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.

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.

Said it before, and I'll say it again.  The only reason we don't have anarchy is because of the mutual trust in the rule of procedure and law we all rely upon.  Incidences like this degrade that trust, just as conspiracists believe conservatives monkey with the voting machines.

What is so wrong about tightening up the entire process, from asking for a valid ID, to marking paper ballots that can be audited after automated tallying, to clamping down on unsupervised voter drives & absentee ballots?

We all have a vested interest in voting integrity--otherwise we're no better than some banana republic.

The people who are in control-- the corporations, the wealthy elite, the plutocrats-- They pick the candidates and they place them in position. They maintain the appearance of an election because it makes the people feel like they have some choice... some power. It's all bullshiat. The President is selected and appointed. Congress and Senate also enjoy that privilege. We have no choices.

OvenFreshJew: Because acknowledging the fact that Obama received 93% of the black vote in 2012 makes a person racist?


factcheck.org

The Democratic candidate has been getting the lion's share of the Black vote for awhile now. Acknowledging facts that have already happened is quite different than predicting future "likely" outcomes. Hillary Clinton was getting the majority of the Black vote in the 2008 Democratic primaries for most of the race--not Obama. If someone is projecting specific voting patterns based on general ethnicity alone that is indeed race-baiting at the very least. As often is the case, the more lazy the generalization the more racially encoded content will show up. There are strong sociological reasons in the U.S. for that.

That's literally what it's designed to do.

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?

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.

LOLWUT?

So a little fraud is OK? Got it

No fraud is ok.

The point is that saying "one person committed voter fraud so Voter ID" is needed is a silly argument to make.

BTW: This is the argument that Fox News is making

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.


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?

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.
