MyRandomName: Mrtraveler01: SlothB77: Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election.

doesn't say if they were all obama voters or not, though.

19 votes? Well this would've sure changed the outcome of the election in Hamilton County!

100% of voter fraud is caught said the ignorant poster.


So how much voter fraud do you think really happens then?

Do you think it happens so often it impacts the outcome of an election?

Cagey B: 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.


LOLWUT?

So a little fraud is OK? Got it

o5iiawah: Actually, TFA mentioned that she voted for family members.  Voter ID would have prevented that.


Actually it wouldn't.  She was a poll worker in a position of trust.  And thats the thing - there are easier ways to throw an election by then getting someone to vote twice.  One of those is being a poll worker or in charge the election so you can shorten the voting cycle (see Florida).

/calling people to say their absentee vote didn't count is also useful
//so is putting up signs saying the election day changed
///and slashing tires
 
2013-02-19 02:19:51 PM
Don't absentee ballots get thrown out if there is a record of the voter voting in person?
 
2013-02-19 02:20:06 PM

tenpoundsofcheese: There should be no news articles much less prosecutions about anything related to election issues unless it is proven that something swung the election.


There absolutely should be prosecution. In this case and all others.

rufus-t-firefly: tenpoundsofcheese: rufus-t-firefly: tenpoundsofcheese:
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.

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

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


That is like saying the gun laws worked because we caught the shooter in CT.

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

No fraud is ok.

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.

At gun shows as well?


I've never been to a gun show here, so I'm not sure what the gun laws are in this area applying to gun shows.
The only gun show I have been to was in North Carolina, and at that time dealers were required to go through the regular channels to sell a gun, which required a permit from local law enforcement to be obtained by the buyer.

No this is an important story, because in the words of Free Republic she "looks like a likely Obama voter"


Or, rather, in her own words... she is an Obama voter?

Vegan Meat Popsicle: "I'm outraged, and every voter, regardless of their political affiliation, should be outraged,"

Twenty people are being investigated for committing crimes that appear to have had no practical impact on anything and they will, presumably, be charged and tried if sufficient evidence is found to warrant arrests.

What exactly am I being outraged about, again? That the system appears to be working as intended and some people who may have committed crimes may have gotten caught?

/ oh... right.... Fox News... everything is an outrage


Hey these are the same people who think that because ACORN reported all those fraudulent registrations that they were somehow responsible for them.

Congrats FOX News, after 4 years and a few months of Obama being in the White House, you finally found an example of Democrat voter fraud.

/Correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't these douchebags cool with voter fraud when it was James O'Keefe doing it?

We can easily fix the massive voter fraud with a tax cut for job creators.

You need to show ID for everything else, its just a natural progression. The idea that it disenfranchises people is BS. I bet they dont get disenfranchised showing ID to get their perscriptions or a bottle of booze. And before you start bellyaching about poll taxes, I have no problem with IDs being provided for free for people who need them. There are plenty of other freebies provided, whats one more?

That's cool.  So you don't mind your taxes being raised a little bit to pay for free IDs for everyone?  If Republicans were OK with funding the free IDs and raising the required taxes to do so, this would be a non-issue.

Onkel Buck: I have no problem with IDs being provided for free for people who need them.


Too bad this isn't being seriously considered.

Instead this stuff is coupled with other idiotic bullcrap like cutting the number of early voting days and the hours on those days in Democrat areas and increasing the number of early voting days and the hours of those days in Republican areas.

Lucky for me I live in a Republican area.

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.


Not really necessary.
Just get the list of people who voted at the polling places before you start opening the absentee ballots.

It seems to me in my state the dems are against it, but that may just be sour grapes. And would you need to raise taxes? Couldnt it be rolled into another freebie program like the phones? How much does it cost for a piece of plastic with a picture on it? Thats what I dont understand, groups can organize shuttle busses to the polls for people so they can vote, but they cant figure out how to get them an ID? Its a simple fix but it seems no one wants to take the lead on it
 
2013-02-19 02:41:43 PM

gingerjet: 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.


You are entitled to your opinion, but you'd be wrong according to Crawford Vs. Marion County.
The act of getting up out of bed, itself is a burden. The act of getting in your car or walking to the poll is a burden.  Filling in the blank is a burden.

The act of getting a free ID once every 10 years is not any more of an unreasonable burden than the act of voting itself.  Read what Justice Stevens (Who wrote for the majority) had to say about it.

I usually have to show ID just to get IN to a gun show.
And for each gun I own, I have had to show ID, which was then run through a national database. I have no problem with this, nor do I know any gun owners who do.

We absolutely need a voter ID system in place.

Onkel Buck: The idea that it disenfranchises people is BS.


That's literally what it's designed to do. The GOP knows they can't continue to win elections unless they change the rules, whether it be by trying to dole out electoral votes by congressional districts (which would make the votes of rural republicans worth eight to 10 times as much as liberal city slickers in purple states) or throwing up billboards to try to keep black people from voting.

By the way, can someone find me that story about the state that extended its residency requirement and then moved registration to within that many days of college move-in, in an effort to prevent college kids from being able to vote without driving back to their parent's houses?

The real problem is that the state would lose out on a LOT of money if they were to give out these ID's for free in addition to mailing them.

But yeah, one as-yet-unconfirmed (but likely) case of a few double-votes is justification for disenfranchising hundreds of thousands of people.

When white people get together and yell, it's called a "demonstration" until somebody dies.

Unless they're liberals, in which case it's a riot.
