Is the state of Virginia a hotbed of illegal voting?
Before you answer, read this excerpt from Stephen Dinan’s article for the Washington Times. See if it gives you some insight:
When Maureen Erickson registered to vote in Prince William County, she listed her home address as a street in Guatemala, in what should have been a very strong indication that she wasn’t a regular Virginia resident.
Yet she remained on the voting rolls for years, and even cast ballots in 14 different elections,
Ms. Erickson was one of more than 5,500 noncitizens who were registered to vote in Virginia this decade, and were only bumped from the rolls after they admitted to being ineligible. Some 1,852 of them even managed to cast ballots that were likely illegal, though undetected, the PILF, a conservative voter integrity group, said in its report.
Just as troubling, the PILF said, was Virginia’s efforts to try to hide the information from the public — a problem foundation President J. Christian Adams said began at the very top, with Gov. Terry McAuliffe.
“At the instruction of Governor McAuliffe’s political appointees, local election officials spent countless resources to prevent this information from spilling into the open,” Mr. Adams said in a statement releasing the report. “From NoVa to Norfolk and all urban and rural points in between, alien voters are casting ballots with practically no legal consequences in response.”
If that’s not troubling enough, watch this video of Tucker Carlson’s interview with J. Christian Adams, founder of the Election Law Center – especially the part (starting at about 1:38) where he talks about Democrat activist/Governor Terry McAuliffe:
Adams: “He vetoed several bills this year that would have fixed it. He vetoed citizenship verification, he doesn’t even want election officials to have access to the people who get out of jury duty by saying Im’ not an American citizen”. He vetoed a bill that would have used that tool to keep the voter rolls clean.
Carlson: So they’re actively trying to allow illegals to vote”
Adams: “Yeah, they would have turned this information over to us without having to go to federal court three times…they would have given us this information…but they’re hiding the ball”.
That, I hope, troubles you even more.
And let’s remember: leaving clearly illegal voters on the rolls is just one way that voter fraud can be accomplished. There are countless other ways as well.
And if we don’t do a thing about it; if, for example, we don’t insist on serious voter ID laws – as virtually every other free country in the world does – we make it easy for voter fraud to take place.
One other thing: do we know whether one or another of the two political parties is the beneficiary of it being easy to commit voter fraud?
Determining the answer to that question is not hard at all. Just think about which party demands stringent Voter ID, and which party wants no part of it. There’s your answer.
