Progressives/Liberals/Democrats continue to make the tiresome and false assertion that vote fraud “doesn’t exist.”
They’ve boxed themselves into this laughable corner because it supports their ideological and partisan argument that any effort to ensure the integrity of the vote is a ridiculous racist plot to suppress minority and Democratic voters.
Now comes the DuPage County DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin who has filed vote fraud charges against five people. They’re innocent until proven guilty, of course, but the investigation that uncovered the felony fraud case cannot be easily dismissed because “vote fraud doesn’t exist”–the threadbare argument of left-wing partisans.
That’s not the only vote fraud charges to emerge following the 2020 election. Here are some others:
Last week, the mayor pro tem of a Northern California city resigned from office after pleading guilty to election fraud charges. Crescent City Mayor Pro Tem Alex Campbell entered the plea to making a false declaration of candidacy in Del Norte County Superior Court, local news outlet Wild Rivers Outpost reported, citing the city’s clerk’s office.
Separately, in Aberdeen, Mississippi, a judge ordered a new runoff electionfor a city alderman seat after more than three-quarters of absentee ballots cast in the June 2020 Democratic runoff election were found to be invalid, while a notary involved in the election was arrested.
I don’t know what candidate or party would have benefited from the alleged DuPage County vote fraud. Nor am I joining the chorus of Trump supporters who insist that he won in a “landslide” but that he was cheated out of the victory.
At the same time, it’s hard to tell how many people did actually engage in fraud but weren’t caught. The problem is that opportunities for fraud are everywhere present in the progressive/liberal/Democratic schemes that, for example, send out sample ballots willy-nilly out to everyone listed on an unverified list of name. Or that political operatives are allowed to pick up of marked ballots, destroying any semblance of a chain of custody. Or that mailed-in ballots can be counted well after polls close. Or that no form of personal identification is required for to vote in person.
We will again be reminded that “studies show” that vote fraud is as rare as, in one case, “being struck by lightening.” Many are based on the number of actual prosecutions, overlooking–intentionally or not–the fact that the study does not account for the number of fraud cases that are not discovered or prosecuted. Perhaps one day a study will appear that will include the universe of fraud cases, but such studies would be difficult, if not impossible, and clearly not pursued by academics who are overwhelming on the left.
Until such time, procedures designed to halt vote fraud are not only prudent, but also clearly necessary. So, here’s are kudos for Berlin for going after the cheaters who destroy my vote.
