Skip to comments.Voter fraud is real: And voter ID laws are really needed; they are not racist

The state chairman of Indiana's Democratic Party resigned Monday as a probe of election fraud in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary widened.
State law requires a presidential candidate to gather 500 valid signatures in each county to qualify for the ballot. Barack Obama may not have met it. Investigators think 150 of the 534 signatures the Obama campaign turned in for St. Joseph County may have been forged.
Former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis, who is black, said vote fraud is rampant in African-American districts like his in Alabama.
"The most aggressive contemporary voter suppression in the African-American community is the wholesale manufacture of ballots at the polls and absentee, in parts of the Black Belt," Mr. Davis said. "Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too mentally impaired to function cancels out the votes of citizens who are exercising their rights."
"Concerns about voter identification laws affecting turnout are much ado about nothing," concluded researchers at the universities of Delaware and Nebraska after examining election data from 2000 through 2006.
This year there have been investigations, indictments or convictions for vote fraud in California, Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, North Carolina and Maryland. In all but one case, the alleged fraudsters were Democrats.
Fraud of the magnitude which swings elections typically combines absentee ballot fraud and voter registration fraud. At least 55 employees or associates of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now have been convicted of registration fraud in 11 states, says Matthew Vadum of the Capital Research Center, who's written a book about ACORN.
Of 1.3 million new registrations ACORN turned in in 2008, election officials rejected 400,000.

Voter fraud is real and we will see it in all it’s glory unless we give them a landslide
If voter fraud wasn’t real, Holder and his people wouldn’t be working so hard trying to keep the Republicans from stopping it.

You know what would be real nice...if we could resolve issues like this once in for all.
Instead, 10 years from now I am certain I will be reading a simular article.
I will get Newt on it right away.
Good enough for me.
Actually, this issue ticks me off like almost no other, because it points out the cowardice, stupidity, spinelessness of elected Republicans. Here in Michigan, the GOP has lost US Senate + Congressional seats, they've lost who knows how many other elections due to fraud.
Yet, they do nothing. They refuse to defend their OWN political interests. How pitiful can you get? It can't get more pitiful than refusing to defend yourself. See Dubya for a master of this kind of pusillanimity.
If a politician refuses to defend himself, he ain't gonna defend me. So, why is heck should I vote for such a spineless blob? It's insanity.
Gotta concentrate on those Secretary of state elections.
We elected a top notch election fraud fighter here in Michigan. In 04 as a county commissioner she raised the alarm over some 30,000 fraudulent voter registrations in her county. In 2010 she fought the fraud against herself and won the SOS race.
Vote fraud should be treated as the treasonous act it is, a direct attack on the foundations of this formerly great nation. It should be punished accordingly with life in prison or death.
That MIGHT curb some of it...
As most thinking people will admit, this clam is total nonsense and not worth even a conversation.
obama is counting on massive voter fraud along with the black racist vote to stay in office. Oh yeah, the republicans are very prone to snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Especially Philly, they’re all in on it down there.
In all but one case, the alleged fraudsters were Democrats.
And, BTW, come to think of it, how do Motor Voter Law registrants even GET registered to vote w/o SOME sort of ID?
Do they get registered just because they CLAIM to be here legally???????
What is the 50 different sets of criteria for registration????
For democrat voters, would an ID picture of their tombstone suffice?
See tag line below.
I don’t know about the other 47 states, but AL, GA, and FL all require a birth certificate and social security card along with proof of residency.
Using the race card as a means to silence non-minorities and prevent them from defending their rights against disenfranchisement by voter fraud is the height of racism.
No surprise that the overwhelming majority of proven voter fraud cases have been in Dim precincts. I wonder how much voter fraud took place in Florida during the 2000 presidential election?
The Minnesota senate race that put the comedian in the US senate?
In most states there are laws requiring everyone to have id just to be in the state.
Can you get welfare with out id? No
Can you get medicare with out id? No
Can you cash a check with out id? No
Can you open a bank account with out id? No
The list could go on and on..
No id, no vote. It’s not racist because EVERYONE has to have id.
If voter ID’s discriminate against the poor who can’t afford the ID’s then how do they identify thmeselves to the Department of Welfare Graft?
Amen, although killing them probably will not deter them from voting.
If Newt guarantees that he will repeal Obamacare and to once and for all handle voter fraud, I’ll vote for him all day long!
In Minnesota a bill with your address is all you need. or.. get this.. Someone that lives near you can “vouch” for you.
Oh ya, no chance of fraud there. /s
The Democratic Party strongly supports the Civil Rights of Necro-Americans!
My wife ordered a Christmas gift for one of the grandkids and used Walmart’s “ship to store” service to avoid paying shipping costs. When she went to pick up the gift, she needed the email that Walmart had sent, plus a picture ID. For a freaking Lego toy! But someone should be allowed to vote just by dropping in at the polls without any ID whatsoever?
Get used to it, Obama’s whole re-election strategy is to “scream racism” whenever he gets criticized. Simple, but effective.
It takes guts to stand up to that kind of intimidation, and not many politicians have it.
Normally they also require the CC you ordered the item with as well. You got off easy. ;)
There might be a pearl in it.
Allowing voter fraud has consequences...
Whistling past the graveyard!!
That's just Dims whistling up votes!!
"Bring out your DEAD!! We need votes!!"
Not to worry -- Holder will take care of the voter registration fraud problem. Everybody in the country will automatically be registered.
An article yesterday pointed out the ridiculous hypocrisy of these arguments by pointing out that most union elections require that you present your ID. If it’s good enough for the union, then it should be good enough for our states and nation.
make the voting machine work by reading your finger print...you give it the registrar when you register, then when you vote the voting machine reads your prints...it would only let one vote once no pictures no cards if you don’t register you don’t vote
If the intent was to really eliminate as much voter fraud as possible, this country would take a year or two and re-register every single voter, requiring proof of citizenship and approved voter ID, among other things.
That would be the best way to purge the voter roles of the dead and the otherwise ineligible.
And as far as re-registration goes, it’s not at all unreasonable. We have to renew our auto tags, our driver’s licenses, our insurance policies and other necessary things. And part of those renewals is to reestablish eligibility, or fitness to have those privileges and insurance coverages.
Voters should have to re-register ever five to ten years just to keep the voter roles cleaner.
Voter fraud is the cornerstone of the democrat party.
Hence the histrionics.
“We live in a sound-bite society and one in which propaganda is effective and ubiquitous.”
I see where their dishonesty can only be countered by being brutally honest or un-PC. I have no problem with that and I’ll make sure to engage in it as often as I possibly can.
Also, laws should be passed disallowing ballots to suddenly be found. If they were not counted in the first count they shouldn't be used in the recount. We all know the "found" ballots are fake. Laws that void a precincts votes when the votes total higher than the number of registered voters would be another good idea. I am sure there are many other ways to cheat but these would be a good start along with requiring Voter ID in all states.
“Use fingerprints”....riiiiggghhhttt! I can think of nothing more discriminatory against minorities than fingerprints.
Every one should have a voter ID card like a credit card and a national database of registered voters. System just
accurate as credit card purchases. You insert the card into machine and get one ballot to mark and drop in ballot box. Modern technology makes possible 100% accuracy. Outlaw absentee voting. Polls open for 72hours. Outlaw counting ballots until polls are closed to prevent news media from trying to influence vote before polls close. Outlaw exit polling. Make vote fraud impossible. Registration and issuance of voter ID card must be completed 30 days before election Democracy presupposes honest elections.
I'm from Wisconsin
and I ought to know
there's Dem-inspired vote fraud
wherever they go
You guys are pikers. Oregon has mail in ballots only, no chance of fraud here.
The Republicans that show any interest in curtailing fraud are able to hide behind Courts that tell them how discriminatory voter IDs are.
There are only two possible explainations, the republicans are too stupid to recognize the problem, or they are content to manage their minority position.
Personally I find it hard to believe that they could possibly be that stupid.
Look at the crap the black “teachers” pulled here in Atlanta
They had test changing parties!
There is something seriously wrong with the “black community”. This fraud ultimately hurts them as much as everyone else.
