This is Not The Voter Fraud You Were Looking For

Evidence of In Person Voting Fraud, the cause de rigueur of Right-Wing bigots these days is no existant. Allegations are made everyday and parroted upon thousands of conservative blogs.

But, what is rampant are instances and arrests for Republicans tampering with ballots. The True Voter Fraud is being committed by Republicans.

In Clackamas County Oregon, a Republican election worker is alleged to have tampered with ballots,
The underlying allegation is that the woman, whose name has not been released, filled in blanks on ballots turned into the county for the Nov. 6 general election. 
 Sources familiar with the incident say their understanding is that the woman filled in a straight Republican ticket on the ballots where preferences had been left blank by voters.
Republicans have been caught committing Voter Fraud, on multiple occasions, this election.

On October 19th Colin Small, an employee of the Republican Party of Virginia, was charged with four counts of destruction of voter registration applications, eight counts of failing to disclose voter registration applications and one count of obstruction of justice.

In Nevada,
Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller's office is reporting that a southern Nevada woman has been arrested on charges of trying to vote more than once. 
According to the secretary, the state's Election Integrity Task Force arrested 56-year-old Roxanne Rubin, a registered Republican, late Friday afternoon at the Riviera Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.  
In Ohio, a reported "glitch" caused thousands to have their absentee ballot requests incorrectly rejected, 
Secretary of State Jon Husted has acknowledged that a data-sharing glitch between his office and the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles likely caused some absentee-ballot applications to be wrongfully rejected because county boards did not have up-to-date information on registrants’ addresses.
If the math holds up, he said, as many as 4,500 registered voters will not receive absentee ballots they requested. As many as 6,000 provisional ballots cast by registered voters could go uncounted, Norman Robbins, research director at Northeast Ohio Voter Advocates, said.
Oh goodness. It's trite statement to make that if Sec of State Husted had a D after his name instead of an R, Faux News, Deadbart, Tucker Carlson and the Drudge Report would be alleging a massive conspiracy by President Obama.

Husted has also instituted a last minute change to the provisional ballot system contrary to Ohio Law and in violation against an Oct 26th Court Ruling, making Voter reponsible for ID requirements instead of poll workers.

And the Whale of all Voter Frauds is Nathan Sproul, who has worked for the RNC in 2004, 2008, and 2012 has collected Millions of Dollars in funding from conservatives.

In Florida, Sproul organization is under investigation for registration fraud. Sproul is also associated with Colin Small and the Republican Party of Virginia and is still conducting registration and voter-canvassing for Republicans in 30 states. 

But, these don't get mentioned on Faux News or in the incestous amplification of the circle jerk repostings of the Alternate Conservative Reality blogs.

Of course, the true aim of the Right is Voter Suppression. Right-Wingers have wanted to disenfranchise and restrict the voting rights of some Americans since 1980. The less who vote the more easily power can be concentrated in the hands of the Wealthy Plutocracy.

Ah, the poor crazed Republican woman in Clackamas County. She's got a million of us bright blue Portlanders dragging her around and she finally snapped.

Looks like the GOP has a few fraudsters scattered around the country.

They're pikers compared to Crook County...

Silverfiddle said...

And I agree with Brewster.

GOP voter fraud in Oregon? If someone were going to do it, at least try it where it's close.

What a dim bulb...

You're right Silverfiddle the Sec of State in Ohio is *trying* to steal the election for Romney but fortunately his efforts are going to fail.

Tom Harper said...

How many court orders does the Ohio Secretary of State need to violate before he's jailed for Contempt of Court?

Green Eagle said...

About a billion, Tom. Don't forget. It's Okay If You're A Republican.

Sarge said...

For The Record!
The ONLY Ever conviction of voter fraud in the State of Indiana was on Charlie White, Indiana's former Secretary of State - the official charged witn managing the electoral process.

Yes, White was a Republican and now as a felon - He can't even vote.


Fuck you, silverfiddle.

Thanks Sarge! I forgot that one. With the widespread antics and crimes of the Republicans it's easy to forget their convicted felons, especially with their Voter Suppression antics in Florida, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.

Tom Harper I believe the answer is Republicans are never guilty even convicted criminals like Tom Delay proclaim their convictions are the result of Liberal Bias.
