Liberals like to act as if voter fraud is a myth that does not exist in this country. Well, a new report out of Chicago reveals that 119 dead residents voted a total of 229 times after they were buried.
An investigation by a local Chicago TV station found that when people die, they are often no removed from the voter rolls for years, creating an opportunity for huge fraud to occur.
One election official, Jim Allen, blamed the voter fraud on “clerical errors, involving family members with the same names and addresses” but the investigation found that “in some cases, there was no clear explanation.
From CBS Chicago:
Take Tadeusz Ciesla. Records show he voted in 2010.
But his nephew Marek Ciesla says that’s impossible because he died in 1998.
“That’s a fraud,” he says.
Informed of the findings, Don Rose, a political consultant, says: “Some of these could be accidental or just some individual who says, ‘I really like such and such a candidate so I’m going to take advantage of this — vote until they stop me.’”
The election official claims that 60,000 dead people have been purged from the voter rolls in the past decade, but 2 investigators in Chicago found multiple examples of that not happening:
Earl Smith says he reported the 1997 death of his father, also named Earl Smith. But records indicate his father has voted twice after he died. Allen says the board identifies and removes most dead voters. “Any time you can clean up the rolls it helps reduce and eliminate the prospect of any kind of mistake or fraud,” Allen says.
Robert Sallee says he tried to do that by reporting his mother’s death multiple times. “They’re just not taking her off the rolls,” he says.
Despite Democrats insisting that voter fraud does not exist, there is significant evidence that in some of America’s largest cities, such as Chicago, officials are failing to properly clean up the voting roles. The election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could be one of the closest elections in our lifetime and every vote counts.
