Amid accusations of massive battleground state election fraud meant to swing the Presidential race for Democrat Joe Biden, outraged voters in the 7th District of Virginia are sounding the alarm after incumbent Democrat Abigail Spanberger was propelled to victory by the discovery of nearly 15,000 early absentee votes stored on a thumb drive in the Richmond suburb of Henrico County.
In a chain of events similar to those that have played out around the country, with roughly 85% of votes reported as being tallied, Republican challenger Nick Freitas, as well as President Donald Trump, led their respective races in the 7th District by a wide margin, only to see those leads evaporate the next day following the ballots’ apparent discovery.
Of the 14,616 votes stored on the drive, more than 70% of them broke for Spanberger, and the Democrat incumbent declared victory. She now holds a nearly 5,000 vote lead with an additional 10,000 mail-ballots remaining to be tallied. As has been seen in Pennsylvania, Virginia was still accepting mail-in votes three days post-election.
