It was recently discovered that nineteen dead people registered to vote in the upcoming election in Harrisonburg, Virginia, prompting an FBI investigation, which took very little time in identifying the guilty party.

What were the odds that the guilty party was a Democrat? I’m thinking 99 to 1, and I’m not so sure about the 1.

Meet Daniel Spieles, a student at James Madison University and very active in the local Democrat party. According to Zero Hedge, Spieles is the “‘Lead Organizer’ for HarrisonburgVOTES.” Don’t bother checking that link. It is history already, for obvious reasons.

Likewise, their Twitter account has become “protected.” Gotta’ love that intro on their Twitter page, though….

“We work to increase the number of registered voters in the city of Harrisonburg and the surrounding areas, and encourage active civic engagement..” Many times, apparently.

“While this should come as a surprise to precisely 0 people,” Zero Hedge declares, “Spieles just happens to be Democrat who, according to a deleted FaceBook post, apparently recently ran for Caucus Chair of the Virginia Young Democrats.”

Has anyone else noticed the sad irony of the perpetrator being a student at the university (my alma mater) whose namesake is the author of the United States Constitution? James Madison is not turning over in his grave right now. He is running the spacious grounds of Montpelier tearing his hair out.

As reported by People’s Pundit Daily, “Rockingham County officials confirmed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is looking into voter fraud after a Democratic group registered dead people in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Andrew Spieles, a James Madison University student and Democrat working for HarrisonburgVotes, confessed earlier this month that he submitted some 19 applications for deceased individuals.

The story was originally reported by The Breeze, a student newspaper. ‘He turned in 19 voters to the registrar [of] folks that were deceased,’ a a source with HarrisonburgVOTES to The Breeze.

HarrisonburgVotes is run by Joe Fitzgerald, a prominent local Democrat and the chairman of his congressional district’s Democratic Committee.

‘On August 15 I found out and on the 16 [the suspect] confessed to me,” said Mr. Fitzgerald, who is also the technology coordinator for the dean’s office of the College of Arts and Letters. “I contacted the police immediately to let them know what I knew.’

Republican lawmakers held a news conference call Thursday in an attempt to shed light on the fraud, which they said warrants their push for strong voter ID laws. People’s Pundit Daily has now reported on several instances of fraud, including in the battleground state of Colorado, which are appearing to be the tip of a potentially large iceberg.

‘Often times we hear our Democrat colleagues suggest that voter fraud doesn’t exist in Virginia or is a myth,” said House Speaker William H. Howell, R-Stafford. “Well it does indisputably exist.’

The group’s Facebook page, which served as an indicator for their ideology and identified their party affiliation, was deleted Friday and their Twitter account feed was put on ‘protected’ status, meaning it is now hidden from public view. The group’s blog is now marked private to hide the content.

Why are on Earth would a public voter registration effort be impossible to reach? Doesn’t that, well, defeat the point?”
