Want just a sample of how easy it is to commit voter fraud in America? It’s so simple a domestic terrorist can do it.
In addition to the shooting he committed last friday, killing five in a mall in Burlington, Washington, you can add voter fraud to the list of Turkish immigrant Arcan Cetin’s offenses. As World Net Daily reported:
Election officials and Washington Secretary of State, Kim Wyman, have confirmed that Cetin was illegally registered to vote and voted in three elections in the state in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Cetin is classified as a permanent resident alien with a green card that allows him to work, but he is not a citizen with the right to vote.
Voters in Washington must attest to their American citizenship when registering to vote, but the state does not require proof. Election officials told KVI News the state’s election system operates on the honor system.
Yeah, they really want to base the integrity of the voting system on the honor system. Voter ID could solve the problem a bit easier, but liberals are quick to label voter fraud as “racist” without evidence. Their argument is that it’s minorities (particularly blacks) who are the least likely to own a photo ID, so voter ID laws would disenfranchise them. Liberals think so highly of blacks that they don’t believe they’re competent enough to go out and obtain a photo ID.
Well, turns out they are, because voter ID laws have had no effect on their turnout. Black voter turnout in 2012 exceeded the rate of white voter turnout, even in the states with the strictest voter ID laws. Clearly obtaining a photo ID wasn’t an issue.
That’s not the only case showing the “disenfranchisement” argument to be nonsense. Guy Benson and Mary Katherine Ham have an excellent section on voter ID laws in their book, “End of Discussion,” in which they note, “since Georgia’s ID measure went into effect, minority turnout markedly increased in successive election cycles — including the 2010 midterm elections.” They continue, quoting from an article in the Atlanta-Journal Constitution that found, “turnout among black and Hispanic voters increased from 2006-2010, dramatically outpacing population growth for those groups over the same period.”
That settles the case, doesn’t it? If even terrorists can vote fraudulently, you don’t want to think about who else can.
