If Jill Stein’s sham recount effort has proven anything, it’s that Democrat voter fraud is a very real and very prevalent issue.

Discrepancies have turned up all over Detroit, a city that the American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson describes as “a city controlled by Democrats as long as most Americans have been alive.”

Last week, there were concerns about the number of votes not matching the voter rolls in Detroit, to the point where they were in danger of not being counted in the recount at all.

Now reports indicate that well over a third of the precincts, in a city where 95% of the votes were cast for Hillary Clinton, had more votes than actual voters.

Let that marinate for a moment – 37% of the precincts in a Hillary-dominated city had more votes than voters.

Via the Detroit News:

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. (snip)

“There’s always going to be small problems to some degree, but we didn’t expect the degree of problem we saw in Detroit. This isn’t normal,” said Krista Haroutunian, chairwoman of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers.

A few weeks prior to the election, the Trump and Clinton campaigns exchanged barbs over the potential of voter fraud occurring in Michigan.

Chairman of the Michigan Democrat Party, Brandon Dillon, said Trump’s “totally unfounded” claims about voter fraud are the words of a candidate who knows he will lose on Nov. 8.

Trump’s campaign meanwhile expressed concern over a “rigged” election system, driven by “large-scale voter fraud” including voting by dead people.

So which campaign was correct – Clinton’s, who claimed charges of voter fraud are unfounded or Trump’s, who repeatedly railed against a rigged system?

 

The Michigan Secretary of State‘s election director has since announced plans for an audit of the election results.

Turns out accusations of voter fraud by Democrats have at least been ‘founded’ enough to warrant a city-wide audit.
