Was Trump Right About Voter Fraud?


"When California Democrats Cancelled Out Your Vote"
Yesterday Donald Trump issued a charge that, without illegal voting in California and other states, he would have won the popular vote. 
Well that sent Chicago's former Mayor, Richard Dailey spinning in his grave. The Dailey's were famous for firing up the old Chicago Machine..and recording the votes of tens of thousands of dead people. His machine workers simply walked through cemeteries and registered the long dead residents there as Democrats.
Things haven't changed much. The Democrats yesterday were outraged at Trump's charge.
So was Trump wrong?
Let's consider California's AB60, the motor voter law California enacted in the spring of 2013. Under AB60 millions of illegal Mexicans can walk into a DMV office and get either a state ID card, or a California driver's license. And under California statutes the names of everyone who gets a driver's license goes straight to Sacramento where they are automatically registered to vote. The only way a name doesn't go to the voter rolls is if the driver's license registrant willfully indicates that they don't want their name on the voter rolls.
California's Democratic leaders say the legalization of voters is protected since Federal voter laws makes it a felony to willfully misrepresent oneself as a citizen.
Let's consider that. Just how "law-abiding" are illegal Mexicans going to be when, by the very act of coming here illegally, they have already flaunted one of our most important laws...the integrity of our border!
But, hold on! California Democrats were deathly afraid that illegal Mexicans might be afraid to be caught violating Federal voting laws. 
To quell the fears of illegal Mexicans being held liable for voting in elections they weren't eligible to do, the Democratic solons in Sacramento passed AB1461. The bill, while full of official gobbledygook, officially gives illegal Mexicans a pass from any penalty for their voting illegally. Don't believe me? 
Here's the actual extract from AB1461:
"Existing law makes it a crime for a person to willfully cause, procure, or allow himself or herself or any other person to be registered as a voter, knowing that he or she or that other person is not entitled to registration. Existing law also makes it a crime to fraudulently vote or attempt to vote.
This bill, AB1461, would provide that if a person who is ineligible to vote becomes registered to vote by operation of the California New Motor Voter Program in the absence of a violation by that person of the crime described above, that person’s registration shall be presumed to have been effected with official authorization and not the fault of that person. The bill would also provide that if a person who is ineligible to vote becomes registered to vote by operation of this program, and that person votes or attempts to vote in an election held after the effective date of the person’s registration, that person shall be presumed to have acted with official authorization and is not guilty of fraudulently voting or attempting to vote."
So was Trump right? Did millions of illegal aliens vote in this last Presidential election? If you're confused read the actual words of AB1461 again. California hi-jacked your votes, people. It's pretty clear that your Democratic leadership just made your votes null and void...and made it perfectly okay for illegals to vote in your state.

"Vote Early! Vote Often!" I read Trump's entire NYT's interview and it (he) wasn't that bad!
Trump said that he went after the Electoral Vote and had he been after the Popular vote he would have spent more time in New York and California. He actually offered a nice defense for the Electoral College. I don't think most Democrats want a recount.

Good morning, Jerry. I'm sure Trump's handlers told him his only shot was the electoral college. As to the popular vote in California and New York, well, that might be true, might not. I still have a feeling that Trump was surprised by all this as many of wee were.
