New Jersey politicians charged in massive mail-in ballot voter fraud scheme, face years in prison

New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal has filed voter fraud charges against four men, including two Paterson City officials, who allegedly engaged in a mail-in ballot scheme during a special election last month.

Grewal charged Paterson City Councilman Michael Jackson, Councilman-elect Alex Mendez, and two other men after the U.S. Postal Inspection Service alerted the state attorney general's office that it had found hundreds of ballots in a single Paterson City mailbox, InsiderNJ reported.

According to WNBC-TV, more than 3,000 ballots were set aside over voting fraud concerns in the Paterson City Council election — 16,747 were received, but only 13,557 were accepted — meaning a whopping 19%, or nearly 1-in-5, were rejected.

More than 800 of the rejected ballots were invalidated because they were found tethered together in mailboxes.

The alleged voter fraud is particularly significant in the election because one incumbent councilman kept his seat by just eight votes, while Mendez was elected by fewer than 250 votes, WNBC reported.

They should play the race card by saying
“White Democrats have been getting away with voter fraud for 100 years. Why do the feds only charge people of color”

Then he should name names on DNC voter fraud efforts.

If mail in voting is allowed, the results are known before the voting happens.

Article is a shout out for other fraudsters to make sure not to tether the ballots together.

Hmm . . . what if Grewal discovers that this kind of fraud is how his boss got elected? Will he cover it up or go public?

“Article is a shout out for other fraudsters to make sure not to tether the ballots together”

My thinking also. Sacrifice low-level fools now to ferret out weaknesses in the systems.

Voter fraud? In the United States? Mail in ballots are now the new hanging chads, and the typical winner is always a DemocRAT.

There needs to be some reward money offered for exposing voter/election fraud. And maybe some kind of public voter rolls that can be audited by citizens that can find dozens of ballots going to an address.

Voter fraud was much easier with the machines. Democrat thugs would throw out “poll monitors”. Simply go in the machines and record fraudulent votes, scribble illegible signatures on the rolls and then count the votes. Republican complained that fewer than sixty people were videotaped going into a voting precinct yet over nine hundred votes were recorded virtually all for Democrats. Of course vile Democrat judges threw out the cases.

Every instance of Voter Fraud needs to be ‘shouted out’.

Voter fraud doesn’t have to happen on a massive scale. Just ONE single fraudelent vote can swing an election.

Think about that.
