From NBC’s Columbus, Ohio affiliate, we have this:
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced an investigation has uncovered that hundreds of non-US citizens are registered to vote in the state, and dozens of them voted illegally.
According to a release from Husted, 385 people who are not citizens of the United States are registered to vote in Ohio. Out of those, 82 voted in at least one election in the last year.
Husted’s office says the 82 non-citizens who are registered to vote and cast ballots will be immediately referred to law enforcement for further investigation and possible prosecution.
“In light of the national discussion about illegal voting it is important to inform our discussions with facts. The fact is voter fraud happens, it is rare and when it happens, we hold people accountable,” Secretary Husted said.
There are dozens of ways to commit voter fraud. Non-citizens registering and voting is just one of them.
And I have no doubt at all that, even here, the 385 found is a tiny fraction of the number there actually are.
Anyone who thinks there is no such thing as voter fraud is in desperate need of a common sense transplant.
