COATES, Minnesota (AP) -- Prosecutors charged 95 people with forgery Wednesday for an alleged scheme in which they all registered to vote using the same address: a strip club recently shut down by city officials.

Most of the alleged forgers lived outside the town. The scheme, in which the club's owner also was charged, could have given club supporters a political majority in the town of 163 people. The mayor and two council members are in contested races next month in Coates, where 79 voted in the 2000 general election.

I guess that's a rhetorical question.

If the party is not mentioned, you can assume it's Democrat. If it was Republican, that info would be in the headline.

For a town of 163 people, 94 illegal voters should be easy to notice.

Well, if it's pillars they're concerned about, I guess a strip club is a pretty good place to find one....

Thanks for this bare and stripped down story!

This is what is important in this story: "It's shocking to see such a blatant attempt to undermine the most fundamental pillar of our democracy -- our right to vote," Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said.

We need to make election tampering in federal elections an act of treason punishable by death for those who organize these criminals. Get the evidence on the leaders, try them and shoot them. Freeze their bodies and bring them out to hang on portable scaffords two days before elections by voting places they tried to destroy. This would send a strong message not to screw with our votes.

Those guilty like the ones who signed up should do about 20 years in chain gangs for each act of voting fraud with no parole. The week before each election bring them out in their traitor coveralls in chains to clean up around the voting precincts and to send a loud message that voter fraud is no longer tolerated in America.

Its already a felony, and if enforced, means those caught lose their federal election voting priviliges (in addition to felony penalties). Thats why enforcing the current laws is so important in the next election cycle.

Thanks to voter fraud in Kali we have two really bad US Senators who negate the good that two conservative senators can do.

If we didn't have those two bad senators due to voter fraud and if other Rat senators who hold office due to voter fraud were not in the senate, our country would be in better shape.

An illegal vote for a US senator or President cancels the legitimate vote of an American voter.

The way the lists work is that you search them something like a user's posts (but not at the same place):

Click here and bookmark it, you'll always see the latest Voter Fraud articles (that have been bookmarked, feel free to add any that you run across).

Here's all of the bump lists

Boxer won by too big a margin for it to have been fraud. It was Feinstein's first election against Huffington that was rigged. All evening Huffington was ahead, the tobacco tax was going down in defeat handily, then early in the morning they got a whole bunch of votes from the bay area and suddenly things were reversed. I'm still mad about that "election".

Wisconsin statute does not allow a voter to register by party. These folks were really dumb, however. Wisconsin law allows registration at the polls -- that way, these folks would have voted before they were ever discovered. And our crooked Attorney General (now running for and about to be elected Governor) would have done NOTHING about it. Even if a poll worker noticed it, they cannot challenge at the polls. The crooks can still cast their ballots, and the State election committee and the AG will worry about it later.

Yes, you guessed it! Attorney General Jim Doyle is a DEMOCRAT!

One would think! However, in Wisconsin (where this offense occurred) you cannot ask a person at the polls if they have been convicted of a felony. You can suggest that it is fraud to register, if they have been convicted of a felony. But you cannot deny them the right to vote. At least that's how our City Clerk interprets the law.

"Boxer won by too big a margin for it to have been fraud."

I remind you that Saddam won 100% of 100% of the eligible Iraqi voters.

It's shocking to see such a blatant attempt by a county attorney to undermine the Republic.
