(TNS) Don’t: POTUS Donald Trump has warned that anyone caught engaging in voter fraud during the upcoming midterm election cycle would face severe legal consequences.
“All levels of government and Law Enforcement are watching carefully for VOTER FRAUD, including during EARLY VOTING,” Trump tweeted. “Cheat at your own peril. Violators will be subject to maximum penalties, both civil and criminal!”

POTUS Trump has been attempting to staunch what he believes is widespread voter fraud since he was elected.
His earliest effort was the formation of a voter fraud commission to investigate the problem, but it was dissolved in January because several states refused to cooperate with the panel by providing voter information.
Democrats have done all they can to thwart the president’s efforts as well as states that are attempting to clean up voter registration rolls and require voters to show proof of identification before casting ballots.
Which should tell you that Democrats a) are involved someway in voter fraud; and b) because the party has to cheat to win.
“Democrats will not push for photo ID requirements to vote because they benefit most from voter fraud,” said Matt C. Pinsker, adjunct professor of criminal justice at Virginia Commonwealth University, The Daily Caller reported.
“Despite Democrat claims that it is practically non-existent, the reality is that in every election there have been numerous irregularities reported, the overwhelming majority of which favor Democrats,” he continued.
“Despite there being numerous incidents every election cycle, Democrats are correct that prosecutions for voter fraud are rare. In large part, this only is because Democrats have purposefully set up a system which deliberately turns a blind eye and prevents any form of detection or screening.”
