    OLYMPIA, Wash. — Prosecutors in King County are looking at possible criminal charges related to a voter-registration drive held in 2006, echoing the suspicions of impropriety raised during the razor-close gubernatorial election of 2004. King County's acting prosecutor, Dan Satterberg, is reviewing 1,829 questioned voter-registration forms turned in last year by people working for the national activist group ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. A decision on whether to file criminal charges is expected in late July, Satterberg's spokesman, Dan Donohoe, said Friday. "We're dealing with possible criminal charges with regard to fraudulent registrations. No one...

    The following are news stories involving potential voting irregularities around the nation. Headlines are changed only to provide more or clearer information. When multiple stories about the same incident appear, I try to post the later ones, supposing the information may be more up-to-date. I make no judgments about the credibility of the accusations, as I consider wolf cries to be newsworthy and I also make no claim to expertise in evaluating credibility of events in distant states. Judge issues injunctions against Democrats for vote-buying; accusations would be of felonies. -- http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1734244/posts Pennsylvania voter (union thug) smashes vote machine --...

    OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Gov. Chris Gregoire sent an invoice of nearly $50 million to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales Monday, saying the federal government needs to reimburse the state for the cost of housing criminal illegal immigrants. Gregoire said that even though it's the federal government's responsibility to incarcerate illegal immigrants who have committed crimes, the state has been doing it for years. From July 2004 to June 2005, Gregoire said the state paid more than $27 million to house 995 prisoners. The Department of Justice has only reimbursed the state $1.7 million, and still owes $25.3 million. She's seeking an...

    Go to the polls on Election Day? So 20th century. A bill in the state Legislature would allow seven counties to forego that tradition and conduct elections by mail only for five years, beginning in 2006. Santa Cruz County could be one of them. County Clerk Gail Pellerin said she is interested in the county participating in such a pilot program if the bill does pass. "Mail-ballot elections tend to cost less and increase turnout," Pellerin said. "It is definitely a concept worth exploring." The bill would need to be signed into law and the county Board of Supervisors would...
  • How to cure voter fraud

    Fraudulent voting is a cancer eating away at Lady Liberty. The White House and Congress should cure it — now. Last week’s Musings — done I must admit over a Manhattan instead of a martini, but at least the alliteration was preserved — described Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s proposed redistricting reform as trumping all of his other proposals in importance because whether the other initiatives rise or fall, fair district lines make possible, and with time even likely, the election of a GOP majority or near majority that could then attend to any remaining issues. Without redistricting reform, an endless string...

    King County election workers counted as many as 660 provisional ballots in the governor's election before the eligibility of those voters was checked, Elections Director Dean Logan said yesterday. Logan promised better control over provisional votes in future elections and said new safeguards tested in a small local-levy election Feb. 8 worked without a hitch. "It's an area where we have to do better and we will do better," Logan said during his second appearance before the Metropolitan King County Council to answer questions about the Nov. 2 election. Sitting beside County Executive Ron Sims' chief of staff, Kurt Triplett,...

    Nonaresa Montgomery was found guilty by a jury late today of perjury in a trial in St. Louis Circuit Court in the St. Louis vote fraud trial. She was found not guilty of evidence tampering.

The judge added conditions that included community service work in which she would help young people understand how to properly register to vote... ...

    King County Executive Ron Sims has come out swinging at critics who have called the county's management of the contested gubernatorial election either incompetent or corrupt. In his first news conference on problems with the Nov. 2 election, Sims yesterday said he will ask the County Council for money to create a "state-of-the-art" election facility and to improve worker training. Sims defended Elections Director Dean Logan and said he was convinced the county "conducted the most accurate count humanly possible with the systems we have today. ... "I am deeply disappointed that so many have sought to take political advantage...
