When Democrats Say There’s No Voter Fraud, They’re Lying

There’s an risible liberal talking point that continues to rear its ugly head regarding ACORN and the Democratic Party’s demonstrated record of voting fraud:

“That’s not voting fraud, that’s voter registration fraud.”

Before we address the talking point proper (which seems to have originated at the liberally biased “fact checking” site FactChek.org), let us note that:

  1. Voter registration is merely a specific type of voter fraud, not something entirely different.
  2. Both kinds are deeply destructive of the “one man, one vote” principles of representative democracy.
  3. The FBI places both registration and at-the-polls fraud in the same category of fraud.

So in summary, there is no legal distinction between “voting fraud” and “voter registration fraud.”

However, even when making that dubious distinction, there have been numerous, documented instances of Democrats and ACORN staffers (but I repeat myself) committing in-person voting fraud:

  • Take, for example, this case in Troy, New York:

    Four Democratic officials and political operatives have pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal an election in Troy, N.Y., FoxNews.com reports.

    The group forged signatures on applications for absentee ballots and on the ballots themselves in a 2009 primary of the Working Families Party, which was affiliated with now-defunct community group ACORN.

  • Or how about Massachussets Democrat State Rep. Stephen Smith (a member of the Joint Committee on Election Laws” who plead guilty to voter fraud and resigned after casting fraudulent absentee ballots “in multiple elections.”
  • Three Arkansas Democrats and a police officer pleaded guilty to…bribing voters for their absentee ballots for a local election in 2011.”
  • In Indiana, a “former state representative and longtime Jennings County Democratic Party worker received an 18-month sentence Wednesday for three felony convictions of voter fraud” for registering and voting the ballots of other people.
  • “A Milwaukee man pleaded guilty Monday to illegally voting five times last year in West Milwaukee, when in fact he did not have residency there.”
  • Here’s a Brownsville woman voting multiple times in the Democratic primary.
  • Here’s a Maryland woman who plead guilty to trying to cast the vote of her recently deceased mother.
  • So even by the standards of facetious distinctions between “voting fraud” and “voter registration fraud,” Democrats and ACORN have committed plenty of both.

    No wonder they oppose Voter ID…
