2016 Voter Fraud: VA university student convicted of registering dead Democrat voters

Virginia was a swing state in the 2016 presidential election. Hillary Clinton won Virginia with 49.75% of the votes, vs. Donald Trump’s 44.43%.

Its governor is a Democrat and rabid Clinton supporter, Terry McAuliffe.

Victor Skinner reports for EAGNews.org that on Aug. 8, 2017, a James Madison University student, Andrew Spieles, 21, received a 100-day prison sentence in federal court, after he pleaded guilty to registering dead voters for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.

While working for the Democratic campaign during the voter registration drive, Spieles falsified at least 18 Virginia Voter Registration Forms that were submitted to the registrar’s office in Harrisonburg last August, WSET reports.

According to the Department of Justice’s news release:

“On August 15, 2016, an employee of the Registrar’s Office contacted law enforcement after another employee in the office recognized a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County Judge. The Registrar’s Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations. Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others bore incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers.”

Spieles admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individuals from ‘walk sheets’ provided to him by the Virginia Democratic Party, and by fabricating social security numbers and a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet.

Spieles told investigators that he alone was responsible for the fake voter registrations and that his antics were designed to help his co-worker reach a registration “quota,” The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported in June.

WHSV reports:

“Spieles, whose grandfather had died earlier that year, said he had no idea that three of the names he used on those forms were for people who had died. Choking back tears, he said he would have felt ‘hurt and angry’ if his family had received a letter about registering to vote addressed to his grandfather, and he wanted to apologize to the families.

He also apologized to the court and said he wanted to find a way to transform this situation into a way he can help people.”

Although Spieles’ voter fraud is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine, he reached a plea agreement with Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeb Terrien that reduced his sentence to between 100 and 120 days behind bars. A judge then waived the fine because Spieles couldn’t afford it and sentenced him to 100 days in prison.

The Times-Dispatch claims that “There is no indication any fraudulent votes were cast in November’s election as a result of the improper registrations.” How the newspaper knows that is not explained.

A James Madison University spokesman told The College Fix that Spieles already had graduated from the school before his misdemeanor conviction.

  1. I hope he found it all worth being a chump for the DNC. He knew right from wrong. He deserves more than 100 days. No proof of fraudulent votes from those registrations does not make it right.
    He could have saved himself a whole lot of grief because chances are, McAuliffe already had the fraud needed to win under control.

    What would you expect from one of the Clinton gang – Governor Terry McAuliffe – of course they cheated. When he was elected as Governor – they cheated. They know nothing else. That is why they are having such a hard time accepting President Trump – they cheated and can’t come to terms that they lost anyway.

    The penalties should be very stiff for this crime.

    Somehow this guy got caught. Somehow they couldn’t make this disappear.
    Somehow a whistle blower working the registrar’s office caught this and was personally offended enough to speak up.
    It was not an official investigation of voter fraud. The Democratic states are stonewalling efforts to do that because there were plenty of deliberate fraud and illegals voting and shills getting bussed around.
    I think if you mail the registration and can provide matching details at the polling place you can vote. So the claim that they could not find proof that any votes were cast is because the state government told them not to.

  4. Let me understand this, he could have faced a $100,000 fine. And this is a misdemeanor? This why there needs to mandatory minimum sentences, a year in prison and 50,000 should cure most people of this type of fraud. Plus the loss of voting rights.

    • Less then 365 days in jail = misdemeanor
      Fine has nothing to do with if its a felony criminal or a civil case…that is aside from it

    • Him pleading out gave a three point reduction in sentencing guidelines, took him under a year sentence. but that has nothing to do with fines imposed.

    • Waco Bob . . . I certainly do agree with that! “He couldn’t afford to pay the fine . . . hasn’t the Judge ever heard of the installment plan? I’d have that idiot paying even if it took the rest of his life.

      I do question, since the article says he has already graduated from college . . . just how favorably will prospective employers look upon him? Perhaps, that will depend upon what party they belong to, and whether or not they are an honest, law abiding individual in their own right.

  7. Dead people are Hillary’s base. They need a group they can relate to. Whining, shame and self-abuse can only get you so far. If donkeys could vote they could sew up the “immigrant” sector.

    Prison is too good for the whole lot of them. I’ll make exceptions for the stupid. They should be rounded up and placed in a donkey vaccination program.

  9. Andrew Spieles is only guilty of “Digging Up” votes for Hillary.
    But the funny part is; It Did Not Help, and Hillary is the one who should be in prison for Constitutional Law Violations!
    Maybe being in prison will prolong his life; if you know what I mean? Wink, Wink.

  11. Did you say “dead Democrats voted” or “Deah-head Democrats voted?” I didn’t think there was much of a difference, so maybe we’re trying to track down a “ghost population?” And, just a thought…what about the living, yet “dead-headed” Democrats that voted more than once? What about the illegals who voted all over this country? Phantoms all.
