Voter Fraud

                The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday concerns voter fraud. Conservatives have been claiming voter fraud for some time, and progressives have been denying it even though voter fraud cases are being put on record.

                Peter Tapsak and Jason Snead explain, “Progressives insist that voter fraud is a myth, a charade meant to justify repressive voting laws. The facts, however, tell a different story: Voter fraud is real, and if we ignore it, we leave our ballot boxes open to fraudsters who would rather steal elections than risk losing in a fair and open contest.”

                In their article titled “Voter Fraud Is Real. Here Are 4 More Cases,” Tapsak and Snead discuss how “courts struck down election integrity laws in Kansas, North Carolina, North Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin” but left “some provisions of Texas’ challenged election laws” in effect. A “stay has been entered against the order striking down Wisconsin’s law.”

                Tapsak and Snead then discuss four new fraud cases to put on the record. They took place in Kentucky, Texas, Iowa, and Wisconsin. The charges include vote buying, identity theft, fraud, “assisting” absentee voters, convicted felon voting, and 13 counts for duplicate voting.

                The article at The Daily Signal concludes: “As the old adage goes, we are entitled to our own opinions, but not to our own facts. These cases – along with the hundreds of other convictions Heritage has documented – are the inconvenient facts many on the left choose simply to ignore. Reasonable Americans should not follow their lead.
                “Elections – our most direct means of political participation – should be fair and untainted by fraudsters. Every time a vote is cast illegally, it nullifies a legitimate vote and undermines the entire system by eroding public trust in our political institutions. It is imperative that this not be allowed to happen.”

                We must believe that voter fraud takes place and demand fair and honest elections!
