Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani has claimed that there will be fraudulent voting in the upcoming election.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Giuliani spoke about his experience firsthand with voter fraud and how this experience with it has cemented his opinion that not only will voter fraud take place, it’ll be a major factor in certain areas on election day.

“When I ran for mayor in New York City, some people voted eight or 10 times,” Giuliani said to Jake Tapper, and he went on to describe the ways in which he apparently prevented cheating in the following New York mayoral election.
“I’m sorry, dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans,” said Giuliani. “You want me to [say] that I think the election in Philadelphia and Chicago is going to be fair? I would have to be a moron to say that.”
Giuliani has been one of Donald Trump’s staunchest allies in the 2016 presidential election, and it seems he agrees with Donald Trump’s theories involving massive voter fraud, which have been debunked but still remain as one of the Republican nominee’s heaviest complaints.
“I can’t sit here and tell you that they don’t cheat. And I know that because they control the polling places in these areas. There are no Republicans, and it’s very hard to get people there who will challenge votes,” Giuliani said. “I’ve found very few situations where Republicans cheat. They don’t control the inner cities the way Democrats do. Maybe if Republicans controlled the inner cities, they’d do as much cheating as Democrats do.”
“I think there are a lot of elections experts that would have very, very strong disagreements with you,” responded Tapper to Giuliani’s claims.
“Well then, they never prosecuted elections fraud,” Giuliani replied.
