    Former minister Yossi Beilin revealed in a column published in the Israel Hayom daily on Sunday that the Egyptian army rigged the results of last year’s presidential elections, in which Islamist Mohammed Morsi was declared the winner. … The source who asked to remain anonymous told Beilin that former president Hosni Mubarak’s last prime minister, Ahmed Shafiq, won the race “by a narrow margin. But the army generals—wanting to ensure that law and order would be upheld following the elections—feared that if Morsi was defeated, the Muslim Brotherhood would refuse to recognize the results and would end up conducting themselves...

    "We must stop being the stupid party," Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal warned fellow Republicans recently. "It's time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults." Many Republicans apparently weren't listening, because they insist on doing stupid things. Exhibit A: lawmakers in a half-dozen states who are trying to alter the Electoral College system to give Republicans more votes. This is a desperate and ultimately self-defeating reaction to the changing demographics of America. The GOP calculus seems to be: We can never appeal to minorities, and we cannot win the presidency without them, so let's rig the system to reduce...

    In post-election analyses, the 11-point drop in the president's support among 18- to 29-year-olds indicates that particular voting bloc is falling away from Barack Obama on major issues. ------- One polling trend that isn't going in Barack Obama's favor after the presidential election is the drop in his support among young voters. Even though it might not be as unbelievable as winning 100 percent of the vote in 59 Philadelphia precincts ─ and nine Cleveland precincts ─ an 11-point swing in support away from Obama is lifting some eyebrows on both sides of the political spectrum ... particularly because that...

    California’s top election official on Friday decertified three voting systems widely used in the state but said she would let counties use the machines in February’s presidential primary if extra security precautions were taken. The official, Debra Bowen, the secretary of state, said she made the decision in response to studies showing that the machines could be hacked.

    CLEVELAND -- Two election workers were convicted Wednesday of rigging a recount of the 2004 presidential election to avoid a more thorough review in Ohio's most populous county. Jacqueline Maiden, elections coordinator of the Cuyahoga County Elections Board, and ballot manager Kathleen Dreamer each were convicted of a felony count of negligent misconduct of an elections employee. They also were convicted of one misdemeanor count each of failure of elections employees to perform their duty. Prosecutors accused Maiden and Dreamer of secretly reviewing preselected ballots before a public recount on Dec. 16, 2004. They worked behind closed doors for three...

    SmartMetric Inc., manufacturer and marketer of tamper-proof identity cards, says it has the solution to yesterday's story that reported possible voting fraud due to the mysterious disappearance of 12 voter smart cards in Shelby County, Tennessee. The cards, used to activate electronic voting machines, were reported missing at Bishop Byrne High School, a Memphis, Tennessee polling place. Local authorities expressed concern that someone in possession of a smartcard could use 'off the shelf equipment' [equipment that reprograms the card] and alter it, enabling it to be used multiple times to cast multiple votes. SmartMetric says its card includes a fingerprint...

  • Did Bush really win Wisconsin? Possible voter fraud identified in Milwaukee

    We're all completely familiar by now with the pretty rock-solid indications that the Democrats stole the Washington governors race - and now that we're getting proof of the rather large Democratic efforts at voter fraud, I think it is high time we started to look everywhere - and some people have started to take a look at Wisconsin. Stranded on Blue Islands gives us the whole scoop about the Wisconsin vote but I'll just note three things: 1. You can register to vote on election day in Wisconsin. 2. In Miwaukee alone, 10,000 votes cannot be verified - ie, they...

    Gregoire ‘Jumps the Shark’ * Now claims she has nothing to do with lawsuit Bellevue, WA – Christine Gregoire had nothing to do with an Attorney General opinion opposing the inclusion of previously rejected ballots into a hand recount. Nor does she have anything to do with a lawsuit filed by the Democratic Party regarding the hand recount in the governor’s race. At least, that’s what Christine Gregoire says. This week Gregoire, who has been Attorney General for 12 years, claimed she had no knowledge of long-standing Attorney General advice that in a manual recount, rejected ballots cannot be introduced...

    Okay, below is latest the Rossi campaign press release: Gregoire & the memo: Attorney General claims ignorance Bellevue, WA – Christine Gregoire is trying to shrug off responsibility for a 1996 memo that puts her own Attorney General’s office at odds with her efforts now to change the rules of the recount in the governor’s race. Yesterday, a November 1996 memo from then-Secretary of State Ralph Munro regarding a manual recount in a state legislative race was made public. It included the following statement: “Challenge of Ballots Not Allowed. We are advised by the Attorney General that state law makes...

    The leader of the Democratic National Committee announced Monday that he will start an investigation into voting irregularities in Ohio, where lines snaked outside some inner-city polling places on election day and provisional ballots were sometimes in short supply. Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the DNC, said the aim of "this comprehensive study is not to contest the results of the 2004 election, but to help ensure that every eligible vote cast is truly counted." McAuliffe made his announcement on the same day that Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell certified the state's final presidential election results, declaring President Bush...

    Belgium's highest court has ruled that the country's Flemish nationalist party, the Vlaams Blok, is racist. The decision means that Europe's most successful far-right party will be forced to disband - and re-form under a new name. The ruling - confirming an appeals court judgment that the party was guilty of racism and discrimination - means that the Vlaams Blok can no longer benefit from state financing, while anyone who continues to work for it will henceforth be committing an offence. A quarter of voters in Flanders, the Dutch-speaking northern half of Belgium, support its policies - independence from Belgium...

    -snip- Right-Wing Party Declared Illegal in Belgium [John Derbyshire] In a nasty little example of what the Left would like to do to anyone that refuses to toe the PC line, a Belgian court has just ruled Vlaams Blok "racist," effectively making the party illegal. Vlaams Blok is the most popular party in Flanders (the Flemish-speaking part of Belgium). Last June they got almost a quarter of the votes in regional elections. The Belgian establishment hates them, however, since they have at various times advocated (a) the secession of Flanders from Belgium, (b) the repatriation of non-European immigrants. The lights...

    Just heard this bit news on WTMJ 620 AM about the kerry rally in Madison, WI. There is no print version to reference, so for right now you'll just have to trust what I heard. First, a little background: Kerry appeared in a big rally in Madison, Wisconsin yesterday. This itself is odd because Madison is known as the Berkeley of the midwest. It's an area Kerry should have sewn up by now. They brought in Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters / Nirvana) to draw the crowds. They even brought in busloads of people from Iowa and Minnesota....

    Clinton's Junk Food Diet Concerned Hillary Former President Had Quadruple Bypass Surgery In September Oct 29, 2004 11:36 am US/Eastern NEW YORK (AP) Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said she worried that former President Clinton's low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet was unhealthy before he was diagnosed with heart disease, but that he brushed off her concerns. "I didn't think it was healthy, but I know so many people who are doing that now. I'd say, 'You really think you should have a cheeseburger every day for lunch?"' she said in an interview broadcast Friday on ABC News' "Good Morning America." The former president...

    Students at Piper High are getting a crash course in politics after student government elections problems erupted amid complaints of racism, election rigging, physical threats and improper campaigning. The controversy started when administrators changed election criteria to encourage more students to get involved with student government. Although almost half of Piper students are black, only a handful of the members of student government are. Unfortunately, it's upset some people," Tom Geismar, superintendent for north central area schools, said of the changes. "But it's also opened up the process to some other students." The move was perceived by some of the...

    This is funny. Angelo Genova, the lawyer arguing on behalf of the DEMS, is now suggesting, at the Woman Supreme court justices urging that color coded ballots could now be used so that absentee voters could tell the "revised ballot" from the original one. They really are making it up. One of the justices was obviously sympathetic and led Angelo through the idea that the "over-riding principle" of the election law is to enfranchise as many people as possible. Angelo says: statue is neutral as to the cause of the abscence. Angelo says: the interest in having voter participation in...
