• Voter fraud and dirty politics in Illinois are cliches for a reason.

    A day after Kankakee officials announced an investigation into voter fraud, including allegations that “individuals from Chicago” were offering gifts in exchange for votes, the top federal attorney for central Illinois and Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan paid the city a visit.

    Illinois Attorney General’s office spokeswoman Maura Possley said her office is “actively monitoring” the situation.

    Kankakee County State’s Attorney Jamie Boyd disclosed the investigation on Tuesday… Boyd said the investigation was opened in response to allegations that “gifts” were offered to voters by “individuals from Chicago” in exchange for votes for Cloonen, presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and “others…”

    Boyd’s office called the investigation an “unprecedented action” and said it will focus on both vote buying and fraudulent mail ballot application allegations.

  • Another case – more than 20 cases, actually – of voter fraud by an alien illegally registered and voting in multiple U.S. elections:

    A Canadian citizen who lives in Cheektowaga was accused Thursday of voting in more than 20 elections in the United States while illegally living here.

    Shirley Anne Conners, 62, was arrested Thursday on making a false claim to U.S. citizenship to vote, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

    Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian J. Counihan said the defendant, who has been illegally in the United States since the early 1970s, voted in more than 20 federal, state and local elections since 1995, the last being the presidential primary in New York in April.

  • More on the problem of ineligible non-citizens registering and voting, and why “unlike fraudulent voters, non-citizen voters cannot be stopped with voter ID requirements.”

    As Adams notes, once states fail to screen out citizenship verification on the application, “the aliens are getting registered to vote when they are getting their photo ID cards!”
