Voter Fraud Facts and Fiction

Pages: 1 2

Hackers from Iran and China also came close to breaking in. “After the hack,” according to AOLNews.com, “(D.C.) administrators decided to relaunch under a download-only format, allowing users to access ballots but forcing them to fax or mail them rather than cast a vote online.” The D.C. official who oversaw the system, Paul Stenbjorn, now works for Scytl.

FICTION: Chain e-mails about Scytl claim that George Soros owns, operates or controls Scytl. In reality, the company’s investors are Nauta Capital, Balderton Capital and Spinnaker SCR. Soros doesn’t “own” any of these international venture capital firms — and as far as my research shows, he has no involvement whatsoever with any of them. Moreover, Scytl’s board of directors doesn’t include anyone with Soros financial or management ties. Pressed for evidence, one Internet conspiracy nut cited an “invitation only event” in Moldova that listed both the “Soros Foundation Moldova” and Scytl as attendees.

Soros has enough explicit ties to President Obama’s administration and campaign without having to embellish them. Just this week, The New York Times reported that he will donate $1 million each to a Democratic super-PAC and a leading progressive get-out-the-vote (GOTV) operation. Soros previously funded Project Vote, the notorious voter-mobilization arm of fraud-perpetrating ACORN for whom Obama canvassed in Illinois.

And that brings us to the less exotic, but far more routine, kind of election insecurity that plagues the country. Hardware and software will never be completely fail-safe, no matter where it originates. But it’s the people, personnel and voter registration and verification rules in place right here at home that matter most.

FACT: Over the past five months, investigative journalist James O’Keefe and his Project Veritas team have exposed systemic lapses at precincts in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Vermont and Washington, D.C. The ballots of famous public figures have been forked over to complete strangers; disenfranchisement of legitimate voters is routine. While Minnesota and New Hampshire legislators have passed new voter integrity/identification laws, O’Keefe now has been targeted for investigation and possible prosecution for blowing the whistle. And Attorney General Eric Holder is striking his usual see-no-evil, shoot-the-messenger, play-the-race-card pose.

The solution isn’t to sit back and bemoan a fantastical global conspiracy. The solution is to get off the couch, support election integrity activists like O’Keefe, and turn out in force on Election Day to eject Obama’s voter fraud coddlers. Like the old saying goes: If it ain’t close, they can’t cheat.

    All those internet, electronic, absentee voting, voter registration drives schemes are designed by the left for the sole purpose of altering election result in their favor. The solution is Simple, abolish all those cockamamie voting ploys. Make it two days weekend voting day, where anyone who wants can show up in a voting station and vote in person with a picture Id.

      I agree , but the Right does the same and you know it . For absentee voters , there should be verification to even get a ballot – that's fair .If you're overseas you'll have a passport and can go to the US Embassy to get your absentee ballot .

    PARTISAN PSYCHOLOGY:
    When pollsters ask Republicans and Democrats whether the president can do anything about high gas prices, the answers reflect the usual partisan divisions in the country. About two-thirds of Republicans say the president can do something about high gas prices, and about two-thirds of Democrats say he can't.

    But six years ago, with a Republican president in the White House, the numbers were reversed: Three-fourths of Democrats said President Bush could do something about high gas prices, while the majority of Republicans said gas prices were clearly outside the president's control.

    The flipped perceptions on gas prices isn't an aberration, said Dartmouth College political scientist Brendan Nyhan. On a range of issues, partisans seem partial to their political loyalties over the facts. When those loyalties demand changing their views of the facts, he said, partisans seem willing to throw even consistency overboard

    In most civilized countries and some third world ones, there is a document called IDENTITY CARD, having
    the bearer's picture, signature, thumbprint, issued by their respective governments free of cost to all of its
    people above the age of seven years. Needless to say, people are fully fingerprinted….
    In this country, it used to be the Social Security number and it still is and when stolen, it becomes one hell
    of a nightmare for its owner.
    Another form of ID is the drivers license, issued by every state but if the bearer doesn't drive, it is stated so
    showing it is good for ID purposes only and it costs an average of $16…sort of scratching your left ear with
    your right hand….
    Why hasn't Congress seen fit to enact as law the compulsory ID, charging the people its strict cost, doing
    away with voter fraud and leaving no room for Mr. HOLDER to raise hell because disallowing voting for
    people without proper ID will take away one hell of a lot of votes for the DEMOCRAP party ????
    What I still can't understand is why hasn't anyone in Congress, House or Senate, taken up this issue after
    so many years….
    Short of lighting a fire under their seats, what would force them to do it ?????

    • Ronald Johnston

      What would force their hand is to vote them out of office!!!!

    The entie thrust of the Democratic controlled party is to have people who are here illegally and
    ineligable to vote to go to voting places and vote, not hard to understand when you realize they
    are the left and completely, not partially but completely dishonest and subversive. Who votes
    should not be a question, citizens of age to do so and no others. Ther are millions of illegals
    who will vote in our election to throw the election to Democrats and the left gains and
    repays with our tax dollars in benefis which are helping to cripple the Nation financially.
    If a person can not identify themselves they should be thrown out of the building, also if
    they have a voter card but no ID and it is proved it was obtaind with false or no identification
    the issuer should be jailed along with the illegal………………………………William

    No wonder she was so positive about how great the voting process is going to be handled.
