  • Jeff Davis: Debunking Mark Ritchie's voter ID claims

    St. Paul Pioneer Press ^ | 9/26/12 | Jeff Davis
    Secretary of State Mark Ritchie was a vocal opponent of the Voter ID bill throughout the legislative session. But once the Legislature passed the Voter ID amendment and put it on the ballot, he had an obligation to cease his resistance to the measure. As our chief elections official, Ritchie will be responsible for tallying the ballots on the Voter ID amendment this November. His continued advocacy against Voter ID undermines the credibility of his office. Ritchie has gone beyond simply campaigning against Voter ID. He is now actively seeking to dupe voters into voting against Voter ID using false...

    (VIDEO AT LINK) The Congressional Black Caucus used National Voter Registration Day to launch a new voter protection initiative. On Tuesday members of the CBC partnered with community leaders as well as local and state elected officials in a series of events throughout the country to unveil “For the People“. The initiative draws attention to voter suppression efforts, like restrictive voter ID laws, that could prevent many minorities from voting in November. The goal of “For the People” is to provide information on what documents and procedures are needed to vote so that no eligible voter is turned away from...

    CNS News: If blacks don't vote, 'snatch' the 'color back,' says CleaverBy: Devonia Smith September 22, 2012 Friday, CNS News surfaced a C-SPAN video of Chairman Emanuel Cleaver of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) passionately demanding that African-Americans who don't vote, "ought to give us their color back." The video was taped the evening before when Cleaver was speaking to a CBC forum on the subject of voting rights. There was no laughter from the audience when Cleaver angrily declared, "They (blacks) aren't worth the color if they don't vote; they ought to give us their color back." Apparently, that...

    Pennsylvania's biggest voter-rights case in recent history ground forward in Commonwealth Court today over the minutia of how identification cards get issued in PennDOT offices around the state. Judge Robert Simpson must decide whether implementation of the controversial law requiring all voters to produce a photo ID at their polling place this fall is proceeding smoothly enough to guarantee that no one who wants to vote this fall is blocked from doing so. .... "We are in the business of issuing people IDs, not denying people IDs," Myers said as testimony began, noting PennDOT has issued about 10,800 cards to...

    Federal investigators were able to get fraudulent driver’s licenses in all three states where they tried, according to a report released Friday that shows continued problems with states’ ID programs more than 11 years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks highlighted the problem. States are particularly flummoxed by out-of-state documents, according to investigators from the Government Accountability Office who conducted the audit. The investigators used forged birth certificates purportedly issued by Ohio and New York, and successfully submitted them in three other states. “In most of these five attempts across the three states, we were issued permanent or temporary licenses...

    DES MOINES, Iowa – Three people were charged with felony counts of voter fraud in Pottawattamie County Thursday as a result of an Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation probe initiated last month in conjunction with the Iowa Secretary of State’s Office. Class D first-degree election misconduct charges were brought against Albert Harte-Maxwell, 52; Linda Harte-Maxwell, 49; and Maria Ayon-Fernandez, 40, all of Council Bluffs. All three individuals were booked into the Pottawattamie County Jail on Thursday and released on their own recognizance, according to a DCI statement. The investigation was conducted by the DCI and Pottawattamie County Attorney’s Office. According...

    Graphic by Rick Dunham/Houston Chronicle Federal judges may be messing with Voter ID laws in Texas and Pennsylvania, but a new poll finds that the laws have strong support among voters. Seven in ten registered voters give photo ID requirements at the polls a thumbs up, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll conducted between Sept. 8 and 12. Only 28 percent oppose the concept and just 2 percent are unsure. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down voter ID requirement if a lower Commonwealth Court judge finds it’s difficult for all voters to obtain the proper...

    A recent poll by the Inquirer Pennsylvania regarding the state's controversial voter ID law shows that nearly two-thirds of likely voters support requiring those who show up to vote to produce a government issued photo. But perhaps the most revealing data from the poll is the deep division between the major political parties on the issue. For example, 85 percent of Republicans polled support the law versus only 51 percent of Democrats surveyed. Broken down between races, 69 percent of white voters support the measure while only 31 percent of black voters think producing a photo ID is a good...

    Last month one of the strongest opponents of Voter ID in the Massachusetts State Legislature, David Torissi (D) North Andover, was defeated by a conservative, Pro Voter-ID opponent named Diana DiZoglio … who is also … a Democrat! Democrats? In favor of Voter ID? Who could have thought? We did. For years we have reported that approximately 70% of all voters support Voter ID… and that includes Democrats. And for years we have been warning local officials who are Democrats that a tidal wave was coming on this issue. Now an incumbent State Rep., once thought unbeatable, has fallen to...

    Madison - The state's chief elections official said Wednesday that he does not want the Wisconsin Supreme Court to rule before the Nov. 6 presidential election on two cases that have blocked the state's voter ID law. If the high court were to reinstate the law in the next eight weeks, people who do not have appropriate IDs may have to scramble to get them, said Kevin Kennedy, director of the state Government Accountability Board. Additionally, his agency would have to rush to train clerks and poll workers on what IDs could be used for voting. "There's not enough time,"...

    A district court judge says Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz cannot move forward with new rules that would challenge voters appearing on databases as noncitizens. Judge Mary Pat Gunderson issued a ruling Friday blocking Schultz from implementing voting rules he established without holding a public hearing. Schultz created the new rules in July, using an administrative emergency rulemaking process. He says he needed to act quickly before the November election because noncitizens might be registered to vote. Both Sides of Lawsuit React Here is the news release issued by Secretary of State Matt Schultz: Secretary of State Matt Schultz...

    For those of you who live in Pennsylvania,can any of you decipher why the left has been so adamant over the voter ID requirements if it looks like Obama has already won the state? How come the left isn't demanding voter ID in Maryland,California and Vermont? Why Pennsylvania? Is the left learning through internal polling that Romney has an 8/9/10 point lead? Maybe it's because Pennsylvania is about 80% White. And according to most polls,at least 60% of the white vote is definitely voting for Romney?For all we know,Pennsylvania could be the the "Surprise Romney Win"!

    After George W. Bush defeated Al Gore at the ballot box and in a rare show of fortitude for a Republican, didn't stand by haplessly wringing his hands when Gore tried to lawyer his way into the White House, liberals were outraged. Sure, Gore had never been ahead at any point, but OBVIOUSLY voter fraud had cost Democrats the election. Afterwards, Democrats DEMANDED that we do more to insure the integrity of our elections. Republicans agreed and for a while, we finally had an issue where there was genuine bipartisan agreement. Then came the 2004 elections and many of the...

    Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008. It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28.

    A Mississippi NAACP executive is in jail after being convicted of voter fraud for fraudulently casting absentee ballots, including for four dead people. Lessadolla Sowers, who is a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee, was convicted and sentenced in April for what a judge said were crimes that cut “against the fabric of our free society.” She was given a five-year sentence for each of the ten counts of voter fraud for which she was convicted, but the sentencing judge allowed her to serve the terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times.

    The intellectual bankruptcy of vote-fraud defenders knows no bounds. They have absolutely no rational argument against common-sense voter ID laws, so theyÂ’re forced to concoct increasingly tortured, emotional arguments, in which the notion of asking a voter to show the same kind of ID for voting that he routinely presents for the purchase of alcoholic beverages is magnified, through the magic of shrill hysteria, into an act of brutal Klan-style racism. A very long-winded example of this nonsense ran in the New York Times last Friday, penned by David Blight. Blight thinks we have to put up with unlimited voter...

Lopez-Munguia faces a maximum term of 28 years in federal prison, followed by deportation. He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 19 in San Diego. In 1986,...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A Democratic state legislator from east Arkansas, his father and two campaign workers pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to commit election fraud after federal prosecutors said they bribed absentee voters and destroyed ballots in a special election last year. Prosecutors said Democratic Rep. Hudson Hallum of Marion, Kent Hallum, Phillip Wayne Carter and Sam Malone acknowledged that they participated in a conspiracy to bribe voters to influence absentee votes in the Arkansas District 54 primary, runoff and general elections in 2011. The three were released pending a sentencing hearing. "In a nation in which every...
