One of the great unintended consequences of Jill Stein’s “Recount 2016” campaign was an increase in attention to the problem of voter fraud. Thanks to Stein, the state House of Representatives in Michigan passed a tough voter-ID bill that includes $3 million for funding of free state identification and birth certificates after over 18,000 voters cast ballots without identification in the presidential election.
And there have been plenty of suspicious findings uncovered. Half of votes in Detroit were found to be ineligible for recount, for instance. And now, here’s another questionable revelation…
Voting machines in more than one-third of all Detroit precincts registered more votes than they should have during last month’s presidential election, according to Wayne County records prepared at the request of The Detroit News.
Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books. Voting irregularities in Detroit have spurred plans for an audit by Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas said Monday.
If you want to know what Wayne County and Detroit have in common – they both overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton.
