The stakes in the 2020 presidential election could not be higher. Voter turnout will be crucial for both parties, which has raised serious concerns about possible illegal voting.
And one year out from the election, a new bombshell lawsuit has proven that President Donald Trump was correct about illegal voting taking place in America’s elections.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity watchdog group, filed a lawsuit against the Democrat-controlled city of Detroit.
The suit found that Detroit — in the crucial swing-state of Michigan — has 3,500 deceased individuals still registered to vote and more than 5,000 voters whose names appear twice in the city’s voter rolls.
There are currently 511,786 registered voters in the city with an eligible voting population of just 479,267.
So we’ve got 32,519 people in Detroit alone who are registered to vote when, for various reasons, should not be allowed to cast a ballot.
Why is this such a big deal?
In the 2016 election, Trump received 2,279,543 votes in Michigan compared to Hillary Clinton’s 2,268,839 — which represents a difference of 10,704 votes.
Trump won the swing state by less than 11,000 votes, yet there are 32,519 people in Detroit alone who are registered to vote and should not be.
While speaking to the Washington Free Beacon, PILF’s communications director Logan Churchwell said Democrats did nothing when they presented these numbers to elections officials in Detroit.
“If the Russians or others are indeed coming in 2020, this is how we fight back early. Election integrity requires that we review voting assets and intentionally seek opportunities to harden them,” Churchwell told the Beacon. “When the Foundation hand-delivered these list maintenance leads, they were brushed aside by Detroit. This behavior is precisely what saboteurs rely on before they begin their work.”
This is a nationwide issue.
An audit by PILF also found that nearly 24,000 voter files in Florida’s Palm Beach County have been flagged because of issues that include registrations in multiple states, double voting, voting on behalf of the dead, and registrations by “apparent” noncitizens.
One of the largest counties in Florida — a major swing state in presidential elections — found 24,000 illegal registrations after just one audit.
Consider how many other counties in Florida could potentially have illegal registrations, which may allow thousands of people to double vote.
Here’s another important comparison: Trump won Florida in the 2016 election over Hillary Clinton by 112,911 votes.
Imagine if several other counties have tens of thousands of illegal registrations that could allow people to double vote.
That could have a huge impact on who wins the state in 2020.
It’s not just Michigan and Florida.
A few months ago, it was also reported that at least 1.59 million “inactive” and “illegal” registered names were on voter rolls in one California county.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to have them removed in the County of Los Angeles, and the state of California agreed in court to have them removed from the voter rolls.
This is a very serious issue that affects the entire nation — and it could have a huge impact on the outcome of the 2020 election.
