Voter Fraud? What Voter Fraud?




There appeared in The New Yorker magazine, in October 2012, an article entitled “The Voter-Fraud Myth” by Jane Mayer. The article cites anecdotal evidence, such as the Teresa Sharp incident in Hamilton County OH, to support its contention. The Ohio Voter Integrity Project challenged her right to vote based on a government-compiled list of local properties and mistakenly identifying her house as a vacant lot. Key words here: “government-compiled list.” Did the Ohio Voter Integrity Project correctly challenge Sharpe’s registration? Yes, based upon examine of a government-compiled list. Did the article discuss that the government-compiled list was incorrect? No. Then the article cited Sharpe’s comments as if she is an expert.

It was like a kangaroo court. There were, like, ninety-four people being challenged, and my family and I were the only ones contesting it! I looked around. The board members and the stenographer, they were all white people. The lady bringing these challenges, she was white, and reminded me of Gladys Kravitz – the nosy neighbor on the sitcom “Bewitched.”

But NOWHERE in the article is it mentioned that Sharpe was prevented from voting. The article concluded that voter fraud is a myth, that other incidences have never happened, that any challenge alleges voter fraud.

There is an article entitled “Policy Brief on the Truth About ‘Voter Fraud’” at the Brennan Center For Justice at New York University School of Law. The article concludes that fraud by individual voters is both irrational and extremely rare because the single vote is simply not worth the price. Key words here: “individual” and “single.” The article continues:

Because voter fraud is essentially irrational, it is not surprising that no credible evidence suggests a voter fraud epidemic. There is no documented wave or trend of individuals voting multiple times, voting as someone else, or voting despite knowing that they are ineligible.

I agree with the Brennan Center – individual voter fraud is indeed rare. But massive voter fraud is not, as these sources illustrate:

Rick Hasen, professor of law and political science at the University of California, Irvine, when referring to voter fraud, says, “…do it wholesale, rather than retail,” meaning commit voter fraud massively rather than individually.

The shameful fact is that Democrats will continue, in the face of overwhelming evidence, to maintain that voter fraud is a myth. And the MSM will go right along with them.

But that’s just my opinion.
