Are elections in the United States being stolen? Establishment Democrats say no, claiming publicly that vote fraud doesn’t exist — but what they say privately may be a different story. And a startling admission by NYC’s Democrat Commissioner of the Board of Elections Alan Schulkin is a case in point.
The revealing comments were caught on hidden camera by a Project Veritas (PR) undercover reporter at a United Federation of Teachers holiday party. As PV reports, “Yeah, they should ask for your ID. I think there is a lot of voter fraud," said Schulkin, who elaborated on the types of voter fraud that are taking place in New York. "You know, I don’t think it’s too much to ask somebody to show some kind of an ID…. Like I say, people don’t realize, certain neighborhoods in particular they bus people around to vote," said Schulkin. When asked about which type of neighborhoods the busing of voters takes place in, Schulkin confirmed that it was minority neighborhoods, adding, "They get busses and they move people around.” (Video below.)
I reported on the phenomenon of rampant vote fraud in minority neighborhoods in 2005 in “Democrats and Deep Vote fraud,” citing information given to me, exclusively, by a Washington, D.C. community leader. Among other issues, transiency is a problem in such neighborhoods, with people moving in and out of the areas frequently. This leaves many former residents on voter rolls — and their absence is well known to local, area-savvy political operatives called “block captains” or “apartment captains.” All these operatives need do then is vote, or have others vote, in these departed residents’ stead. (Note: I was still on the rolls when I left NYC more than 20 years ago. Anyone could have voted in my former precinct claiming to be “Selwyn Duke” and no one would have been any the wiser.)
Schulkin also “suggested that Mayor Bill de Blasio was to blame for a lot of the voter fraud taking place in New York City,” writes PV. The commissioner explained:
He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything. But, they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card. It’s absurd. There’s a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud.
This is why I’m getting more conservative as I get older.
The PV journalist also asked about absentee-ballot fraud, to which Schulkin replied, “Oh, there’s thousands of absentee ballots. I don’t know where they came from.”
Imagine that: He’s the election commissioner — and he has no idea where the absentee ballots come from.
Schulkin struck an even more politically incorrect note by mentioning Muslims. As Breitbart reported:
When the journalist suggests that in addition to voter ID fraud, people can also “cover their faces” when they vote, Schulkin agrees, saying, “Well the Muslims can do that too. You don’t know who they are.”
The PV journalist then tells Schulkin that Mayor Bill de Blasio “wants to let them [Muslims] in New York.”
“He doesn’t care, what does he care?” the commissioner replies. “Who’s going to pay for it? You are. Your tax money…. Your vote isn’t really counting because they can go in there with a burka on and you don’t know if they are a voter.”
“People think that it’s a liberal thing to do, but I take my vote seriously and I don’t want ten other people coming in negating my vote by voting for the other candidate when they’re not even registered voters,” Schulkin adds.
Not surprisingly, Schulkin’s truthful utterances didn’t sit well with other Democrats. NYC mayoral spokesman Austin Finan called the allegations “racist” and claimed that voter fraud “fear-mongering is a rightwing smokescreen designed to … disenfranchise the poor and people of color.” Interesting theory, especially since the White House itself touted a voter-ID program in 2013 — apparently funded with some U.S. tax dollars — in Kenya. It was not explained how requiring voter ID of poor American blacks is “racist” and suppressive of the vote, but requiring it of far poorer Kenyan blacks is praiseworthy.
Then there’s that other person laying down the “right-wing smokescreen,” Hillary Clinton. An e-mail recently released by WikiLeaks shows that her campaign believes that in 2008 Obama operatives “flooded the caucuses with ineligible voters.” And her “racist” self was apparently joined by the United Nations. Remember when the Democrats requested UN observers for our 2012 election because they allegedly feared Republican vote suppression? Well, those observers found no such thing, but they did say they were “shocked to see that the requirement of a photo ID isn’t a standard requirement at voting locations throughout the country,” reported Breitbart at the time. Note also that it is a standard requirement for most anything else, from receiving government benefits to entering buildings (e.g., the White House) to flying on airplanes.
And we should definitely listen to (the private) Schulkin, (the private) Clinton, and the UN because vote fraud abounds. As The Federalist writes, “In Colorado, multiple instances were found of dead people attempting to vote. Stunningly, ‘a woman named Sara Sosa who died in 2009 cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.’ In Virginia, it was found that nearly 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people. In Texas, authorities are investigating criminals who are using the technique of ‘vote harvesting’ to illegally procure votes for their candidates.” (Note: The Virginia fraud was discovered only accidentally, when a registrar’s office employee recognized an applicant’s name and knew the person had recently died.) Moreover, reports liberal NPR, “A new report by the Pew Center on the States finds that more than 1.8 million dead people are currently registered to vote. And 24 million registrations are either invalid or inaccurate.”
Our voting system is so anarchic it has inspired humor, with satire site the People’s Cube recently writing, “The latest Reuters polling of deceased voters in Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, Florida, and North Carolina show a definite trend favoring Hillary Clinton and Democrat congressional candidates, as the likely dead voters are registering Democrat in massive numbers. Dead Democrats, as well as Republicans who switched parties right after internment, are rising in droves chanting, ‘We Are Stronger Together.’” Yet this is no laughing matter. There is no voter-ID requirement in 19 states, including swing states Pennsylvania and North Carolina, while 15 others allow non-photo ID. And 21 percent of the 24 million invalid or inaccurate voter registrations could have accounted for Obama’s five million popular vote margin over Mitt Romney in 2012 — and far less than that would have been necessary to flip a number of crucial swing states.
Of course, it’s unlikely that vote fraud accounted for Obama’s entire margin of victory. It’s also definite we’ll never be sure about such things until we listen to certain Democrats, during their private moments, and stop running our elections as if we’re a banana republic.
