No Way: Dem Congressional Candidate Commits…Voter Fraud?
Townhall.com ^ | September 11, 2012 | Daniel Doherty

If you’re inclined to tune into MSNBC from time to time (as I am) you might remember when Touré -- one of the controversial co-hosts of the daytime program “The Cycle” -- asserted on national television last month that “voter fraud does not exist” in the United States of America. Republicans, he argued, have worked tirelessly this year to disenfranchise minority voters by forcing them to procure (and show) photo identification cards when they vote. Now, of course, one can certainly argue the varying degree to which voter fraud exists in the United States. This is an important and -- dare I say -- healthy debate Republicans and Democrats should have. But to blithely assert that it never happens is simply beyond comprehension. As we have reported time and again, voter fraud is a real issue in America -- one that undermines and weakens the sanctity of the democratic process. Thus, one might find it deliciously ironic to learn that a Democratic candidate for federal office -- Wendy Rosen of Maryland, to be exact -- withdrew from her congressional race today after allegations surfaced she committed voter fraud (via The Baltimore Sun):

Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008.

It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28.

Democratic leaders — who raised the allegations, urged Rosen to step aside and notified prosecutors — said they would gather Central Committee members this month to identify a write-in candidate for the district, which includes the Eastern Shore and parts of Harford, Carroll, Cecil and Baltimore counties.

Republicans, meanwhile, said the allegations prove that voter fraud is real and called on Democrats to join the GOP in calling for reforms.

But how -- exactly -- did this (erstwhile) Democratic congressional candidate commit voter fraud? Well, it’s really quite simple:

State Democratic Chairwoman Yvette Lewis said an examination of voting records in Maryland and Florida showed that Rosen participated in the 2006 general election and the 2008 primaries in both states.

Maryland and Florida both held gubernatorial and congressional contests in 2006 and presidential primaries in 2008, when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton competed for the Democratic nomination.

Asked by The Sun on Monday if she had voted in both states in the same elections, Rosen said she did not remember how she voted. Asked if she had voted twice in the 2008 presidential primaries, she declined to comment "due to possible litigation."

Translation: Voter fraud does exist. So the next time a liberal democrat tries to convince you otherwise -- and without any evidence -- kindly refer them to the aforementioned article. Who knows? They might even thank you afterwards.

We watched Villaraigosa steal the vote from the Dem rank and file right in front of everyone.

But...but...but Eric the Holder and the other ‘RATS said that voter fraud doesn’t exist.

This article can’t be true. She ONLY voted once in each state. Really?

Rosen said she was able to register in Florida because she owned property there.

BS, she is lying. I am a poll worker in Florida so I just happen to know a thing or two about the voting and voting registration laws here.

So, how did they discover this? I’d like to know because something that went into effect without a big deal was in addition to Florida looking for illegals on the voting rolls, a parallel investigation was launched to ferret out people registered in other states.

Could this have been the first big fish hooked in this very quiet investigation?

Furthermore, she may very well have drivers licenses from more than one state as well because to qualify to register to vote in Florida, the application must be accompanied by either a Florida Drivers License or a Florida ID card. I just checked with the office and one person cannot have both.

If she has a Maryland Drivers License, she also could not get a Florida ID Card because it is all keyed of one’s SSN. Now, if she has more than one SSN, then the scandal even gets deeper.

I watched several local Baltimore news TV shows today. Somehow they did not find this newsworthy. If she had been a republican...just wondering.

I’d start looking for an undisclosed juvenile record just to see if she managed to get additional driver’s licenses so she could get into beerjoints.

This is a popular form of voter fraud. A friend of mine has a home in FL but lives in PA. He got papers in the mail telling him he needed to register in FL.

He threw them out but the point is, how many are voting twice especially by absentee ballot?

I'm sure only because Democrats are expected to cheat. So when one is caught it's as newsworthy as a cow crossing a country road.

I checked on the DL thing as well. They cross check those by SSN nationally as well. She is in far bigger trouble than the initial story indicates.

I will go by the assumption that the quiet investigations by Florida just for this is how she got busted. There was another story about an NAACP official in Mississippi who was voting for 10 of her dead relatives.

I know the county here (Duval) has its augmented rules that no more than 50% of the poll workers can be related and that each precinct will have two workers from each party who verify the credentials and addresses of the voters seeking a ballot. The Supervisor of Elections also provides his personal cell number to the poll workers to call him personally if they have a problem or suggestion.

This goes a long way in reducing any potential fraud with oversight inside the beast rather than relying on Poll Watchers who are very limited in their capability for oversight. I know, I was a Poll Watchers for the last three cycles.

I’m sorry she’s withdrawing. She’s a perfect representation of Democratic Party values.

Now they can say that they "covered" the story. The word "macaca", a word with no meaning, generated more than 70 front page stories in the Washington Post. We'll see how many stories this voter fraud story generates.

In many precincts, there are no poll workers from one of the parties, especially in Baltimore City. Thus, two people who are Democrats simply sign the lines that say "Republican". There are very few Republicans in Baltimore City and many, many precints. Perhaps these are some of the very same precincts where the votes come in well after the polls are closed and most precincts have already reported.
