Precincts with 0 votes for Romney suggest voter fraud

A pro-family activist believes that voter fraud may have indeed taken place in large cities like Cleveland and Philadelphia and could have impacted the election.

In the wake of the 2012 presidential race, voting records from the Cuyahoga County Ohio board of elections have revealed that Barack Obama received more than 99 percent of the vote in more than 100 precincts in that county on Election Day. In fact, there were several Cleveland precincts where Mitt Romney received exactly zero votes.

Robert Knight is a senior fellow and executive director at the American Civil Rights Union. He says there were similar anomalies in Philadelphia.

Knight, Robert (ACRU)"According the Philadelphia Enquirer, in 59 different voting precincts there wasn't a single vote cast for Mitt Romney," he tells OneNewsNow. "It was 99.9 percent for Barack Obama. That just doesn't even happen in communist countries. And the same thing happened, apparently, in Cuyahoga County, which is Cleveland, Ohio."

Knight says, judging by the thin margin Obama carried in battleground states, these vote totals should give pause.

"Barack Obama didn't carry any of them by more than two or three percent, and in some cases around one percent -- so a little bit of vote fraud in the cities may have made the difference," he suggests.

There have also been reports of individuals attempting to vote for Romney, but the voting machines kept recording their votes for Obama.
