Last week at the Texas Tribune Festival on the campus of the University of Texas I participated in a panel “moderated” by former MSNBC host Toure. The topic was “The State of Black America.” During the discussion, he decided to bring up a red herring that the GOP was attempting to suppress black vote.
It’s funny, we’ve seen the largest voter turnout of the black electorate in the past two presidential elections, and it’s obvious why. Toure tried to insinuate that presenting a picture ID was racist, to which I inquired, tell me what building in Washington DC or New York City will allow you entrance without picture ID? Ask yourself, can you board an airplane without a picture ID? I guess airlines are racist. And come to think of it, back at the 2012 Charlotte DNC convention, they required picture ID to enter…racist?
But for folks like Toure, the integrity of our electoral system and process isn’t important. After all, it’s not about everyone’s vote counting, it’s about who counts the votes. And I kinda know a little bit about voter fraud. It’s hard to believe that in St. Lucie County they had voting precincts with over 100 percent voter turnout.
You can also ask former Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman about voter fraud…remember his election against Al Franken? Apparently all kinds of ballots were showing up in strange places. And oddly enough, they were all for Al Franken.
And so it seems the old adage that lightning never strikes the same place twice does apply. When it comes to voter fraud, the lightning just finds a new place to strike.
If Democrats can’t find anyone alive to vote for Hillary, they’ll just get dead ones. Two states have popped up in the news recently for registering dead people.
Last week, A CBS4 investigation found multiple cases of dead men and women voting in Colorado months and in some cases years after their deaths, a revelation that calls into question safeguards designed to prevent such occurrences.
“We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams after reviewing the CBS4 findings. “It shows there is the potential for fraud.”
One of the most glaring cases was that of Sara Sosa in Colorado Springs. She died on Oct. 14, 2009. However, CBS4 uncovered voting records that showed ballots cast for Sosa in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Her husband, Miguel, died on Sept. 26, 2008. But CBS4 unearthed records showing that a vote was cast in his name the next year, 2009.
Now it’s Virginia. The Washington Free Beacon reports, A Virginia Young Democrat working for a Democrat-aligned voter registration group got caught filing applications on behalf of dead people when he filed an application for a deceased World War II veteran who was known by a local clerk.
Andrew Spieles, a James Madison University student working for HarrisonburgVotes, confessed earlier this month that he submitted 19 applications for deceased individuals, according to a report in the local Daily News-Record.
The 19 applications were submitted through HarrisonburgVotes, which is run by Joe Fitzgerald, a prominent local Democrat. Fitzgerald is chairman of his congressional district’s Democratic Committee.
William Howell, the Republican speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates, told the Post that this is proof that voter fraud is a serious problem.
“Oftentimes we hear our Democratic colleagues suggest that voter fraud doesn’t exist in Virginia, or it’s a myth,” said Howell. “This is proof that voter fraud not only exists but is ongoing and is a threat to the integrity of our elections.”
Howell’s Democratic counterpart in the House said that since nobody cast a vote, “there was no voter fraud.”
I just have to laugh – there was no fraud because no vote was cast? House Minority Leader David Toscana. “Nobody cast a vote. There’s still no evidence of (fraud) going on in the state. But there is evidence every time you turn around that the Republicans are trying to make it more difficult for citizens to vote in elections.”
No sir, Republicans would like to make it more difficult for dead people and non-citizens to vote. Perhaps he missed the revelation that Arcan Cetin the non-citizen terrorist who killed five people in the Cascade Mall in Washington, voted in three federal elections.
And don’t forget, the State Department had a big whoopsie when it “mistakenly” granted citizenship to 858 aliens who were actually set to be deported because they came from countries with “security concerns.” I wonder who they’ll be voting for?
I’m quite sure more instances of fraudulent voter registration will emerge. After all, it’s the Clintons we’re dealing with. But it begs serious questions about the control mechanisms and measures in place to ensure registration is verified and voting ballots are a controlled item, not able to be reproduced.
We know ISIS has been successful in making phony passports – who’s to say we won’t have a problem with phony ballots?
We have an issue in America where most folks don’t trust the voting ballot machines in the first place. And when you have suspicious cases like mine and that of Norm Coleman, they potentially do have sound reason for concern.
In my case in Florida, when Ms. Walker submitted the final results from St. Lucie County, not fully recounted — funny how the shift in votes was just outside the threshold of a required recount — she admitted issues with the final tally. It was very disconcerting to folks when the Florida Secretary of State issued no challenge, nor did the Florida Attorney General conduct an investigation.
One of the accusations against St. Lucie Country Supervisor of Elections Gertrude Walker back in 2012 was that ballots seemed to be shifting at odd hours of the night from their storage facility
In any event, stay tuned for more stories like this to pop up. We may need to check out dilapidated warehouses in battleground states like Florida — especially down South Florida and the I-4 corridor.
You can be sure we’ll keep y’all informed.
