Soros Funded Group Seeks to Control State Election Posts

Posted by iusbvision on June 25, 2011

George Soros

Washington Times:

A small tax-exempt political group with ties to wealthy liberals like billionaire financier George Soros has quietly helped elect 11 reform-minded progressive Democrats as secretaries of state to oversee the election process in battleground states and keep Republican “political operatives from deciding who can vote and how those votes are counted.”

Known as the Secretary of State Project (SOSP), the organization was formed by liberal activists in 2006 to put Democrats in charge of state election offices, where key decisions often are made in close races on which ballots are counted and which are not.

Pay attention to this part:

Named after Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code, so-called 527 political groups — such as SOSP — have no upper limit on contributions and no restrictions on who may contribute in seeking to influence the selection, nomination, election, appointment or defeat of candidates to federal, state or local public office. They generally are not regulated by the Federal Election Commission (FEC), creating a soft-money loophole.

While FEC regulations limit individual donations to a maximum of $2,500 per candidate and $5,000 to a PAC, a number of 527 groups have poured tens of millions of unregulated dollars into various political efforts.

SOSP has backed 11 winning candidates in 18 races, including such key states as Ohio, Nevada, Iowa, New Mexico and Minnesota.



This is where illegal and foreign money and foreign governments influence our elections. The excuse the Soros funded group uses is that it claims Republicans stole the 200 presidential election on Florida. Of course when a group of newspapers went to Florida and recounted themselves they also concluded that president Bush had won fairly.

But let me tell you what wasn’t fair. It wasn’t fair when Al Gore’s lawyers used a technicality to toss out military ballots in Florida. There were valid reasons why the Supreme Court ruled for President Bush in the Bush v. Gore lawsuits: the Florida Supreme Court was allowing Democrats to change the election rules on the fly during the count; and Gore’s lawyers and a partisan Florida Court wanted to allow selective recounting of discarded votes, meaning that only in areas where Gore had a substantial lead would the votes be recounted. President Bush’s team said that if there was going to be a recount it had to be all of the state and under one set of rules – and on that part of Bush v. Gore the Supreme Court agreed 7-2.

Of course Soros’ group has already stolen elections in Minnesota. USA Today, among others, report that Al Franken won his Senate seat through fraud.

Justice Department whistle blower J. Christian Adams went public after the Justice Department dismantled the integrity division of the section in charge of making sure that “Motor Voter” was enforced properly and that dead people were removed from the voter roles. The Obama Justice Department has made it clear that they will not take action in vote intimidation cases if the victims are white and/or the perpetrators are black.



J. Christian Adams via Ed Morrissey:

How The Department of Justice Allowed Vote Fraud in Minnesota

Former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams has blown the whistle on politicization within Justice in enforcing election laws, specifically the laws requiring cleaning voter rolls of the deceased and convicted felons. While the main focus of the media (such as it is) has been on the politics of the issue, Adams wants to get more of a focus on the consequences of politicization. He talks with Twin Cities talk-show host Chris Baker about the impact of this politicization in Minnesota, a subject that Minnesota Majority knows all too well. The conservative organization has spent the past 20 months attempting to get the attention of the DoJ on this very subject, to no avail:

Minnesota Majority has experienced the DOJ’s refusal to investigate these kind of cases first-hand. On November 17th of 2008 (immediately following the 2008 General Election and while the Coleman-Franken recount battle was getting underway), Minnesota Majority president Jeff Davis sent a certified letter to then Voting Section chief of the Civil Rights Division at the DOJ, Christopher Coates, requesting an investigation into apparent failures to comply with HAVA by Secretary of State Mark Ritchie. No response was forthcoming.

Since the DOJ in Washington DC failed to follow up on Davis’ complaint, Minnesota Majority contacted the local FBI office and lodged the same complaint. Special Agent Brian Kinney responded and visited the Minnesota Majority office to examine Minnesota Majority’s findings. At that time, he said, “based on what I see here there is more than enough evidence to initiate an internal complaint.” He gave his assurances that he would bring the matter to the attention of his supervisors. There was no further follow-up.

By October of 2009, Minnesota Majority had compiled evidence of further violations of HAVA in Minnesota, including a finding that ineligible felons were not being detected and flagged for challenge or removal from the voter rolls. This resulted in hundreds of fraudulent votes by ineligible felons being counted in Minnesota’s 2008 election. Davis sent another certified letter to Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates. Like the first complaint from nearly a year prior, the second letter went unanswered.

Minnesota Majority’s experience supports J. Christopher Adams’ claims that the DOJ’s policy is not to pursue violations of HAVA’s anti-fraud provisions. The dismissal of the voter intimidation charges against members of the New Black Panther Party who brandished nightsticks outside a Philadelphia polling place during the 2008 General Election was the last straw for Adams, who resigned in protest. He claimed that his superiors also ordered himself and other attorneys not to comply with subpoenas issued by the US Civil Rights commission, placing them in what Adams called, “legal limbo.”

Voting Section Chief Christopher Coates, who worked with Adams on the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case was demoted and transferred to a post in South Carolina earlier this year.

The Civil Rights Commission has subpoenaed Coates to testify on the matter but his DOJ employers are currently blocking his testimony.

Why would the DoJ block testimony from one of its attorneys on the internal policies of Justice?

ACORN supervisor convicted for election fraud

Posted by iusbvision on December 17, 2010

May there be more to come.

Examiner:

A supervisor for the now defunct political advocacy group the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, has entered into a plea bargain with prosecutors in a case alleging that canvassers were illegally paid to register Nevada voters during the 2008 presidential campaign.

Amy Busefink, 28, pleaded no-contest in state court to two misdemeanor counts of conspiracy to commit the crime of compensation for registration of voters. Her nolo contendere plea acknowledged the state had sufficient evidence for a conviction if the case went to trial.

Busefink is expected to get a slap on the wrist, according to critics of ACORN, with only one year of probation, a $1,000 fine and 100 hours of community service probable.

Last month, House Republican Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri applauded reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had opened a criminal investigation into whether the left-wing advocacy group ACORN has violated federal election law by fostering and promoting a national program of voter registration fraud.

The Associated Press reported at the time that “the FBI is actively pursuing leads in the investigation of ACORN. Word of the investigation comes less than a week after Blunt joined Reps. Candice Miller (R-Mich.), Vernon Ehlers (R-Mich.), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), Tom Cole (R-Okla.), and Lamar Smith (R-Texas) in sending a letter to the Department of Justice urging it to act.”

Blunt, a former secretary of state in Missouri, joined other House leaders in urging the Bureau to “take all active and appropriate measures” to ensure the civil rights of legitimate voting Americans aren’t diluted by systemic voter fraud.

Top Ten Most Gerrymandered Congressional Districts in the United States

Posted by iusbvision on December 17, 2010

Pajamas Media has a fabulous post about the 10 most gerrymandered districts in the country. For those of you who do not know what gerrymandering is, it is the drawing of districts in long snake like scribbles in order to generate a politically motivated outcome.

Here in Indiana, the Democrats twisted out a portion of Elkhart county like a long snake for the express purpose of drawing our Congressman Chris Chocola out of the district.

Go HERE to see the material and wow is it educational. It goes to show just how far government will go to manipulate and thwart the votes of some to amplify the votes of others.

Students with “Organizing for America” caught in vote fraud scam

Posted by iusbvision on November 12, 2010

“Organizing for America” takes you to BarackObama.com and is the White Houses “grass roots” political arm.

The “organizers” flooded the voting place with people who were not registered to vote there while students working with “Organizing for America” would “vouch for them that they lived at the address they said, of course if you voted somewhere else like back home this would be illegal. The Organizing for America students admitted that they vouched for people they did not know to vote, which is of course illegal.

Alaska Division of Elections flagrantly violating Alaska law in Miller/Murkowski ballot count?

Posted by iusbvision on November 7, 2010

Joe Miller:

Division of Elections Fails to Notify Miller Campaign of Absentee Ballot Validation

Anchorage, Alaska. November 6, 2010 — The Joe Miller for U.S. Senate Campaign is concerned that the Absentee Ballot validation process began yesterday at 10 a.m without notification to the campaign. The Miller Campaign was told of the news from a Republican Party member approximately 11am yesterday who was informed of the decision that morning. In an e-mail to the Miller campaign, the Director of the Division of Elections, Gail Fenumiai, stated, “It is not the practice of the division to contact candidates or parties to notify them of the review dates,” even though the DOE’s “Election Observers’ Handbook” [version B14 (Rev 11/07), page 8] provides that the Division must “notify” the campaign “24 hours in advance the time of ballot review….”

[IUSB Vision Editor’s Note – This is preposterous,  of course it is the policy to contact the candidates, they have a right to inspect the process and that IS the whole point of having judges and inspectors from both parties to observe the count. Anyone who has worked elections before knows that any such policy would be so fabulously ridiculous that it is impossible. To claim that they have a policy that directly contradicts the published rules and goes against there very notion of having all parties involved to observe, which every state sets up a process to accomplish, is beyond unbelievable. I am calling out Gail Fenumiai as a liar as her statement is equal to saying that the state can hold a recount and not tell a candidate that it is happening. It cannot be understated how outrageous this is. – Chuck Norton]

In response to this news, Joe Miller said, “Our goal is to uphold the integrity of the voting process. Every vote that is cast correctly should be counted. All Alaskans deserve a free, open and fair election. Unfortunately, the State Division of Elections has decided to call that process into question with the constant maneuvering of dates and procedures.” Since the election Tuesday, the Miller Campaign has vowed to oversee the process to its conclusion, to ensure that the voters of Alaska have their rights protected.

Miller went on to say, “The State of Alaska has a statutorily defined election process, anything or anyone that deviates from that process is unsettling. It is fundamental that the public be informed of the ballot review schedule in advance. Our democratic voting process has at its foundation the Constitution and the statutes of this state, and any manipulation of this process for the purposes of expediency or convenience compromises those principles.”

Spokesman Randy DeSoto added that “we don’t know how many ballots were reviewed without fair scrutiny.”

The absentee validation is occurring across the state in various locations. It is unclear why the Miller Campaign was not notified about the decision to begin validation Friday.

Democrats Trying to Steal Renee Ellmers Congressional Win with the Old “Ballots found in a box” Trick – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on November 5, 2010

DONATE NOW! – http://www.reneeforcongress.com/landing-pages/help-our-recount-effort

Democrats “found” votes after the election was over. This is the same kind of fraud that Al Franken used to steal the election. Renee Ellmers is a Tea Party candidate who won fair & square while the NRCC told her that they would not help her in her campaign and now wont support her in the recount. I am beseeching all of my political friends to open your wallets and help her now as this is her most desperate hour! Ellmers needs money for lawyers to monitor the recount and stop this fraud.

Her opponent is Bob Etheridge, who became infamous when he assaulted a student who asked him an inconvenient question.

UPDATE – GOP Chairman Michael Steele is stepping up to help. This web site has always supported Chairman Steele through all of the unfair attacks from the GOP establishment and the elite media, we are gratified that our support was not misplaced.

UPDATE II – Renee needs $230,000 to monitor the recount to help insure that she isn’t ripped off. The NRCC sent $5,000 after Rush Limbaugh went off on them today.

Palin Blasts Lisa Murkowski for Using Special Interest Financed Lawyers to Intimidate Radio Station Into Silence

Posted by iusbvision on October 30, 2010

Lisa Murkowski is evil. Only a truly evil person would abuse our legal system like this. I suspect that the recoil from this evil act can hurt Murkowski.

Sarah Palin:

Lisa, are you going to shut down my Facebook page for writing this?

Yesterday, Lisa Murkowski’s hired guns threatened radio host Dan Fagan, and more importantly, the station that airs Fagan’s show, with legal action for allegedly illegal “electioneering.” The station, unlike Murkowski, who is flush with millions of dollars from vested corporate interests, does not have a budget for a legal defense. So it did what any small market station would do when threatened by Beltway lawyers charging $500 to $1000 an hour – they pulled Dan Fagan off the air.

Does all this sound heavy handed? It is. It is an interference with Dan Fagan’s constitutional right to free speech. It is also a shocking indictment against Lisa Murkowski. How low will she go to hold onto power? First, she gets the Division of Elections to change its write-in process – a process that Judge Pfiffner correctly determined had been in place without change for 50 years. She is accepting financial support from federal contractors, an act that is highly questionable and now pending before the FEC. And today, she played her last card. She made it clear that if you disagree with her and encourage others to exercise their civic rights, she’ll take you off the air.

The concept of “electioneering” involves several issues, but typically refers to campaigning at the polls, which is appropriately banned. Under federal law, it can also mean paying for advertising on broadcast media during a federal election cycle, and it requires disclosures if done by groups and corporations. Fagan used satire to mock Murkowski’s write-in efforts and encouraged Alaskans to run as write-in candidates. That is not illegal. That is free speech.

Individuals like Dan Fagan have a fundamental right to speak their minds without threats from the incumbent Senator from Alaska. It is hard to find a constitutional right Americans cherish more than the right to free speech. This was a right Joe Miller, as a decorated combat veteran – a tank commander tested in battle, was willing to die to defend. Dan Fagan has not always agreed with me, but I will gladly defend his right to speak freely on his radio show, which he has often used to criticize me. In fact, Fagan has actually used his radio show to attack and insult me, my husband, my children, and my family in just about every way possible. He was especially insulting to my son, who left for a war zone to defend Fagan’s right to attack our family. But when I was his governor, I never would have dreamed of threatening his right to free speech. I support him in this fight because this D.C. Beltway thuggery, as exemplified by Lisa Murkowski’s latest threat, is ruining our country. The powers that be want ordinary Americans to sit down and shut up and let the ruling class ride us right off the debt cliff we’re heading towards with Obama, Pelosi, and Reid steering the nation’s car. We can’t let them. Now is the time to put aside our past differences and stand up to the establishment powers.

This whole episode confirms again why we need to elect Joe Miller. Lisa, you can sue me if you want (you won’t be the first). But I will not be intimidated from speaking my mind. Your intimidation just empowered us liberty-loving Alaskans. Are you really that out of touch?

– Sarah Palin

Early Voting Vote Fraud Roundup!

Posted by iusbvision on October 29, 2010

Many states including Indiana have early voting for those who will be out of town, working elections etc. Already the cheating is well underway…

UPDATE IMedia Matters Lies About Vote Fraud Reporting – Obama Justice Department Talks Tough While Encouraging Fraud

 

[Editor’s Note – Special thanks to Olga Mancuso for her valuable research assistance.]

Democrats Arrested for Vote Fraud in Florida Via RWB News:

RWB News Editorial Special Comment: Yes, they are Democrats, but you would not know this by reading the article [below from the Orlando Sentinel]. For some reason the media does not want the public to know about what party is doing the cheating.

From the Orlandosentinel

Daytona Beach City Commissioner Derrick Henry and his campaign manager were arrested this morning and charged with absentee ballot fraud, the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said.

Henry, 41, is charged with two counts of absentee ballots and voting violations, nine counts of being a principal to absentee ballots and voting violations and one count of conspiracy to commit absentee ballots and voting violations.

Genesis Robinson, 21, is accused of 11 counts of being a principal to absentee ballots and voting violations and one count of conspiracy to commit absentee ballots and voting violations.

All of the charges are third-degree felonies, punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.

They will be taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail with bail set at $6,000 each, Sheriff’s spokesman Gary Davidson said.

Volusia County Supervisor of Elections Ann McFall reported irregularities in absentee-ballot requests coming into her office Aug. 11, Davidson said. McFall brought her concerns to the Sheriff’s Office, which launched a joint investigation with the State Attorney’s Office, Davidson said.

That investigation showed Henry and Robinson devised a strategy to boost Henry’s re-election bid by obtaining absentee ballots for numerous people, most of whom never requested the ballots, Davidson said.

By law, residents are only allowed to request absentee ballots for themselves, immediate family members or for someone for whom they’re acting as legal guardian, he said.

McFall filed the complaint after her office received a large number of requests for absentee ballots that were all initiated from the same e-mail address, Davidson said. Based on the e-mail address, it appeared that the requests came from someone with an interest in the Daytona Beach City Commission Zone 5 race, he said.

Henry, the Zone 5 incumbent who was locked in a three-way primary, was re-elected on Aug. 24.

Washington Examiner: Nevada voting machines automatically checking Harry Reid’s name; voting machine technicians are SEIU members

By: Mark Hemingway
Commentary Staff Writer
10/26/10 6:12 PM EDT

Clark County is where three quarters of Nevada’s residents and live and where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son Rory is a county commissioner. Rory is also a Democratic candidate for governor.

Since early voting started, there have been credible reports that voting machines in Clark County, Nevada are automatically checking Harry Reid’s name on the ballot:

Voter Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

“Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”

Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said there is no voter fraud, although the issues do come up because the touch-screens are sensitive. For that reason, a person may not want to have their fingers linger too long on the screen after they make a selection at any time.

Now there’s absolutely no independently verified evidence of chicanery with the voting machines (yet), but it is worth noting that the voting machine technicians in Clark County are members of the Service Employees International Union. The SEIU spent $63 million in elections in 2008 and is planning on spending $44 million more this election cycle — nearly all of that on Democrats. White House political director Patrick Gaspard is formerly the SEIU’s top lobbyist, and former SEIU president Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to the White House last year.

Just in Nevada, the SEIU has given a lot to groups that are heavily vested in the state — in just one prominent example, the SEIU gave $500,000 to the Patriot Majority PAC, which has spent $1.3 million against Reid’s opponent Sharron Angle. They’ve and have dropped large sums directly on candidates:

NV-3 Joe Heck (R) Oppose $140,000.00
NV-3 Dina Titus (D) Support $344,984.00
NV-Senate Sharron E. Angle (R) Oppose $225,000.00

Now the county voting technicians aren’t unique here — many of Clark County’s employees are also represented by the SEIU. But it is worth mentioning, the SEIU is hyperpoliticized and has seen its fair share of corruption. (It certainly seems more questionable than Diebold, the voting machine manufacturer with Republican ties that was at the center of many conspiracy theories on the left during the Bush administration.)

Fox News report on Nevada and their report on 500 voters in Pennsylvania which had absentee ballots fraudulently submitted in their name by someone else

Bucks County Courier Times: Residents cry foul over ballots (near Philadelphia) –

Voter Registration Director Deena Dean said her staff had rejected more than 600 defective absentee ballot applications as of Friday. Although the voter registration office continued to accept applications until the close of business Tuesday, Dean was unable to provide an updated total.

The petition focused foremost on a series of letters voters in Bucks County began receiving some time after Labor Day. On letterhead of the fictitious Pennsylvania Voter Assistance Office, the mailings warned recipients that their right to participate in the Nov. 2 election might be in jeopardy if they failed to respond.

The letters are signed by Frank S. Schultz, a Levittown resident who contributed $2,750 to Murphy’s 2008 campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records.

The letters included an absentee ballot application and a postage-paid envelope addressed to post office box 2172 at the Bristol Borough post office on Beaver Street. The petition includes a photo in which the note containing Persico’s name is visible through the window of the post office box.

“The bogus letter seeks to trick voters into needlessly registering for absentee ballots and then, for reasons unknown, causes them to send those ballots to a post office box apparently controlled by the Democratic candidate for Congress,” the petition says.

Colorado, Arizona and Texas Vote Fraud Attempts by Democrats. Washington State Democrats using illegal aliens as campaign workers:

Democrats Use Thug Tactics Against Poll Watchers – Justice Department Whistle Blower J. Christian Adams:

Now in 2010, we have a pretty good idea what Mr. Bull meant. Because in Houston, poll watchers for a group dedicated to election integrity called ‘True the Vote’ are being harassed because of what they are seeing inside the polls. And it might come as a surprise who is doing the harassing.

Not only are street operatives harassing True the Vote poll watchers, but Representative Shelia Jackson Lee and her confederates are urging law enforcement personnel to crack down – but on the poll watchers!

Lee’s thug tactics are doomed to backfire. The notion of connected elected officials prodding law enforcers to threaten law abiding citizens is an affront to decency. It is the sort of behavior which citizens around the country, in places like Wheeling, Allentown and Highland Park find particularly outrageous.

True the Vote is a group of citizen volunteers, often old ladies or stay at home moms. I should disclose they are also a client of mine. They are dedicated to exercising rights under Texas law to stand watch and record illegal activity in the polling place.

To some, this constitutes intimidation. To the rest of America, this is called public service.

They have recorded dozens and dozens of instances of voters being asked by election officials, “do you want to vote a straight party Democratic ticket?”

These old ladies have been harassed inside the polls by street ruffians as well as sharply dressed ruffian lawyers who told them, “you’ll soon learn what intimidation really means.”

And in each instance, these citizens observers stood their ground – and took names.

Others have complained, “we never had people in here writing things down!” The outrage of it all! Not since Thomas Paine has pen and pad unsettled so many.

During early voting, reports were that one of the old ladies stood too close to a voter, or “hovered.” Whether true or not, this was enough to trigger a Department of Justice investigation, and the outrage of Shelia Jackson Lee.

Never mind that Lee was later videotaped breaking Texas law by engaging voters within a prohibited zone. As we learned in the New Black Panther case, sometimes laws only flow in one direction.

And by the way, the New Black Panther party has announced they will be stationed at the polls again, this time in . . . Houston.

Poll Watcher Testimony from the Advancing Liberty Project from the Liberty Institute:

North Carolina – The News Observer:

RALEIGH — The chairman of the N.C. Republican Party alleged Thursday that a programming flaw with touchscreen voting machines used for early voting in 36 counties is causing votes intended for GOP candidates to be counted for Democrats.

Tom Fetzer, the Republican chairman, said that if the State Board of Elections does not enact a list of demands intended to remedy the problem by the end of today, the party’s lawyers will be in federal court Friday morning seeking a statewide injunction.

Affected counties include some of the state’s largest, such as Mecklenburg and Guilford.

“We cannot have an election where voters in counties where the machines are used have less confidence that their votes are being accurately counted than in counties where optical scan ballots are used,” Fetzer said. “It’s an incompetent situation at the State Board of Elections. We believe that they knew of problems with the calibration of these machines up to two months ago.”

Johnnie McLean, deputy director of the state elections board, said Thursday that her office has received no widespread reports of problems.

“In every election we will have scattered reports of machines where the screens need to be recalibrated,” McLean said. “That sort of comes with the territory with touch-screen technology.”

Fetzer said the GOP is compiling written statements from voters who said they tried to vote a straight-ticket Republican ballot, only to see their votes tallied on a final review screen as being casts for Democrats. He said the problem appears to occur when the touch screen is unsure of the voter’s selection, after which it is programmed to record the vote to the first candidate listed in the race. Democrats are listed before Republicans on the electronic ballots and therefore get the vote.

The machines in question are manufactured by ES&S and programmed and maintained under a statewide franchise by Printelect, a company based in New Bern.

Printelect was recently at the center of questions about high prices charged for paper ballots and sizable donations paid by the company’s owner, Owen Andrews, to high-ranking Democrats that include Gov. Bev Perdue, who appoints the elections board. Andrews has also enjoyed a close relationship with top election officials, for which he provided catered parties and cruses on his 40-foot fishing boat.

Department of Justice Voter section states it has no intention of enforcing vote list maintenance laws. Welcome to Chicago…

Via RedState:

There are 116,000 dead eligible voters in Massachusetts.  And in Florida, one major newspaper recently investigated and reported that almost 15,000 dead Floridians are still hanging around on the election rolls – just six weeks before one of the most vicious and important election cycles in our history.  Can it be the sun?  Most States have similar statistics.  Every two years, states must report to the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC) information about the integrity and accuracy of their voter rolls.  The latest report is not good news for our democracy – or our international reputation. South Dakota, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than breathing human beings old enough to vote.  West Virginia, Maryland, Iowa and North Carolina also reported having eligible deceased voters on their rolls.  The list goes on and on.  And so does the real risk that these voters will have illegal votes registered in their names.  Close races, like the Franken/Coleman race in Minnesota can be decided on just a handful of votes.  We may have to go to purple thumbprints at this rate.  Hugo Chavez must be howling at this American disgrace.

Democrats seem to be suspiciously inept at cleaning out the rolls.  The Ohio Secretary of State is not at all anxious about the fact that nearly 5,800 departed Ohioans are still registered to vote.  A partisan Democrat, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is more concerned about the living – Spanish speaking only voters.  She has cooperated with the Department of Justice to force Cuyahoga County to spend $500,000 on bilingual ballots to accommodate about 6,000 non-English speakers.

In November, 2009 political appointee Julie Fernandes reportedly told the entire assembled Department of Justice Voting Section that the Obama Administration would not enforce the list maintenance legal requirements of Section 8 of the  National Voter Registration Act.  Fernandes reportedly said, “we do not have any interest in enforcing that part of the law.”

Fifteen Missouri Counties Have More Voters Than Population Via Pam Geller:

Fifteen Missouri counties have more voters than census population Missouri Watchdog

Missouri has about 90.3 percent of its census voting-age population registered to vote, but 15 counties show more registered voters than people 18 and older.

Missouri counties with more than 100 percent voter registration (in red)

Map: Missouri counties with more than 100 percent voter registration (in red)

These results use the latest data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Missouri Secretary of State, but 12 of these counties also had more than 100 percent registration in 2008.

These numbers may be high but are an improvement after a federal lawsuit in 2005 found 37 Missouri election jurisdictions had more voters than voting age population.

Obama Administration Gives Illinois Pass on MOVE Act – Illinois than fails to send out overseas military ballots in time, BUT ballots were hand delivered to jail inmates!:

MOVE is the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) act. Nine states failed to get this done while the Dept. of Justice yawns. The military is being disenfranchised from the election. This is an old tactic used by Democrats as Al Gore’s lawyers convinced a Democrat appointed federal judge to agree to toss out all military ballots in Florida in 2001.


Fox News:

Military voters from the land of Lincoln could be shut out of the midterm election after the Justice Department reached an agreement with Illinois that gave the state “a pass” for violating federal election law, an advocacy group warned Monday.

The Justice Department hammered out the court agreement Friday addressing the failure of 35 Illinois counties to send military and overseas absentee ballots 45 days before the election — a requirement of the MOVE Act. The agreement gave voters from six of those counties a few extra days to send back their ballots but did not specifically address the other 29 counties.

Eric Eversole, a former Justice voting section attorney who runs the nonprofit Military Voter Protection Project, told FoxNews.com the deal effectively lets wayward Illinois election officials off the hook and does little to ensure the state’s military voters get their ballots in time.

Texas: Former SEIU Member Registers 23,207 Fraudulent Voters:

Former Service Employees International Union (SEIU) member Steve Caddle of Houston, Texas has been caught registering 23,207 fake voters in Harris County alone due to the hard detective work of Catherine Engelbrecht and her “True the Vote” project.This is one of the best examples of what good citizen activism inspired by Tea Party principles can do for their community.

Catherine Engelbrecht was sick and tired of the vote fraud perpetrated by unions and Democrats and set out to expose it herself. Along with many friends who donated their time, computers, and sweat, they’ve uncovered thousands upon thousands of illegal Democrat “voters” in Texas.

North Carolina Sun Journal (Craven County):

A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

M. Ray Wood, Craven County Board of elections chairman, issued a written statement saying that the elections board is aware of isolated issues and that in each case the voter was able to cast his or her ballot as desired.

Ninth Circuit Judges Interfere with Arizona Election: Rules that you don’t need to show citizenship to register to vote!

Here the 9th Circuit overturned its own precedent just days before the election in order to influence the election. Of course it is ridiculous to not have to show citizenship in order to vote. The 9th is basically saying that since there is a federal election law the Supremacy Clause will not allow states to have their own election laws. Article III Section 4 gives the states jurisdiction in election law so long as they do not violate the Amendments allowing women to vote or discriminate by race:

“The Times, Places and Manner of holding Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by Law make or alter such Regulations”
Congress never indicated that the federal election law standards are designed to replace state law when it comes to legal qualifications to vote. The Supreme Court IS going to reverse this decision and Arizona is already asking the full 9th Circuit (and likely the Supreme as well) to overturn this 9th Circuit mini-panel ruling.

Arizona Daily Star:

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has overturned Arizona’s requirement that people show proof of citizenship to register to vote.

The split decision by a three-judge panel determined that the requirement to show proof of citizenship — passed by voters in 2004 — is not consistent with the National Voter Registration Act.

Associate Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, temporarily sitting by designation, and Circuit Judge Sandra Ikuta, with chief judge Alex Kozinski dissenting, said Prop. 200 creates an additional hurdle, while the national act is intended to reduce “state-imposed obstacles” to registration.

The majority noted that Congress was well aware of the problem of voter fraud when it passed the voter act, and built in sufficient protections, including applying perjury penalties to applicants who lie about their eligibility.

Big Government: Boxer campaign caught soliciting teachers to get student to work her campaign for class credit:

Stay with me here: The Boxer campaign has acknowledged that the letter we posted earlier on Boxer campaign letterhead soliciting teachers to recruit student volunteers is authentic… but they weren’t really soliciting teachers to recruit student volunteers… but they are still sorry. Prepare to have your intelligence insulted by Boxer campaign manager Rose Kapolczynski:

Because some local social studies teachers encourage students to volunteer, Boxer campaign volunteer coordinators notified a handful of schools near the campaign headquarters that the campaign was accepting volunteers. The letter did not ask teachers to solicit students to work on the campaign or to use school facilities, supplies or equipment for political purposes. The sole intent of the letter was to provide interested students with information about a volunteer opportunity. However, the letter, which was written by a volunteer and reviewed by a junior staffer, was inappropriate and we apologize. The author of the letter has been counseled and campaign coordinators will no longer conduct outreach to public schools.”

I acknowledge there’s an amount of wordplay, an amount of posturing done in a campaign, particularly when we get down to the wire in a tight race, but the hubris in this response is overwhelming, if not impressive.  The aforementioned letter begins, “As you may know, Senator Boxer is facing her toughest race yet.  With only 19 days left until election day, it’s now or never.” Later on it’s suggested that teachers can award extra credit to students who work on the Boxer campaign. Yet, according to the Boxer crew…

The letter did not ask teachers to solicit students to work on the campaign or to use school facilities, supplies or equipment for political purposes…

But of course this is a big fat lie – here is the letter read for yourself, click to enlarge:

Boxer Letter

High school aged relatives of mine have given me detailed descriptions of local high school teachers politicking in class. I know who you are and don’t be surprised if your name and picture appear in my upcoming book.

This was not the only case of using schools for illegal politicking –

OHIO:  School Buses Students to Vote, Gives Them Democrat-Only Sample Ballot

Thomas Brinkman, a Republican candidate for county auditor, and a group called the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending & Taxes filed a legal complaint after three van loads of students from Hughes High School were bused on Oct. 13 to the Hamilton County Board of Elections. The students, all registered voters, were given sample ballots that listed only Democratic candidates — “clearly with the intention of instructing [them] how to vote,” according to the complaint — before they cast their ballots.

Then the kids were then taken for free ice cream, a move Brinkman and the coalition said was tantamount to “bribery.”

Brinkman’s attorney, Chris Finney, said a teacher at the high school coordinated with Gwen Robinson, a former principal within the district, to allow a local church to provide three vans to transport the students to a local polling location.

“We wanted to stop this activity, to stop the buses from rolling and the one-sided nature of the contact,” Finney told FoxNews.com. “We want academic freedom.”

On Wednesday, attorneys for the school district and Brinkman filed an agreed order that calls for the district to “not use any personnel or property” for advocating any particular political candidate or party.

We want these kids exposed to the full range of ideas, and this order from the judge requires that,” Finney said.

He isn’t convinced, however, that the busing is limited to Cincinnati.

“We suspect this activity is going on throughout the state of Ohio,” said Finney, who was unable to provide additional details. “And it just needs to stop.”

Winston-Salem Journal:

Some 6,400 staffers and students at Winston-Salem State University received e-mail exhortations Monday to take advantage of early voting and help the Democratic Party, setting off local Republicans.

After a complaint by Nathan Tabor, the chairman of the Forsyth County GOP, university officials acknowledged that the e-mail — sent from the student-affairs division — was improper.

The university cited a state law that prohibits the use of a state employee’s authority or state property to support or oppose a person or an issue in any election.

“We regret it,” said Nancy Young, the director of public relations at WSSU. “We sent out a retraction and said to disregard the earlier e-mail.”

That wasn’t the end of it, though. Yesterday, the university sent out what Tabor called an “equal time” e-mail inviting all the same recipients to work for Republicans during early voting.

That message was to be retracted by the university last night once it had been out six hours — the same amount of time the Democrat message was out before being retracted.

Tabor said he’s upset that he had to call the university and complain.

“That is a tax-funded school,” Tabor said, calling the original e-mail “highly illegal and unethical.”

SEIU Forcing Members to Contribute to Democrat PAC – Obama Administration Admits It’s Illegal, But Declines to Prosecute…

Posted by iusbvision on October 28, 2010

SEIU is the government employees union. SEIU used to share offices with the corrupt and now defunct ACORN (you know the vote fraud outfit that was caught suborning child trafficking, prostitution, bank fraud and tax fraud).

SEIU is Obama’s biggest supporter.

It gets worse….

By the way, many of these unions are not fully funding their employee retirement plans.

The Dead Still Vote in Indiana, Massachusetts and Florida. Obama Admin Refuses to Enforce Voting Integrity Laws

Posted by iusbvision on September 29, 2010

Department of Justice Voter section states it has no intention of enforcing vote list maintenance laws. Welcome to Chicago…

Via RedState:

There are 116,000 dead eligible voters in Massachusetts.  And in Florida, one major newspaper recently investigated and reported that almost 15,000 dead Floridians are still hanging around on the election rolls – just six weeks before one of the most vicious and important election cycles in our history.  Can it be the sun?  Most States have similar statistics.  Every two years, states must report to the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC) information about the integrity and accuracy of their voter rolls.  The latest report is not good news for our democracy – or our international reputation. South Dakota, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than breathing human beings old enough to vote.  West Virginia, Maryland, Iowa and North Carolina also reported having eligible deceased voters on their rolls.  The list goes on and on.  And so does the real risk that these voters will have illegal votes registered in their names.  Close races, like the Franken/Coleman race in Minnesota can be decided on just a handful of votes.  We may have to go to purple thumbprints at this rate.  Hugo Chavez must be howling at this American disgrace.

Democrats seem to be suspiciously inept at cleaning out the rolls.  The Ohio Secretary of State is not at all anxious about the fact that nearly 5,800 departed Ohioans are still registered to vote.  A partisan Democrat, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner is more concerned about the living – Spanish speaking only voters.  She has cooperated with the Department of Justice to force Cuyahoga County to spend $500,000 on bilingual ballots to accommodate about 6,000 non-English speakers.

In November, 2009 political appointee Julie Fernandes reportedly told the entire assembled Department of Justice Voting Section that the Obama Administration would not enforce the list maintenance legal requirements of Section 8 of the  National Voter Registration Act.  Fernandes reportedly said, “we do not have any interest in enforcing that part of the law.”
