2020: Voter Fraud Scandals A Top Concern
Election voter fraud is becoming a major concern ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The Heritage Foundation reports 1,177 proven instances of voter fraud. Judicial Watch found that 900,000 illegal aliens voted in the 2018 midterm election.
Moreover, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the group sued several states such as Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and California. Judicial Watch is a conservative government watchdog group that has gained prominence in uncovering corruption through utilizing the Freedom of Information Act to gain access to documents.
In most cases, said Fitton, there were more people were on voter rolls than those who could actually vote. Further, the group found 3.5 million extra names on national voter registration rolls.
“Dirty voting rolls can mean dirty elections” said Fitton.
Unexpectedly, Texas is also a breeding ground for fraud. According to the Real Clear Investigations report, Nueces County Clerk Kara Sands discovered that individual votes were being stolen. Initially, Sands was tipped off by an ex-cop who shared his concerns with mail-in ballots. Sands found piles of mail-in ballots each signed by the same person.
“The harvesters come along at election time and bring food, they have these neighborhoods mapped out and they can go door to door and build relationships. Mostly elderly people are being victimized and they don’t even know it.” said Sands.
In 2018, every house seat in Orange County, CA went to a Democrat. However, Orange County is widely acknowledged as one of California‘s only Republican-held majority regions. An unprecedented 250,000 votes were mailed in that year. For example, in 2016, Former California Governor Jerry Brown legalized ballot harvesting. Basically, Brown allowed mail-in ballots to be submitted by anyone including campaign workers and political party officials.
E Pluribus Unum
Most importantly, this nation was founded on the principle of state sovereignty and individual freedom. It was not about creating a menacing federal government. This is why the electoral college exists.
The voter fraud issue is a hijacking of individual liberties. What is happening is party interests are superseding the rights of the individual. Further, harvesting votes discounts some of the greatest historical achievements our country has ever seen such as women’s suffrage and the passing of the 15th amendment.
