We’ve all heard about a billion times how there is no such thing as vote fraud, other than Trump and Putin conspiring to steal the 2016 election and the GOP disenfranchising voters to steal 2018 races in GA and FL. We know it’s a bunch of BS – Democrats do everything they can to enable vote fraud and at the same time cover it up by trying to kill all attempts to verify voter IDs.

In addition to the many reports from Florida recently, I reported on a case in Texas in my last water cooler that resulted in nine arrests in the blue Rio Grande Valley. Now here is a case from Los Angeles that also resulted in nine people being charged. This was during the 2016 election. I’m going to take a swag that the people involved were not Russian operatives helping Trump.

Using cash and cigarettes as lures, the defendants approached homeless people on skid row and asked them to forge signatures on state ballot measure petitions and voter registration forms.

Of course the LA elections people will say the system worked and that no vote fraud actually occurred, so you can’t call this vote fraud.

L.A. County elections chief Dean Logan previously said it was unlikely the forgeries eluded his staff, who manually compare petition signatures with those on registration forms.

The lengths liberals go to deny the obvious is laughable. A Wisconsin paper which happens to be part of the USA Today empire reported that there were about 200 cases of vote fraud in WI in about 18 months. But of course according to them these don’t count as vote fraud because they were not organized vote fraud – just 200 lone wolves I guess.

Meanwhile back in Florida, the state Democratic Party is under investigation. At least we know the backdating of ballots was all completely innocent.

Democratic Strategist Steve Schale says it was likely just a mix up.

“Some 23-year-old staffer probably got two dates mixed up,” said Schale.

But here’s a bigger laugh. I’ll take another swag here and say they will find there was absolutely nothing organized or sinister.

The Florida Democratic Party says it’s hired its own independent investigator to look into the case.

It says it plans to release any findings once the investigation is complete.
