Mail-in ballots are a major ingredient in getting away with voter fraud, according to a New York Post report, which quoted a Democratic political operative from New Jersey who claims he has been beating the system for years.
The Post did not name its source, saying the operative fears prosecution if his name is revealed. He has been involved in elections at all levels in multiple places across New Jersey, as well as races in New York and Pennsylvania.
The source’s “identity, rap sheet and long history working as a consultant to various campaigns were confirmed” by the Post.
“The smaller the race, the easier it is to do,” the operative said about committing fraud.
So how does that play in the 2020 election in which President Donald Trump has claimed that mass mailing of ballots is going to lead to fraud, while Democrats push back against him?
The operative noted that impacting the right contests can have a consequence far greater than the number of ballots involved.
And New York state already knows a thing or two about mail-in voting going off the rails. About 84,000 mailed-in votes were thrown out in the state’s June Democratic primary.
The operative stressed that ignorance will not be bliss when the ballots have all been cast.
“This is a real thing,” he said. “And there is going to be a f—ing war coming Nov. 3 over this stuff. … If they knew how the sausage was made, they could fix it.”
The operative said although making ballots is as simple a getting access to a good copier, the required return envelopes are “more secure than the ballot. You could never recreate the envelope.”
So just like flim-flam men who go house to house to defraud the unsuspecting, his team would hit the neighborhoods, talking voters into giving them the ballots to mail.
