Obomination: The Left Responds to Vote Fraud Investigation by Denying Vote Fraud Exists
Prosecutors in St. Joseph County,
Indiana are now currently investigating what appears to be a concerted effort of forging
signatures to get Obama on the primary ballot.
The question must be asked: Was the person now in office really even supposed
to be on the ballot?
Instead of confronting this serious
concern and supporting reforms at the polls, the left proceeds to flat out deny
vote fraud exists.
The National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a report this week
claiming that there were “a grand total of nine suspected fraudulent votes”
over the last decade. A mere 9.
Well, the Republican National
Lawyers Association (RNLA) researched this issue too. Guess how many states have had
vote fraud issues according to a brief survey by RNLA. 10? 20? Try
46. (Note that the RNLA did not try to
find all instances of vote fraud, as our blog tracks that on an almost daily
basis. Rather, the RNLA sought to research how many states have problems with vote fraud.)
These are not unsubstantiated
reports; a federal, state or local criminal prosecutor actually charged each of the individuals listed with a crime such as absentee
ballot fraud, impersonation fraud, double voting, felon voting, noncitizen
voting and vote buying.
The vote fraud deniers often
derive their research from the Brennan Center, which published a poorly researched paper by Justin
Levitt. Upon reading these papers from
the NAACP and the Brennan Center, one wonders if the authors ever cracked open
a newspaper in the last ten years. In addition to vote fraud cases, charges and
years, the RNLA website often link to news articles from papers across the
Then again, the reason for the
shoddy research might be that the Brennan Center staff is reading The New
York Times. Last month, The New York Times editorial page
editor dared twitter followers to offer
him any examples of vote fraud but concluded that we “Haven’t gotten any.”
Here’s some news for the Times:
Forty-six states have charged individuals with vote fraud in
the last decade. This is not a thing of the past or
something that only a few encounter. This is a problem that affects almost the
entire country today. The RNLA is a
small group without the resources of the NAACP, The
New York Times, or the Brennan
Center. If they looked, they could find
vote fraud across the country, as the RNLA did in just a limited survey.
Obama’s party and his administration
have launched a wide-scale assault on necessary electoral reforms like voter
ID. Obama called voter ID laws a “big mistake,” and the Justice Department
pledges “aggressive” scrutiny of laws which actually are constitutional according to the
Supreme Court. And the DNC Chair, former
President Clinton, and Jesse Jackson have all compared such laws to racially discriminatory laws of the past, such
as Jim Crow and the poll tax.
The NAACP report also claims that “the risk
of voter fraud appears to be little more than an after-the-fact rationalization
for discriminatory laws.” They claim there’s a hidden agenda, but it seems like
ignoring vote fraud is a convenient way to let it continue.
Someone’s a fraud here, and it’s not
those calling for open, fair and honest elections now.
