Manhattan Board of Elections Commissioner Alan Schulkin revealed some very strong opinions about voter fraud in the city while a spy camera was running from Republican partisan group Project Veritas. Alan Schulkin claimed in December:
The New York City ID card is issued without vetting. “Anybody can go in there” and get a card. “The law says you can’t ask for anything.” There are “thousands of absentee ballots. I don’t know where they came from.”
He said, “They bus people around to vote… and go poll site to poll site.” When prodded about black and Hispanic neighborhoods, Alan Schulkin agreed and added “Chinese.”
As Project Veritas describes the video:
In the video, NYC Democratic Commissioner of the Board of Elections Alan Schulkin is caught on hidden camera at a United Federation of Teachers holiday party admitting that there is widespread voter fraud in New York City.
The assumption here is that the claims by Alan Schulkin must be correct because he is a Democrat. The attempted message here is that Republicans are right about voter fraud and a Democrat is “admitting” it.
Alan Schulkin as the Elections Commissioner should have information to support his claims — especially the “race” based claims. His statement is not an “admission” of anything; it is merely a claim. There should be hearings or an investigation now.
New York City is essentially a “one-party state” where both conservatives and liberals go into the Democratic Party. As Alan Schulkin says in the video, “I get more conservative as I get older.” He also says, “I’m not always crazy about everything the Democrats do.”
The entire city council is Democratic. Alan Schulkin was appointed to the commissioner position by a split vote of 5 to 4. With such a tight split, it is clear that New York City Democrats are not typical of national Democrats.
Most importantly, Alan Schulkin should be questioned about his allegations of voter fraud to find if he has any real information to support them. Studies have shown otherwise.
