GOP senator: Dems making ‘concerted effort to produce fraudulent votes’

Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson said that while he’s committed to accepting the results of the election, he has serious concerns about Democrat-orchestrated fraud. 

{mosads}In an interview with radio station WTAQ this week, Johnson said that the emails from top Hillary Clinton aides released by WikiLeaks evidences corruption on the Democratic side. 

He also said that the undercover videos by James O’Keefe, which appear to show Democrats planning to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies and conspiring to have people vote fraudulently, prove what’s long been expected. 

“How many times have we talked about fraudulent voter registration drives? There’s been stories, there’s been evidence accumulating for literally decades of this, and the Clinton emails prove that’s exactly what they do. This is a concerted effort on their part. Whether it’s ACORN or Organize for America, Democrats engage in a concerted effort to produce fraudulent votes,” he said.

White House press secretary said the clandestine Project Veritas videos should be taken “with a whole packet of salt.”

But they play into Trump’s increasing claims that the election is already rigged against him. 

“So yeah, I’m concerned about that corruption. Every American who’s going to cast a legitimate vote ought to be concerned about fraudulent votes because it disenfranchises your legitimate vote,” Johnson said. 

Johnson’s Democratic challenger Russ Feingold is polling several points ahead of Johnson, according to RealClearPolitics. Clinton likewise is leading Trump in the state by an average of about 7 points.
