Who is and isn’t allowed to vote in our country? It’s a perennial question that’s an extremely valid one, as President Trump has claimed that the number of illegal aliens who voted in the 2016 election was in the millions.
The state of California alone, with its 39 million voters and 55 presidential electoral votes, has a great responsibility to make sure that its voter registration rolls are up-to-date and accurate, and yet, Democratic state leadership there has consistently allowed numerous violators of voting qualification rules to take part in state and federal elections.
Issues such as dead people voting (particularly a problem in ex-President Obama’s home state of Illinois) and people from out of state being bussed in to vote in places where they’re not registered (which conservatives may recall was organized in 2016 by Democratic political consultants Bob Creamer and Scott Foval as was exposed in filmmaker James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas videos) are huge, huge problems that Democratic Party machine politics have permitted in numerous states.
As New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin reminds viewers in this pertinent clip, the presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 were decided by less than 100,000 votes, so this issue is very relevant, and it’s incumbent upon state governments to root out and prosecute abuses of this kind.
Predictably, however, Democratic leaders in more than a dozen states have refused to comply with President Trump’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which has been tasked with investigating this issue. The commission has asked states for data that’s publicly available, and yet, many states have refused to hand the information over based on supposed privacy concerns.
Watch as Fox’s Lou Dobbs discusses this maddening topic with both Goodwin and political consultant Ed Rollins in the first part of this associated segment.
