Charleston, W.V. — Federal law enforcement officials announced today they are charging Thomas Cooper, a mail carrier in West Virginia for alleged attempted election fraud.
“Cooper, age 47, of Dry Fork, WV, is charged with ‘Attempt to Defraud the Residents of West Virginia of a Fair Election.’ According to the affidavit filed with the complaint, Cooper held a U.S. Postal Service contract to deliver mail in Pendleton County,” The DoJ said in a statement. “In April 2020, the Clerk of Pendleton County received ‘2020 Primary Election COVID-19 Mail-In Absentee Request’ forms from eight voters on which the voter’s party-ballot request appeared to have been altered.
Some of the ballots were reportedly changed from Democrat to Republican while other ballots were altered in other ways.
The West Virginia Secretary of State’s office, the West Virginia Election Fraud Task Force, the FBI, and prosecutors from multiple U.S. Attorney’s Offices in West Virginia conducted the investigation. Twitter recently started attaching warning labels to President Trump’s tweets on Tuesday with fact-checkers from the Washington Post and CNN that led to a series of articles from left-wing media outlets that claimed that Trump’s warnings about fraud coming from mail-in voting were “unsubstantiated.”
The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra said, “The notion that voter fraud does not exist is categorically false as thousands have been charged and convicted for voter fraud, including with respect to using mail-in ballots to vote.”
Similarly, a Philadelphia election official pleads guilty to stuffing ballot boxes with fraudulent ballots for Democrat candidates with the total number of fraudulent ballots being cast comprising a significant portion of the total votes that were cast.
Domenick J. DeMuro admitted last week that an unnamed political consultant gave DeMuro directions and paid him money to illegally add votes for certain Democratic candidates, the Department of Justice said in a statement during DeMuro’s guilty plea hearing.
“After receiving payments ranging from between $300 and $5,000 per election from the consultant, DeMuro would add fraudulent votes on the voting machines, also known as ringing upvotes, for the consultant’s clients and preferred candidates thereby diluting and distorting the ballots that were cast by actual voters,” US Attorney William M. McSwain said at a press conference. “DeMuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during election day and then he would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate. He would add the fraudulent votes by literally standing in the voting booth and voting over and over and over again as fast as he could when he thought the coast was clear.”
In all, DeMuro’s fraudulent votes accounted for over 22% of the total voting in that division in 2014. In 2015, his fraud accounted for over 15% of the total votes in the division. In 2016, his fraud accounted for over 17% of the votes.”
