The Myth of Voter Fraud [BARF Alert]
The New York Times ^ | October 9, 2011 | The New York Times

Posted on 10/10/2011 11:48:03 AM PDT by feralcat

It has been a record year for new legislation designed to make it harder for Democrats to vote — 19 laws and two executive actions in 14 states dominated by Republicans, according to a new study by the Brennan Center for Justice. As a result, more than five million eligible voters will have a harder time participating in the 2012 election.

Of course the Republicans passing these laws never acknowledge their real purpose, which is to turn away from the polls people who are more likely to vote Democratic, particularly the young, the poor, the elderly and minorities. They insist that laws requiring government identification cards to vote are only to protect the sanctity of the ballot from unscrupulous voters. Cutting back on early voting, which has been popular among working people who often cannot afford to take off from their jobs on Election Day, will save money, they claim.

True story. I was poll watching in the last election, as we usually do. One daughter is registered as a Democrat, the other is registered as a Republican. The law here is that absentee ballots have to be in about 5 days before election day to enable the people who deliver the registered voting books to also deliver the absentee ballots.

The Democrat registered daughter's ballot arrived on time even though she posted it two weeks later and from a more distant location than the daughter registered as a Republican. I have more than mere suspicion to think it was not just a coincidence.

This idiotic editorial insists there is no evidence of voter fraud.

Well, yeah, because no one is paying attention to it. Then, when Voter ID is passed and the fraud goes away, the same people say "See, I told you so."

To me, this is akin to saying "There are no speeders on the interstate." and parking a cop very visibly on the road at 1/4 mile intervals to prove the point.

Just the fact that Dems are universally against Voter ID, screams to me that there is a fraud issue. If there are no problems, then I'd think people would be fairly evenly split.

The following is a description of a common scam. I know of it because it happened to my sis-inlaw. When she was caught up in it she was helped by an election day trouble shooter from the local republican party who also explained how the scam works and told us that it is very common.

My sis-in-law has been a registered republican voter for many years but has almost never voted. In the 2004 Presidential election I convinced her to vote. When she went to the polling place they refused to let her cast a vote because a mail in absentee ballot had already been submitted in her name. With the help of the local republican party they eventually allowed her to cast a provisional ballot. It probably ended up in the trash bin.

Here is what we were told about the scam: Democrats in local election offices scan voter lists for registered voters who rarely vote. They feed this information to others who submit bogus mail in absentee ballots in those names. They send them in early because the first ballot submitted is assumed to be the legitimate ballot. Any subsequent ballots are treated as errors or possible fraudulent ballots. Conflicts or duplicates are supposedly resolved after the election, but usually the same people who perpetrate the scam are the people assigned to clear up ballot issues.

In our case all the local officials were democrats and every person from the election office we spoke with was a democrat. They were rude, abusive and irritated that we persisted in demanding my sis-in-law be allowed to vote. They threatened to have her arrested if she did not leave the polling place. That is when we called the republican party for assistance.

I just emailed the Times telling them the poor and elderly should already have photo ID. If not, that could be why we have high fraud in Medicaid and Medicare.

They whine and whine and whine, even after Crawford v. Marion County Election Board settled the issue.
