Just how big of a problem is voter fraud?
Just a few weeks after his Election Day victory, then-President-Elect Donald Trump turned a few heads by posting that he won not only the electoral college, but also the popular vote if you “deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”
It seemed like an irrelevant point to make. Not only had he already won, there was no evidence to suggest that there was voter fraud on the scale Trump alleged. In fact, by the end of November, only four cases of voter fraud had been documented in the 2016 election. Of course, that doesn’t mean there were only four cases of voter fraud.
As The Federalist’s John Gibbs puts it, “does the fact that 109 people were cited for jaywalking in Seattle in 2009 mean that only 109 people jaywalked in Seattle that year? Does the fact that 103,733 people were cited for driving without a seat-belt in Tennessee in 2015 mean that only that many people were driving without seatbelt in Tennessee in 2015? Obviously not.”
As we reported earlier this week, it’s been discovered that in California there are 11 counties that have more registered voters than citizens. Ten out of the eleven voted for Hillary Clinton (shocker!).
While liberals love to deny the existence of voter fraud, perhaps they just haven’t been paying attention to the news.
A James Madison University student was sentenced to prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to registering dead voters for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.
Andrew Spieles, 21, was given a 100-day prison sentence in federal court for falsifying 18 Virginia voter registration forms last August. A judge waived any fees associated with the charges due to an inability to pay the fine, and Spieles will not have to serve any probation following his jail-time.
Voter fraud is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but Spieles was able to enter a plea agreement with Assistant United States Attorney Jeb Terrien that limited his sentence to between 100 and 120 days behind bars.
Spieles worked as a Democratic campaign operative during its voter registration drive, and admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individuals from “walk sheets” provided to him by the Virginia Democratic Party. He fabricated a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet, and fabricated the social security numbers, the Justice Department said.
Do you really think that it’s a coincidence that those who benefit most from voter fraud continue to deny its existence? Of course not! The dead have, and always will be, the most reliable demographic the Democratic Party has.
