Democrats And Voter Fraud

From Soren Dayton:

The 2009 primary election in Troy, NY attracted much attention for election shenanigans from Democratic officials who are associated with the Working Families Party. Well, yesterday, a grand jury issued indictments on 116 charges against a Democratic City Councilmember Michael LaPorto and Democratic Election Commissioner Edward McDonough. The Albany Times-Union and the Troy Record have been all over this.

Basically, those two Democratic officials have been indicted of forging absentee ballot applications and then actually voting those people in the Working Families Party primary. Almost everyone who was voted illegally by these officials were poor people living in housing projects. To make clear what this means: Democratic officials stole the right to vote from poor people.

Color me unsurprised. This is but one of many examples of leftist operatives engaging in voter fraud. Lock them up, throw away the key, and deprive them of their property while you’re at it.

  1. This is anecdotal, therefore meaningless, especially compared to the really important Republican voter frauds in FL and OH in 2000 and 2004 respectively.

  2. Let us know when a liberal Supreme Court throws an election to Democrats and I’ll start paying attention.

    A story, reported in the public press (John included the links), with actual indictments, is anecdotal?

    Oh, you mean like the state Supreme Court of Florida tried to do in 2000?

  5. Dana, here is what Hitchcock said:

    “This is but one of many examples of leftist operatives engaging in voter fraud.”

    Where is the evidence? Therefore, his example is anecdotal, which he then attempts to spread over the Dems. This impresses you, Dana?

    Are we back to tinfoil hat conspiracy theories again, Perry? It’s a shame blu can’t make it on the 12th — you two shou’d get your own booth.

  7. Well, obviously, Democrats in NY were working hard to overcome the effects of global warming. It only seems like voter fraud to outside observers, but if George W Bush hadn’t thwarted the clear consensus of UN scientists on the take and upset settled science, Democrats who care about working families, including children and spotted owls, wouldn’t have to clean up the mess Sarah Plain made.

  8. When everything we own, or may seek to do, or even are, is as the left would have it, in principle and without constitutional or absolute limit placed at hazard during the polling process, then stuffing the ballot box potentially becomes the moral equivalent of a capital crime.

    Well, it’s traditional for wingnuts to start accusing people of crimes they believe their side will commit later, or that will come out later.

    Dana, of course, is on the record as supporting electoral fraud – if his side wins.

    The answer isn’t rocket science. There are proven ways to ensure reliable, transparent voting, and to punish fraudsters on either side. It’s not rocket science.

    If the American system is convoluted, flawed, and open to attack – it’s because the people in charge WANT it convoluted, flawed, and open to attack.

  10. Oh, and BTW – another patriotic American found.

    Roger Stockham, a 63-year-old Army veteran from California who was reportedly angry at the U.S. government, was arrested by police in Michigan and charged with allegedly threatening to blow up a Mosque in Dearborn.

    Dearborn police allegedly found Stockham inside his vehicle outside the Islamic Center of America with a load of M-80s in his trunk and other explosives, the Detroit News reported.

  11. The Phoenician quoted:

    You mean these M-80s? :)

    Maybe the “other explosives” were of a more serious nature, though it would be somewhat unusual to name the firecrackers and omit listing more serious weapons. The story also noted that the accused “has a history of mental problems and criminal offenses,” but somehow our Kiwi Kommenter managed to miss that part.

    I agree, and that, of course, applies to both political parties, as I’m sure you would agree.

    Police: Prof. faked hate crime
    Witnesses say Dunn vandalized own car

    STAFF WRITER

    Wednesday, March 17, 2004 – CLAREMONT – A Claremont McKenna psychology professor vandalized her own car last week and falsely reported the damages as a hate crime against her, police said Wednesday.

    Kerri Dunn, who spoke at a free speech seminar March 9, reported to police after the lecture that her car had been vandalized – tires slashed, windows broken and spray painted with racial epithets. Police, however, say two witnesses have come forward claiming they saw Dunn vandalizing her own vehicle.

    The incident prompted all five of the Claremont Colleges to cancel classes March 10 for teach-ins and rallies against hate crimes. More than 1,000 people attended an evening rally at Claremont McKenna, where students pushed for racial and ethnic tolerance and Dunn was one of the speakers.

    “Very admirably, the college community came together,” Claremont McKenna President Pamela Gann said. “But to have within the community someone who is part of the investigation and questioned is repulsive to the values of the community.”

    Along with the vandalism, Dunn reported $1,700 in property missing from her car. The epithets on Dunn’s car included derogatory remarks about blacks and Jews.

    Police said Wednesday that Dunn could be charged with filing a false police report but said it was unlikely that she would be charged herself with a hate crime.

    Dunn could not be reached for comment Wednesday …

    Dunn’s sister, Colleen, a New Jersey resident, declined to comment on her sister’s case, saying only: “She’s wonderful.”

    Dunn has had a few minor brushes with the law while living and working in Nebraska. Dunn attended the University of Nebraska and taught at Nebraska-Wesleyan University in 2001. There was no record of disciplinary action against her at Nebraska-Wesleyan University, said Sara Olson, spokeswoman with the college.

    Dunn was arrested by the Lincoln Police Department on September 29, 2000 on suspicion of shoplifting, possessing stolen property, refusing to comply with a police officer’s orders among other charges, records show. All of the charges, which are misdemeanors, were dropped except for the shoplifting charge. She was found guilty and fined $200, according to criminal records.

    In September 1999, Dunn was cited on suspicion of driving on a suspended license and failing to appear for a court hearing. She was found guilty of the first charge and paid a $50 fine, records show.

    That is what constitutional government is presumed to remedy: By preventing the emergence of a system wherein everything is in danger of being placed at risk in the name of society or some other group every time an election is held, in the first place.

    But of course, that notion of an absolute limit is something you oppose. How about a little walkin’ around money Perry?

    As do many wingnuts.

    DNW, an “absolute limit” exists only as long as it takes for an exception to turn up!

    No sensible person would enter into a mutual benefit agreement with you would they …
