The Department of Justice is investigating at least four Massachusetts DMV workers who helped facilitate the sale of fake ID documents to illegal aliens for the purpose of committing voter fraud.
Six defendants have been charged in total thus far via the Boston federal court. The Free Beacon reports:
The Department of Justice alleges four state workers at the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles cooperated with two other individuals to sell documents to illegal aliens. The complex operation involved stolen Puerto Rican Social Security cards and birth certificates. Clients would take those false documents to the now-charged RMV clerks in order to obtain drivers’ licenses and ID cards, according to the DOJ:
The scheme involved several steps. First, it is alleged that Flako, the document dealer, sold a Puerto Rican birth certificate and U.S. Social Security card to Brea, the document vendor, for approximately $900. Brea, in turn, sold the stolen identities for over $2,000 to clients seeking legitimate identities in Massachusetts. These clients included illegal aliens, individuals who were previously deported, and an individual who admitted to previously facing drug charges.
After Flako sold Brea the false identification papers, Brea typically used the counterfeit documents and false identities and addresses to fraudulently register the clients to vote in the City of Boston. Then, Brea and the client brought the stolen identities to the Haymarket RMV, where Medina, Gracia, Jordan, and/or Brimage would accept cash to illegally issue authentic RMV documents, including Massachusetts licenses and ID cards. The clerks also accepted cash to use the RMV’s system to run queries, including Social Security number audits, to confirm that the identities the clients were stealing actually belonged to verifiable individuals.
The six defendants are charged with aggravated identity theft. An anonymous tip to the Massachusetts state police in 2015 initiated the investigation that ultimately led to the charges, and the Department of Justice continues to investigate.
"The investigation into the corruption and identity theft scheme is ongoing," read the statement. Of course the crucial point is that this happens to be one case, in one city, where the parties involved were caught. We all know there have been a myriad other attempts -- both successful and unsuccessful -- to subvert the integrity of our voting system that have yet to be publicly exposed.
