Students may face felonies over illegal voter vouching
MN Daily ^ | 11-8-10 | Evelina Smirnitskaya

Posted on 11/08/2010 4:25:59 PM PST by WOBBLY BOB

Members of Students Organizing for America, a group of students aligned with the Democratic Party, may face a criminal investigation and possible felony charges after confrontations with an election judge over voter vouching during Tuesday’s election. Ginny Gelms, the interim elections director in Minneapolis, said she will submit a report to the Hennepin County attorney’s office and the Minnesota Secretary of State‘s office today. The offices will investigate a possible incident of improper vouching. Gelms said she was told by the University Lutheran Church precinct’s chair election judge there were two incidents of individuals trying to vouch for people they did not personally know. Vouching is a way to prove residence for on-site registration on Election Day. If someone doesn’t have a proper form of ID or a bill with their current name and address on it, a voter registered in the same precinct may sign an oath that they personally know that the individual is a resident of the precinct.

Only in MN...can you "vouch" for people with no ID.

Is it any wonder why we got Weird Al Senator or why Dims always fight against voter ID here in MN?

I think that's the case in WI as well.

For now, anyway. I am hopeful for some major changes to voting law once Governor Walker is sworn in

The non-taxpaying, Girls Gone Wild crowd is destroying our country with their childish and sophomoric antics. It would be nice to see some of them finishing their schooling at the Iron Bar University. Voting is not supposed to be a joke. There are a lot of us out here who take it seriously.

You think that is bad? In Oregon where they have only mail in ballots, the official can “correct” a ballot or even throw it out and fill out a new one based on how THEY think you meant vote.

I have argued for the last ten years that an investigation of the voting pattern of University of Arizona students should be conducted. A sample of, say, 400 students should be taken to determine if they vote in Arizona, and if they also vote in their home county; or if they are an out-of-state student, whether they vote in two states at once. My own feeling, based on anecdotal evidence is that more than 10% of students are involved in double voting. In case that seems picayune, imagine 80,000 students in the system. Multiply that by all the states and there is a real problem. States should pass laws that state a student found voting in two jurisdictions will lose the right to vote in that state. That should stop some of the funny business perpetrated (especially in Social Science departments).

Yup. No states are more corrupt than Washington, Oregon Nevada and Oregon. All four states should be minutely examined for vote fraud, and possibly forced to hold a special election. No more vote by mail! No ballots given without ID! No more manipulated computer ballot counts!

It is the case in WI. All you need is a utility bill and someone to say s/he knows you. Once, in line waiting to vote, I watched a phony prospective voter go down the line asking people to vouch for him. The fourth person said yes. It is very disheartening.

Vote fraud is a de facto coup d’état. It’s treason against the citizenry.

Violators should be tried and if found guilty, put to death. Persons whom turn in someone who are found guilty should be given monetary bounties.

it wouldn’t take long to gringo it to a halt.

I feel this way because once the citizenry discover that the ballot box does not work they will turn to violence and assassination. It’s a story as old as man.

HA!

I thought immediately of Mel Brook's film: Blazing Saddles -

Hedly Lamarr was recruiting villains to destroy (do a ‘Number 6’) on Rockridge.

Hedly: “Qualifications?”

Prospective Villain: “Rape, arson burglary and rape.”

Hedly: “You said rape twice?!!”

Prospective Villain: “I like rape!”

Hedly: “Kinky!”

That is the case in WI. I think it’s stupid. Anybody can vote here.

Somebody else today proposed that we seize this opportunity to initiate photo ID and purge the voter rolls. Everybody has to re-register before the next election. Other states even double check signature, but I don’t know how they arrange that. They do NOTHING in WI, and the people running the elctions actually are in jeopardy of jail and a fine if they challenge a voter and they turn out to be wrong.

When a person is voting, you have a split second to identify and report somebody trying to vote illegally. What is the chance that you may make a mistake, thus exposing yourself to a fine and/or jail? It’s safer to look the other way.

Excellent point, but with 95% of college kids voting for the pinko-commies, don’t expect too much.

All voter fraud must be investigated and prosecuted for RAT voter fraud to be stopped.

This must be a priority for the Tea Party/Conservatives starting right now through 2012 and beyond. Nevada’s fraud last week must be investigated as well as all the other states where suspicious activity is quite apparent.

Wrong. The proper punishment for knowing, intentional election fraud is summary execution. There really is no greater betrayal of your countrymen than tampering with the vote.

investigation of the voting pattern

Vote fraud would be VERY easy to fix. Make voting records public and provide "finders fees" for vote fraud. The finders fee could be a portion of a fine that is imposed.

That would be T-paw, the best governor I’ve ever had the pleasure of voting for. Don’t forget, he’s battled and beaten the DFL controlled state legislature almost single-handedly, I can think of no one who could have done better, and I’ve been voting Republican since 1978, first in Wisconsin and now here in Minnesota for the past 20-odd years.

There was some serious fraud going on here. From the article: Gelms said the hectic atmosphere at the polling place could have contributed to the incidents. Of the almost 800 individuals who voted at the precinct, more than 500 were on-site registrations, she said.

Over 60% of the votes were from same day registrations! This was an orchestrated attempt to overload the system and they caught 2 of the criminals behind it.

If the U.S. Housee of Representatives passes a law that punishes students with the loss of student loans for double voting, the practice would be greatly reduced, and likely end.

Do you think that it might have helped if he had manned up and attacked the SoS and the dim machine for stealing an American election? He could have been on all of the network shows as governor... with the loudest voice in the State... and he could have personally filed lawsuits to block the severe illegal activities that are documented to have taken place. None of this happened... none of it.

You *do* realize all that went through the Minnesota Supreme Court, don’t you? So, no, I don’t think anything more could have been done. He could not have changed the outcome. The fight, however unfair, was lost, it’s time to fight the next fight. Just my opinion, no one’s Superman, and I really like how he’s handled the Dem majority, fighting them to a standstill over the last few years. C’mon, you gotta give the guy a *little* credit for that.

I remember Florida and the Supremes... I have no respect for any of our government branches... none of them. They must earn it back... and they are not trying to earn anything but power and control. If you do not fight... you have absolutely no chance on winning anything.

So, you think Pawlenty could have changed the outcome of the Coleman-Franken recount? I just don’t see it. Like it or not, the courts have the final say. But good luck, anyways.

Maybe not... but he could have made it a National story for a week or two and that would have awakened the drugged American electorate, as to how our elections have become no more valid than those of Cuba’s. Your state sponsors an illegal Senator who stole his election and the proof is absolute... proud?

It *was* a national story for more than a week or two and did not end well. I’m confident we’ll fix that when Franken faces re-election. I’m not proud we elected Jesse Ventura governor, either, but that got fixed one election cycle later, too. But I’m proud of the way Ventura’s replacement Pawlenty has handled his term, perhaps it wasn’t a natinal story so you’re not aware of how in a state ruled by the DFL with both houses dominated by liberals he delivered them a beat-down. The guy gets things done. You don’t want to admit his accomplishments, fine. You want to be bitter about the last election cycle, fine. I still say good luck to you, and we’re about all talked out here. Peace out.

Nah... I will take your word for his good deeds... I was just crushed when such an a$$hole was allowed to steal an election without any intervention. As you say... going forward... maybe you can deal with that deranged idiot in the next election.
