Ind. Dem quits in fake-signature flap
Politico ^ | 10/18/11 | MACKENZIE WEINGER

Posted on 10/18/2011 8:54:00 AM PDT by ColdOne

An Indiana Democratic county chairman accused of submitting petitions with hundreds of faked signatures for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary resigned Monday, according to reports.

St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chair Butch Morgan stepped down from his position in light of the scandal, but insisted he had “done nothing wrong,” the South Bend Tribune reported late Monday night. Morgan also resigned as Democratic chair for Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District.

He faces allegations he submitted hundreds of forged signatures - including that of a former governor - on petitions to get Clinton and Obama on the 2008 Indiana primary ballot.

“I regret having to resign and hope no one will misinterpret the reasons for my resignation,” Morgan said in a written statement. “I have done nothing wrong and I look forward to an investigation that will exonerate me of any wrongdoing.”

This type of fraud isn’t punished nearly harshly enough in this country. It’s a direct attack on the entire body politic and perpetrators should be eligible for Capital Punishment by hanging.

Does this mean Great Leader’s name will be removed from the Indiana ballot? Also, were these fake signatures for the dem. primaries or the general election?

But... but... but... he even said he insisted he had “done nothing wrong...” That's the end of the discussion as far as the media see it.

OH! He said he didn't do anything wrong, and he's not in that position anymore, so all is well.

If it's not obvious: /sarc

Guilty!

It annoys me that the Left continually answers charges of crimal activity not with "I did not do that", which may be demonstrated to be a false statement, but rather they always say, "I didn't do anything wrong".

In their warped universe there is little crimal activity they can perpetrate that they think is "wrong", even if it's illegal as hell, so this is always their answer.

Stinking Democrat scum.

Sadly Indiana did go for Baraq in 08.

No chance of that in 012.

I will always believe that the democrats cheated their way to a win in Indiana in 2008.

Happened up there in Lake County.

Indiana has always been one of the 1st states to report on election night.

In 2008 it came in very late because of Lake County.

I look forward to an investigation, PERIOD!

Americans need to demand their lawmakers to make laws that really matter? Like SEVERE prison time for anything linked to voting fraud.

So let's 'occupy all lawmakers heads'.

Flap? Why is it that Democrats commit 'flaps', but for Republicans, its a Scandal? Nixon would never had to have resigned if it were called the Watergate Flap.

Thanks for the ping!

Think an Indiana Freeper ping is in order.

As always, if you wish to be removed from my ping list just let me know through FreepMail. If you asked before and was pinged here, please forgive this ping as I lost my updated list. Just request to be removed again. Thanks!

This was the buddy of the former IN Speaker of the House, Union McCrooked Face, up there in Southbend. Yes, Pat Bower is from that district and the most Powerful Democrat in Indiana. I wonder if he knew anything about it. It's not like the unions in Southbend have much influence or do anything politically to motivate the outcomes of elections. (Sarcasm)

Before anyone let's the “What's the harm? It wouldn't have affected the election.” crap, let it be known, It is a FELONY and proof of election fraud.

If something as simple as gaining 500 signatures supporting a candidates appearance on the ballot for each district is fraudulent, what other legalities have the taken liberties with?

Typical democrat MO. Do tons of crimes and when one individual gets caught have him quit. Dem positions are often like revolving doors. It's much harder to keep track of things with rotating personal. Most likely some other dem group or company will then hire the perp, actually seeing him as a hero.

Here in Indiana the leftists swore up and down we have no need for a voter ID law since voter fraud never happens in Indiana. Thankfully the bill passed and Daniels signed it anyway.

I reported that Rudy Clay registered EVERY Gary HS student when Dear Leader came in April 2008. What do you think happened with those registrations? Early voting absentee. Mr Rokita was not interested. That is 8K manipulated votes from People’s Republic of Lake Co

Also early voting in East Chicago, Whiting Hammond Gary Lake station was 73% Obot zombies

The biggest hole in law is as long as you have SSI # you can get absentee ballot. Last bastion of Lake Co creative voting patterns

At the time Rokit was Indiana Secy of state and now IN 4 rep

Rino is as Rino does. No balls to go after the busloads of 14 yos registering to vote and Commisioner Rudy Clay sheparding them through Dembot controlled Lake Co Govt Center.

Hey Rokita if you are lurking Why was this not addressed?

Fraud now, pay later, through a slow system while the fraudulently elected official
does NOT stand up and step aside. <--- 2012...

No ID voting is not the only the path for the RATs.
Early voting is. Vote often.

Indiana has a voter ID law. Unfortunately there was a loop hole in 08. Students at state universities could use their school picture ID. Out of state students voted without being challenged. Think it's been clogged up now.
