Several days ago it was reported that the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s office approved a law enforcement investigation into an Democrat aligned election advocacy group called FieldWorks LLC.
Here is what was reported by The Inquirer Daily News less than a week ago:
Pennsylvania state police have raided a Delaware County political field office seeking evidence of possible voter-registration fraud, according to court records.
In a warrant filed late last week in County Court, investigators said they were seeking documents, financial information, and lists of employees at the Norwood office of FieldWorks LLC, a national organization that often does street work for Democrats, records show.
The warrant did not specify the nature of the probe, but said agents also were looking for “templates . . . utilized to construct fraudulent voter registration forms” and “completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms.”
A Delaware County judge on Friday afternoon signed the search warrant, but it was not known when it was executed. The warrant application was approved by the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office. Jeff Johnson, a spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office, declined to comment.
In case you missed it, here’s a brief overview of FieldWorks and exactly the type of work they do for the Democrats. This also isn’t the first time they have been caught in a voter fraud case.
FieldWorks was founded in 2001 and describes itself as a “a nationally recognized grassroots organizing firm founded to help progressive organizations, advocacy groups, and members of the Democratic family take their public engagement and electoral strategies to the next level.”
This isn’t the first time FieldWorks has been caught performing voter fraud, In 2012, “FieldWorks’ voter registration efforts in Ohio sparked some controversy. FieldWorks employees filed thousands of new voter registration cards in the final week before the registration deadline. Some of them were found to be fraudulent. ”
So we have FieldWorks openly admitting they perform advocacy work for “progressive organizations”, which means the Democrats, and we also have a history of voter registration tampering. Not too encouraging considering this group was operating in the highly contested swing state of Pennsylvania this year, on behalf of the Democrats of course, which could end up determining the outcome of this election.
Today, it appears the police raid on their offices has yielded results, as The Inquirer Daily News reports that the investigation has been “widened”.
Days after state agents raided its Delaware County office, a national grassroots organization that works mostly for Democrats is facing increasing scrutiny over voter registration efforts in Pennsylvania.
A source with knowledge of the inquiry said Wednesday the probe of FieldWorks LLC is likely to expand to other spots in the state.
At the same time, Delaware County officials are preparing to challenge thousands of voter registration forms submitted by the group, questioning if they were filed on time. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Friday.
Both developments came after Pennsylvania state police searched FieldWorks’ Norwood office last week seeking, among other things, forms that could be used to “construct fraudulent voter registration forms,” according to court records.
The Attorney General’s Office has declined to discuss its investigation, or say if evidence suggests a plot to cast fraudulent ballots or just attempts by paid canvassers to artificially inflate voter registration numbers.
Officials say it would be difficult for new registrants who used a false name to cast a fraudulent ballot, because such voters must also provide identification that matches registration information.
FieldWorks calls itself a grassroots political firm founded in 2001 to work with “progressive advocacy organizations, federal and state Democratic campaigns, Democratic Party organizations, labor unions, and ballot initiative campaigns.” In ads, it recruits hourly workers for field work. It has said only that it is cooperating with investigators in Pennsylvania and has “zero tolerance for fraud.”In 2012, FieldWorks’ voter registration efforts in Ohio sparked controversy when election officials flagged hundreds of dubious registration forms filed in Hamilton County, including one from a voter registered as “John Adolf Hitler.”
Cincinnati police that year also arrested a former Ohio University student working for FieldWorks on charges of forging 22 signatures on a petition drive. Police at the time said FieldWorks played no role in the man’s scheme to pad his list.
Keep in mind, President Obama stated only a few weeks ago that there was absolutely no election fraud, and that Donald Trump should “stop whining” about it. That’s easy to say when it appears that any potential election fraud taking place is always to the benefit of the Democrats and their candidates.
If one organization is found to be breaking the law in regards to voter registrations and tampering with the presidential election, you can bet that there are other groups doing the same thing that haven’t been caught yet.
Although with Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers dropping rapidly, while Donald Trump continues to surge, no amount of underhanded tactics may be able to save her from a landslide lose on November 8th.
