Wednesday, September 05, 2018

Federal authorities announced Friday that 19 illegal immigrants in North Carolina illegally voted during the 2016 election. A news release from United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina also said several of those charged voted in more than one election. The indictments were made by a federal grand jury in Wilmington and included illegal voting in Wake, Johnston, Cumberland and Wilson counties.

They told you it was rare. It is.

Trump has already laid the groundwork to disavow the November elections when they go against him.

Going to expect your help then.

What authority do you think the President has over elections which would enable his disavowing it have any bearing?

No, moron.

You were told it wasn't a widespread problem worth disenfranchising millions of voters over.

Just to put it all in perspective with numbers, 4,741,564 people voted in North Carolina in the 2016 election. 19 were illegal. That's 0.000401% of the votes that were invalid. To compare this to,say, social security fraud, that's like spending $1,000,812,000,000 ($1 Trillion in FY17 outlays) and discovering just over $4M in fraudulent payments. Not great to be sure, but no reason to make structural changes to social security.

I'm all for election integrity, but massively overhauling our election rules and spending a ton of money to prevent 0.0004% fraud seems silly.

One of the most Newsworthy posts in recent memory.

Thanks, and kudos, bartimus!

@#1 ... But liberals told us this never happens. ...

Why is it that so many on the right (from Pres Trump on downward) have to lie in order to promote their agenda?

Donald Trump lies, steals, and cheats. He is not interested in democracy because democracy is not in his interest.

A Democratic House in November will have his back against a wall.

Sick of people like you refusing to see what this man is. Then again, as was said, you're agenda is not a domestic one.

"Then again, as was said, your agenda is not a domestic one"

As I recall, you're one of those who said it was justified for Trump to conspire with Russians to keep Democrats out of office.

If he loses the electoral college, then sure..

Assuming they all voted for clinton, this almost makes up for all the double-ballots cast by trump supporters. Election fraud; a fringe problem on the left, a defining feature of the right.

I don't wanna go pilling a Northguy here but if you clowns vote this orangutan in again, I'm going to have to reassess my entire thoughts on humanity.

Until proof surfaces in a court of law I'll wait before I concern myself with any illegals voting, this could easily be fake news created to give the impression of voter fraud committed by illegals that was actually committed by people setting them up because I am sure illegal aliens would probably confess to just about anything if they were frightened enough.

Why 19? That's a spooky coincidence. Maybe Louis F. was on to something. Or on something. Or both.

You recall incorrectly. I've never said or felt it would be justified had Trump conspired with Russians on anything.
