Angle Lawyer Requests DOJ Investigation of Reid Campaign, Harrah’s
National Review Online ^ | 11/2/2010 | Katrina Trinko

Posted on 11/02/2010 4:15:13 PM PDT by mojito

Cleta Mitchell, Republican senate candidate Sharron Angle’s legal counsel, sent a letter to the Department of Justice today, requesting an investigation into whether the coordination between Democrat senate candidate Harry Reid’s campaign’s and Harrah’s revealed voter intimidation in violation of federal law.

Referring to an article by Battle ‘10’s Elizabeth Crum about the e-mails between Reid’s campaign and Harrah’s, Mitchell wrote in the letter that “The posting details and documents an orchestrated effort by Harrah’s … to intimidate and coerce Harrah’s employees to vote for Harry Reid for the United States Senate, to track whether or not employees had or had not voted and to pressure supervisors to ensure that the employees reporting to those supervisors were voting.”

“And these overt activities were specifically demanded by one or more persons who work for Sen. Reid,” she added. “The evidence shows that Harrah’s management has continually communicated to employees their concern with electing Harry Reid and not just to ensure that the employees voted for the candidates of their choice.”

Mitchell also noted that she had filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission last week about union intimidation of voters. That complaint noted that union employees had hung about polling locations while their members were inside voting, and had sometimes monitored inside the polling sites, actions which could potentially make union members feel intimidated.

“This constitutes nothing less than a concerted scheme to violate the rights of Harrah’s employees which clearly interferes with these employees’ rights to cast a secret ballot for the candidates of their choice, without fear of reprisals, recriminations, job loss, or other adverse employment actions. This illegal, improper and heavy-handed intervention into the fundamental voting rights of Harrah’s employees should be immediately investigated by the Department of Justice,” concluded Mitchell.

UPDATE: The Department of Justice declined to comment on the matte. And David O’Mara, legal counsel for the Nevada GOP Victory Committee, has sent a letter to Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller requesting an investigation of the situation.

Dinghy Harry strikes again.

I do hope this evil doofus loses tonight.

If not, may the upcoming investigation force him to resign his seat.

yeah. Good luck with that.

Good for Angle for going after this, but it’s not like the DOJ is going to do anything other than tell Harry Reid how awesome he is.

Luntz has called this race for Reid.

I am furious, as the voting in Nevada has not yet ended and Luntz shouldn’t do that until polls in Nevada close.

It looks to me as though massive election fraud has occurred in Nevada, all perpetrated by the Democrats.

Harrahs is up to its collective corporate eyeballs in illegal election activities, and SEIU controlled the voting machines, which ought to scare the wits out of any rational human being!

I’m hoping Angle pulls a win out of this mess, but Democrats ought to get their necks rung for their illegal activities during this election period.

Yes, I am certain the DOJ will help, who they consider enemies with their election issues.

The criminal enterprise party controls the euphemistically called department of justice. Does anyone expect that org run by a professional criminal, Eric Holder, to serve any sort of actual Justice? America needs REAL change

What is this, compulsory citizenship?

People who don't want to vote shouldn't have to vote. Usually, they have good reason to not want to vote.

I trash Las Vegas every chance I get, more so if Reid wins. It’s a source of union power, and conservatives should not patronize it. Bedbugs are running wild, too :)

And Luntz is part of the election fraud if he called the Nevada election before the polls closed.

Of course, nothing will be done about it.

Angle has been up in the last three polls, so... were all the polls wrong? What is the probability of that?

Somehow, this doesn’t surprise me. The corporation has been crying poverty to its employees several years now and spending in excess of $2M on lobbying and political contributions and if you guessed they gave more to the Rat party you’d be right. GO Green and Celibrate diversity. Much better company when it listed on the stock exchange.

I’ve been frequenting Harrahs properties for over 10 years now.
I’ve alway been happy with them and their free or almost-free hotel rooms.

Not anymore.
Tommorrow i will send a note telling them to screw and stop sending me their Total Rewards mailers.

First item for the agenda in January: congressional hearings on voter fraud and what DOJ is doing about it.
