Elder Patriot – Thank God for Judicial Watch and its president Tom Fitton.
They’ve scored another victory in the war against voter fraud.
If you think the Obama administration’s only transgression was to direct the weaponization of the FBI to target Donald Trump, you’re mistaken.
Voter fraud is only one of many ways leftists have corrupted our elections. Charges of voter fraud have been widely discussed for decades.
Could there be a greater threat to our republic than corrupt elections?
You’d think that the Department of Justice, given that its mission is to enforce the law in defense of the American people, would have aggressively pursued the enforcement of the National Voter Registration Act. But, you’d be wrong.
As with almost everything under his control – or the control of his appointees – if there was an advantage to be gained with which to advance his leftist agenda, Obama was quick to embrace it.
Not so with Judicial Watch that works with only a small fraction of the budget the Justice Department is allotted. And, Judicial Watch is largely, if not completely, supported by its donors.
The court ruling comes in the Judicial Watch lawsuit filed July 18, 2017, against Montgomery County and the Maryland State Boards of Elections under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA).
.@TomFitton: “After our successful efforts to bring KY, CA, OH & IN into compliance w/Natl Voter Registration Act, it’s time for MD politicians to stop the politics, see the light, get right with the law & clean up the State’s voter rolls.”

At issue is the provision in the NVRA that requires states to take reasonable steps to clean up its voting rolls and to make documents about its voter list maintenance practices available to anyone who asks.
Judicial Watch was seeking the Maryland voter list data after discovering that there were more registered voters in Montgomery County than citizens over the age of 18 who could register – a certain recipe for fraud.
“Now that the court has cleared the way for Judicial Watch to obtain the Montgomery voter data, our efforts to force the State of Maryland to comply with the NVRA and clean up its voter rolls may proceed,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
In the California case alone, Fitton had announced that LA County was forced to send notices to as many as 1.5 million inactive voters who were still on the county’s voter rolls.
That’s a massive number for a single county. Fitton estimated that nationwide there may be as many as 3.5 million names on voter rolls who shouldn’t be there.
Our research suggests that California, by itself, has more than 3.5 million such ineligible registered voters. That would equal, or surpass, the margin of Hillary Clinton’s popular vote advantage in the 2016 presidential election.
Project Veritas caught Clinton operative Robert Creamer on camera.
Creamer: “We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you fuckin’ assholes [Republicans] for fifty years, and we’re not going to stop now.”
CRISIS: I estimate at least 900,000 aliens illegally voted in midterms. And border crisis will make voter fraud worse! @RealDonaldTrump is right to be concerned about voter ID. Only 10 states have strict voter ID laws and there is NO citizenship verification to register to vote. pic.twitter.com/XhIwo4cgZE

The DOJ’s failure in taking the lead on this is just one more indication that it has become little more than an expensive taxpayer funded government agency whose mission has become protecting itself, and other government agencies from having the rampant, Obama-era corruption exposed.
