What Al Franken's Election Tells Us
Fox News ^ | July 14, 2010 | John R. Lott Jr.

Posted on 07/14/2010 11:28:55 AM PDT by JohnRLott

For those who claim that vote fraud isn't a problem, Al Franken's election to the Senate demonstrates not only that vote fraud exists but also that it can alter elections and indeed the laws of the country.

Murderers, rapists, and robbers may not be the people we want providing the crucial votes that determine what America's laws should be.

It tells me that elections can and do get fixed and the law of the land will do nothing about it.

Unless they’re going to throw Franken out of office, this is just an interesting story.

My guess - nothing will come of this fraud.

Crime pays if you have big rich liberal friends.

A small percentage of fraud is tolerable(?) until the vote is close.

As a Native Minnesotan, now living in occupied California, it is indeed a sad day when elections are stolen in front of all and no one seems to care.

It leaves a sour taste in people’s mouths and brings into serious question the integrity of the state that governs and effectively condones the theft.

It shows us that the courts are corrupt.

Al Franken was “selected not elected”. He never did have a majority.

Stolen election. The media yawned.

Rats stole the Senate fillibuster proof majority HOW many times?

Bought off Jumpin Jim.

Changed the laws regarding Ted Kennedy’s seat.

Courts handed Franken a seat.

No, it’s today, it’s just nicely hidden and wrapped in a pretty package. It won’t be long before it is fully exposed. You know the funny thing is, most Cubans didn’t realize Castro was a Communist until well after the revolution. They thought he would just take over big businesses, but would never come after small ones. Guess they figured it out when he took the small businesses and their homes and property.

That a large percentage of Minnesota voters are imbeciles

As a native Wisonsinite & now Minnesotan for the last 30 years, I have to say..... You are correct. No matter how "close" this election was, to enable Al Franken along with the corrupt assistance of Mark Ritchie MN-D Sec of State to steal the election, the point is that a huge portion of MN voters are so stupid & ignorant to vote for a buffoon clown like Al Franken in the first place. That includes highly educated imbecilies like my Phd boss as well. This is just another proof of my point, that liberals & demoRATs will vote for anyone, rapists, terrorists, thieves, etc, as long it advances their left-wing, marxist ideology & agenda. 0b0z0 could murder & eat an infant baby on national TV and he would STILL get the vote from the entire demoRAT bloc of voters. These people are not only ignorant, they are pathologically evil and need to be herded into 4-5 of the NE states & Kalifornicate, and just make their own loonie country there.

“What Al Franken’s Election Tells Us”

What Al Franken’s election SHOULD tell us is that, WE, the people, stand against this by filing criminal charges against anyone alleged to have stolen an election and against the Congress of the US to have every vote placed on any matter whatsoever that has been voted on by any fraudulent individual be thrown out as invalid.

I have regrets in my life but the regret I hold dearest is that I was unable to earn a fortune in my lifetime large enough to set aside funds to file such suits. Enough of these suits and these criminals may find themselves in the same spot that Gov. Palin found herself....being sued at every turn until their lives are turned upside down and backwards thusly forcing THEM into resigning their positions.

Turn about is fair play....screw with someone like Sarah Palin and the karma comes back to you and bites you on the behind!!

I think you are somewhat correct..
But,.. if you got all your news from:
The Red startribune
ABC
NBC
CBS
The Pioneer depressed

then you would believe Mark Dayton (ahem.. fantastic rich)
that we have not taxed enough!!!
that people are starving and without health care- because
of the EVIL george Bush and Republicans
No rebuttle so it must be true..
So.. I believe this is by design- to make Minnedopa’s
out of the sheeple.
I always ask the dufus Demorats how wealth is made?
who can vote in elections?
what was the state employment 10/or 15years ago compared to
day?
what is the state budget?

ALL BLANK STARES- they really are kept in the dark
by design

You’re right! The dumbass RAT bastard demoRAT voters either get no news or only from the flaming commie partisan media. No one is more stupid than demoRATs (well, uzzlims included)! They are pathologically stupid AND evil, which makes them even more dangerous. That includes 100% of demoRAT voters as well as their evil overlords, the demoRAT politicians. God help us! We need a 2nd American Revolution now, before it is too late. These demoRAT politician bastards deserve the gallows for high crimes & treason, beginning with the chief usurper-in-crap 0b0z0 and down to the local county registrar.

Felons voting was the LEAST of the problems.

1) Secretary of State Mark Ritchie (dem) was asked to investigate serious problems with the registration rolls, including 261,000 duplicates and 63,000 voters who had listed non-existent addresses.
2) Some 17,000 more ballots were counted in the Minnesota Senate election than there were recorded voters.
3) Outside investigators also found that 1,400 convicted felons had voted illegally.

The dems had tens of thousands of fraudulent votes and they still needed to “find” votes after the election to put Franken on top.

what did you expect him to do?....interfere in an area where he had no business?....doing so would have been national news with the SCM down his throat...sure, the election was stolen, but it was stolen by a rat, so it gets a pass....

the real reason Freak won was as I states...nearly 450,000 voteres decided to vote third party...constitutional party?...anyway you slice it, a large number of those third party voters were supposed conservative or libertarian leaning...they should have voted Coleman and they didn't givng the statist leftist Freak and his minions endless power.....

but maybe I'm deluding myself..maybe MInn. are just stupid....plain and simple...

I will take your comments as sarcasm...

if you think it is not by design.. look at the
pioneer depressed today:Buisnesses and Unions send
2.5 million to PACS

the article goes on to bash the supreme court ruling-
(it does mention the money that Mark Dayton and Family
are contrbuting) but, leaves out-
1. how much the Teachers union has been conributing Ten$$
of millions for years.
2. Leaves out AFSCME- TEN$$ of millions for years.

the article is written to show outrage in one direction-
the supreme court ruling created this new money/mess

Teachers unions and the Democrats: joined at the hip.

“Education Minnesota teachers union’s political action committee raised $832,173 for the year, according to spokesman Lonnie Hartley.
Education Minnesota spent $528,955 and ended the year with $333,458 in cash on hand.
The union started 2009 with $30,240 in the bank.”
Guess which party’s candidates got — and will get —virtually all of that money.

No, I expect him to interfere as the chief executive officer of his state who sees an egregious act of thievery taking place. This wasn't conducted in private behind closed doors, it was conducted on a very public theater with lots of media coverage so that there was no dispute about what was happening.

Timmy claims to be a conservative and believes that he is presidential material. What he did was, effectively, see a bank robbery in progress and do nothing about it because he's not a cop.

He could have called one, though, and he chose to do nothing at all. That's not leadership, in my book, that's cowardice - and the GOP has too many cowards as it is.
