In Wisconsin, where up to 23,000 voters allegedly had the same phone number, a fourth person was arrested for voter fraud. District Attorney Eric Toney told Madison.com that he “will continue to prosecute any circumstances of voter fraud,” and he is coming through on his word. However, in addition to his investigation, a former Wisconsin Supreme Court Judge is leading an investigation into Wisconsin’s voter fraud in the 2020 elections.
The former Judge told Associated Press that he would subpoena all officials who refused to comply in his investigation, and Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he would sign every subpoena. However, Wisconsin isn’t the only state to charge individuals with voter fraud. According to Madison.com, there are always charges of election fraud following significant elections. Three of the four current cases involve fraudulent absentee ballots in the 2020 election and this current one consists of a felon on probation who illegally registered to vote.
In Pennsylvania, a circuit judge with ties to the Democrat Party was charged with altering the vote count after it was found he took bribes to alter the vote count in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections in his state. According to the DOJ’s press release about him, he stuffed ballot boxes by repeatedly voting to inflate the vote count for specific candidates. According to Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, “This defendant abused his office by engaging in election fraud for profit.”
Additionally, U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania said that the judge “fraudulently stuffed the ballot box by literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear. This is utterly reprehensible conduct. The charges announced today do not erase what he did, but they do ensure that he is held to account for those actions.”
The circuit judge is one of 21 individuals or groups charged with voter fraud in 2021 alone, three of which are in California. However, in Mississippi, the Democrat Primary election was overturned because of absentee ballot fraud which changed the election results. The election overturning was done after the results were certified. Additionally, a notary who notarized votes for the election also allegedly admitted she falsely notarized the votes to change the election outcome.
In 2020, a group of four people in California were charged with ballot petition fraud and buying votes by offering homeless men either cigarettes or $1 if they would forge their signatures on state ballot petitions and voter registration forms. According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, the offers resulted in hundreds of signatures. This wasn’t the only case in California of falsifying signatures in exchange for cash. Last year a California woman was charged for gathering fraudulent signatures on a petition for a political consulting firm. She allegedly gathered at least 100 signatures and was reportedly sued by 20 of the victims of her scheme.
