How Elections Get Stolen

How serious a problem is voter fraud? Without voter fraud, we wouldn’t have Obamacare, says John Fund. He explains that the Democrats acquired the 60th Senate vote they needed to end a filibuster and pass Obamacare after Al Franken was declared the winner of a Senate race in Minnesota by a slim 312-vote margin. But a subsequent examination of the voting rolls showed that at least 1,100 felons had illegally cast ballots in Minnesota.

The Franken election is but one of about 100 cases of voter fraud enumerated by Fund in his new book Who’s Counting: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk. Another serious source for risk: Some 2 million dead people still appear on voting rolls nationwide. “I believe we should honor the dead,” says Fund, “but I don’t believe in representation without respiration.”

Fund touches on voter fraud, as well as proposed ID laws and other efforts to increase ballot security, in a talk with Glenn Reynolds for PJTV’s InstaVision.
