WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 08, 2016) - A soon-to-be-released book by New York Times bestselling author Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton warns that America may now be facing the greatest voter fraud danger in recent history. And it lays the blame for the crisis directly at the feet of President Barack Obama and his Justice Department.
The book -- Clean House (to be released August 30 from Simon & Schuster/Threshold Editions) -- cites examples nationwide of attempts by the Obama Justice Department to thwart efforts to clean up voter rolls, require voter ID at the polls, and prevent voter intimidation. In a chapter titled "Voter Fraud – Stealing Elections – The Danger of Voter Fraud and the Fight for Election Integrity," Fitton describes major legal battles to protect voter integrity in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maryland, and Indiana.

The book's explosive "Voter Fraud" chapter reveals that:
- In Indiana, the Obama/Holder Justice Department opposed federally mandated efforts to clean up the voter lists -- despite publicly available information showing that "the number of people listed on voter registration roles in 12 Indiana counties exceeded 100 percent of the total number of residents of voting age in those counties." -- page 129
- In Florida, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit in 2012 to stop the state's efforts to comply with the National Voting Rights Act by removing "53,000 registered voters who were dead -- as well as an additional 2,700 noncitizens." -- page 134
- And in Pennsylvania, when the New Black Panther Party stood in a doorway of a polling place clad in black paramilitary uniforms, brandishing a nightstick, arguing with passersby, and shouting racial insults at poll watchers, "the case was abruptly curtailed and all but shut down by the newly appointed officials of the Obama administration." -- page 120
According to Clean House, America's voter fraud crisis is both widespread and widely recognized. The book cites a recent Pew Research Center study revealing that "approximately 2.75 million people have active voter registrations in more than one state" and "20 million -- one of every eight -- active registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate." And it cites a Rasmussen poll from August 2013 reporting that "only 39 percent of Americans believe elections are fair."
"We have all heard about voter fraud and the attempts by liberal media organs like the New York Times and Ivory Tower academics to dismiss it as a nonexistent problem," writes Fitton in the "Voter Fraud" chapter. "But is it real, widespread, and substantial to the point that it can decide elections. It also drives honest citizens out of the democratic process and breeds distrust in our government."
