Every vote should count but every illegal vote should be found and tossed. Pennsylvania officials are trying to keep that from happening by hiding data to keep up to 100,00 illegal voters. That could be the difference in a close election!
Reports of illegal voters who were caught but continued voting are part of a federal lawsuit filed on Monday. One of the big problems is that there is not a system in place to permanently remove the illegals:
“In large measure, the illegal voter registrations detailed in these records were self-reported aliens. There was no active process in place to detect and remove them.” – PILF, Public Interest Legal Foundation
PENNSYLVANIA OFFICIAL CALLS THIS A “GLITCH”?
Pennsylvania state elections officials are hiding data on noncitizen voters, obscuring what could be as many as 100,000 illegal voters in the crucial swing state, according to a federal lawsuit filed Monday.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), which promotes “clean” voter registration rolls across the country, has sought records from Pennsylvania required under the so-called motor voter law. The law, formally known as the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), allows members of the public to inspect records related to registered voters.
“For months, Pennsylvania bureaucrats have concealed facts about noncitizens registering and voting — that ends today,” PILF President and general counsel J. Christian Adams said in a statement. “Before this lawsuit, the state admitted to a ‘glitch’ that exposed thousands of driver’s license customers to voter registration offers despite their noncitizen status since the 1990s.”
Adams noted that the secretary of state abruptly resigned in October. Adams added that his organization “hopes to finally get answers about the true scale of noncitizen voting in Pennsylvania and assist lawmakers in crafting reforms that fix it.”
The civil complaint names acting Secretary of State Robert Torres and Jonathan Marks, the commissioner of the Bureau of Commissions, Elections and Legislation, as defendants. A spokeswoman for the secretary of state’s office said the office does not comment on pending litigation.
PILF has been highlighting voting irregularities since at least 2015, when it reported that 86 registered voters in the city of Philadelphia asked elections officials between 2013 and 2015 to be removed from the rolls because they were not U.S. citizens.
Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia city commissioner, later testified before a state legislative committee that 220 noncitizens successfully registered to vote between 2006 and 2017, and that 90 of them had cast 277 ballots.
