While Leftists practice denialism when it comes to rigging elections, the voter fraud database shows we are right to be concerned.
The Heritage Foundation has a new edition of their voter fraud database which contains over a thousand instances of confirmed voter fraud. The new edition has more classifications and many new cases. It shows that voter fraud needs to be seriously investigated. Yet Democrats, while insisting Russia rigged the election, also insist that voter fraud is not a problem.
Jason Snead wrote at the Daily Signal yesterday, “Voter Fraud Database Tops 1,000 Proven Cases.”
As the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity convenes its first meeting on Wednesday, the issue of voter fraud in American elections has become even more contentious and hyperbolic.
One of the left’s main arguments against reform is that voter fraud simply does not occur. How liberals arrive at this conclusion, we cannot say.
Time and again, studies and analyses point to one incontrovertible conclusion: that voter fraud is a real and pressing issue that deserves serious solutions, and The Heritage Foundation has the evidence to prove it.
On Thursday, The Heritage Foundation is releasing a new edition of its voter fraud database. Featuring well over 100 new cases, the database documents 1,071 instances of voter fraud spanning 47 states, including 938 criminal convictions.
This revamped edition of the database separates cases by type of disposition, allowing readers to easily distinguish not only what type of fraud occurred but the outcome of the case—criminal convictions, pre-trial diversion programs, and other types of adjudication used in various states and counties across the United States.
Snead lists three instances of fraud found in the voter fraud database. Then he returns to the topic of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
In the coming months, the commission—which includes Heritage’s own Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal fellow and one of the nation’s foremost election law experts—will seek to gather this information.
Unfortunately, so far, even innocuous requests for public voter records have been met with hyperbolic rhetoric and stonewalling in some states.
This begs the question, why? If fraud is as rare as liberals say, and if state protections against it are as robust as we are told, why withhold data that would prove these claims?
