Fake signatures may mean Obama didn't actually qualify in Indiana
The South Bend Tribune ^ | 10/13/11 | Erin Blasko

SOUTH BEND - Minus suspected fakes, then Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama likely fell short of the number of signatures needed to appear on the 2008 Indiana primary ballot, and it's possible his opponent, Hillary Clinton, did as well, according to information obtained by The Tribune as part of an investigation into suspected ballot petition fraud.

Trent Deckard, Democratic co-director of the state Election Division, in an e-mail Thursday told The Tribune Obama's 2008 petition for primary ballot placement in the state contained just 534 certified signatures in the 2nd Congressional District. Clinton's petition contained 704 certified signatures, he said.

Presidential candidates must collect at least 500 signatures in each of the state's nine congressional districts to appear on the statewide primary ballot in Indiana.

As reported Sunday, The Tribune, in conjunction with Howey Politics Indiana, has uncovered scores of fake signatures on both the Obama and Clinton petitions in the 2nd Congressional District and specifically St. Joseph County. ~ snip ~

Responding to the ballot question, state Republican Party Chair Eric Holcomb said in a statement Thursday: "I've consistently said Barack Obama earned his narrow victory in Indiana. If these new allegations are true, that's no longer the case. He wouldn't have visited the state 48 times and aired countless commercials because he wouldn't have even been on the primary ballot."

Holcomb, who has called on the Department of Justice to investigate the Clinton and Obama petitions, also responded to a report that the suspected fake Obama petition pages passed through the county voter registration office on days when the Republican member of the office was out.

"The evidence currently suggests this was clearly not a clerical error or simple oversight," Holcomb said. "Multiple crimes have been committed in a brazen violation of the public trust against the people of Indiana and our electoral process."

Fake BC means Obama likely didn’t qualify in all 57 states.

Fake voters in the next election will just be a continuation of the past. All votes this time around must be shown to be legal......one way or another.

IS THIS the spark that finally launches investigations in all of the States regarding election fraud in 2008 that allowed Obama to “qualify” on the state ballots?

As I was saying *ahem* Indiana slips safely back into the GOP column this time around. In fact, when it’s called early — just after North Carolina is announced to have flipped back to the GOP as well — for Mittens or Cain, look for the first signs of worry on the faces of the MSM, in acknowledgement their demigod has been not just beaten, but annihilated.

Intriguingly, Operation Chaos saw its greatest success in the Indiana primary, giving Madame Cankles a narrow win over Bobo strictly courtesy of rural GOP counties.

Yes Operation Chaos was quite active in Indiana. I worked the polls at a very Republican precinct and we had a lot of voters whom I know personally as Republicans voting democrat. Many were openly laughing about “operation chaos” when they declared. The democrat workers were not amused.

The only reason that Indiana went for 0bama is Lake County; unlike most of the state, Lake is on Central time. They report last. The Lake Co democrat thug in chief openly boasted about “being able to deliver the votes they need.”

This probably doesn’t change the electoral vote so nothing will happen.

Will the people of Indiana remember this and get even on November 6, 2012?

Lake yes; and Marion voted 105% in certain precincts. Perfect Storm, and it won’t happen again in another 30 years. Enjoyed your story!

Bigger question. Why are they admitting or even aDdressing this now? Preemptive strike at the fraud being made known?

No. The Dems have been doing this for decades up here in MN. You don't think we actually voted FOR Mondale/Ferraro do you?

This is going nowhere.

I suspect the RATS have hundreds of people working a lot of hours to plan the voter fraud for 2012.

Going nowhere because Holder will not allow it. Just like he didn’t allow prosecution of the New Black Panthers.

How did an Indonesian school kid living with his grandmother in Hawaii end up with a social security card issued in Connecticut?

Indiana’s SOS at the time, Todd Rokita, did such a good job ensuring honest elections and legal candidates, that we made him a congressman.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE should demand severe penalties with no statute of limitations for voter fraud of any kind.

If THE AMERICAN PEOPLE don't care, they deserve whatever they get.

People get--and deserve--the kind of government they demand.
