Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White has has blamed a “programming error” following the revelation that over 500 non-U.S. citizens were registered to vote in the 2018 election and may have participated in elections throughout the state.
“While this represents only 1/10 of one percent, it is still not acceptable and we apologize for the error,” White said in a statement obtained by The Hill. “On the same day the programming error was confirmed, it was fixed and won’t happen again.
“We quickly notified the Illinois State Board of Elections along with the 574 people impacted – all of whom are in the country legally,” he added.
White claimed that the errors have been fixed and the problem is no more in his letter, but election authorities and state officials are still worried about the integrity of the elections.
State Republicans are calling for an immediate investigation into the problem to make sure that such a mistake does not happen again.
“Republican state lawmakers join U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis to address integrity of Illinois elections given recent news that more than 500 non-citizens registered to vote under auto-voter registration system,” a tweet from the Illinois state GOP reads.
The “Automatic Voter Registration” bill was signed into law by former Illinois governor Bruce Rauner in 2017, which automatically registers Illinois residents to vote when they receive or renew their driver’s license or ID. While this law may have been well-intentioned, it has seemingly opened the door for non-citizens to participate in elections.
“For whatever reason that technological programming error did not properly remove the individuals,” White said in his letter. “The individuals who are applying for driver’s license were inadvertently pooled into the automatic voter registration.”
The Secretary of State’s office is largely downplaying the error and claiming that further investigations are not necessary.
“We discovered an error, and we fixed it. And then we notified the State Board of Elections and the local election authorities and the individuals that were impacted,” the office said in the statement.
“Even though, in the grand scheme of our election registration numbers and the voting numbers, the figures that we’re looking at are very small,” said Matt Dietrich of the Illinois State Board of Elections. “This issue is significant in terms of we want to make sure there is complete integrity with our automatic voter registration system.”
State Republicans are not willing to let the issue die, fearing that electoral fraud issues may impact races during this year’s important general elections in November.
“I don’t have a lot of confidence in the Secretary of State’s Office right now,” said Illinois State Representative Tim Butler from Springfield.
“He may or may not have known about this, I have no idea. But he needs to be held responsible for it; it’s his operation that allowed this to happen,” he said – demanding for a full investigation into White and his possible complicity in the fraud.
“It simply is inexcusable that non-citizens voted in Illinois and potentially affected the outcome of elections across the state. Those in the Secretary of State’s Office who allowed this to happen should be terminated from their employment with the State,” the state GOP chairman said in a statement.
This may just be the beginning of unprecedented electoral chicanery from Democrats as they grow more desperate to win in the age of President Donald Trump.
Michigan Election Day Whistleblowers Demand for Republicans to Convene Voter Fraud Hearings
Republicans are trying to surrender.
Michigan whistleblowers who have signed sworn affidavits attesting to grotesque electoral fraud by Democrats are demanding to be heard in a legislative hearing similar to what took place in Pennsylvania earlier this week.
“Media says they see no evidence of fraud. Legislative leadership says, “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.” Hundreds of poll challengers who witnessed fraud such as myself beg to differ. We believe that the truth about election needs to finally be heard without a media censorship filter,” former state senator Patrick Colbeck said in a press release.
“The people of Michigan deserve fair, open, transparent elections, and this year, for the first time in decades, their trust in our elections was shattered. If lawmakers fail in this most basic duty to hear the testimony of dozens of not hundreds of eyewitnesses, Michiganders at large will lose faith not only in their electoral process but in their Legislature as well,” said poll worker Adam de Angeli of Milan.
Republican leaders in Michigan are dropping the ball and going along with the dog-and-pony-show scam that the election was fair and square. They are effectively surrendering to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her extreme left-wing corruption, on the election and every other issue.
State representative Matt Hall, who is the leader of the House Oversight Committee, could use his power to convene a hearing to allow whistleblowers to speak out and a proper investigation to occur from there. However, he has refused to do so up until this point, taking cues from House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey.
“We considered it, and we determined that logistically, it wasn’t going to work,” Hall said to Bridge Michigan for why he does not plan to hold a legislative hearing, making up a pathetic excuse to stab his fellow countrymen in their backs.
Big League Politics reported on how it was a top Michigan Republican attorney who voted with Democrats to certify the dubious election results even as countless whistleblowers attested to witnessing a third-world style vote steal:
One Republican on the state board of canvassers, Norm Shinkle abstained from the vote, being too weak to actually oppose electoral impropriety. The other Republican on the state board of canvassers, Aaron Van Langevelde, actually voted with the Democrats to certify election results marred with improprieties and abnormalities.
“We have a clear legal duty to certify the results of the election, as shown by the returns that were given to us,” Van Langevelde said. “We cannot and should not go beyond that. As John Adams once said, ‘We are a government of laws, not men.’”
“This board needs to adhere to that principle and do its part to uphold the rule of law here today. This board must uphold the law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election,” he added.
Van Langevelde received a great deal of support from the liberal media. He also received the backing of the House Republican leadership in the state, who will keep him employed in his cushy role with the party for going along with the façade.
“Aaron has been a very valued member of this team and will continue to be next session,” said Republican Speaker-elect Jason Wentworth of Farwell.
Republican House Speaker Lee Chatfield of Clarklake praised Van Langevelde’s betrayal as a great example of “America at work.”
“As we have been saying consistently for weeks, the Legislature will uphold the law and respect this result as it works to improve the process for next time,” Chatfield said.
Van Langevelde works as a policy adviser and deputy legal counsel for the Michigan House Republican Policy Office. He was effectively carrying out policy from his GOP establishment masters when he joined Democrats to betray his oath of office earlier this week.
Michigan Republicans have urged activists to consider contacting Hall, who frequently claims to be a pro-Trump strong conservative when it benefits his political ambitions, and let him know his career prospects are dead in the water unless he does the right thing and holds hearings immediately.
