It Turns Out Election Fraud Does Exist

Time and again we have heard the claim from Democrats that voter fraud is non-existent, or nearly so. That claim has been made in an effort to do away with Voter ID requirements, stating they aren't needed to prevent voter fraud or that they are racist.

Too bad they're wrong, either through ignorance or complicity with those who have committed voter fraud or aided its commission.

A case in point, Minnesota.

Same day registration and other liberal “reforms” have made it easy for ineligible voters to cast ballots in many states.

Here in Minnesota, a case is pending in our Supreme Court that challenges same day registration and various actions by our Democratic Secretary of State that have enabled illegal voting.

According to allegations made by the plaintiffs in this case voter fraud was large enough to affect a number of election results.

A new voter fraud case before the Minnesota Supreme Court claims 1,366 ineligible felons have cast at least 1,670 fraudulent votes in recent statewide elections, possibly tipping the outcome of close contests, including the 2008 U.S. Senate race.

The state's Secretary of State has merely added to the controversy by interfering with the investigation “by refusing to turn over either to polling places or to the plaintiffs in the lawsuit the complete list, which the state maintains, of those who have lost their voting rights. It is hard to see any possible reason why this list should be a secret, other than the Democrats’ desire that convicted felons, who overwhelmingly vote their way, get away with voting illegally.”

If it hadn't been for the alleged fraud, it's quite possible sitting Senator Al Franken (D-MN) would not have been elected and Obamacare wouldn't have passed in the US Senate. If it turns out that Franken was indeed elected fraudulently, then as John Hindraker writes, “Al Franken should be turned out of the Senate.”
