Election Fraud

Well, Ryan, it seems even your own professed Church sees the problems with ACORN:

Catholic Church cuts off ACORN funding

And in other election fraud news, there seems to be a highly anomalous statistical situation going on with the Al Franken and Norm Coleman recount in Minnesota:

Wall Street Journal: Franken Stealing Election
Wednesday, November 12, 2008 10:22 AM
By: Jim Meyers


Democrats won the White House and increased their majorities in the Senate and House, but “some in their party wouldn’t mind adding to their jackpot by stealing a Senate seat for left-wing joker Al Franken.” That’s the thrust of an editorial in Wednesday’s Wall Street Journal about the race between Franken and incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman in Minnesota.
On the morning after Election Day, Republican Coleman led Franken by 725 votes. By that evening, his lead had shrunk to 477, and as of Tuesday, the margin was just 206 votes. Every day the democrats find "a few more ballots that forgot to be counted".
“This lopsided bleeding of Republican votes is passing strange considering that the official recount hasn’t even begun,” the Journal observed.
It’s not unusual that state officials, in double-checking the initial election results, would find and fix errors. What is unusual is that 99% of “fixes” have gone in favor of Franken.
In one case, Minnesota’s director of elections announced on Friday, three days after the election, that she had forgotten to count 32 absentee ballots in her car.
In Two Harbors, a liberal outpost near Duluth, Franken picked up an additional 246 votes, while none of the other contests in that precinct recorded any changes in their vote total.
“According to conservative statistician John Lott, Mr. Franken’s gains so far are more than 2.5 times the corrections made for Barack Obama in the state, and three times the gains for Democrats across Minnesota Congressional races,” The Journal reported.
The newspaper notes that the post-election process is being overseen by Democratic Secretary of State Mark Ritchie, a close ally of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), “of fraudulent voter-registration fame.”
Franken and fellow Democrats are now pushing to turn what should be a straight-forward recount of existing legal ballots into a “complete do-over,” pressuring election officials into accepting tossed ballots, according to The Journal, which concludes:
“With their party only three Senate seats from the 60 needed to break a filibuster (and two still not decided), Democrats have a political incentive to cut corners to steal a seat if they can get away with it…
“If Minnesota wants to retain its reputation as a state with clean elections, it needs to run an honest recount.”


And even DEM-leaning newspapers are starting to see what is going on. This from the Star Tribune in Minneapolis-St. Paul:

Could Senate recount referee’s résumé color the result?
By KATHERINE KERSTEN, Star Tribune


Let's assume the 32 disputed ballots in Minneapolis were legitimate. Let's assume the newly discovered 100 votes in Pine County -- all for Al Franken -- were just overlooked by a sleepy official, and the 100 votes found in Mountain Iron -- again, all for Franken -- were valid.
Let's suppose the trickle of votes moving inexorably in Franken's direction is just a function of a normal process, as Secretary of State Mark Ritchie's office assures us.
One fact remains troubling. The referee in Minnesota's hotly contested Senate race must act in a nonpartisan fashion, yet Ritchie came to office through a nationwide partisan strategy. He was elected in 2006 as part of a national campaign to ensure that Democrats could wield influence in precisely the sort of hair's breadth race we now have here.
Ritchie gained office with the help of the Secretary of State Project (SOS), an independent 527 group co-founded by former MoveOn.org leader James Rucker. SOS is based in San Francisco, and is funded in part by ultra-liberal kingmakers such as George Soros.
Why would Left Coast liberals take such a keen interest in a Minnesota state office?
In 2006, USA Today gave us the answer in an article headlined "Top vote counter becomes prize job; Democrats focus on key state post."
Secretary of state positions are a "new front" in the "battle for political control," the paper explained, because they are "the obscure but vital state offices that determine who votes and how those votes are counted."
"National Democratic groups ... are pouring resources" into secretary of state races in key swing states, in order to enhance their control in future tight elections, said the paper. Minnesota was one of the top six states targeted.
Ritchie was the SOS poster boy, and SOS co-founder Becky Bond took credit for his victory.
"Thanks to SoS Project donors, Minnesota's Mark Ritchie -- a true champion for democracy -- was able to defeat a two-term incumbent republican [sic] by less than five points," she wrote on the SOS website. "We helped close the gap and make the difference with cable television ads targeting women and seniors."
"I want to thank the Secretary of State Project and its thousands of grass roots donors for helping to push my campaign over the top," Ritchie wrote.
Along with Ritchie, SOS-supported secretary of state candidates won in Ohio, Iowa, New Mexico and Nevada in 2006. "Dollar for dollar, our model was one of the most effective political investments in the cycle," Bond wrote.
On the day before last week's election, the respected on-line journal Politico predicted that these SOS victories would bear fruit this year. "Democrats have built an administrative firewall designed to protect their electoral interests in five of the most important battleground states," Politico said. As a result, they are now "in a more advantageous position when it comes to the interpretation and administration of election law -- a development that could benefit Barack Obama if any of those states are closely contested."
That advantageous position could also benefit a Democrat in a pivotal Senate race, they might have added.
Ritchie said in an interview that he will be impartial in the Coleman-Franken recount. "Just two months ago, we ran two really great primary recounts, and I'm looking forward to the four recounts coming up," he said.
Thus far, Ritchie has shown no evidence of misconduct. But many Minnesotans are questioning the openness and transparency of the vote tally that just ended.
"The process must be above reproach," said Rep. Laura Brod, R-New Prague. "So far, that's not the case."
Brod points to Ritchie's criticism of Coleman for raising questions about changing vote totals. "Any candidate would have questions when tallies shift as they have, and Ritchie's one-sided criticism was inappropriate," she said. "It suggests a partisan tinge that does not assure confidence by either party."
Will our closely watched Senate contest result in more votes found in odd circumstances, or will it be a model of nonpartisanship? It's too soon to tell. What we do know is that the referee in the contest appears to be wearing the colors of one of the teams.


Curiouser and curioser... but I am sure there are plenty of people who will look the other way, because all that matters is Obama is in charge (well, not yet) and the Dems will lead us into socialism...errrr.... "save us".

...could Dems really win?

George Soros Funding Al Franken's Recount Efforts
Thursday, November 20, 2008 12:03 PM
By: Jim Meyers


Left-wing billionaire George Soros is hosting a fundraiser on Thursday night to help Democrat Al Franken win the recount in Minnesota’s Senate election.

The gathering at Soros’ Manhattan mansion will raise money to help Franken’s recount.

“The special guest: Al Gore, who knows a thing or two about recounts,” the New York Post reports.

Republican Sen. Norm Coleman leads Franken by just over 200 votes at last count, out of 2.9 million cast. The results of the hand recount are not expected to be released until mid-December.

Earlier this year Soros’ fortune was estimated at greater than $9 billion.


Question from a confused citizen: Why do funds need to be raised to "help" someone "win" a recount?

Shouldn't we simply be re-counting the votes that were already cast? Or is the unspoken implication here that "more money from George Soros will ensure that the 'right person' (from the liberal left, no less) gets the senatorship"?

Moreover... I never thought Al Franken was terribly funny to begin with. So does this mean he will go from being an ineffective comedian to an ineffective US senator???? If his past record is any indication, the answer is yes.

Let's take a peek at the kind of BS that is going on in Minnesota with the Coleman/Franken re-count.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,470892,00.html

How anyone could look at some of these ballots and "determine" that the voter really meant to vote for Franken is beyond me! What is even more suspicious to me is just the number of ballots which seem to have "problems" that require "interpretation" only with the voter's selection for the US Senate race. Immediate red flags go up for me.

Am I honestly to believe there are this many clueless voters out there who don't know how to mark a ballot unambiguously? And then, not only to believe there are this many clueless voters, but also that the majority of these clueless voters only seem to have trouble designating their vote for Coleman or Franken. If anything would look like a tactic born of ACORN, I think this kind of crap would be it!

And here we are again...while the MSM was all over Florida back in 2000, why is it that more media outlets are not screaming bloody murder at the blatant inconsistency with which these "Canvassing Boards" are applying their rules for voter intention???

Here in sunny Florida we should be known as the land of voter fraud. We've had the "hanging chad", massive voter recount efforts, insidious sign pillaging, various forms of vote buying, numerous lawsuits, arguments over the lack of polling places(as well as changing them and not notifying anyone), and known felons running for office. And that's just on the local level.
It's such a regular part of the landscape here that it's almost taken for granted(rarely makes page one). The last scandal that garnered any attentioon was an RV shyster who literally forced his employees to make campaign contributions for which he reimbursed them. WE know how to rig elections here inn Tampaland.
