Last week some folks were rightly shocked by a segment on WMAL when Dara Fox called into the show to describe rampant voter fraud on behalf of Democrats in the Lodge Precinct of Prince William County. During that segment Fox alleged numerous clear instances of faudulent voting, including multiple votes being cast by the same person, with the acquiescence and in some cases apparent collusion by election workers. I’ve confirmed with the Prince William County Republican Committee that Dara Fox was indeed an inside poll worker at Lodge Precinct and that the chaos of Romney’s poll monitoring program was entirely consistent with the report Dara Fox made.
Here’s that segment as it aired on November 15th.
This report details persons being allowed to vote when they have already been recorded as voting, persons being allowed to cast ballots when they did not know the address they supposedly lived at, persons voting who clearly did not match the physical characteristics of the voter they claimed to be, and most disturbing, elections officials disregarding the law and allowing rather obvious voter fraud to happen right in front of them. When this happens in Chicago or Philadelphia I am not terribly surprised, but here in Prince William County this comes as a complete shock.
Needless to say, this is absolutely outrageous. Unfortunately, with the chaos of having the Romney campaign and the PWCRC running parallel but largely uncoordinated efforts on election day, I have not been able to find any evidence that this is being investigated either with the elections board or by the Commonwealth’s Attorney office. It would surprise me not a bit that the thoroughly corrupt Paul Ebert would turn a blind eye to brazen criminal acts when they might relate to his political party, although the Board of Elections in the county could initiate their own investigation, call on the State Board of Elections for assistance, and if (and only if) SBE asks, request that the Attorney General become involved.
So recognizing the futility of asking the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office to do anything, here is what I am hoping can happen:
1. Anyone actually witnessing (this is very important) these violations of the law, including Ms. Fox, can and should swear out a warrant with a magistrate against elections officials who they observed conspiring with those who committed voter fraud. If you know someone who was a witness, please ask them to file a complaint and assist them in any way that you can. Magistrates can be found at 14598 Donald Custis Drive in Woodbridge, and at the Judicial Complex in Manassas and require you to appear in person to submit a complaint. Corrupt conduct by election officials is a Class 5 Felony in Virginia under § 24.2-1001 of the Virginia Code.
2. Everyone reading this post should email the Prince William Board of County Supervisors using the email bocs@pwcgov demanding that they use whatever resources at their disposal to get the Board of Elections to investigate this matter and request assistance from the State Board of Elections to uncover the truth about these allegations. They may not be aware of this incident, and even if they are the complete inaction since this story broke two days ago suggest we need to light a fire underneath them.
No matter who violates Virginia election laws, for whatever purpose, and despite any excuse should suffer the full legal consequences for their unlawful actions. I don’t care what party they belong to, or what their excuse may be. We must be able to trust the outcome of our elections or our republic dies. Voter fraud is utterly intolerable and apparently it takes you to stand up to it, because so far it seems no one else will.
