Meet The Deceased WWII Vet Who Just Registered To Vote in VA
There are a few states in our country that are considered swing states. Further still, there are a few of those swing states that are considered as critical swing states and Virginia is one of them.
FBI and Richmond police started investigating multiple cases of voter fraud after 19 deceased Virginia residents were re-registered to vote, including a World War II veteran, Mr. Richard Allen Claybrook Sr.
According to The Washington Post,
“His family members were very distraught,” said Garst, who confirmed the existence of the FBI and police investigation but said she could provide few details because the case is ongoing.
All 19 were initially registered as voters in the Shenandoah Valley city of Harrisonburg, although a clerk double-checking the entries later raised questions about one. She recognized the name of Richard Allen Claybrook Sr., who died in 2014 at age 87, because his son is a well-known local judge. She happened to recall that the judge’s father had died.
“He was a retired Fairfax County elementary school principal and had fought in World War II,” said his son, retired Harrisonburg General District Court Judge Richard Allen Claybrook Jr. “So our family is very disgusted that they would pick his name, because he was such a law-abiding citizen devoted to public service.”
This is a crucial reason why we need tighter voter ID laws so we can prevent things like this from happening. For goodness sakes you have to show your identification for so many other things in the world, why would you not have to provide your ID before you elect the most powerful person in the country?
Authorities were ultimately able to find the individual who registered the deceased voters. It started on the campus of James Madison University when a private group was working to register voters. It was later discovered that JSU student Andrew Spieles was responsible for the fraudulent registrations.
He was only sentenced to 100 days in prison.
His motive? Well, it's not hard to determine since they were registered to vote for Democrat. Like I've said before, there is no low too low that the Democrats won't stoop to in order to try and take power over the people.
