Andrew Spieles was paid by a Democrat Party connected organization to register voters in the 2016 election. The twenty-one-year-old did just that, and more. He has been found guilty of registering voters fraudulently (in some cases using dead people’s names) and has been sentenced to 100 days in prison.
Spieles claims that he was working alone and under no instruction from the group employing him, but this makes almost no sense at all. We can safely assume that his job was not paid on a “commission basis” (payment for each sign up) because this would breach ethical conduct to employ someone. So what was the advantage in Spieles making up voters?
As has been seen in Project Veritas’ videos, Democrat leaders have openly admitted that they use buses to shuttle people around to different districts to vote in each one. And this is likely what happened with Spieles. There is no way he personally could have gone to 18 different voting stations and cast all the votes himself, but a well-organised part machine of volunteers armed with freshly created “voter registration lists” could inflict real damage on the democratic process.
Opinion on Social Media suggests that this was part of a massive operation and that Spieles was the only one unlucky enough to get caught.
A James Madison University student was sentenced to prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to registering dead voters for the Democratic Party during the 2016 election.
Andrew Spieles, 21, was given a 100-day prison sentence in federal court for falsifying 18 Virginia voter registration forms last August. A judge waived any fees associated with the charges due to an inability to pay the fine, and Spieles will not have to serve any probation following his jail-time.
Voter fraud is punishable by up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine in the Commonwealth of Virginia, but Spieles was able to enter a plea agreement with Assistant United States Attorney Jeb Terrien that limited his sentence to between 100 and 120 days behind bars.
Spieles worked as a Democratic campaign operative during its voter registration drive, and 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. He fabricated a birth date based on the ages listed in the walk sheet, and fabricated the social security numbers, the Justice Department said.
Spieles said he acted alone, and was not told by anyone else in the party to create fake voters.
Law enforcement was contacted last August after an employee at the Harrisonburg, Va., Registrar’s Office identified a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County judge. The Registrar’s Office then discovered more instances of falsified forms as it reviewed additional registrations. Additional registrations were found to be in the names of deceased people, while others contained inaccurate or incorrect information, including wrong middle names, birth dates and social security numbers.
Court documents indicate Spieles’ job was to register as many voters as possible and report to the Democratic campaign.
The investigation involved the Federal Bureau of Investigation along with local law enforcement.
