In most cases, residents simply forgot that they filled out an absentee-ballot application over the summer, when political parties were making their big push, officials said.

But William Radosevich, 73, of Altoona insists that it's voter fraud. He said he turned Iowa Democratic Party members away from his door in July. He was enraged when he, his wife and son recently received ballots in the mail.

I forgot to mention that the actual newspaper had a photo of the guy at the beginning of the story's signature, and then the signature of someone who requested the absentee ballot. Nowhere even close.

The website does not appear to have that photo.

They ought to get rid of absentee ballots in all but the most dire circumstances. They are rife with the possibility for fraud.

Daley said. "All of them are certainly well-versed in the law and understand the consequences of any kind of voter fraud."

When has the law ever stopped Democrat fraud??

When one party becomes so corrupt clintonized that it is willing to cheat American voters at every turn, the opposing party must either respond in kind or catch them in the act to stay viable. Since responding in kind is not an option, we must be EXTREMELY vigilant for any sign of Demofraud.

Absentee ballots should now be scrutinized carefully in all 50 states.

it seems to me that the Democrats have hit upon the absentee ballot as their latest strategy in cheating.

OK GW, actions have consequences. So what is it. Will your administration put these crooks in jail or will it be the same hollow words as with the Toons & NO consequences? Bet on the latter & we can assume it's just a small game in this "Two-Party Cartel".

For a pubby to win over DungHeap Harkin, the pubby voters would have to number twice as many at the polls, and it would still be a dead heat! The lying, cheating, fraudulent, criminal enterprise despotic democrat party has proven they will do ANYTHING dishonest to win! But what can one expect from a party that chooses as their slogan 'a woman's right to choose a serial killer'?

That's how absentee ballots work. They don't need a new law. They need to enforce current law. Every state law on it says that they are for the use of people who can not get to the polls (not for people who would prefer to vote by mail rather than stand in line). Oregon is different, of course, because they have vote-by-mail.

People in Iowa get unsolicited absentee ballots and we apply for them in WA state and never receive them.

Ummmmm, the county attorney's office would be a lot more likely to take this case to court if the old geezer had held onto the evidence.

Nothing will be done. This is what ticks me off about the GOP. We have so many wimps. We need some junkyard dogs like the Dim-o-crats have ie. James Carville and Paul Begala. I wish the GOP hierarchy had some guts.

I was wondering about that, the Daley issue. I wonder if there is any relationship to the Chicago Daley's; who are well versed in voter fraud.

I have often wondered where all these left wing votes come from, since few people I run into will admit to being Socialists....

I added this article ( link ) to these:

-The Vote Fraud Archives--

... and mass emailed it to the usual suspects in 'netland... anyone else interested in a little activism, go here:

Ignorance Making You Ill? Cure It!

for links, tools, & instructions about how to contact a pile of different people, and how to send a link to this story right here ( or anywhere else ) to a "mass email" using Outlook Express.


And let me add a mini-editorial... folks, we are down to the wire here, with this election- it's now, or never, march- or die.

Vote fraud could be a lever to use against the left- it's always been around, but in the last 10 years ( I still think it's one reason behind the clintons slither to power...) it has become blatant and in your face.

But there's one difference in this election cycle- stories about it are being told before the election.

Talk radio, the web, and citizen-activists... like you... are responsible. It's time to drive home the idea that we are aware of it, and won't tolerate it any longer. Get activated!

Backhoe, I agree it is good that stories like these are popping up before the election. I saw the signature, and it may very have well been the guy's wife. If she is 70 some years old, she well may be half gomered.

The part I found interesting is how many more D absentee ballots have been sent out, than R (or to those voters at least). Not surprising, but tis nice to see what the Rs are up against.

Yes, this is the first time I can recall stories going out before the election... Landrue (sic) in LA, Bob Dornan's loss in CA, were covered, but too late to do much, given the cowardly nature of some Republicans... I gotta run & fetch the wife! Back ASAP-

"Last week, we received three ballots in the mail. This upset me, and I threw the ballots in a fire."

Bad move on his part. His precinct has tagged him and his family as having received absentee ballots and they will not be able to vote on Election Day if he shows up without making prior arrangements.

Sounds like it could be a back door trick by the Dems - intentional or not - to eliminate these Republicans from being able to vote.

We've ran thousands here so far, and very very few questionables. They may have not been solicited, but they are being sent to legitimate people with legitimate addresses, and no duplicates to this point.
