20 Thousand Illegally Voted in 2016 Election in Chicago, New Hampshire

But there's no real voter fraud problem.

Reports of voter fraud have cropped up after investigations into the 2016 election, and both Chicago and New Hampshire have some explaining to do.

The Chicago Republican Party filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Chicago Board of Elections and there was a discrepancy in the number of those who are registered to vote versus votes cast. A list of 1,101,178 individuals were handed over, according to Fox News, however there were 1,115,664 votes cast. The Chicago GOP says there could have been as few as 14,000 illegal votes or as many as 16,000.

Cleveland told Fox News that multiple FOIA requests were sent but the elections board has been “stonewalling us for six months.” The election board has labeled the GOP’s claims as “patently false” and say they are looking at “incomplete data.”

In New Hampshire, 6,540 people were registered to vote in the 2016 election using out-of-state driver’s licenses. Republican New Hampshire House Speaker Shawn Jasper said the vast majority of those voters have never obtained an official drivers license for the state, nor registered any vehicles. The Washington Times reports, “Since election day, Republicans have charged that a significant number of non-resident Democrats, principally from Massachusetts, flowed into New Hampshire to vote illegally, tilting close elections to their party. Mr. Jasper’s findings give credence, though not outright proof, to those allegations.”

The report added:

Over 80 percent, 5,313, who used non-N.H. driver’s licenses, had neither a state licenses nor had registered a motor vehicle.

There are 196 people today who are being investigated for voting illegally both in New Hampshire and in other states.

Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in News Hampshire by 2,736 votes.

Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan defeated incumbent Republican Kelly Ayotte by 1,017 votes.

James O’Keefe released undercover video of how easy it is to vote in New Hampshire without actually living there:

But Democrats would like us all to think that there’s nothing to see here. Move along.
