Pennsylvania State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R) slammed the state’s Democratic governor for ignoring troubling statistics concerning the voter rolls this week. In an interview with the Washington Times, Metcalfe called on Gov. Tom Wolf to immediate purge the rolls of 11,198 noncitizens who are currently registered to vote in Pennsylvania despite being ineligible for the right.
“I believe that we need to take action and have those people removed immediately from the rolls,” Metcalfe said in the interview. “They were never eligible to vote.”
Metcalfe’s stunning comments come just days after Texas officials confirmed they had more than 90,000 noncitizens on the voting rolls. Worse, though there has been some pushback on this in the days since the original report, as many as 58,000 of those individuals may have actually cast a ballot in at least one election over the past ten years. Together, these two cases show that there may be a voter fraud epidemic in this country that has flown under the radar.
But even in the face of these disturbing figures, groups on the left would rather go to extraordinary lengths to deny voter fraud than to confront the issue head-on.
“It’s clear that the right-wing elements in Texas government are trying to rig the system to keep power and disenfranchise 95,000 American citizens,” said Domingo Garcia, national president of the League of United Latin American Citizens. “There is no voter fraud in Texas. It’s a lie repeated time and again to suppress minority voters, and we’re going to fight hard against it.”
Garcia and his group are suing Texas to keep them from removing the noncitizens from the rolls.
These leftists would have us disbelieve what’s right in front of our faces and instead take up their rallying cry which says: Any attempt to secure the voting process is really a disguised effort to disenfranchise minorities. That’s a breathtakingly silly argument when it is used to fight against Voter ID laws; it is downright sinister when you’re talking about people who have been identified as noncitizens.
Truly, this is the left with their masks fully removed. And as it turns out, many of their supporters have no business going to the polls at all.
