Was Bernie robbed? A new study by a national voter rights watchdog organization suggests that thousands of Bernie Sanders voters had their votes suppressed or downright not counted. In a stunning study released July 28th, 2016, Election Justice USA contends that the former Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders lost up to 184 electoral votes to current nominee Hillary Clinton.
The study, Democracy Lost: A Report on the Fatally Flawed 2016 Democratic Primaries, looks at several areas of illegal voting activities, including: Targeted voter suppression; Registration tampering; Illegal voter purges; Exit polling discrepancies; voting machine tampering; and he security (or lack thereof) for voting machines.
The study examines each state’s voting practices throughout the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries. Election Justice USA has concluded that Bernie Sanders lost “an upper estimate of 184 pledged delegates” as a consequence of fraud, suppression, and other voting irregularities.
The study’s release follows the Democratic National Convention, at which the party’s chairwoman was forced to resign amid an email scandal that revealed DNC top leadership was working to undermine the Bernie Sanders campaign.
Voter fraud and suppression seem to be aimed at Democrats disproportionately. Last week, a Federal Appeals court struck down a North Carolina voter identification law
that, according to the decision, “targeted African-Americans with almost surgical precision.” The overwhelming number of African-American voters in North Carolina are African-American.
Given the bombshell nature of the Election Justice USA report, it is surprising the lack of media attention the study is generating. Only one website, Inquisitr.com
, ran a story about the study on July 28th, 2016, the date of its release. No major media website or publication as published on the report.
