The leader of Virginia’s House Democrats, David Toscano, has staked a foolish claim regarding a recent exposé of voter fraud in the Commonwealth.
The FBI presently is investigating nearly 20 voter applications received by the Harrisonburg Registrar’s office—all under the names of deceased individuals. The applications reportedly were submitted by a James Madison University student working for HarrisonburgVotes, a Democrat-leaning advocacy group.
Follow up reporting in the Washington Post has brought national attention to the Harrisonburg voter fraud scandal and quotes Leader Toscano saying of the incident and the suspect:
“First of all, there was no voter fraud — they caught him.”
Toscano, a wily, leftist attorney—known for his cunning—apparently is unfamiliar with Virginia Code, which clarifies the issue:
§ 24.2-1016: False statements; penalties.
Any willfully false material statement or entry made by any person in any statement, form, or report required by this title shall constitute the crime of election fraud and be punishable as a Class 5 felony. Any preprinted statement, form, or report shall include a statement of such unlawful conduct and the penalty provided in this section. [emphasis added]
Democrats across Virginia echo Toscano’s duplicity, every time the issue of voter fraud arises. But facts speak louder than words, and this incident is likely just the tip of Virginia’s voter fraud iceberg.
