Massive Non-Citizen Voting Uncovered in Maryland
In a statement, Del. McDonough says:
There are frequent allegations in America and Maryland about the existence of voter fraud. In the case I am presenting today, there is documentation and a track record. The numbers and facts from the records in Frederick County are the tip of the iceberg. When these numbers are multiplied by including the other subdivisions in Maryland, the potential number is alarming and could change the outcome of a close statewide election.
Even more dangerous is the probability of many local elections that are decided by a few votes could be affected. All 188 members of the Maryland General Assembly are standing for re-election as well as many local office holders.
The important election that we have coming up demands that citizens’ votes are not diluted or cancelled by non-citizens who are not legally permitted to vote. The sanctity of the ballot box, because of the flawed system we are pointing out, has already been violated in previous elections.
The purpose of the lawsuit is to mandate those responsible for the administration of the election process will remove the non-citizens from the final voting count.
The purpose of the investigation by the special prosecutor is to penetrate more deeply statewide and determine why this fraud or any other related violation was allowed to occur.
The purpose of the legislation is to plug the massive loophole in current law which permitted these fraudulent practices to take place.
Maryland is a Democratic stronghold especially around its larger cities, but the governor's race there is tightening as Republican Larry Hogan gains ground. Illegal votes could tip the balance if the legal vote is close enough on election day. "What if Hogan loses by 500 votes or 1000 votes?" McDonough asked.
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to run for the Democratic nomination for president in 2016. Del. McDonough noted that the fraud uncovered by VVA occurred on O'Malley's watch.
