As the countdown to the most highly contended and popular presidential elections winds down to 10 and counting – with more than 12 million voters already casting their ballots – it is being reported that voter fraud is most likely taking place in nearly every critical swing state across America.
One of America’s top investigative journalists, Sharyl Attkisson, explains that authorities on the matter say it does not take much foul play to turn the election results around.
“Some experts tell us it would be possible to commit fraud in relatively few key counties to affect the outcome of the presidential race,” Attkisson told WND on Thursday.
Republicans beware …
Tyler Cohen Wood, who is a cyber security expert, explained on Full Measure with Sharyl Attkissonthat shenanigans taking place to alter the election are not just rumors – as the mainstream media often reports.
“The threat to voting systems by computer hackers is real,” Wood told Attkisson on her show. “[What] I would be going after is the central polling system, and I would also go after the third-party administrators of the people who are taking in the votes, which is what happened in Arizona and Illinois … and possibly Florida.”
The host agrees that turning a blind eye to voter fraud – as being inconsequential or insignificant – could be a huge mistake for those looking for a fair election.
“I’m no expert in voter fraud, but the concept is very real,” Attkisson alerted WND. “We would be naive to believe that there aren’t political forces inside and outside the U.S. that would like to affect our elections and that have the technical ability to do so.”
Summing up accounts that she has received from top experts on voter fraud, the conservative host says that there are many sobering accounts pointing to a rigged – or at least significantly manipulated – election.
“The main questions are: How pervasive is it, and is it enough to make a difference in an election outcome?” Attkisson impressed. “If it’s done properly, we would never know it – or at least be able to prove it.”
States of deception
It is reported by Politico that major swing states – such as Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin – are registering irregularities at the ballot box, which further leads to the point of contention raised by Attkisson – that it is not necessary for voter fraud to be prevalent to affect the outcome … it just needs to be strategically placed.
After multiple instances of dead men and women voting in Colorado last month, a dozen more cases of voter fraud were reported in the Centennial State this week, when Coloradans were caught allegedly voting twice. Of the 12 incidents, six involved the same voters submitting ballots twice, while the other six voted in both Colorado and Kansas.
“You’d be surprised how often people double vote,” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach insisted to CBS4, noting that around 10,000 people are currently registered to vote in both Colorado and Kansas. “Two of the cases are serial double voters. I think people discover they can get away with it and keep doing it.”
It is reported that state authorities are looking into the matter.
“[The current probe in the two states] has triggered criminal investigations in El Paso and Jefferson counties, along with a broad investigation by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office,” CBS4 stated.
Some of the alleged violators are expected to be prosecuted.
“We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” Colorado Secretary of State Wayne told the station.
More suspicious incidents occurred in Florida, where an 83-year-old Republican lifer was surprised to find a new Democratic voter ID card in the mail. When the noticeably upset Marina Agosto reported the mix-up, she became even more frustrated with the flawed system.
“You must have forgotten,” the Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections told Agosto, who found out that the group “Mi Familia Vota” submitted a fraudulent voter registration application in her name, which was rife with inaccurate information, such as an incorrect date of birth.
After being contacted, the executive director of the Hispanic organization insisted that his people are looking into the matter by investigating 200 additional applications submitted by the same person who is responsible for filling out Agosto’s bogus application.
Michigan is another state where voter fraud was recorded.
“Undercover journalist James O’Keefe obtained a ballot by telling poll workers he was Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan,” WND reported. “He got another ballot using the real name of rapper Eminem, Marshall Bruce Mathers III. O’Keefe went to a number of poll sites in August and easily obtained ballots using a variety of names that were not his own, including those of prominent Michiganders opposed to vote-ID laws. Michigan allows people without ID to vote if they merely fill out an affidavit claiming they are who they say they are.”
In New Hampshire, election officials in Nashua, Durham and Manchester allowed workers of O’Keefe’s Project Veritas to vote without proper identification documentation showing their residency.
“I don’t know the legality of it,” a campaign staffer for Bernie Sanders in the Granite State admitted. “Perhaps it’s voter fraud.”
Vote flipping was also reported in the Tar Heel state, according to NPR, which announced that voters are instructed by the North Carolina State Board of Elections to double-check their ballots before submitting them.
This problem is nothing new in the Atlantic swing state.
“Previously, the North Carolina State Board of Elections found more than 35,000 people may have double-voted during the 2012 election,” WND’s Garth Kant informed. “The Joint Legislative Elections Oversight Committee discovered 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and date of birth were registered in both North Carolina and another state, and voted in both states in 2012.”
This week in the Buckeye State, the Hamilton County Board of Elections found that someone registered at least three deceased former residents to vote in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area, according to WCPO.
Philadelphia Republican City Committee Chairman Joe DeFelice insists that voter fraud is prevalent in Pennsylvania.
“In Philadelphia, there’s constant Republican disenfranchisement going on,” DeFelice asserted. “It’s happening all the time.”
It is maintained that the City of Brotherly Love has been a recent mecca of voter fraud.
“Philadelphia became ground zero for suspicions of voter fraud in the 2012 presidential election when some inner-city precincts reported a statistically improbable 100-percent vote for President Obama,” Kant recounted. “Given the prior controversy, there’s now a battle under way between Republicans and Democrats to assemble armies of poll watchers to look for signs of voter fraud on Nov. 8. Republicans are losing that race, badly. Out of 66 wards, Democrats have submitted lists on monitor for 33 of them, Republicans, only eight … [In] 2012, Obama received between 98 and 100 percent of the vote in precincts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Cleveland, Ohio. Local officials called for federal investigations, but not one was launched.”
To the south, Virginia is no stranger to voter fraud – a state that has fairly recently turned from red to blue.
“The FBI is investigating possible voter registration fraud after as many as 20 voter applications were submitted with the names of dead people,” Kant noted. “All the applications were turned in by a voter registration group called HarrisonburgVOTES. Its officials had no comment. Republican lawmakers held a news conference last month to say the incident proved voter fraud is real, as is the need for voter ID laws.”
This is a problem that many Democrats refuse to acknowledge.
“Oftentimes we hear our Democrat colleagues suggest that voter fraud doesn’t exist in Virginia or is a myth,” House Speaker William H. Howell (R-Stafford) argued. “Well, it does indisputably exist.”
Meanwhile in the Silver State, NPR announced that there have been numerous accounts where machines were recorded switching votes.
