Former F.E.C. official on Reid strong-arming: ‘I’ve never seen anything so blatant’
Washington Examiner ^ | 11/2/10 | J.P. Friere

Posted on 11/02/2010 4:30:36 PM PDT by Nachum

A former official with the Federal Election Commission, Hans von Spakovsky, blasted the Reid campaign, saying they are clearly engaging in coercion and illegal coordination under federal campaign finance rules. “I’ve never seen anything this blatant,” he told The Examiner. “Most corporations stay far away from this because they know they can get in big trouble if they tell their employees to go out and vote for a particular candidate. That’s a big no-no.” “There are two issues. The first is illegal coordination. The Reid campaign is specifically asking a corporation with the help of a union to get voters

Let’s hope this results in a major lawsuit against him.

Not to worry. Try a little music :

AMERICAN LIE

A long long time ago...
I can still remember
How the Bullshit used to make me smile.
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they'd be happy for a while

But then November made me shiver
With every whopper I'd deliver,
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn't take one more step.

I can't remember if I cried
When I read about the turning tide,
But something touched me deep inside
The day the gravy died.

So, Bye bye miss american lie,
Took the people to the budget
But the budget was dry.
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin' "this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die."

Looks like Reid’s gonna win according to FoxNews — way ahead according to “early voting” exit polls and such...

Yeah, I just can’t help but wonder how many of those voted were manufactured by those faulty voting machines that were “serviced” by the SEIU....

CNN is reporting that the Reid campaign is very happy with the early voting totals.

Reid will win, the media will call it a huge defeat for the tea party and Republicans, and a newly-emboldened Reid will push an unprecedented lame duck agenda, including card check, amnesty, dream act, judges and more.

I’ve been going to Las Vegas for 25 years. If Reid wins, I’m done. I’m not giving my money to the SEIU.

No doubt all the fraud and cheating coming from Reid’s SEIU goons is why Reid put out the statement that he was getting lots of ‘republican’ votes. Probably the votes that have been changed for him at the voting machines.

THIS IS A MASSIVE FRAUD GOING ON IN NEV.! All involved should be prosecuted and jailed.

-"Reid will win.... will push an unprecedented lame duck agenda"

Actually, 'we' win either way this goes.

If Reid wins and the Senate stays in RAT control (by a hair), then this sets us up nicely for a stupendous contrast for 2012. If REID remains - he will continue to be the 'poster boy' for everything bad about RAT control of the Senate, something nicely to remind Americans thru 2012.

“Let’s hope this results in a major lawsuit against him.”

Well lets see.

The democrats specifically implanted a democrat secretary of state that thinks that buying votes is OK. So no hope there.

The Justice department is run by Obama and his cronies that dismissed the black panther case. So no hope there.

According the liberal judges that have taken over our court system then no one else will have standing to sue.

So I guess Fraud and lawlessness in America is not punishable in America if you are a democrat.

A-freakin'-men. You have no idea how many times that same sentiment has crossed my mind. Nobody needs the deflationary defeatist attitude during the heat of battle.

WTF is wrong with Nevada? Is it DNA damage from all the nuke testing in that area?

Another example of Democrats being above the laws that apply to everyone else.

Such an entitled group! (/sarcasm).

I hope that when the carnage of tonight’s elections settles that someone will file charges against Harry and his minions that approached the unions and casinos and make an example out of all of them.

All that matters is that he wins. Then the FEC can do whatever they do - fine him - and so what. His illegal actions got him in power. We don’t have incentive for the Democrats to obey the election laws so they don’t.
