A few weeks ago, ACRU named MI Governor Whitmer “Crisis Tyrant of the Week.” We could add “Vote Fraud Promoter of the Year” to her credentials. Whitmer is sending absentee ballot request forms to both legal MI voters AND 30,000 ineligible voters still on voting rolls in Detroit alone. The state has records of who moved and who died. It would be an easy place to start protecting real voters casting legal votes. Whitmer, so far, is a “no” on integrity measures.
This story is the week’s best example of why universal mailed ballots are a welcome mat for fraud. After being caught changing ballot requests from Democrat to Republican, a West Virginia mailman claimed he did it as a “joke.” Charged with felony vote fraud, we presume Mailman Cooper will find his fines and/or jail time as unfunny as his crime.
ACRU Senior Fellow Hans von Spakovksy with Zack Smith writing for the Heritage Foundation notes the U.S. Supreme Court determined Americans do not have a right to vote by absentee ballot through the mail. But never mind all that, says Texas Judge Fred Biery. Judge Biery is widely known for his bias against religious freedom. Now he can also be famous for elevating his own biases against decisions made by our nation’s highest court.
A group of House Members has introduced the Counting All Military Votes Act to ensure all military overseas ballots are expedited to ensure timely receipt by the military voter and delivery to home voting locations. The bill currently has 25 original co-sponsors, including many retired military members. So far, no House Democrats have signed on. You may view the list of cosponsors here, and if your Member of Congress is not on it, you should pick up your phone and encourage them to pick up their pen.
Democrats are determined to use one of these gargantuan and utterly unconstitutional bailout bills to mandate nationwide vote by mail. And they want the ballots to be mailed out automatically to everyone whose name is listed in the voter registry, whether they request one or not and whether they are dead or alive. This, of course, will be big boon to the Chicago machine, which routinely has dead people voting in city elections.
A new report has revealed how vulnerable voting by mail can be. It should alarm all who are pushing for all-mail elections: Based on federal data from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, millions of mail ballots were never counted as completed votes.
5/17: One America News Network reports on a loophole in California that allows people voting-by-mail to possibly vote twice in the state's election.
Vote fraud endangers our democratic system. It's easy to commit and hard to detect, and no one knows for sure how often it occurs. But once it’s committed it can’t be undone.
