Voter Fraud in Missoula Getting National Attention: At Least 5% of Votes Fraudulently Cast


There seems to be little doubt if for nothing more than obvious but anecdotal evidence, that voter fraud seems to be demonstrably worse in Democrat strongholds. Combining that with mail-in ballots this year was a recipe for disaster in Missoula, where an audit has revealed anomalies that cannot be explained by anything but intentional and criminal voter fraud.

Real Clear Investigations wrote the report that should have anyone in Missoula County sharpening pitchforks and lighting their torches, at least if they were as concerned about election security as they are renewable energy goals.

The report begins…

A mountainous, 2,600-square-mile region with a population of approximately 119,600 does not seem like your prototypical setting for machine politics. Yet a recent audit of mail-in ballots cast there found irregularities characteristic of larger urban centers — on a level that could have easily swung local elections in 2020, and statewide elections in cycles past.

It goes on, “The story at hand begins during the pandemic summer of 2020, when the then-governor, Democrat Steve Bullock, issued a directive permitting counties to conduct the general election fully by mail.  In the run-up to the election, a court also struck down Montana’s law aimed at preventing ballot harvesting.”

What was the consequence of the all-mail ballot? It appears to have been tragic.

Thanks to all-around conservative super-hero, Brad Tschida, Missoula County was pressed via legal wrangling to access the county’s ballots and review them for irregularities. The results were astounding, with 6.33% of all ballots lacking envelopes (which ensure their originality and that they indeed belong to a registered voter). Please note that it is illegal to count such ballots.

Meanwhile, “county employees claimed that during the post-election audit, some of the envelopes may have been double-counted, possibly indicating an even higher number of missing envelopes.”

In addition, .7% of envelopes didn’t have their signatures checked. Dozens of ballot envelopes “bore strikingly similar, distinctive handwriting styles in the signatures, suggesting that one or several persons may have filled out and submitted multiple ballots, an act of fraud.” And once more, 28 ballots from a Missoula nursing home – out of 28 ballots – had the same handwriting and it appears all the signatures were forged by the same individual.

It’s a mess in Missoula County. But that’s just one county. How many more “irregularities” would be found in Gallatin County, for example?

But it was at this point in the audit that Missoula County officials banned the auditors from taking photographs of the forged signatures, proving the fraud, and started to obstruct justice. They also refused to provide video they claimed was taken of the vote-counting process to ensure election integrity. They gave no reason for not releasing the footage that could absolve them of wrongdoing.

This isn’t the first time Missoula media has dealt with the accusation of voter fraud, with the Missoula Current – a Democrat rag publication – claiming in 2017 that irregularities are only “clerical errors.” Without a hint of irony, the left-leaning Missoulian de-published a 2017 op-ed claiming “there will never be voter fraud in Missoula” without an explanation, shoving the opinion down the memory hole.

However, the Montana Daily Gazette – committed to real journalism – has fished the op-ed from the Ministry of Truth trash compactor for you (it’s available on the WayBack Machine here). The headline is a tad misleading, and the op-ed was written by then-Secretary of State, Corey Stapleton, pointing out that Missoula was replete with voter fraud and, in fact, is worse than anyone imagined. The title was Stapleton’s reflection that if it’s up to Missoula County officials to designate something as voter fraud, it’s never going to happen.

Stapleton wrote of the “irregularities”…

But that’s not voter fraud, apparently. Hmm. At least that’s what Missoula County officials said. In fact, dozens of mail ballots in Missoula County did not have legal matching signatures for the May 25th special congressional election. How many of those 150 mail ballots with illegal signatures were forgeries? You will never know. How many similar cases in recent years have been prosecuted in Missoula? None.

Why would The Missoulian pull that 2017 op-ed only recently? The reasons aren’t forthcoming. Neither are the explanations by Missoula County election officials for why these ballots were counted and, in some cases, double-counted.

Montanans would be wise to stop and consider the efficacy of all mail-in voting in upcoming elections. While Democrats are hopeful that policies from the 2020 Great Coronavirus Panic will bleed into upcoming elections and set precedent for the practice, the rest of us are hoping that the Secretary of State’s office will invade Missoula with a flashlight and a can of Raid, uncovering what seedy wrong-doings persist there.

  1. I ran in Senate 46….and lost, ( or did I ? )
    I also applied to be on the Elections Board but was turned down. I fight Agenda 21, now 2030… the local government paid in to and followed by this ‘Smart Growth’ communista machine. I believe Missoulians would rather switch parties, pay lower taxes and hang on to their homes and lifestyles than give up cars, parking spaces and live in high rises at 400-600K.
    Thank you to investigators of this fraud and let’s see jail time.

  2. Jon Testor won the US Senate in 2018 by a narrow margin of 51.58% to 48.04% over Matt Rosendale.
    7% voter fraud in Missoula and one or two other cities would have made this possible.
    This probably attributed to the mess in DC that we have now! Senate 50:50
    Election Fraud Matters!
    Democrats know that they have to cheat in elections, because normal red blooded Americans would never vote for them! They need illegals, dead people and voter fraud to squeak by!
    Liberalism is a mental disorder! proof is; If they actually accomplish what they are after, they will not want it!
    Communism is responsible for in excess of 100 million deaths in the last 100 years! Only thing more deadly than Communism is disease.
    If we don’t have honest elections, then all will be lost! just look at history!
    Lets stop voter fraud in it tracks! Should be number one focus in America. (for those who love this country)
    Who has the skill set to get this completed?
    Fellow Montanan
