Skip to comments.Soros and liberal groups seeking top election posts in battleground state
Posted on 06/24/2011 10:46:42 AM PDT by CharlyFord
A small tax-exempt political group with ties to wealthy liberals like billionaire financier George Soros has quietly helped elect 11 reform-minded progressive Democrats as secretaries of state to oversee the election process in battleground states and keep Republican political operatives from deciding who can vote and how those votes are counted.
Known as the Secretary of State Project (SOSP), the organization was formed by liberal activists in 2006 to put Democrats in charge of state election offices, where key decisions often are made in close races on which ballots are counted and which are not.
The groups website said it wants to stop Republicans from manipulating election results.

The libs are going for a full court press for the 2012 election. They know winning that one will put them in the drivers seat for generations.
Why is this allowed??
Because the Rhinos have no backbone.
Five Rhinos in the Maine state senate voted against a bill requiring a voter to show a picture i.d. at the polling station. The bill was defeated (it had passed the state House and the governor said he would sign it).
I would say that winning that one will ensure the complete destruction of this Nation within this generation.
Well, it’s more than just the RINOs. Some of the blame should be shared by such an ignorant populace: A lot of Americans know more about American Idol than they do about who is running for office, and a surprising number of them don’t even think SOS is an “important” office. Just easier to vote for a name they’ve seen somewhere. I do fear for our country.
This is WAR folks.
While most of the rest of us let out a big yawn to the "down ballot" races for state offices, the libs are organized to capture them - and that could have disastrous consequences. Of course when this organization says "with integrity" they mean those that will not strictly enforce election laws.
Correct. Cheating won't help their effort if it isn't close. The blame for the failure of our culture rest squarely on the shoulders of the ignorant voters.
ACORN in drag?
Well, look on the bright side,
Some of those states have Republican governors with vast election machines. And the list does not inlude Florida or Virginia.
This general election will be this year - November 2011. I'm sure the Soros backed SOS projection will not be supporting him.
It sure is gonna be.
JFK - when non-violent revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable.
Lefties, there are the 5 boxes of liberty.
You’ve destroyed or closed 3 of them, you’re working on the 4th. We WILL reach for the 5th.
Well, he didn’t have to try this in WI Our left wing Government Accountibility Board and current left wing Secretary of State are already in his pocket. I certainly hope that our new Republican governor replaces some people ooon the GAB and that we can change the SOS at the next election.
Because good people do nothing. The left are always active in their pursuits of doing evil.

They need to be stopped.
Perdue vetoed the NC bill.

Soros taking actions to control elections - Current issue Ping
Why hasn’t the Republican Party election committee prepared a list of grievances in addition to repealing ObamaCare to be remedied as soon as they gain control, eg., a balanced budget amendment, rescinding Obama’s executive orders and regulations made under his administration, curbing tax funding for political organizations, lifting tax exemptions for 501(c)(3) organizations that violate exempt organization requirements, eliminating the 527’s unlimited political contributions and cracking down on billionaires and other corrupt organizations that attempt to corner the states’ attorney generals (SOSP) in order to control elections?
Why does the DOJ of either party or Congress allow billionaire control global freaks like George “Blofeld” Soros to interfere with and obstruct our freedom, our economy, our way of life? We need these questions answered immediately.
No problem here in FL. Gov. Scott appointed Sec. of State Browning.....http://www.dos.state.fl.us/oss/secretary-bio.cfm
I hope you posted their names on your Maine FreeRepublic Board at:
Maine Freepers need to spread the word about those in the Maine Legislature who voted against legislation that would help stop voter fraud!
It’s not about elections so much as it’s about the Electoral College.
Yes I will. It will get done in the next few days.
Unfortunately, one of the Senators represents my district.
He is a friend who has helped a good number of kids in our Boy Scout troop including my own.
But last year, the 'Rats probably lost some of their SOS positions because of the generational national trend toward the GOP. So why this article just now?

People have complicated, active lives. They forget the details sometimes. That's one of our jobs. Keep the players informed. Keep the game plan active. That's what Free Republic does.
Last year Ruth Johnson actually used the Soros connection to the democrat candidate as a weapon and won.
I think this ad was pretty effective at showing the fraud and the soros connection.
Why is Soros’ Secretary of State Project surfacing now?
B/c vote-crazed Obama desperately needs illegals votes.
He has a huge underground budget to register illegals using multiple identities.
And if anyone complains, Secy’s of State handle voter irregularities and can give the scam a pass.
Yes, indeed, we did reclaim some of those SoS positions with the 2010 elections (and in some cases, the Governors appoint them, so in those states that flipped party control, we gained those as well). We currently have 29 where there is a “defined” office.
As of now we have the following (June 2011):
AK (the Lt Governor holds the responsibilities)
AR (captured for the first time in 2010 since Reconstruction)
CO (captured from the Dems in 2010)
FL (app’t by Governor)
IA (captured from the Dems in 2010)
KS (captured from the Dems in 2010)
ME (elected by legislature, captured by GOP in 2010)
NJ (the Lt Governor holds this job)
NM (elected - captured in 2010 for first time since 1928)
OH (elected, captured from Sorosbot in 2010)
PA (app’t by Governor)
TN (elected by legislature)
TX (app’t by Governor)
VA (app’t by Governor)
The Dems have:
KY (election up this year, the former GOP occupant resigned, now held by Dem appointee)
MD (app’t by Governor)
MN (elected - a key Sorosbot here)
MO (elected - Sorosbot ?)
MT (elected - another Sorosbot ?)
NV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
NH (elected by legislature, one Dem has held this office since 1976, but he is respected by both parties)
NY (app’t by Governor)
NC (elected - Sorosbot ?)
WV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
WI (elected, Doug LaFollette - probably the most odious rodent SoS in the country currently, narrowly survived reelection in 2010)
Nice job; well done!!
Great research! Knowledge of this Soros funded plan gives ammo to opponents of the elected SOS’s. Don’t know how it would effect those who are appointed but I guess if the governor has to answer yes or no to knowledge of Soros influence, that may make the governor think twice about certain potential appointments.
They have Hawaii LT Governor too.
Interesting that both Alaska and Hawaii gave SOS responsibilities to the Lieutenant Governor.
For example, Illinois is one of only two states (wikipedia states the other is Michigan) that puts the SOS office in charge of motor vehicles, effectly making Secretary of State Jesse White the transportation secretary as well (he's also the State Librarian, custodian of the Illinois State Capitol, and maintains the Illinois State Capitol Police force. I doubt this is common for SOS’s in other states. I would probably rank our SOS second only to the Governor in power, although under the state constitution the Attorney General is next in line after the Governor and (worthless) Lt. Governor's office. Some of the SOS’s may be elected statewide officials in their own right, but still figureheads in terms of actual power.
The only good thing for us that the current RAT Secretary of State has gone senile and is so low-key he's been invisible lately.

PASS THE WORD Conservatives, the TTP, Republicans, etc, should blanket the area with info WRT Soros' takeover of their state's Secy of State office.....and all the reasons why Soros is doing this. That oughta put a crimp in Ohaha/Soros' plans. Decent citizens will be appalled at Soros' nefarious Secretary of State Project.
As one FReeper posted: The Tea Party should mobilize and publicize the face, address, and CV of the Sec of State. TTP should show up at their office to remind them that TTP knows theey are on the take and that TTP is watching.
I have been advising FReepers to launch voter fraud initiatives in their states.
ROOT OUT VOTER FRAUD Send letters out to everyone on the voter rolls demanding proof of citizenship, residence etc---those who do not reply are stricken from the rolls.
Ideally this should be done by the Secy of State but Soros guys won't lift a finger.
Yet, with enough publicity about voter fraud---even a crooked Secy of State has to do the right thing.
Yup. Combine the SOS project with the non elected judge panel & buying up a bunch of NPR reporters to be deployed doing local stories & you’ve got a plunder.
