CNN's Jake Tapper revealed his own mother is a mail-in voter in Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania, where votes are still being counted tonight, and rebuked those who would suggest her vote should not to count.
"My mom lives in Philadelphia," said Tapper. "She is in her late 70s. She does not want to get coronavirus and she voted by mail. Her ballot is among them. She's an American citizen. She gets to have it counted."
Tapper also skewered President Trump's allies who are standing by him even as he alleged fraud without evidence.
"We are seeing some of the President's most obedient servants... go on TV and say things that are not true, say things that there's no evidence for, talk about electoral fraud," said Tapper, referring by name to Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz, and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.
"This is not accurate," he continued. "This is not what is actually going on. "The American people are having their votes counted."
Tapper then went on to reference August 1974, during the Watergate scandal, when Republican congressional leaders Sens. Barry Goldwater, Hugh Scott and House Minority Leader John Rhodes, went to the White House and informed President Richard Nixon the Republican Party would no longer support him.
"Nixon resigned the next day," said Tapper. "Those three Republican leaders, two of them were from Arizona and one of them was from Pennsylvania, two of the four states that we're waiting to hear from today."
"Let the American people have their say," concluded Tapper.
