Voter Fraud

Filed under: 2008 Election,Crime,General,Scum — Patterico @ 11:04 pm



Instapundit linked this post the other day from Clarice Feldman (mother to my ex-neighbors in Marina del Rey!) about voter fraud by ACORN:

Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.

The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs.

What a shock. Instapundit asks: “I wonder why this doesn’t get more press?” The answer, of course, is that the Conventional Wisdom is that voter fraud simply isn’t a problem. It’s a phony issue manufactured by Rove types to gin up outrage among the rubes.

But I thought I’d take this opportunity to highlight another entertaining link about voter fraud, sent to me by commenter R.R. This has to do with the Governor of Montana boasting to an audience of trial lawyers about voter fraud in his state.

Follow the link and poke around the links there. I would especially recommend this link, which has the Governor’s full remarks. I was unable to open the video file due to technical issues, but somehow the audio popped up on my computer, and I listened to the whole thing. The bit where he boasts about using police to intimidate Republican poll watchers is quite clearly not satire. It is, very clearly, boasting about using backcountry scumbucket tactics to threaten the poll watchers with phony arrests if they didn’t skedaddle — IMMEDIATELY — away from the polling places they had been assigned to monitor.

This guy is scum. He openly boasted about voter fraud. It’s disgusting. Go and listen for yourself.

If I were a prosecuting authority in Montana, you can bet I would open an investigation based on what I heard.

  1. Well, at least Montanans can sleep well at night knowing that AG Mike McGrath is no Elliot Richardson.

  2. No surprise here. The Democrats have depended on vote fraud to remain a viable party for some time now. It drives their policies on Illegal Immigration, on voter ID, and may other topics.

  3. Don’t sell ACORN short, they also are big into enabling mortgage fraud. Obama trained a bunch of their shock troops and they have turned out their workers for him to GOTV in his elections. This year he was even able to toss $800,000 their way.

  5. No wonder the Obama campaign was making noise for awhile that Monatana was in play. Makes one wonder if his primary win there was legit.

    Couldn’t a complaint be filed with the US Attorney by anyone in the country? Doesn’t voter fraud in a national election make the issue national aka federal? Where is the national GOP?

  7. Not wanting to open old issues – but the easiest way to create dimpled chads is to try to punch mutliple ballot cards at the same time – did I say Florida recount. Too many dimple chads in too many precincts to be a fluke.

  8. ACORN is the acronym for the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now.

    Guess which current presidential candidate and former community organizer was the legal representative for ACORN and taught leadership seminars for members.

  9. #7, Joe – Dallas, you did make me think of an old issue, one that won’t go away.

    Dems have a long history of voter fraud. JFK beat LBJ in the 1960 Primary when contrary to expectations West Virginia voted for the Catholic candidate. For some strange reason, the Labor Unions bosses, the Mob, and the KKK all seemed to be unfied behind Kennedy.

    JFK then defeated Nixon in the general election when, surprise surprise, a large block of Chicago votes suddenly came in late in the evening, almost all for JFK. As later events were to prove, that fraud had long lasting consequences.

    They don’t. Bloodsuckers sleep during the day, when everyone else is working.

    Hey, pond-scum provides valuable sustenance to a myriad of creatures, when’s the last time a liberal did anything useful for anybody?

    If that’s directed to me: You’re Welcome, and it’s great to be back.
    Bigot!

    That’s why I said “almost”!

    that made me laugh
