Fitton: 2020 Election Update
From Tom Fitton’s article for Breitbart:
I take no comfort in saying that we saw this coming. Back in June, for example, I told Lou Dobbs, “It’s been a state by state battle to protect the integrity of our elections. There will be a severe temptation to cheat, and now that’s going to be a lot easier to do because our system is going to be overwhelmed with ballots and applications for ballots.”
“We’ve proven repeatedly – because we’ve been winning in court to clean up voter lists – that the lists across America are filthy in terms of having more people on the rolls than are eligible to vote. And those people, you can be sure, are going to be the groups getting some of these ballots,” I said at the time.
Our most recent research in September revealed that 353 U.S. counties had 1.8 million more registered voters than eligible voting-age citizens. In other words, the registration rates of those counties exceeded 100% of eligible voters!
I have to wonder how much worse it might have been had we not been busy in court. As you know,we are a national leader in seeking cleaner elections.
In 2018, the Supreme Court upheld a voter roll cleanup program that resulted from our settlement of a federal lawsuit with Ohio. California settled a lawsuit with us and last year began the process of removing up to 1.6 million inactive names from Los Angeles County’s rolls. Kentucky also began a cleanup of hundreds of thousands of old registrations last year after it entered into a consent decree to end another Judicial Watch lawsuit. In September this year, we sued Illinois for refusing to disclose voter roll data in violation of federal law.
