Q&A of the Day – Prosecuted Voter Fraud From 2020 Election Cycle 


Today’s entry: Heard you say there have been 50+ voter fraud cases prosecuted from 2020. Never have heard about those (surprise). Where were they? 

Bottom Line: Yes, you’re right. As part of my breakdown of 2000 Mules last week, I said this: Voter fraud is real. It is a concern. There are 53 criminal convictions for voter fraud which have resulted from the 2020 election cycle. Additionally, we have cases like the 156 referred but unpursued in Florida. We need to get to the bottom of them. In Florida, that should soon start to happen. As of July 1st, Florida’s new election integrity law will be in force with a newly created state enforcement division which will be able to investigate those alleged voter fraud cases unpursued by local prosecutors. As for the 53 criminal convictions for voter fraud since the 2020 Election cycle began – here's where they’ve occurred: 

  • 14: California 
  • 5: Arizona 
  • 4: Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas 
  • 3: Michigan, New Hampshire, West Virginia 
  • 2: Virginia, New Jersey, New Mexico 
  • 1: Colorado, Kansas, Mississippi, Nevada, Ohio, Louisiana, Wisconsin 

53 criminal convictions for voter fraud across 18 states. You’ll notice that far and away California leads the way with evidenced voter fraud. At the same time, you’ll notice a slew of swing states, including Florida, among the next states down. Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, Texas, Michigan, New Hampshire – all key 2020 swing states. In fact, 11 of the 18 states with voter fraud convictions since 2020 are swing states. So yeah, voter fraud is real, and it is pervasive. It also typically takes a while for these cases to be brought and successfully prosecuted. Fifteen of the voter fraud convictions have happened thus far this year. And there almost certainly will be more. This is why it's important to focus on combating provable fraud as opposed to unproven speculation. When so much attention is paid to what can’t or at least hasn’t been proven – it takes away from the reality of what has been and allows mainstream news media and their allies on the left to shift focus away from evidenced voter fraud. And as for the type of evidenced voter fraud committed since the onset of the 2020 cycle: 

  • 19: Absentee Ballot Fraud 
  • 8 (each): Ballot Petition Fraud & Duplicate voting 
  • 6 (each): False Registrations & Ineligible Voting 
  • 4: Impersonation 
  • 1 (each) Illegal “Assistance” at Polls & Altered vote count (by an election official) 

Far and away absentee, or vote-by-mail ballots were the top choice for evidenced voter fraud. This lends credence to the reforms made to tighten up security and drop box locations in states like Florida, Georgia and Arizona. But all told eight different types of voter fraud have been evidenced and successfully prosecuted – right down to having to be concerned with a possible inside job within an election office. And while there hasn’t been anywhere near the level of legally evidenced fraud sufficient to overturn the 2020 Presidential election results, there have been two local election results which changed as a result of identified illegal voting – one of which was in Florida, with the other in Mississippi.  

While I know my breakdown of 2000 Mules wasn’t what some wanted to hear – there's enough here that’s worth focusing on and addressing, without revisiting what’s already been investigated and cleared by officials, even if suspicious. The better news is that 19 states have passed election integrity laws since the 2020 election cycle – including several where criminal convictions for voter fraud took place and were in the crosshairs of presidential election outcomes – Arizona and Georgia. That’s what’s most important here. Prosecute what can be proven and enhance election integrity growing forward based on what we’ve learned.
