As a follow up to our item the other day on the recent academic study examining the evidence of widespread voting by non-citizens, there are two stories out today.
First, Bryan Preston over at Breitbart reports on what appears to be significant voting anomalies in Maryland (where there is a surprisingly close governor’s race that has not attracted much attention outside the state):
The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people in Frederick County who stated that they are not U.S. citizens on jury duty forms went on to cast votes in elections. Either they failed to tell the truth when they were summoned for jury duty, or they cast illegal votes. Both are crimes. The same group previously found that about 40,000 people are registered to vote in both Virginia and Maryland.
Meanwhile, the Daily Caller is all over efforts by La Raza (“the race”) to inform illegal aliens where they can successfully cast ballots without an ID:
The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.
“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic)graphic from the Post’s graphics team.”
I’m sure Eric Holder will have the Justice Department right on this.
