Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression in the 2004 Presidential Election(You need to read this!)
American Center for Voting Rights ^ | July 2005 | Mark F. “Thor” Hearne

Posted on 08/06/2005 7:18:09 AM PDT by kellynla

The American Center for Voting Rights Legislative Fund (“ACVR Legislative Fund”) is proud to present the following report as the most comprehensive and authoritative review of the facts surrounding allegations of vote fraud, intimidation and suppression made during the 2004 presidential election. Using court records, police reports and news articles, ACVR Legislative Fund presents this “after action report” which documents hundreds of incidents and allegations from around the country, notes whether a factual basis for the charge exists and assesses what actions, if any, were taken by the responsible party, law enforcement or the courts. Most importantly, ACVR Legislative Fund makes eight key recommendations that, if implemented, will secure the American election system so that all voters will have the ability to participate free of intimidation and harassment and no legitimate voter will be disenfranchised by an illegal vote. These recommendations also call for accountability for the political parties and activist groups engaged in the political process by holding them responsible for the actions of their operatives seeking to cast illegal votes or to intimidate or harass voters.

ACVR Legislative Fund found that thousands of Americans were disenfranchised by illegal votes cast on Election Day 2004. For every illegal vote cast and counted on Election Day, a legitimate voter is disenfranchised. This report documents a coordinated effort by members of some organizations to rig the election system through voter registration fraud, the first step in any vote fraud scheme that corrupts the election process by burying local officials in fraudulent and suspicious registration forms.

ACVR Legislative Fund further found that, despite their heated rhetoric, paid Democrat operatives were far more involved in voter intimidation and suppression activities than were their Republican counterparts during the 2004 presidential election.

Obviously a report from a stealth right-wing group founded by Karl Rove and Rupert Murdock.

I thought this was an excellent nonpartisan study.
Headed up by one Republican and one Democrat.
Definitely bookmark material.

Great Post!

In all, forty tires on 25 separate vehicles were slashed in the incident causing $4,192.35 of damage to the tires, plus $1,125 in towing charges. Since the damage exceeded the $2,500 threshold for a felony, the five were charged with felony “criminal damage to property,” which carries a maximum punishment of 3 1/2 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The five {DNC} defendants pleaded not guilty at their March 4 arraignments. (68) A trial was originally scheduled for mid-July, but has since been postponed until January 2006.

It appears the Democratic court system will continue to delay justice until after the next election.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) they don't both do it. Voter fraud seems to be a dominantly Dem activity, and it is very dangerous for the future course of the country.

Philadelphia, according to thieir study, had more voter fraud than any other city in the nation. The same thing happened in 2000. This does not bode well for Santorum's re-election chances in 2006 unless the Republicans stand up to the union thugs and racial hucksters in Philly. Fat chance of that happening...

This report is COMPLETELY consistent with the DOZENS of documented media reports about WIDESPREAD democrat corruption and vote fraud...

I ran this story near election time last year that documented the incredible amount of widespread democrat vote fraud and corruption:

http://www.nodnc.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=40

Fraud, deception, corruption, and perversion are the mainstays of the democratic party. Without the widespread corruption and the perverse liberal media support, the democrat / socialist party would collapse...

Well, with the unions disintegrating and the Dems still running the same playbook (and RINO's carrying their water anyway) we may see the 'RATS fade away as a party. Bill might be their last hurrah.

It will be interesting to see if Colorado or other states follow any of the recommendations.

I guess it's a truism that the left lies and accuses conservatives of doing the very things that the left is ACTUALLY doing.

I'd bet my house the NYT doesn't report this. LOL

I heard about this on AM conservative radio out of WLS today. Wanted to check and see if there was a thread on FR (I was sure there was) and had to write the name of the organization that put on the report on the back of my hand, couldn't find a piece of paper in the car, LOL.

I took a lot of pleasure in emailing this and the links to my email list...especially to the libs, Bwahaha!

I'll send this to my e-mail group, prairie. That's a good idea and we can ensure it will reach more people that way. Otherwise, folks will never hear about it.

The conservative talkshow host who was talking about it today, made a point of the part that says the GOP has some history with this.....but repudiated the practice in 1982....over twenty years ago!

(D) Partisan Tactics In Colorado Voter Registration Drives

According to a 9 News report, a voter registration group operating in Colorado under the name “Choose 2 Vote” paid workers $3 for each Democrat or independent voter they registered and nothing for Republican applications. (167) The group admitted to only being interested in Democrat registrations:

How interesting! And yet, we heard it is the conservatives who supressed the vote in 2000 and again in 2004.

But as you pointed out earlier, this is their modus operandi. They project their own reprehensible behavior and rhetoric on their "enemy" (Pubs) in a transparent attempt to fool people and shift attention.

I suppose it works with some....particularly Leno's Man on the Street types. (rolling eyes!)

BTW---off topic.

Did you see Tony Snow on the Beltway Boys last night? He subbed for Fred and he was so good...

Anyway...I wonder if he will cover this, and the Cindy Sheehan brouhaha tomorrow....I hope he is sure to point out the lies and propaganda that Sheehan is spouting...

Also, regarding this voting report...Tony needs to get ole John Conyers on his show...remember Conyers was wanting to take the whole darn House of Representatives to Ohio for congressional hearings into how the REpublicans cheated...LOL, he hee

This is very good stuff. It will take awhile to absorb.

Did anyone see any info on prosecutions for fraud in the material?

That is the key, imo, to stopping fraud. We need some hefty prison sentences....unfortunately these people usually end up with a slap on their hands by a liberal judge.

you're right, lion, about prosecutions are needed and more likely than not, it would only be a slap on the hand....so, there's never going to be deterrent.

I did see it. Tony did a fabulous job on the topic of intelligent design, to the point in which Tony had Mort concede that Mort believes in intelligent design.

Re: the voting report - a good source is John Fund, of the Wall Street Journal. In fact, he was on Special Report recently and made what I thought was a great comment; that it's virtually impossible to discern where the incompetence ends and the fraud begins.

Please don't take this personally, but I am sick of hearing that crap. They are not going away, and only need to flip 2% points of the population to win in 2008. The problem bigger than voter fraud is that Republican politicians and voters always have thier head up their A$$. They assume that they will always enough of advantage and don't bother to get tough on fraud.
