FACT CHECK: Twitter, Politifact, Snopes WRONG To Suggest Mail Order Voter Fraud Is Rare

By John Paluska, Founder of The Daily Fodder

When President Trump went on a news media crusade to overblow the truth about ballots being mailed to Californians, the news media decided to pull a fast one and claim he's also wrong about mail-order voter fraud.

Snopes rated the claim "mostly false" and PolitiFact claimed President Trump's statements were "False." But, unfortunately for this country (and for the propaganda factories we call "fact checkers")... voter fraud is not only very real, but also very rampant.

Leading the "voter fraud is a myth" argument to blind people from reality, we have Snopes claiming "All types of voter fraud in U.S. elections is minuscule in comparison to the number of ballots cast, according to elections experts." But this is patently and completely false.

First off, there is historical precedent that thousands of people rise from the dead to vote Democrat in Chicago each election. In Chicago, voter fraud is not only rampant, but it is even called "legendary," as if it is some sort of crowing achievement.

Secondly, Judicial Watch found that, in many LARGE districts in California (Such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz), there were more voters than members of the eligible voting population. In Los Angeles that number stood at 112% of voters vs. the population and San Francisco stood at 114%. Further, the county of Santa Cruz had 109% of voters vs. the population. These numbers certainly DO contribute to thousands upon thousands of additional voters than actually could be eligible to vote.

Thirdly, and this is to Snopes' COMPLETE DESECRATION, Election Experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology specifically stated that mail-order fraud is more likely than in-person voter fraud.

But the problem for Snopes, et. al. doesn't end there. If you follow news reports, there are regular cases of voter fraud and mail-order fraud that never even make it to the front page, even though they are reported on quite regularly. Here are a sample of them, most of these reports being from this year:

AP: Feds: West Virginia mail carrier altered ballot requests

WRAL: Key figure in 9th District absentee ballot scheme charged with Social Security fraud
for some context on this one, read The Charlotte Observer's article on the entire voter fraud scheme: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article224173095.html

The Washington Times: Postal worker charged with mail-in voting fraud

The Washington Times: Democratic clerk charged with altering nearly 200 midterm elections ballots

Washington Post: Unexpected outcome in Wisconsin: Tens of thousands of ballots that arrived after Election Day were counted, thanks to court decisions

The New York Times: Take It From Me, Voter Fraud Is Part of the G.O.P. Playbook

The Philadelphia Inquirer: Election fraud case sparks renewed accusations about ballot security in Philadelphia

MacIver Institute: State Suspects Voter Fraud Committed in 19 Wisconsin Counties

NBC New York: Hundreds of Mail-In Votes Already Set Aside Due to Voter Fraud Claims in Paterson

Fox News: Ex-Nevada AG describes ballots 'piled up in apartments and trash cans and in hallways' due to mail-in voting

And this is just a SELECTION of some of the cases and instances out there. The Heritage Foundation has over 1200 cases of PROVEN voter fraud in their database:

Let's face it, voter fraud is rampant. It's not isolated to either party, as the record shows, and it isn't helpful to us as a society. The sooner we embrace the problem and talk about it, the sooner we can elect representatives or donate to causes that work to fight it. And that means better, freer elections for all.
