Michele White, a former registrar in one of Virginia’s most significant voting counties, was indicted on corruption and making false statements in connection with the 2020 election, according to a report on Thursday by Huge News.
In reality, the general public is unaware of a number of criminal cases involving voter fraud and corruption.
There have been 1.182 criminal convictions related to the 2020 election, according to the Heritage Foundation’s Election Fraud Database, which gives a sample of recent proved instances of election fraud from all over the country.
There is now one more to add:
The Virginia Attorney General’s Office said Michele White faces three corruption charges but did not outline specifics of the alleged crimes.
The office of state Attorney General Jason Miyares said a grand jury indicted former Prince William County General Registrar Michele White on two felonies and one misdemeanor charge.
The charges are corrupt conduct as an election official and willful neglect of duty as an election official between Aug. 1 and Dec. 31, 2020 and a false statement by an election official between Nov. 3 and Nov. 10, 2020. Miyares’ office declined to comment to Fox News.
The indictment did not provide any details of the specific crimes White is accused of.
White held the post of county registrar from February 2015 until her resignation in April 2021, the Prince William County Times reported. She stepped down after an emergency March 2021 meeting of the Electoral Board to discuss her tenure, the report said.
The Heritage Foundation claims:
In 2020, the county set records for early and absentee ballots cast and coincided with changes in state laws that expanded access to early voting, according to the newspaper.
Each and every one of the cases in this database represents an instance in which a public official, usually a prosecutor, thought the fraud serious enough to act upon it. And each and every one ended in a finding that the individual had engaged in wrongdoing in connection with an election hoping to affect its outcome—or that the results of an election were altered or sufficiently in question and had to be overturned.
It is important to remember that every fraudulent voter registration could result in a fraudulent vote if it is not detected prior to an election. Or it could affect ballot and candidate qualifying petitions that require voter signatures.
Every fraudulent vote that is cast invalidates the vote of an eligible voter, effectively disenfranchising that voter. In addition to diluting the votes of legitimate voters, instances of fraud can have—and have had—an impact in close elections, altering the outcome. We have many close elections in this country.
There are people who claim that election fraud is massive, and those who claim it is exceedingly rare or doesn’t occur at all. But as the U.S. Supreme Court said in 2008 in Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, “flagrant examples of such fraud … have been documented throughout this Nation’s history by respected historians and journalists … [that] demonstrate that not only is the risk of voter fraud real but that it could affect the outcome of a close election.”

The big problem is that nobody really knows the extent of election fraud, including us. While we are not making any definitive claims about the extent of election fraud in our country, we are confident in saying that there are far too many vulnerabilities in our current system. The important thing is that people must have trust in the outcome, which is difficult to do, in large part, because of the vulnerabilities that currently exist. CONTINUE READING…
