potential voter fraud Last week, the “Johnson for Governor” campaign manager, Dave Hansen, sent a letter to Lt. Governor Spencer J. Cox alerting him to allegations of potential voter fraud and requesting he investigate these allegations.

Hansen’s letter summarizes attempts to obtain ballot petition signatures under misleading or false pretenses and potentially fraudulent tactics. The letter actually includes four separate letters documenting these incidents. Hansen voiced his concern about potential voter fraud occurring in the ballot petition signature-gathering process. He sent a copy of the letter to Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes and Chairman of the Utah Republican Party James Evans.
The letter outlined the following unethical and potentially illegal acts performed by ballot petition signature gatherers:

—Signature gatherers fraudulently stating they represent the Utah Republican Party when they do not. When questioned directly about this incorrect representation, the gatherers state they have been “trained” by their employer to make that representation.

—Signature gatherers asking voters to forge the signature of a spouse or partner when the spouse or partner is not physically present.

—Signature gatherers stating Utah voters are required to sign a “refusal list” if they refuse to sign a petition.

—Signature gatherers using a “bait and switch” tactic when gathering signatures for multiple candidates by giving a signer the petition of a candidate the voter has declined to support, in the hopes that a signer will not notice the “bait and switch” and sign the wrong petition.
Hansen called for an independent agency (e.g., the Utah Attorney General’s office) to investigate the facts outlined in the letter to ensure the honesty and integrity of Utah elections and strict compliance with Utah law.

Hansen expressed concern regarding the Lt. Governor’s conflict of interest with this investigation.

“I am concerned that under current law that you, as the Lieutenant Governor and State Election Officer, have the responsibility of overseeing an honest and compliant election process while at the same time you have a vested interest in approving the signatures gathered on your behalf (i.e., the Herbert/Cox ticket),” Hansen wrote. “This concern is heightened because it appears you (i.e., the Herbert/Cox campaign) employed the company accused of the unethical and questionable practices noted above.”

The Johnson for Governor campaign announced in January that it would not gather ballot petition signatures but would rely solely on the caucus-convention process to secure a position on the primary ballot.

  1. America has a HUGE drug problem! 90% of the cocaine here comes through our southern border; 80% of meth and heroin here comes through our southern border!
    America has a HUGE illegal migrant problem! 81% of illegal migrants favor Democrats because they are coming from big government countries and Democrats favor big government. Consequently, as illegal immigration continues, Republican ideals lose! This is why people who want to give more political power to the left want this crime to continue.

    However, the wealthiest exploiters really don’t care much about Dems vs Reps, or that our children have easy access to drugs, but they DO care about cheap labor! THEY are the establishment; THEY fund the media and candidates from BOTH parties; and THEY will do anything to maintain the status quo that is benefiting them so much!

    Please, we NEED to vote for Trump because he is one of the very few candidates in recent history who isn’t another paid-for stooge looking to sell us out (BTW, we would be in better shape today if Ross Perot had won), and he is the only one who will have an absolute mandate to build the wall and secure our border. The establishment has been fiercely trying to derail his campaign for those very reasons!

  2. The problems with illegal migrants is that our emergency rooms are constantly full with them (I am a nurse so I know), the tremendous harm to our children’s education (my wife is a school teacher so she knows), the welfare costs (my nephew is a social worker so he knows), the destruction of middle class jobs (I worked in construction for 20 years so I know this too), the increased gangs/drugs/crime (my cousin was a police chief so he knows), and so many neighborhoods being destroyed (I lived in a poor one and watched it turn into an illegal migrant, gang infested, drug hole over the course of 15 years; and until any of these corrupt politicians living in their gated communities experience something like that, their rhetoric means less than zero to me).

    Despite misleading info and cherry-picked statistics by illegal migrant supporters (exploiters and sympathizers), that’s the reality where the rubber meets the road!

    If the epic fail politicians had listened to their constituents, rather than all of the wealthy exploiters, and done something to stop illegal immigration when it started in earnest back in the 1960s, we wouldn’t have this problem. We would have more legal, middle class immigrants strengthening our working class and contributing to our society instead!

  3. The “Establishment” are the wealthy elites who fund and control the media and both political parties (Dems vs Reps do not matter to them). That’s why America continues to be sold out to corporate and foreign interests, is overwhelmed by cheap illegal migrant labor, racks up debt, is perpetually in wars, and continues down the path to bankruptcy with no change in sight.
    For example, Obamacare was just another corporate empowerment (of insurance, hospitals, pharma) at the expense of taxpayers (the middle class in particular). As always, I’m sure the politicians got their palms greased a little to sell out their fellow Americans. My wife and I now spend about $5,000/year more on health insurance than we did 8 years ago and are required by law to do so.

    If a candidate who isn’t a paid-for puppet actually might be elected, the Establishment always utilizes its resources to stop them. This is what we see them doing with Trump. However, Trump is unique in the fact he has tremendous resources and an incredible ability to handle a corrupt press (Ross Perot had the resources but could not handle the press like Trump).

  4. American media is a democracy-destroying institution of propaganda as it exists today. I recommend searching for and watching the video “The Untruth about Donald Trump” to observe how the media has lied about Trump and fooled so many.
