    Francis J. DeGregory was a World War II Army veteran who served in the Battle of the Bulge. He died in 2008 and is interred at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. Dara Welty was an aspiring opera singer and La Jolla native who died of a blood clot during a visit to Bolivia in 1998, at 22. Both went on to vote — repeatedly — in San Diego County elections, records show. They remain registered to vote to this day, DeGregory as a Republican and Welty as a Democrat.

    The U.S. Justice Department plans to get involved in Wisconsin’s voter ID lawsuit, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a recent interview. “We have already filed suit in Texas and North Carolina,” Holder said. “I expect that we are going to be filing in cases that are already in existence in Wisconsin as well as in Ohio.” Holder’s comments were made in an interview with ABC News that aired Sunday. Holder’s office confirmed the statement but would not elaborate on what kind of action was planned. Wisconsin’s Republican attorney general, J.B.

    In true Tokyo Rose fashion the Republican wing of Uniparty has sent Ann “Skeletor” Coulter on a psy-ops mission to try to save Thad Cochran one of their oldest and most reliable rubber stamps. Skeletor moans about Chris McDaniel’s supporters not being able to “think of anything but winning this one primary…” as if that is a bad thing. Being of the Republican wing of Uniparty she doesn’t give a damn about America – that’s not what her side is about – she only cares about seeing that those who stand in the way of big government are defeated. “Vote...

    JACKSON — A federal lawsuit seeking voter records has been refiled in Mississippi’s southern district federal court. Texas group True the Vote and 22 Mississippi residents refiled their lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson against Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann and the state Republican Party. The new version of the suit adds election commissions in Copiah, Hinds, Jefferson Davis, Lauderdale, Leake, Madison, Rankin, Simpson and Yazoo counties. The plaintiffs say federal law requires authorities to release voting rolls and poll books without erasing voters’ personal information. They also say the law doesn’t allow fees for redaction, saying...

    However, since the election, the McDaniel campaign quickly found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week. This is illegal and their votes should not be counted. The Chris McDaniel for Senate campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties where this occurred. McDaniel supporters were barred from reviewing voter rolls in nine Mississippi counties. On Thursday True the Vote, the nation’s largest voter integrity organization, filed a lawsuit against the Mississippi Republican Party for destruction of absentee ballot documents, double voting and discarded legal...

By all accounts, Mr. Cochran had needed to be talked into running. He told one national publication that he had planned to retire, and another that the first thing he wanted to do after Election Day was take a nap. And while the snowy-haired, 76-year-old Republican tried to hush whispers that he was not quite as sharp...

The bill was introduced on Monday, according to New York Daily News. It would supposedly only apply to illegal immigrants with no criminal history who can prove they have lived and paid taxes in New York for three years. In total, an estimated 2.7 million individuals would reap benefits...

    Granite Staters are repeatedly told — by Democratic politicians and the activist left — that voter fraud is a “myth” and that the only effect of voter ID laws is to “suppress” the vote. They repeat that spin even as instances of actual fraud pile up. The latest involves Lorin C. Schneider Jr. of Carver, Mass. It is a fact, documented by records in Hillsborough County Superior Court North, that Schneider has pled guilty to one felony and two misdemeanor charges of wrongful voting. According to the state Attorney General’s office, Schneider voted in Manchester’s Ward 9 in the presidential...

    It wasn’t the biggest story following Tuesday’s elections in various states, but it was the biggest and most-ignored non-story. Mississippi’s new voter ID law got its first run in the June 3 primary, and the sky did not fall. Despite the tiresome and disproven claims by opponents that such laws cause wholesale voter disenfranchisement and are intended to suppress votes, Mississippi “sailed through” its first test of the new ID requirements, according to The Clarion Ledger, the newspaper of Jackson, Miss. Aside from being able to use any form of government-issued photo ID, like every other state with ID requirements,...

    “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act was passed in to law nearly five decades ago…The real voter fraud is people trying to deny our rights by making voting harder in the first place.” President Barack Obama, 2014 National Action Network Convention in New York City. Though many believe them to be an effort at voter disenfranchisement, a recent poll suggest most Americans are actually in support of voter identification laws, perhaps making them harder to combat. A total of 31 states have active voter ID laws....

    GALVESTON, Texas — A man who voted absentee in Texas and Minnesota during the 2012 general election then touted his bogus balloting on Facebook has pleaded guilty. A judge in Galveston on Tuesday fined Richard Alan Collier $4,000 after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor violation of Texas election law. Collier, who pleaded guilty to attempt to commit illegal voting, claimed residence in both states when seeking absentee ballots for the November 2012 election. Authorities say Collier then voted in Anoka (uh-NOH'-kuh) County, Minnesota, and in Galveston County. Prosecutors in Galveston say a tip that Collier posted a Facebook message...

    No word on who she voted for, but there is one party that is committed to fighting for the rights of the undead to vote while denouncing any Voter ID measure as racist. Evelyn E. Burwell’s family was surprised to learn she voted in the 2012 general and primary elections. They knew she was an avid voter, but she’s been dead since 1997. Burwell is one of about 6,100 deceased people still registered to vote in Nassau County, a Newsday computer analysis shows. The former Wantagh resident, who died at age 74, is also among roughly 270 people that records show voted in...

    RICHMOND, Va. — Some 308,000 Virginia voters are also registered elsewhere, according to an analysis of 22 states’ election records. The finding follows Watchdog.org’s report of 44,000 people who appear to be registered in both Virginia and Maryland. The latest survey found the 308,000 double registrations by matching names, birth dates and the last four digits of Social Security numbers. The Virginia Voters Alliance, which reported the results, identified “big gaps” in the voter-registration process. “Say you move to Kansas and tell the election office there that you were registered in Virginia when you submit your Kansas voter-registration form,” explained...

    What we will expose in this article is indicative of Voter Fraud in all States and in National Elections. Is it illegals voting? No. Is it voter machine fraud? No. Both are very serious, and they do happen. The worst Voter Fraud is the politicians defrauding voters into thinking they are the opposite of what they really are. This fraud often decides elections and swings more votes than the other forms of voter fraud. Today while driving to buy groceries in Reno I heard two Ben Kieckhefer radio ads, minutes apart. Both of his ads claimed that he was an...

    Seven out of ten registered voters support voter ID laws, which makes them racist or something. Liberals rail against these policies that help maintain the integrity of our constitutional republic, but the vast majority disagree. The survey conducted by Fox News found a majority in every demographic (race, age, income, sex, political bent) support voter ID laws—including 53% of self-described liberals, 70% of men, and 71% of women. …

    The Swedish election board in Solna should have received a complete data file of Swedish citizens voting in Denmark by 28 April the latest. It did not arrive. “We must have access to this data 30 days before the day of election to be able to make up our register of electors in time,” Hanns Lejsater, an official at the election authority, told Swedish paper Goteborgs-Posten. […] The Swedish election board is missing data about possible double voters from 10 EU countries, mostly the newest members of the EU but also Denmark and the UK. …
