Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election in key swing state

    “Voter fraud doesn’t exist” they said… “Stop being racist” they said…

    Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election — and has referred the case for possible prosecution.

    The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation’s leaders.

    Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.

    “I have a responsibility to uphold election law, and under both federal and state law you must be a citizen to vote,” said Husted, a Republican who has aggressively tried to investigate voter fraud cases in his state.

    Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls.

    President Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.

    As part of Ohio’s efforts to clean up the voting rolls, election officials discovered that more than 257,000 dead people were still listed as active voters. Their names and status, Husted said, have since been removed.

    Okay we have non citizens voting for a presidential candidate that isn't a natural born citizen.

    So what's the problem?

    If they found 17 actual cases and 274 illegals on the voting roles, there are probably a hundred times that many of each, given that the Democratic Party controls county clerks that manage voting in most of Ohio's inner cities, and turn a blind eye to the activity. More than enough to get a corrupt Great Pretender elected last year.
