I guess the impeach Trump noise can only get louder than a DC poosey hat parade, as the realization the game is up dawns on the left.

If Judicial Watch's data proves correct, Clinton's so called popular vote lead will disappear faster than her election night euphoria.

Sadly it took Trump to start the cleanup and promotion of fairness in voting for this countries citizens.

Aside from Philadelphias specious electoral rolls, where else should Judicial Watch focus.

Judicial Watch Warns California to Clean Voter Registration Lists or Face Federal Lawsuit

4-5 minutes

Data Show LA, San Diego, San Francisco Have More Registered Voters than Eligible Adult Citizens – LA Voting Rolls Have 144% of the Total Number of Eligible Residents

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced it sent a notice-of-violation letter to the state of California and 11 of its counties threatening to sue in federal court if it does not clean its voter registration lists as mandated by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). Both the NVRA and the federal Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls. The August 1 letter was sent on behalf of several Judicial Watch California supporters and the Election Integrity Project California, Inc.

In the letter, Judicial Watch noted that public records obtained on the Election Assistance Commission’s 2016 Election Administration Voting Survey and through verbal accounts from various county agencies show 11 California counties have more registered voters than voting-age citizens: Imperial (102%), Lassen (102%), Los Angeles (112%), Monterey (104%), San Diego (138%), San Francisco (114%), San Mateo (111%), Santa Cruz (109%), Solano (111%), Stanislaus (102%), and Yolo (110%).

In the letter, Judicial Watch noted that Los Angeles County officials “informed us that the total number of registered voters now stands at a number that is a whopping 144% of the total number of resident citizens of voting age.”

Under Section 8 of the NVRA, states are required to make a reasonable effort to remove the names of ineligible voters from official lists due to “the death of the registrant” or “a change in the residence of the registrant,” and requires states to ensure noncitizens are not registered to vote.

There is “strong circumstantial evidence that California municipalities are not conducting reasonable voter registration list maintenance as mandated under the NVRA,” Judicial Watch wrote in the notice letter sent to California Secretary of State Alex Padilla.

Judicial Watch referred California officials to a settlement agreement it reached with the State of Ohio in which Ohio agreed to update and maintain its voter registration lists and to keep a current voter registration list online and available for public access.

“California’s voting rolls are an absolute mess that undermines the very idea of clean elections,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “It is urgent that California take reasonable steps to clean up its rolls. We will sue if state officials fail to act.”

In April, Judicial Watch sent notice-of-violation letters threatening to sue 11 states having counties in which the number of registered voters exceeds the number of voting-age citizens.  The states are: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Tennessee.

On July 18, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against Montgomery County and the Maryland State Boards of Elections under the NVRA. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division (Judicial Watch vs. Linda H. Lamone, et al. (No. 1:17-cv-02006)).

Election Integrity Project California, Inc. is a registered non-profit corporation that seeks to preserve a government of, by, and for the people. To that end, Election Integrity Project California empowers citizen volunteers through education and training to protect the integrity of the electoral process in California.

The director of Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project is senior attorney Robert Popper, who was formerly deputy chief of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department.

Can you imagine the stream of insufferable Trump tweets that would be forthcoming if this were true.

Even the unbearable becomes bearable when the outcome becomes proper fairness.

how many eligible voters are they required to boot to avoid Federal action?

It doesn't matter as long as we can purge the eight people who illegally voted.

This statement shows your acceptance of illegal voters! Even 1 ILLEGAL vote should never happen. 

What difference does it make? H.Clinton

Wrong. Every legal voter that can't vote because of some bureaucracy, taints the system as much as one illegally cast vote. There is no difference. If 100 legit voters are kept from voting to prevent one fraudulent vote, the system has failed more so than if one fraudulent vote had been cast.

I would think 'cleaning up the elgible voter list' would not exclude any legit voters.

Do you think with 44% more voters than adults is a bit much?

Even assuming 100% of adults bothered to register, that is still close to half again as many inelgible names are on the rolls.

Given the population of LA, I would think that number could be in the millions...enough to put Hillary over the top in popular vote in one county alone.

I wonder how many of the 44% cast a vote....that is the issue.

Assuming that the information is correct (which I'm dubious of because of the source), LA County is highly transient. People come and go all the time. Most people don't notify their board of elections when they move or when somebody dies. My father died over a year and a half ago. He is still registered to vote and we just got his DL renewal notification in the mail. If you purge those people, you darn sure better be sure you're not purging legit voters because it happens a LOT. Indiana just purged 500,000 voters just because they hadn't updated their info or voted since 2014. I wonder how many of them will get to the ballot box and find they can't vote.

By chance, did you mean that the other way around?

I get a card in the mail before each election telling me where and when to vote, If one didn't come one election year, I would be on the horn to find out why.

My father died 10 years ago, and I often wondered if he was still voting, and if he switched affiliation after his death?

So you think one fraudulent vote distorts the system more than 100 votes not cast due to government imposed obstacles?

Why are these government imposed obstacles ?
