Meet The Young Virginia Democrat That Registered 19 Dead People To Vote In Virginia

Tyler Durden's picture

Just yesterday we wrote about an FBI investigation into potential voter fraud in the critical swing state of Virginia after it was revealed that 19 dead people had recently been re-registered to vote (see "FBI Investigating More Dead People Voting In The Key Swing State Of Virginia").  While the Washington Post caught wind of the investigation, it was not known who was behind the operation...until now.  

Meet, Andrew Spieles, a student at James Madison University, and apparently "Lead Organizer" for HarrisonburgVOTES.  According to the Daily News-Record, Spieles confessed to re-registering 19 deceased Virginians to vote in the 2016 election cycle

While this should come as a surprise to precisely 0 people, Spieles just happens to be Democrat who, accorded to a deleted FaceBook post, apparently recently ran for Caucus Chair of the Virginia Young Democrats. 

It's too bad really, sounds like Spieles had all the right "special talents" required to be very successful politician...he just forgot the most important first rule: "Don't get caught."  

Harrisonburg Votes


The 19 applications of deceased citizens were submitted by Spieles through an organization called HarrisonburgVOTES. According to the organization's "About Us" page, HarrisonburgVOTES is a "non-partisan" voter registration organization in Harrisonburg, VA and the surrounding areas.

As the HarrisonburgVOTES webpage points out, the sole goal of the organization is to raise the number of registered voters in Harrisonburg to 25,000...though it's unclear what percentage of that goal was intended to be filled by dead voters.

The sole goal of HarrisonburgVOTES is to increase the number of registered voters in Harrisonburg and the surrounding areas to increase and encourage civic engagement.


Harrisonburg has the lowest percentage of voting age population (VAP) registered to vote among Virginia localities. Very roughly, about 17,000 people are registered to vote and about 18,000 are voting age and not registered.  The goal of HarrisonburgVOTES will be to overcome these issues and raise the number of registered voters to 25,000.

HarrisonburgVOTES was founded by Joseph Fitzgerald who, "shockingly", is also a prominent democrat in Harrisonburg.   Fitzgerald is currently Chairman of the Sixth Congressional District Democratic Committee in Virginia and the former Mayor of Harrisonburg. 

Harrisonburg Votes


Fitzgerald told reporters, of course, that his organization had no knowledge of Spieles’s actions and fired him immediately after his confession.   

“He’s smart, and he understands the [political] process,” Fitzgerald told the Daily News-Record of Spieles. “Who the hell knows what his motivations were?”

While we agree it's difficult to be 100% sure about anyone's motivations, we would be willing to put money on it having something to do with registering a bunch of dead people and then having them all vote for Hillary in November....just a hunch.

But they were among the more intelligent sector of the Democrat electorate.

They are already fighting over this kid in every prison in VA. They don't know which one he will be assigned to yet. But hey! What the hell!

Would someone slap that grin off of the asshole?  Maybe rather than an open hand use a closed fist.  Then lock him up until he rots.

Nothing is happening to him..., he's a cult hero, and will be a senator soon.

This is EXACTLY why judges throw out the Voter ID law so this kind of crookedness does not occur!

Some ass-pounding prison time may cure him.  Judging by his looks, they will be lining up for the sweet young thang.

19 is NOTHING compared to MILLIONS.

You do have to show an ID in Virginia - state law.

At least they make Republicans show one.

fleur de lis's picture

I heard somewhere that Tim Kaine changed the laws so felons can vote. 

So a snarky little punk who figured out how to register dead people is a star Democrat.

That lawless snark will end up in office.

What ever! Reps. or Dems., they both use similar tactics, legal or not.  I think the unregistered citizens are doing a service by not giving legitimacy to the circus referred to as "your civic duty".

Show us where the Republicans are doing this.

White House wants to add new racial category


WASHINGTON — The Dindu in Charge is putting forward a proposal to add a new racial category for people from the Middle East and North Africa under what would be the biggest realignment of federal racial definitions in decades.

If approved, the new designation could appear on census forms in 2020 and could have far-reaching implications for racial identity, anti-discrimination laws and health research.


Crackas will be pushed even further down the list so DO NOT check off the "carcka" box when applying for anything.

Obama loves allowing tearrists into the country as we saw in San Bernardino, Orlando, and multiple mall slaughters recently. His next step is an executive order giving tearrists special rights and privileges, as well as immunity from prosecution.


It's only fair!

JRobby's picture

His parting shot?  Nooooooo plenty more to come before he's gone.

glenlloyd's picture

Of course they were all going to vote for Hillary.

This is what stands for libtard common sense. The idea that democrats do this and probably don't think twice about it.

Deceased voters...non citizen voters corruption everywhere from top to bottom throughout system. Hmmmm...which Third World nation was on my mind?

Election will be decided by 2 million voters in 7 counties, Harrisonburg not one of them.


The poll, now with its second survey complete, shows an improvement for Trump, having flipped Jefferson County, CO to his column since early June. July topline numbers are provided below

Hillsborough County, FL: Clinton 40% / Trump 43% (Trump +3)

Jefferson County, CO: Clinton 39% / Trump 40% (Trump +1)

Watauga County, NC: Clinton 39% / Trump 46% (Trump +7)

Sandusky County, OH: Clinton 31% / Trump 42% (Trump +11)

Luzerne County, PA: Clinton 32% / Trump 55% (Trump +23)

          Loudon County, VA: Clinton 44% / Trump 41% (Clinton +3)

          Washoe County, NV: Clinton 36% / Trump 48% (Trump +12)

Trump has 10k at rallies with 4K unable to get in.

Hillary Rally, are ya kidding me?

What are the odds this even gets any legs on the MSM, let alone the debates given the moderators and everyone behaind them is in the tank for more of the status quo a.k.a #CrookedHillary.

This should incense both candidates and parties, and people should be spitting nails. But, that won't happen.

Did anybody poll these dead non-partisan Virginians on how they intend to vote?/sarc

So is Spieles going to jail? If not, why not? When do they plan to arrest him? What's his bail? Aren't they going to "make an example of him"? Why not?

What a fuckin' joke.

nmewn's picture

Well my guess is (not completely tongue in cheek), young Mr.Spieles will be treated just like every other Hillary supporter or staffer involved in a crime or a conspiracy to cover up a crime that still happens to be breathing and among the living...

...he'll be granted immunity from prosecution by Comey & Low-Renta on the condition (and this is important) that he asserts his Fifth Amendment right should anyone have the temerity to place him under an oath of truthiness.

Now, I want everyone to just think about this for a moment, in this country, in the year 2016, we have arrived at a point in time where the target of an investigation (Hillary) is said by the nations "top law enforcement officials" to be innocent of any crime and everyone around her who was involved in said crime OR who were involved in the destruction of evidence of said crime, have now been given immunity from prosecution.

And they want to talk about "law"?

They have handled the situation.  He was promoted.

Um, no. If there is an election, it will be decided by various electors. Serfs are involved in the popular vote which picks the electors. Electors can vote for whomever they want. They can be bought off, threatened or whatever. Though illegal, it shouldn't surprise anyone that it happens.

He, like Wasserman, is probably proud of his crime and brags, "I took one for the tribe."


Hopefully, he goes to jail for 10 years for voter fraud. Bubba will like running his fingers thru his blond hair.

fleur de lis's picture

He will never spend a day in jail.

He will end up elected or appointed as a Democrat officeholder.

All this talk of threats in dangerous and unamerican. Sure, he registered dead people to vote, but there is no evidence he intended to actually have them vote, so in these circumstances no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges against him. Also, vote fraud is another myth by right wing conspiracy theorists.

- James Comey.

The noose will straighten Comey out.

Carl, I smtimes disagree w your comments but i have to say that: right there was really Good Sarc. Much better than MDB's as of late. I still think he is not the Same MDB as we used to read years ago- it's a stand-in...

Mareka's picture

Used to write this sort of thing off as conspiracy theory but now believe it has always been standard Democrat Party operating procedure.

The upper ranks like Wasserman-Schultz are beyond reform.

Trump needs billboard space in all swing states posting criminal penalties for voter fraud to get the message to the footsoldiers & the masses.

This kid probably considers the whole thing a game.

He needs to be the voter fraud prosecution poster child.

A nice shot of his girly white ass walking onto the prision yard would make a good billboard.

Given how no dead people were used to rig the HRC primaries, don't get fooled by this incident.  It's used to distract how they will *actually* rig the election.  And wouldn't be surprised if the GOP were doing it in their gerrymandered states as well.  Both parties are under intense pressure by those that own them to make sure the will of the people will be minimized and not allowed to interfere with vetted establishment cronies rising to power.  Without controlling the government, the 1% cannot amass, or even maintain their existing, wealth.  What we are seeing is growing desperation.

Just look at the reaction of the Chicago board of electors during the Democratic primaries.  That's how the fraud will be done and it will be bipartisan.  Why else would "big name" Republicans be publicly pushing Clinton?

Dorado's picture

Yeah, because without vote fraud Bill Gates would obviously become poor.  what an idiotic statement.  The majority of the wealthiest people are so because they own the means of production and productive assets.  A presidential vote isn't going to change that unless the gubmint decides to go even more extra constitutional and nationalize their companies, seize 5heir assets, etc.  None of us want that right?  Right?

you obviously have never heard of "carpetbaggers".  Or --how to get rich of the backs off others through the use of graft and gov't.
