Judicial Watch attorney Michael Bekesha will provide testimony to the Pennsylvania State Government Committee on Voter Fraud regarding two pending bills, HB 934 and HB 647.He will, on behalf of the government watchdog Judicial Watch, focus on voter fraud and how Pennsylvania is attempting to prevent it from occurring during future elections. According to Judicial Watch’s ongoing investigation, ACORN and its various affiliates (most notably Project Vote) have been implicated in at least 35 well-documented election fraud schemes in 17 states.
At last count, approximately 27 states around the country are in the process of passing or have just enacted new laws to prevent voter fraud in the future. As the Supreme Court (Purcell v. Gonzalez, 549 U.S. 1, 4 (2006)) has stated:

Confidence in the integrity of our electoral processes is essential to the functioning of our participatory democracy. Voter fraud drives honest citizens out of the democratic process and breeds distrust of our government. Voters who fear their legitimate votes will be outweighed by fraudulent ones will feel disenfranchised.

The two pending bills seek to require voters to present photo identification before voting. The Supreme Court as well as other courts around the county have held that such a requirement is constitutional and an effective way to safeguard voter confidence and protect the integrity of the electoral process.
