Early voting has begun for midterm 2014 elections, and reports of Democrat voter fraud have come in from Arizona, Maryland and Illinois. The Arizona incident featured a liberal activist caught on video stuffing hundreds of ballots into a ballot box. In Maryland and Illinois, voting machines were switching votes from Republican to Democrat, raising suspicions of fraud being the root of the so-called malfunction.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Greenpeace terminated the contract of a Colorado-based worker who was caught on video seemingly condoning fraud in the state’s new vote-by-mail process. The undercover video was taken by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas. O’Keefe also recorded a worker for another liberal group on the video seems to encourage O’Keefe to commit fraud with unused ballots (using words like “cool” and “awesome”), while an operative from a different group apparently suggests that voting in two states might be worth a try.
The November 4 election day is quickly rounding the corner, and there has already been a number of reports of voter fraud taking place that may affect the 2014 election results. In Arizona, a liberal activist was caught on video stuffing hundreds of ballots into the ballot and was then seen hiding an unsealed ballot in his shorts before he left the building, according to Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman A.J. LaFaro.
The video shows an unidentified man wearing a “Citizens for a Better Arizona” t-shirt, a left-wing activist group, entering the building while voting attendants were at lunch and begins stuffing the ballot box. The video only surfaced because A.J. LaFaro happened to be sitting in a cubicle across from the ballot box. When the man spotted LaFaro watching, he became hostile, reported the Arizona Daily Independent.
When A.J. LaFaro pointed out there was unsealed ballot, the man responded, “It’s none of your business. What’s your name?” LaFaro said that after he explained who he was, the man vulgarly replied, “Go f**k yourself!”
LaFaro recounts the man then slipped behind the table to move out of view of the camera to hide the unsealed ballot in his shorts. Then, as seen on the video, the man exited the building to only return a short time later to enter another ballot. LaFaro believes that last ballot was the same one he snuck out of the building with.
A.J. LaFaro supported a voting law regarding activists groups within the last year. The law was passed then turned over by opposing Democrats. LaFaro thinks it should be illegal for groups to collect ballots.
“I believe it’s inconceivable, unacceptable and should be illegal for groups to collect hundreds, if not thousands of voter’s ballots and return them to the elections offices or polling locations. And let’s not forget the ‘ballot parties’ that occur where people gather en masse and give their unvoted ballots to operatives of organizations like Citizens for a Better Arizona so they can not only collect them but vote them illegally. America used to be a nation of laws where one person had one vote. I’m sad to say not anymore.”
In Maryland and Illinois, voting machines have been the culprits of switching the 2014 election results. A number of voting machines were dubiously switching votes cast for Republican candidates to the Democratic opponents, reported Newsmax.
Both Maryland and Illinois election officials claimed it as a “calibration error”, but technology experts are leery of their response.
Early Maryland voters in multiple locations were casting their votes for the midterm 2014 election, but when they pressed the touch screen in favor of Republican candidates, the vote appeared in the Democratic candidates box. A voter from Frederick explained his experience.
“When I first selected my candidate on the electronic machine, it would not put the ‘x’ on the candidate I chose — a Republican — but it would put the ‘x’ on the Democrat candidate above it. This happened multiple times with multiple selections. Every time my choice flipped from Republican to Democrat.”
Last week, reports Newsmax, this was also happening in Illinois when early voting began.
GOP state House candidate Jim Moynihan experience the problem first hand.
“I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast a vote for my opponent. You could imagine my surprise as the same thing happened with a number of races when I tried to vote for a Republican and the machine registered a vote for a Democrat.”
In both states, election officials described the problem as “calibration error.” But a software developer and expert on touch screens used by U.S. intelligence agencies told Newsmax that the explanation was bogus.
“It’s a software issue, and it’s incredibly suspicious that a bug like that could slip through accidentally. It defies belief,” said Tony Heller, an expert on this type of technology. Heller said any expert in the technology could figure out within minutes whether the problem whether accidental or deliberate.
While some reports are real, last week Megyn Kelly of Fox News reported a fake voting scandal.
The Examiner reported Kelly claimed that the law “literally allows residents to print ballots from their home computers, then encourages them to turn ballots over to ‘collectors.'” Unfortunately for Kelly, the report was was not true and called out by Rachel Maddow on MSNBC.
The topic of voter fraud has become a hot topic, each party taking opposing sides. And another report by The Inquisitr finds that illegal voting could make the difference in the 2014 election results, determining whether a candidate wins or loses. Shouldn’t more voters be concerned?
