What is up with the city of Philadelphia? It seems like every time we hear about a charge of election tampering or voter fraud, it’s happening here. The city is completely controlled by Democrats. Coincidence?
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports:
Election fraud charges filed in 197th District special election
Four members of an election board were charged Monday with intimidating voters, casting bogus ballots, and falsely certifying the results in their polling place during a March 21 special election for the state House’s 197th District.
Those charged include Dolores Shaw, 61; Calvin Mattox, 52; Thurman George, 57; and Wallace Hill, 60. The four — all Democrats — manned the ballot machines at the Esperanza Health Center at Kensington and Allegheny Avenues in the 43rd Ward, one of the polling places where complaints about illegal electioneering were lodged.
Attorney General Josh Shapiro said the charges should “draw a very clear line ahead of next week’s election.”
One elderly couple, both Republicans, cast their ballots together, but only one of the votes was recorded, while the other appeared to have been replaced with a write-in vote for the Democrat in the race, Shapiro said.
A voter intending to cast a ballot for the Green Party candidate was told the ballot machine was broken and later was cursed at when he returned to try again, Shapiro said. Another voter supporting the Green Party candidate was aggressively questioned when he tried to bring someone into the polling booth to assist him, as allowed by law.
Democrats are so desperate to cling to power in this city that they’ll cheat to do it. How sad.
