Officials found guilty in Obama, Clinton ballot petition fraud

A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

People need to get it through their heads that it is not possible for Obama to commit a crime in this country.

My husband met someone who has a relative in Washington. That relatives job was to ride on planes with presidents.
The relative just retired, and is now free to give opinions. According to "Joe Schmoh", I'll call him, oboma is as dumb as a box of rocks and overly superficial. But, "Joe" said, he has the brain of a Chicago criminal, and isn't afraid to break all the rules to get what he wants just like any other low life criminal.
According to "Joe", Bush was a classy guy, and extremely intelligent. He used the stupid act to get away with stuff he never would have had he been an arrogant SOB. People didn't fear him, and he used that to his advantage.

Obama prides himself on being an intellectual but has zero true wisdom.

He's DUMB and his failures like gun control, sequester and even the Olympics in Copenhagen show it.

Constitutionally I would think this invalidates the entire election.

(I can dream, can’t I?)

Thanks for relaying “Joe’s” report. Reminds me of stories I heard from USAF guys who worked on and around Air Force 1 during the Clintoon years.

We all know why we call them Rats. But, I get tired of calling them Rats and even DemonRATs. We should make up a new word, like Crats. Say it is the definition for those floaters that never seem to want to flush down the toilet.

Those Crats are at it again!

Now, that's the ticket!

The demoKaRATZ party is the party of treasonous pigs and traitors. My fantasy:


Johnn 'Boy' Boehner AKA "The No Nutz Putz" suddenly finds God and sprouts a pair and then RICOs the whole RATZ party.

It would be Nuremberg all over again. I dream of that pig holder and bulldikes napalitano and clintoon, in the dock, crying tears while trying to explain their treason.

hey, I can fantasize, can't I?

No doubt Democrat lawyers used every delaying tactic inhumanly possible.

LBJ got his early career rolling by ballot-stuffing.

Fraud in Democrat Chocago tipped the election to Kennedy in 1960.

Cheating is just what Democrats do.Well,that and steal money from hard-working Americans.

I wish voter fraud would be discovered before it is too late to do anything about it.

I am over 65 and have never heard of anyone being asked nor have I ever been asked to vote Rep. I just vote. You are barking up the wrong tree. Those who say-” time for a new party”-are further enabling the hard core lefties who hate us. I have seen Dems offer the poor food, money, and booze to vote.
