But…but…but…we’ve been assured by Nancy Pelosi and Jake Tapper that voter fraud with mail-in ballots is a myth. – They wouldn’t lie to us, would they?
Why yes, yes they would.
About 1/5th of all ballots cast in a Paterson, New Jersey special election for city council have been thrown out by a judge as being fraudulent. Mail-in ballots were stolen from mailboxes by Democrat political operatives, filled out with forged signatures and mailed in as part of a scheme led by four men, Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-Elect Alex Mendez, Councilman Shahin Khalique, and Abu Razyen.
This kind of voter fraud is a virtually 100% Democrat phenomenon, perpetrated all across the country, mainly in low-income and heavily-minority communities. From a piece at The Federalist:
Khalique and Mendez both won their races by incredibly close margins. Mendez ousted incumbent William McKoy with a mere 245-vote lead. Khalique’s race was decided by a difference of only eight votes, though a recount placed him exactly equal with his challenger.
Jackson, Mendez, and Khalique have all been charged with the following: fraud in casting mail-in vote in the third degree, unauthorized possession of ballots in the third degree, tampering with public records in the third degree, and falsifying or tampering with records in the fourth degree. Mendez also faces charges of second-degree election fraud and third-degree false registration or transfer. Rayzen is charged with fraud in casting mail-in vote and unauthorized possession of ballots, both in the third degree.
The frustration with fraud is leading some to call for the total invalidation of the election. A local NAACP leader, Rev. Kenneth Clayton, argues the city should have an entirely new election due to the rampant alleged fraud.
“These kinds of acts make people not want to vote anymore. They feel disenfranchised, disconnected that their votes don’t count, and that is not fair to people,” Clayton said. He is filing a formal complaint to New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, who ordered the election to be exclusively mail-in.
Benjie Wimberly, deputy speaker of the New Jersey Assembly, likewise criticized the governor for the policy. He too fears voter disenfranchisement, and believes the state should do more to allow in-person voting to prevent these kinds of issues.
Note that the people who are doing the complaining about how easy it is to commit rampant fraud in a mail-in election are also all Democrats, who understand what the deal is here.
This kind of voter fraud has long in fact been one of the most common kinds practiced by Democrats. It has been in practice for decades involving absentee ballots, focused in areas where Democrat officials control local governments. If you control the local government, you have access to the list of local citizens who request absentee ballots. From that point, it is a simple thing to find out what day the ballots are being delivered and have operatives follow mail trucks through the relevant neighborhoods and remove the ballots from mailboxes. I have actually watched such operations in action in South Texas.
But doing this with absentee ballots is admittedly more difficult, precisely because those ballots must be requested by the voter in advance, as President Donald Trump notes here:
Mail-in ballots do not have that extra layer of security – Democrat operatives could just follow mail trucks around on the right day and loot every mailbox in neighborhoods where residents can’t afford security cameras. In a 100% mail-in election like Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are pushing this year, millions of Americans would end up being completely disenfranchised.
Over the past 20 years, Democrat governors and party-controlled legislatures in a growing number of states have ordered that all voting be conducted by mail. If you don’t think fraud just like this is widespread in elections in those states, you are hopelessly naive.
We have to understand that Democrats literally believe they are entitled to power because they are better people than you are. Armed with that conceit, they absolutely believe that any means necessary to obtain and maintain political power are absolutely justified.
Everyone needs to communicate with their U.S. senators to ensure they kill any proposal from the House – where Pelosi rules with a decrepit fist – that would mandate a national mail-in election. There is no question at all the Democrat Party plans to use COVID-19 as a justification to steal this election. The future of the country is really at stake.
