Voter Fraud: Dems on Dems Update: Dem on Republican

In the knock down, brass knuckle world of politics, I am not surprised, even those Gigi Gaston is. And I am not surprised it’s the Obama camp that turned the table on Hillary.This is from Fox and Friends weekend. The interview is Democrat strategist Gigi Gaston, who in 2008 made a Documentary on voter fraud in the Democrat primary. The first interview is Gigi explaining what she saw after arriving in Texas. The second bite is civil rights activist Helene Latimer. Nice work “Organizing for Obama”.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air is not sure this isn’t a group with an axe to grind. And as he says, it’s not like Hillary doesn’t play tough?

he allegations appear to be entirely confined to caucus states, which is one of the reasons I’m skeptical. Caucuses are bare-knuckled brawls where the parties make the rules and the campaigns routinely and viciously fight over them. I have no trouble believing that Team Obama played hardball and cut as many corners as they could without getting caught. What I have trouble believing is that Hillary Clinton wasn’t doing the exact same thing in these states. After all, Hillary was hardly a babe in the woods.

UPDATE: I originally called this post Dem on Dem voter fraud … but then this story came along. Very Nice.

The six-month election recount that turned former “Saturday Night Live” comedian Al Franken into a U.S. senator may have been decided by convicted felons who voted illegally in Minnesota’s Twin Cities.

That’s the finding of an 18-month study conducted by Minnesota Majority, a conservative watchdog group, which found that at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis-St. Paul voted illegally in the 2008 Senate race between Franken, a Democrat, and his Republican opponent, then-incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman.

    Hugh Hewitt wrote a book titled "If it isn't close, they can't cheat".   Let's make sure it isn't close.

    Ahh, study by a "conservative watchdog group"-what a surprise.

    Minnesota Supreme Court stated that Coleman did not make any allegations of vote fraud. In its decision rejecting Coleman's appeal of the decision declaring Franken the winner of the 2008 Minnesota Senate race, the Minnesota Supreme Court <a title="http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2 Fwww.mncourts.gov%2Fopinions%2Fsc%2Fcurrent%2FOPA090697-6030.pdf%23page%3D4 http://www.mncourts.gov/opinions/sc/current/OPA09… href="http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2 Fwww.mncourts.gov%2Fopinions%2Fsc%2Fcurrent%2FOPA090697-6030.pdf%23page%3D4" rel="nofollow">stated that "[n]o claim of fraud in the election or during the recount was made by either party" and <a title="http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2 Fwww.mncourts.gov%2Fopinions%2Fsc%2Fcurrent%2FOPA090697-6030.pdf%23page%3D5 http://www.mncourts.gov/opinions/sc/current/OPA09… href="http://mediamatters.org/rd?to=http%3A%2F%2 Fwww.mncourts.gov%2Fopinions%2Fsc%2Fcurrent%2FOPA090697-6030.pdf%23page%3D5" rel="nofollow">that "Coleman's counsel confirmed at oral argument that Coleman makes no claim of fraud on the part of either voters or election officials."

    But, let's take the study of the "conservative watchdog group" 0ver the Minn. supreme court.

      Said findings only came after 18 months of investigation.  Did the Minn. Supremes have that evidence to consider?

       

      It is no more necessary that an "conservative watchdog group" be incorrect than a "liberal watchdog group".  Let's weigh the evidence before coming to a partisan conclusion.

      Who blocks positive voter ID?  Who blocks the purging of the dead and unqualified from voter rolls?  Who sends out New Black Panthers to "poll watch" (and by refusing to prosecute them, it is tacit approval of what they did)?   Who counts votes over and over again to get the results they want?  Who sponsors the "Motor Voter Law"?  Who complains about electronic voting booths (except when their candidate wins)?  Who actively works to discount military votes?

       

      The "who" is rhetorical, of course.

      Where are the supposedly real watchdog groups, the so called objective media?

       

      At least I get minute by minute coverage of Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan!

      You did notice that everyone in the documentary, as well as the author, are Democrats, right?

    If you are against voter fraud, you must be against all voter fraud whether it was Kennedy's or W's. All unproven by the way. From the Irish poet Gene Courtney comes this limerick about a recent election. It's called "Election Erring".  "George W. he gave a great swipe. He said the floor with Al Gore he would wipe, With his brother's bed made in the everglade, could there be a fix in the fight?" If you are concerned only about the other guy's fraud are you a half-patriot, or just in it for the entertainment?

      Well, when Republicans make a documentary about Republican on Republican fraud of this nature, I trust Jim will be obliged to post it.

       

      I just think that Republicans are rank amateurs, even babes in the woods, when it comes to this level of sophisticated fraud.  I don't know if I would be happy to hear otherwise, but I would be happy to entertain any evidence to that end.

        •After a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina, supporters of Barack Obama went to a nearby early voting center, where they were heckled and harassed by a group of protesters as they went in to vote. Nearly all of the early voters were black, and nearly all of the protesters were white.

        •In Virginia, students at Virginia Tech were told that if they registered to vote in Virginia, it could affect their scholarship or tax dependency status and would obligate them to change their car registration and driver’s license to their permanent address.

        •Finally, a poll worker in Dearborn, Michigan was perceived to be intimidating Muslim Americans, of which Dearborn has a large concentration. Two Michigan precincts also reported the presence of police scanning the long lines for voters with outstanding warrants, with one person being arrested.”

        Why don't you leave your bookmarks of right wing sites and google this-and there was more.

        BTW, where is Adams on these violations?

        Point one: getting past the "nearly's", can we see the video?  And put the links in your response.  It is easy.  Anyone heckling or harrassing anyone at a polling place should be arrested.  By the way, how did they know the "hecklees" were voting for Øbama, and not Hillary?  Is your assessment based on their alleged color?

         

        Point two: students should register to vote where they reside, and get absentee ballots if necessary.  If they register as residents at the school, of course their tax dependencies, registrations and licenses will change?  You don't agree?  I had to do it when I was in school out of state.  Again the question must be asked: how did anyone know who these students were voting for?

         

        Point three: You mean ultraliberal Dearborn, Michigan?  I'm shocked!  What year was this?  Could it have been anytime near 9/11/01?  That could make some people hostile, although Americans have been largely tolerant.  As for the warrant scan, the polling place was likely inappropriate, but you break the law to the point that there is a warrant out for you, you might want to lay low.

         

        Again, links and details.  If you went to the trouble to get these links, it is easy, convenient and supportive of your point to post the links too.

      Cute!  So in lieu of facts I am supposed to reject (according to this Boston Globe article), you post this?  You did note that the effect was essentially the same for both liberals and conservatives.  How about libertarians?

       

      I'm laughing at you, not with you.  😉  Howls of derisive laughter at that!   Stay cool!
