Texas Poll Worker Tells Undercover Journalist: ‘We’ve Got Tons of DACA Voters’
BY ZACHARY STIEBER
November 7, 2018 Updated: November 7, 2018 Share

A Texas poll worker told an undercover journalist on Nov. 6, that she had seen “tons” of non-citizen voters who weren’t legally supposed to vote.

The female Project Veritas journalist, posing as a girlfriend of a potential Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) voter, told the worker that she was worried her boyfriend wouldn’t be able to vote.

“If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” an election worker told her.


“It doesn’t matter that he’s not a citizen?” she responded.

“No, Don’t pay any attention to that. Bring him up here,” the official said.

Another woman chimed in, telling the journalist that “We got a lot of ’em.”


The journalist asked her for clarification, which she was happy to give.


“From early voter. We’ve got tons of them. Tons of DACA voters. Okay,” the second worker said.

Non-citizens voting in federal elections is illegal. Federal officials have been cracking down on foreign nationals voting, charging 19 people for illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election in August. They faced prison sentences and fines if convicted.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott noticed the undercover video and said he was looking into it.

“I can’t verify if this is accurate. I CAN verify that it will be investigated and if it IS accurate, illegal votes will be tossed out and wrongdoers will be prosecuted,” he said via Twitter.

“I can testify to this video’s authenticity. This was recorded on Election Day in Texas. @Project_Veritas is able and willing to assist in providing any materials to the Attorney General’s office!” Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe responded on the social media website.


Project Veritas also released videos from the midterms capturing poll workers recommending people to vote for Democrats, which is also illegal.

DACA Recipients Urge People to Vote
While some apparently voted illegally, other DACA recipients were aware that voting was illegal for them.

They tried to take other measures, such as urging people who can legally vote to vote.


“People who are able to vote don’t realize just how amazing it is,” Roa Santoyo, who was born in Mexico, told the Daily Texan. “The day I’ll be able to vote is the day I’ll feel like a citizen. Until that day, I won’t feel fully welcome.”

“Laws that affect me—I can’t vote on them even though there are direct implications on me,” Roa Santoya added. “It’s just frustrating.”

Saul Rascon Salazar, a 17-year-old high school senior, told CNS that he hopes people remember DACA recipients when voting. “Keep us in mind,” he said.

Broward and Palm Beach counties are at the center of a brewing Florida recount. Again.
By Maeve Reston, Jennifer Agiesta and Aaron Kessler, CNN


(CNN)Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida are once again at the center of a brewing controversy over vote counting as two of the highest-profile races in the state appear to be headed toward a recount.

In a news conference on Thursday night, Florida Gov. Rick Scott -- who is also the Republican candidate for US Senate in the state -- alleged without providing evidence that there could be rampant fraud in both counties and accused Democrats of trying to "steal" the election.

Scott's campaign and the National Republican Senatorial Committee filed two lawsuits on Thursday, one against the Broward County supervisor of elections, Brenda Snipes, and the other against the supervisor of elections in Palm Beach County, Susan Bucher. The lawsuits allege that the supervisors have not been transparent either about the collection of the vote or about the vote count, in violation of Florida law.

Snipes told CNN she was not aware of Scott's announcement of a lawsuit and was not commenting.

In his news conference, Scott accused the election supervisors of "mysteriously" finding votes and called for a full "law enforcement" investigation, promising to take any legal action necessary.

"Tonight I am asking the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to investigate this immediately, and I am considering every single legal option available," Scott said.

"We've all seen the incompetence and irregularities in vote tabulations in Broward and Palm Beach for years. Well, here we go again," Scott said. "I will not sit idly by while unethical liberals try to steal this election from the great people of Florida."

The campaign for Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, Scott's opponent, said the governor's actions appeared to be "politically motivated."

"The goal here is to see that all the votes in Florida are counted and counted accurately," said Nelson spokesman Dan McLaughlin. "Rick Scott's action appears to be politically motivated and born out of desperation."

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum tweeted in response to Scott that "counting votes isn't partisan — it's democracy. Count every vote.

"President Donald Trump later weighed in, tweeting, "Law Enforcement is looking into another big corruption scandal having to do with Election Fraud in #Broward and Palm Beach. Florida voted for Rick Scott!"

Scott delivered his blistering statement at the governor's mansion in Florida. His role as chief executive will surely raise conflict-of-interest concerns.

He did not take questions at the news conference.

Discrepancies in Broward County

His news conference comes amid questions over discrepancies in the vote tallies in Broward County.

A CNN analysis of votes cast in Broward County suggests that ballot design could be responsible for a substantial difference in the number of votes cast between the race for governor and the race for senator in Florida, meaning thousands of voters there may have missed their chance to weigh in on the still-undecided Senate race. The placement of the Senate race on the ballot could have made it possible to overlook.

Broward and Palm Beach counties became infamous for vote-counting problems during the 2000 presidential recount.

Fueling the controversy on Thursday, a teacher said she found a box marked "provisional ballots" in a storage area of the school long after the voting had taken place there Tuesday.

Lakeisha Sorey, a resource teacher at Sunshine Elementary School who has taught in Broward County schools for 16 years, said it looked like a plastic storage bin with a hole on the top with a printed label that said "provisional ballots" taped on the box. In a telephone interview with CNN on Thursday night, she said she took a picture but did not try to open or lift the box, because she did not want any questions.

"I did not touch it," she said. "I knew that the elections were a federal thing, so I didn't want any of those issues. I didn't want there to be any interference."

Dozel Spencer, the Broward County Elections Voter Equipment Center director, told CNN that this was equipment, not ballots. He said it takes several days to pick up equipment after Election Day.

Broward is a Democratic-leaning county. Among those who did vote in the Senate race there, 69.1% backed Nelson, while 30.9% backed Scott.
Gubernatorial candidate Gillum topped Republican former Rep. Ron DeSantis in the county by a similar share of the vote (68% for Gillum to 31.3% for DeSantis), but he earned about 10,000 more votes from the county.

Nelson trails Scott in the Senate race by about 15,000 votes statewide, and the race is likely heading for an automatic recount because the margin is so narrow.

Overall, as of Thursday, nearly 25,000 voters in the county had cast ballots for governor but skipped voting in the Senate race, according to a CNN analysis of precinct-level results. Photos shared on Twitter of the ballot used in Broward show the races for Senate and the county's congressional districts in the lower left corner of the paper ballot, below lengthy instructions on how to vote. The candidates for governor were listed more prominently to the right of the instructions.

In neighboring Miami-Dade, where a sample ballot posted online suggests the Senate race appeared at the top, there were more votes cast for Senate than there were for governor. Across all 67 counties in the state, Broward's is the largest difference in votes cast between the two races, by more than 23,000 votes.

Across the 547 precincts in the county where both the Senate race and a congressional race were on the ballot, a comparison of the total votes cast in the governor's race and the Senate and congressional races shows a nearly identical dropoff for the two federal races in 127 of them, meaning that nearly all voters in those precincts who skipped the Senate race also skipped the congressional race.

That suggests those voters may not have seen the two races in the bottom left corner of the ballot. Across all precincts with both Senate and congressional races in the county, roughly 3% of people skipped voting in the Senate race even though they had voted for governor.

In the part of the state represented by Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, who ran unopposed, it is likely that no House race appeared on the ballot, as Florida law does not require votes to be counted in unopposed contests. That would leave the Senate race on its own in the bottom left corner of the page.

In precincts that are part of that congressional district, the dropoff rate was even higher, with roughly 10% of people who voted in the governor's race not voting for Senate.

'Broward County is the laughingstock'

Sorey, the teacher who found the box labeled "provisional ballots," said Broward County needed to improve its handling of ballots.

"We need to get it together, especially in Broward County," Sorey said of the elections system.

After finding the box at the elementary school, Sorey contacted her friend, Democratic state Rep. Shevrin Jones, who attended the Harvard Kennedy School's Senior Executives in State & Local Government program with Sorey's husband.
Jones called the Broward Elections Department. When he told the elections official about the box labeled provisional ballots, he said the official on the phone told him the box merely contained "ballot paper."

Jones said he did not understand how the elections official would know what the contents of the box were, or why the box appeared to be locked, without having someone physically check it.

"I don't know how they would be able to determine that there was nothing in the box just from pictures they had seen or just from me having a conversation with them," Jones said in a telephone interview Thursday night.

Jones said that no one from the Broward County election called him back to tell him whether the box had been checked or picked up.

"It could still be in the storage area," Jones said. "It's so baffling. It's so bad."

"There has to be a better way in how we are administrating when it comes to the election process, especially now," Jones said. "We are 48 hours after the election and we are in a total cluster mess-up. It's unfortunate that we are in this situation again -- Broward County is the laughingstock of the country."
Correction: This story has been updated to correctly reflect that the two highest-profile races in the state appear to be headed toward a recount, not a runoff as originally stated.

CNN's Rosa Flores and Ryan Nobles contributed to this report.

To me it looks like fraud when the Democrats are never, ever mad that tens of thousands of votes for their candidate were "missed" on the first count.

Nobody ever feels their wrath for not getting all ballots to the counters like, you know, actually on election day . . .

Wild scene as fed-up Floridians show up to Broward election office demanding answers – and justice

November 9, 2018 | Frieda Powers | Print Article

The scene in Florida continued to escalate in the wake of accusations and a voter fraud lawsuit filed against Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes by Governor Rick Scott.

Crowds gathered outside the Broward elections office where the canvassing board was preparing to meet on Thursday, chanting “Lock her up!”

Snipes is under fire for alleged election rigging as the county’s election office, in a Democratic bastion, suddenly “found” 78,000 new votes since Election Day.

As the state faces looming recounts in key races after razor-thin margins separated candidates on Tuesday, questions are swirling about Florida’s election laws and whether, as Republicans contend, Democrats are working overtime to “steal” the election. The hashtag #StopTheSteal is accompanying social media discussions as ballots were recounted and inconsistencies revealed.

Progressive candidate Tim Canova joined other voices pointing out the questionable results coming from the southern portion of the Sunshine State, calling Snipes, a Democrat, a “serial election rigger.”

Protesters began to arrive in force at the Broward elections office Friday, demanding action against Snipes and Democrats and the “lack of transparency,” as called out by Scott, whose US Senate race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson is facing a recount.

“The Supervisor is unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed,” Scott’s lawsuit alleged.

Hunter Pollack, who lost his sister Meadow in February when she was gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, urged others to join the stand against corruotion.

The Miami Herald’s Alex Harris reported that Snipes refused to take questions Thursday even though she had promised to do so after a meeting.

Angry Floridians are demanding answers and refusing to stay silent as the races in question all just happen to be challenged by Democrats.

A woman in a T-shirt supporting Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum showed up and was shouted down by the crowd. The governor’s race between Gillum and Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis is heading to a machine recount as 0.44 percentage points separated the two as of Thursday night, with DeSantis in the lead, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Meanwhile the questionable actions in Broward continue to be under scrutiny.

“Here’s what makes no sense: Where did the 70,000 ballots come from in Broward County? Where did the 15,000 ballots come from in Palm Beach County?” Scott said Friday in Naples, according to Florida Today. “So you’re not telling us. I’ve asked for FDLE to do an investigation. I mean, it just, it makes no sense. We have to be naive to believe that they’re not trying to steal the election.”

As protesters were kept outside Friday afternoon, lawyers for Republicans and Democrats were arriving for a scheduled Canvassing Board meeting.

“I will not stand idly by while unethical liberals try to steal an election,” Scott said at a press conference Thursday night at the governor’s mansion.

It's about time the Right stands up and fights for what's right.

They just threw the provisional ballots in with the real ballots, those two women are going down this time.

The story reeks of bull****. How would the poll worker know the voters are DACA recipients or not? I know in my state the only thing the poll workers ask for is my name, ID and party affiliation if its a primary. I tell them my name, show my ID, and tell them my party affiliation if its a primary. The poll workers pop out a list of names, find my name, ask me to sign next to my name and hand me a ballot, pen and a I voted sticker. So I find it hard to believe a poll worker would know who is and isn't a DACA recipient. After all they don't put that information on the voter sign in sheet and I doubt anyone would actually tell her that they can't legally vote.

Notice something?...

Or should I say, notice something that's NOT there?...



Lefty media never (as in "NEVER!") do any undercover investigating to make sure voting is on the level...

What happens when a Muslim goes to a NASCAR event?...Oh sure...

What's going on with the bath salt industry?...Of course...

Making an actual series where bosses go undercover in their own companies?...That's a no-brainer...

But when it comes to the possibility that illegals are...well...illegally voting, ABC, NPR, NBC, CNN, CBS, the New York Times, and the rest of the Leftwing megaphones just gosh-darn-it can't find the time to look...Or even worse, look out their office windows and say "I don't see any illegal voting...Let's write a report saying it doesn't happen."...
