Prosecutor Has Proof Of Republican Election Fraud And He’s Taking Them Down For It

Published

President Donald Trump somehow likes to make a huge fuss about how elections are unfair and things were stacked against him in his race to become President of the United States and leader of the free world, in spite of the fact that it is him and the GOP who are constantly being accused of collusion. Now, though, it seems those accusations might be about to develop into something more:

A special prosecutor filed two charges of election fraud against a campaign staffer for former Republican congressman Scott Taylor of Virginia but did not say if Taylor broke any laws in a fraudulent ballot-signature scheme. Donald S. Caldwell, the special prosecutor assigned to the case, confirmed that Lauren Creekmore Peabody was charged Monday with two counts of election fraud for allegedly signing petitions that included forged names. “Is there probable cause to believe that violations of Virginia law were committed by one or more persons in the submission of election petitions for Shaun Brown?” Caldwell wrote in a statement issued Monday afternoon.

“Based upon the facts that have been developed at this point in time, the answer to this question is clearly yes.” Caldwell wrote that he found “no collusion” between Taylor and Brown to have her run as an independent in the race. He did find that Taylor met with staffers in his congressional office last June and made the decision to help Brown “by using available campaign resources to circulate petitions on her behalf.” 

This could mark a turning point in the whole debate over elections and democracy and how fair our political system actually is. Electoral accountability is the one thing standing between us and dictatorship, and if we are going to reclaim our liberal democracy from the oligarchs any time soon, any kind of meddling has to be stamped out wherever it is found. That is why it is so encouraging to see people like Caldwell saying what needs to be said and doing what needs to be done, and with such a great sense of urgency. As for those on the other side, they are panicking more and more by the day because they know that the end is near for them. Now that we have wised up to their tricks and practices, they cannot keep hold of what they have for much longer. And, from the point of view of those of us who actually believe in democracy, that is definitely a good thing.
