No Vote Fraud? Tell it to Rangelís Opponent.
Commentary ^ | 7-3-12 | Jonathon S. Tobin

Posted on 07/03/2012 4:29:04 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

In the last year as Democrats have tried to oppose all efforts to ensure the integrity of the vote in the fall election, they have derided voter ID laws as not only racist in motivation but also unnecessary. Though the basic proposition that anyone who shows up at the polls ought to be able to prove they are who they say they are and are registered voters seems like common sense, liberals have claimed such measures are utterly superfluous because voter fraud is not a problem in the United States. And because there is no problem to be fixed, any effort that might stop those not qualified to vote from casting ballots is, they claim, rooted in prejudice and aimed at “suppressing” the minority vote. One would think that the long history of election fraud in this country which dates back to the colonial era and was a staple of machine politics in the 20th century would have caused Democrats to stop making such weak claims. But they are undaunted and have even gone so far as to assert that efforts to hold Attorney General Eric Holder accountable for his failures and stonewalling in the Fast and Furious scandal are evidence of the Republicans’ desire to get back at him for opposing voter ID laws.

But in case the Democrats needed a reminder about why voter integrity laws are necessary, they have just gotten one from a stalwart of the Congressional Black Caucus and a leading opponent of such measures. Charles Rangel’s “victory” in the Democratic primary in which he sought to ensure for himself a 22nd consecutive term in Congress from New York is being disputed by his opponent, State Senator Adriano Espaillat, who claims what took place last week was a “phantom election” in which...

Representatives of New York’s finest were to collect results from each polling place at 9pm but they were not thorough. Some never arrived ( to keep things honest?!)
Were all of the data for each poll site finally collected? Were all polls closed at 9pm and a record of the number of voters who voted up until 9pm submitted that night? And signed by all poll workers at a precinct?

Was interested in a comment on an earlier thread that in a couple of his opponents strong precincts no votes were recorded for the opponent....Looks like they over reached.

OTOH don't think any state has come close to the over 100% turn out after sixty ballot boxes were lost that happened in Indianapolis. The good news Indiana passed voter ID with full cooperation of the disenfranchised voters.

I know this has been on Fox; has the MSM picked it up at all?

It'd be true happiness if two Dems fighting over who cheated better actually made people admit that voter fraud is endemic epidemic.

Nothing new here!

Recall the “B1 Bob” Dornan vs Sanchez race too many years ago.

Bob actually won, the investigation clearly confirmed that vote fraud by Sanchez supporters was rampant.
But the republican “Leadership” decided to not make an issue out of it for fear of “Alienating hispanic voters”!

So, I guess they have decided that “Hispanic voters” are all OK with vote fraud, and that their sensitivities are more important than those of the rest of us.

My own view is simple, stop pandering to any voting block that is heavily comprised of people who may only vote by committing a felony!
When vote fraud is found, make “An example” of the perpetrators.

You know, enforce the law, without prejudice?

DAMN IT! Whats to understand!

The United States Constitution states “One U.S. Citizen gets ONE Vote!” There may be a clarification which the Civil War fixed! So, getta over it!

There is still Obama’s brother living in a hut and abject poverty in Africa after we have poured trillions into Africa and allowed millions to come here illegally, and they are liviving on promised welfare and killing Innocent Amemeicans, as the animals of Africa! This policy sucks!

Call it poetic justice. For years, B-1 Bob ignored the cries of anguish from his constituents who were being severely battered by illegal immigration.

The lovable old fart only woke up to illegal immigration when a Mexican took his job.

In IL the most fraudulent elections are always intra party. The Sandy Jackson election was probably the dirtiest in my 50 years in IL.
