WHAT Voter Fraud…?? (NC finds 35,000 w/ same first/last name, DOB, voted in 2012)


Voter ID - 1

Nothing to see here. Move along.

(via PJ Media) – “…The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.

  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

Now ain’t THAT just a co-ink-i-dink?

(VIDEO) Mr. Virtual President, on Voter Fraud

v-potus-headerBill Whittle is back again, in his role as ‘Mr. Virtual President’.

His previous forays as the ‘MVP’ are here (“VIRTUAL Inaugural Address of 2013”),

and here (“2nd Amendment is there to protect the American people from US…”).

In this edition he addresses Voter Fraud, a subject that we’ve hit many times, as well. It’s a short clip (only 7 minutes), but as always, Whittle delivers the goods:

Judge on Pennsylvania Voter ID: “Sounds like a good idea. So, ..no”.

Why do I live in such a stupid state?

Courtesy of MSN.com:

Updated at 11:10 a.m., 10/2/12 — A Pennsylvania judge has blocked enforcement of the key section of a voter identification law which the state legislature enacted and Republican Gov. Tom Corbett signed last March, meaning that the law will not be in effect for the Nov. 6 election.

Judge Robert Simpson said that even with the streamlined procedures that state officials proposed to make it easier for voters without ID cards to obtain them, “the proposed changes are to occur about five weeks before the general election, and I question whether sufficient time now remains to attain the goal of liberal access” to ID cards.

He said, “I expected more photo IDs to have been issued by this time. For this reason, I accept Petitioners’ argument that in the remaining five weeks before the general election, the gap between the photo IDs issued and the estimated need will not be closed.”

Notice that the judge doesn’t bother to specify what amount of IDs would have qualified as “more”. Thanks so much, Justice Nebulous….

However, it wasn’t a total loss:

Simpson also said that those challenging the law have conceded that the part of the law which requires proof of identification for absentee voting does not harm would-be voters and may be implemented.

Okay, that’s something, especially since early voting tends to favor the Democrats.

Rather than go off on my typical rant, I’m just going to offer a refresher course in why Voter ID makes total, absolute sense and those folks throwing a fit over it are clearly either (A) up to no good or (B) semi-sentient.

This post ran back during the summer, and was from our Guest Noggin, LivinRightInPGH’. I’m just including the essential parts, but you’re certainly welcome to go back and read the entire thing.

I’m intrigued and more than a little concerned by the whole issue that surrounds the integrity of voting in these great United States.  Moreover, I’m perplexed as to why the US Department Of Justice, led by Eric Holder, is doing everything in its power to block any measure that would enforce Voter ID laws.  I’d like to say that I don’t understand why they’d do such a thing, but sadly…I do.

If you can’t win on the issues, and if you can’t win fairly at the ballot box, you’re going to need a whole bunch of dead folks, non-citizens, et al, to swing the election your way.

Perhaps this is why Holder’s Justice Department stopped non-partisan election reform by claiming that unless there was a “D” next to a candidate’s name, African-American voters “wouldn’t be able to identify and vote for the Democrats.”  He went on to call laws requiring valid voter ID a “poll tax,” with the clear aim of stoking racial animus.  It was such a distasteful argument that even the Ninth Circus Court of Appeals rejected it.

As I recall, JTR covered a ton of places where ID is needed in a post several months ago. They included:

    • Driving
    • Getting on an airplane
    • Opening a bank account

(Oh, by the way:  If you want to visit the USDOJ, you need to show proper and acceptable ID.  Just sayin’…)

The whole argument against voter ID laws from the left is a smokescreen of perceived racism just to cover up one simple fact:  Without voter fraud, they CAN’T win.

The Heritage Foundation recently noted:

“Georgia, which has had voter ID since 2007, allows six different forms of ID to vote.  And there has been no stampede of would-be voters who lack identification:  ‘The number of photo IDs issued by Georgia to individuals who did not already have one of the forms of ID acceptable under state law is remarkably small, averaging less (than) 0.05% in most years, and not even reaching 3/10ths of 1% in a presidential election year.’”

You may be interested to know, however, that in Georgia, Hispanic voting increased over 140% from 2004 to 2008, while African-American voting increased by 42% over the same time frame.

So much for disenfranchisement.

One more quote from Heritage:

“America cannot allow its elections to be anything but secure and legal.  Preventing voter fraud is common sense, and it is outrageous that the U.S. Justice Department would stand in the way.”

Well, my friends, outrageous or not, this is EXACTLY what they’re doing.

SURPRISE! Voter ID rules protect seniors, minorities

Since ‘livinrightinpgh‘ covered Voter ID  a few days ago, this article caught my eye. It is from The Daily Caller, so we’ll only take a piece of it, and direct you back there for the rest.

Here’s the start:

Criminal justice data shows that blacks and poor people are the most common victims of voter fraud and are the greatest beneficiaries of voter identification rules, according to a new study.

The courtroom evidence “completely contradicts the [progressive claim] that blacks, seniors, college students and other disadvantages groups are being victimized,” said Horace Cooper, an adjunct fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research.

“The truth is … [that] the criminals — more often than not — are Democrats violating the rights of people who tend to be black or senior,” he told The Daily Caller.

A large investigation in Virginia, for example, showed that 30 percent of fraud allegations were centered in Richmond, which has the highest percentage of African-Americans in the state. In the state a wide investigation of voter fraud produced criminal charges against 38 people.

Good voter identification procedures would reduce that fraudulent voting, and aid minorities most, Cooper said.

The new study damages progressives’ claims that the popular demand for voter identification laws mask a GOP effort to suppress the vote of racial and ethnic minorities who support Democratic candidates.

That claim has been central to a variety of Democratic efforts to block voter ID laws in critical swing-states, including Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Oh, the folks over in Eric Holder’s office will NOT be happy about this.

By whatever means necessary: Voting In America

(Editor’s Note: since there are two of us, at least one Head is usually around to run the ship. However, while we were on vacation a couple weeks back, ‘LivinRightInPGH’ filled in for us ….and did a super job. So, we offered him a guest gig anytime the spirit moved him. It seems that today was one of those days. 

No idea how regularly ‘PGH’ will be posting in the future. We’re hopeful it’s fairly often.

At this time, the State of New York (soon to be followed by MANY others) is requiring companies who sell life insurance and annuities to run their entire client base against a Social Security Administration’s Death Master File, in order to see if there are any “unclaimed funds”.  You see, if the deceased was a New York resident, and no claim has been filed on their accounts, New York wants the insurance company to send THEM the money.  Of course (insert dripping sarcasm here), the state will do their best to find those beneficiaries, but in the meantime, that money will just happen to sit in their state’s general fund, accruing interest.

Which made me wonder: does the great state of New York do the same thing with their voter registration lists? Using the same methodology, they could quickly and easily make sure that the “dead” aren’t casting votes from the afterlife, right?
Right?

Priorities

Virginia is now the latest battleground in an ongoing fight over voter ID laws.

From Ace Of Spades HQ:

As Virginia legislators hotly debated a voter ID bill that narrowly passed the General Assembly, many were unaware of a state police investigation that, so far, has resulted in charges against 38 people statewide for voter fraud. Warrants have been obtained for a 39th person who can’t be located.

Many opponents of the voter ID law maintained that there was no evidence of widespread election fraud in Virginia, and the law would suppress the vote of minorities and others who don’t have adequate identification. About 3.7 million Virginians voted in the 2008 election.

A total of 194 cases statewide where police determined a violation likely occurred have been closed because the commonwealth’s attorneys in those localities declined to prosecute those individuals, police said.

The results of the state police investigation appears to contradict, to some degree, claims made by some opponents of the voter ID bill that no evidence existed of widespread voter fraud in Virginia.

No brainer, right? Pass a law which would require a voter to show ID, prior to being given a ballot. Valid ID would include a government ID, a passport or a driver’s license. This is NOT hard. Seeing as we need such ID to perform numerous mundane tasks throughout our lives, and voting is one of our most sacred rights, this would appear to make perfect sense. Of course, some folks would disagree. Those people would be Democrats.

Why? Well, listen to them:

Republicans, ……..literally want to “drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws .Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, D-Fla, chair of the Democratic National Committee.

Not to be outdone, from the Rachel Maddow Show:

“Voter ID Laws (are) a Racist GOP Conspiracy

And no list of leftists would be complete without the AFL-CIO:

“America is about inclusion, not exclusion. And we gotta make sure more people  vote and have the opportunity to vote. We don’t need to be erecting barriers to  our seniors and in Pennsylvania it would disenfranchise a disproportionate  number of seniors”.

Disenfranchisement? Let’s consider just a few of the places I currently need to show ID: whenever I cash a check, buy a gun, purchase groceries (if I use a credit card), pick up mail from FedEx or UPS, apply for a Library card, enter a club or bar, visit a corporate office, apply for most jobs, rent a car or hotel room, get on a plane, redeem a lottery ticket, or buy alcohol.

And there’s plenty more.

This is how we elect our public officials! Shouldn’t that right be guarded at least as well as my ability to buy a liter of Jim Beam?

———————————–

You’ve probably already heard about James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas, who recently were offered voting ballots for Attorney General Eric Holder, alleged comedian Bill Maher and Media Matters founder David Brock.

Armed with this proof of exactly how easy it is to get a ballot illegally, the government responded by investigating ……O’Keefe.

Of course.

Due to the importance of this topic, I’d love to think that it will lead the news tonight. Sadly, I’m guessing that there will be more important things covered instead.
