Vote Fraud Denier Al Sharpton Committed Vote Fraud
The leader of vote fraud deniers, Al Sharpton,
who has a feature on MSNBC called “Block the Vote,” himself committed vote
fraud. As the Daily Beast reports:
A grand jury report issued by
Democratic District Attorney Elizabeth Holtzman in 1984, which is used at the
very top of Heritage’s history of vote fraud in America, culminates with a
detailed description of the attempted theft of a 1982
congressional election by Sharpton’s then-mentor-and-sidekick Brooklyn state
senator Vander Beatty, who went to jail for orchestrating the largest forgery scheme in
American politics. Sharpton is alleged to have participated in the scheme.
The liberal Daily Beast indicates that
Sharpton “registered at three different addresses
scattered across the [Brooklyn] borough.” In court, Sharpton
violated election law by registering at three addresses because three black
Democratic district leaders wanted to run him against other candidates.
Sharpton was knocked off the ballot.
A Village Voice journalist reported that Sharpton was “forging thousands of signatures on
voter-registration cards to create enough fraud to invalidate” a win by an
opponent of Brooklyn state senator Vander Beatty. A jury that convicted Vander
Beatty found that Beatty used his own orchestrated forgeries as proof of so
many irregularities that two courts overturned his opponent’s win. So
a probable reason Sharpton denies vote fraud when there is so much other evidence of it really occurring is because
he, himself, made up vote fraud in a backhanded strategy to win elections
through the courts instead of by votes fairly cast. (If you doubt that there’s
evidence of vote fraud today, check out the vote fraud map. Just last week, the Associated Press reported that three
individuals in Kentucky pled guilty to vote fraud in federal court. All
three individuals are currently listed on the vote fraud map.)
Ken Shepherd of Newsbusters reported last week,
“All this week MSNBC is giving Politics Nation host Al Sharpton a platform to
attack voter ID laws as a move to ‘Block the Vote’ and keep black voters from
the polls.” MSNBC apparently thinks there’s nothing wrong with giving an
alleged vote fraudster the platform to deny vote fraud exists.
