Non-Citizens Caught Voting in a Swing State in 2012
There is, undoubtedly, more where this came from.
Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution.
The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation's leaders.
Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.
President Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.
As part of Ohio's efforts to clean up the voting rolls, election officials discovered that more than 257,000 dead people were still listed as active voters. Their names and status, Husted said, have since been removed.
In addition, election authorities note they have drastically reduced the number of duplicate registrations, from 340,000 in 2011 to just four this past November -- and that more than 370,000 Ohio voters who have moved have been contacted to update their voting information.
The Obama administration opposes efforts to make sure that only eligible citizens are voting, and that we vote only once. Obama/Holder are still fighting against voter ID, and the administration has fought Florida as that state tried to clean up its voter rolls.
Do the math. This administration doesn't want clean elections for some reason.
