Elections Are Vulnerable to Criminal Fraud

Whatever your opinion of the man, Donald Trump is right about our elections being vulnerable to criminal fraud. “One of the bright spots of the Trump campaign has been his willingness to talk about vulnerabilities in the election system.”


A big vulnerability is dirty voter rolls filled with millions of ineligible voters – moved, deceased, duplicates, and aliens – who can, and do, vote. This criminal activity is aided by the DOJ’s decision not to enforce provisions of the National Voter Registration Act that require maintaining clean voter rolls, and by attacks from the institutional Left on state voter ID and proof-of-citizenship laws.


“None of this is an accident.  George Soros money and his spawn are doing all they can to break down election integrity barriers in court and in legislatures.”


Ignoring these vulnerabilities in the election system, as voter fraud deniers and those hostile to election integrity do, only encourages more criminal activity.

Debate: Voting, Immigration, and the Rule of Law

People who say there’s no evidence of voter fraud don’t ever look.


Video of last week’s Voter ID and Immigration Law debate hosted by the Federalist Society at Willamette University College of Law between election lawyer J. Christian Adams and civil rights professor Gilbert Carrasco. A number of questions focused on non-citizen voting and voter fraud in general:


”We always hear there’s no evidence of voter fraud… Just because there’s not a federal prosecution doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It means you have lax federal prosecutors who aren’t bringing the cases they ought to be bringing…


“The facts are that aliens are voting… It is utterly, fantastically absurd to claim there is no alien voting… We hear so much about how there’s no evidence of voter fraud. The people who say that don’t ever look.”

Power of the Project Veritas tapes: Lawlessness exposed

J. Christian Adams on Fox this weekend talks about the power of James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action videos and what they reveal:


“This is a DOJ and an FBI that is doling out justice based on your politics…

“The power of this video is this: Most Americans don’t have to put up with this garbage… Because of this tape people see [the lawlessness] first-hand, they get to see this corrosive thing happening in America.”


Indiana State Police superintendent confirms voter registration fraud

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter confirmed Friday that ISP detectives have found evidence of voter registration fraud in their investigation of Indiana Voter Registration Project, dismissing denials by the group’s Progressive parent organization and Indiana’s Democratic Party.

In an interview with RTV6’s Rafael Sanchez, Carter confirms what Gov. Pence said during a campaign event in Nevada on Thursday… More than two dozen troopers are part of the investigation of possible registration fraud in 56 counties.


The investigation centers on the Indiana Voter Registration Project, a subsidiary of Patriot Majority USA, a liberal leaning national political action committee.


Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson announced earlier this week that potentially “thousands” of registrations may be involved in the case.


The Indiana Democratic Party has criticized the investigation, calling it a partisan attempt at voter suppression.

Charges have not yet been filed, but a statement from prosecutors is expected next week.

Queens elections board won’t stop sending dead man’s family absentee ballots

Why is it so hard to get elections officials to remove dead people from voter rolls?

Queens resident Michelle Dimino wants to know:

Dimino’s father, Anthony Baldomir, died on Oct. 4, 2012. But according to the board’s records, he could vote in the Nov. 8 presidential election…


“In 2013, 2014, 2015 and again this year, I received absentee ballots for my father. I could have fraudulently voted with those ballots, but I shredded them instead,” an exasperated Dimino told The Post.

Dimino says she called the Board of Elections after her father’s death to ask that he be purged from the rolls, but was told that would require her to present a death certificate in person, not by mail.


A mailed death certificate should be sufficient to remove a voter from the rolls, and the BOE now says it is, but there are easier methods to ensure dead people don’t remain on voter rolls and receive mail ballots year after year. Comparing death records to voter lists is a simple list maintenance tool that all registrars can and should be using. But apparently Queens isn’t.

BOE spokeswoman Valerie Vazquez confirmed that Baldomir, who hadn’t voted since 2011, was still on its “permanent absentee-ballot list.” She said the agency never received notification of his passing.

O’Keefe and Project Veritas Action file FEC complaint, citing admissions captured in undercover videos

A “criminal conspiracy” to circumvent federal election law: that’s what Democrat operative Scott Foval appears to describe on undercover video captured by James O’Keefe’s team of investigative journalists.


Those hidden-camera admissions provide evidence for the FEC complaint filed by O’Keefe and Project Veritas Action Fund that calls for investigation of Hillary for America, the Democratic National Committee, their “willing accomplices” Democracy Partners and Scott Foval/The Foval Group, and others implicated in illegal coordination by the videos.

Journalists with Project Veritas Action Fund (“PVA”) have uncovered a criminal conspiracy where, in the words of Scott Foval, “The way that works is: The [HFA] campaign pays DNC, DNC pays Democracy Partners, Democracy Partners pays The Foval Group, The Foval Group goes and executes… on the ground.”  This has been done in a manner to evade federal election law and violating coordinated expenditure rules.

The complaint provides pages and pages of excerpts from the video transcripts in which Foval talks about instances where “the supposedly independent speech and actions of third-party groups were directed, controlled, or puppeteered by HFA or the DNC.”

Podesta Wikileaks: Voter ID Doesn’t Stop Alien Voting

Give the Devil his due:


Wikileaks emails show Clinton campaign chair John Podesta has figured out that, because of federally-mandated vulnerabilities in our election system, non-citizen foreigners can get registered to vote and get a voter ID at the same time:

John Podesta: I think Teddy’s idea scratches the itch, is pretty safe and uncomplicated.On the picture ID, the one thing I have thought of in that space is that if you show up on Election Day with a drivers license with a picture, attest that you are a citizen, you have a right to vote in Federal elections.

Under the National Voter Registration Act, aka Motor Voter, anyone can register to vote while they get a driver’s license, a universally-accepted photo voter ID.

Getting registered to vote is as easy as marking “YES” to the question “Are you a citizen of the United States?”  As Podesta notes, when you attest you are a citizen, you get registered. It’s automatic. It’s mandated under federal law. The registrant then signs the form, stating under “penalty of perjury” that the answers are correct. It’s an honor system — but only four states engage in citizenship verification.


And three of those four states are currently entangled in litigation with leftist groups trying to end that verification: Kansas, Alabama, and Georgia. These leftist groups have allies in the Justice Department, which has also fought citizenship verification measures ferociously.


Now we may know why. Alien registrants lie in enormous numbers, and are now on American voter rolls. Naturally, Democrats and the media do all they can to minimize the scope of the problem, because the former benefit from it.


Don’t states check if the answer to the citizen question is truthful? Don’t they make sure that only citizens are registering when they get their driver’s license/photo ID? No and no. It isn’t happening. That’s what Podesta means when he writes: “when you attest that you are a citizen” you have a right to vote.

FEC Complaint Filed Against Clinton Campaign Following O’Keefe Videos

More fallout from James O’Keefe’s latest undercover videos that expose Democrat operatives and organizations working to elect Hillary Clinton plotting everything from staged violence by paid protesters at Trump rallies to outright voter fraud – and also possibly illegally coordinating with the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary for America campaign.

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), an Indiana-based group that litigates to protect election integrity, submitted the complaint Tuesday to the Office of the General Counsel at the FEC claiming that Hillary Clinton’s campaign committee and other left-wing groups may have violated campaign finance laws.

According to PILF, “voter registration drives and other GOTV activity were coordinated with DNC and HFA by express communication through agents of Democracy Partners and The Foval Group. These communications resulted in coordination of voter registration activity in violation of 11 C.F.R. 114.4(c)(2) and (d)(2)-(4) by all parties involved.”


Groups and individuals named in the complaint include Hillary for America and campaign treasurer Jose H. Villarreal, the Democratic National Committee, Democracy Partners and Strategist Bob Creamer, Americans United for Change and National Field Director Scott Foval, and Voces de la Frontera Action. Creamer and Foval are already out of their jobs due to the videos.
