Posted on 04/05/2014 9:20:07 AM PDT by neverdem
The spin doctors who deny the existence of voter fraud have no boundaries.
Plans to fight voter fraud are based on nightmares, tall tales, and paranoid fears, says Scott Keyes of the liberal Center for American Progress. Voter fraud is so rare youre more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud, asserts Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project.
Kim Strach, the new director of North Carolinas Board of Elections, disagrees. She just searched a database that comprises about half the registered voters in the U.S. and found 35,750 voters in her state whose first and last names and full date of birth match with someone in another state who also voted in the 2012 election. A smaller number (765) had exact matches on Social Security numbers, but that total is artificially low because only some states provide that number for any or all of their voters.
Remember: In 2008, Barack Obama only carried North Carolina by 14,177 votes out of 2.3 million cast.
Strach is turning over her findings to the state legislature along with recommendations on what laws would help clean up the rolls.
Nor is North Carolina the only state with voter fraud in the news. Cobby Williams, a former 2012 independent congressional candidate in Mississippi, was sentenced to five years in prison this week for knowingly registering a convicted felon.
Last month, police in Pontiac, Mich., found the mummified body of Pia Farrenkopf in the garage of her foreclosed home. She had apparently been dead since 2008, but was listed as having voted in the 2010 election for governor.
Texas Democratic state representative Lon Burnam filed suit in March claiming he was defeated by 111 votes in his Democratic primary because of an illegal vote-by-mail operation, which might have been orchestrated by his opponent.
Even when fraud is obvious and proven, some liberals will dismiss or even defend it. In 2012, MSNBC host Lawrence ODonnell, former staff director of the Senate Finance Committee, insisted it was perfectly reasonable for voter fraud to occur occasionally. When challenged, he repeated himself.
Also recently, former Cincinnati election official Melowese Richardson, who was released early from prison after being convicted of voting six times for Barack Obama in 2012, was called up on stage at a rally for Al Sharptons National Action Network for what Cincinnati National Action Network president Bobby Hilton called a welcome home. She was also hugged by the Reverend Al Sharpton.
All that was too much for local Democratic-party chairman Tim Burke, who was at the rally.
What she did was criminal conduct and was particularly problematic because of her role as a poll worker, he told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
I myself witnessed a disturbing example of indifference to voter fraud at the Democratic convention in Charlotte in August 2012. A documentary team was premiering their new film on voting rights, called Electoral Dysfunction, hosted by comic Mo Rocca and later shown on PBS nationwide that fall.
What was awkward about the premiere was that the producers had to acknowledge after the lights came up that one of the main subjects of the film, former Democratic state representative Mike Marshall of Indiana, was sitting in the audience.
Marshall had been indicted on several counts of voter fraud since the film had been completed. A Marshall representative told the audience the indictment was an unfair persecution by a partisan prosecutor. The Democratic crowd gave Marshall a standing ovation after it was explained his indictment prevented him from taking questions.
The facts were somewhat at odds with this partisan pep rally. Marshall pleaded guilty to voter fraud in early 2013 and in May was sentenced to 18 months in prison for running an absentee-ballot racket..
Circuit-court judge Jon Webster noted that he had taken special measures to ensure the integrity of the prosecution. When this case first came about, I knew there was a possibility for political overtones, the judge said. Thats why I appointed special prosecutors for this case from both [political] parties. The judge went on to say Marshalls crimes were indeed serious.
Those who tinker with the election process are tinkering with the foundations of democracy, he said. I worry that this will only serve to further voter apathy and voter cynicism. I dont want the citizens of Jennings County to question the appointment of elected officials and wonder if it was really their votes that put them there.
Marshalls supporters were of a different mind. I am just really disappointed. There are no victims in this case, said Jennings County Democratic-party chairman Karen Snyder. After his plea agreement, she promised he would be hired to work for local Democrats in the future: I know Mike as well as most people and I trust him. Without question, we will welcome Mike back to work for the party.
No one is suggesting that liberal acceptance of voter fraud is universal. Nevadas Democratic attorney general Catherine Cortez Masto vigorously pursued the voter registration fraudsters of the now-defunct ACORN and charged the group itself with voter fraud, which included hiring people from a prison work-release program who had been convicted of identity theft.
But liberals who consistently deny the existence of voter fraud even absentee-ballot fraud help contribute to a climate in which such offenses against democracy are too often excused or ignored.
Voter fraud harms people in the Democratic coalition more than most, says former Democratic congressman Artur Davis of Alabama, I have seen up close how Democratic primaries have been stolen in Alabama by corrupt machines that then deliver bad services and poor schools and rob people of their future. Davis, who is now a Republican, says measures to prevent voter fraud shouldnt be controversial.
There is a reason that polls consistently show over 60 percent of African-Americans and Hispanics support voter ID, he told me. They realize voter fraud isnt a myth, and saying it is doesnt make it so.
John Fund is national-affairs columnist at National Review Online.
They are too busy trying to make a national story out of Bridgeclosergate in New Jersey to pay any mind to phony scandals!
You ignore what they say and do what needs to be done despite the lamentations of their women.
“Seriousness of the charges” only meant something to Dems in the Anita Hill scandal.
Democrats don’t believe that multiple voting is fraud.
They think it is what should happen in every election.
ACORN was built out of such ideas, IMO.
I wonder how many dead people have had ballots cast for the Democratic Party in city, state, and national elections over the past century. I’m guessing the number is in the tens of millions.
Seriousness of the charges only meant something to Dems....When Bush1 was accused of taking a U2 to Iran to release the hostages out of the Embassy when Regan won the election. Most hilarious accusation of the decade but it stuck. Where is the same chutzpa against Hillary and Obummer in Benghazi? Leaders? Any?
You don’t argue with them; you defeat them.
Jimmy Carter still clings to that conspiracy theory as does Oliver Stoned (of the Hollywood Reds).
Mr. Stoned tried to get financing to make a movie about it leading into the 1988 election cycle. When he saw that the funding/completion would not come in time to affect the election, he moved on.
Dems don't think Dems stealing elections is wrong.
They "have to" because voters are "too stupid" to vote the right way.
They also harbor thoughts of killing and imprisoning those who wont' submit to their ideology.
It's an inconvenient truth.
The pinklisting of the CEO of Mowzilla (who legally donated to a ballot initiative that OVERWHELMINGLY passed) shows that they will continue their efforts.
Exactly. Its why they need perpetual victims who feel that they’re only taking what is rightfully theirs.
Telling the DUmmies that they had no right to cheat is what got Bev Harris into trouble with the DUmmies. They were demanding that she provide evidence of the vast right wing fraud machine while openly talking about how they could vote fraudulently.
Only when a few of these treacherous scum are arrested, prosecuted and executed will the dead soul democrtas slow down their vote cheating. IF We The People are the true sovereigns of this Republic, then what these bastards are doing is treachery on the level of treason, because every one of these democrat illegally cast votes cancels the legitimate vote of a sovereign. I say execute a few of them and see how things go. If the cheating does not stop, execute more of them. They are disenfranchising the true sovereigns of what the founders established as America. These cheaters are the enemies of America.
Remember the guy in Flordia who was caught with a voting machine and blank ballots in his car? Start the executions there!
Was very surprised to find that old site archived. Blast from da past!
Absentee balloting should be outlawed in all states. It is the method of choice for Democrat cheating. Sure, you’ll have to show up to vote, but that is the way it is done in many countries. This should be at the top of the list of “Things to Correct” when the Republicans win the Senate. Let our skinny prez veto this voting reform and see how the public reacts.
Only one problem, since WE are the law abiding citizens: PROVE IT!
We need 3 things to clean up our elections: a photo to be matched with the voter’s I.D., a thumb print to be matched against a master list with each state’s voter registration rolls, and HARSH punishment for all violators. Mandatory minimum of 2 years in prison and a permanent revocation of all future voting rights.
Sure. And when the ballot box stops working it's time to turn to the cartridge box.
Or require a copy of one’s state-issued I.D. and a thumb print as a validation measure on absentee ballots. Legit people casting legit votes won’t mind.
“Dem’s Voter Fraud Denial”
The Dem’s vehement denial that voter fraud exists, even though there’s proof that it does, is furthering the revolution, and furthering the revolution is paramount for Progressives.
(The only morality is the revolution, all other bourgois morality, for example that of knuckle-dragging,
gun-loving, bible-thumping, Christian morons, is pointless and counter-revolutionary.)
well, since you brought it up, this solution is not an ends justify the means, unless you disagree with the founders’ intentions to execute treasonous scum and villainy. The operant system is to arrest, bring to trial, if proven guilty, execute the bastards. You will not slow the democrats’ cheating machine down any other way. And if they are allowed to continue, just look what they lust for, as illustrated with their little barry bastard soetoro boy fascist prince, who is destroying the nation right before your eyes, at the behest of those who are his masters ... and I would find them and do the same, if possible, with the ends being America’s last ditch effort to survive the globalist fascism.
Even with denial and magical thinking that accompanies Marxist/progressive philosophy, they all still must know that voter fraud exists.
If they did not, then they would have absolutely no issues with voter I.D. laws.
Where the denial and magical thinking really come into play is when the Marxists/progressives do not realize that voter fraud eventually takes away THEIR votes as well.
Competent Republican leadership might help, but that doesn't exist, either.
It is due to the collective sociopathic belief that if they lose their elected politicians they will lose more than they will gain, it is a base fear...Almost primal in nature...
A psychological condition similar to hoarding “things”, inanimate objects, that mean more to them than substantive relationships, facts, true compassion, and the need to combat EVERYTHING and EVERYONE that challenges their belief system, no matter the cost...
Not that I hang my hat on things that talk radio says about why liberals are the way they are, but I came to the conclusion that the political ideology that is liberalism is a mental disorder/dysfunction, before it was made a public catch phrase on a certain radio program a few years ago...
There is no real “single” fix or treatment for this issue, it has more to do with an individuals progression into this problem, than a collective bandage that can be applied to more than just a few people at any one time...
It is also truly a gift that keeps on giving for future generations...
Most of us will be dead and gone, planted, before any of this can be corrected, if it can at all...
Therefore we have malicious crimes like voter fraud running rampant around the country, with no one inside that process believing what they are doing is wrong...
You cannot convince them otherwise...
The only thing you can do is charge, give them a trial, convict and punish to the fullest extent of the law, in sufficient numbers to cause even a minor pause in the overall effort to remain in power...
We cannot even get them to hold someone in criminal contempt in Congress for obfuscating, and obstruction of justice in the case of Laura Lerner who is obviously prepared to be put into prison, to await a future pardon from a departing president in the next 2 years...
There is no one on our side of the aisle with the political courage to do this task...
So I’m not holding my breath...
“vote fraud deniers.”
Nice ring to it.
I think vote fraud is “settled science” by now.. Off to the gallows with the deniers!!!!

(Excerpt) Read more at miami.cbslocal.com ...
Absentee vote fraud is the tip of the latin voter fraud iceberg. Latinos use scores of vote-fraud tactics in their effort to consolidate Third World power---(1) voter address frauds, (2) forging petitions for public office,(3) registering to vote under multiple identities; (4) voting under several identities, and so on and so forth.
EXHIBIT ONE---ETHNIC SOLIDARITY REARS ITS UGLY HEAD NY State candidate Nelson Castro's woes began in 2008, when the NY Board of Elections began examining Castros eligibility to run in the 86th district after allegations that numerous voters were registered at the same addresses as his home and that of a campaign worker.
During an Aug. 7, 2008, hearing, Castro lied under oath, denying he knew the fraudster-- one of whom was his campaign organizer.
The candidate-selection committee ignored red flags b/c they were determined to put Dominican Republic natives on the ballot to increase latino "gimmee" power in Albany.
The Democrat selection committee then anointed Dominican Castro, a felon, as the Democrat candidate. Castro's extensive rap sheet was not considered a deterrent for public office.
The NY candidate selection committee used corrupt Dominican standards to give Castro the nod---with no compunctions about corrupting the US system.
The fact that illegal Dominican Republic immigrants registered to vote using Castro's home address, means they are probably registered at their own addresses, as well. How many times did these Dominican latinos vote? Castro was never nailed on this.
EXHIBIT TWO Obamacare is a huge voter fraud machine to register unsuspecting enrollees to vote and plug them into Democrat voter rolls.
healthcare.gov is also a voter registration site: Unsuspecting enrollees are being plugged into Democrat voter rolls.
Local couple upset after receiving pre-marked voter registration card from "Covered California" (Cali O/Care)
10news | 03-29-2014 | Preston Phillips / FR Posted by Kevin in California
A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.
Voter photo ID requirements, the most commonly proposed antidote to election fraud and cheating, will not by itself cure the problem. Other steps toward a cleaner election system would include (1) a requirement of documentation of American citizenship at the time of initial voter registration, (2) more frequent updating of voter registration rolls to eliminate deceased voters and those who have moved out of the precinct, (3) repeal of Motor Voter and prohibiting government agencies other than election boards from issuing voter registration materials, (4) elimination of routine early voting (which affords more opportunities for fraudsters to play their trade), (5) tougher requirements for absentee voting, (6) elimination of same-day registration and required mail-in voting in the states that have foolishly adopted those practices.
Yes, that story has made the rounds. I believe that several people who complained about receiving voter registration materials marked with an "x" next to Democrat expressed fear of repercussions if their names were released. How ugly things have gotten!
The cheating, treacherous, treasonous rats will not stand for those changes! Guillotines from orbit, it’s the only way to clean up the sewer democrats have made of America.
If their pernicious political power is limited, it won't make a difference. Those changes (which in most instances are nothing more than returning to a former election procedure which has become too corrupted in recent years) can be enacted and I would think the majority of the citizenry in most states would support all or most of them.
Let the democrats LOSE an election through “voter fraud”
and listen to them scream FOR voter ID.
Every single one of those efforts will be fought by those of a certain political ideology to the death...Literally, by dead people...
Pardon the pun...
There have been very few instances of that, none that I know of in presidential or congressional elections.
There are several reasons why election fraud is lot more common among Democrats than among Republicans:
(1) As a whole (but with many individual exceptions), Republicans have a generally higher standard of morality (which isn't exactly saying much).
(2) Democrats, in general, deal with more ignorant and more corruptible voting constituencies in densely populated areas.
Democrats tend to have more of an incentive to commit fraud, because they rely on elections for secure jobs in government bureaucracies generally more so than Republicans, who generally find it easier to get work outside of government if they should lose elections.
WRONG. Leave the dead on the rolls. It's the short cut way of knowing how extensive Democrat voter fraud is... the more dead vote, the more fraud.
Democrats vote the people who don't show up. The dead NEVER show up to vote... It's the best fraud indicator we have.
They don't. That would take forever and produce few voters. It's NOT how they cheat.
Democrats vote the cards of the people who don't show up to vote. The ‘dead vote’ is an accidental byproduct of the way they cheat. And it's a wonderful way for us to tell the extent of their cheating.
Lots of democrats are nothing more than lowlife criminals... They get off on the excitement of cheating and tricking people...
