J. Christian Adams on WMAL: Virginia’s governor, elections commissioner are hiding information about alien voting

Everybody ought to be interested in enforcing the law. 

 

Records show that aliens have illegally registered to vote (and voted) in Virginia. They were only caught by accident.

 

Yet Virginia’s Democrat governor, Terry McAuliffe, and the state’s Commissioner of Elections Edgardo Cortes, a McAuliffe appointee, aren’t interested in increasing transparency and accountability.

 

J. Christian Adams joined WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall with Brian Wilson to explain:

 

”We are trying to get to the bottom of how many aliens are on the rolls. Unfortunately, the Governor of Virginia and his state election director Cortes have been stonewalling and hiding the ball and forcing us to go and beat them in federal court, which we have done. They’re hiding information about alien voting. The public records show that Virginia counties have had to remove thousands of aliens from the rolls that they caught by accident. This isn’t even a program to find them. Not only have they caught them, they’ve been voting. We published the names of these people.”

 

“People say there’s no voter fraud. Read our report. We show you the names. . . . Some people mark on their forms no, I am not a citizen, and they’re still getting registered to vote in Virginia.”

 

“The Governor and election director have exactly the wrong attitude about this. People don’t want aliens on the rolls, they want government to do a good job and get them off. McAuliffe and Cortes are doing exactly the opposite. They’re hiding information, they’re giving instructions to local registrars to not reveal information. . . . This is exactly the wrong attitude. We know there’s aliens on the rolls. Everybody ought to be interested in enforcing the law.”

 

“The Governor of Virginia – in an election year – is doing everything he can to preserve vulnerabilities in the Virginia voting system.”
