Di Leo: The Truth about Vote Fraud Finally Begins to Arise from the Mist



By John F. Di Leo – Ballot drop box WA

The state of Georgia made some news this week in the arena of election fraud, issuing a flurry of subpoenas in their statewide investigation of the 2020 elections.

The mainstream press didn’t cover it; there was a baseball game. 

And in each of the 72 weeks before that, whenever there was important news about the abuse of our election system, there was always something equally important.  The Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard defamation trial.  Will Smith slapping a comic at the Oscars.  A sixty-year-old model posing nude to combat “ageism” – whatever that is. 

As Roseanne Roseannadanna would say, “It’s always something. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.”

This is a nation of over 300 million people.  The press can always find something with which to fill up the front page, so they can wring their hands and say “there’s just no room” for hard news. And one thing is certain: the growing epidemic of election fraud is the hardest news there is.

We have probably always had some level of election fraud, but it’s always been a terribly difficult thing to cover.  It usually happens, by definition, in tiny numbers, one by one, or maybe two by two.

The political machine’s precinct captain who notices that a mother-in-law died at the house on the corner, and a son grew up and moved out across the street, so he pulls absentee ballots and illegally casts votes in their names because they’re still on the voting rolls.

The crooked campaign worker who passes out packs of cigarettes or bottles of hooch to people on skid row – or the worker who brings box lunches to a family home – in exchange for their absentee ballots.

The businessman – or even candidate – with homes in two states, who likes to vote from both addresses in the same election – one in person, one by absentee.

The legal immigrants who are still on their green cards – not yet having earned their citizenship – who are mailed a voting card as soon as they get a driver’s license… and being new to this country, they don’t realize that the card was a mistake, and they really can’t legally vote… so they do.

All these situations have been happening for generations.  Add them all together, and you have substantial numbers.  In a country this large… hundreds of thousands? Certainly.   Millions?  Probably.  Tens of millions?  Maybe, maybe not. Who knows?  But dismissing the possibility outright is irresponsible.

Still… they all happen one by one. It’s hard to build a case, hard to prove such crimes and get people excited about it.  We’ve been telling ourselves that this sort of thing is rare for so long, we want to believe that it’s not enough to make a difference, so that’s what we tell ourselves.

Besides, when Will Smith slaps Chris Rock, there’s a photo. There’s even video. There are lots of tweets, and interviews, and speeches, and sound bites, that can take that one incident and magnify it until it dominates the news for weeks.

Hmm.  Come to think of it, vote fraud could do the same, if we wanted to.  A good news reporter could do quite a story on the demographics who are farmed for votes – the immigrants, both legal and illegal, the bums, both addicted and mentally ill, the wealthy people with multiple homes, the college students whose old dorm addresses are all put to use, again and again, by a corrupt political system.

But most reporters don’t want to do a story like that. It would reflect poorly on the Democrats, since everybody knows that’s the party that conducts 99% of the fraud.  And most reporters try harder to be good Democrats today than they ever try to be good journalists.

But all those methods have been around for generations, anyway. They’re not “news.”

Don’t get me wrong; it still happens, more than ever.  But there are more exotic, high-volume methods available now than there ever were before.

Nowadays, there are political machines – like New Orleans and Chicago and more, rumor has it – that rent buses for the day and fill them with 40 patronage workers and their families, so the bus can travel from polling place to polling place and cast 40 ballots per polling place, all day long.  “Here, say you’re Dolly Dobson of 123 Center St.  Here, say you’re Bob Brummel of 255 Center Street.”  A good bus can fabricate 400 votes or more in one day that way… and they’ll never snitch, because there are all these witnesses who saw each other doing it.

Nowadays, there are hundreds of thousands of people in senior care centers, memory care centers, nursing homes for the mentally or physically handicapped.  The administrators of such places control the mailrooms; they can order absentee ballots on behalf of their wards, and cast them themselves.  There’s a reason why voting turnout in such places approaches 100%, every time.  The fact that 90% of these voters don’t know what day it is, let alone know who they’re voting for… well, we won’t talk about that. It’s just too sad.

Nowadays, there are states that mail millions of ballots all over the state, to every address, to every person who lives there, AND to every person who was registered as living there a year ago, five years ago, ten years ago, twenty years ago.  All these ballots can just be filled in and mailed out.  Two people might live in a house today, but a dozen ballots arrive in the mail.  Republicans will curse the empty space, and rip up the extras.  But Democrats?  Democrats might fill them in, and mail them in, and nobody will know.  Will they all cheat? Will every Democrat who gets one take the opportunity to commit a crime? Of course not. But many will.  Enough will.

Nowadays, there are states that install great big ballot boxes on street corners.  People can deliver their ballots to these boxes.  People can deliver the ballots of their family members to these boxes.  Illegally, people can deliver the ballots of neighbors and strangers to these boxes. Even more illegally, people can deliver the ballots that were filled out by hand, in basements and offices and campaign headquarters and nonprofits, by the twos and threes, by the fives and tens, adding up to thousands, and tens of thousands.

Much of this used to be speculation. We knew it happened, and there were convictions to prove that it happens. There have always been plenty of convictions. 

But even if you convict five people of stealing thirty votes, that’s just thirty votes.  Even if you convict ten of stealing a hundred votes, that’s just a hundred votes. In a nation of some 330 million people, who can blame the pundits for saying it’s a drop in the bucket, not worth paying attention to?

They didn’t count on technology.

The Heritage Foundation’s Election Integrity Project.  The books of John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky. The work of individual activists at the state level, like Alan D Vera in Texas. The work of national organizations like True the Vote.

And now, the latest accomplishment: the movie “2000 Mules,” a documentary collaboration between Dinesh D’Souza and True the Vote, which has used indisputable modern technology, such as cellphone pings and the government’s own cameras, to identify millions of ballots illegally harvested, trafficked, and cast in 2020.

This movie only concentrates on one kind of fraud: the millions of fabricated and illegally coerced votes cast by 2000 identified mules in the battleground states.

But there is so much more.  Add all the types of fraud together, and it’s hard to imagine that Republicans ever manage to win any elections. 

Hmm.  Maybe that’s why, in some states, they don’t.

With the release of “2000 Mules,” several states in which reluctant politicians have been slow-walking the 2020 investigations are now waking up, and speeding up, realizing at last that they had better take all this seriously.

There were many voices in the wilderness over the past fifty years, shouting that vote fraud was growing, but we could be dismissed.

No longer. 

Much of modern technology is held in the tight grip of the Left.  But technology itself is nonpartisan, and objective.  The facts are facts. And once they get out, there’s no stopping them.

Watch for Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and others to start waking up.  Their politicians are beginning – just beginning, mind you – to realize that a system that enables a criminal organization to steal an election from Donald Trump is a system that could steal an election from them, too.

  1. Excellent commentary John. The left and the media dismiss voter-election-ballot fraud just as you said; that it’s insignificant. However, it is rampant as you said. I am having a hard time believing at 10:30 PM on Nov 3, 2020 Trump was comfortably ahead and had an 80% chance of winning the election. I wake up the next morning to find out otherwise.
