Political WTF

How do we get off criticizing the voting process of other countries when we can’t seem to keep our own house in order? We’ve got frequent voter registration fraud documented and have people charged and convicted of committing such fraud. We have cartoon characters registered to vote. We have massive numbers of dead people registered to vote, and some of them are voting. We have felons registered to vote and also voting, and we have lots of non citizens registered to vote. One presumes that they register to vote because they intend to vote. We also have politicians who are campaigning to have the rules changed to explicitly allow illegal immigrants to vote.

Wikipedia has a good description of Electoral Fraud

Voter Registration Fraud

“Are Mickey Mouse and Mary Poppins registered to vote in Nevada? In a Las Vegas courtroom last week, prosecutors found the fictional characters not guilty but convicted those impersonating them of voter fraud.”

“ACORN pleaded guilty to unlawful “compensation” for registration of voters, a felony under Nevada law. The plea came after senior ACORN executives Amy Adele Busefink and Christopher Howell Edwards were convicted of providing cash bonuses to voter-registration canvassers for exceeding daily registration quotas. Campaign workers received cash if they registered 21 voters or more. Fittingly, the Las Vegas-based program was called Blackjack.”

Those who claim that ACORN was never associated with voter registration fraud are incorrect. Here is a case from Wisconsin

More about the woman from Wisconsin lying to the court. Her plea for sympathy which gained her probation was BS

“Significantly, this is the first time ACORN itself, as opposed to its individual employees, has been convicted of a crime. The fact that the nonprofit entity was found guilty strongly suggests that ACORN’s ambitious voter-fraud schemes were sanctioned at the highest levels.”

Examples of Dead People Voting

http://ballotpedia.org/wiki/index.php/Dead_people_voting

“When the Poughkeepsie Journal in New York did a 2006 analysis of how names of deceased people were still on New York’s official list of registered voters, it conducted the assessment by matching “the names, dates of birth and ZIP codes of all listed voters in New York’s database of 11.7 million voter registration records against the same information in the Social Security Administration’s ‘Death Master File,’ a database of 77 million records of deaths dating to 1937.” That study resulted in a final estimate of as many as 77,000 dead people on its rolls, and that as many as 2,600 of them had cast votes from the grave.”

“In October, KTVU Channel 2 cross-checked California’s state death registry record across voter lists in the nine Bay Area counties, finding that in eight elections in the last ten years, “232 people with death certificates had voted after they had died – some more than once.” 153 of these cases were from one county, Alameda. Karin MacDonald, the director of the Election Administration Research Center at UC-Berkeley, said “Probably what we’re looking at is a lot of administrative error. There may very well be someone in there that somebody has voted for. Absolutely.””

“Election officials in Connecticut removed names from the state’s voter rolls after journalism students found that thousands of dead people were still registered to vote. After conducting their own investigation, students at the University of Connecticut said this spring that about 8,500 dead people remained registered to vote. The Connecticut Secretary of State worked with local registrars to remove more than 5,200 of those names from the rolls. The deaths of about 1,300 people on the students’ list could not be confirmed, though they were moved to the “inactive” list. But 45 of the “dead” voters were actually alive. That highlights the balancing act undertaken by state officials, who recognize the potential for fraud when dead people remain registered to vote, but must also ensure that eligible citizens are able to exercise their right to vote.[3]

Illegal Immigrants Registered to Vote

I’ve read claims that illegal immigrants avoid voting. If that is true, why do they register to vote? Seems to me that you would only go through the trouble to register to vote if you intend to vote?

October 7, 2008 Study claims over 300,000 illegal aliens may be registered to vote in Texas

Regarding the 300,000 Illegal Immigrants who may be registered to vote in Texas, why does the Democratic party seem to assume they are Democratic Voters? After all, President Bush Jr, and Rick Perry have done very well courting the hispanic vote in Texas

Some Politicians Want Illegal Immigrants to Vote

Potentially Huge Number of Non Citizens Voting

Whether illegal immigrant or not, non citizens are registering to vote in large numbers. One would presume that they are registering to vote because they are planning to vote.

“In 2005, the U.S. Government Accountability Office found that up to 3 percent of the 30,000 individuals called for jury duty from voter registration rolls over a two-year period in just one U.S. district court were not U.S. citizens.”
