California Man Gets Year in Jail for Bribing the Homeless in Illicit Vote Harvesting Scheme

Eight other people have been charged with this crime.

Norman Hall, 62, pleaded guilty last week to participating in an illicit vote harvesting scheme in which homeless people were bribed with cigarettes and money to obtain fraudulent signatures on voter registration forms and ballot referendum petitions.

Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced the charges in Nov. 2018, and the scheme reportedly went on during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles in the state of California. Hall and eight others were implicated in the scheme that targeted unsuspecting individuals in Los Angeles’ Skid Row neighborhood.

“This is voter fraud, which we talk about, and we know it exists, but it isn’t exactly something that patrol officers deal with,” LAPD Detective Meghan Aguilar said in May 2017.

“Democrats in California continue to pretend voter fraud doesn’t exist,” Matt Fleming, spokesman for the Republican Party of California, said via email. “However, this incident highlights the need for more investigation of claims.”

Other defandants who have yet to enter a guilty plea for their alleged crimes include Kirkland Kauzava Washington, 38; Harold Bennett, 53; Louis Thomas Wise, 36; Richard Howard, 62; Rose Makeda Sweeney, 42; Christopher Joseph Williams, 59; Jakara Fati Mardis, 35; and Nickey Demelvin Huntley, 44. Other defendants could face up to six years in jail if they are convicted.

Liberals have largely ignored concerns about ballot harvesting, while conservatives have exposed how the process has helped Democrats exploit the poor and needy to remain in power:

Vote harvesting occurs when third parties — like campaign workers — collect absentee ballots from voters and deliver them to election officials…

The vote-harvesting issue arises in the District of Columbia and the 27 states that allow anyone to pick up an absentee ballot from a voter and deliver it to election officials…

Allowing individuals other than the voter or his immediate family to handle absentee ballots is a recipe for mischief and wrongdoing. Neither voters nor election officials can verify that the secrecy of the ballot was not compromised or that the ballot submitted in the voter’s name by a third party accurately reflects the voter’s choices and was not fraudulently changed by the vote harvester. And there is no guarantee that vote harvesters won’t simply discard the ballots of voters whose political preferences for candidates of the opposition party are known.

It also gives campaign and political party intermediaries the ability to influence voters while they are casting a ballot out of election officials’ sight and without any supervision by them.

Thus, there is no one present to ensure that voters are not being coerced, intimidated, threatened or paid for their vote.

With the high-stakes election coming up in November that will ultimately determine the future of the country, liberals will be using vote harvesting measures and other illicit schemes in order to wrestle power away from the conservative majority.

Prominent Trump Backers Join Progressive Leftists to Sign Letter Urging the President to Pardon Julian Assange

Trump must act while there is still time.

Published

President Donald Trump is being urged by a bipartisan coalition to pardon whistleblowers’ advocate Julian Assange, who is facing charges under the Espionage Act for reporting accurately on war crimes and other heinous government and corporate abuses.

The WikiLeaks founder has been brutalized in a hellish super-max prison in Britain awaiting possible extradition to the U.S. for nearly two years now. Trump has a chance to foil the deep state’s plans to make an example of Assange and set the precedent for other journalists to be attacked in a similar manner.

An eclectic mix of individuals, including hardcore Trump backers, far-left civil liberties activists, former Nobel Prize winners, and current and former heads of state, have signed onto a letter imploring the president to pardon Assange.

The letter, which was delivered in December, urges President Trump to put a “defining stamp on your presidential legacy by pardoning Julian Assange or stopping his extradition.” It was signed by veteran right-wing operatives Roger Stone and Dinesh D’Souza, both of whom received pardons from the president.

The former presidents of the Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Switzerland, Columbia and Brazil also signed the letter. Other signatories include former Nobel Laureates Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi and Rigoberta Menchú.

“The US prosecution of Assange is unprecedented: he faces 175 years in prison for the same publications for which he has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This prosecution threatens the constitutional protections that Americans hold dear. By offering a pardon, to put a stop to the prosecution of Assange, your presidency will be remembered for having saved First Amendment protections for all Americans,” the letter stated.

Other notable signatories on the letter include Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), actress Pamela Anderson, film director Oliver Stone, Gateway Pundit founder Jim Hoft, best-selling libertarian author Tom Woods, and many others.

Big League Politics has reported on Assange’s detention after the informational titan had been arguably the most influential media personality responsible for Crooked Hillary’s stunning defeat in 2016:

Former Texas Republican and ‘god father’ of the tea party movement Ron Paul thinks the deep state may be out to shut WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange up permanently.

The 83-year-old liberty icon spoke out about the ongoing abuse of Assange by U.K. authorities on an edition of his “Ron Paul Liberty Report” broadcast earlier today. Paul believes the mistreatment of Assange is undergoing is a ‘tragic story’ emblematic of how the deep state treats whistle-blowers.

Paul compares the treatment of Assange by U.K. authorities to how the North Koreans treated U.S. student Otto Warmbier before he died.

“If he had a terminal disease or something happens to him, good, bad, or whatever and he dies in the prison, how would we look a lot different to the North Koreans on the surface?” Paul asked.

Paul noted reports of Assange’s “very very bad” health and feels that U.K. and U.S. authorities want to make an example of the man “for being a journalist” by either killing him or putting him in prison for life…

Nils Melzer, the United Nations’ special rapporteur on torture, visited Assange with two medical professionals who have a background in examining torture victims on May 9. He issued a report on the “the extremely hostile and arbitrary environment” created for Assange.

Melzer claims the U.K, along with the U.S. and Ecuador, are engaging in “relentless and unrestrained campaign of public mobbing, intimidation and defamation against Mr. Assange.”

Assange was ejected from the Ecuadorean embassy in the UK after his asylum status was revoked in April. He was previously isolated from society under house arrest there for seven years.

The detention of Assange shows that no good deed goes unpunished in this cruel, backward world. President Trump has a chance to salvage his legacy if he pardons Assange. If Trump fails in this regard, the deep state will have escaped his four-year term without any major push back against their unconstitutional overreach.
