‘It Undermines Integrity Of Elections’: Glitch Allows Non-U.S. Citizens In Pa. To Vote

September 20, 2017 4:06 PM By Pat Loeb

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt says a glitch in the state’s “motor-voter” process has allowed non-U.S. citizens to register to vote, even though he thinks they did so accidentally.

The glitch has had no impact on elections, as the number of people mistakenly registered was small, but Schmidt thinks that statewide there could be many more and he wants the state to review registrations. He also wants it to cross check all active voter registration records against all current PennDOT records containing INS Indicators.

Secretary of State Pedro Cortes issued a statement saying PennDOT is changing its system to prevent the problem in the future and has already made improvements. He did not address reviewing and cross checking registrations statewide. A spokeswoman for Cortes said they are conducting their own review.

Voting advocates say Schmidt’s concern is misplaced and they worry more about voter suppression, with a Trump administration panel looking for fraud even where there is no evidence of any.

Schmidt hastens to say he does not consider the non-citizen registrations as fraud.

“Voter fraud implies intent,” says Schmidt. “Voting irregularity is a vote that was not a legitimate vote but it’s not cast with the intention to commit fraud.”

Schmidt says 220 non-citizens have registered in the last 12 years and 90 of them actually voted.

He found three-quarters of them signed up when they got their driver’s license. He believes that’s because — even though they told PennDOT they were non-citizens — the automatic screens used during the process asked if they also wanted to register to vote. Non-citizens, living here legally, are allowed to drive but not vote, but Schmidt thinks they didn’t realize that.

“Maybe they think it’s a sign of their civic participation and then find out down the line they’re not eligible to vote and they contact our office and ask that their registration be cancelled,” he says.

He says there may be many more who didn’t contact the office.

David Thornburgh, president and CEO of the election watchdog, The Committee of Seventy, doubts that.

“I can’t believe this would be the tip of the iceberg,” he says. “I don’t understand why this surfaces right now. This is a miniscule number, about .02 percent of all the city’s registered voters. I don’t get it.”

Thornburgh points to a study by the non-partisan Keystone Votes that found 17,000 registrations in Philadelphia were processed late, making the potential disenfranchisement of legitimate voters a bigger problem than the accidental registering of non-citizens.

But Schmidt says he has another concern.

“It undermines the integrity of elections and it undermines their own chances of becoming citizens,” Schmidt says. “That’s very unfair, as well.”

Cortes agrees and says the state was taking action even before it heard from Schmidt. Here is his statement:

“In August 2016, the department changed the order and simplified the language of the Motor Voter screens. After selecting a language, applicants are immediately asked if they are U.S. citizens. If the answer is no, the process stops and no further Motor Voter questions are presented to the PennDOT customer.

“At the same time, we increased the number of languages offered with Motor Voter screens from only English and Spanish to an additional 12 options. The enhancement is in place at 89 of 97 PennDOT locations and the rollout will be complete in a few weeks. This will greatly reduce the chances of PennDOT’s non-citizen customers inadvertently clicking through the screen.

“Additionally, the department is changing the Motor Voter system so non-citizens will not even see the Motor Voter screens. We are also placing additional notices to inform all applicants of laws regarding voter registration.

“The Department of State, the Department of Transportation and Pennsylvania’s county election professionals are committed to protecting the rights of eligible citizens to vote. The freedom we cherish was built on this right and generations of Americans have fought to remove unfair barriers to this right.”
Pat Loeb



Almost 41% of the 220 they identified as having registered when they were not citizens actually voted in elections.

How many more people were there in Pennsylvania that illegally registered?????




What baffles me is why they act like it's nothing to worry about if only a small percentage commit voter fraud.

Pack of crooked enabling cunts. :roll: Voter fraud is still voter fraud and should be completely addressed. Not excused.

Progressives Sound Alarm on Voter Fraud

Leftwing candidates in Alabama, Minnesota claim local elections impacted by fraud



BY: Joe Schoffstall
December 3, 2017 5:00 am

Progressive candidates for local office in Alabama and Minnesota have claimed in recent weeks that they are the victims of voter fraud, despite liberal protestations that the idea voter fraud could impact elections is little more than a rightwing myth.

A local Alabama chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) is alleging voter fraud in a nonpartisan city council race despite the organization's national president claiming that voter fraud is a "myth." Meanwhile, a progressive candidate in Minneapolis, Minn., who was endorsed by the local chapter of a national group linked to the Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) movement, is also accusing a fellow progressive opponent of voter fraud.

The Phenix City, Ala., NAACP has raised questions following a Nov. 14 nonpartisan city council election in the state's second district.

Vickey Carter-Johnson, a black candidate, received 240 votes, failing to reach a majority with only 49 percent of the vote. Baxley Oswalt, a white candidate, pulled in 225 votes (46 percent) while another candidate claimed 25 votes, or 5 percent. The election is now going to a runoff.

The local NAACP chapter claims that a substantial amount of registered voters who cast ballots came from outside of the district and that those individuals used a commercial address as their residential, or voting, address.

"We, the Phenix City-Russell County NAACP, are here to voice our earnest concerns about the voter fraud allegations," said Rev. Alfonza Seldon, the vice president of the local branch. "The Phenix City-Russell County NAACP, along with the voters of District 2, want to get down to the bottom of these allegations that have been discovered in the Nov. 14 city council election."

Seldon added that the ordeal is "an atrocity to law-abiding voters and a shame on Phenix City." The NAACP chapter is now calling for an investigation into the matter and wants an emergency purge of voters before the December 19 runoff election.

"Also we're requesting an updated list to be reviewed by our executive board to ensure that all the ineligible voters' names have been removed and the updated list is accurate," said Seldon.

Cornell Williams Brooks, the NAACP's national president, has contended that voter fraud is a "myth" and that voter suppression is real.

The NAACP's Washington bureau did not return a request for comment on the allegations in Alabama given their president's views on voter fraud by press time.

"It's fascinating to see the NAACP come out in favor of bulk voter list removals, especially under a fast-approaching deadline in the form of an election," Logan Churchwell, spokesman for the Public Interest Legal Foundation, a group that litigates to protect election integrity, told the Washington Free Beacon. "Apparently, deeply-ingrained opposition to voter list maintenance efforts can be shelved if a favored candidate is on the line."

"There is a straightforward solution for preventing this sort of activity moving forward. Some states require that blacklists be developed to weed out voter applications claiming strictly commercial addresses as their homes," added Churchwell. "In this case, local election officials and law enforcement have a duty to probe cases of intentional fraudulent registration for maximum prosecution."

Mohamud Noor, a progressive candidate for city council in Minneapolis's Ward 6, who was endorsed by Our Revolution Minnesota, a local chapter of a Washington, D.C., group linked to Sen. Sanders's movement, also claims that "at least one hundred people" appeared to have voted in his election that live outside of the ward, according to reports.

"After a preliminary review of the voter data which was provided to us last Friday, we have found evidence that at least one hundred people appear to have voted in our election who do not live in Ward 6," Noor said in a press release.

"Because a recount can not address these irregularities, we will bring this evidence to a court to determine what to do with these findings," Noor continued. "It is our responsibility to make sure that the integrity of our democracy is protected, and that these irregularities are fully investigated."

Abdi Warsame, his progressive opponent, told Noor to bring his concerns to President Donald Trump's voter fraud commission.

"If Mr. Noor believes people voted illegally, he can bring his ‘evidence' to County Attorney Michael Freeman and seek felony prosecution," said Warsame. "Or perhaps he can bring his claims to Donald Trump's Advisory Commission on Election Integrity."

Noor, who withdrew his challenge following the recount that had him losing by 239 votes, has said that he will present evidence of fraud and challenge the results in court, ABC 5 News reports.

However, the city council said they planned to certify Warsame's victory.

So let me see if I got this right: members of the same party are fighting one another over 'voter fraud?'

If so, seems like more signs of the ongoing extinction of said party/movement/division within the moiety.

Five Lake County residents indicted on election-related charges

With early voting under way for the March 20 primary election, officials have announced the indictment of five people on felony charges related to the November 2016 general election in Lake County.

The charges against the five local residents began with information uncovered by the Lake County Clerk's Office, and then the cases were developed through an investigation by the Lake County State's Attorney's Office.

Assistant State's Attorney Fred Day said the cases all involve alleged crimes stemming from the Nov. 8, 2016 general election, and the lengthy time frame prior to charges included initial discovery of the alleged crimes by the clerk's office, followed by the need to interview both witnesses and those eventually charged in the cases as part of the investigation.

According to Day and court records, Marcelo Villaruz of Beach Park was charged with perjury for allegedly misrepresenting his citizenship prior to voting. His wife, Gina Villaruz, was indicted on the same charges. Both are scheduled to be arraigned March 21, as are the other three defendants.

Yvette Yust, of Waukegan, was also charged with two counts of perjury for misrepresenting citizenship, Day said.


Day said that Janet Pokryfke of Mundelein was charged with voting more than once, and perjury for allegedly casting both mail-in and walk-in votes in the general election.

Finally, Marvin Hershman of Riverwoods was charged with two counts of voting more than once and one count of perjury, according to Day.

All of the charges faced by the five defendants are Class 3 felonies, carrying a potential sentence of probation or 2 to 5 years in prison upon conviction.

The five defendants, who were indicted Wednesday by a Lake County Grand Jury, join three other defendants in more high-profile 2016 alleged election fraud cases.

Former Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd faces five counts of perjury based on allegations that he signed several election petition pages for the 2016 primary without having collected the signatures himself. Rudd has said his signatures on the pages were a mistake and an unintended oversight.

He is scheduled for trial May 21.

Also, Ellen Mauer, a member of the Libertyville-Vernon Hills Community High School District 128 Board, and Denise Zwit, secretary to the school district's Superintendent, Prentiss Lea, have been charged with perjury related to nominating petitions in the 2016 School Board election.

Officials said both Mauer and Zwit are in negotiations with prosecutors for potential plea deal resolutions to their cases.

Mauer allegedly affirmed in writing that she personally collected signatures on her candidate petitions for the April 4 District 128 school board election, while the state alleges she did not collect the signatures herself, Day said.

Zwit allegedly falsely signed that she was the circulator of several candidate petition signature pages for school board President Patrick Groody, according to prosecutors.

Then, when you show examples, they proclaim it doesn't matter.

5 cases with actual EVIDENCE sufficient for prosecution which likely required inside knowledge of the crime an hundreds of hours of investigation.

This is ONE precinct in a state with a tiny fraction of illegal aliens. Move along...folks. Nothing to see here.


The damdest thing is they don't even sound like Russian names.

Salvadoran Illegal Immigrant Indicted for Alleged Voter Fraud in Texas

A Salvadoran national, who Texas prosecutors say has been living illegally in the state since the 1980s, was indicted by a federal grand jury for alleged voter fraud and other immigration violations.

On Friday, Joseph Brown, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas, announced that Mario Obdulio Orellana, 57, was named in a five-count indictment earlier in June. The feds charged him with two counts of false representation of U.S. citizenship, giving a false statement in a passport application, the unauthorized use of a Social Security number, and voter fraud.

Orellana allegedly entered the U.S. illegally from El Salvador in the early 1980s, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. In 1987, while illegally residing in Shelby County, Texas, Orellana purportedly falsified documents to obtain a birth certificate that showed he was born in the United States. He then applied for and received a U.S. passport and a Social Security number. Prosecutors said Orellana also claimed to be a U.S. citizen when registering to vote and cast a fraudulent ballot in the November 2016 presidential election.

Orellana made an initial appearance in federal court on Thursday. His sentencing will be set after the completion of a pre-sentence investigation by the U.S. Probation Office. He faces up to a maximum of 10 years in federal prison.

The issue of voter fraud, including illegal voting by noncitizens, remains a growing concern in the Lone Star State. Last year, Texas tried Rosa Maria Ortega, a Mexican national, for voting illegally in elections over a decade. She falsely claimed U.S. citizenship and voted as a Republican at least five times in Dallas County. This included the November 2012 general election and a May 2014 primary run-off. During her trial, Ortega said she thought she was an American citizen when she was only a U.S. legal permanent resident, which rendered her ineligible to vote. A judge sentenced her to eight years in prison for “illegal voting” under Texas law.

In 2018, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said his office will prosecute Laura Janeth Garza, a Mexican national indicted by a Montgomery County grand jury on two counts of election fraud for illegally voting in 2016, 2012, and 2004. Garza purportedly stole the identity of a U.S. citizen who resides in Texas. The suspect secured a U.S. passport and registered to vote in Harris County. This situation surfaced when the alleged victim applied for her own passport.

In March, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a national election integrity law firm, filed a lawsuit against Harris County for allegedly failing to disclose noncitizen voter records as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, also known as the “Motor Voter” law. Breitbart Texas reported Paxton urged a state court judge in a separate lawsuit to facilitate the PILF’s request after Harris County sued over a ruling that noncitizen records should not be disclosed–contrary to the Attorney General’s published opinion on the matter.

The organization took to Twitter to comment on the Obdulio Orellana case, arguing that it’s another example for why states should implement “citizenship verification” in the voter registration system.

19 Illegal Immigrants In NC Voted In 2016 Election, Federal Officials Say

A news release from United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina also said several of those charged voted in more than one election.

Author: WNCN
Published: 4:10 PM EDT August 24, 2018
Updated: 4:15 PM EDT August 24, 2018

WILMINGTON, N.C. (WNCN) - Federal authorities announced Friday that 19 illegal immigrants in North Carolina illegally voted during the 2016 election.

A news release from United States Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina also said several of those charged voted in more than one election.

The indictments were made by a federal grand jury in Wilmington and included illegal voting in Wake, Johnston, Cumberland and Wilson counties.

One of the group, Ramon Esteban Paez-Jerez, 58, of the Dominican Republic, voted illegally in Wake County on Nov. 8, 2016, officials say. He was also charged with two counts of passport fraud, the news release said.

Officials said the following are charged with false claim of United States citizenship in order to register to vote and voting by an alien:

Jose Cruz Solano-Rodriguez, 41, of Mexico

Guadalupe Espinosa-Pena, 63, of Mexico

Sarah Emilia Silverio-Polanco, 35, of the Dominican Republic

Elizabeth Nene Amachaghi, 44, of Nigeria

Maria Rufina Castillo-Boswell, 31, of Philippines

Dora Maybe Damatta-Rodriguez, 64, of Panama

Elvis David Fullerton, 54, of Grenada

Olive Agatha Martin, 71, of Guyana

Kaoru Sauls, 54, of Japan

The following were charged with voting by an alien, officials said:

Jose Jaime Ramiro-Torres, 52, of El Salvador

Juan Francisco Landeros-Mireles, 64, of Mexico

Alessandro Cannizzaro, 46, of Italy

Dieudonne Soifils, 71, of Haiti

Hyo Suk George, 69, of Korea

Merius Jean, 54, of Haiti

Rosemarie Angelika Harris, 60, of Germany

Daniel Tadeusz Romanowski, 39, of Poland

Diana Patricia Franco-Rodriguez, 26, of Mexico, was indicted on charges of fraud and misuse of visas, permits, and other documents, and voting by an alien. Franco-Rodriguez illegally voted in Wake County, officials said.

Denslo Allen Paige, 66, was charged with aiding and abetting Espinosa-Pena in falsely claiming United States citizenship in order to register to vote, according to authorities.

Cannizzaro registered to vote in 2008 and voted in Wake County in the 2016 General Election, officials said.


Harris voted illegally in Cumberland County in 2016, according to officials.

Romanowski voted illegally in Johnston County in the General Elections of 2012 and 2016, officials said.

Merius Jean and Landeros-Mireles illegally voted in Wilson County during the 2012 and 2016 elections, according to the news release.

Hyo Suk George voted illegally in Columbus County in the 2008, 2010 and 2016 General Elections, officials said.

If convicted of voting by an alien the defendants would face maximum penalties of twelve months imprisonment, a $100,000 fine, and a term of supervised release following any term of imprisonment.




So not only did these people illegally vote in a US federal election, but they are also here illegally.

That was 19 people in 3 counties in North Carolina.
There are approximately 3,007 counties in the US.
Illegal aliens voting in the US is by no means isolated.

My recommendation is to prosecute them for their violations related to voter registration/illegal voting, then deport them back to wherever it is that they came from.
And their "file" should be marked with a "not ever to be readmitted" flag.

And yes, I do want Elvis (Elvis David Fullerton, 54, of Grenada) to leave the building. ;-)
