VERNON HILLS, Ill.—Patti Anne says she has been protesting the steal of this election since the beginning.
"It is absolutely ridiculous the amount of fraud that has occurred across the country," she said at a Stop the Steal rally in Vernon Hills, Illinois on Nov. 21, 2020.
"Absolutely there has been voter fraud, we've known that from the start, we believe that because of the mail-in ballots were sent out to people without them even requesting that, so we've known that, we know there's been ballot harvesting," she said, and she's read reports of another anomalies and allegations of fraud.
"I'm so glad they're taking this seriously and that they're investigating this," she said of court cases currently ongoing in key states. "They should."
"We want fair elections in this country. If we're going to have a free republic, a democratic republic in this country, we need to know our elections are fair and honest and the correct person is in office," she said. She believes President Donald Trump won, and as fraud is investigated and the election plays out by the law, he will be in office for the next four years.
"I believe in the man, I believe in the policies, I believe everything he's done for this country has been for and of the people. He is for the people. It's not about him, it's about the people, and everything he's done has been to protect us," she said.
She says she's been encouraging more people to speak out, "to not be afraid."
"The left has done everything to silence our vote, to silence our voice, and we are not putting up with it anymore. We are loud and we are proud and we are vocal, we're Americans," she said. "We're Americans first and foremost.
