The Director of North Carolina based Voter Integrity Project told Big League Politics that President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for Western District of North Caroline U.S. attorney, R. Andrew Murray is unacceptable based on his willful failure to prosecute voter fraud.
“Last week we took this action to ask President Trump to withdraw the nomination because Mr. Murray refused to prosecute interstate double voters that we investigated and that the State Board of Elections referred to him for criminal prosecution. But he said he was too busy to bother with such low-level crimes,” said Jay Delancy, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel. Delancy is also president of the national Election Integrity Alliance, a nonprofit established to empower other state-based election integrity organizations.
The VIP has triggered dozens of criminal referrals for vote fraud and has so far secured two convictions: One in Tennessee and one in North Carolina,” the air force veteran said.
Two of the cases that Delancy said are an example of Murray’s refusal to root out voter fraud involved, Janelle R. Jenkins and Sammy K. Nichols of Mecklenburg County, who the VIP determined had voted in Florida and North Carolina.
The Jenkins and Nichols cases were discovered by citizen election reform advocates frustrated at the lack of seriousness their investigations bring. “Imagine what the government could do if they looked,” he said.
Because of Murray’s refusal to prosecute Jenkins, Nichols and others, Delancy, who started working on voter fraud in his state in 2012, said he is calling for a special prosecutor. “If President Trump is serious about fighting vote fraud, then he should withdraw Andrew Murray’s nomination for US Attorney.”
Concerned citizens in voter integrity and reform groups are frustrated by the lack of prosecutions and seriousness their cases see in court, he said.
Megan C. McDonald, a community liaison coordinator in Murray’s office gave Big League Politics a statement on behalf of the Mecklenberg district attorney:
The Voter Integrity Project has asserted that the fact that someone cast two ballots is proof enough of intent. That is not supported by the law. State law says it is unlawful “for any person with intent to commit a fraud to register or vote at more than one precinct or more than one time, or to induce another to do so, in the same primary or election, or to vote illegally at any primary or election.” This means that to prosecute someone for double voting, this office must prove that the person actually intended to fraudulently vote at more than one precinct.
In the Jenkins case, McDonald said the woman, in this case, was surprised and frightened by an agent’s appearance at her door. “She was fully cooperative, and she clearly believed she had acted in accordance with the law. And in fact, her vote in Florida was not counted. After a review of the evidence, this office found she did not commit a crime.”
In the Nichols case, McDonald said:
The other case involves a man, now age 69, who travels between North Carolina and Florida and inadvertently voted in both states in the 2012 election. When he was interviewed by investigators about the incident years later, he acknowledged that he had registered and voted in person in Mecklenburg County. He said his son mailed an absentee ballot to him from Florida. He told investigators that he filled out the ballot, and he may have mailed it in error, but he did not recall whether he personally mailed the ballot or whether someone else mailed it for him. He said he thought obtaining his North Carolina driver’s license would have canceled his Florida voting registration. And in fact, when someone registers to vote in North Carolina, a notification generated by the registration system is supposed to be sent to the state in which he was previously registered. In this case, it appeared the man did not have any intention to commit voter fraud.
“The District Attorney’s Office is charged with enforcing the laws of North Carolina and seeking justice,” McDonald said.
“The decision to prosecute a defendant is based solely on the available evidence,” she said. “This office prosecutes crimes of every level every day. But prosecuting people when sufficient evidence does not exist simply for the sake of media attention to the Voter Integrity Project’s cause, as the Project suggested in a press release that this office should do, is simply wrong and unjust. This office does not – and will not – operate that way”
Delancy said Murray’s response to obvious crimes frustrates him.
“Several other referrals have been blocked by hesitant district attorneys, but one case in Florida is still pending that involves a sworn admission of voter impersonation fraud: the kind of voter fraud that would have been prevented if Florida had a real voter ID law, ” he said.
“While proving vote fraud is hard enough, it’s maddening that we cannot get prosecutors to act on our proof,” he said. “The types of fraud we’ve uncovered is non-citizen voting and interstate double voting, but we’ve also found close to 30,000 dead people on the voter rolls, which proved that state election officials were negligent in their list maintenance practice.”
Delancy said he and the advocates at his organization are thrilled that the president has focused on voter fraud by commissioning the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
One of the senior members of the commission, The Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky, said about Trump’s effort that the problem is not the magnitude of voter fraud. “In close or disputed elections, and there are many, a small amount of fraud could make the margin of difference.”
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
