A James Madison student was sentenced to 100 days in prison for fraudulently registering names of dead people to vote. The ruling was handed down by the U.S. District Court in the Western District of Virginia. His name was Andrew J. Spiels and he worked for an organization with democratic affiliations. United States Attorney Rick A. Mountcastle noted the organization he worked with was Harrisonburg Votes.
A U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesperson told CBS6,
“In July 2016 Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and reported to Democratic Campaign headquarters in Harrisonburg. In August 2016, Spieles was directed to combine his registration numbers with those of another individual because their respective territories overlapped. After filling out a registration form for a voter, Spieles entered the information into a computer system used by the Virginia Democratic Party to track information such as name, age, address and political affiliation. Every Thursday an employee/volunteer hand-delivered the paper copies of the registration forms to the Registrar’s Office in Harrisonburg.”
The perpetrator was caught because a staff member in the registrars office recognized one of the names as the father of a county judge that had recently died. Thus, he knew it was fraudulent. When they went digging further they found further instances of fraudulence.
The spokesperson continued on by saying,
“Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers. The Registrar’s Office learned that the individuals named in these forms had not in fact submitted the new voter registrations. The assistant registrar’s personal knowledge of the names of some of the individuals named in the falsified documents facilitated the detection of the crime. Spieles admitted that he created all 18 fraudulent forms himself and that no one else participated in the crime.”
He admitted he got all the private information of these people from walk sheets he got from the Democratic Party in Virginia. From those sheets he falsified the birth dates to make it more innocuous as well as created false social security numbers.
This is exactly why the White House and the administration have indicated they want to investigate widespread voter fraud. In May he even released a statement saying the following about the issue,
“The commission will review policies and practices that enhance or undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of federal elections, including improper registrations, improper voting, fraudulent registrations, fraudulent voting and voting suppression.”
The following was reported about the possible commission by the National Review,
“The Commission will be tasked with reviewing both the alleged widespread voter fraud, and voter suppression, in the U.S.’s electoral system. A White House official told ABC News that by investigating voter suppression as well, it would encourage Democrats to join the effort.
Members of the Commission will begin their investigation this summer. They will have until 2018 to “review policies and practices that enhance or undermine the American people’s confidence in the integrity of Federal elections, including improper registrations, improper voting, fraudulent registrations, fraudulent voting, and voter suppression.
Trump has yet to finalize the Commission’s list of no more than 15 members, but those under consideration are Ohio’s former secretary of state Ken Blackwell (Rep.), Maine’s secretary of state Matthew Dunlap (Dem.), New Hampshire’s secretary of state Bill Gardner (Dem.), Indiana’s secretary of state Connie Lawson (Rep.), and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s commissioner Christy McCormick.”
Voter fraud is an issue. And while Democrats deny it that doesn’t change the fact that it is. Democrats blame Republicans for gerrymandering when in fact they are literally creating fake and deceased people in order to get fraudulent votes to win elections. If you have to make up dead people so that you can get more votes perhaps you should reevaluate what you do for a living. Clearly you don’t have a worthy enough of a message.
Trump has already fulfilled his promise to combat sanctuary cities and defund them as well as delve deeply into immigration reform. We have no doubt he will continue to uphold his campaign promises. One of which was instigating voter fraud investigations during the election. A leopard cant change their spots and considering he has upheld promises in the past I have no doubt the same will come of this.
