    Voter Fraud Claims Ruffle Feathers In New Mexico GOP Secretary of State Dianna Duran is taking fire from Democratic legislators and others who say she has overstated her case on illegal voting and object to her use of state police in the matter. Michael Haederle, Los Angeles Times July 31, 2011 Reporting from Albuquerque— Dianna Duran, New Mexico's secretary of State who took office in January, sounded a tad pugnacious in March when she reported that 117 foreign nationals with phony Social Security numbers had registered to vote and 37 had cast ballots in elections.

    While NAACP President Benjamin Jealous lashed out at new state laws requiring photo ID for voting, an NAACP executive sits in prison, sentenced for carrying out a massive voter fraud scheme. In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee. Sowers received a five-year prison term for each of the 10 counts, but Circuit Court Judge Charles Webster permitted Sowers to serve those terms...

I trust that Tom Perez and Attorney General Eric Holder are reviewing these laws very seriously. This almost certainly means that the DOJ Voting Section is...

McInerney, 47, is a former state Assembly worker who has been a Democratic committeeman in Troy for years. He was appointed to the clerk's position by the City Council when Democrats took control of the Troy council in January 2008.

Across the country the tsunami that flipped so many state legislatures is beginning to prove how profound our side’s version of “change” is and will be. Among the top priorities of the new Republican majorities in state Senates and Assemblies has been fixing the problem of Democrat voter fraud. The most obvious and easily accomplished remedy to cure this social cancer is a photo identification card for anyone...

The lawmakers wrote Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday to express concern that millions of voters do not have a government-issued ID - particularly older people, racial minorities, low-income voters and students. The senators say the photo ID requirements have the potential to block millions of eligible people from exercising their right to vote.

    WASHINGTON — In 2008, Barack Obama tapped into a record of nearly 15 million voters who cast ballots for the first time, a surge in registration that may be difficult to replicate next year. Recent voter registration data show that Democrats have lost ground in key states that Obama carried in 2008, an early warning siren for the president's re-election campaign. While Republican numbers have also dipped in some states, the drop in the Democrats' ranks highlights the importance of the Obama campaign's volunteer base and the challenge they could have of registering new voters.

The Assembly passed the bill by a vote of 60-35 and sent it on to the Senate, which is also controlled by Republicans. Democrats introduced more than 50 amendments, all of which failed. The measure was expected to further split the partisan divisions in the state after the recent bruising battle over newly elected Republican governor Scott Walker's successful campaign to weaken public sector union bargaining rights.

  • Rachel Maddow Claims Voter Registration's 'Impossible' in Kansas

    On Monday, Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback signed a new voter-identification law the requires photo identification of all in-person voters at every election, as well as requiring proof of citizenship for voter registration beginning on January 1, 2013. The state House passed the bill by a margin of 111 to 11. Naturally, liberals like Rachel Maddow think these simple rules are rigging the system. On Tuesday night's show, a very hyperbolic Maddow claimed "it's going to be almost impossible to get registered to vote now in Kansas." Her guest was Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the incoming chair of the Democratic Party, who...
  • Petitions stolen from Recall Dave Hansen (D) office?

    Allegedly, the burglars were after the petitions gathered to recall Dave Hansen, who was one of the Wisconsin Democratic senators who fled the state rather than participate in the democratic process. Which - if this was in fact done by Democratic party operatives or sympathizers - would merely demonstrate that Hansen is in fact fairly representative of his party, at that. The good news is that the recall folks say that they still have enough signatures, so it should have no insurmountable effect on the recall process, but you can expect that local Democrats will try to wring as much...

    Are Mickey Mouse and Mary Poppins registered to vote in Nevada? In a Las Vegas courtroom last week, prosecutors found the fictional characters not guilty but convicted those impersonating them of voter fraud. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the radical left-wing activist group, was convicted in a massive voter-fraud conspiracy. It has been committing identify theft for decades.

    We may soon learn about the priorities of the Voting Section of the Department of Justice. Fresh off the whitewash of the voter intimidation dismissal against the New Black Panther Party, the DOJ has received a request to monitor upcoming elections in Southbridge, Massachusetts. It seems the mounting possibility of voter intimidation may plague the upcoming municipal contest. The culprit? This billboard: Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. This billboard is part of a campaign encouraging Bay State citizens to voluntarily show photo identification even though the law does not require it. A Boston Globe story “Voter ID...

    Our young campaign volunteer learns more about vote fraud in Wisconsin.... “Hello, everybody! Hope you’re all hungry!” Pavel bounded into 51st Ward Democratic Party Headquarters with unusually high spirits, even for him. He waited until every eye in the room – Pockets, the Boss, the old ladies manning the phones along the wall – was upon him as he approached the snack table. With flourish, he pulled the three cardboard trays that he’d been carefully carrying – horizontally – out of their bag and set them all down. “Anybody have a sweet tooth? I brought Kringle!” Committeeman William Marcy –...

    By now everyone knows the race for State Supreme Court in Wisconsin is a virtual dead heat, with only 204 votes separating the two candidates out of the nearly 1.5 MILLION cast. The liberal Kloppenberg has already declared victory, even though the results have not been certified yet. The 204 vote difference is a number derived by the AP as results are reported throughout the state to the news organization. AP then compiles and announces the results. In the next few days, the 1830 municipal clerks in the state will certify the results of their polling places and the STATE...

    April 7, 2011 Don't talk about fraud! Fraud?! There is no fraud! Pay no attention to those... those... those... frauders! Ann Althouse Law prof Richard L. Hasen, author of the Election Law Blog, has a column in Politico: A recount in [the Wisconsin Supreme Court] race... seems inevitable, and it is not clear who will ultimately take the seat on the Wisconsin bench. But if this expensive and nasty race ends up in protracted litigation, it could undermine public confidence in both the judiciary and Wisconsin’s electoral process, especially if, as I expect, supporters of Prosser raise ugly allegations of...

    In the aftermath of close elections, allegations of fraud and manipulation almost always arise, especially when the election was fought as bitterly as the one in Wisconsin. The Daily Caller reports that accusations of both are already flying, but their report doesn’t offer too much in the way of actual evidence: Madison and Milwaukee conservative radio show host Vicki McKenna aired several concerns during her Wednesday show. She told TheDC she spent almost her entire two-hour show taking audience calls, in which listeners detailed what may be considered full-blown voter fraud.One caller, McKenna said, talked about a “missing box of...
  • Report: 500-600 Ballots "Found" in Wisconsin

    With challenger Joanne Kloppenburg up by exactly 204 votes in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, a new find could have tremendous impact. It is now being reported that 500-600 ballots were found in Waukesha County. More importantly for the election, Waukesha County went 73% for Incumbent David Prosser. If these ballots break the same way, by way of simple mathematics, this would be the result (assuming they found exactly 500 ballots): Prosser gains 365. Kloppenburg gains 135. That would be a difference of 230 votes, which would give Prosser a 26-vote lead. This could have massive implications. Currently, the totals...
