Granite Staters are repeatedly told by Democratic politicians and the activist left that voter fraud is a myth and that the only effect of voter ID laws is to suppress the vote. They repeat that spin even as instances of actual fraud pile up.
The latest involves Lorin C. Schneider Jr. of Carver, Mass. It is a fact, documented by records in Hillsborough County Superior Court North, that Schneider has pled guilty to one felony and two misdemeanor charges of wrongful voting. According to the state Attorney Generals office, Schneider voted in Manchesters Ward 9 in the presidential elections of 2008 and 2012, and in the 2012 Democratic primary. No one will be surprised to learn that Schneider took a Democratic ballot.
On July 29, 2012, the Concord Monitor editorialized that voter ID laws enacted by legislatures in New Hampshire and at least nine other states have nothing to do with fraud and everything to do with a Republican campaign to suppress the vote and steal elections. What great timing.
Twice that very year six months before and three months after the publication of that editorial Schneider voted illegally in Manchester. He was everything the Republicans had warned about: a Massachusetts voter traveling to New Hampshire to vote illegally in the hope of changing the outcome of our elections. Schneider said he voted here because he figured his vote would count here, but would not count back home in Massachusetts.
(Also in the 2012 general election, someone voted illegally in Manchesters Ward 3 under the name of Caitlin Legacki, a former Jeanne Shaheen staffer who was then living in Missouri.)
Schneiders illegal voting occurred both before and after the states voter ID law took effect. Gloria Pilotte, Ward 9s longtime moderator, said she never caught the fraud, so someone must have reported Schneider. So we see that the voter ID law is no cure-all for voter fraud. But as Pilotte said, it probably makes it harder to commit. Though the law helps, it does little good if the voter rolls are not regularly scrubbed of voters who died or, like Schneider and Legacki, moved away.
That is two votes that were basically illegally negated for a Republican.
Can you imagine if even ONE Democrat voter were improperly prevented from voting? He would be the new mascot.
I love some of the comments at teh site. Hey, if the fraud is only one or three or four or so people (maybe more) it does not matter, the pubbies are the fraudsters because they demand Voter ID which will disenfranchise tens of thousands...
And they can seldom produce any examples (illegals don't count.)
Can't find what you weren't looking for in the first place...
Election fraud will never be fixed until Republicans are seen to be benefiting from it.
I got stuck with a State Senator (Jim Sullivan) in WI for 4 years who voted in his community (Wausatosa) AND mine (West Allis), the ‘tosa clerk falsified voting records by erasing his vote. He claimed he “forgot” he voted in his community. He was never charged, she was never charged and I think she still has her job! We got him voted out the next cycle.
If our side were to engage in vote fraud the left would be up in arms; but since they benefit from 99.99998% of it they defend it at all costs.
Always remember the Nazi line: “If you tell a lie often enough, loudly enough and with enough conviction it becomes truth.”
Americans have to wake up and start believing in real Americans instead of the MSM/public education projection of them, and accept its righteous decision to reduce government. The MSM, pop culture, and government-controlled education's projection is of itself, leftist liberal dominant. On the ground, we live in a country where leftists have to cheat to get in office because the real votes go in the other direction. We are a majority.
That is the REAL significance of vote fraud.
Ho-hum, one case in hundreds of thousands.
But don’t - DO NOT - ask voters for ID, THAT would be unjust.
