In Ayn Rand’s book, Atlas Shrugged, the recurring mystery question is, “who is John Galt?” The question in the aftermath of the Virginia gubernatorial race yesterday is, “Who is Robert Sarvis?”
Sarvis was the Libertarian candidate in the Virginia race who garnered 6.7% of the vote – bear in mind Republican Ken Cuccinelli lost by only 3 points. Now it seems there may have been some nefarious actions going on behind the scenes supporting Mr. Sarvis.
As close as the race was, a report out Tuesday by The Blaze indicates there were shenanigans at play:
A major Democratic Party benefactor and Obama campaign bundler helped pay for professional petition circulators responsible for getting Virginia Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Robert C. Sarvis on the ballot.
According to the report, campaign finance records show the Libertarian Booster PAC made the largest independent contribution to Sarvis’ campaign. The Blaze identified Austin,Texas software billionaire Joe Liemandt as the Libertarian Booster PAC’s major benefactor. What a surprise: he also happens to be a top bundler for President Barack Obama.
This story might not be so surprising if it came out of Zimbabwe during an election for Robert Mugabe, but not in the United States. The level of election corruption emanating from the Democrat party is astonishing.
But even more perplexing is that the Republican party never seems to want to engage on this subject. And this is something of which I speak from experience –St Lucie County Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker comes to mind. I don’t know what it will take, but at some point America has to reverse the disturbing election cycle trend of fraud and corrupt practices that are making us resemble a third world country. At this rate, will we ever have free and honest elections again?
