Posted on 01/27/2012 1:01:21 PM PST by rustyweiss74
On Wednesday, the first witness called to testify in the upstate New York ballot fraud case, Jermaine Joseph, provided the expected testimony - ballots were filled out on his behalf, votes were cast across a straight Democrat party line, etc.
But an interesting caveat was also revealed, something Joseph did not provide in his grand jury testimony - He claims he was paid for his troubles. According to his testimony, Joseph was handed $10 for grocery shopping.
Today, another witness in the trial has given the same exact story.
Donell Patterson claims that he was asked to sign an absentee ballot, which he did. Once the Democrats had a signature secured, they would fill out the remainder of the ballot with false information. So far, this has led to perpetual misspellings of names, and ballots with excuses for why the victim would be out of town or unable to vote. Problem being, the witnesses were never in the location that the ballot says they were.
In the end, Paterson was also handed $10 by a man fitting the same description as the first witness - a tall, bald man from City Hall.
In essence, the victims here were unwittingly signing over their civil right to cast votes in the elections, at a price of $10.
That's what Democrats in Troy, NY feel about the right to vote - a right that people have died to ensure in this country, a right in which some people are still spilling blood for.
A gallon of milk and a box of cereal. For your vote.
Here's an added scary thought: Mentioned during yesterday's testimony by a State Police Investigator, was a statement from a political operative, Tony DeFiglio.
DeFiglio claimed that what was going on with the absentee ballots, had been happening for '25 years.'

Who is keeping track of voter fraud now?
Former Troy City Clerk William A. McInerney, right, pleads guilty to signing a voters signature to a Working Families Party (associated with ACORN) absentee ballot in Rensselaer County Court in Troy, N.Y.
And the beat goes on.
Someone here said it best last week: vote tampering should be a hanging offence. It strikes at the heart of our democratic process. I absolutely agree with that commentary...kill lady liberty and you may as well join the ranks of those looking for a despot.
