"Without voter ID, Democratic voters across this country could be voting four times, five times, 10 times each."
And they ARE--and when they do, they are applauded; warmly embraced; and glorified by the Democratic Party establishment. Plus it looks like they get PAID for it, too:
@Sebe. I know you are smart. Everyone here knows that. But I think someone hacked your Blog account and I think I know who did it. Tot!
Dead people voting 4-5 times... Yall are on to us. WE HAVE the ZOMBIE vote.
WE knew we'd get caught on this one...
Yes you have. Horace Cooper said it best in his article I linked to in another blog which you obviously chose to ignore:
"Voter scams and scandals are notorious in Chicago and across much of Illinois, including....fake registrations with made-up names; "ghost" voting by the dearly departed....and ineligible felons and illegal aliens casting illegal ballots. And Chicago's problem isn't just distant history.
The Illinois Attorney General's Office recently prosecuted and convicted two Cook County election workers for election fraud for violating voter privacy by "supervising" voters as they completed ballots. In 2002, dozens of Chicago's senior citizens applied for absentee ballots, only to discover that the man who was helping them to apply had already filled in the ballots. As the Chicago Sun-Times reported, when the seniors asked him what he was doing, he answered: "Don't worry, you're voting Democratic."2
Then there's Chicago's interstate rival, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Milwaukee Police Department was directed to investigate voter fraud that occurred during the 2004 presidential election. In 2008, the MPD task force issued a troubling and extensive report.
According to the study, 16 workers from the John Kerry campaign committed felonies that went unprosecuted by Wisconsin authorities. The task force identified a single property where 128 different people were registered to vote, and each one was signed up for the 2004 election. The report cited cases of double-voting, "ghost" voting by dead people, and uncounted absentee ballots that were discovered only after the election was over and the winner declared. The task force questioned the voter registration practices of a number of homeless shelters, and found homeless individuals registered in multiple locations. With no photo ID required to vote in Wisconsin at the time, anyone could have cast multiple ballots simply by knowing the homeless man's name. As the MPD investigation observed, "vote portability and the abject poverty that defines homelessness, make these unfortunate individuals vulnerable to become the tools of voter fraud by those who would exploit the homeless."3
And let's not forget Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where, during the 2008 presidential election, the New Black Panthers were famously permitted to stand guard in front of the city's precinct polling locations, armed with nightsticks. That was the same election year that CNN reported that 1,500 of Philadelphia's ballots were sent to the U.S. Attorney's Office to be investigated, with another 8,000 considered "suspect." Then, in 2010, Fox News reported that Bucks County was investigating 500 allegedly fraudulent ballots involving a door-to-door canvassing scheme and forged absentee ballot signatures. And we can add to the list reports of voters receiving letters from the Pennsylvania Voters Assistance Office – an office that doesn't exist.
The reason the Democrats don't want vigorous anti-voter fraud measures is that they get a lot of their votes from cheating. That's the only answer that makes sense. If they were HONEST and cared about the integrity of the system, they wouldn't be fighting the problem. The small number of people who "can't get" a free voter ID card could be taken care of by the same Democrat "get out the vote" machine that finagles to cheat. After all, they have no problem getting everybody free cell phones and getting them on food stamps. Why can't they act like they are real stakeholders in an honest election system? It's because they are MAJOR beneficiaries of a corrupt system, that's why. There's no other answer that passes the stink check and the straight-fact test.
At the risk of appearing to lend any form of legitimacy to a bitter old man on psychotropic medication I will offer up these words:
As a result of the 2000 POTUS election which the Republicans "won" even while losing the National Popular Vote, we DEMS, even on a slow learning curve will soon learn how to STEAL ENTIRE STATES as Republican Sec. Of State, Katherine Harris of Florida did in 2000.
Republicans stole a WHOLE STATE!!!
Now THAT fellow bloggers is vote stealing by nullification on a Grand Scale. That action ain't misdemeanor type "shoplifting" votes, 1-2-3-4-5...at a time, what Republicans did in Florida in 2000, that particular theft set the benchmark for voter tampering. All done by cheating Republicans on a highly felonious level. Hence called: THE BIG CHEAT.
Not THAT'S Stealing. It ain't knockin over some a bunch of likker stores, no, that's not even Grand Theft Auto. What it amounts to in terms of 'cheating\stealing' is knocking over Fort Knox, taking all the Gold, And getting away with it! Your thieves Escaped Justice. Yall seem to catch our evil doers on an incrementally small by comparison basis and "document" it for posterity. Our brothers and sisters go to jail. Yall's thieves have lunch in the Oval Office.
Republicans, like Drug Cartels, understand that the big prize is in VOLUME CHEATING not just making street corner deals.
I just looked at my watch...it's time for your medication Tot.
And Tot, you got to admit it... I have not lied to you yet. I told you how to cut and paste (talk about the road to hell being paved with good intentions), I told you how to send mail here.
Swallow the meds a half hour before bedtime. Trust me on this.
We need honest elections - period. We have the technology to ensure that only legal votes are cast. This can be done easily if our government and our political parties stop fighting the problem. If the Democrats can exponentially increase the food stamp rolls and expand the welfare state to heretofore unseen levels, THEY CAN HELP TO ENSURE THAT OUR ELECTIONS ARE HONEST AND FAIR.
There was more election fraud in Pennsylvania in 2012 then there ever was in Florida in 2000. (See my voter ID blog for details.) But the solution is not to make excuses, it is to FIX THE PROBLEM. Every legal citizen can EASILY be provided with adequate voter ID which will go a long way toward solving that part of the voter fraud problem. The Dems don't want it because they benefit MOST from illegal votes. It's as simple as that.
They should not be allowed to get away with it.
