Last minute insertions into the Senate’s Coronavirus relief bill by House Democrats would impose permanent changes to election protocols that will encourage and protect vote fraud. At ACRU, we think it is critically important for all our friends and supporters to understand the seriousness of what is at stake should Nancy Pelosi’s provisions pass Congress.
In 2018, ACRU successfully sued Starr County, TX for voting irregularities. The County settled, agreeing to fix their corrupt system. Apparently they have not honored settlement terms, or cleaned up their act, as last week Republican primary voters were shooed away from voting by election officials or told to "just vote for a Democrat." News flash to Starr County from ACRU: we'll be back.
Does 9th Circuit not know what's in the Constitution, or just ignores it? Either way, now liberal billionaires at Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc. have been given a green light to censor anything (conservative) they find unhelpful. Like individual liberty, a secure border, conservative thought; that kind of thing. The 9th says these public forums are "private." Does the 9th Circuit squint when it sees daylight after spending so much time in the pockets of mega wealthy progressives?
People Not Politicians is a progressive group trying circumvent Constitutional redistricting power that resides in the majority party of a state (as upheld by SCOTUS.) But never mind the “Supremes,” PNP is pushing state lawsuits to create an “independent” (ha!) citizen’s commission to determine redistricting. Their first lawsuit was shot down by the Oklahoma Supreme Court, so they now going for round two. Just the beginning of this movement, so stay tuned.
Please share this article with the next liberal who tells you there is no voter fraud, but it’s Republicans doing it. A Democratic city clerk in Southfield, Michigan was honored in 2019 by the Michigan State Democratic party with the Levin/Dingell Award. Moving on to 2020, she was arrested and charge with multiple felonies for allegedly altering absentee ballots. Election integrity groups are now calling for a review of all elections she may or may not have fudged.
In 2016, ACRU successfully sued Starr County, Texas for not maintaining voter rolls. It in settlement with ACRU, the county agreed to implement critical action items to remove ineligible voters from its lists. Now, once again, “politiqueras” — campaign activists paid to collect mail-in ballots from people and “encourage” them to vote a certain way—are showing up. Since our lawsuit, Starr County officials are now diligently watching for fraud, and recently found some. They are getting tips and prosecuting offenders. Thumbs up to Starr County.
States with automatic voter registration systems (18 + DC) keep registering inedible voters on a daily basis, or so it seems. They call it an “accident” or a "glitch.” Last year Illinois registered 570 individuals—foreign nationals applying for drivers licenses—to vote. These 570 people even checked “no” on the citizen box. Now Illinois has admitted another problem—it’s registering 16 year old new drivers to vote. We suggest it might want to add an “I’m just a kid box.” Or event better, stop connecting getting an ID with getting to vote.
Vote counting in the Iowa Democrat caucus was a mess. The app built by a company aptly called “Shadow,” created results that were delayed, partially released, partially reversed, and just an epic fail. Shadow is a company created by former Hillary Clinton staffers. Caucus officials are also now refusing to correct errors on worksheets. Lesson? 1. Stay away from vote counting apps created by political operatives. 2. Phone-based voting has the potential to mess up a lot more than one primary.
“Scientific poll” is often an oxymoron for a biased discipline, but trends matter. When a recent Rasmussen poll asked “are American elections fair,” 50% of respondents said yes, down from 57% in 2012. Currently, 72% of Republicans and independents think elections are fair, but only 32% of Democrats. Conclusion? The endless barrage of misinformation by liberals that “there is no voter fraud except when conservatives suppress the vote” is, sadly, having an impact on Democrat voters.
ACRU Policy Board Member and Heritage Foundation Legal Fellow Hans von Spakovsky takes aim at Congressional Democrat’s latest attack on voting integrity, H.R. 4, which Hans calls, “The Election Fraud Advancement Act.” This bill would “have DC take over state and local elections and stop reforms to improve security of the voting process.” The bill uses false claims of “racism” to thwart a SCOTUS decision and limit the rights of state and local citizens. It’s awful. Call your Congressman.
