“In 2011, Spakovsky was serving on the Fairfax County Electoral Board and personally witnessed mass voter-registration fraud.
We discovered 278 registered in just that one county, and we took them off the rolls and sent the names to the Obama Justice Department [at the time headed by Eric Holder], and they did nothing about it, Spakovsky said. Here was 278 cases of potential voter fraud, and they did nothing to investigate it.
I predict Sessions will take this seriously. I think he understands what an issue this is.
Theres much work to be done at the state level, too, if the system is to be cleaned up.
Since its entirely legal for non-citizens, living in the U.S. legally with green cards, to have drivers licenses, the voter ID laws alone are not sufficient to wipe out fraudulent voting.
A green-card holder simply has to lie on his voter registration application, check the box claiming to be a citizen, and hes a registered voter. There is no system in place to validate that he checked the citizenship box in good faith.”
This country needs to go to the German system of voter ID,or something very much like it.If you’re not a citizen,you don’t get to vote.
