Study: Non-Citizens Voting In Virginia By The Hundreds

Study: Non-Citizens Voting In Virginia By The Hundreds, by Kerry Picket.

A study conducted by the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) showed that in the key swing state of Virginia voter registration rolls have been tainted with the presence of at least 1000 non-citizens [after sampling just 8 of the 95 counties].

The study surfaced in the wake of Andrew Spieles, a young Democrat admitting he registered 19 dead people in Harrisonburg, Virginia to vote. …

[T]his situation is a result of a Clinton administration bill — known as Motor Voter Act — that passed a Democratic Congress in 1993. The law requires anyone who applies for a driver’s license must be offered to register to vote. On the registration form the one must only check a “yes” or “no” box when asked if the person is a citizen of the United States “and thousands are lying — just in Virginia,” [former DOJ Attorney J. Christian Adams] writes. …

It should be noted that Virginia’s last statewide races were nail biters with Republican Mark Obenshain losing his race for Attorney General in 2013 by 165 votes and Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe winning by three percentage points over Republican Ken Cuccinelli.
