Guess how many votes Hillary won VA by. We’ll tell you, she won by 60,000. And how many felons did VA Gov. pardon? That’s right, 60,000. Seems a little too coincidental, don’t you agree?
With the race in Virginia flipping red to blue and back before the eyes of CNN viewers, reports are trickling out that the state’s late close for Hillary Clinton in one of her key “firewall” states was helped by her old friend, the state’s governor Terry McAuliffe.
According to a report in the World Tribune, Gov. McAuliffe “used an autopen to sign thousands of letters granting voting rights to felons, enough to put the swing state in Hillary Clinton’s column.” Governor McAuliffe is a longtime Clinton ally, having served as chairman of both President Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign, and Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign. The report, which first appeared in the Daily Caller, says that “those who received McAuliffe’s letter also got voter registration forms with pre-paid return postage. No others in Virginia received such a service.”
In Nevada, an election official kept the polling place open an extra two hours in a Vegas-area county packed with Latino voters. According to CNN, “a Nevada court judge forcefully denied a request Tuesday from Donald Trump’s campaign to direct a county registrar of voters to preserve and segregate ballots from voting machines in four early voting sites in the Las Vegas area where Latino voters showed up in record numbers.”
Now, a voter fraud group is requesting information on those voters, as Mr. McAuliffe pardoned them with an auto-pen despite a state court’s requirement that an individualized determination be made for each felon.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation wants to ensure the 60,000 felons Mr. McAuliffe pardoned were personally reviewed and approved, per state law.
“Laws no longer matter to powerful people interested in keeping their power,” said J. Christian Adams, President and General Counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, which wants to inspect list maintenance records regarding the tens of thousands of individuals recently given rights by the Governor. “We have asked state election officials to inspect records demonstrating the extent of the Governor’s lawlessness.”
