Voter fraud uncovered in New Mexico
Washington Times ^

Posted on 11/09/2004 11:29:18 AM PST by No Dems 2004

Washington, DC, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Observers watching the counting of New Mexico's 2004 provisional and absentee ballots have uncovered evidence of voter fraud, Opinion Journal said Tuesday.

O.J. political diarist John Fund said the Bernalillo County clerk "told media outlets that observers had discovered instances of voter fraud" during the attempt to qualify 18,000 provisional and absentee ballots cast in last week's presidential election.

"In counting the first 5,000 provisional ballots," Fund reported, "observers turned up 53 instances of individuals voting more than once. They also found four voters who were dead and dozens of felons attempting to vote. In two cases, the same individual tried to vote three times: early, absentee and on Election Day."

Well, well, well. It doesn't sound so good for those 155,000 provisional ballots in Ohio, does it?

These two people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Stuff like this should be on Greta's show, not the Scott Peterson trial.

I am sure if it is coming from John Fund it is the Democrat Vote Fraud Machine in full effect. Bill Richardson learned from the best criminal in the world.

We're talking about ILLEGAL ballots that should be thrown out. What I meant to say is that a lot of the Ohio provisional ballots will probably be thrown out as garbage, just like in New Mexico.

Provisional ballots are questionable ballots to begin with. If any are fraudulant, they are discarded and are a none vote. Since Bush is ahead, this can't hurt him but can hurt Kerry's chances of catching up.

Additional information to contemplate.

Results from the NM Legislative Information Technology Oversight Committee 11/08/2004

Background: Approximately 18 months ago we who sit on the Committee requested that an intrusion test be completed to determine vulnerabilities to our state IT systems. Numerous deficiencies were identified and many corrective recommendations were made.

Yesterday’s meeting: The former Deputy of the State Office of Chief Information Officer who has since moved over to the State Home Land Security Office and who took his responsibilities for network security with him testified before the committee. When asked if there were any IT systems in State Agencies that were vulnerable to outside attack and manipulation he would only answer “Yes”. When asked which Agencies were vulnerable he replied that as the meeting was an open public meeting he could not answer, as it would expose the state. When asked if the recommended corrective actions had been implemented he said that it was unknown as no further intrusion testing had been conducted but that it appeared that the recommendations had not been implemented. When asked if the Secretary of State (SOS) systems had been a one of the subjects of the original intrusion testing he indicated that it had. He refused to answer if the SOS had implemented the recommended security changes. When asked if the SOS systems were being monitored, he indicated that they were and that monitoring of the SOS systems started three weeks ago.

Result: The Information Technology Oversight Committee will hold an unscheduled closed executive meeting in December so that members of the Legislature can find out just how pervasive the lack of security is in reference to the state’s IT systems and networks. Additionally, indication is that the SOS froze out members of the Office of the Chief Information Officer who could have helped secure the SOS voter IT systems. Insisting only she and the vendor of the IT system work on the problem. All indications are that the problems at the SOS have not been resolved and therefore that is way the Office of the Chief Information Officer began monitoring the SOS systems. Making matters worse is that the SOS is not sharing what she knows about her system or is allowing any information to be released to other state agencies as to the security of her systems.

It is unknown if the SOS systems have been compromised, however it does appear that the possibility exist.

I'm not familiar with the politics in Ohio but it comes as no surprise to find voter fraud in New Mexico. Bill Richardson is an anti-american zealot who would do anything to secure democrat control of the Government - including ignoring the majority of NM constituency who voted for Bush.

Congress needs to pass a law that makes voter fraud a Class One Felony.

Right now it is a Class Five Felony, and it used to be just a Misdemeanor.

Vote fraud is treason---it should be prosecuted as such.

Now you know why that slimball Eric Holder said on Fox before the election that "if ALL the ballots are counted in Ohio, John Kerry will win."

It was because they knew ahead of time how many ballots they had already cast threw absentee and provincal!

This wouldn't happen in Detroit. The democrats who count the ballots would have signed different names to each provisional ballot and corrected the ones that weren't for Kerry.

Glad to see it's finally making national headlines. Every time the NM GOP legislators try to make showing an ID for registering and voting part of our election code, the Rats yell "intimidation". One way or another, I expect something to be done to stop this crap, especially that we have the votes in Congress to pass national voting standards.

The perpetrators should be found and prosecuted.

As long as these people know that they are safe from paying any penalty, they will become more and more flagrant in their corrupt activities.

That's one of the major purposes of punishment: to deter future crimes. Bush has to pass the word down that he is serious about cleaning up the election process.

"observers turned up 53 instances of individuals voting more than once. They also found four voters who were dead and dozens of felons attempting to vote. In two cases, the same individual tried to vote three times: early, absentee and on Election Day."

The Democrats will try to turn their own fraud around to attempt to invalidate the election. They will fail, and they incur some risk if the trail of the fraud leads back to them.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

This is the way to address the problem. People who obviously voted fraudulently need to be prosecuted. No plea deals, but pursued to the full punishment allowed by law.

I don't care if these are super-pro-Bush voters or Kerry voters or just nutso Nader voters. We allow ONE vote for ONE citizen. People who are cheating need to pay big fines and/or go to jail (whatever the law allows for).

Then, these folks need to be made an example of in the media. I want to see whiny interviews of their relatives on the news about how mean the punishment is. I want to see articles in the Wash Times about the punishment. I want to hear left and right talk radio make a mockery of these people's names. I want to see websites set up to publicise the names of those convicted of this crime.

Yes it did. At the end it states that the Secretary of State in NM kicked the republicans out. Why else would she kick them out?

Democrats?........the article goes on to say

"The issue is not likely to die a quiet death. New Mexico Secretary of State Rebecca Vigil-Giron asked the state supreme court Monday to overturn a lower court ruling allowing Republican observers into the polls in Sandoval and Dona Ana counties. Vigil-Giron, a Democrat and elected official, is also seeking permission to evict the observers the Bernalillo County clerk allowed in to watch the counting, contending that New Mexico law does not provide for observers to be part of the review process."

It also makes you wonder why Kerry did not challenge the vote in Ohio. With Blackwell (a GOP) at the helm, I have a feeling that most of the Provisionals will be thrown out. I think there was a case where some guy turned voter applications with names like Mary Poppins.

Thanks much demlosers...I am following this with much interest, I have been crying foul since election night on the 13K Howlin live thread...

Something sneaky about Richardson and his Sec-of=State protests too much...I hope someone gets thrown in jail (I wonder if Gov. Richardson is quaking...)...The nightb efore the election Richardson was way to stoic in the face of Polls that were pointing at winning Bsh momentum in NM...

They should be prosecuted. I am not sure, but if they were convicted, my guess is election fraud in a federal election is a felony, and they would relinquish their voting priviliges for future elections. Any lawyers know if this is a felony crime?

If several hundred thousand voters pulled this stunt and get caught, imagine the impact on the next election results. :^) Voter fraud, the gift that keeps on giving....

Count Wisconsin, too - tons of fraud, lots of disenfranchisement activities by the DemoncRATs, slashing tires of the fleet of RNC GOTV vehicles, etc.. If Wisconsin went Bush (only 5K votes needed) then Ohio wouldn't even be necessary (take that libs!)

93,000 provisional ballots in Ohio were thrown out 'cause they were considered worthless and actually not worth the paper they were written on.

Looks like NM appears to be another bunch of cheaten rats in several counties. Hope the Republicans continue to work to put a stop to the rats trying to steal that state from Bush.

Richardson is this your work in trying to steal NM for the rats?
