I'll say it again; if the GOP cared about stopping actual vote fraud they would only have to clean their own house.

But everything they are doing is clearly- and I mean fu*king crystal- about disenfranchising voters. They have even said so.

Why they aren't being called to the mat about it loudly in every goddamn media publication in the country baffles and infuriates me.

If you call them out, you aren't being Fair and Balanced. There must be a Democratic equivalent to everything the GOP is doing. That's why they say Obama needs to release his college transcripts while explaining decade-old comments about redistribution.

Oh, those wacky Republicans. Pushing voter-ID laws on an "anti-fraud" argument, even as they're in favor of voter fraud when it benefits them...

I've said it before, and I won't STOP saying it until they quit proving me right: "Republican" is completely synonymous with "hypocrite" now.

Every bad thing Republicans say they want to stop is what they intend to do. "We're passing laws to stamp out voter fraud" means "We're rigging elections to commit voter fraud."

Same with all the boolsheet during the run up to the convention. Changing the qualifying rules, refusing to seat delegates, not allowing RON PAUL to speak unless he endorsed Rmoney. Now, they want Paulaneers to fall in line and vote Romney.

Ain't farking happening. Not a chance in hell.

Registration fraud, not voter fraud, and I hope the Democrats don't try to attack on this because it just leaves them open to rebuttals about ACORN.

You know, I figured this article would actually be about a firm tied to electoral fraud, not voter fraud. But son-of-a-biatch, it's really about bona fide voter fraud.

Entirely different kind of registration fraud, the kind that leads to disenfranchisement, versus Acorn's registration fraud that led to... I'm not actually even sure what ACORN's fraud was suppose to have led to.

They're looking at demographic trends and realizing this election is their last chance to seize power with the base of support that currently drives the party. Arizona is a microcosm of the situation. Get what they can while they can.

Electoral college polls show Obama can now win even if all states that are statistically tied are excluded. This is happening a couple weeks earlier than it did in 2008.

The only way Republicans have a chance now is voter suppression and anything they can do to make the vote NOT reflect the will of the electorate.

ACORN was victimized by registration fraud. It never committed it.

Hm, I thought voter fraud never happened?

So, when you think Republicans are attempting fraud, it exists. But when states try to pass voter ID laws, suddenly voter fraud doesn't exist.

LOL.

You can't expect them to win by popular vote..

That's a consistent point of view: Republicans want to have their way even though a majority is against what they want.
 
2012-09-27 12:17:53 PM
The whole harping about ACORN and Democratic voter fraud has lead to a situation where some Republicans feel they need to fight fire with fire - the only responsible action in a situation where Democrats are cheating is to cheat yourself.

This is like church members who in their battle against Satan, the Great Deceiver, feel they have to lie in order to protect their religion.

If you live in Michigan you have one week left to register to vote

You, friends, family, goddammit, get them registered. And figure out where your new post-GOP-gerrymandering polling station is.

Yeah, that's some of the Grosse Pointes and Pontiac in the same effing district. All to f--k Gary Peters, really. Brilliant. I'm sure whoever wins there will be able to adequately represent that disparate population well.

And fight these disenfranchising f--kers.

Exactly, show me the memo that said ACORN orchestrated registration fraud. Oh, some of their workers did it independently? CONSPIRACY!

Just a question or two:

When you hear reports of dozens of dead people still on the voter rolls, what do you think?

When you hear about non-citizens on voter rolls, what do you think?

When you hear about people voting in two different states using absentee ballots, what do you think?

I seriously would like to know. These things could mean voter fraud that is bad for BOTH parties and the integrity of elections. So why are Democrats the only ones who try to get in the way of cleaning up voter rolls??? Sorry, but to me it just appears as if you WANT fraud to happen. What else am I to think???

Similar boat, plus I actually AM Irish. I used to be OK with voting for a Republican on local levels, always thought 'well, they're not so bad on the local level, federal though...'. Not anymore. I won't ever vote for anyone who aligns themselves with the Republicans as they are now.

Yep.

It seems that to be considered part of the "Liberal Media" and the conspiracy against conservatives, media outlets just have to report what Republicans say and do.

Way to post half the story, genius. When Florida tries to purge THOUSANDS of names when only a few hundred are probably warranted, what does that TELL YOU?

Seriously, don't cherry pick information in here. This isn't Fark, for godssakes.

When I hear that I understand that there is a lag between a person being declared dead and being struck from the voter rolls.

The best I could figure is that ACORN submitted voter registrations that were clearly faked by the folks filling them out, ya know as required by law. However, ACORN went above and beyond the law by actually flagging the registrations that looked made up (ie. Mickey Mouse, Colonel Mustard) for the Secretary of State.

For this, ACORN was accused of "voter fraud" or more correctly, whiles still being wrong "election fraud"

Bob: "Um, what?"
Alice: "The nut-kicking hooligans! They run around kicking people in the yambag! They must be stopped! There should be a law against running!"
Bob: "Er, do you have any evidence that this is happening? I mean, I've never heard of anybody just running around kicking people in the junk."
