Voter Fraud: The Left's Tool For Social Justice
American Thinker ^ | 4/11/2014 | Matthew Vadum

Posted on 04/11/2014 2:43:44 AM PDT by markomalley

Why did Democrats applaud the loathsome community organizer Melowese Richardson, a freshly released, unrepentant voter fraud felon, at a recent "voting rights" rally in Ohio?

Because, like Richardson, they believe they are entitled to vote more than once against a system they see as unjust.  Some serial voters do what they do in order to exact revenge against a society they feel did them or their ancestors wrong.  Richardson is far from alone.  Double-voting is distressingly common.

Many leftists have contempt for the electoral process because they don’t believe in the electoral system as it is constituted in capitalist America.  To them, elections are already a fraud – an instrument of the rich, or as Saul Alinsky prefers to call them, the Haves.  If the electoral system doesn’t serve “the people,” but is only an instrument of the Haves, then election fraud is justified as the path to a future that will serve the Have-Nots, as David Horowitz has explained.

This belief helps Democrats and the rest of the left rationalize their habitual efforts to suppress and cancel out lawfully cast votes.  It helps to explain the strenuous efforts of leftists like former Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. (D-Ill.), now federal prisoner number 32451-016, to assure the public that voter registration fraud is no big deal and that fraudulent registrations almost never turn into fraudulent votes.

This is why liberal fascists inside and outside government routinely excuse electoral fraud – in all its manifestations – arguing in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary that such fraud is merely a Republican invention created to keep minorities and the poor down.

Social justice, collective salvation and all other forms of “envyology” are little more than a means of destroying morality with an end goal of controlling people.

Its easy to manipulate people into breaking the law once people are convinced that something has been stolen from them or is owed to them.

I believe Pope Benedict called it demonically inspired.

One of several gripes I have with Dubya is that he did nothing in the wake of the 2000 election to address voter fraud issues.

I’m just glad my state has a top notch secretary of state who has made voter fraud a priority and stuck with it.

Its a longstanding GOP failure to let things slide once they’ve won. We can’t let them drop the pursuit of justice against the criminality from the current administration.

Starting with the Clinton Administration, the will of the people is secondary. Lying, cheating, and corruption are used to get elected, just as McAuliffe lied about his intent to hold the budget hostage so he can force the State of Virginia to implement Obamacare. The shameless Democrats are determined to wreck the economy of the State of Virginia!

The Democrats do many evil things that lead to chaos. That is where we are headed!

I am tired of the excuses as to why this Democrat Party feels “justified” in cheating people out of their vote.

The real downtrodden are those that get up on election day and head to the polls to cast their one vote in good faith.

We are run by a criminal organization, the Democrat Party. So far the injustice is that they have been allowed to ruin the lives of hardworking Americans who have spent years building up this country to only have all their hard work stripped away by fraudsters and thieves. Make no mistake, the left are thieves because they help themselves to what they did not earn.

We sit back and allow them to ruin this country and infect our kids with something akin to communism. We even let them lie in history books that teach children to hate our own country. Just pathetic.

I did notice that these cretins like Holder melt down and show their true colors when we start fighting back in their face, by not extending respect to a crook like Holder. Gohmert proved that this week.

Keep the pressure on and stop playing into their hands with the collegial approach, they do not deserve any respect for what they have done. They deserve prison.

My stomach was in knots for weeks after the election of 2000, I just knew the democrats were going to cheat their way to a Gore presidency.

Most of us felt the same way! That said, I do not believe Obama won the 2012 election. Massive fraud won 2012.

In 2008, I think Obama won, but they tried out their cheat methods and were able to decipher how many extra votes he got with the fraud.

They turned around and did the same in 2012.

Believe me, the closer we get to the 2014 mid terms, the media will report that the races have “tightened” up. That is the clue they have their cheat machine ready to roll.

I think the states should use then same system as the national electoral process.Using Virginia as an example.lets say there are 100 districts in a state.The GOP candidate wins in 99 voting districts,yet the Democrat wins in the one blue district.So why is it fair to hand the state to the Democrat? right?then again,does anyone ever beleive the voting tallies coming out of any deep blue districts that seem to often wait till the end before reporting their votes?

Democrats use the tactics of psychopaths... Democrats are glib, grandiose, and consummate liars. .

Yes, they're proud of voter fraud.

Yes, Al Sharpton doesn't embarrass them, yes, most prisoners and criminals are democrats... yes, their trolls lie to and about us... Democrat leaders are proud of being liars. Democrats aren't 'compassionate' toward criminals. They ARE the criminals. They celebrated the lowlife Richardson, because the lowlife was a hero to them.

Go back and look at my posts from the period right after the 2012 “election”. Massive fraud on our own block.

“head to the polls to cast their one vote in good faith”.
Yeah, that’s gone.
I still vote in any election that I can especially on local issues and candidates, but on the national level, my one vote gets smothered in hundreds of manufactured votes.

And still no one with any power is making any efforts to stop this corruption.

DEMS’VOTER-FRAUD DENIAL

How do you address a problem they insist doesn’t exist?

By John Fund

NRO APRIL 3, 2014

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 “you’re 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 Carolina’s 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 O’Donnell, 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 Sharpton’s 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. “That’s why I appointed special prosecutors for this case from both [political] parties.” The judge went on to say Marshall’s crimes were indeed serious.

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 shouldn’t 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 isn’t a myth, and saying it is doesn’t make it so.”

“Democrats wrote the book on voter fraud.”

Agreed. Perhaps it’s time for the right to take a few pages from that book. 4 or 5 million extra Republican votes every election cycle certainly wouldn’t hurt. Whining won’t win this battle.
