We have been told over and over that there is no need for voter identification laws. As I reported, the North Carolina voter Id laws were deemed racist and therefore unconstitutional. In defense of such opposition to these laws, we are told that there is little evidence that any voter fraud occurs.
The left upholds this line of thinking even in the face of the hundreds of dead people who voted in Southern California. Now, in the investigation of a tragedy in Washington state, there has been more voter’s fraud discovered.
As I reported, a man shot up a store in a Seattle mall. In the shooting, five people were killed. The shooter, who is now in custody, may also be charged with voters fraud.
The Washington Times reports
The man charged in Washington state’s deadly mall shooting on Sept. 23 voted in three elections despite not having U.S. citizenship.
Arcan Cetin of Oak Harbor is charged with five counts of first-degree premeditated murder in relation to last week’s shooting that killed five.
The green card holder, who moved to the U.S. from Turkey when he was 7, may now face additional charges related to voter fraud.
State records show that Mr. Cetin registered to vote when he turned 18 and then voted in three elections, including the 2016 presidential primary. Federal sources confirmed to a local NBC affiliate on Wednesday that he is not a U.S. citizen and is legally prohibited from voting.
The first question that we should ask is how could this happen. How is it possible for someone who is not a citizen to register and then vote in three elections and a primary and no one discover that he was voting illegally? It is simple; the officials are not allowed to question the citizenship of the people registering to vote.

“We don’t have a provision in state law that allows us either county elections officials or the Secretary of State’s office to verify someone’s citizenship,” Secretary of State Kim Wyman told the station. “So, we’re in this place where we want to make sure we’re maintaining people’s confidence in the elections and the integrity of the process, but also that we’re giving this individual, like we would any voter, his due process. We’re moving forward, and that investigation is really coming out of the investigation from the shootings.”
Since when is it due process to not ask for legal identification? It is not a violation of due process when store clerks ask for the ids of people buying cigarettes or beer. What about someone buying a car? Do you not have to show an id to buy a car?
What a backwards world we live in today.
