Despite claims from the left and some swampy "Republicans"–looking at you, Romney–voter fraud is in fact a major issue in the United States. Not only that, voter fraud has been a major issue for far longer than President Trump has been in office.
An interesting voice on voter fraud is John Fund.
John Fund is national-affairs columnist for National Review. He worked for the Wall Street Journal for more than two decades, and was a member of the newspaper’s editorial board from 1995 to 2001.
He is the author of Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, written in 2004, in which he argues the American election system is "befitting an emerging Third World country rather than the world's leading democracy."
Here's a few clips I cut down and put together from a Blaze TV interview from 2012 with John Fund about voter fraud in which they discuss New Black Panther voter intimidation, election fraud, an older Project Veritas sting on Eric Holder, and more.
Then a look into the CEO of Runbeck Election Services based out of Arizona that prints approximately 100,000,000 ballots each election. First you get a look into Runbeck's naive views on voter fraud and then I show a few clips of errors made by Runbeck in both current and former elections.
Eric Holder, mentioned above, serves as Chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. He served in the Obama Administration as the 82nd Attorney General of the United States from February 2009 to April 2015.
In a 2011 article in the LA Times titled, "Atty. Gen. Holder takes aims at new state voting laws," journalist David G. Savage writes:
In a speech Tuesday at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library in Austin, Texas, Holder quoted Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a veteran of the civil rights movement, as saying that voting rights were being attacked in “a deliberate and systematic attempt to prevent millions of elderly voters, young voters, students [and] minority and low-income voters from exercising their constitutional right to engage in the democratic process.”
He said he was troubled by laws in South Carolina and Texas that require registered voters to show state-issued photo identification before casting a ballot. Alabama, Kansas, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Wisconsin also require photo IDs.
Just starting to dig into some new players as MaidenGate continues to unfold. Looking into proven instances of fraud or mistakes prior to this election is helpful and insightful (I think!)
Will write more later today on the subject. :)
