laws to achieve an end, so too have Democrats finagled election laws for the same purpose.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
I would say even democrats understand this, but it they are more than willing to turn a blind because they are the ones taking advantage of this and petulently getting their way

As a former resident of California, and no longer an eligible voter there, I still received three ballots in the mail for this last election and I haven’t lived there for nearly two years. They are mailing out numerous ballots to anyone who has ever been a voter in that state.

They knew all they had to do was get the votes counted. Once counted they knew it would take years to uncover.
Not the America I grew up in.

I’m a New Yorker and I don’t trust these ballot boxes or whatever. Just do it in person. If you can stand outside for hours waiting for new Jordan’s then you can do the same to vote.

We know. They know. We know they know. They know we know.

Why does such a ruling come down only 20 months after an election and not months in advance?

Drop boxes are illegal in Wisconsin but no one will do anything about it and they count the votes anyway. It’s sad we are being held hostage by Milwaukee and Madison.
