House GOP Leader Candelora Statement on Allegations of Absentee Ballot Fraud in Bridgeport

Posted on September 18, 2023

HARTFORD—House Republican Leader Vincent Candelora on Monday released the following statement in response to allegations of absentee ballot fraud in Bridgeport:

“Over the last few years, Connecticut residents or Republican lawmakers who expressed concern or posed simple questions about the integrity of our state’s absentee balloting system have been immediately discredited as a matter of policy by Democrats who control all levers of state government. Now, what’s alleged to have happened in Bridgeport ahead of the mayoral primary can’t be ignored—it’s right in the Democrat party’s lap, and it poses a direct threat to the public’s fragile confidence in our state’s voting process. Bridgeport residents, and voters statewide, deserve a swift, transparent response to this crisis with strong backing from Democrats at the capitol who promote themselves as defenders of democracy—including taking action in the upcoming special session to suspend use of absentee ballot drop boxes until the investigation is complete.”
