A 2005 bipartisan report chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker III concluded “absentee ballots remain the largest source of potential voter fraud.”
Fifteen years later, no one on the left wants to admit this truth. Instead, the Trump Justice Department finds itself in a race against time to ensure the integrity of our elections with concerns over the increased vulnerability mailing ballots poses or the possibility that a foreign country could print tens of thousands of hard to detect counterfeit ballots — to name a couple.
Here are three of the most troubling recent cases of mail-in voter fraud and incompetence.
Military Ballots Discarded
Luzerne County District Attorney Stefanie Salavantis asked the DOJ and FBI to open an investigation into discarded military ballots this week in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. All the ballots found opened were cast for President Trump. In response, the Justice Department is demanding full compliance from the Luzerne County Bureau of Elections to ensure an “accurate election count.” Still, there’s no guarantee these ballots will be counted in the general election.
Trump won Luzerne County by 20 points in 2016. Before that, it hadn’t gone for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988.

“According to the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office, three trays of mail were discovered shortly before 8 a.m. Monday in a ditch along State 96 at Outagamie county CB in Greenville,” the Post-Crescent reported. “The mail was on its way to the post office and the sheriff’s office turned it over to the postal inspector. The mail was mixed and did contain ‘several’ absentee ballots.”
The Postal Service will not disclose how many absentee ballots were recovered.
Then-candidate Donald Trump won Outagamie County by the largest margin in a presidential election since Ronald Reagan’s 1984 landslide.
The Democrats’ Bonnie and Clyde
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced 134 felony charges Thursday against four political operatives over an alleged organized mail-in ballot fraud scheme in a 2018 Democratic primary. The suspects include a couple, Gregg County Commissioner Shannon Brown and his wife, Marlena Jackson.
Fox News has more:
“To increase the pool of ballots needed to swing the race in Brown’s favor, the group targeted young, able-bodied voters to cast ballots by mail by fraudulently claiming the voters were ‘disabled,’ in most cases without the voters’ knowledge or consent,” Paxton’s office alleged.
Of the total charges, 97 felony counts were leveled against Jackson, 30 of them for alleged election fraud.
Many of the charges accuse her of fraudulently marking applications for other people, claiming they were eligible for mail-in ballots due to disabilities when they were not disabled.
