The big question isn’t ‘did it happen?’ The big question is HOW MUCH of it was there?
In one instance, 1046 non-citizens have cast ballots in 10 years.
We’ve got stories in two different Swing states that give some scope of how big the voter integrity problems we’re facing have become in this election.
First, we’ve got serious issues in Philadelphia.
At least 86 non-citizens have been registered voters in Philadelphia since 2013, and almost half — 40 — even voted in at least one recent election, according to a legal group that sued to get voter registration records.
Joseph Vanderhulst, an attorney with the Public Interest Legal Foundation, noted Philadelphia knows about those 86 illegal voters only because officials received specific requests — in almost every case from the voters themselves — to remove the names from the rolls. He said there is no way to know how many non-citizens might be registered to vote in Philadelphia, let alone in the rest of politically crucial Pennsylvania.
“This is just the tip of the iceberg. Who knows how many are on and don’t ask to be taken off?”
“This is just the tip of the iceberg,” he said. “Who knows how many are on and don’t ask to be taken off?”
Research by the law firm also indicated that Philadelphia makes no effort to proactively remove non-citizens or incarcerated felons, who also are ineligible to vote under Pennsylvania law. Philadelphia becomes the latest jurisdiction that the Public Interest Legal Foundation has revealed to have irregularities in the voter rolls. The group recently found 1,046 non-citizens who had been registered to vote in eight Virginia counties and that nearly 200 cast ballots between 2005 and 2015.
Meanwhile in Ohio:
A pro-Hillary group that used one of her top lawyers to sue for voter suppression is now being investigated for voter fraud.
..Marc Elias a partner at the Washington, D.C., law firm Perkins Coie, and general counsel for Clinton’s presidential campaign, filed a lawsuit against Ohio for voter suppression. It was one of three states he filed in and whose funding comes from George Soros.
[Notice, the Progressive tactic of using the courts to tilt a playing field in their own favor.]
One group was caught red-handed registering dead people to vote. Not only did they have their name and had a signature, they also had correct driver’s license numbers and correct Social Security numbers. That sound nonexistent to you? The county’s elections chief, Adam Booth said it was obvious almost immediately that the group was falsifying voter registrations. Besides the dead, they also registered people to wrong addresses with incorrect birth dates and many of the signatures were written by the same person.
“The forms were riddled with errors and all tied to this group. You can tell the same person filled out some of the same forms and forged signatures. There are wrong dates of births and wrong addresses on others. It became a pattern.”
John Husted, Ohio Secretary of State sent out advisories to all Ohio counties:
“Anytime we receive reports that invalid and fraudulent voter registrations are being submitted we take it seriously and will work to ensure those individuals or groups responsible are held accountable.”
Evidently, the Clinton campaign found out Ohio was investigating the group and Elias dropped them from the lawsuit and replaced it with the Ohio State Democratic Party.
Christian Adams, an attorney who leads the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a group that has stepped up to fight Soros, explained why doing this is so important in Ohio:
“Voter registration fraud has infected the last two presidential elections in Ohio—all of it to help Obama. It’s exactly why the state legislature enacted election integrity reforms and seemingly why Democrats are fighting so hard against them.”
