After numerous calls to ease voter requirements by hysterical Democrats, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla confirms that duplicate ballots, sent in by mail, were rampant during his state’s Super Tuesday contest. Ah, the proverbial fly in the liberal ointment – and just as the big names were on social media bandying the pandemic about as an excuse for changing the way we vote.
The citizen watchdog group Election Integrity Project California alerted Padilla there was suspicious activity and requested he and his office take a peek into vote by mail ballots. The request was a few days before the March 3 contest, and now – about a month and a half later – Mr. Padilla has uncovered double-voting in one case and suspected double-balloting by registered voters.
Padilla penned a missive on April 7, stating that voters identified with “duplicate voting history” are “suspected to have cast two ballots for the March primary election.”
Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) President J. Christian Adams spoke with Breitbart News, praising the watchdog’s ongoing efforts to ferret out bad processes and places that seem to have ongoing voter fraud issues and convincing state officials to act. “Moving the California Secretary of State to share evidence of apparent double voting among duplicated registrants is a testament to their research methodology and judgment,” he said.
Other states have been confronted with a series of ballot woes, including New Mexico, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
One or Two Ballots is no Big Deal. Right?
Election Integrity Project California claims there are more than 30,000 double registered citizens on the voter rolls. Likewise, New Mexico has 1,700 dead people on the roster, 1,519 voters over 100 years old, and more than 3,100 who were flagged for duplicate registrations.
It’s the same story in Allegheny County, PA, and Detroit, MI – larger populations just mean more abuse. It’s systemic.
Liberty Nation’s Kelli Ballard explains how the Democrats are aiding and abetting these transgressions on individual states’ voter rolls as they advocate for much looser requirements for voters:
“Obama’s wingman [Eric Holder] now chairs the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, a group that works on redrawing heavily gerrymandered districts so that Democrats have a better chance of competing against Republicans where the GOP holds more support. He believes there needs to be a ‘sea change’ in the way Americans think to allow everyone the ability to vote from home … Holder mentions nothing about protecting the integrity of voting and how to prevent voter fraud …”
It is a huge deal. Election integrity and confidence in the voting system might prevent whichever candidate and party is on the losing side from constant cries of election fraud. California certainly isn’t the first state to be under scrutiny nor will it be the last. But kudos for admitting there was a problem on Super Tuesday and making concerns about the problems well-known and well-documented. Mistakes happen in many cases and thank the Founding Fathers for their wisdom in the Electoral College. But opening the chicken coop to the fox by way of willy-nilly pandemic inspired policy is no way to ensure every American vote will count: Once.
