J. Christian Adams, the president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) stated that there were 15 million mail ballots unaccounted for in the 2020 presidential election.

According to the original Breitbart report, which was based on the official statement Mr. Adams gave directly to Breitbart’s political editor Matt Boyle, here’s the story.
“This is the worst way to run an election, what they did in 2020,” J. Christian Adams, president of PILF, told host Boyle in an interview: “The Election Assistance Commission, which is a federal agency … puts out a report every two years. … One of the things it has … is the number of mail ballots that were sent out, the number of mail ballots that came back, and the number of mail ballots that were straight-up rejected, meaning the election officials said there was a defect.”
“This is not data that we are speculating about,” he added. “This is federal data, and that’s where we get the 15 million number. Fifteen million ballots were sent in the mail last year that never ever came back and were counted” (emphasis added).
Adams said that “some of them, we don’t know where they are, they’re just gone. That tells you the system broke down. That tells you that probably ballots came back that were counted for the wrong people. The whole thing is a mess. It can’t be repeated again. And that’s the problem with mail balloting. We’re giving the idiots at the post office control over our government.”
The actual number of mail ballots unaccounted for in the 2020 election is higher than 15 million, Adams noted, because not all states responded to the Election Assistance Commission.
“A lot of states didn’t give the data [to the Election Assistance Commission]. … They’re not required to. … This is all voluntary, so a lot of states never reported the number of screwups they made, how many ballots disappeared, how many ballots were rejected that came back in the mail. So the number is per se higher than 15 million,” Adams added.
“There are three charts here [in your August 17 report]. There are ‘unknown’ ballots. Then there are ‘undeliverable’ ballots. Then there’s ‘rejected’ ballots,” Boyle said.
“Can you explain what those three categories are?” Boyle asked.
“Each one of them has their own level of significance and victims,” Adams answered.
“Let’s do the ‘unknowns’,” he continued: “The ‘unknown’ ballots, we used to call them the ‘disappeared,’ but Media Matters, all the lefties, went crazy and said, ‘They’re not disappeared; they’re probably just in landfills.’ Okay, we’ll take that.”
“The ‘unknowns’ are ballots that went out and just vanished. They went into the ether. Now a lot of them are probably laying on apartment floors, such as in Nevada, where we saw pictures of dozens of ballots just laying on the floor of apartment complexes in the lobby. They eventually got thrown away because the people don’t live there anymore. Others probably didn’t get voted. There’s going to be some that the people got them and just decided not to vote. We’ll grant that,” he said.
“But,” he continued, “a lot of them probably ended up in the sewer, in the garbage, just laying around for people to pick up. That’s the ‘unknown’ category.”
Then, Adams described the undeliverable category of ballots.
The [‘undeliverable’] bouncebacks are more troubling because it means the voter rolls are a mess,” Adams said: “The [undeliverable] bouncebacks are ballots that were mailed out to somebody who’s supposed to be an active voter, and they bounced back to the election office that the voter doesn’t live there anymore, which means the voter rolls are a mess, and it also means you probably are sending them, some get through, they never bounce back, and they go to the wrong people.”
“The last category, Matt, is the ‘rejected,’ and this is a troubling one because when you go to vote in person … and you screw up, they can give you a new ballot right there,” Adams said, continuing, “When you go to vote by mail, you don’t. And that’s what the rejected ballots are. Somebody made a mistake on the ballot, and they got it back, and it got rejected. And that means that voter was disenfranchised. And I can tell you that I can guarantee there was a larger rejection rate among the elderly, which are Trump voters than there were for other ballots. So that’s the ‘rejected’ ballot.”
“Could this have affected the outcome of the presidential election?” Boyle asked.
“There is no question it did affect the presidential race. The only question is how much,” Adams responded:
“We know that tens of thousands of ballots were rejected. They were rejected by people who made some kind of small mistake,” he added.
“In a place like Wisconsin, there were more of these ballots that screwed up than the margin of error, by like four-fold.”
