Grand Theft Democracy, Part Two

Alaska: The state Supreme Court blocked a lower court’s ruling and rewrote the state’s election rules at the eleventh hour in order to help write-in candidate Lisa Murkiewhatsit split the Republican vote.

California: Call-Me-Senator Barbara Boxer (D) “encouraged Los Angeles teachers to offer their students extra credit if they volunteer for her campaign”; this is, of course, in violation of California law.

Nevada: Not only are unions busing their members into the polls to make sure that they vote, they’re watching them as they vote to make sure that they vote democratic. (H/T: Ace of Spades) An attorney for Sharon Angle (R) has accused Senator Harry Reid (D) of trying to steal the election.

Pennsylvania: The Bucks County Board of Elections is holding a hearing today to consider Republican-backed allegations of absentee-voter fraud against Democrats.

Republicans are asking that all absentee ballots be preserved unopened until an investigation is conducted. District Attorney David Heckler has opened an investigation, but says his focus for now is preserving the evidence until after the election. Board of Elections Director Deena Dean said her office was inundated last week with more than 100 calls from voters saying they were confused about a Democratic mailing they had received. The mailing, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Democratic State Committee, told recipients that their “participation in the forthcoming election may be placed in jeopardy” if they did not return an enclosed application for an absentee ballot. Included was a postage-paid envelope, addressed to a “Voter Assistance Office” at a post office box maintained by the Democrats in Bristol. … The Republican-backed petition accuses Democratic campaign workers of fraudulent activity. Some voters contend they were asked to sign applications on behalf of relatives. One woman said someone applied for a ballot in her name, even though she had tossed out her application when it arrived in the mail.

Texas: Eddie Bernice Johnson (D) was the only one on the ballot in a few locations in Dallas County. In another Texas district, challenger Fernando Herrera’s (R) name was missing from the ballot. Sheila Jackson Lee, fresh back from illegally campaigning and harassing people at polling places, has the supreme gall to ask the DOJ to go after the Tea Party monitors at the polls for voter intimidation – not because anyone with half a brain (which excludes Ms. Lee) believes the Tea Party are actually intimidating voters (unlike, say, the New Black Panther Party), but because they’re actually witnessing and reporting the illegal behavior perpetrated by leftists (up to and including Ms. Lee herself).

Wisconsin: the above billboard in Milwaukee was attacked by various leftist “community groups” because accusations of voter fraud were “intended to intimidate people from voting.” Common sense says that it would only intimidate people from voting illegally, something leftist “community groups” know all about, as they tried to get a bill rushed through the legislature in Wisconsin that appeared specifically designed to make such fraud easier for them.

The Left, of course, denies that any of this is happening. In “A Myth of Voter Fraud”, The Washington Independent informs us that:

Republican officials persist in their claims of voter fraud in what appears to be an effort to lay the groundwork for challenging the outcome of Election Day. … “[Republicans are] trying to do what they can to poison the well on the eve of the election because they’re not winning on the issues,” contends Charles Lichtman, statewide lead counsel for the Florida Democratic Party. … Democrats insist that voter fraud is practically nonexistent … Voting-rights experts tend to agree with the Democrats. A study by the Brennan Center for Justice, for example, found that, “It’s more likely that an individual will be struck by lightning than that he will impersonate another voter at the polls.” … [M]any Democrats worry that the GOP claims of voter fraud are a preemptive attempt to undermine the legitimacy of a Barack Obama presidency.

    Finally got time to read your blog – nice work!

    Funny thing about Milkowski in AK – after the AK Supreme Court ruled that polling places had to show a list of write in candidates to voters, somewhere around 100 people went and got confirmed as write in candidates. So it’s going to be a long list!

    I’ve always thought Bush missed an easy bet by not working to make vote fraud a national priority after the disputed election. He certainly had an opening he could have exploited, but never acted. Left untreated, the infection has only grown.

    • RoboMonkey Says:

      On the state level, whenever Republicans try to clear voter rolls and require any sort of verification or validation, they’ve been crucified by Democrats for “intimidating voters” and trying to “disenfranchise minorities”.
