Democrat Operative Details His Involvement in Mail-In Ballot Fraud Schemes Going Back Decades
“This is a real thing,” the Democratic operative told the NY Post. “And there is going to be a f–king war coming Nov. 3rd over this stuff … If they knew how the sausage was made, they could fix it.”
While Democrats and many in the mainstream media continue to erroneously claim mail-in ballot fraud doesn’t exist and that President Trump is conspiring with the USPS to remove mail drop boxes all over the country, some reporters out there are actually doing the investigative digging it takes to separate facts from fiction.
The New York Post’s Jonathan Levine is one such journalist who is on the case as it relates to mail-in ballots and the potential they present for fraud. He filed an explosive report over the weekend detailing his interview with a Democratic operative who says he’s been directly involved in coordinating and participating in election fraud schemes involving mail-in ballots going back decades.
Here are some of the highlights:
Mail-in ballot fraud happens more often than most people think
The operative, who claims he’s been involved in mail-in ballot fraud efforts in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, told Levine that the types of ballot fraud President Trump and other Republicans have warned about is the rule in close races, not the exception:
But the political insider, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he fears prosecution, said fraud is more the rule than the exception. His dirty work has taken him through the weeds of municipal and federal elections in Paterson, Atlantic City, Camden, Newark, Hoboken and Hudson County and his fingerprints can be found in local legislative, mayoral and congressional races across the Garden State. Some of the biggest names and highest office holders in New Jersey have benefited from his tricks, according to campaign records The Post reviewed.
It all starts with the return envelope and a copy machine
According to the anonymous operative, it all starts with obtaining the return envelope sent to voters along with their mail-in ballots:
In New Jersey, for example, it begins with a blank mail-in ballot delivered to a registered voter in a large envelope. Inside the packet is a return envelope, a “certificate of mail in voter” which the voter must sign, and the ballot itself.
The ballot has no specific security features — like a stamp or a watermark — so the insider said he would just make his own ballots.
“I just put [the ballot] through the copy machine and it comes out the same way,” the insider said.
But the return envelopes are “more secure than the ballot. You could never recreate the envelope,” he said. So they had to be collected from real voters.
He would have his operatives fan out, going house to house, convincing voters to let them mail completed ballots on their behalf as a public service. The fraudster and his minions would then take the sealed envelopes home and hold them over boiling water.
“You have to steam it to loosen the glue,” said the insider.
He then would remove the real ballot, place the counterfeit ballot inside the signed certificate, and reseal the envelope.
The operative then noted that he’d make sure to get ballot handlers to put the ballots in multiple drop boxes instead of just one, to avoid triggering suspicion at the USPS.
USPS workers are sometimes involved in the fraud
According to Levine, the operative described how some postal workers would simply throw out ballots in Republican strongholds:
“You have a postman who is a rabid anti-Trump guy and he’s working in Bedminster or some Republican stronghold … He can take those [filled-out] ballots, and knowing 95% are going to a Republican, he can just throw those in the garbage.”
In some cases, mail carriers were members of his “work crew,” and would sift ballots from the mail and hand them over to the operative.
In 2017, more than 500 mail-in ballots in New York City never arrived to the Board of Elections for races that November — leaving hundreds disenfranchised. They eventually were discovered in April 2018. “For some undetermined reason, some baskets of mail that were bound to the New York City Board of Elections were put off to the side at the Brooklyn processing facility,” city elections boss Michael Ryan said at the time of discovery.
The operative also explained to Levine how ballot fraud happened in nursing homes, homeless shelters, and at the actual polling places themselves. Make sure to read the full report here and watch the interview he did today with Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade below for more insight:

The bottom line, according to the operative, is that mail-in ballot fraud is a “real thing” that could be fixed:
“This is a real thing,” he said. “And there is going to be a f–king war coming November 3rd over this stuff … If they knew how the sausage was made, they could fix it.”
The problem here is that only one political side wants to lessen the likelihood of this type of election fraud happening, while the other side – including their allies in the mainstream press, willfully turns a blind eye to it because it’s politically advantageous for them to look the other way.

The main stream media won’t cover this because they want this to happen. They are guilty of conspiracy to defraud the American people of their voter rights.
They are Fake News!
Curious how the individual describing these actions says they primarily occurred in blue states. Also curious is how badly the Democrats are demanding universal vote by mail. Eh, probably just a coincidence. (sarc)
Democrats and many in the mainstream media continue to erroneously claim mail-in ballot fraud doesn’t exist
They have to deny it because admitting it exists is tantamount to a guilty plea.
In the Democrat Primary in New Jersey – 10% of the mail in ballots were disqualified. They had no postmark, were not signed, had signatures that did not match the one on file, etc.
Currently, two or three times more Democrats are requesting absentee ballots in my state than Republicans. So, if 2 million Dems vote absentee and 1 million GOP voters vote absentee – the Dems will have 200,000 disqualified and the GOP will have 100,000 disqualified.
For Absentee Only states and not Universal Mail-in States – this will hurt the Democrats.
In Indiana, the is a suit to ban signature verification
“had signatures that did not match the one on file, etc.”
This could be very interesting since in many of these schemes, the absentee ballot is requested by the scammer. His signature then replaces the actual voter’s signature in the records.
(My mother deposited Dad’s paycheck for him for years. One weekend she went to visit her sister and left a deposit slip for Dad to take care of it. The bank declined to accept the check because his signature didn’t match those on file for the bank (mother had been endorsing his checks for him).
“And there is going to be a f–king war coming Nov. 3rd over this stuff …” -jon levine
I truly hope the left, for their sake, does not want a war over this.
We designed our system to avoid war. To avoid political violence. No American should feel afraid to express their opinion, political or otherwise. But the left is in the process of drawing a bright line. What they seem to fail to realize, is the bright line is drawn at their own peril.
Not a threat. Not hoping for a 2A conflict. The left is arguing and posturing from a weak, even untenable position.
Ultimately, election fraud isn’t going to be tolerated this go-round.
Hopefully once the Executive and Legislative branches go Red, National Voter ID is implemented, effectively ending voter fraud.
“Ultimately, election fraud isn’t going to be tolerated this go-round.”
I hope so. This is why people need to decide now what they will do WHEN (and not “if”) the Communists try to steal the election. Because the steal is coming – and it will rival the massive voting fraud we used to laugh at in banana republics.
I sincerely hope your least fears for the election outcome are not even close to coming true. And we need to decide, as you suggest, what we are willing to do to protect the republic if our worst fears come to fruition. It is too late to stock up on the best tools to combat the Socialists/Communists, the shelves are mostly bare.
The Dems and the media have done everything in their power to get Trump out of office since the night he won the election in 2016. They are not going to stop. And will stop at nothing to defeat Trump. Cheating is just one of their tactics and don’t be surprised if absentee ballets don’t give Sleepy Joe a very narrow victory a week after election night. The NY Post gives us the game plan on how this will happen.
I think the ballots most prone to fraudulent use are the mail ballot schemes (mass ballot mailings to all people on the voter rolls which haven’t been cleaned up in a decade or more in most states), not regular absentee ballots (which require the voter to request a ballot with a valid reason to not vote in person, still possible to defraud, but not as easy which is why the Socialist/Communist agitators/politicians want to do away with signature verification if they can’t get all mail balloting).
Well, the few states that send out unsolicited ballots are just insane; they’re begging for fraud. Thankfully there are only a handful of states that do that. But normal mail-in ballots, while not quite as bad as that, still present plenty of opportunity for fraud, and have been notorious for decades as a source of fraud.
Just cast your mind back to when Voter ID was the topic of the day. What argument did Dems make against it? That it is very rare to have organized fraud in in-person voting. It’s too difficult, they said. The real fraud is in absentee voting, or in registering ineligible voters, and Voter ID would not prevent either of those things.
And as I said at the time, this is perfectly true, but it’s no reason not to do it anyway. Not only is there is probably at least some organized fraud in in-person voting, but disorganized fraud is also a problem, and if we can do something so simple to stop it why would we deliberately decide not to? If we could only do one thing to stop fraud, then I agree it shouldn’t be Voter ID. But we aren’t limited to one thing, and doing this doesn’t prevent us from combating the real sources of fraud too.
Now just a few years later they’re pretending they didn’t say any of that.
Well, the few states that send out unsolicited ballots are just insane; they’re begging for fraud.
WA. Seattle. QED.
What if Trump wins reelection? The commies own this country. The same teachers will still be indoctrinating children from Kindergarten onward. The same lying garbage media will still be propagandizing. The same deep-state bureaucrats will still be undermining the President and the will of the people who elected him. The same feckless Republicans will still be surrendering to the left and backstabbing Trump and their constituents – or a new crop will be doing it. And Soros will continue to buy politicians and DAs. They will continue to gain power and numbers, and it will only get worse.
“The commies own this country.”
I was a Russian linguist in the Navy during the last 10 years of the Cold War. All those years when I thought we were defeating communism and then when I thought we had done it, those commies were laughing up their sleeves cause they knew where the real fight was.
It breaks my heart.
You ain’t kidding. The Communists did real damage to our country with their propaganda and we are still feeling it. But don’t underestimate the significance of the rest of our society’s decay over the last decades. We have grown an enormous underclass of uneducated, unskilled, ignorant people that are highly dependent and susceptible to Communist propaganda.
We got Yuried. Or Bezmenoved. Take your pick.
Arm up. Train up. Stock up. Have food, water, medications, and a generator for preservation and preparation with stabilized gasoline stored safely. A big one isn’t necessary, only one that can power appliances on a rotating basis. If your heat is by forced air with natural gas, it needs to power only the fan(s) and controls. Figure out a way to connect it. Have heavy duty extension cords on hand.
You do have a manual can opener, don’t you?
Being a hard core prepper may not be needed, but having a few weeks’ worth of supplies on hand isn’t paranoid, just prudent.
My about to turn 93 year father was a teacher. There was no income during the summer, so I grew up working in a garden, and helping dad buy sale items throughout the year, so that we went into summer with ample supplies. He bought sale items in quantity.
I do the same, and to keep transaction costs down I routinely buy supplies in year quantities. Last year I topped off in January because of China’s sneak virus.
Keep in mind that non citrus canned goods easily last 5-10 or more years, citrus only 4-5 at the outside.
People should be doing this for the 35% return on assets which I realize. Security is just a fringe benefit.
Surges in prices after an event is another reason. For example I use neem oil, before the current situation,16 oz was $10 delivered, now it is $22. That is happening with lots of products.
Slightly off-topic, but related to continuing Big-Tech manipulation –
It seems once a week now I’m finding one of my routine e-mail messages from Morning Insurrection has somehow been shuffled off into my junk mail folder. My long-time e-mail address is now managed by Microsoft’s Outlook system.
I then consistently mark it “Not junk” and it slides back over to my regular In-Box and everything remains fine for some days. And then, oops, it happens again.
Has anyone else among our fine-people loyal readership experienced a similar issue?
It happens, rarely, with my Mozilla Thunderbird email client but not with LI.
I have a Microsoft-administered email address and use Outlook. I have bo such issues. None.
Yes, I have the same thing happening in my live.com (Microsoft) account. Mail from the Second Amendment Foundation and Judicial Watch (to name but two) sometimes (but not always) goes to my junk mail, even though I regularly mark them “not junk.” Funny thing is none of my non-political, non-spam retail promotion and other such lists I am on have mail that ends up with the junk, only mail that I regularly receive from a variety of pro-gun and conservative sources. I’m fairly well convinced that they’re trying to get me to accidentally block some of it as junk. Blocking doesn’t seem to work against regular spam (they have work-arounds), but I’ll bet if I accidentally blocked politically-oriented mail to which I am subscribed it would block that mail.
Huh. Thanks, Dave. That does indeed sound like a very similar Microsoft-world experience.
Yet Grizzly, above, hasn’t noticed such issues with his MS Outlook system. So our class-action investigation is probably not airtight enough to proceed.
I think I’ll maybe keep a written log for a while, see if there may be some pattern. Will also take a fresh look at the e-mail filters I’d created myself some years ago; which seem to be otherwise consistently doing what they’re supposed to.
Does your domain have ATP turned on?
Hey Barr, why isn’t this guy in jail?
Um, (1) Because nobody except the reporter knows who he is, and the reporter is not telling. And (2) because he hasn’t committed any federal offenses. Oh, and (3), if he ever is caught a state prosecutor would still have to prove that he did all these things. What he told a reporter is not evidence.
The problem here is that only one political side wants to lessen the likelihood of this type of election fraud happening
No, no side wants to change it. If it did, it would have taken some legislative action when it controlled Congress.
Beyond the Electoral College and minimum requirements to run for President, VP, Senator and Representatives, how elections are conducted is the province of the states, not the Federal government. We shouldn’t be one of those people who want the Feds out of things which the Constitution reserves to the states or the people, then turn around and want the Feds to take over something else which the Constitution reserves to the states or the people. If we really want the way elections are conducted, we should be seeking an amendment to the Constitution giving control to the Feds about how elections for Federal offices are conducted. I can’t say I’m positive our Black Robed masters will agree that is what the Constitution stipulates if the following occurs without an amendment.
Of course the next time the Socialists/Communists control House, Senate and presidency we will then have mail ballots only across the entire country and only Socialists/Communists elected.
Without digging into the details, it is obvious that our voting process is seriously compromised on even the most superficial level. Just ask the question: “What has all of this technology and complication of what used to be a simple process accomplished? If it is to guarantee that everyone has a chance to cast their vote, what point is THAT is we can’t even count the votes correctly and on time?”
We used to do this very well in one day when all we had were paper ballots. Now we can’t do it right even with all of the “experts” and modern technology. What other conclusion can we deduce that it doesn’t work? Let’s go back to where it works and not be in such a rush to make things “better”. Getting rid of all of the Phds and lawyers would be a great start. Hire some common sense farmers to run our elections.
Maybe it never really worked and never was really secure. Who knows how many elections could have been stolen when paper ballots and hand-counting was being done. It might seem secure to us, but given enough incentive, just about any system can be corrupted. But certainly, the way to go is to make it harder, not easier, to corrupt.
It never worked any better, we just didn’t use to expect instant results. Close races have always had to wait on postal ballots to arrive and be counted.
This is precisely the voter fraud I witnessed in El Paso and have described frequently.
The Supreme Court is not the last word on what is and is not Constitutional. It may be for the government(s), but not for the people. The last word in our form of government is the people, armed: the militia.
The Dems want:
To eliminate the Electoral College
To allow foreign nationals and illegal aliens to vote (along w/open borders)
To make Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C. states
To pack SCOTUS by adding new justices (just as FDR did)
To have all ballots collected by mail
Does anyone doubt that every single one of these goals, if realized, would give them an advantage? How nakedly transparent has their quest for power and control have to be before people start to demand fairness, transparency, and (real) justice? What do the Dems have to do before most of America realizes that they don’t have the country’s interests in mind, only their own? Are mainstream Democrat voters actually in favor of unfair practices and do they believe that winning justifies the means? If power means that much to any political party, that party is not to be trusted with power; it has disqualified itself as a party worthy of trust.
