“I see dead people…” Voting.
One local news did some digging, and found something… disturbing.
Local officials in Colorado acknowledged “very serious” voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the named of recently-deceased residents.
A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. “Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not theirs to cast,” El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a “very serious” pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead.
It’s not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations.
“We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.”
…It’s not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations. The Milwaukee (Wis.) Police Department reported in 2008 that there was an “illegal organized attempt to influence the outcome of [the 2004] election in the state of Wisconsin.” There were more votes counted than the number of voters who officially cast ballots, according to the report — about 5,000 more, in a presidential battleground decided by 12,000 votes.
How exactly does this happen, CBS4 tells us:
Remember when Hillary and Co. gave us horror stories about how Russians were going to corrupt the vote? What if that’s just a smokescreen to put the numbers in doubt… at the Republicans’ expense?
Voters have a right to know that they have not been disenfranchised by such ballot-stuffing. These degrade the value, or negate the value of their own single vote.
