Democrats Refuse to Address Voter Fraud

Democrats Refuse to Address Voter Fraud
by Lynn Woolley

If the Democratic Party is looking for a slogan for the 2008 election cycle, how about this one: vote early and often. It would be a perfect fit since Democrats seem to have no desire whatsoever to address the issue of voter fraud.


Take the situation at the Texas statehouse where Senate Republicans tried to pass a bill that would require a photo ID to vote. The idea was to make sure, in these days of rampant identity theft, that the person casting the vote is eligible to do so. Makes sense, right? Apparently not to Democrats.

They immediately called in Sen. Carlos Uresti of San Antonio, whod been out with the flu, and exposed everyone in the Senate chamber to whatever bug he was carrying. They had to do it. Without Urestis vote, the bill might have gotten past the two-thirds vote needed for consideration.

Another Democratic senator, Leticia Van de Putte, is concerned that she may not be able to go to the bathroom. Shes afraid that is she leaves the Senate floor, one of the Republicans may try to bring the bill up again.

Obviously, this photo ID bill is a big deal to Democrats. To understand why, you simply have to look at which party is on the losing side of voter fraud, and which party stands to gain.

Now this is funny... Everyone, yes everyone, outside of the 28%ers know this is just a stalking horse to deprive people of the right to vote. Pick up the newspaper. Read about all of the convictions for voter fraud to date. Lets see, there was that poor guy who mistakenly filled out an application at a DMV and got deported back to Pakistan for it. Another 4 hired GOTV workers who got arrested for forging one (yes 1) name on a registration form.
This is what the whole AG scandal is about folks. Good, honest US Attorneys ordered by Komrade Rove to find voter fraud when there is none. Sorry, if this is the latest Republican "issue", lets break out the champagne for 2008.

les-If the guy was deported, MAYBE it meant that he was here too long, like overstayed his student visa, or was here illegaly.
WHAT PART OF ILLEGAL DON'T YOU GET??????

LES--That's nonsense; everyone knows the overwhelming number of immigrants is being lured to the Democrat party.

TMW & Verityink,
Yes, you are exactly right. One of the BIG voter fraud prosecutions was actually an immigration case. You made my point exactly!

les-I'm NOT a republican and I haven't been one for 10+ years. So quit throwing me in the bowl!
I'm a libertarian and especially I AM A CHRISTIAN. What is right is right, what is wrong I eshew! So get it right.

tmw
In other words, quit trying to throw republican politicians in my face!

LES--Don't be simple! The new immigrants aren't a member of EITHER American party; they join the Dems because the Dems are for all the social gimmees they want--THAT makes my point for ME.

And I don't consider FreeRepub a credible site, so it'll do no good to mention it here.

Funny thing though, the libs sure thought they had Ann Coulter on ''voter fruad''. Turns out she wasn't. Yeah, they really thought they had her that time. But Dems and voter fraud? Voter intimditation and even vandalism of Republican commitee centers, slash tires on their cars? Ah, well, you know,''rough and tumble'' politics,right? S'matter, can't take a joke, you up-tight conservatives? Les, you're a twit, "Komrade '' Rove. You know, if Bush and Rove are these diabolical geniuses, why is it you libs call them stupid?

Les Is More - Just because GOP's are dissatisfied with the GOP Party DOES NOT mean they'll be joining up with you democrats.


Most of us would rather not be involved in politics at all than be a democrat.

Lets see...lets start from thet top:

tmw - sorry to paint you with that broad brush. But as you are aware, Dems and I are painted with a VERY broad brush. Thats no excuse though, my apologies.

Donal - Not sure what the reference was to immigrants being of one party or another. I certainly didnt mention any affililation. My point was that the 'voter fraud' meme; the last straw for the desparate Republicans, has proven to be nothing but a couple of guys making mistakes on voter registration forms, to date. It is a distraction to disenfranchise tens of thousands of Americans who do have the right to vote. Think voter roll purges (Florida 2000, Ohio 2004).

Anon - Well, if you do more than watch Faux News or just read the headlines, you would know the Coulter story is far from over. The FBI has launched an internal investigation to find out who and why a 'call was made' to get little Annie off the hot seat. Try reading a newspaper, not just listening to OxyRush!

how surprising can this be? Look at 2 of the other articles at this site along about the left stuffing a guy's daughter's scholarship with their votes and the anti-war jerk who apparently falsified his background. Seeing deceitful trend here?

LES--Where's all that vaunted 'compassion' the Left is supposed to have? Rush had an addiction which he manfully dealt with. Please do not malign him on this site with undeserved nicknames. Address Tedo's drinking or Obambi's 'snorting' and toking problems, if you must talk about addiction.

Les you absolutely HAVE to be a proponent of mob rule to believe the dog squeeze that you wrote in that 1st sentence. "Depriving people of the right to vote."

Only illegals Les. Certainly you don't haver any problem with that? Just be honest, we already know why lefties work so hard against this type of legislation, AND why they worked so hard to exclude absentee military votes in the 2000 elections. You guys are such liars.

Royal Masset, the former political director of the Republican Party of Texas said... Among Republicans it is an "article of religious faith that voter fraud is causing us to lose elections," Masset said. He doesn't agree with that, but does believe that requiring photo IDs could cause enough of a dropoff in legitimate Democratic voting to add 3 percent to the Republican vote. (emphasis added)

MORGAN - READ THE LAST SENTENCE OF THIS POST. TELL ME THIS ISNT A STALKING HORSE TO STIFLE LEGITIMATE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS.

Morgan,
And we didnt work hard enough to invalidate ballots that were FAXED in after the election (against election law) or that were filed AFTER the election (against election law). Why do you hate the rule of law so much? Have you no respect for our constitution. Our military needs to respect and honor the laws, just like everyone else. I always managed to get my absentee ballot in on time, and that was in the 70s, from a stinking hole in Viet Nam. In this day and age, there is no excuse.
