REGISTERED TO COMMIT VOTER FRAUD?

Here we have an article from The Washington Times.

Maryland county’s count suggests noncitizens voting across U.S.

The debate over noncitizens voting was a hot topic a few years ago in Frederick County, a prosperous Maryland suburb wedged between Washington’s urban metropolis and the state’s rural western gateway to the rest of America.

Conservative activists went to court to show that noncitizens were registering fraudulently to vote. A court employee met their request by turning over pages of residents’ names disqualified from jury duty because of alien status.

When those lists were compared with voting records for just three years — 2007, 2008 and 2011 — nearly 180 noncitizens were found to have registered to vote. Of those, 63 had voted, some in multiple elections. The 180 registered votes came from 1,400 disqualified noncitizens in those three years, a rate of 12.8 percent.

The issue of noncitizen voters has taken on national importance. President Trump, who said 3 million or so voted illegally in November, plans to name a federal task force to investigate.

Frederick County’s numbers offer a limited snapshot from a handful of jury pools, but they indicate that noncitizens are registered to vote and are casting ballots in states, which administer federal, state and local elections.

“Obviously, there are people on the voting rolls who have no business being on the voter rolls,” said conservative activist Daniel M. Gray, a lawyer who filed the lawsuit. “What needs to be determined is how extensive is this. How many noncitizens weren’t summoned for jury duty and went ahead and voted?” (continued here)

Have you heard of any prosecutions in Maryland for voter fraud? Well, there have supposedly been a few, but not related to this Washington Times story. Generally, what the news media does is pan any possibility that someone might even think of voter fraud.

Here are some examples from this region, Maryland in particular.

The news media’s calmness with respect to voter fraud is strangely odd. Any other issue and they treat it as a crisis. Voter fraud? A strange exception.

In fact, the news media has made one odd exception with their reporting on voter fraud. They are quite willing to report on how Russia supposedly hacked our elections. They have even managed to produce voluminous reports without any evidence, none at all.

Are any politicians trying to do anything about voter fraud? Well, Virginia is my home state, and Delegate Rob Bell is certainly focusing on the issue.

Dear Citizen,

Last week, Governor McAuliffe vetoed my House Bill 2343, which would require state officials to provide local registrars with the list of their voters who are also registered to vote in another state. You can read an article about the veto by clicking here.

This follows McAuliffe’s vetoes of a bill to require photo IDs for absentee ballots and a bill to investigate why some localities have more registered voters than voting-age residents. As of today, McAuliffe has vetoed more bills than any other Virginia Governor.

Think we should do all we can to clean up our voter rolls? Tell Governor McAuliffe by clicking here.

We will be taking up these vetoes and any other amendments when the General Assembly reconvenes in Richmond on April 5. While my bill was supported by every Republican Delegate and State Senator, we will need some additional help to get to the 2/3 we need to override the veto. If you have a Democratic representative (Delegate or State Senator), please encourage him to support the bill.

Sincerely,

Delegate Rob Bell

If you are represented by any Democrat Liberals in the General Assembly, please let them know you want fraud-free elections and you would like to see the Governor’s vetoes overturned.  If you are represented by any Republicans, please thank them.

  1. is it just me or are we currently careening down a narrow mountain switchback at breakneck speed in an old jalopy who’s breaks have failed…
    barreling down helter skelter, totally out of control, as the leadership and powers that be who sit behind the wheel keep telling us to stop all our worrying as we’re just overtly paranoid!?

    1. Feels that way, but it seems to me the brakes are just fine. I suspect the problem is the “driver”.

      We have elected too many who don’t know how to read a map, the Bible. So they have taken us through the gate that is wide and on the way that is broad and leads to destruction.

      All we can do is what those early Christians did. When our leaders ask to affirm the way they want to go and demand we fill their jalopy with gas, we must refuse.

      We need a government. We must respect our leaders and pray for them. Still, our first loyalty is to Jesus.

  2. The WT article is based on allegations in Frederick County, but it turns out to be difficult to find further info. I have looked for the lawyer Daniel M. Gray quoted in the article. It turns out that back in 2014, when the group got the documents the article is based on, they withdrew the case themselves.

    Any idea why they should withdraw a lawsuit about voter fraud, when they claim to have had rock solid proof? What happened in the three years since?

    This simply does not add up. I suspect, that they had name matches between the lists w/o actually checking that the name matches were indeed one and the same person and that the person was indeed a non-citizen and indeed voted.

    1. Have no idea why they withdrew the case.

      It is possible they did as you said and did not confirm the name matches properly. Still, that would be absurdly stupid. When we vote, we have to confirm our name and address. Of course, in Maryland, no one has to provide a photoID. That would be discrimination.
      🙄

      Note that the county could have easily done the same study and reported the results. Can you find any evidence that they did?

      There is apparently nothing to stop noncitizens from voting in Maryland. How many do it? We don’t know.

  3. Oh how I wish I loved in a state where it was even remotely possible to open up an investigation in to voter fraud. Alas I live in the land of many fruits and nut head liberals who would never agree to such a thing.

    It’s so true what you say about the media making EVERYTHING an urgent issue yet being strangely silent on this. It’s not so strange really as we all expect this but I like how you worded it.

      Look at marmoewp’s comment. The guy definitely knows how to use Google. The peculiar thing is how the Democrats and the news media just walked away from the whole thing. All they cared about is the fact the charge was dropped. Whether it was true or not made no difference. Wasn’t even part of the story. Boggles the mind.

      1. It does boggle the mind but it really shouldn’t knowing what we know about Progressive Democrats. The truth does not matter, only that which furthers their cause which the existence of voter fraud most certainly does not.

  4. So Tom your conspiracy theory that the “media” does not report rampant illegal voting is an old “media” story that never went anywhere? Well then it must definitely be time to break out the tinfoil headgear. 😏

    The reasons why it is unlikely that undocumented aliens don’t commit voter fraud in large numbers is pretty much the same reasons why elligble citizens don’t vote but magnified many, many times over. That problem for eligible voters is called “rational apathy”.

    Rational apathy is the concept that a given individual’s vote is not worth to him or her the time it takes to cast that vote, much less the time it would take for that person to become an informed voter. In other words, from a strictly rational standpoint, the voter looks at the impact of his or her one vote on the entire election and then realizes the unlikelihood that his or her one vote will actually (1) be decisive in th election, and (2) that the outcome of that one vote will positively or negatively effect that person’s life in a way that offsets the opportunity cost that that person pays because he or she could have been doing something else with more utility to that person rather than voting. Obviously in this light, the larger the election, the less a given individual’s vote is actually worth. Also, the poorer a person is and the less discretionary time he or she has to spend, the higher the rational apathy. This is the reason why poor people normally vote less while wealthier persons and retirees have high voter turnout.

    Obviously, most of us here vote for moral and patriotic reasons other than just rational utility. However, to think that, mostly poor and lower income, undocumented immigrants are spending their time off to vote illegally in massive numbers, particularly in a national Presidential election where a single vote is worth so little, and where legal citizens don’t even turn out in large numbers, well that stretches even the tin hat protected imagination. (Mexicans may hate Donald Trump, but they don’t trust Democrats either – Barack Obama deported more undocumented aliens than any President in decades, Democrat or Republican).

    Other reasons why undocumented persons are unlikely to vote:

    1. In most states voter fraud is a felony with stiff fines, jail time and almost certain deportation, possibly risking leaving many of their US citizen family members behind or having to take them to a country that is foriegn to them.

    2. Undocumented workers are trying to avoid the spot light. Why would they expose themselves to being caught at a public voting poll trying to vote illegally?

    Doe that mean that illegal voting by undocumented citizens never happens? No I’m sure it happens to some rare extent, but not enough to effect elections, and particularly not enough to effect national elections. Put simply, this issue is just a way to demonize undocumented migrants (especially brown ones) by falsely accusing them of crimes based on nothing more than fake news and conspiracy theories.

    That said, if the President of the United States is willing to peddle such malacious slander based on providing zero evidence, and just to excuse the fact that he lost the popular vote, then there should be a major investigation – let’s start with Trump’s continuous lying. Hold your breath,however, while that or any real investigation of illegal voting accusations happens, and you will likely suffocate. It will have to wait in line behind a long list of Trump’s daily lying tantrums and tweets. (I know you wanted Ted Cruz – the one our morally handicapped President defamed as “lying Ted”, claimed his wife was on the Wall Street take, and whose father Trump implied conspired in the Kennedy assassination with Oswald).

    Tom, I’m surprised that you want to believe this nonsense so badly that you are practically hurting yourself trying to scrounge up and blow out of proportion old, unproven stories and rare instances. Yes, I know the diabolical Democrats are plotting with illegals to steal elections. 🙄 And they have been so successful in their back room plotting that the Republicans now control all three branches of government, fully control most governorships and state houses, and yet those evil genius Democrats fully control very, very few states.

      You are stating as fact something you cannot know to be the case. Yet you accuse me of being ready to break out the tinfoil headgear.

      If we don’t look for voter fraud — if we look away from it — we are guaranteed not to find it.

      Any voting system should take reasonable precautions against voter fraud. What is unreasonable about people proving they have the right to vote before they vote? Inconvenience? Frankly, I wish the people who think that is too inconvenient would practice some rational apathy.
