Peter von Nostrand: busy chillin': TFA headline asks "6 times?"

Articles states "twice"


This sh*t ain't cool, but why use derpy hyperbole? Oh yeah, clicks, ratings and outrage.

Pretty sure Trollmitter has outed himself in the comments already


well, I meant the actual Fox "News" article. Of course Farkers gonna troll, but the media should be bett hahahaha

Onkel Buck: I keep being told voter fraud doesnt happen. Its the voter suppression we are supposed to worry about.

/Showing ID would fix both but thats too hard


If you provide the ID's free of charge, there would be no controversy. But obviously the GOP is against that for some reason.

For the benefit of those like tenpoundsofcheese, a little history...

Southern Democrats (who were the ones who denounced Brown) are now Republicans. The two parties started switching sides during the Great Depression. Know the expression 'Dixiecrat'? They left and went GOP because of things like Brown. The rest left when the Civil Rights Act became law. Republicans prior to accepting these racist nutjobs were actually what they now claim to be (but aren't); fiscally conservative and not terribly concerned with social issues. They mutated into today's craven, callow party when they adopted the Southern Strategy in the wake of Goldwater's crushing defeat by Johnson in 1964. All of this is why the tired lines about political affiliations during this time (MLK was a Republican! Democrats are racist!) are not true anymore. It's also why today's GOP has absolutely no business invoking the name of Abraham Lincoln as an inspiration, considering that he was *extremely* big government focused and actually did some social engineering.

If you buy all of this warped pseudo-history that is being peddled, you either don't know the history or are trying to put one over on your opposition. Stop farking with history. Only losers do that.

tenpoundsofcheese: DamnYankees: Ok? Charge her with whatever that crime is and give her the appropriate punishment. Do we need Fox News articles for every crime?

Oh look, someone all butt hurt because *gasp* the news is covering a story about a crime.

Let me guess, you only want the news to cover stories about Kim and...wait for it...newsflash...Fergie is pregnant!  Wowie.


which one?

TFA says three more ballots came from her house in her handwriting, plus she voted in person and voted for her daughter.

I need to figure out how to be a poll worker, I sat in a 2 hour line that was so stupid, they were pulling people with last names below a certain letter ahead of people who had been waiting hours. Everyone was moving in slow motion and seemed to have no cares in the world.

Great, so apparently our systems for catching voter fraud are operational. Remind me again why we need voter id laws?
 
2013-02-19 02:08:01 PM  
Did Republicans finally find a real case of voter fraud?

Maybe its that .000001% that costs them every election.

Snowflake Tubbybottom: I was told this never happens.


She got caught though.

But you're right, she single-handedly stole Ohio from Romney.

FTA:   She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks.

And she did a bad job at the whole track covering part.

And yet, even without a voter ID system she's being investigated. It's almost as if the current laws work.

Now, if we require you to show ID for all gun purchases - well, that's just a horrible infringement on your rights.

Right?


In my state, I have to show an ID to buy a gun. I also have to show an ID to vote. It has not stopped me from doing either.
 
2013-02-19 02:08:33 PM  
"There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud," she insisted.

Well, OK then, nothing to see here, I'm good with this explanation.

That's the REAL fraud!

How did the current system work if she voted 6 times?


Because she has apparently been caught. Assuming that she did, of course.

And, again, why would you need to show photo ID to vote if you don't have to do so to buy a gun?

sh*t! I got to her quote saying twice and then the republican guy being outraged and closed the window. missed those others. *shakes tiny fish*
 
2013-02-19 02:11:36 PM  

quatchi: Richardson claimed she had submitted an absentee ballot, but was afraid her vote would not count so she also voted in person. She also said she voted in the name of her granddaughter and yet another person.

"There was absolutely no intent on my part to commit any voter fraud," she insisted.

*facepalm*

If she actually did this and said this throw the book at her.

Twice.


It's the same rationalization that lets people shop for someone else and use the absentee's food stamps.

As for her voting twice, it's due to the same thing that makes people push elevator call buttons repeatedly:  lack of faith in "the system."

tenpoundsofcheese: Interesting comments about some events in 1957
"Republican platform had expressly endorsed the Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education. The Democratic platform did not.
To the contrary, that year, 99 members of Congress signed the "Southern Manifesto" denouncing the court's ruling in Brown. Two were Republicans. Ninety-seven were Democrats. "

feel safe now?


Then the 60s happened.

Johnson made a big fuss about civil rights and Nixon came along with his Southern Strategy and all them old Yellow Dogs now bark a different tune.  But, brother, we had your back in 1957!
 
2013-02-19 02:13:13 PM  
If she did it, she should be tried and sentenced according to the laws of the state.  I don't see why this is such a huge issue.  People from both sides have committed election fraud before.  I fail to see why this is something particularly newsworthy.  19 people in a county of how many thousands did this?  It's kind of a non-issue, imo.

Highroller48: The plural of Anecdote is Data


That's actually true.  Data is a collection of individual anecdotes.  It may be skewed data, depending on how carefully the anecdotes are chosen, but at it's heart that's what polling is:  The collection of anecdotes.
 
2013-02-19 02:14:10 PM  
Sorry FOX News haters, but I heard about it on an ABC affilliate first way back last week and severl times since. For those who think that the alleged perps should go without any punishment if it is proven that they did commit fraud, how about you just get hit and run by a driver and the DA just lets him/her walk free?
 
2013-02-19 02:14:11 PM  

Mrtraveler01: If you provide the ID's free of charge, there would be no controversy. But obviously the GOP is against that for some reason.


Offering IDs free of charge still wouldn't resolve an issue.  You still have to travel somewhere (which could take a half day in many remote locations) and provide further documentation such as a birth certificate to get an ID.  Many elderly people don't have a copy of their birth certificates (especially men and women who are black).  So they need to request one - and every state charges a fee for that service.

All for something that does nothing to prevent vote fraud.  As evident by this article.
 
2013-02-19 02:14:12 PM  
She is stupid and she did a stupid thing. She should be prosecuted.

Onkel Buck: I keep being told voter fraud doesnt happen. Its the voter suppression we are supposed to worry about.


Well, looks like one Fox News article detailing an alleged single instance of it has proven systematic voter fraud exists, just like it does in your retarded oppression fantasies. That sure showed reality.

Actually, TFA mentioned that she voted for family members.  Voter ID would have prevented that.
Voter ID cant prevent people who vote absentee and then go back and vote in the flesh.  That is why absentee ballots need to cut off a week or so before the general election.  Anyone who votes twice, gets both votes scrubbed.

Who is saying there is no voter fraud?

All we're saying is that it doesn't happen so often that it impacts an outcome of an election. Romney lost by way more than 19 in Hamilton County.

So unless you have proof that voter fraud is so rampant, it actually impacted the outcome of an election. Then I don't see the need for Voter ID.

Ever ask yourself why you have to show an ID?  Its almost always to protect something or someone else.  Not you.

/showing an ID to buy liquor doesn't prevent liquor sales to minors but to get the local DA elected for being "tough" or something
//showing an ID to get on a plane does thing to prevent plane hijackings but prevents grey market sales of plane tickets
///can go on for hours

You're not homeless living off the streets with no money in your pocket to pay for said ID, nor pay for the documents required to get said ID, (birth certificate) nor do you have a problem with the other documents which require you to have a valid mailing address to get said ID (utility bills are the most common used in Michigan).  Therefore, I would not expect that you would have a problem doing either.  For those people that don't have a home, who don't have money to buy their birth certificate and who don't have utility bills or other documents showing a valid mailing address, I would expect their story to be somewhat different.  Does that mean they should not have the right to vote?

I'm fine with the prosecutions. I just don't see the need to revamp our whole election process for something that doesn't even impact an election.
 
2013-02-19 02:18:39 PM  
Democrats are the masters of crooked elections and always have been. With problems this widespread, either you have to have another election, or an automatic removal from office. We just can't have illegitimate, non-democratically 'elected' pretenders in this country making policy. With only a slim 51.1% of the popular vote, and all of the usual cheating by Democrats, there is no way that Obama was legitimately elected.
