Yesterday, a Biden/Harris canvasser knocked on my door and handed me a flyer supporting the Democratic candidate and the Fair Wage Amendment. When I told him I had plans to vote in person on Election Day, he asked why I hadn’t considered a mail-in ballot. I told him I was concerned about election fraud, and he told me that was just a scare tactic invented by Republicans. I kindly asked him to get off my property.
The state of Pennsylvania has already rejected nearly 400,000 requests for mail-in ballots. Up to 90% of them were found to be duplicates – which officials claim were submitted unintentionally by voters who forgot they had already requested ballots for the presidential election when they submitted votes for the primary.
In some counties, up to 25% of applications were found to be duplicates.
“Workers must handle every application individually,” says Bill Turner, Acting Elections Director for Chester County. “We basically have to treat them all the same…we’re taking a tremendous amount of staff time and effort, only to find out it’s a duplicate.”
Activist groups are exacerbating the problem by distributing mail-in ballot applications en masse. This causes confusion among voters and increases the likelihood of duplicates.
Duplicate ballots and other issues make it impossible for the state to maintain accurate information online, which leads to skewed polls. And we know from the 2016 election that some people will decide not to vote if the polls show a clear winner.
Keep in mind Pennsylvania is a key swing state that carries 20 electoral votes. Obama won the state by just 309,840 votes in 2012 and Trump won the state by less than 45,000 votes in 2016.
Biden currently leads Pennsylvania by 3.7 points.
Election fraud is more insidious in the state of Texas, where Biden operative Dallas Jones has been accused of participating in a ballot-harvesting scheme in the state’s most populous county (read more here).
Zul Mohamed, a mayoral candidate running in Carrolton, was arrested this month when investigators found a box of requested ballots inside him home. Some had already been opened.
The ballots were picked up from an illegally-obtained PO box belonging to a nursing home. The individuals named on the ballots had no knowledge of the PO box.
Mohamed was charged with 25 counts of knowingly possessing a ballot with intent to defraud and 84 counts of providing false information on a voting application. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
In September, Project Veritas identified a ballot-harvesting scheme taking place in Minneapolis – the district represented by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
Video footage posted to Snapchat shows Liban Mohamed bragging about the hundreds of absentee ballots he had in his car. All were listed as belonging to Jamal Osman, his brother and a member of the Minneapolis City Council.
The scheme was exposed by Omar Jamal, a community leader and the head of the city’s Somali Watchdog Group. Jamal described Liban as one of Rep. Omar’s many operatives. “[Omar] will do anything that she can do to get elected,” said Jamal. “And she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that.”
Rep. Omar’s campaign has also been accused of swiping ballots from residents of nursing homes and paying locals to vote Democratic.
This is exactly what Trump said would happen and we can expect more of it leading up to Election Day.
Last week, the Heritage Election Fraud Database said it had identified up to 1,300 proven instances of fraud, including people submitting ballots for deceased individuals, people breaking into mailboxes to steal ballots, and people voting in multiple states. The database also reported multiple instances where postal workers were caught dumping ballots into the trash.
Author’s Note: At this point, we can assume that the results of the 2020 election – if we ever get them – will not be an accurate reflection of the American people’s opinion.
