Posted on 09/19/2008 1:39:19 PM PDT by steve-b
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.) told John McCain's campaign Friday to take control over its supporters following reports that a Republican county chairman in Michigan planned to use lists of recently foreclosed residents to block them from voting
"It is beyond disgraceful that the Republican Party now seems to be targeting those who are suffering the most," Conyers said. "It appears that individuals who can't recall how many houses they own don't understand how awful it is to lose your home to foreclosure, and don't know that you don't need to own property to vote in the United States of America."
"It should surprise no one that the people who gave us the worst economy since the Great Depression would now want to prevent those victimized by this economy from voting in the coming elections. Senator McCain needs to step forward now and halt the Republican Party's efforts to profit politically from the economic misery of others."
In a letter sent to the McCain, Conyers asked the Arizona senator to "repudiate any efforts of the Republican Party and any of its state affiliates to engage in voter suppression and intimidation tactics."
Conyers, the most corrupt vile racist, playing the race card. What a surprise.
They really hate it when the LAW sticks it right up their .....
Squeels on a Pig?
And I demands reparations!
How interesting - Conyers wants McCain to repudiate, reject, and denounce voter intimidation at the same time Barack Hussein Obama is encourage his supporters to do so.
Conyers to McCain: Our vote fraud is off limits.
Tell a lie often enough, and it becomes truth...
If you lose your house...your not living there anymore.
If your not living there anymore, why should you be voting there?
If these people become “homeless” and move to a new state, can they vote twice? Why not? Are you a racist McCain? No 2 votes, no peace!!!
Reports from where? Sorry, Conyers, until you provide some evidence, I'm not buying it.
Unfortunately, Since the GOP probably won't take back the Senate and even though they may take back the House, any electoral vote challenge in a split situation would go back to the Governor.
McCain should tell him fine - he will do it, if Obama guarentees only live Democrats will be voting in Chicage.
Conyers should get get a handle on those perennial underachievers of vote fraud, the Democrat sponsored ACORN.
What, are they being investigated now in 4 or 5 states?
OK so Conyers is saying you should move to another address and still be allowed to vote for the old address?
And BTW some other potential voters who now live at your old address may be prevented from voting.
what is the Law you are referring to??
I'm sure he'll start bitching and moaning regarding "voter suppression" on January 21, 2009 in anticipation of the 2012 presidential election.
the worst economy since the Great Depression .... Gee Whiz! Where did I hear this before? Last election cycle?
Is he still taking money from the KGB? The democrat party has been full infiltarted by communists.
“The Worst Economy Since Jimmy Carter” just doesn’t have the same ring to it....
Conyers should worry about his wife, Monica, the new Detroit City Council chairperson. She will be INDICTED by the Feds and GOING TO JAIL pretty soon for taking bribes...allegedly caught on tape. She is a vile and despicable person.
This might be worth reading if Conyers wasn’t a horse a$$.
Michigan has a six month redemption period so, actually, you do still live there anymore.
I saw this old goat attempting to read this statement to Muller this morning. It was all he could do just to read it. All I could think of was what a crook.
Read the rest of the posts... you’ll figure it out...
That said, Conyers is still a commie a-hole.
If you're talking about the MI House and Senate designating the recipient of electoral votes for MI, only they can do it. Under Article II of the US Constitution the Governor has no authority over Presidential electors whatsoever.
Conyers - ‘Community Organizer’
I thought I read somewhere that the subject was simply a rumor and that the rumor was started by someone in the Hussein campaign.
A flaming commie a-hole...fur shur.
Maybe Rangel could explain to Conyers how things “just happen”.
Click on the WCW link just below and see: "Endorsers of the Call to Drive Out the Bush Regime Include". Conyers' endorsement appears right after Ward Churchill's. Al Sharpton's, Maxine Waters and Jesse Jackson Jr's endorsements are also on the list:
And on Oct 5, 2006, the demonRat chair of the House Judiciary Committee, John Conyers Jr, gave a speech to the World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Bush Regime organization. Here's full-page coverage of it from the WCW website:
Fact: World Can't Wait--Drive Out the Bush Regime is a Maoist-revolutionary movement organized by the Revolutionary Communist Party! (scroll down the list that appears (after clicking link) to find the World Can't Wait organization --rwor.org is the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party):
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
Profile: World Can't Wait (WCW)
*Revolutionary communist movement that stages protests against the Bush administration
*Organizes college and high-school students
*Founded in June 2005 by Charles Clark Kissinger, a longtime leader of the Revolutionary Communist Party
What ??? Show me where you see that in Bush v. Gore.
I am sorry I brought this up, never mind, just forget it.
Hey Conyers, remember when you vicitmized “those hurting the most” by taking turkeys meant for the poor and passing them out to your cronies?
Once the EC vote's held, if there's no majority, the US House votes on the President, with one vote for each state. I actually believe Republicans would not need to retake the House in order to win that vote -- they would just need to control a majority of State delegations in the House (which, I believe because of small States, they would.) The US Senate would pick the VP, and that would definitely be Biden.
Every election, the same old crap. Blacks are being kept from voting. The same crap over and over again.
If there are two disputed set of electors, both houses of Congress would vote on which set of electors to accept. Even if there is a split among the House and Senate, it would go back to the Governor. Since that Granholm is Governor, she would chose the Obama slate.
My hardcore Democratic near-ninety pappy told me recently that he's never seen things so bad. So I asked dear old dad if today was worse than the Great Depression. He said yes. My father lived in Detroit for a good share of his youth, and maybe he told Conyers. (smirk)
It’s amazing that Conyers can form these “thoughts” while he’s crapping in his Depends, and drooling all over himself.>[p>
You go, Crap-Boy!
I am right, look it up. It’s the law, Electoral Count Act in 1887. It was put in right after the election of 1876.
The heart of the dispute in Bush v. Gore was that in order to meet the safe harbor provisions of the law, the electors needed to be certified before a meaningful recount could be obtained. Note the timing: the Governor would have had nothing to say about a dispute in the EC vote count at the point where the House and Senate would (potentially) become involved in 2001, because Florida law required certification by the Governors appointee before the safe harbor date; and so does the controlling US Code 5.3. This is what the SCOTUS ruled.
Mark Levin explained this on his show. In the event there are two different slate of electors, let’s say, one slate for Gore and one for Bush.
The House would have voted for the Bush Slate and the Senate would have voted for the Gore Slate. In order to resolve the the deadlock, the matter would have gone back to the Governor of Florida, who was Jeb Bush, and Bush would have won.
I have a lot of respect for Levin, but if he said that, he was mistaken.
Obambi, John reveals, has 9,000 lawyers ready to challenge November 4 election results in thousands of precincts in hundreds of counties in dozens of states, all under the phony claim of "voter suppression" perpetrated by evil election-stealing Republicans.
Just to take one single county, Bernalillo County in New Mexico: over 1,000 fraudulent voters registrations have been submitted by ACORN, and if they are not accepted, ACORN will scream "voter suppression!"
Incidentally, Obambi's call for his followers to "argue with your neighbors and get in their face" if they don't support him (9/17 in Elko NV) is a classic ACORN intimidation technique. Read John's book.
