College Student to Plead Guilty to Voter Registration Fraud

Written by  Mike LaChance

“working for a Democratic-affiliated organization”

This can’t be true. We’re constantly assured by Democrats and media that voter fraud never happens.

Red Alert Politics reports:

Student to plead guilty to voter registration fraud in a swing state

The broken voter registration system is receiving new attention after a James Madison University student has agreed to plead guilty to submitting 18 fraudulent voter registration forms. While working for a Democratic-affiliated organization called Harrisonburg Votes, student Andrew J. Spieles claims he created false registrations to help a co-worker meet a quota.

Spieles faces a potential fine of up to $100,000 and up to a year in prison.

Spieles told investigators he “fabricated” registration forms by using data from the Democratic Party of Virginia’s voter files, along with names and addresses from neighborhood “walk sheets” and fake birthdays and Social Security numbers.

Unfortunately for Spieles, he chose the wrong names to use for these falsified documents. A Harrisonburg elections employee noticed that one form was filed on behalf of a county judge’s deceased father, while another employee knew the ex-wife of someone on a different registration form that Spieles had forged. After these were flagged, an investigation uncovered 16 more fraudulent forms.

While authorities say that there is no indication that any fraudulent votes were cast as a result, the case raises questions about the voter registration process.

I don't care if he is a college student or a high school drop out - This is against the law and he should be prosecuted!

Remember when the Democrats were ridiculing people for calling out the large amount of voter fraud? So now we have new evidence of organized Democrat affiliated voter fraud in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Then there is Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe's massive granting of clemency to convicted criminals for the purpose of voting in time for the presidential election. Why does the self proclaimed "party of the people", Democratic, feel the necessity to defraud the people of a fair vote?

We need new definition: all democrat votes are fraud or perhaps they need to be weighted at 67% of a vote to normalize the results as if the fraud didn't exist

A fine and jail time aren't nearly adequate enough, I suggest at least 30 canes and then the fine and jail time.

What makes this interesting is that Virginia is really tho only state Hillary won in that require ID to vote. Look at any map of the U.S. that depicts which states do and do not require ID to vote. Then look at any map of the U.S. that depicts the 2016 election results and you will see that Hillary really only won in states with sanctuary cities and that do not require ID to vote.

Not just a problem w/ fraudulent registrations- but actual illegal voting (and illegals voting). In Virginia. falsely registering to vote is a felony! How many prosecutions have there been of this felonious voting?! McAuliffe illegally restored felon voting rights (of felons convicted of violent crimes), by the way- "en masse"- b/c he's a corrupt Dem pol & Clinton crony. Remember too that in neighboring MD, a Dem Congressional candidate Wendy Rosen, was caught by the state of FL- b/c she was voting in two states. Does anyone think she'd have been exposed had she not run for Congress? Her contemptible rationale was that her crime was an act of "civil disobedience." She paid a fine- but should have gone to jail--- maybe then, this cheating would stop.

"There is nothing to see here folks - move along" that is what the DNC is trying to say, don't let them fool you this is not an isolated incident. This is indicative of a much larger problem that permeates every State in the Union. Think about it 18 they found in one County. In my State there are 114 counties. They say we only find about 1% of a problem. so multiply by 100 and you get 1800 in one county in my State that would be 205,200. In all 50 States that is over 10 million, and that doesn't even include Non-eligible voters (non-citizens, felons, etc). SO the problem could be 10 times that. But "there's nothing to see here".

A Year is certainly not enough unless applied to each ACT OF FRAUD. $100,000.00 for mass fraud and up to Twenty Years for mass fraud. This One should be fined $20,000 plus interest and late penalties and Five Years with no early release. His crime as with others that have done the same, is a CRIME AGAINST ALL AMERICANS.

A thorough and impartial investigation is a must to bring out all frauds.

"Where there is a will, there is a way" Democrats have been interfering in voter investigation for years; they seem to use sex and race at every opportunity. The Democrat involvement in 'minority' areas during election should be obvious. Seems the Republicans are too damn lazy to investigate.

Dear Jeff. Just remember the States are incharge of their own elections and registrations. It is a States right issue. I have been involved along with a group of women for 7 years to get our laws changed. We are lucky to have gotten many changes made especially when it comes to registration. We have passed a photo I.D. bill. The problem is with Democrats and other far left groups. They come up with very dubious, fake reasons to stop legally passed laws and we have to keep going back to Court. If you have problems with the laws, study the issues and get a group of people ro work on changing them. when we looked into our regisration laws here in Wi. that is were we found a lot of the problems. We worked with the Municipal Clerks to ask them about any problems they saw and would like changed. It takes hard work and some dedication, but it beats complaining and doing nothing. Not voting is not the answer, its the easy way out and serves no purpose. Men and Women have fought and died for your right to vote.

They may be different things, but they lead to the same end result; people voting that are, for whatever reason, are not legally permitted to vote, or people who are voting multiple times..
No photo I.D., motor-voter registration and many other tricks result in the dilution of everyone's franchise; which affects all citizens who are legally permitted to vote; even you.

No, they are not. Voter registration usually comes about because people are trying to make quotas for pay. There are a number of those cases each year. There were 35 cases of voter fraud in a billion votes from 2001-2014 according to the Loyola Law School study. Voter fraud is extremely rare.

Making false statements on voter registration is a criminal offense *******(even if no voting occurred on that registration)....
https://ballotpedia.org/Voter_registration_fraud
"Voter registration fraud is considered to be a type of vote fraud. It is the act of registering to vote, or registering someone else to vote, in order to garnish more votes for a specific candidate."
http://www.fairus.org/issue/noncitizens-voting-violations-and-u-s-elections
"Federal Elections The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA) requires that persons registering to vote in federal elections affirm that they are United States Citizens. Failure to do so is a crime punishable under the following statutes:
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 611, it is a crime – punishable by a fine and up to one year in prison – for an alien to vote in a federal election.
Pursuant to 8 U.S.C. § 1227, any alien who has voted in violation of any Federal, State, or local constitutional provision, statute, ordinance, or regulation is deportable.
******Pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1973gg-10(2) any false statement concerning an applicant’s citizenship status that is made on a registration form submitted to election authorities is a crime.

Vote fraud, not voter fraud. Voter fraud is when you attempt to vote when you have no legal right to.

Just remember what Mark Twain said "If voting made any real difference, they would not let us do it." After voting for Ds and Rs for 43 years and seeing no change in the way this corrupt government functions, I for one will never cast a vote for a D or R the rest of my life. Anyone who thinks DT will change things in DC is fooling themselves. He has the same creatures from the swamp working for him that Bush did and we think things are going to change. Not in our life time.

Well, I wonder why Rosie O' Donnell hasn't yet tweeted what a brave young patriot he is!

Let's see. 18 registrations and no proof that anyone even voted on those 18. What happened to the millions of fraudulent votes that Donnie claimed?
Even if there were millions of fraudulent votes, at least half of them would have been republicans. It's just another one of Donnie's many lies.

Well little Jimmy we can all see that an education and the ability to use common sense and logic was an option in your house! How many illegal aliens would register to vote Republican? There are several existing reports that show, statistically speaking, anywhere from 4 million to 8 million non-citizens have registered to vote in elections at the local level to the national level. The problem with catching someone doing voter fraud is that a lot of states don't file charges, don't promote keeping records, and certainly don't admit to their own acts involving voter fraud. I'm talking the entirety of voter fraud. Fraudulent registration, fraudulently in person voting, fraudulently mailing in vote, voting more than once at different voting booths, voting more than once in different states, etc. Get your tin foil hat out, your two cans connected with a string, and hide out in your tree fort and let the adults handle it.

Randy -- No. There are no such studies that exist. That's a total lie. The reason is that if a study reported such an estimate that ranged between 4 million and 8 million, that would mean the estimate was made of such a tiny sample size to be ridiculous (in other words, the standard deviation would be so great for such a sample size that you would end up with such a broad result).

Studies that have reported on possible invalid registrations are looking not at non-citizens anyway. They are looking at everything, including invalid addresses, and voters who have died. So, bullshit on your stupid claim!

I was an idealistic young Democrat, in college in West Philadelphia, about to vote for John F Kennedy back in 1960. But my wife was a Republican, and had Republican stickers on the rear of our 1956 Chevrolet. The day before the election, we discovered that someone had stolen all the plastic back up light, stop light, and reverse light covers from the rear of our car, leaving bare light bulbs. We drove to our Chevrolet dealer a few blocks away, and bought new ones.

She dropped me off at our apartment on the 4400 block of Walnut Street, and drove on to Upper Darby, PA where she worked as a legal secretary. I picked up my books, and started off the school. In mid-block I was stopped by a thug who told me that it would be a shame to see my beautiful wife's face cut up in an accident, etc, and that he would pick me up next day to be sure I voted.

Next day he and another thug picked up 4 of us students, and we voted in 4 precincts using voter cards of the dead.

As late as 14 years ago, when I moved to Texas, a Democrat lawyer friend of mine was bringing people in from suburban counties to vote, using false registrations from vacant houses in Philadelphia. So picture the hundreds of Democrats who voted in 2 different counties, multiplied by those in major Democrat cities and counties around the US.

Another Republican lawyer friend admitted being registered to vote at his home county, but also at his Philadelphia office. VERY small change compared to Democrat voter fraudulent voting.

Early in November, 2016, Obama was being interviewed by a Hispanic female on TV, who suggested that illegal aliens were in fear of being deported if they were caught voting. He assured her that they were safe, for no one in his administration would challenge them - meaning no one in CA, IL, NY or other such Democrat-dominated states. Think of the huge number taken to the polls by Democrat operatives!

I recall seeing a reporter on TV, standing in line to vote in 2012, and talking to a man in front of him. The subject said he loved to vote, and this was his 4th time today!

Remember also that several precincts in Detroit had more votes cast last November that there were registered voters! The same happened in Democrat-dominated Cleveland in 2012.

Realize also the immense numbers of Democrats who keep the voter cards of their deceased relatives, and use them to vote several times. I was taken to several precincts to vote Democrat in 1960 for Kennedy with 3 other students. My one legal Democrat vote, and 3 false, and the same for the other 3. 9 illegal votes in just the 4 of us.

As late as 14 years ago, when I moved from PA to Texas, a Democrat lawyer friend of mine was bringing people in from suburban counties to vote, using false registrations from vacant houses in Philadelphia. So picture the hundreds of Democrats who voted in 2 different counties, multiplied by those in major Democrat cities and counties around the US.

Estimates mean absolutely nothing. If there were 4-8 million fraudulent votes, surely there would be some kind of smoking gun to prove such outrageous claims.
You can bet your booty that those estimates were put out there by some right wing baggers.

Keep at it.. You can find a million more just like him. They are trained this way. They are alinsky-ed at the throttle of taxpayer money, student loans to be entered into the big alinsky creation machine...
We must attack it for what it is. Any 'democrat' voter who ignores it is not the ;good person' they are brainwashed into thinking they are. Th democrat p[arty is corrupt and destructive, for the purpose of enrichment through destruction, for the purpose of access to taxpayer funding to fix the destruction they will willfully create more of for the purpose of ever more federal funding. EVIL!

Someone needs to serve some serious prison time for this offense. I would like to see this person serve a minimum of five years in a Correctional Institution. With a Felony on their record, they'll play hell expunging it.

There need to be some real consequences for this.
