Miller campaign sues for access to election registers
KTUU ^ | 11/12/2010 | Christine Kim

Posted on 11/13/2010 7:59:51 AM PST by SeattleBruce

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller filed a complaint Friday afternoon, demanding access to state voter rolls after alleged instances of voter fraud.

Court documents say the Miller campaign has asked for access to election registers from about 30 precincts across the state, which show voter signatures.

At a press conference, a Miller advisor claimed that one district showed a 238-ballot discrepancy in write-in votes, and wanted to know where those votes went.

Amen to what both of you said. Murkowski is talking like it’s a done deal. Maybe she should take our prayers into acct before she counts her chickens.

He does it all the time. But people have to be willing. God is like a perfect gentleman that way. He goes where He’s invited. That’s the way He is. His nature.

“Murkowski is talking like it’s a done deal.”

That’s her game. And the RAT media is front and center behind her, hoping to deal a dual blow to the Tea Parties and Palin.

Good thing they’re objective, hmmmm?

You’re right on the MSM. They are setting us up to ignore fraud, and it’s good to see Miller’s not buying it, bless him. McConnell and Cornyn better hope Miller prevails; some of us haven’t forgotten Cornyn’s knee jerk support for Lisa’s soreloser shenanigans, and I for one hold it against him Big Time.

There is no way our current system of voting will eliminate fraud. The fix is in and if Miller wins it will be a miracle. My faith in most of all Government is gone from local to State and especially the Fed. We the People have lost our Government a long time ago and maybe 2012 will be a start to regain.

This recount is the first bipartisan one I have ever seen—both Dem and GOP leaders are cheating together in order to defeat the Tea Party.

The Tea Party should remember this when the next bunch of Republican primaries come around.

My feelings exactly! God's justice is often so slow in coming.

Perhaps we are on earth to learn patience.

But...This week I lost my bill folder that had my driver's license and credit card. ( We had been unpacking from a vacation). I couldn't find it even after searching everywhere in the house. I then prayed for help. Two minutes later I found it buried in my underwear drawer ( of all places!).

So...It was a small witness to me that God is, indeed, in charge.

As much as I hope Joe wins, if what I had heard is true, he won’t.

I thought I had heard that there was a huge push to get all of the dems, who would have otherwise voted for the dem candidate who didn’t stand a chance, to write-in for Murky instead. Their thinking was that it’s better to have her than Miller.

It’s pretty dirty, if this is the case, but not fraud. It also suggests with whom Murky is going to caucus.

At least the spot light is being put on the massive corruption up here. Whether it will do any good is another story?

We were originally from the Burgh and I thought I had seen the most corruption that ever could exist in Western Pa; until we moved to Ak 20 years back. Less people, easier to play up here.

You watch, soon as Murkowski is declared the winner, they will address all these election issues, the courts re-interpretation of state statutes, and then rule that Ak go back to the way votes were counted over the last 50 years, not the method being used in this election.

Too bad the Indians believed Lisa's promises of massive funds coming their way. The way our Nation is going, the Indians will be back to eating porcupines as their main meal, the fed money will disappear overnight when it all comes down.

I guess your point is correct that God isn’t going to hinder men from being unrighteous and doing unrighteous things. But He is a help to those who seek Him. And He will reward the righteous who seek Him. People who appreciate their God-given freedoms must begin in prayer to seek His help.

You heard right.

Schfield, a former (D) Gov was on the tube saying ‘his’ candidate could not win, so vote for Lisa - seems Joe was too “extreme”

Most Unions - who push the (D) viewpoint - also came out for Lisa.

40 so-called (R) party ‘leaders’ attacked Joe

Add in in Native Corps (some areas had 100% write in for Lisa)

When Big Money talks - people in Alaska dance.

At least now we know who ownes who - eh?

A perfect representative for the people of Alaska should be a fighter, one that won’t quit because its too cold, because he is low on ammunition or food. Who keeps going until the battle is won.

This is a battle, because Lisa has power and support from all those that have already been stung by the effects of this election, they want revenge.

The worst thing to happen is for Joe to quit, in Alaska ALL the votes count because yes we do have a low population. But we have a LOT of military votes.

There are those that don't much think many votes went out to the military....after Nov 2nd I have to disagree with them. 2010 is as important as 2008 so yes could be 13,766 military absentees went out. And if most of those went out I suspect they'll come in with a vote for Miller. Keep on fighin' MILLER!!!

I just hope the Ruling Class is getting the message: we are sick and tired of business as usual/the Old Boys club, and we want a major shake up. There are hopeful signs on the Boehner and McConnell front. I hope Cornyn reads the writing on the wall, and takes a sharp right turn. Otherwise, he might find himself with a big Tea Party target painted right in the middle of his back.

If that happens, then AK is indeed sicker than we though - caught up in the federal largess of the past 50 years.

But first things first - you and I watch - Joe Miller can still win.

Nice, huh? Any doubt what we’re dealing with in large swaths of the GOP? Has the unceasing lament about the RINOs on this board fallen on deaf ears? Did we think this was going to be easy fighting back against the professional politicians and progressive liars from both parties?

Her first end game - claim victory before the military votes are counted. If Miller’s ahead with uncontested votes, then murk’s case goes down both in the court of public opinion, and perhaps in the courts themselves.

Do you think any conservative of stature will challenge Cornyn in the March 2014 primary? For some odd reason, Republicans in TX keep renominating him, and then the regular voters reelect him.

I can’t say because I just don’t know that much about TX politics. I’m in GA, where I am frustrated to the point of tears that Chambliss and Isakson keep getting reelected. Granted, they have both taken turns to the right. But make no mistake: they are RINOs, and will return to their old ways if given half a chance. Hopefully we can keep the heat on, and keep them toeing the line.

As for Cornyn, he has two years to prove himself. If he continues to tick off the Tea Partiers, we can only hope a strong challenger arises. It’s amazing how much good it does these career pols, to have to fight for their political lives every now and then.
