“We don’t really have the entities set up here in America to look into these kinds of problems in a serious way,” Domenech told 布莱恩·基尔梅德 上 “狐狸 & 友人” 星期一. “I think that’s unfortunate, I think it needs to be addressed.”
“I think in any situation where a significant number of Americans don’t have faith in the electoral process, that’s a bad thing,” 他加了. “We need to address it.”
“A fair and credible audit—conducted expeditiously and completed well before January 20—would dramatically improve Americans’ faith in our electoral process and would significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next President,” 该声明部分解读. “We owe that to the People. We are acting not to thwart the democratic process, but rather to protect it.”
“I completely understand the people that are making that argument,” Domenech said, noting the need to investigate election integrity concerns without putting the entire Electoral College system at risk.
Domenech stressed the importance of having a system in place to raise potential questions about election results.
“We do not have an approach that will allow us to investigate, to find the facts about this, and to be able to bring them to the American people,” Domenech said. “As it currently stands, we have not addressed these types of things in the past.
“If we’re going to have mail-in balloting, we’re going to have this approach that was used in this election going forward, people need to be able to have trust in it [和] have faith in it,” 他继续. “That’s not something I think we are going to get out of this process.”
Domenech also called for media outlets to be more responsible when covering election integrity concerns.
“A responsible media would be saying ‘OK, how do we address it, how do we resolve these questions?’ as opposed to just playing politics and essentially being a partisan actor,” 他说.
Domenech argued that, for several years now, many corporate media entities “have essentially looked away from anything that they dislike, anything that they don’t want to cover.”
“They’ve pretended like things have been the way that they wanted them to be, as opposed to the way things actually are,” Domenech said. “That’s something that I think is going to be a continuing problem.”
