Massive Non-Citizen Voting in Maryland. Wouldn't This Make a Good Campaign Issue for the GOP?
Print Friendly and PDF
The usual suspects go ballistic when a state tries to require voter ID to register and vote, claiming that vote fraud, including non-citizen voting, is not a problem. Yet evidence is mounting that there is a significant problem with non-citizen voting. Many of our states' voter registration systems are not secure, and that's just how some people like them. I've long suggested the adoption of a Mexican-style voter registration system.

Why can't the GOP take up this issue and start pounding on it in these last few days of the midterm elections? Oh, I forgot, that would involve defending U.S. sovereignty and the historic American nation, wouldn't it? Besides, somebody somewhere might call Republicans "racist", and we can't have that now, can we? As for the Republican National Committee, it signed an agreement back in 1982 not to conduct "ballot security activities" in minority areas. Incredible, isn't it, and that was during the Reagan Era!

As for non-citizen voting, here is evidence from just one state:

Massive Non-Citizen Voting Uncovered in Maryland Bryan Preston, PJ Media Tatler, October 29, 2014

An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years.

The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.

It is a federal crime to cast votes if you are not legally eligible to vote. Non-citizens, whether in the country legally or not, are prohibited from voting in most local and all state and federal elections. Yet the VVA investigation found that hundreds of non-citizens have been voting in Frederick County, Maryland. One in seven Maryland residents are non-U.S. citizens.

“The lawsuit is the equivalent of the lookout spotting the iceberg ahead of the Titanic,” state Del. Pat McDonough told the Tatler. He added that the group’s investigation found a voter fraud “smoking gun.”

Maryland state law makes it easier for non-citizens, both those present legally and those in the country against the law, to vote. Maryland issues drivers licenses to legal and illegal aliens. Driver’s licenses in turn make it easier under the Motor Voter law to register to vote. Maryland also offers copious taxpayer-funded social programs to non-citizens in the state.

The group filed suit in Baltimore’s U.S. District Court on Friday. They are suing the Frederick County Board of Elections and the Maryland State Board of Elections.

Del. Pat McDonough (R-Baltimore and Harford Counties) detailed the alleged fraud in a Maryland press conference today. He is calling for a special state prosecutor because the fraud may be taking place statewide, with significant impact on Maryland elections. Maryland currently holds 10 electoral votes in presidential elections. McDonough is also proposing legislation including voter ID to close the loopholes that he says non-citizens are using to cast votes. [More]
