Skip to comments.Election Fraud in a Presidential Election: Did forged signatures tip the 2008 race?
Posted on 04/29/2013 11:10:48 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Last Thursday, according to Fox News, a jury in Indiana found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in the 2008 election. We wrote about the discovery of this fraud in our book, Whos Counting? How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk.
The mastermind behind the ballot-petition fraud was one Butch Morgan, then the Democratic-party chairman of St. Joseph County. With the help of three other employees of the county board of elections, Morgan faked names and signatures on ballot petitions that qualified Obama and Clinton for the May 6 Democratic primary.
Under Indiana state law, in order to enter the presidential-primary contest, a candidate must have the signatures of 500 registered voters from each of the states nine congressional districts. Obamas petition for the Second Congressional District, which includes St. Joseph County, had 534 signatures. Each petition page had ten voter signatures, and, according to evidence produced by the prosecutors, all the signatures on nine of Obamas petition pages were forged. Without those 90 fraudulent signatures, Obama would have fallen short of the 500-signature threshold. Had those signatures been challenged when they were submitted, he would not have been on the ballot for the primary.
Thirteen petition pages for Clinton were filled with fake signatures, but because she had submitted 704 signatures, she had enough legitimate signatures to meet the threshold anyway.
The court ruling certainly raises a fascinating what if scenario: Would history have been changed if this ballot-petition fraud had been discovered when it occurred? There were 72 delegates at stake in Indiana. Before the May 6 primary, the AP reported that Obama was barely ahead of Clinton, with 1,490 pledged delegates vs. 1,338. Clinton had a slight edge in superdelegate endorsements, 275.5 to Obamas 258, according to Bloomberg News.
Clinton barely beat Obama in the Indiana primary, garnering 51 percent of the vote. The delegates were split almost evenly, with Clinton receiving 38 and Obama receiving 34. Had Obama been disqualified from the ballot and Clinton had received all 72 delegates, it would have put her within striking distance of the nomination. How would candidate Obamas grassroots and financial support have been affected if he had been disqualified from the ballot and his campaign enveloped in a fraud scandal caused by local Democratic-party operatives?
Political momentum is a very delicate thing. Its certainly possible that such a setback for Obama could have changed the outcome of the 2008 Democratic nomination contest. But of course, we will never know. All we do know for sure is that Indiana experienced election fraud committed by party activists that may have affected the 2008 election. But of course, according to some, there is no election fraud in the United States.
Well so what. Small consequences to voter fraud. Will be worse next election. Don’t ever plan on a conservative to get elected for decades. The whole government is one big sick joke.
You see, it doesn’t matter if Conservative voters are cheated and disenfranchised, it only matters when democrats use fake voter disenfranchisement hype to create the situations that they use to cheat.
The vote is no longer fair in America. Country is over because of it.
“Community Organizer” MEANS “Vote Fraud enabler”!
I KNOW they do this because I saw MY signature was faked.
And when I asked them about it at the elections bureau they just kept telling me “Oh, it’s OK we can just give you a new signature card to file”
I had to tell them over and over that someone FAKED my signature, and I wanted to know WHO, and all they cared was telling me it was not a problem because I could fix it
I wanted to know WHO SIGNED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE and they would never help out with that. They seemed toally not to care that someone faked my card
Hillary! or Obama.
At the time, I'd have gone with BO, thinking that he'd not have had a snowball's chance of winning in November.
Now, with hindsight being what it is???? hmmmm. Hillary! or BO....... which would be worse?
so few thousand fake signatures , What difference does it make
Comment: Voter fraud will get worse.
That and keeping the military votes from being counted.
Compare the number of votes for 0 in 2008 Why would they have problems getting signatures. Then compare all to the 2012 vote. Ask what voting machines were used in each election and compare to the IN SOS report before the 2012 election when he refused to certify a specific company’s voting machine. The report is over 200 pages and should be available thru F o I if necessary
Here’s another one from Indiana
