MURDOCK: Democrats’ Fuzzy Math Ignores Concrete Proof of Vote Fraud

MURDOCK: Replace Obamacare with National Market for Health Insurance

Deroy Murdock

This fuzzy math sums up Democrats’ orthodoxy on vote fraud: As the bullet-proof evidence of vote fraud adds up, they still claim that, “There’s nothing to see here.” Not even these hard numbers, based on verified vote-fraud cases, move their acceptance of this reality into the realm of positive integers.

This pathological denial is even more intense, now that President Donald J. Trump has taken vote fraud seriously enough to appoint a bipartisan panel to get to the bottom of it.

While the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is chaired by Vice President Mike Pence and co-chaired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (whom I have known since college, thanks to the Washington Crossing Foundation’s scholarship program for civic-minded students), its members include two Democratic secretaries of state — Maine’s Matthew Dunlap and New Hampshire’s Bill Gardner — and Alabama’s Alan Lamar King, a Democratic judge. Never mind, leading Leftists insist. The issue is bogus, and the commission is evil.

  • According to Senator Bernie Sanders (Socialist – Vermont), “The sole purpose of this commission is to propagate a myth and to give encouragement to Republican governors and state legislators to increase voter suppression.”
  • The Brennan Center for Justice’s Michael Waldman believes that President Trump “set up a probe of an imaginary threat.”
  • Chris Carson, chief of the League of Women Voters, predicts that the Pence/Kobach commission will “undermine our elections by spreading falsehoods.”
  • “The truth remains that it is more likely for someone to be struck by lightning than for someone to have committed voter fraud,” U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (D – Arizona) said in May. “Voter fraud is a non-issue in our country.”

These and other Leftists ignore concrete proof that vote fraud exists:

  • In May 2016, CBS2 Los Angeles identified 265 dead voters in southern California. Many cast ballots “year after year.”
  • The Heritage Foundation’s non-exhaustive survey confirms, since 2000, at least 742 criminal vote-fraud convictions.
  • North Carolina announced in April 2014 that 13,416 dead voters were registered, and 81 of them recently had voted. Among 35,750 North Carolinians also registered in other states, 765 voted in November 2012, both inside and outside the Tarheel State.
  • South Carolina’s attorney general concluded in January 2012 that 953 people “were deceased at the time of their participation in recent elections.”
  • The Public Interest Legal Foundation recently discovered that Virginia removed 5,556 non-citizens from its voter rolls between 2011 and last May. Among these non-Americans, 1,852 had cast a total of 7,474 illegal ballots across multiple elections.

Craftier liberals have inched away from the baseless “Vote fraud = Loch Ness Monster” argument. Now, some claim, vote fraud is not “widespread.” As MSNBC host Katy Tur recently soothed her viewers: “Nobody has found any widespread instances of voter fraud.” Well, Katy, how widespread must vote fraud be before Democrats and their defenders agree that, at least, it should be investigated?

Governor Terry McAuliffe (D – Virginia), a long-time Clinton confidante, vetoed a bill in February that would have required probes of elections in which the number of ballots cast exceeded the number of voters eligible to cast them. How could any honest person oppose such a measure?

During the 2000 Bush v. Gore disaster, Democrats shouted, “Count every vote!” In their more admirable moments, Democrats were among those who demanded, “One man. One vote.” Today, in order to preserve the dodgy electoral system that seems to benefit them when fishy things happen, their battle cries have devolved into “Count every vote, but don’t worry if some of them are negated by fake ones” and “One man. One vote. Usually.”

This is pathetic. If Democrats will tolerate non-widespread vote fraud, how many phony ballots are they willing to see neutralize genuine ones? 265? 765? 7,474? And whose legitimate ballots should be vaporized so that, in essence, fraudulent ballots can be cast and counted in peace?

Senator Sanders, let’s start with yours.

    How dare they suppress the dead and illegal vote. If it were not for the dead and illegal vote the democrats would not win any election.

    • Nancy

      That’s why we need VOTER ID!!

      • AKLady

        Every state issues a voter identification care when you register.
        You are also assigned a polling place. When you register to vote, you are required to provide proof of U.S. citizenship and residency in the state.

        If you attempt to vote somewhere else, you are given a absentee ballot. That vote will only be counted when your identification is verified.

        • Nancy

          I’m sorry to disagree with you. Investigations have already found dead people who voted and people going to different districts and voting again. Did you see that black girl from Ohio, on TV, bragging how she voted eleven times and her daughter seven times? Then bragging she received free phones. Well, she is in jail now. And here in PA, they’ve caught over 200 illegal votes. I know one has to provide proof of US citizenship, but voters used imitation papers and how did they get the SSN’s from dead people? There is plenty of voter fraud and I’m glad it’s being investigated. Not every State has voter ID, North Carolina is one State that voted for no voter ID. Voter ID’s should be the LAW!

      Zombies voters!!!! Dumb Donkeys !!!!! Always cheating!!!!

  • help_us_survive_this

    Sure it is easy to say no vote fraud exists when your candidate either wins or gets the most popular vote regardless of how many illegal aliens your party has helped to register. Makes sense to argue the point, NOT, It is past time to bring to justice these cheaters. Especially when a certain candidate we all know thought the election was fixed and was totally shocked when the loss occurred. We the People, inquiring minds, want to know why no charges have been filed and why a major investigation into this had not occurred and taken to conclusion with the guilty in chains or behind bars Any one of us violates even a little law we pay fines and do jail time. We are lead to believe that is the lae. Huh, I guess there are certain people above the law? If there is then the system needs revamped and the legal minds need to conform to the populace. Sorry but not even Judges are above the law. Make is so Scotty. We the People in order to form a ……… . Get R done.

    • Ron Dasta

      ILLEGAL REGESTRATION of non citizens is way more relevant ! The fraudulent regestration that leads to illegal voting is way more common in MANY states ! Both dead people and over voting in precincts is also a problem ! But illegal registration causes the balk of voting fraud !!!

      Agree! In my mind, it all refers back to the fact that the Liberal Party, and you and I know who that is, who lost the last election fair and square, inspite of all the now being confirmed illegals who voted for H. Clinton and who were being paid to do so and told to do so as well by one George Hungarian Soros, members of the Clinton Cartel or Foundation, members of the Liberal Media and finally many Hollyweird so-called celebrities. The latter group are all a bunch of hypocrits who ended up NOT doing what they said they would do if President Trump won the election. YES, YOU ARE 100% RIGHT!

          It is called treason.

  • badass

    they should check out the California’s voters records. it’ll be a guarantee surprise.

  • misterguru

    No voter fraud in districts where the number of actual votes exceeds the number of registered voters. No nothing to see here.

  • misterguru

    Why is it that whenever there is a discovered voter fraud case it is always a Democrat vote. Illegal Aliens, Convicted Felon, Dead person, Multiple Votes from the same person with a slight name change, and brain dead people. Oh wait, if we exclude brain dead people, the Democrats would get no votes at all.

    • AKLady

      Only in your imagination.

    We The People are tired of Democrats and some repubs, so do Not vote for another democrap in office again be it local and/or national!

    I live and work in Las Vegas where I saw with my own eyes ILLEGAL ALIENS BY THE THOUSANDS , SEIU & CULLINARY UNION WORKERS get their
    box lunch, PREMARKED ballot & free bus ride to go vote on their lunch break at the casinos on election day.
    These unions are NATION WIDE and give HEAVILY to the LIBERAL CANDIDATES and CAUSES. So should I
    think that this is only a Las Vegas problem or is this just multiplied Xs

    Those Libturds will reject anything that they didn’t propose, especially anything from the Trump Administration and the Republicans. These idiots are anti-American and anti-Christian, plus they don’t care about the American people. AMERICA, REMEMBER WHEN THE NEXT ELECTIONS COME AROUND! LETS GET TRUE AMERICANS AND SEND THOSE TURKEYS HOME FOR GOOD! GOD BLESS AMERICA AND THE SAME GOES FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AS HE ENDEAVORS TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!

      Name calling is nursery school behavior.

      • Dondh

        That’s because were’re dealing with Libtard Demorats with Nursery school mentality! Get a life! It seems to me that you don’t have a problem calling President Trump, members of his family and several other Republicans degrading names! Also, you, especially the libtard Media put out fake or false stories without even investigating the truth of their fake stories. Obama and the Clinton’s have been and still are the biggest liars in American politics! But you don’t care what they say and neither does the Libtard Media!! Every time a Republican or most all commentators on Fox News, asked a liberal Democrat guest, including Juan Williams, a Fox News Commentator is asked a question about something Obama, H Clinton and her thousands of emails, or any Democrat who they have on, they never answer the question and immediately change the subject asking something about any number of the Trump Administration or Republican Congressman. So you talk about nursery school behavior, take a look at your own party!!

          You are the one engaging in name calling.

  • GA-LAW-75

    Each one of these fraudulent votes negates a legitimate vote, and in essence creates a “two for one” situation for the candidate who received the illegal vote.

    Of course, depending upon the number of illegal votes cast, this creates a significant difference in the outcome of elections, including local, state and national elections.

    Very serious problem as to trust and confidence in a system expected to eliminate this type of fraud perpetuated upon the very basis of our electoral process.

    Particularity within states packed with illegal immigrants, and no reliable means of determining if the voter is indeed an American Citizen.

    Stop this illegal foolishness, and require voter ID verifying the voter is indeed an American Citizen. Certainly that is a basic fundamental of insuring that OUR Citizens only preserve OUR REPUBLIC.

    Trump and his followers lie. There is no evidence of voter fraud. Trump lies every day, why would I believe him about voter fraud. There is voter suppression, even the courts have declared it. there are few court cases of voter fraud. Your examples have no court case providing concrete proof of what you claim.

  • AKLady

    Voter fraud is of such a low level that it cannot effect the outcome of any election. On the other hand, the so-called Conservative movement wants to institute barriers to voting. They will continue to do everything within their power to keep minority voters away from the polls. If possible, they would even roll back the right of women to vote.

    Well just goes to show why home schooling is better than public schooling. Because at we had to do chores. We were raised in the country, counting birds on a wire was hard, so I made me slingshot, made it so much easier to count birds that way. Oh excuse we were talking about Votes. I say “We The People” teach these dirtbags how to count in 2018 by beating their dirtbag Donkey Party.

    Lyndon Johnson was called “Landslide Lyndon” because he told his democratic boss he needed 100 more votes. They came off sequential tombstones. When his opponent learned this he quietly conceded, and feared for his life he did not call for a recount. Voter fraud has been condoned in the democratic party, anything they think they can get away they do. When drivers licenses are mailed, a voter registration comes with it, now with issuance of drivers licenses are issued to illegals they can even get around voter id laws. All licenses should show immigration status. To vote the voters should have to learn English, that should be a prerequisite to citizenship. Also they should refute allegiance to sharaih law. Otherwise how can they assimulate into our

  • ocrttol

    I believe that any study of the results of any vote will show that there were illegal votes. But they don’t matter at all. They are so few that their number would be miniscule compared to the voting gaps between the candidates.

    But complaining about illegal votes will take the attention away from voter suppression, which is the real crime in the U.S. — apparently all done by Republicans at the state level.
