Voter Fraud in Colorado! Time for Nationwide Voter ID Laws?

One local news outlet in Colorado did some digging, and found something quite disturbing.   Local officials acknowledged “very serious” voter fraud after learning of votes cast in multiple elections under the names of recently-deceased residents.   A local media outlet uncovered the fraud by comparing voting history databases in the state with federal government death records. “Somebody was able to cast a vote that was not their’s to cast,” El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman told CBS4 while discussing what he called a “very serious” pattern of people mailing in ballots on behalf of the dead.   It’s not clear how many fraudulent ballots have been submitted in recent years. CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations.   “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams. Gee…do you really think so?

CBS4 reported that it “found multiple cases” of dead people voting around the state, revelations that have provoked state criminal investigations. The Milwaukee Police Department reported in 2008 that there was an “illegal organized attempt to influence the outcome of [the 2004] election in the state of Wisconsin.” There were more votes counted than the number of voters who officially cast ballots, according to the report — about 5,000 more, in a presidential battleground decided by 12,000 votes.   Colorado has been a key swing state in recent presidential elections after flip-flopping back and forth between support for Democratic and Republican candidates. 

The margin of victory has often been very tight in Colorado which is what makes the discovery of voter fraud there so concerning.  An investigation by CBS Denver found that dozens of deceased Colorado citizens continued voting multiple years after their death…even though Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams assured CBS that “it is impossible to vote from the grave legally.” 

While we’re disturbed by the voter fraud in Colorado, we’re so glad that the legality of the issue could be cleared up so easily.   According to CBS, one of the most glaring cases of voter fraud they found was of Sara Sosa who lived in Colorado Springs. Sosa died on Oct. 14, 2009 but CBS found that she continued to cast her ballot in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.  Likewise, her husband, Miguel, died on Sept. 26, 2008 but voted later in 2009.

Colorado’s Secretary of State confirmed the cases of voter fraud discovered by CBS.   Remember when Hillary and Co. gave us horror stories about how Russians were going to corrupt the vote? What if that’s just a smokescreen to put the numbers in doubt… at the Republicans’ expense?   These degrade the value, or negate the value of their own single vote.    Of course Colorado isn’t the only place where voter fraud occurs.  Project Veritas recently recorded videos in Michigan showing just how easy it is to vote as someone else.  In the following video, the Project Veritas(PV) journalist claims she is Jocelyn Benson, the Dean of Wayne State University Law School, but that she lost her ID.  The “Poll Supervisor” is quick to reassure Mrs. Benson that as long as she signs the affidavit on the back of the ballot she is free to vote.  When the journalist pushes back and insists that she feels an obligation to prove her identity the Poll Supervisor reassures her that “nobody can vote twice” because if the real Jocelyn Benson subsequently comes in she won’t be able to vote “because you already voted.”  Perfect logic if we understand it correctly. 

So just to clarify, each registered voter only gets one ballot. This seems reasonable but it doesn’t necessarily matter so much who casts that ballot…wait, what?  Listen to the   conversation and decide for yourself.

PV Journalist:  “I feel like I should prove that I am who I am.”

Poll Supervisor:  “Your word is your proof is right here.”

PV Journalist:  “And that’s fine?”

Poll Supervisor:  “Yup.  Because if somebody else comes in and says that they’re you, they can’t because you already voted.  So, you can’t vote twice, nobody can vote twice.  So once you vote, I don’t care who you are.”

PV Journalist:  “You guys are fine with me just voting.”

Poll Supervisor:  “Yup I’m fine.  You’re not the first one that’s left your ID at home.”

Parting shot: All signs point to a very interesting 2016 election.  Which candidate do you think appeals to dead voters the most?   How is it that with all the great technology that this country possesses, no one can make a voting machine that cannot be hacked?   My guess is that the people that make the voting machines may also be the hackers…and that was rumored to be the case in the 2012 election, where Romney had it locked up…and lost.

Mickey Mouse is a popular voter, as is Donald Duck, and in In a 1960 Georgia congressional race, Willie B., a gorilla, received 390 votes.   1968 saw Pigasus J. Pig as a voter, and in 1980 Mary Tyler Moore, Thomas Jefferson, Mayor Ed Koch, Mickey Mouse, and Miss Piggy were in the ballot boxes.   There must be a lot of zombies walking around, headed to the polls.  You’ll never convince me that voter fraud, and massive voter fraud, doesn’t exist.
