Liberals keep telling us all that we’re paranoid tinfoil hat wearers for being worried about voter fraud and pushing for voter ID laws in every state, but when you see folks who have been dead for decades suddenly appearing on the voter rolls and casting ballots for Democrats, well, it seems concern is a proper response.
And the fact that 1,000 people in Georgia are now facing up to 10 years in prison and a whopping $100,000 fine for double-voting isn’t really doing much to reduce the “paranoia.”
via Daily Wire:
As many as 1,000 Georgians voted twice in the state’s June 9 primary, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced on Tuesday, which is a felony that he vowed to prosecute.
“A double voter knows exactly what they’re doing, diluting the votes of each and every voter that follows the law,” Raffensperger said during a press conference at the state Capitol, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. “Those that make the choice to game the system are breaking the law. And as secretary of state, I will not tolerate it.” Double voting is punishable by one to 10 years in prison and a fine up to $100,000.
Raffensperger said the voters sent in absentee ballots, but then also voted in person. In a post-primary examination, the double votes were detected. About 150,000 people “who requested absentee ballots showed up at polling places on election day, often because they never received their absentee ballots in the mail or decided to instead vote in person,” the AJC reported. “Of those, 1,000 of those voters had returned their absentee ballots to county election offices, and poll workers also allowed them to vote in-person.”
Raffensperger later said that none of these double votes changed the outcome of any of the races.
This is precisely why conservatives are totally against the push for mail-in voting and want to continue voting in person. Just imagine how easy it would be to mess with the results with mail-in ballots. With the seething hatred of the left for Donald Trump, voter fraud is a reasonable concern and this proves it.
