Why Do Democrats Fear Trump’s Probe of Voter Fraud?

Why are voter fraud-denying Democrats so opposed to the Trump administration taking a look at the problem of voter fraud if they’re so certain an investigation will turn up nothing and prove the Left right, Deroy Murdock wonders.

In their hearts, the Left knows Trump is right, at least on the existence of voter fraud. And that’s what terrifies them. . . .

 

It would help if Democrats, Left-wing activists, and the hyenas in America’s newsrooms explained just how “widespread” voter fraud must become before they consider it an injustice. Every ballot cast by a cadaver or an illegal alien negates a ballot completed by a legitimate voter. How many such genuine votes is it OK for fraud to obviate? Is it 100? How about 1,000? Maybe 10,000 — or ten times that figure?

“The Obama Administration had the tools to fight voter fraud but let them gather dust,” says J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation and a former Justice Department Voting Section attorney. But with the new administration signaling a return to enforcing federal laws, including those that require clean voter rolls and bar non-citizens from registering and voting, Adams “recommends a machete that would help Trump chop quickly to the center of much of this fraud.”

The Homeland Security Department’s Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database lists all non-citizens in America. These include green card holders, foreign tourists, exchange students, and those on work visas as well as illegals who have broken the law or otherwise surfaced on Uncle Sam’s radar. Adams tells me: “This is the ultimate alien database.”

 

Comparing SAVE’s names with registered and actual voters should demonstrate, rather swiftly, the extent of non-citizen involvement in America’s election system. It also would identify violators, who should be punished.

 

“If that federal database were used to scrub the state databases,” Adams predicts, “all sorts of illegals would pop out. That’s what the Left fears the most. It would reveal rats everywhere.”
