  • ACLU seeks copy of proposed changes to US election law

    The American Civil Liberties Union asked a federal court to force Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to turn over proposed changes to the nation’s voter registration law that the conservative Republican was photographed bringing to a meeting in November with Donald Trump. That draft document — which is partially obscured by Kobach’s left arm and hand in the photograph taken by The Associated Press — is being sought as part of the ACLU’s lawsuit challenging Kansas’ restrictive voter registration law. The ALCU filed its request for the proposed amendments late Monday. Kobach has championed Kansas’ proof-of-citizenship requirement as an...

    Video: 30 seconds at link. EXCLUSIVE: An unidentified male on Sunday potentially violated Ohio election law by standing outside a polling station to hand out invitations to an event touting appearances by Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and NBA star LeBron James. “It is clear that this is extremely questionable, if not illegal behavior,” a spokesman for Secretary of State Jon Husted’s office said after reviewing a video of the incident taken by the Fox News Channel. Husted told Fox last week that his office would investigate any allegation of fraud or tampering that is brought to his attention by...

    A nonpartisan watchdog group Thursday called for a federal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign committee, accusing it of illegally accepting millions of dollars worth of “opposition research” and other assistance from Correct the Record, an outside super-PAC, in violation of U.S. election laws. The Campaign Legal Center also filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission to initiate probes of Donald Trump’s campaign, and two super-PACs backing it, for similar violations of laws barring “coordination” between political campaigns and outside groups. But the Campaign Legal Center’s detailed 52-page complaint against Hillary for America and Correct the Record — part of the...

    The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won't punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law. The reason: It's not worth the effort.

    Join us, as our fictional young campaign volunteer learns the “benefits” of postponement... to a party that practices vote fraud… Pavel Syerov, Jr. was home from college, doing errands, when he found himself in the old neighborhood, about to pass by the old 51st Ward Party Headquarters where he had spent so much time as a youth. When he was a teenager, unable to get a summer job in Obama’s “summer of recovery,” his parents encouraged him to volunteer at the local party office. “It would be a learning experience,” Mr. and Mrs. Syerov had told him. And was it...
  • It’s True, Ted Cruz May Have Violated Election Law With Super PAC Ads

    Lawnewz ^ | 4:07 pm, April 6th, 2016 | Rachel Stockman
    After Ted Cruz‘s big win in Wisconsin, Donald Trump immediately went on the offensive, claiming that Cruz ‘illegally’ coordinated with a super PAC to produce damaging anti-Trump ads. Under FEC rules, candidates are not supposed to directly coordinate with super PACs which are allowed to raise unlimited funds from individuals, companies, and other groups. We did some digging into Trump’s claim, and found that he may, in fact, have a case. The rules around what it means to ‘coordinate’ are murky. LawNewz.com consulted with election law experts who agree that Cruz got himself into some gray area with at least...

    PJ Media ^ | June 4, 2015 | J. Christian Adams
    Loretta Lynch's DOJ looks to further federal control of elections in ways that benefit the Democrats. The Obama Justice Department has quietly launched an effort to erode traditional state powers over elections. In the first instance, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has drafted and sent a bill to Congress which would force state election officials to turn over power to tribal governments to determine the location and number of polling places on Indian reservations in state-run elections. In the second instance, the DOJ is seeking to erode the power of states to prohibit the mentally incompetent from voting, as long as...

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/9/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    There is no doubt that Tom Tillis, Karl Rove’s candidate in the North Carolina Senate race next month, was forced on us and many Tar Heel State conservatives deeply resent both of them. This is not an argument in favor of Tillis election, but rather an examination of the political rules both Tillis and the incumbent Democrat have to operate under. A few cycles ago North Carolina became the last Southern state to flip to Republican control. The rampant corruption of the last Democrat governor and many of her cohorts in the State’s Legislature caused a blow back that brought...

    Wisconsin Election Watch ^ | By Kyle Maichle
    MADISON – The Wisconsin Government Accountability Board (GAB) is urging voters to not use old voter registration forms in a press statement issued by the state’s elections authority on Tuesday. The reason for the advisory is because Governor Scott Walker signed into law new legislation that would require the proof of residency of a voter to be disclosed on the official form used for voter registration. Kevin Kennedy, the Director of the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board, said: “State law changed on April 4, and most voters who register must now provide proof of residence. The G.A.B. has revised the form...

    (CNSNews.com) - Although the tea party's influence is "undeniable," it is not inevitable -- and it must be crushed for the good of the nation, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) argued in a long political speech on Thursday. "They've won elections, stymied Democratic priorities and taken a sledgehammer to programs that are important to tens of millions of Americans," he complained. Among other recommendations, Schumer suggested an IRS crackdown on funding for tea party groups. "We have to look at electoral reform," he said. "Our very electoral structure has been rigged to favor tea party candidates in Republican primaries, even when...

    Her name is Pam Karlan. She has described herself as a “snarky, bisexual, Jewish woman.” She is a radical progressive. She is currently a law professor at Stanford, and a dishonest one at that. She will be joining Eric Holder’s Justice Department to oversee the enforcement of federal election laws during the 2014 midterm elections. PJ Media readers already know Pam Karlan as the professor who published dishonest scholarship about the Bush Justice Department’s voting rights enforcement.

    Before the 2000 presidential election, most Americans assumed the mechanics of elections functioned smoothly. The thirty-six day battle for the presidency demonstrated otherwise. Today, most Americans still assume the institutions, firms and foundations that fight about election law disputes are equally matched and similarly funded as between left and right. That is a dangerously incorrect assumption, especially with the 2012 election fast approaching. From an election administration perspective, the 2012 presidential election is already upon us. And the Left is fully engaged. Like so many other institutions, whether academia or the media, leftists dominate the field of election law, and...

    Today I recieved some news that is just, well vindication that the Truth shall set us free. After being publicly smeared as a campaign finance violator by the Delaware Republican Party simply for supporting Christine O'Donnell over Mike Castle. The FEC had previously reached a split decision on the matter but the investigative committee found no reason to believe that the O'Donnell campaign nor I had done anything wrong. Here is a link to the entire report and here is the excerpt that vindicates me. Finally, the complainant alleges that the O'Donnell Committee's press secretary stated on his Facebook page...

    The NAACP recently brought its 102nd annual convention to Los Angeles. The gathering touched on a variety of topics, but clearly one issue dominated the three-day affair: voter identification laws. Congresswoman Maxine Waters gave a speech telling the delegates that voter ID laws are "21st century poll taxes and literacy tests." Apparently unafraid of the race card charge, Waters unapologetically defended race-conscious policies and told the audience, "We cannot be worried that some people will say, 'Oh, they're playing the race card' ..." Benjamin Jealous, the NAACP's president, opened the convention by saying, "Our voting rights are under attack ..."...

    Americans take the integrity of our elections for granted. Every citizen has an equal right to vote, and every vote cast is counted. Rubbish. The voter rolls of this country are stuffed with illegal aliens, felons and dead people, who not only vote, they vote overwhelmingly Democrat. Citizens in uniform serving overseas, who might vote Republican, are routinely denied the right to vote when ballots are mailed "too late" to be returned in time to count. When a Republican wins a close race, uncounted ballots are "found" in the backseat of a Democrat poll worker's car. American elections are getting...

    Attorney Burt Odelson, a noted elction-law expert, is predicting Rahm Emanuel will be ineligible for mayor because he is not a legal resident of Chicago. Odelson told Roe and Roeper on WLS Radio that when Emanuel leased out his Chicago home he could no longer claim he is a resident. “He rented his house out in Sept 09 and has not been back since and has no residency in Chicago,” Odelson said. Odelson says he has been involved in several residency cases in Illinois that “the law is clear.”
