Absentee vote fraud destroying Miami-Dade elections
The Miami Herald ^ | Sunday, 08.26.12 | PAUL CRESPO

Posted on 09/02/2012 9:40:30 AM PDT by justlittleoleme

Absentee vote fraud is undermining our elections

While campaigning at a senior citizen residence facility in Sweetwater during my recent race for state representative, several elderly voters mentioned that a person closely related to an important city official “handled” their absentee voting in that center. Some even said this person “voted for them.”

One angry voter pulled me aside discreetly to warn me that this politically connected person actually got the mailbox keys from the residents to access their ballots, and begged me to do something about it. Unfortunately, the person they identified was also openly working on behalf of my opponent.

(snip)

A dramatic increase in absentee voting in recent years means that absentee ballots are increasingly, and disproportionately, deciding our elections. But in many cases absentee voting patterns are so far out of sync with the rest of the county’s voting that it is obvious that something is seriously wrong.

(snip)

Absentee ballot fraud is undermining the integrity of our elections. My parents fled communist Cuba because their right to vote was eliminated. As an officer in the United States Marine Corps I defended our country and our political system. Our vote should be sacred.

We can no longer turn a blind eye to this electoral cancer. Absentee vote fraud must stop.

“Early voting” is also bad - it gives people the chance to vote multiple fraudulent identities over a period of several days ... all without cutting into siesta or midnight basketball.

Absentee voting should be reserved for those who can clearly prove they will be unable to be at the polls on election day.

I also agree that early voting is a bad idea.

I read somewhere that 47% of all votes in swing states in 08 were “early voting”

Democrats/Marxists/Progressives just HATE free and fair elections.

(They never seem to realize that they are undermining THEIR right to vote as well.)

In my opinion Michigan has the single best secretary of state in the country today.

There is no mention of party affiliation in the article...until the very end. Paul Crespo, the author, is a Republican.

Yet, from the outset, there is no question which party is responsible for absentee ballot fraud. It is the Democrats. They have brought the practice to a high art.

It is clear that the Democrat party is not interested in controlling vote fraud...because it is they who benefit from it!

Or, to put it another way, the Democrat party is squarely against free and fair democratic elections.

Because they cannot otherwise win...

“Democrats/Marxists/Progressives just HATE free and fair elections.”

It’s not who votes that counts,
it’s who counts the votes.

(Can’t remember who said that...)

Voter fraud is rampant in this country. Unfortunately, the DOJ doesn’t know it because they are too busy suing and harrassing Joe Arpaio.

Yes, throw out military votes from overseas, but let people vote 2 or 3 times if they are democratic. Perhaps we need to simply deduct a number of democratic votes from several states just to even things up...

I know in the movie Gangs of New York it was attributed to boss Tweed but I don’t know if he really said it.

And any time they lose, Dems screech about Repubs stealing elections. That party would be forced to appeal to real world constituents if it weren't for voter fraud.

Anything that gives Democrats an opportunity to cheat, is a bad idea. Democrats know they have a monopoly on fraud, and they take advantage of it. There are two ways to shut them down. Take away their opportunities, or learn to cheat better than they do.

I remember it was once attributed to Stalin, but this site refutes it:

So I don’t really know *who* actually said it.

“Perhaps we need to simply deduct a number of democratic votes from several states just to even things up...”

When places like Philly and Uniontown etc etc etc, have more registered lib-dem voters than residents, and vote at 115% of capacity, there’s something wrong.

McCain won this state 53% on the night but early voting gave it to big ears.

GA media did an investigation and found that from just two states a 100,000 votes were frauds, yes just two states, then add illegals, snowbirds who use their vacation address and lets not forget the many who voted early and often.

Every ballot question went right wing, including mariage but we’re to beleive people voted for big ears after they voted right wing on all the questions na dother candidates.

There were reports in 2000 that the Democrats had gone to nursing homes and “helped” residents vote—probably including many people with Alzheimer’s who had no idea what was going on. If Gore had won Florida, those votes might have been what put him over the top. Presumably they do that in all elections.

In Ohio, everyone gets an extra three days for early voting because a Democrat judge ordered it. The GOP wanted the military to have the extra time to get their ballots in, but the judge said everyone must have the extension.

The news report stated that Democrats said 95000 of their votes were cast in the last three days of early voting in ‘08...certainly more than could be verified to be valid.

Watch out, Ohio. They’ll be cranking out their ballot stuffers till Monday night before the Tues. election.

I recall European and Israeli news articles appearing in the Bush/Gore dust-up, bragged about the thousands of their citizens, residing in their home countries but with dual US citizenship, voted in every US election. One Israeli article claimed there were enough dual citizens absentee voting in Israel to control any Florida election.

The link and counter argument are debating whether Stalin might have ever said that.

Not allowing voter fraud disenfranchises Black voters.
You cannot name one instance of voter fraud.
Republicans do it too.
It's racist.

“Still, that doesn’t prove he didn’t.”

Like trying to disprove a negative. I’ll wait for the movie. LOL.

That is exactly what goes on particularly in the facilities that have union "help". The RPOF needs to expose this. It is really not hard. Nursing homes for people with dementia are not hard to find and id. Almost every SOE offers records via CD by various breakdowns. In this case a search by address for these homes on voters who voted absentee would only cost a few dollars. Since FL has had voter ID in place, this is really the only way to cheat. If we can shut it down address by address, it will have a huge impact.
