A Blast from the 2008 Election Past

If this story sounds familiar, that’s because we’ve been around this block before. As leaked emails from 2008 remind us.

The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio as reported the night of the election and Sen. McCain chose not to fight.

After discussions with his inner circle, which explains the delay in his speech, McCain decided not to pursue the voter fraud in PA and Ohio, despite his staff’s desire to make it an issue. He said no. Staff felt they could get a federal injunction to stop the process. McCain felt the crowds assembled in support of Obama and such would be detrimental to our country and it would do our nation no good for this to drag out like last go around, coupled with the possibility of domestic violence.

We’ve been going around this track for a while now.

In April, before the election, J Christian Adams, who was purged due to his objections to Attorney General Holder’s intervention on behalf of Black Panther voter intimidation, wrote;

Which raises the problem of Philadelphia. Obviously something is going very wrong in the City of Brotherly Love.  Elections there are a big giant spigot for the Left to keep the state blue.  GOP poll watchers are thrown out of precincts, New Black Panthers stalk the polls, and, worst of all, not enough poll watchers are available to cover all the precincts. It’s time that changed.

But it didn’t change. The GOP poll watchers were thrown out again. The New Black Panthers returned. And another election was stolen.

    Gutless Moderates are Gutless. Sometimes, just sometimes, s___ has to get DONE (investigating and prosecuting voter fraud).

    I didn't know any of this. If true, McCain sold out truth and showed himself to be part of the problem, and not any of the solution. Voter fraud should have been made a major issue 4 years ago and steps taken to combact such fraud. I have become, recently, very interested in True The Vote and I urge all citizens to do the same. It's the first place to start and then we can take the legitimacy of One person, one vote all the way to the top of government.
