Trump was right, there is illegal voting going on!

"Kansas freshman GOP Rep. Watkins charged with 3 felonies"

"The charges were filed in state district court in Shawnee County, which includes Watkins' hometown, the state capital of Topeka. District Attorney Mike Kagay announced them less than half an hour before the three GOP candidates' only scheduled debate began on three stations.

The UPS postal box was listed as Watkins' residential address for voter registration purposes when he cast a mail-in ballot for a local city council and school board election in November 2019. He later changed his residential listing.

The most serious criminal charge accuses Watkins of voting in the 2019 local city and school board election without being qualified. A first-time offender who's convicted could face a year in prison, though the more typical sentence would be two years' probation."

A former Judge of Elections has been convicted for his role in accepting bribes to cast fraudulent ballots and certifying false voting results during the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections in Philadelphia.

Domenick J. Demuro, 73, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty during a sealed proceeding on March 16, 2020, before U.S. District Judge Paul S. Diamond to conspiring to deprive persons of civil rights, and using interstate facilities in aid of bribery. The court unsealed the matter today.  Sentencing is scheduled for June 30, 2020.

During his guilty plea hearing, Demuro admitted that while serving as an elected municipal Judge of Elections, he accepted bribes in the form of money and other things of value in exchange for adding ballots to increase the vote totals for certain candidates on the voting machines in his jurisdiction and for certifying tallies of all the ballots, including the fraudulent ballots.  Demuro further admitted that a local political consultant gave him directions and paid him money to add votes for candidates supported by the consultant, including candidates for judicial office whose campaigns actually hired the consultant, and other candidates for various federal, state and local elective offices preferred by that consultant for a variety of reasons.  Demuro also admitted that the votes he added in exchange for payments by the political consultant increased the number of votes fraudulently recorded and tallied for the consultant’s clients and preferred candidates, thereby diluting the ballots cast by actual voters.

“This defendant abused his office by engaging in election fraud for profit,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  “Today’s conviction makes it clear that the Department of Justice will do all in its power to protect the integrity of elections and maintain public confidence in all levels of elected government.”

“Demuro fraudulently stuffed the ballot box by literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear. This is utterly reprehensible conduct. The charges announced today do not erase what he did, but they do ensure that he is held to account for those actions,” said U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.  “Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy.  If even one vote is fraudulently rung up, the integrity of that election is compromised. I want the public to know that this investigation is active and ongoing, and my Office is taking every possible step that we can to ensure the integrity of the upcoming primary and general elections in the nine counties of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.”

“Domenick Demuro put a thumb on the scale for certain candidates, in exchange for bribes,” said Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Driscoll of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division.  “As public trust in the electoral process is vital, the FBI’s message today is clear: election interference of any kind, by hostile foreign actors or dishonest local officials, won’t be tolerated. This is an active, ongoing investigation and we're asking anyone with information on election fraud to contact the FBI.”

Thomas Cooper entered the plea in federal court in Elkins to attempted election fraud and injury to the mail, U.S. Attorney Bill Powell said in a statement.

Cooper was charged in May after eight mail-in requests for absentee voter ballots had their party affiliations altered.

Cooper, 47, of Dry Fork, held a postal contract to pick up mail in the three towns in which the voters live and delivered the forms in April to the Pendleton County clerk, according to a federal affidavit.

An investigation by the secretary of state’s office found five of the ballot requests were changed from Democrat to Republican with a black ink pen, the affidavit said.

Bennie Cogar, an attorney general’s office investigator who conducted the probe on behalf of the secretary of state’s office, said in the affidavit that the Pendleton County clerk called some of the voters after receiving the requests because she knew they were not Republicans. The clerk then contacted the secretary of state’s office to report the alterations.

On the other three requests, the voters’ party was not changed. However, in addition to the “Republican” box originally checked in blue ink, the word “Republican” was later circled in black ink, the affidavit said.

New Jersey politics isn’t known for probity, but at least today it offers a useful warning to the nation. Four men are accused of committing fraud last month in the city of Paterson’s entirely vote-by-mail municipal elections. For one reason or another, county election officials have thrown out about 20% of the ballots submitted.

With nearly 150,000 people, Paterson is the state’s third-largest city. Its May 12 local elections were conducted wholly by mail. Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order in March saying that ballots would be sent to “all registered voters without the need for an application.”

By Election Day, claims of fraud were already in the local news. The Passaic County Board of Elections disqualified about 800 ballots that “were improperly bundled in mailboxes in apparent violation of state laws,” according to the Paterson Press. A group of about 360 ballots was placed into a mailbox in Haledon, one town over. The U.S. Postal Service alerted the county to the possibility of impropriety.


As the tabulating began, 1,214 ballots were tossed due to issues with the voter’s signature. Another 1,000 ballots were rejected because the “bearer” who purportedly dropped them off did not correctly fill out the envelope to say so. New Jersey law allows people to collect and deliver up to three ballots per election, but candidates are excluded from doing so.

Last week New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal announced charges against four men, including two winning city council candidates. All are accused of illegally collecting or possessing ballots. In one case, the ballot allegedly had not been voted or sealed but was “delivered to the Board of Elections in a sealed envelope.”

At least three dead people tried to vote, the Paterson Press reported. NBC New York found a Spanish-speaking resident who’s listed in county records as having voted. “We did not receive vote by mail ballots and thus we did not vote,” she said. “This is corruption. This is fraud.” Others say they mailed their votes, yet their names are shown on the list of ballots with “bearer” problems.

in related news, Trump refuses to say he will accept the results of the upcoming election.
like he has a choice.

This is the kind of idiotic farce that he has turned our country into.  I hope Biden gives him the biggest beating in any presidential election.

The Justice Department announced Thursday that federal prosecutors had charged a disgraced former Democratic congressman from Philadelphia with perpetrating a variety of voting-related crimes in recent years.

Michael “Ozzie” Myers was indicted earlier this week on charges of “conspiring to violate voting rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections, bribery of an election official, falsification of records, voting more than once in federal elections, and obstruction of justice,” according to a Justice Department statement.

Lots of corruption in NJ and PA, it seems.

So are we going to see more voter suppression tactics or more voter fraud this coming election?
