Apparently there have been over a hundred of “clerical errors” in the voting system in Chicago. CBS 2 Chicago reported that 119 deceased residents have voted 229 times, even though they were in fact buried.
There are hundreds of cases where a name was listed as voting multiple times in the Chicago Board of Election voter histories after they were declared dead. One man who passed away in 1993, was even listed as voting 11 times after his death. Another man who passed away in 1994 has “voted” six times since his burial.
“There are just a few instances here where a father came in for a son, or a neighbor was given the wrong ballot application and signed it,” said Jim Allen, city election board spokesman.
Well, Allen’s “just a few” is a drastically incorrect estimate.
Not to mention, family members of the decease have come forward to say they have reported the deaths. But, the names are still being used.
“They’re just not taking her off the rolls,” said Robert Sallee to CBS 2, who has reported this mother’s death 1998 multiple times.
Chicago isn’t the only state experiencing voter fraud.
Officials in the states of Florida and Virginia have both charged three people of this crime. A Florida woman allegedly tempered with absentee ballots and was changing ballots left blank to support a mayoral candidate. She has admitted to the crimes and was charged with two felonies.
Another Florida woman and Virginia man filed bogus voter registration forms.
“In the Iowa capital of Des Moines, county election officials referred three cases of suspected voter fraud to police earlier this week, leading to one arrest on Thursday, police said,” writes Reuters. In one of these cases a woman was arrested for voting twice.
All of these are just fraud crimes on an individual level. While recent evidence found by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposes a Democratic operative admitting to voter fraud on a larger scale.
“We manipulated the vote with money and action, not with laws,” said Scott Foval, the Democratic operative on a recorded tape. “It’s a pretty easy thing for Republicans to say, ‘Well, they’re bussing people in!’ Well, you know what? We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you fuckin’ assholes for fifty years, and we’re not going to stop now.”
So is the system, as Trump would call it, “rigged”?
Editor’s note: As we have mentioned earlier, Trump’s statements have put every voting site on notice. It is much less likely that fraud will be widespread at this point.
