It turns out, claims of vote rigging and election fraud, which were made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during the last presidential debate, weren’t far-fetched after all. According to early published reports, vote scamming has already been witnessed—even before election day hit.

Nov. 8 had not even arrived, yet charges of election scamming and vote tampering had already been leveled by voters and activists across the country before the first voting booth had even opened. The establishment mass media has insisted—without any evidence other than a few isolated cases—that if any vote rigging occurred in the 2016 election it would likely be by Trump supporters.
However, according to online journalist Mac Slavo, the real story is very different. Slavo noted that, if the latest flurry of emails leaked from the Clinton cohorts prove anything, it is that Hillary’s minions “have been actively manipulating and rigging the presidential election from the get-go.”
First Hillary conspired with the Democratic National Committee to “marginalize Bernie Sanders.” Along with billionaire George Soros, Hillary’s campaign paid agitators to provoke violence at Trump rallies to create the impression Trump supporters are violent.
“And we know from recently released John Podesta emails that [Hillary supporters] have been tampering with polls,” Slavo wrote in an online article that was picked up by multiple alt-news websites on Oct. 31.
So far, three people in Florida and Virginia have been charged with voter fraud, on Oct. 28, 2016, reported Reuters news agency. A woman in Miami was caught filling in blank absentee ballots, another woman in Dade County was caught submitting phony voter registrations, and a former Virginia man is facing 40 years in prison for four counts of felony voter registration fraud.
In Amarillo, Texas, Lisa Houlette was shocked when checking her ballot after casting a straight GOP ticket: “As I scrolled to submit my ballot I noticed . . . the Clinton/Kaine box was . . . highlighted. I tried to go back and change [this] and could not get it to work. I asked for help from one of the workers, and she couldn’t get it to go back, either. It took a second election person to get the machine to where I could correct the vote to a straight ticket.”
And in Arlington, Texas, Shandy Clark had this shocking story of vote-theft trickery to tell: “I had a family member that voted this morning, and she voted straight Republican. She checked before she submitted, and the vote had changed to Clinton. She reported it and made sure her vote was changed back. They commented that it had been happening.”
In one bizarre case on Oct. 27 in Des Moines, Iowa, Terri Lynn Rote was arrested on a felony charge after she attempted to vote twice. The Republican reputedly cast an early ballot at the county Election Office and a second ballot at a county “satellite” voting location. She told police that she was responding to charges that Hillary’s campaign was stealing the vote, so she wanted to balance Democrat vote theft by voting at least twice.
Two other suspects, identities not yet reported, are accused of casting mail-in ballots and also voting in person, but so far neither has been arrested, the Des Moines Register told readers.
