Skip to comments.Harry Reid stealing the election in Nevada
Posted on 10/25/2010 1:12:40 PM PDT by pabianice
I have some very grave news for you. We are leading Harry Reid in the polls and meeting our early vote goals--and yet, Sharron Angle could still lose.
As Sharron Angle's campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks, of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor.
Two days ago, the Democratic Secretary of State announced that voters can be provided "free food" at "voter turnout events." Harry Reid has been offering free food and, according to other reports, some Democratic allies such as teachers' unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid.
Before we were even able to document the reported infractions to report to the authorities, the Democrat Secretary of State slammed the door shut on preventing this behavior and issued a public statement permitting these ACORN-style tactics. THESE are the kinds of shenanigans that can turn this race... Harry Reid intends to steal this election if he can't win it outright. As a result, we need to deploy literally dozens of election law attorneys and poll watchers to combat these tactics ...
Understand, EVERYTHING we have worked for in the last year could be destroyed by dirty tricks and criminal acts in the next 8 days. As Sharron's first line of defense on these matters I am absolutely committed to making sure this won't happen...
What Harry Reid is doing is clearly illegal. Nevada law (NRS 293.700) provides that, A person who bribes, offers to bribe, or use and other corrupt means, directly or indirectly, to influence any elector in giving his or her vote or to deter the elector from giving it is guilty of a category D felony and shall be punished as provided in NRS 193.130.
We've seen evidence of this sort of voter 'enticement' by groups such as ACORN - where, in 2008, two ACORN workers in Milwaukee were accused of offering pre-paid gasoline cards or restaurant gift cards to people in exchange for registration.
John Fund wrote in his book Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, cited reports from the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader (South Dakota) and the election in 2004, where certain residents were quoted saying that "people on the streets were saying you go vote, they would give you gas money, $10, maybe a pack of cigarettes..."
Now, this week in Las Vegas, at our election hotline, we received reports that some teachers' union representatives were offering Starbucks cards to people to get them to vote for Harry Reid. It is even more disturbing and may be possible that they are using their influence and authority as educators to entice students on behalf of Reid.
Heres the bottom line: when the powerful are threatened, they will do anything to retain their position. It's clear now that Harry Reid's campaign is even willing to skirt the laws of Nevada to do it.
Is there any question that they will do the same on Election Day?
The right to vote is a precious one - and it carries with it somber responsibilities. The Democrats' willingness to allow voters to be enticed with a promise of any thing of value is a debasement of the process- and it may just destroy everything we've worked for...
Counsel to Friends of Sharron Angle Republican Nominee for U.S. Senate, Nevada
P.S. I've been in this business a long time. I have never before been so convinced that a candidate would reach so low in order to be victorious. Let's do this for Sharron and all her hard work.
What happens in the booth stays in the booth. I’ll take all the freebees I can, and then vote as I see fit.
Free food? I didn’t know that ‘Sh!# Sandwhiches’ were in such demand in Nevada. Well bon a petite! You are what you eat.
for “Sharron and all her hard work”?????!!!!!! How about “let’s do this for our state and our country”????!!!!!!
We’re not voting for her for her sake, but for ours!
Doesn’t the Constitution mandate punishment for treason?
Some Democrats and some pollsters have been predicting big Democrat wins, trying to inoculte against the outrage of massive voter fraud. They’re recruiting illegals to vote in Washington state as well.
If I lived in Nevada, I’d take the free gift card, and then vote for Angle. Who knows how many others are doing the same thing
las vegas was a hotbed of fraud in 2008. someone should have been ready for this.
Illegal but typical vote buying scumbag Dem move.
Hope it gets a lot of press there and results in backlash.
That’s clearly “something of value” to entice a vote.
The correct response to this is for Freepers and conservatives of all flavors go vote a straight Republican ticket and then attempt to eat everything on the table. Run them out of gift cards.
Make them spend big money.
The democrat party is a criminal enterprise. When the secretary of state or other high official is a democrat in a state, you cannot expect the law to be followed if breaking it will enable the democrat criminal enterprise to continue in power. If Harry gets re-elected, perhaps he will have a heart attack and not live long enough to come back to the Senate, but don’t count on it because evil thrives where criminals run the state.
“Ill take all the freebees I can, and then vote as I see fit.”
Two can play the Cloward-Piven game. All Republicans ought to take whatever bribes are being handed out, and then go vote for Angle.
“If I lived in Nevada, Id take the free gift card, and then vote for Angle. Who knows how many others are doing the same thing.”
None. This is to get the union people and the illegals out to vote.
Wow history repeating..Hitler use to do this too.
If true, Hannity and Levin need to call this out.
Google "free food rides to vote". Amazing.
Am I finally allowed to advocate violence? No... well, OK.
Absolutely illegal and morally bankrupt.
Win or lose he and those responsible must be brought to trial!
As a thought, why don’t Freepers log onto the various lib sites, posing a libbers, and complain about how disappointed you are in the democrats inability to pass things like comprehensive immigration reform, cap and trade, even longer jobless benefits, more stimulus, etc. Say the you are unemployed and someone just has to help, you are running out of benefits, You don’t know what you are going to do, you just cannot continue to support the Dems because they have not done enough. Maybe you just won’t vote this time.
