Oh My: Pennsylvania State Police Raid Democratic-Affiliated Grassroots Group Over Voter Fraud Allegations

If there’s one thing that this race has done regarding political discourse, it’s examined whether voter fraud exists or not: is it widespread, where does it occur, do voter ID laws work (and are they racist) etc. which has occurred thanks to Trump’s incessant claims that the fix is in and the election might be rigged. I'm not going to delve into that, but voter fraud has occurred in local areas across the country. Yet, in key swing states, like Pennsylvania, state police have executed a raid on a Democratic-affiliated grassroots group after obtaining a search warrant to look for evidence of voter fraud (via The Philadelphia Inquirer):

Pennsylvania state police have raided a Delaware County political field office seeking evidence of possible voter-registration fraud, according to court records.

In a warrant filed late last week in County Court, investigators said they were seeking documents, financial information, and lists of employees at the Norwood office of FieldWorks LLC, a national organization that often does street work for Democrats, records show.

The warrant did not specify the nature of the probe, but said agents also were looking for "templates . . . utilized to construct fraudulent voter registration forms" and "completed voter registration forms containing same or similar identifying information of individuals on multiple forms."

A Delaware County judge on Friday afternoon signed the search warrant, but it was not known when it was executed. The warrant application was approved by the Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office. Jeff Johnson, a spokesman for the Attorney General's Office, declined to comment.

In a statement Monday, a spokesman for FieldWorks' national headquarters in Washington, said the company has "zero tolerance for fraud."

Delaware County is a key blue collar county around Philadelphia, which often decides who wins the national and statewide elections. Republicans haven’t won Pennsylvania since 1988, but updates like this in a key swing state in a pivotal county will surely add fuel to the fire of voter fraud. James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas group released a series of explosive videos after a yearlong investigation into the Clinton campaign and its allies on the Left that showed possible evidence that these groups were scheming to commit voter fraud. If Trump does well in Delaware, Montgomery, or Bucks counties, he could win the state and possibly beat Clinton in the general.
