Heres Even More Evidence Trump Is Lying About Massive Voter Fraud

Trump is a liar and his tales about voter fraud have been proven false http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-voter-fraud_us_590cc4e8e4b0d5d9049c4155?section=us_politics§ion=us_politics

A new survey of local election officials finds that it was extremely rare for non-citizens to vote in the 2016 election, casting even more doubt on President Donald Trump’s unfounded claim that millions of people cast illegal ballots last year.

Researchers from the Brennan Center for Justice interviewed local election officials in 42 jurisdictions across 12 states and found there’d been about 30 instances of suspected non-citizens voting. That’s out of 23.5 million ballots cast. The questionable votes accounted for just 0.0001 percent of the total number of votes in those jurisdictions.

The report focuses on counties where there are more than 100,000 adult non-citizens, as well as diverse areas with large populations in California, Virginia and New Hampshire, all states that Trump singled out for voter fraud.

The results are consistent with post-election audits that have shown voter fraud and instances of non-citizen voting to be vanishingly rare. In North Carolina, where 4.8 million ballots were cast, officials found just 41 suspected cases of non-citizens voting. Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske (R) has said she believes up to 21 non-citizens could have voted for president in the state, where there are more than 1.4 million active voters. In Ohio, Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) said that 82 non-citizens voted “in at least one election” (he did not say when).

Trump has said he believes between 3 and 5 million people voted illegally in the 2016 election. He has not provided any evidence for this claim, and has pledged a national probe into voter fraud. Civil rights groups are also suing Kansas over a law that requires people to prove they are U.S. citizens in order to vote.

When non-citizens do vote, it is often out of confusion or a failure to understand voting procedures, the Brennan Center report notes. Federal law requires the Department of Motor Vehicles to allow people to register to vote, and a non-citizen might unintentionally get added to the voter rolls if they don’t fully understand all the forms they’re filling out. In other cases, a canvasser might misinform a non-citizen of the law and tell them they are eligible to vote.

2. New Survey of Local Election Officials Debunks Trumps Claims that Millions Improperly Voted in 2016

Here is more evidence of trump lies http://www.brennancenter.org/press-release/new-survey-local-election-officials-debunks-trump%E2%80%99s-claims-millions-improperly-voted

Noncitizen voting in the 2016 election was exceedingly rare, according to a new analysis of information from local election administrators by the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law. Its findings counter claims from President Trump that 3-5 million people voted illegally in November.

To produce this new resource, researchers conducted standardized, in-depth interviews with election officials in 42 jurisdictions across the country, including administrators in eight of the 10 jurisdictions with the largest populations of noncitizens. Of 23.5 million votes tabulated in the areas surveyed, election officials referred an estimated 30 incidents of suspected noncitizen voting for further investigation or prosecution, representing 0.0001 percent of the votes cast. Other findings of Noncitizen Voting: The Missing Millions include:

Forty jurisdictions — all but two of the 42 studied — reported no known incidents of noncitizen voting in 2016. All of the officials spoken with said that the incidence of noncitizen voting in prior years was not significantly greater than in 2016.

In the 10 counties with the largest populations of noncitizens in 2016, only one reported any instances of noncitizen voting, consisting of fewer than 10 votes. New York City, home to two of the counties, refused to participate in the study.

In California, Virginia and New Hampshire — the states where Trump claimed the problem of noncitizen voting was especially acute — no official we spoke with identified any incidents of noncitizen voting in 2016.
“President Trump has said repeatedly that millions of people voted illegally in 2016, but our interviews with local election administrators made clear that rampant noncitizen voting simply did not occur,” said Douglas Keith, the counsel and Katz Fellow in the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program and co-author of the analysis. “Any claims to the contrary make their job harder and distract from progress toward needed improvements like automatic voter registration.”

“Our team made a specific point of interviewing election officials in areas with high populations of noncitizens,” said Christopher Famighetti, policy and research analyst in the Brennan Center’s Democracy Program and co-author of the analysis. “They would have been the first to notice improper voting of any kind, and a vast majority of them didn’t see it at all. Those that did report suspected incidents of noncitizen voting had a handful, amounting to an insignificant fraction of the total votes.”

7. Really .."and found..... been about 30 instances of suspected non-citizens voting."

That's 30 too many....right LMPC?

"When non-citizens do vote, it is often out of confusion or a failure to understand voting procedures,.."
HOW can that be confusion or failure to understand US voting laws....If you aren't a citizen...you don't get to vote, and if you can't understand that basic law you can NEVER be a citizen......UNLESS..someone like you thinks they should be able to vote.....maybe suggests they try....Letmypeoplevote...when, if you were honest in your name, it would be Leteveryonevote......right ?

"In North Carolina, ... officials found just 41 suspected cases of non-citizens voting"
" Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske (R) has said she believes up to 21 non-citizens could have voted for president..."
"In Ohio, Secretary of State Jon Husted (R) said that 82 non-citizens voted “in at least one election” (he did not say when)."
Who told any non citizen they could vote for as much as head dog catcher?

We know the crew that are telling them...........

12. Of course it is too many!

As are cases of absentee ballot fraud, mostly committed by U.S. citizens, and often by Republicans, like the woman who filled in the ballot for her mother who had just died. (I think that was in North Carolina.)

Unacceptable. But of course, while the authorities deal with such offenses, no one is raising a holy stink about it, it is regarded as just one of many things that go on, not some sort of crisis that we all need to be hysterical about.

9. While the Left Ignores Voter Fraud, More Evidence Mounts to Prove Them Wrong

The 2016 elections have passed, but courts still have plenty of work to do sorting out cases of voter fraud throughout the country.

Convictions have continued to roll in this spring, and The Heritage Foundation’s voter fraud database is growing longer by the day.

This week, we are adding 19 convictions, including cases from Texas, Colorado, and Illinois. These are just the latest convictions. Yet despite the overwhelming evidence, the left prefers to bury its head in the sand and refuses to acknowledge the reality of Voter fraud.

Take one example from Kansas. When Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach claimed his first conviction in a voter fraud case against a non-U.S. citizen, opponents of the conviction had no interest in dealing with the facts.

10. A bit about the Brennan Center

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brennan_Center_for_Justice

The Brennan Center for Justice at New York University Law School is a nonpartisan, left-leaning law and public policy institute. The Brennan Center advocates for a number of progressive public policy positions, including raising the minimum wage, opposing voter ID laws, and calling for public funding of elections. The organization opposed the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, which held that the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent political expenditures by nonprofits.

The Center's stated mission is to "work to hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all." The organization's president is Michael Waldman, former director of speechwriting for President Bill Clinton.

The Brennan Center for Justice was founded in 1995 by the family and former law clerks of Supreme Court Justice William J. Brennan, whom the Washington Post called "the progressive voice of the modern court."Justice Brennan’s idea of a living constitution figures largely into the center’s work.

The Brennan Center is involved in issues such as opposing voter ID laws that it believes unduly restrict voter registration, and other barriers to registration and voting; and advocating for redistricting reform and campaign finance reform.The organization is part think tank, part public interest law firm, and part advocacy group.George Soros is a major donor to the Brennan Center.

If you go to their site they actually claim to be non partisan.

Hope the IRS takes a look as this is as big an abuse of a tax exempt status as one can find.
