At least 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 2020 general election, as former law clerk Margot Cleveland recently revealed at The Federalist.
And she said the number likely will rise, in a state where Joe Biden was ahead of Donald Trump by only 12,670 votes when officials ended the counting. In that state, since the election, lawmakers have adopted voter integrity procedures.
But she said the news created hardly a ripple for Democrats.
“If Democrats cared about disenfranchisement, they would care about legal voters disenfranchised by scofflaws. They would care about what happened in Georgia,” she wrote at The Federalist.
“Instead, when Georgia passed the Election Integrity Act of 2021, Democrats, led by Biden, targeted the state, calling the law ‘Jim Crow on steroids,’ prompting Major League Baseball to move its All-Star Game from Atlanta. Then, after H.R. 1 stalled in the Senate, the Biden administration’s Department of Justice filed a frivolous lawsuit against Georgia, claiming the state’s election integrity law violated the Voting Rights Act.”
She explained, “The irony here is that, for all the Democrats screaming that Georgia’s law, and similar voting-integrity bills passed or pending in other states, represent Jim Crow disenfranchisement efforts, there is more evidence that voters are disenfranchised by fraud than any of the provisions sought to prevent fraud. Yes, proof of widespread fraud in more recent years is lacking, but whether that is due to the difficulty of proving such fraud or because fraud only occurs at the fringes is unknown. As the Supreme Court has stressed, ‘it should go without saying that a State may take action to prevent election fraud without waiting for it to occur and be detected within its own borders.'”
She called it a deflection that officials reassuringly say there’s no evidence of “widespread fraud.”
“Every instance of voter fraud disenfranchises a legal voter and thus voting fraud need not be ‘widespread’ to violate the fundamental constitutional right to vote—’a sacred right of the highest character,'” she said.
She reported last week on the specific issue that affirms thousands of illegal votes were cast in Georgia, one of a handful of swing states in the 2020 election.
She said at least 10,300 illegal votes were cast in Georgia in the November 2020 general election – and that number “will continue to rise over the next several months.”
The issue is that Joe Biden was ahead of Donald Trump by only 12,670 votes when officials ended the counting.
Georgia also is one of six swing states that went – narrowly – for Biden after President Trump had held significant leads on election night.
It’s also been revealed that a Democrat activist played a role in providing election workers to the state, some ballots were “pristine” as if they’d never been handled, much less mailed in, those appeared to have been copied, several suitcases of ballots were snatched from under a table where they’d been hidden until election observers left and then counted, and more.
Cleveland, formerly a permanent law clerk to a federal appellate judge, explained the possibility is there that “nearly 35,000 Georgians had potentially voted illegally.”
As more and more such evidence is obtained from audits of election results in several states, and the work of investigative journalists, the more and more likely appear Trump’s contentions that there was fraud in the counts, and that fraud resulted in a “stolen” election.
Fact-checkers, meanwhile, have responded to reports of problematic voting practices by claiming everything has been reviewed and checked and there was no fraudulent activity anywhere.
“While this evidence does not change the fact that Joe Biden is our president, all Americans who genuinely care about free and fair elections and the disenfranchisement of voters should demand both transparency and solutions to prevent a repeat in future elections,” Cleveland explained. “This evidence also vindicates former President Trump and his legal team for the related public (and private) comments and legal arguments made in challenging the Georgia election results.”
The newest issue in Georgia is that under state law, residents must vote in the county where they live unless they changed their residence within 30 days of the election.
Cleveland cites the work of Jake Evans, an Atlanta election lawyer, who said if those people vote in a county in which they no longer reside, outside of that 30-day grace period, “Their vote in that county would be illegal.”
But the report explained Mark Davis of Data Productions Inc. and an expert in voter data analytics and residency issues, “obtained data from the National Change of Address (NCOA) database that identified Georgia residents who had confirmed moves with the U.S. Postal Service. After excluding moves with effective dates within 30 days of the general election, and by using data available from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, Davis identified nearly 35,000 Georgia voters who indicated they had moved from one Georgia county to another, but then voted in the 2020 general election in the county from which they had moved.”
The report noted that while some of the moves may have been temporary, for students and such, the number still is significant, and yet , “the media, the courts, and the secretary of state’s office ignored or downplayed the issue.”
“It was disconcerting to see the media and the courts largely ignore serious issues like these, especially since the data I was seeing showed very legitimate issues,” Davis told Cleveland. “In fact, I heard members of the Secretary of State’s team admit some votes were cast with residency issues, but then claimed there weren’t enough of them to cast the outcome of the election in doubt.”
In a commentary on Monday, Cleveland explained the “facts matter because every illegal vote cancels out a lawful one.”
She explained diluting a valid vote is just as effective as banning voting when it comes to elections.
She explained vote fraud is a valid concern, and, “There’s a sure-fire way to prove the left doesn’t care about disenfranchisement: Ask them about the mounting evidence of tens of thousands of illegal votes cast in Georgia in the 2020 general election, because while widespread voter fraud may be difficult to prove, establishing extensive illegal voting is not.”
