ACRU: Vote Fraud in Nursing Homes is Real and Verifiable

Naples, FLAmerican Constitutional Rights Union (ACRU) has provided affidavits to the Texas Attorney General as part of a request for a criminal investigation into alleged vote fraud committed against a resident with dementia in a Texas nursing home.

In April of this year, ACRU launched its Protect Elderly Votes project to protect seniors from vote fraud and ballot manipulation by providing resources and guidance to seniors, senior residence staff, and anyone assisting the elderly with voting.

ACRU’s vote fraud hotline (877-730-ACRU) has been advertised throughout the country for residents and their family members to utilize to report suspected fraud. The Texas case is a result of a tip through the ACRU hotline.

This hotline also received a documented tip from a credible poll observer at a voting center in Detroit. “John” witnessed falsification of ballots (particularly military ballots) and saw unverifiable ballots appear. He documented “bullying” and “blocking” of GOP count observers.

ACRU pointed him in the right direction and he is now one of the whistleblowers in this lawsuit. We are grateful to “John” and the many honorable and patriotic whistleblowers who are standing for voting integrity. They are heroes.

Just last week the Texas Attorney General announced an indictment of a social worker in another Texas town on 134 felony counts of election fraud perpetrated against nursing home residents.

A key part of ACRU’s effort was direct contact with senior residence directors and CEOs warning against vote interference and ballot harvesting committed by outside political agents or residence staff. ACRU made over 1,000 calls to nursing homes and senior living facilities in multiple states and sent over 3,000 letters nationwide warning against fraud and providing important legal details.

With direct calls to almost every nursing home in Pennsylvania, Protect Elderly Votes heavily targeted its outreach to the Keystone State. Now, according to a report from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), attention to nursing home election fraud in this state are well-founded.

“Senator Graham is reporting his Committee office has been alerted to the possibility of as many as 25,000 potentially fraudulent votes gathered illegally from nursing home residents in Pennsylvania. Its state law does not allow ballot harvesting, yet thousands of seniors across the state seem to have requested ballots in a very short window of time,” notes ACRU President Lori Roman.

“As the Senator continues his investigation, the important questions that must be answered include determining who requested these ballots and who completed them.”

Roman concludes: “We have seen the arrest of a social worker in Texas charged with falsifying ballots of residents in the facility where she worked and we have received numerous tips through our vote fraud hotline indicating that nursing home staff or activists are taking advantage of elderly patients. This is not only vote fraud but certainly a form of elder abuse. No American should stand for this disgusting abuse of power.”

ACRU takes action on behalf of the nation’s seniors to protect their voting rights

Naples, FL— American Constitutional Rights Union honors and appreciates America’s seniors for the positive influences and tremendous sacrifices they have made to ensure the safety and security of our nation at home and abroad.

ACRU’s Protect Elderly Votes project, launched today, will work to protect seniors from those who may wish to defraud them of their vote, by providing resources and guidance for seniors, senior residence staff, and anyone assisting the elderly with their voting.

Nearly six months away from the next national election on November 3, 2020, many liberal governors are using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to order changes to election policy that make voting less secure and increases the chance of widespread vote fraud. These changes include eliminating photo ID requirements for voters and universal vote by mail.

ACRU believes elderly voters in our communities may be at particular risk to be targets of vote fraud and ballot manipulation as many face unique challenges such as a decline in vision or hearing, mobility issues, or a move to new and unfamiliar residences.

Amb. J. Kenneth Blackwell, a member of the ACRU Policy Board and a former Secretary of State from Ohio, acknowledged the importance of protecting the votes of our elderly citizens, noting, “We must take every action to ensure the integrity and intent of our seniors’ political choices at a time when they are at risk to be targets of vote fraud. Americans under 65 must demonstrate their gratitude for the continued guidance of our treasured seniors by protecting their votes.”

“There are numerous instances of political activists appearing on the doorsteps or residential units of our seniors with offers to ‘help’ fill out and deliver voter registration cards as well as ballots. Many of these persons, unknown to the elderly voter, have been prosecuted for checking a box on the ballot that goes against the senior’s wishes,” says Lori Roman, ACRU President.

“Political activists may go door to door in areas with a high senior population to turn out the vote—this is entirely acceptable and even encouraged–but we must protect seniors from those wish to defraud them of their freely decided vote. ACRU has created the Senior Citizens Voter Bill of Rights to assist seniors in understanding their continuing right to vote, navigating registration procedures for a new voting location, as well as helping them recognize the signs of vote fraud,” stated Roman.

“We hope every American will join us in our crusade to protect elderly votes by visiting our website and learning about the unique challenges senior voters face, signing the Protect Elderly Votes petition and by sharing our critically important Senior Citizen Voter Bill of Rights. We also encourage use of our hotline to report possible fraud.

“We are all in this together for our great American seniors,” Roman concludes.

Protect Elderly Votes is a project of the American Constitutional Rights Union, a non-partisan, non-profit public policy organization dedicated to defending the constitutionally-protected civil rights of all Americans.
