DENVER -- Forgery charges have been filed against an Aurora man accused of submitting 48 false voter registration forms to state officials.
John Samuel MaCarthy, 27, faces four counts of forgery and one count of procuring false registration.
He's accused of submitting fake registration forms for people in Arapahoe, Jefferson and Denver counties while working for a voter registration collection business known as Choose 2 Vote. He had forged voter registration documents or falsely registered residents with the intent to defraud his Lakewood employer, said Attorney General Ken Salazar.
The 48 false registrations occurred between April 19 and April 22 and were discovered during the course of the investigation -- before they were ever filed with election authorities.
Investigators say neither the employer nor the people whose names were on the forms were aware of his activities.
No primary election races were affected.
MaCarthy is currently in Denver County Jail on unrelated charges.
The investigation was launched after clerks questioned forms listing nonexistent addresses, and others with similar signatures. They turned over 59 allegedly false registration documents.
The multi-jurisdiction investigation continues concerning a limited number of additional allegedly false Denver and Arapahoe County registration documents, and a small number of Adams County registration documents, the attorney general's office said.
The forgery charges could bring up to three years in prison and a $100,000 fine. Procuring false registration is a misdemeanor.
The forgery charges could bring up to three years in prison and a $100,000 fine......or a position with the DNC, or at least moveon.org
It would be interesting to know if he was a democrat, which would not surprise me
And he was working for what party? Anyone. Anyone.
since they didn't say and it was dishonesty you can pretty well rest assured that he was a dem.
Let the games begin. I can hardly wait to see the impact of the illegal votes here in Vegas. The Dems have been registering them in the bars, corners etc. with scant proof of ID.
We're in serious trouble unless this stuff is stopped. Close the borders, deport illegals and fry anyone found committing voter fraud.
kerry and the DNC are going to hi-jack this election.
Salazar is the 'rat candidate for Senator ( vs Coors ). I'm guessing that this guy was making up fakes because he got paid per registration.
If you see a story like this and no party is mentioned, it is always a Democrat. Always. ALWAYS.
If he had been Republican, the story would have said so in the headline, the first sentence, twice more in the first paragraph, and at least once in every subsequent paragraph....
We need everyone to have to show an ID. I know, I know , the old ladiy can't drive. Those people need to be assessed by the monitors of both parties and approved or not. It wouldn't hurt to have a border patrol and LE present too. Illegals and felons would think twice. JMO
They are sure going to try to steal it. This election will make Ferdinand Marcos's elections look positively straight up.
Well if we all let them think we are going to vote for Kerry, when polled, they won't know how many votes they need and might still come up short.
Unfortunately democracy seems too easy to defraud... time to go back to Tribal Councils, lol
Sure sounds like he was working for the Democrats, Moveon.org, or ACT.
The forgery charges could bring up to three years in prison and a $100,000 fine..............X 48 counts I hope !
Here is another rat fraud case!
Had to be the Democratic Party, because it was mentioned.
speaking of polls, I tried to find the story on the little imp who was scamming on voter registrations. here is a poll the aurora sentinel had on their site. go to the bottom of the page and click on reader poll.
if it was the Reps, we would be having breaking news on all the news and radio stations. helicopters would be flying over our homes telling us what a horrible stunt W is pulling on us.
Easy-peasy! The neocommunist, ultra-left media will determine that, if McCarthy is a Republican, this is a story the goes all the way up to the White House and demands extensive public scrutiny and examiniation. If he is a dem, then we shoulld put this behind us and move on.
Since the news channel never mentions the party he worked for, its definitely the Democratic Party. If he was working for the Republican Party, it would have been mentioned in every sentence.
It's so pathetic that the news station doesn't even say he was a Democrat. As if it isn't relevant to the story.
I've heard twice now that there are 46,000 people who are registered (and have voted) in BOTH New York and Florida. It was a headline in (I think) the NY Post in the last day or two. They voted something like 88% Democrat and 12% Pubbie.This has got to be stopped NOW!!! 40,480 extra Democrat votes (86% of 46M) could swing the Florida vote over to the dark side.
That is very stupid. Why would he do that?
[since they didn't say and it was dishonesty you can pretty well rest assured that he was a dem.]
No mystery here.
Do black helicopters speak in Ebonics?
Seriously, this "choose2vote" outfit looks pretty sleazy. More information about them here, near the top of the page. And the web site "http://www.choose2vote.org" is borken. Looks like they "work" for the highest bidder, not necessarily by political persuasion.
Just a hunch, but I don't think this is your standard RAT fraud operative, just your garden variety crook out to make a fast buck. Now, I MIGHT question the motive of the one who enlisted him to obtain these "votes." I'm guessing the guy was paid by the head.
I am willing to bet several thousand dollars and several body parts that he's a Democrat...
One of the biggest reasons that the scumbags are desperate to get rid of Bush is because they know that if Bush gets another four years - - and stays in charge of Justice and the FBI - - the jig is up for them as far as vote fraud and campaign-fund laundering schemes are concerned.
Of course, the other big reason is that there will finally be some Supreme Court retirements. Add to that another four years of Bush appointing honest judges who respect the US Constitution and it is easy to see why the scumbag Democrats are gasping for air and wild-eyed with hate. They are sure they are dying.
A Bush reelection will absolutely kill them.
A Bush reelection is essential to the successful future of this nation.
That is so blatantly true. My boss and I were talking about this at work. The McGreevey thing in NJ didn't mention he was a D until the last paragraph and we both agreed had he been a Pubbie it would have been mentioned in every sentence.
Anyone, Democrat or Republican, who does this, either personally voting twice, or does fraudulent registering, should be convicted of a felony and jailed.
Of course, since 88% of them are Dems, the Republican majorities in the House and Senate would probably increase by 10%.
HA! no kidding.
The group he was working for is another of the Dem front groups. And can you imagine the outrage if the line about him already being in jail on an unrelated charge were said about a Republican?
Of course he had to be a democrat signing up more fake democrats.
The writer would have made mention of republican in every paragraph if possible.
Looks like they don't want visitors at their website either.
that was my question, like we dont' know!
Or be like California and give them licenses and let the vote.
In California we will give them the ID and let the register at the same DMV office.
This is not the first case of people affiliated with "Choose2Vote' being investigated and/or indicted for voter registration fraud. Howard Brewer and Derrick Lee are two names I'm aware of , in cases that go back to last Spring. It looks like it's just another sneaky Dem manouver to somehow slip illegitimate names onto the voter rolls, thinking that no one would DARE question the idealism of the young Black men doing the petition/name- gathering.
The report I read said that there were 46,000 registered
in both states and that 68 percent are Democrats. However,
a much smaller number apparently actually VOTED in both
states in the same election. I think it was something
In other words, only a few of the 46,000 are real
criminals engaged in vote fraud. The rest, it seems,
are just trying to vote in Florida if they're there
at the time of an election and in New York if they're
in that state in an election. While they're still
violating the law, it doesn't really threaten Bush ...
unless of course it's as close in Florida as it was
It would also be interesting to know how many people
are simultaneously registered in Florida and any other
state. More, though, would probably be Republicans.
Gee, what a surprise.
I checked to see what a person needs to register to vote in Pennsylvania...
<> NO address...a PO Box is okay!!
<> NO photo ID
<> NO social security number
<> NO verifiable form of identification
<> NO telephone number
It made me sick!!
Somehow I can't see that a black guy would be registering Republicans.
That's New York City. It doesn't count the snow-birds from the rest of New York state, or Connecticut, or Massachusetts, or Rhode Island, or New Jersey, or Pennsylvania, or Maine, or Vermont, or New Hampshire.
Get the picture? Our voting system is corrupt. Period. Your vote doesn't mean a damned thing.
