RNC Launches No More Frankens Website
Publius Forum ^ | 10/29/10 | Warner Todd Huston

There is little doubt that Al Franken's namesake is a perfect analogy because he is certainly a Frankenstein of a Senator. When he barely won the Senate seat for the Democrats in Minnesota over incumbent Norm Coleman several years ago it was painfully obvious that major improprieties and problems marred that election. His win was cobbled together from various "dead" sources, if you will. As the RNC says, Franken's election "serves as a glaring and painful reminder to voters that we can never take any election for granted."

Today it certainly seems that we are on the precipice of a great Republican surge. Every poll, even those that favor Democrats, say that the GOP is poised to make great gains on the local, state and national level. But we cannot rest on our election day vote alone. As we've so often seen, GOP wins repeatedly turned to slight loses with post election day chicanery.

The Republican National Committee wants to keep all Republicans aware of this looming situation, too.

The RNC is launching a new website to address this situation. "In order to protect our hard-fought victories, we must fund and operate a winning ground game which puts the margin of victory out of reach," RNC Chair Michael Steele says in a press release...

Will there be needless excerpts there I wonder?

I'll never ever forget Gov. Tim Pawlenty going on a national radio show declaring that the whole election review process involving Franken and Colman was totally clean and void of any shenanigans.

In my mind, Pawlenty allowed Franken and the Democrats to walk off with the election in the same way a criminal walks out of a store with pilfered merchandise. And that is why I view Pawlenty as a weenie and decidedly NOT of presidential timber.

The only reason Franken is in Congress: election fraud!

Pawlenty even just comes across as soft.

And Franken won some of Ben Stein’s money.

Pawlenty makes regular appearances on national talk radio shows, and appears to be positioning himself for a presidential run. It baffles me that the hosts rarely if ever bring this issue up, because IMHO, his lack of spine in dealing with the obvious fraud that occurred in the Coleman/Franken fiasco is a disqualification for higher office.

Indeed. He and Mitt have been doing the most Iowa-visiting and other traditional groundwork. Why is it so rare for the GOP to nominate a candidate with philosophical principle and political backbone?

The GOP must set up a website where We The People can report VOTER FRAUD with a way to submit evidence. There must be professionals hired to investigate the voter fraud and attorneys to carry it forward to prosecution.

I’m sure there are patriots who are retired law enforcement and retired military who would be willing to help in the investigation and ongoing effort to ensure that we stop the enemies of freedom from destroying our country via voter fraud!

Riiiiight.....like that'll ever happen. The integrity of the ballot box (HAH!) is set up just the way BOTH parties want it and will remain so until Americans choose to use the "third box."

If we don’t insist on shutting down voter fraud perpetrated by thugs and goons and this Regime, we’re doomed to becoming slaves to the state! Corruption is pervasive and we must destroy it just as our forefathers fought tyranny and evil going back to 1776. Wimps and defeatests need not call themselves Americans.

Our brave troops are fighting our enemies in foreign lands, we can do no less by fighting our enemies at home.

I believe this too, and that's why I'd never vote for Pawlenty. He's a weak go-along-to-get-along politician. And you could say that Pawlenty, by giving us Franken, gave us Obamacare.

I seriously doubt they could do a better job of that than is being done by the self appointed nattering nabobs in the "conservative" blogosphere.

This is a huge problem. If we win an election in a state where the Sec.of State is a dem its not an automatic win. They can screw with the votes and then try and blame us. Its and old trick they keep using.

We have to be ready for anything they throw at us. And they never stop throwing.

Remember the Democrat party is based on lies, distortions and love of Marxism,this is their party.

Pat Quinn has to be the latest example of an “Al Franken”. There is no way his election was legit. He has as much legitimacy as Franken or Christine Gregorie.

Quinn had pledged to raise taxes and had been tied at the hip of Blagojevich, becoming an “accidential governor” when Blago got impeached and removed. Quinn put 1300 criminals back on the streets. Every poll, since Bill Brady won the primary back in Februrary, had him ahead by a 6-7% lead, more than the margin of error. And if the RATs had just produced a great ground game and gotten EVERYONE out to vote RAT, then all the other Republicans would have seen these totals reduced by 6-7% like Brady’s. All the Republicans running outside Crook County did exactly how they were expected to do. Mark Kirk won large votes in the Crook County suburbs whereas Brady did terribily in the Crook County suburbs, despite the fact Brady had campaigning throughout the suburbs for months and Kirk gave us the middle finger and never appeared here once. In my township, Brady signs outnumbered Quinn signs 3-to-1 and yet the numbers say Brady only got 38% of the vote here. I suspect at least 25,000 fraudulent ballots were cast for Quinn here. Brady won 99 out of the state’s 102 counties, but was crushed in Crook County. I’m ashamed to be from Crook County, the one-party demonrat hellhole.

This ad a week before the election exposed Quinn for selling his soul to the combine and his corruption with the union goons. They were convinced Brady HAD to be stopped by any means neccessary. He had promised a “clean break” for Illinois, and the Chicago machine says this state ain’t ready for reform:

Whatever one thinks of Mark Kirk, we can all agree that Brady’s cliffhanger loss is suspicious.
