President Trump has claimed, and not without reason, that voter fraud has been a factor in a number of American elections. He also believes that the amount of the voter fraud during his recent election may have been as much as 3 to 5 million illegally cast votes. True the Vote has supported him in this claim.
True the Vote (TTV) came into existence as part of the Tea Party wave. Founded by Catherine Engelbrecht, TTV is dedicated to exposing and preventing voter fraud. Per its website, TTV has indicated that it is ready to “lead a forensic audit” to expose election fraud and to offer appropriate remedies.
It is significant that the Obama administration considered True the Vote to be a danger to their intentions. Not only was the IRS used to attack the business owned by Mrs. Engelbrecht and her husband, but the FBI, ATF, and OSHA were employed as well. As a result of its successes, TTV was threatened with a Congressional Investigation by Congressman Elijah Cummings (D). In 2016, it won its appeal in a civil lawsuit against the IRS.
The mainstream news media has conveniently ignored the True the Vote activities and investigations, preferring instead the claim that there is no voter fraud. (In other words, the mainstream media prefers their alternative facts to other facts.)
There is no question that the issue of voter fraud is of great concern to the future of America as a nation. Significant vote fraud cannot only swing a presidential election but also elections for senators, representatives, governors and even local officials. True the Vote is on the leading edge of exposing the size and nature of the problem, and it is reasonable to expect that they will participate strongly on any presidential commission that examines this issue and makes appropriate recommendations.
