Man Says He Found 83 Ballots Addressed To One House

A man in San Pedro, California, says he found a stack of 83 unused 2016 ballots addressed to his 89-year-old neighbor's house.

“I think this is spooky," said Jerry Mosna -- the man who found the ballots -- reports Independent Journal Review. "All the different names, none we recognize, all at one address.”

His wife, Magdalena, agreed.

“Eighty people can’t fit in that apartment," she chimed in.

So Mosna, now suspicious this was a case of voter fraud, brought the ballots to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The police department told him to go to the post office and bring the issue up with the county registrar.

"We are carefully reviewing our records and gathering information to fully identify what took place," the registrar stated. "Our preliminary assessment is that this appears to be an isolated situation related to a system error that occurred causing duplicate ballots to be issued to an address entered for a single voter. We are working directly with the system vendor to ensure the issue is addressed and to identify any similar occurrences."

It wouldn't be the first time cries of voter fraud were heard over what turned out to be innocuous situations.

In Ohio, one woman reported a man taking notes and photos of gravestones at a cemetery, believing he was engaging in voter fraud.

Frank Flack, the man she saw, was later detained by police but proved their assumptions false.

"Sorry to dispel your conspiracy theory on voter fraud,'" Flack said. "If you would have stopped and talked to me, I could have let you know that I am a registered Republican!"

In the multiple ballot case, some are not convinced the 83 ballots was not a simple clerical error, and demand more answers.

"I know of this happening on 2 separate occasions here in Iowa, I call bs on the 'isolated incident', this is what they do to win elections," one man wrote on Conservative Daily's Facebook page.

"Why wouldn't this be picked up by postal inspectors?" another asked. "[Eighty] ballots going to about any place but a nursing home or military base should seem suspicious to anyone."
