Steve Bannon and Breitbart.com has made voter fraud a key part of their drive for voter ID laws. In 2012, Breitbart ran a piece about the Wisconsin voting laws trying to show that direct threat by non-resident voters in elections.
This is part of what they wrote:
This vulnerability, due to the current state law, has many concerned over the integrity of the upcoming elections. The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has even promoted this gap of occurrence in a fair election through its Twitter feed, encouraging people to register by today, October 17, with no need to prove residence.
This presents a real concern regarding the efforts of community organizers and political activists moving into Wisconsin, no doubt a battleground in the presidential race between Barack Obama (D) and Mitt Romney (R) as well as the very tight race between Tammy Baldwin (D) and former Governor Tommy Thompson (R).
As you can see, Breitbart under Steve Bannon was very concerned about voter fraud in Wisconsin back in 2012. So why is that so important today? Well, it turns out another case of voter fraud may be in the works this year. Only this time it is in Florida not Wisconsin.
This morning the Guardian reported that Bannon is apparently “registered to vote in a key swing state in an empty house where he does not live, in an apparent breach of election laws.” Bannon used to live in Dade-Miami area in a rental property he no longer lives in. That rental property has been empty for months.
It was later reported that Bannon changed his Florida registration address. He now claims to live at an address that belongs to Andy Badolato, who reports for Breitbart News and has worked with Bannon in the past on the production of political films. According to public records, Badolato, 52, and two of his adult sons are also registered to vote at the property, which he co-owns with his ex-wife.
There is no evidence that Bannon actually lives at the address or not. So, if Breitbart is really all that interested in stamping out voter fraud, they are surely going to do an in-depth investigation into this matter.
They should also be investigating if Bannon actually voted in 2014 or in the primaries this year using this false address. But, I am sure that this is simply an oversight by Bannon and that Breitbart will tell us that was the case.
See, if there is voter fraud by Democrats, it is a terrible crime. If it is by Republicans, it is not so terrible after all. When Wisconsin’s Voter ID law was recently struck down, it came out that there was only one case of in-person voter fraud reported. That voter fraud was a Republican who voted for Scott Walker during his recall vote. He voted for Walker 14 times.
The funny thing was Breitbart somehow missed that point. There weren’t any “VOTER FRAUD EXPOSED IN WISCONSIN” headlines after it was released in the court case. Maybe Delusional Donald is right. We should be watching the polls for voter frauds like his campaign CEO Steve Bannon.
