Voter fraud in our elections is alive and well

Regarding the Feb. 8 letter, “Where’s investigation into voter fraud?”: I must disagree. President Trump has already stated that Vice President Pence will head up an investigation of voter fraud. And it is evident the writer is unaware of, or has chosen to ignore, Washington state’s own fraud-filled election for the 2004 governor’s office between Republican Dino Rossi and Democrat Christine Gregoire.

To recap this sorry event of “illegal votes”; “lost and found ballots”; “election workers errors and crimes”; and “fraud and litigation” I submit the following: Rossi won the first ballot count, then Rossi won the recount, then several days after the recount, King County produced multiple bags of ballots they had “somehow misplaced.” The addition of these “somehow misplaced” ballots, caused a second recount and gave Gregoire a slight edge and the win. This went to court, and after months of investigation and litigation, Judge Bridges did find that the “somehow misplaced” bags of ballots produced by King County contained ballots for 1,401 convicted felons and 19 dead people. All illegal votes, and all produced by King County Democrats. This is real and factual evidence of voter fraud. If a person were to combine this known and proven election fraud of King County with the Democratic Party’s continued insistence of no voter identification required, it is easy to conclude voter fraud is alive and well, and the writer should be happy that Vice President Pence will be investigating this. But given the Democrat’s track record, be careful of what you wish for!

And finally, to his last statement of “God help us all.” God has helped us — Hillary is not the President.
