BUSTED: Government Workers Sold IDs to Illegal Aliens for Voter Fraud
Corrupt government workers in Massachusetts were busted by the FBI earlier this week for selling state-issued driver’s licenses to illegal aliens, many of which were later used to vote in the greater Boston metropolitan area.
According to Judicial Watch, the Department of Justice confirmed the sale of the driver’s licenses to undocumented individuals throughout New England, adding that the false identities and addresses were used to vote in recent elections.
The scam was orchestrated by at least four individuals employed at the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), and involved outside operatives who linked the public workers with those seeking the fake identification.
The ring was eventually uncovered after someone sent an anonymous tip to local law enforcement in October of 2015.
State officials say the scheme involved a document dealer who sold Puerto Rican birth certificates on the black market. That document was then brought to the Massachusetts RMV where they were issued driver’s licenses without proper background checks.
“These clients included illegal aliens, individuals who were previously deported, and an individual who admitted to previously facing drug charges,” said a statement from the U.S. Department of Justice.
The case is the most recent example of widespread voter fraud throughout the country. President Trump has made cracking down on illegal registration a top priority for his administration, creating a Voter Task Force to fight back against these crimes.
