Vote fraud in America

One thing our political-media Establishment doesn’t want to acknowledge, is vote fraud. America is crawling with anecdotes of it. Some even made it to the GP archive on the subject. (Mostly posted by V the K; thanks V!)

A recent case was Andrew Spieles, a Democrat activist in Virginia, who was caught registering numerous dead people. Since he was caught, the judge sentenced him to 100-120 days in prison. But most are not caught.

Project Veritas has great coverage of different methods of vote fraud. For example,

And more. Here is a summary of PV’s undercover videos on vote fraud in the last 5 years, and here is their archive of posts on the subject.

Once you’ve accepted the idea that America is largely run by corrupt political-media elites – who can protect their own from investigation, or at least from indictment (*cough* Hillary); arrange for punitive investigations on others; suppress media stories that they don’t like; push nonsense media stories that they do like – even to the point of hysteria; and so on: It’s easier to accept the idea of vote fraud machinery that is hidden from public view (never reported on). Especially in States that don’t clean up their voter rolls and don’t have voter ID laws. Which is, most States.

The good news is that, earlier this year, President Trump formed a Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, to look into this issue.

The bad news is, 29 States are refusing to comply with the Commission’s requests for information. Republican as well as Democrat (though NY Governor Andrew Cuomo – D showed extra hypocrisy).

What are they trying to hide?

As one angry election official put it, “This commission was formed to try to find basis for the lie that President Trump put forward that has no foundation.” Such bravado. As we’ve seen, it’s no lie; it’s a claim with plenty of foundation, even ignoring the potential role of illegal aliens.

Perhaps there are privacy concerns, as the information being requested sounds a bit intimate – names, the last four digits of social security numbers, addresses, birth dates, political affiliation, felony convictions and voting histories – until you realize that the Commission only asked for information that was publicly available under each State’s laws.

If these State election officials have nothing to hide, they should be happy to prove it – by complying with the Commission’s legally-allowed requests. Election officials are supposed to be our servants, not our masters. We The People demand answers.

We could have millions of illegal votes?

V mentioned this as an aside; I think it’s worth a post. According to a new study, millions of noncitizens may be casting illegal votes. The study focuses on data from 2008, but one could extrapolate forward.

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House…

Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every two years questions a sample size of tens of thousands of voters. Some acknowledge they are noncitizens and are thus ineligible to vote.

To be clear: The number of illegal votes could also be a something under 1 million.

[Old Dominion University] professors, who stand by their work in the face of attacks from the left, concluded that in 2008 as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted.

Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the same polling data settled on much higher numbers. He estimated that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were illegally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.

The point is: the number, whatever it is, is much greater than the “zero” claimed by some on the Left. The article goes on to discuss why Agresti’s estimation techniques are more realistic.

Clearly, the science is not settled. These matters need further study. AND, our election offices and practices must always guard against illegal voting.

It’s plausible to suppose that most illegals would vote Democrat. Hopefully, Republicans will be doing something useful on this, over the next 18 months:

Last month, the president signed an executive order setting up a commission to try to find on-the-ground truth in illegal voting. Headed by Vice President Mike Pence, the panel also will look at outdated voter lists across the nation with names of dead people and multiple registrants.

No Such Thing as Vote Fraud

According to the Democrat-Media Complex, vote fraud is a myth and Donald Trump is crazy for suggesting that Hillary’s popular vote margin may be fraudulent.

And yet

US postal service certified returned mail from 9,200 voters in District 15 (Clark County NV). Many of the people who were listed as deceased are still on the active voter rolls today. Many of the returned mail came back with 5 people living in a vacant lot with no mail receptacle. Edward Snowden, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and dozens of movie stars were registered to vote in District 15 according to Mr. Vaughan. Mr. Vaughan tested a sample of 200 people of the 9,200 return mail and found that 185 of those had indeed voted.

A total number of 17,086 votes were cast in District 15 for both Republican and Democrat candidates. 9,200 voters on the voter rolls who, by law, should not be on the voter rolls is a huuge discrepancy. President Donald Trump lost by only 27,000 votes statewide in Nevada. So 9,200 fraudulent voters in one small Assembly district equals 1/3 almost of the total margin. 9,200 votes was the margin by which Question 1 passed.

But also this, (from Jill Stein’s Michigan Recount)

Detroit Precinct #152 had an unbroken seal and everything looked proper. The tag on the box said 306 and the book said 306 and the ticket said 306, so there should be 306 paper ballots on the box, right. Well when they pulled out the ballots the stack seemed short and when they finished separating the two page ballot to count the Presidential page only guess how many ballots were in the box? 304 no, 299 nope, 200 nada, how about 100 wrong again. There were only exactly 50 paper ballots in a locked sealed box that again was supposed to have 306.

Also

San Pedro, CA resident Jerry Mosna got a bit of a surprise on Saturday morning when he discovered 83 actual live 2016 ballots on his doorstep. All 83 of the ballots were addressed to his neighbor but each had a different name. Given that his neighbor is an 89-year old lady, who lives alone in her two bedroom apartment, Mosna was fairly confident that the ballots were not intended for her and reported them to his county registrar.

Of course, these are anecdotal. But still, there seems to be more evidence of large scale voter fraud on behalf of Hillary than there is of Russian hacking with floppy disks on behalf of Trump.

The Voting Dead

A Democrat-run city in a Democrat-run state is crawling with zombie voters.

A comparison of records by David Goldstein, investigative reporter for CBS2/KCAL9, has revealed hundreds of so-called dead voters in Southern California, a vast majority of them in Los Angeles County.

Specifically, 265 in Southern California and a vast majority of them, 215, in Los Angeles County alone.

The numbers come from state records that show votes were cast in that person’s name after they died. In some cases, Goldstein discovered that they voted year after year.

Those 265 may seem like just a drop in the bucket, but those are just the ones they found in the course of a brief investigation. It’s a bit like cockroaches… for every one you see, there’s probably 100 more.

The Obama Regime … which will send the flying monkeys after any state that moves to keep men out of women’s bathrooms (and vice versa) has done jack squat about California’s defiance of Federal Law requiring them to keep their voting rolls accurate and free of dead or otherwise ineligible voters.

One cannot expect the Democrat politicians who benefit from voter fraud to police voter fraud or take action to prevent voter fraud.

Quite the opposite, Democrat-run California just passed a law to make voter fraud even easier.

Because Democrats.

Interesting If True

This was posted in a private Facebook group I happen to belong to.

So this happened today in the great state of Ohio. My significant other is a nurse that works with Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. The 35 patients in her unit have no idea who they are. You should hear some of the stories about the things they think are reality. They are bad. There’s no help. No bringing them back. Their minds are completely gone. It’s very sad but that’s another story. But today at noon, a group of people came in to have them vote in the Ohio primary (since early voting is now). Kim (my significant other) asked them how can they vote when they don’t know who they are and she was told “we help them”. “Help them how?” Was greeted with no response. Of the 35 patients, only one knew who the current president was and the rest ranged from Reagan to FDR as to who they thought the president was. HR came and told her to “shut up about it already. It’s their right”. They don’t have the right to walk outside the facility but they do to vote?

A Curious Thing

Voting Machines have been mysteriously turning Republican votes into Democrat votes. There’s something peculiar about it:

  • It only seems to be happening in Democrat-controlled areas of deep blue states, such as Cook County IL and Baltimore MD.
  • It’s always Republican votes turning Democrat, never the other way around

Ain’t that odd?

Using Transgendereds to Protect the Vote Fraud Franchise

Looking for ways to protect their massive and effective voter fraud operations, Democrats have found another group who supposedly are “oppressed” by voter ID laws.

The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law released a report this week saying about 24,000 transgender voters in 10 states with government-issued photo ID requirements for voting could be prevented from casting ballots in November because they don’t have an updated ID that reflects their current gender.

That represents about 28 percent of the transgender population in Kansas, Texas, Wisconsin, Arkansas, Indiana, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Virginia.

“Transgender people who have transitioned face additional burdens to acquiring or updating identification that would fulfill voter ID requirements because they must comply with the requirements for updating the name and gender on their state-issued or federally-issued IDs and records,” wrote study author Jody L. Herman.

I would think that after spending thousands of personal or taxpayer dollars to get genitally mutilated, updating a free Government ID would be a snap. But no doubt some Obama-appointed radical judge will consider this a valid argument; just as they routinely accept the Democrat argument that their voters are too lazy and stupid to get Government ID’s.

Illinois Democrats Pass Law to Expand Vote Fraud

The Illinois Legislature — more of a Politburo in that one-party Democrat state — passed a law this week aimed at making vote fraud even easier. Some of the pro-fraud attributes in the bill include:

  • Same day voting registration — To ensure that voting officials have absolutely no chance of determining if a voter is eligible before letting him cast a ballot.
  • Expanded early voting — So the Democrat base can vote even earlier and oftener.
  • Making it easy for college students to vote both at home and at their college residence.
  • Abolishing the Photo ID requirement for early voting.

I know I said Illinois is a one-party state, but it’s more like a state in which the Democrat Fraud Machine in a single city is so effective, it effectively denies the rest of the state any political voice at all

Living in Maryland as I do (temporarily, perhaps), I know exactly how that feels.

Not suppressing the vote in Texas

Via HotAir, a look from Bryan Preston at Texas voter ID laws in action:

For weeks leading up to the 2013 off-year elections, prominent Texas Democrats directly blamed the state’s new voter ID law for problems in registration…

Democrats who oppose voter ID have consistently claimed that it suppresses votes. If they are correct, then Texas should have seen turnout drop off in 2013 compared with the closest comparable election…

According to the Texas secretary of state’s office, 10 amendments were up for vote in 2011, the last constitutional amendment election before the voter ID law passed…Overall, an average of about 672,874 Texans voted on these 10 constitutional amendments.

…nine amendments went up for vote in 2013…The average number of votes cast in 2013 was 1,099,670.

So, in terms of raw votes, turnout in 2013 increased by about 63% over turnout in 2011 in comparable elections.

…Democrats allege that voter ID will suppress the vote in predominantly Hispanic regions. Hidalgo County sits on the Texas-Mexico border and is 90% Hispanic. In 2011, an average of just over 4,000 voted in the constitutional amendment election. In 2013, an average of over 16,000 voted.

Of course that doesn’t settle the argument; both from the standpoint that it takes a good deal more facts to prove anything conclusively, and from the standpoint that the Left won’t care about the facts. But, as Preston concludes:

If voter ID was intended to suppress votes, it is failing as spectacularly as HealthCare.gov.

Clinton goofs, endorses voter ID checks

He said:

a great democracy does not make it harder to vote than to buy an assault weapon

Generally, you must show ID to buy an assault weapon. And submit to a background check, perhaps a waiting period, etc.

So, if we, as a great democracy, keep it (say) only one-third as hard to vote as to buy an assault weapon, then we will at least have universal voter ID checks. Right?

Bonus: A Harvard study is said to have concluded that gun bans don’t reduce the murder rate.

Researchers looked at crime data from several European countries and found that countries with HIGHER gun ownership often had LOWER murder rates.

Russia, for example, enforces very strict gun control on its people, but its murder rate remains quite high…

…several European countries with significant gun ownership, like Norway, Finland, Germany and France – had remarkably low murder rates.

I don’t have time here to read the study, so I don’t vouch for the above summary. If you read the study and find it said something different, please inform us in the comments.

UPDATE: Here is the study.

One person, one vote

A democratic republic is not honest or fair unless it upholds the principle of “one person, one vote”. All Americans should want to uphold that principle, strictly.

But not all do. Both historically and today, some may benefit from the principle’s two enemies: discrimination and fraud. How do we best combat both discrimination and fraud, in our voting processes?

The Supreme Court has just struck down part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Superficially it sounds like some people could have just lost their voting rights or something, and Yahoo!’s coverage starts out in a mournful tone. But let’s consider the substance, on both sides.

Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, reauthorized by Congress for an additional 25 years in 2006, gives the federal government the ability to pre-emptively reject changes to election law in states and counties that have a history of discriminating against minority voters. The law covers nine states and portions of seven more, most of them in the South. The formula used to decide which states are subject to this special scrutiny (set out in Section 4 of the law) is based on decades-old voter turnout and registration data, the justices ruled, which is unfair…[because] many of these states now have near-equal voter turnout rates between minorities and whites.

“The coverage formula that Congress reauthorized in 2006 ignores these developments, keeping the focus on decades-old data relevant to decades-old problems,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the opinion. “Our country has changed, and while any racial discrimination in voting is too much, Congress must ensure that the legislation it passes to remedy that problem speaks to current conditions.”

The Justice Department used Section 5 of the law to block voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina last year…

The court has effectively now put the ball back in Congress’ court, writing in its decision that it is up to Congress to write a new formula that is based on current data. States or counties that fit the new formula could still be subject to federal “preclearance” of changes to their elections procedures…

The story there seems to be: In the 60s, they were justly worried about discrimination and passed a law giving the federal government a great deal of power over some States. Today, fifty years later, much (if not most) of the discrimination problem has receded, the States are worried about fraud, and have begun to pass voter ID laws to combat fraud. The Obama administration has used the 1965 law aggressively to block those fraud-fighting efforts. And Chief Justice Roberts, writing for a SCOTUS majority, has just said to knock it off; do a fresh study of the real problem.

For completeness, let’s look at Justice Ginsburg’s objections. The Yahoo! article continues:

In her dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg writes the “sad irony” of Roberts’ decision is that it strikes down the key part of the Voting Rights Act because it has been so successful at preventing racial discrimination. “Throwing out preclearance when it has worked and is continuing to work is like throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet,” she writes. Ginsburg also slams the court’s majority for relying on turnout and registration rates “as if that were the whole story” and ignoring so-called second-generation laws and regulations designed to make it harder for minorities to vote…

But Roberts didn’t throw out preclearance; he only said, re-validate its basis to make sure it’s fair, before you use it again. Ginsburg’s imagery, of throwing out your umbrella in a rainstorm, is vivid but possibly misplaced. She assumes that we live in a racial “rainstorm” whose intensity is virtually unchanged from the 1950s/60s. But if that were so, we would not have an African-American President.

On the above information, I’m with Roberts: while problems of discrimination may remain, and any racial discrimination in voting is too much, Congress should indeed take a fresh look at the real problem. Congress should not make a lazy assumption that this is still the 1950s or 60s, nor that efforts to fight the problem of voter fraud must automatically be illegitimate.

Republicans Caught In Astounding Voter Fraud Scheme

Ooops!  Got that wrong.  My bad.

The son of a prominent Virginia congressman agreed to help an undercover reporter forge documents in what he thought was an illegal voting effort aimed at re-electing the president, a just-published video reveals.

After raising legal and practical concerns, Patrick Moran, son of Virginia Democrat James Moran, encouraged the reporter to create phony utility bills that would allow others to cast multiple votes in the November 6 election.

Supporters of stronger voter ID laws seized on the video as evidence of widespread corruption among liberal get-out-the-vote organizations.

“What he’s doing is soliciting fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent ballots, and that’s a federal crime,” said Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C. “Even attempting to do that is federal crime — you don’t have to go through with it. Attempting it is a crime.”

This tweet from Ben Domenech pretty much puts the cherry on top. And you may watch the glorious video as well.
