Report: More Than 5,000 Non-Citizen Voters Purged From Rolls in VA
On his FBN show Thursday, Stuart Varney highlighted a new report that Virginia purged more than 5,000 non-citizen voters from the rolls.
The Public Interest Legal Foundation reports that 5,556 voters were removed since 2011 and one-third of them cast ballots.
The report states:
- Virginia election officials quietly removed 5,556 voters for non-citizenship between 2011 and May 2017;
- 1,852 of those removed as noncitizens cast ballots;
- A total of 7,474 illegal ballots were cast from the pool of removed noncitizens;
- Some records of illegal voting date back to the 1980s before their respective removals;
- Virginia election officials routinely fail to alert law enforcement about these illegal votes or registrations.
Varney said Hillary Clinton continues to make excuses for why she lost, but never acknowledges allegations of illegal voting, which likely helped her more than President Trump.
He called out the Obama administration for failing to allow a list of non-citizens in the United States to be checked against voter rolls to potentially root out illegal votes.
And Varney said Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a close Clinton ally, vetoed a bill to knock green card-holders off the Virginia voter rolls.
Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted, arguing that the Clinton campaign should have been ready on Election Day to file legal challenges if they believed voter suppression was a factor, as they claimed in Wisconsin.
Napolitano called the situation in Virginia "reprehensible," criticizing Republicans in Virginia for not challenging the governor in court.
