The Democrats always howl with protest any time the matter of fraud in elections comes up. When their candidate has lost by a slim enough margin that the election is open to recount manipulation, they loudly proclaim that the election was "stolen" from their candidate. But otherwise, they insist there is no such thing as voter fraud. This is the mantra of the left and of their primary media shills, such as the New York Times
In hearing after hearing in Raleigh, I have had to endure the indignant objections and lies of the left who bitterly opposed North Carolina's Voter ID bill. Now the Voter ID law is not a silver bullet -- it won't stop all forms and strategies of voter and election fraud, but it's a great step forward in returning integrity to our elections process.
And we always hear how illegal immigrants are not voting. Really? Well, there hasn't been extensive proof of this -- again according to the Democrat Party and the left. Well, might that be because of the difficulty in tracking it all down, the resistance of the state boards of elections to open their records to scrutiny, the intransigence of those same boards to admit holes and flaws in their procedures, and the efforts made on the part of the defrauders to hide their crimes?
The following video highlights an investigation by a principled news team in Florida which sampled voter registrations against jury summons records to find 100 fraudulent illegal immigrant voters. No such fraud, huh? It's only a Republican right-wing myth to disenfranchise poor voters, huh? Give me a break already. Enough with the lies.
The problem that I have with the Florida Board of Elections' response to the exposé is that these two offices will begin to get copies of jury summons to find illegal immigrants who self-identify themselves on those summons. First, if the illegal immigrant illegally serves as a trial jurist and does not admit he/she is illegal, then the illegal immigrant still goes undetected and continues to vote illegally. Second, there are much, much easier ways to verify whether the name and identification on a voter registration form is a U.S. citizen. Using jury summons is a convoluted backdoor and haphazard means to prevent this form of fraud.
It was a great idea for the news team to prove conclusively that Florida (and all other states) have a real problem. But it shows how small minded the bureaucrats actually are that they cannot think of any other way to approach this crime. What a shame! What a travesty! What a crime!
A local Florida station invented an unprecedented way to check for voter fraud: jury excusal forms. NBC2 compiled a list of jury excusals based on not being a citizen of the United States and compared it to a list of registered voters in two counties. They discovered almost 100 illegally registered voters, many of whom had voted multiple times. "I vote every year," one woman told NBC2, despite the fact that she is not a US citizen. The woman had told the court that she couldn't serve on a jury because she wasn't a US citizen, but she doesn't seem to have a problem voting like one.
Based on the NBC2 investigation, local election offices say they'll now request a copy of every jury excusal form where residents say they can't serve because they're not a citizen.
