Now the Washington Post has stooped to giving cover to voter fraud in American elections. Specifically, the Post has “An Alien Invasion in the Old Dominion?” by Peter Galuszka. They conveniently answer the question for readers just below the headline: “A new report claims boldly — and wrongly — that non-citizens are registered to vote.”
It’s the Post that got it wrong.
The Post refers to this report by the Public Interest Legal Foundation which released government documents showing that election officials in just eight Virginia counties removed in excess of 1,000 from voting rolls for citizenship problems, and that many of them cast ballots. Remember, Virginia is where the current attorney general won power by a couple of hundred votes out of 4,000,000 cast. Virginia election officials have ordered counties not to release any more list maintenance records showing aliens removed from the rolls, and have refused to provide the same.
If you bother to read the actual Post story, you’ll find Galuszka has this startling conclusion, that over 1,000 non-citizens on the voters rolls in just eight counties in Virginia is no big deal.
But even if all 1,046 cases the groups claim are valid, they do not make their point, given that more than 2 million Virginians tend to vote in elections. That’s hardly massive voting fraud.
Really? That’s what the Post has become? Whether there is one, 1,045, or 200 cases of non-citizens on the rolls, each instance is a federal felony punishable by up to five years in a federal penitentiary. One wonders if Galuszka doesn’t care because he suspects they are voting the way he prefers.
