A new video by National Review explains why voter fraud is a massive problem in U.S. elections, from dead people voting to non-citizens receiving a ballot.
“Democrats like to pretend voter fraud isn't a problem -- but it is. This video proves it,” states NR.
In a corresponding article, columnist John Fund points out how the media has recently taken Donald Trump to task for recommending poll monitoring around the country, even calling the suggestion racist, but he calls them “flat wrong” and encourages them to take this problem seriously:
They should talk to Chris Matthews and travel to Philly…
Chris Matthews, the liberal MSNBC host who comes from Pennsylvania, vehemently opposes requiring ID at polling places. But he agrees that voter fraud is a Philadelphia tradition. In 2011, on his show Hardball, he explained a common scheme: “People call up, see if you voted or you’re not going to vote. Then all of a sudden somebody does come and vote for you. This is an old strategy in big-city politics. . . . I know all about it in North Philly — it’s what went on, and I believe it still goes on.”
Racism has played a part in recent elections. Recall back in 2012, when the New Black Panther Party intimidated white voters in Philadelphia and were excused by the Obama administration. And somehow Trump’s suggestion to prevent fraud is problematic?
“The way to avoid disputed elections and political turmoil is to make sure as few problems as possible happen while votes are being cast. It’s almost impossible to detect fraud after secret ballots are thrown into a common pool. Sending properly trained election monitors — both governmental and private — where appropriate is one safeguard. Another is having prosecutors issue a warning right before Election Day that fraudsters will be prosecuted — a threat that the Obama administration has been singularly uninterested in. Giving federal grants to states to help them pay to upgrade and standardize their voting machines would also be a good step.
But until actions against voter fraud are taken seriously, the U.S. election process is entirely at risk, as Fund notes, and makes the outcomes untrustworthy.
