During one of my more heated exchanges with the liberal NIRFTA folks at CPAC I was asked if I believed that three million voted illegally last time around and tried to refer them to this piece on the subject. But at Granite Grok they noticed another source of shall we say interesting votes

Eleven out-of-state UNH students were arrested Wednesday 02/23/2017 on criminal mischief charges during the Patriots over-celebration. I checked the Durham voter checklist today for coincidences and had six coincidences pop up.

Garrett Colantino, 22, of Reading, Mass. – A Garrett John Colantino is NH voter #300469904

Elizabeth Connolly, 19, of Dorchester, Mass. – An Elizabeth Mary Connolly is NH voter # 300469921

Sophia Benedetti, 20, of Danbury, Conn. – A Sophia Marie Benedetti is NH voter # 300471995

Jean Douglas, 19, of Canandaigua, N.Y. – A Jean Riley Douglas is NH voter # 300467558

Reid Shostak, 19, of Augusta, Maine, A Reid Quin Shostak is NH voter # 300437735

Michael Barbieri, 19, of Newton, Mass. There are TWO! One is a NH voter. Checking police records. For one of the two middle names I have. I will have birth dates shortly. The week is young.

It’s even more fun if you extrapolate the math out

Since UNH has about 10,000 students and about half are out-of-state tuition kids, this random sample provided by the Durham Police may indicate, statistically, that we have a number to work with if we want to measure non-citizen voters. Just for arguments sake, how about 2,500 just from UNH.

Stuff like this is one of the reasons why the MSM never interviews Ed Naile or any of the Grok team on the subject.  They know too much, have written about it too long and backs up what he says

And while I wait for my helpers to dig up birth dates on the Durham coincidences I will use resources I have to see if any of these coincidences voted at their legal domicile the ones they gave the Superior Court and Durham Police. The one on their driver’s licenses. The domicile they pay out-of-state tuition fromwhere they are liable for state income taxes, etc.

Maybe I will go to Concord and see if I can get them all a NH fishing license. Oh, wait. You need a valid NH ID to get a fishing license.

Yet you don’t need one to vote in the state.

If you wondered how Hillary managed to hold NH and why Kelly Ayotte is not still in the Senate, now you know.

One of the things about training and experience as an engineer and a love of history is you get a delightful combination of mathematical, logic and access to the thoughts of some of the greatest people who ever lived in history.

And while these great minds over the course of thousands of years might not be as sharp enough to help me perceive the extra 30+ and growing genders that a person like this one, this one or even this one they have made deductive reasoning pretty straightforward.

Which brings me to this story (via Pat Dollard):

 

The little-noticed Hispanic survey was conducted in June 2013 by McLaughlin and Associates to gauge the opinions of U.S. resident Latinos on a wide range of issues.

Inside the poll is a page devoted to voter profiles. Of the randomly selected sample of 800 Hispanics, 56 percent, or 448, said they were non-citizens, and of those, 13 percent said they were registered to vote. The 448 would presumably be a mix of illegal immigrants and noncitizens who are in the U.S. legally, such as visa holders or permanent residents.

(emphasis mine)

Two things jump out at me 1st the fact that the poll is “little known”, that’s important.

One of the things about a completely politicized society is that things get spun, if a set of data is collected under the radar, away from various activists groups looking to spin it. For example this 2003 CPAN broadcast concerning that year’s survey drew a whole 25 views.

As a rule it’s pretty tough to claim the fix is in when something been going on for decades and you haven’t been complaining about it, thus there will be some problems if the left wants to pooh pooh it.

The second important thing highlighted is the percentage of people admitting that they were registered to vote, it’s significant because it’s very illegal and yet 13% were willing to admit doing so.

This suggest that the actual number is higher, perhaps much higher as people generally don’t like to admit to crimes (particularly things that might turn out to be federal offenses) to a bunch of strangers.
this
But for the sake of argument consider these numbers correct as they are and ask yourself this

What’s 13% of 30 million?

If 13% of Illegal immigrants admit to being illegally registered to vote that’s 3.9 million people.

Remind me how many fraudulent votes did President Trump claim were out there?

A lot more than these people managed to turn out: “Not My President” Protests Across Country Fizzle

The protests which promised thousands failed to produce mass amounts of protesters. There was no cohesive message, just a general tone of disapproval towards a president who has only been in office one month. This “resistance” movement might lend itself more credibility if they centered around a particular policy or even waited until Trump has done something worth protesting. Alas…

More importantly the USA today report said “thousands” not “tens of thousands” or “Hundreds of thousands” but “thousands” NATIONWIDE.

In other words for a protest held in a country of 324 million where tens of millions of people voted for someone else organizers of this protest couldn’t even get ten or twenty thousand nationwide on a national holiday during school vacation week

Put simply there are a lot less of these protesters than they and the media pretend to be, in fact based on this poll I suspect the number of Illegal Immigrants voting illegally outnumber them by the hundreds of thousands (dare I say millions?)

You may not like that conclusion, it may make you angry or in the modern parlance “trigger” you, but in the end the math is the math, as any good engineer will tell you.

Pre-post update: Population of Knoxville over 180K

“Forty minutes after it began, less than 10 people had attended Monday evening’s ‘Not My Presidents Day’ protest in Market Square in Knoxville. . . . The event consisted of five or six people arguing with a lone Donald Trump supporter.”

I know that’s a red state but even if Trump won the city 70-30 that’s over 50,000 potential protestors.

Hillary Clinton was in Texas for a couple of days last week. If she is the Democratic for president in 2016, she will not win the Lone Star State. Nor will Martin O’Malley, Lincoln, Chafee, or Bernie Sanders. Why was she there? To raise money in America’s second-most populous state. But to counter that criticism she used some of that time in Texas to criticize voter registration laws in states with Republican governors. “What is happening,” Clinton said, “is a sweeping effort to disempower and disenfranchise people of color, poor people and young people from one end of our country to another.” She also posed this question: “What part of Democracy are they afraid of?”

Clinton went on to admonish states that have tweaked early voting laws–but neglected to mention that her adopted home state, New York, does not permit early voting.

Oops.

Later in her address she complained about “fear-mongering” on a “phantom epidemic of election fraud.”

One of the GOP governors she singled out was Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who signed into law a bill that she claims curtails the ability for college students to vote. Watch this Project Veritas video where and Obama for America worker tells a collegian to vote twice.

You can learn more about massive vote fraud in North Carolina here, in Illinois here, in Florida here, and in Minnesota here. I could go on and on.

Who does not think that one illegal vote is one too many?

Hillary and other Democrats become unglued when the subject of photo ID voting laws comes up–as they claim minorities are less likely to possess picture identification. Many of the states that have photo ID voting laws allow for those who wish to register to vote to qualify for free government-issued ID cards. Oh, isn’t it condescendingly racist to claim that minorities for whatever reason can’t manage to obtain a photo ID for themselves?

But Hillary can’t run on her record, which includes decades of scandal, the Benghazi murders, and her disastrous “reset” with Russia. And she has more skeletons in her closet than you’ll find in the catacombs in Paris.

That means we’ll see more demagoguery from Clinton.

Illinois BlagoBy John Ruberry

In his 35-year public career, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn has carefully developed a persona as one of the few honest politicians in a state that has seen four of its last eight elected governors serve time in federal prison.

When he faced the voters four years ago, Quinn, who twice was the running mate of jailbird Rod Blagojevich, encountered daunting odds as he sought to earn a full term as governor. He utilized that persona to deflect the Blago stench. But the Great Recession hit Illinois harder than most of the other states–as it does now, the Prairie State had billions in unpaid bills.

Quinn’s 2010 GOP opponent, downstate state senator Bill Brady, ran a weak campaign and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory–losing by 30,000 votes, even though otherwise it was a fabulous year for the Illinois Republican Party, flipping four congressional seats and snatching Barack Obama’s former Senate seat.

Gov. Pat Quinn,  (D) Illinois
Gov. Pat Quinn,
(D) Illinois

But “Mr. Clean” Quinn had a couple of jokers in his 2010 deck of cards. The Chicago Democrat lied about the rate of the income tax increase he favored, and as I explained in a prior post on this blog, one month before the election, Quinn commenced the Neighborhood Recovery Initiative, an anti-violence program that turned out to be nothing more than a political slush fund to drive up the November vote for Quinn in heavily Democratic areas such Chicago and parts of its Cook County suburbs. Cook was one of four counties that Quinn won in 2010, Brady prevailed in the other 98.

The NRI is now the subject of a federal criminal investigation.

And not only did Quinn lie about the rate of the income tax jump he sought to pay off the old bills that I mentioned earlier, but he said the hike enacted would only be temporary–now the phony-reformer now wants to make that increase permanent. The Democratic supermajorities in the General Assembly, which exist only because of the grotesquely gerrymandered 2011 remap signed into law by Quinn, balked at Quinn’s expensive request this spring.

John "Lee" Ruberry
John “Lee” Ruberry

As for the 2014 race, Quinn has managed to find a couple of more joker cards. He signed into law an Election Day registration bill that applies only to the November general election. The same legislation dispenses with the need for a photo ID for early voting. Illinois has a long history of vote fraud, most of it involves Democratic politicians. And playing to the White House’s imaginary War on Women by conservatives, Quinn approved an advisory referendum asking voters if they believe employers should cover birth control in their employee health insurance plans, which is nothing more than a fawning attempt to drive liberal activists to the polls.

Yet there is one card that Quinn can’t use with voters this time around–an honest reputation.

While everyone is talking Syria an interesting video concerning the recall elections of the gun grabbers in Colorado:

Warner Todd Huston describes the scene:

In the video you see Democrats being accused of stuffing the ballot boxes with perhaps hundreds of illicit ballots dropped off when the election itself is supposed to be a walk-in vote only with only “hardship” ballots mailed in or dropped off early.

Hat tip to Ben Howe

I think the absentee ballot system is the easiest way to fix an election. What’s to stop a union guy leader from putting a ballot in front of someone and saying: fill this out and vote it or no work for you. How do you prove it?

Anyone surprised at this simply hasn’t been paying attention, Warner isn’t surprised

Figures, doesn’t it? Thieves and crooks will never change their spots and you can’t be a Democrat without those indelible spots in full bloom.

Gotta admit it the timing is smart for them, the whole country is looking elsewhere.

What if they should find a leader? What shall we do then.

General Burgoyne The Devil’s Disciple 1959


Ulrich’s discovery of guts is cause for organization wide concern

Daredevil Comics Born Again 1986

As we get closer and closer to election day (or should I say the day when the votes are counted since early voting has started in some states) there has been a small tremor that lately has gotten less and less press both in Massachusetts and nationwide. That is the effect of citizen activists taking an interest in the vote.

No I’m not talking about the activists that the Democrat party funds via Government Largess via Unions etc such as Neighbor to Neighbor in Worcester and ACORN who like the machines of old are tasked with providing the vote totals the left needs by shall we say , all necessary means. I’m referring to the grass roots tea party folk whose involvement in electoral politics is cause for organization wide concern for the left.

When the large tea party groups held their rallies in Washington, while there was some surprise there was very little worry on the left or the media. After all annually the March For Life protests was (and still is) the largest protest in Washington and the MSM has successfully ignored its numbers to the point where the hundreds of thousands of people who participate might as well be invisible. The left was sure they could count on the MSM to downplay the numbers and effect of these crowd.

But something different happened when the tea party folks made it home. Something the left did not suspect.

Our friends from the left, so used to their own paid protesters and rent-a-mobs, assumed that once there was a picture for the media to see people would simply fade away until the next media opt.

Then never imagined that without the pay from a large organization that people might actually get involved.

With Scott Brown’s victor in January of 2010 came the first actual shock to the left, the idea that there might be something going on here. 10 months later the results of the house elections gave the left another huge shock. 63 seats worth of shock.

In Massachusetts the left woke up in time for the election. The hand that they had kept behind their back because it wasn’t needed was brought out. The left and the union had people all over the state, making sure the Bay State remained solidly in the “D” Column.

The left breathed a huge sigh of relief in the state figuring this was the high water mark for the right.

Then came the official loss of an electoral seat, then came the retirement of Barney Frank,

and then came people like Bonnie Johnson a tea party activist who started delivering some startling news concerning the law in Massachusetts:

Every January Massachusetts Cities and town send out a city/town census to every residence. It lists the registered voters in the dwelling and how they are registered. I’ve filled it out every year without a thought, not noticing the warnings on the form if it is not done.

I had filled out the form for years not thinking a word about not realizing its significance

If the form is not returned the people on them are marked as an “inactive” voter. By law an “inactive” voter who attempts to vote must fill out and sign a form and provide proof of both residence and identity to be able to vote.

The law had been on the books for a long time but when you never have contested elections nobody really cared about it, she visited tea party groups in the states and delivered the message:

The problem seems to be a lot of people are not aware of the law, and if you want it enforced you need people at the polls volunteering and working to ensure it IS enforced.

The results have been training session that taught people what the rules were and how to be sure they were enforced while poll watching, at the time I asked Bonnie Johnson how this works:

DaTechGuy: Now how would the poll worker know that it’s an inactive voter is there like an “I” next to it someplace?”

Bonnie Johnson: There’ a lower case “i” next to their name.

DTG: Now is the poll worker required to demand this or does an observer have to bring this up from your experience?

BJ: The Poll worker should demand this.

DTG: So if the poll worker doesn’t demand it, if you are an observer you can say “This person was inactive, you are required to do this.”

BJ: Correct.

DTG: And this is by state law?

BJ: Absolutely.

But nobody had been enforcing the law, why bother? the elections in Massachusetts were as contested as elections in Iraq during the Saddam era, but now you have people being forced to enforce the law with the following result

BJ: In Worcester 99,000 voters 46% of them became inactive when they did this.

Remember Worcester is the 2nd biggest city in New England Behind Boston and Scott Brown lost the city by just under 2000 votes out of 38,282 cast. The number of now inactive votes exceeds the total number of votes cast in the 2010 special election. In Boston Scott Brown lost the city by 38 points. Just under 60,000 votes. Imagine if you are a democrat poll and a well funded Scott Brown campaign has poll watchers in every precinct who KNOW THE RULES.

What might happen, stuff like this perhaps?

Fast forward to this year’s state primary election, held on September 6, 2012. Countercharges, of voter fraud and “voter suppression,” were levied by and against Worcester Tea Party observers on that day. Worcester Tea Party members say that they observed people being escorted into the polling precincts, again by Neighbor to Neighbor wearing their purple shirts. In addition, allegations of voters showing resident alien – green cards – as identification were witnessed. The observers tried to document this and were thrown out of the polling location, they would say illegally, for doing so.

City officials, led by Councilor Saral Rivera, stormed into the voting precinct to allege voter intimidation by the neutral observers, to the Democratic primary. Numerous hearings have been held by both the City Council and the Election Commission to determine what happened on that day. As the New York based newspaper up the street’s editorial board has said no credible evidence has been presented showing voter intimidation. So far little evidence has been found that the Election Commission has refused to call for a formal investigation.

And when the author of this piece Rob Eno of Red Mass Group tweeted out things like this

And you saw angry tweets like this one from SEIU people in reply:

oh Harassing it it? Well if those tea party folks were harassing people instead of making sure the law is obeyed I’m sure the Worcester Election commission dominated by democrats would demand an investigation to make sure voters aren’t being intimidated….

The Election Commission is holding off, at least for the time being, on calling for a formal investigation into allegations that some observers violated the rights of voters during the Sept. 6 state primary.

But…but the harassment, the intimidation of minority voters, surely the people victimized by these scurrilous actions complained. Surely groups like Neighbor to Neighbor being community organizers devoted to protecting the rights of voters have submitted this information to the city or the state…

it was pointed out that no formal written complaints or affidavits have been filed by any poll wardens or aggrieved parties with either the Election Commission or the secretary of state’s office.

..or not.

No complaints, no affidavits no sworn statements? If this is true the question is WHY?

I suspect the answer is closely related to a question I asked a few weeks ago concerning the left’s complaints over voter ID laws in Pennsylvania:

Why should producing an ID change the result of any election?

Why should the use of an item needed at any bank, to cash any paycheck or government check, to use a credit card, an item you are asked to produce at a hospital, at a supermarket or even to buy booze cause the results of an election to change? Do Democrats need these ID less that republicans?

The answer is simple. There are no affidavits because those would be declarations made under oath that would have to be defended in open court. Just like showing an ID or filling out an affidavit for a provisional ballot would be a declaration under oath that a voter is who they say they are and live where they say they live.

In a federal election that’s a federal offense.

In 1941 Lyndon Johnson ran in a special election for the US Senate, his primary opponent was the sitting Governor Pappy O’Daniel. Johnson campaigned hard (nobody worked harder at campaigning than Lyndon Johnson) and was not shy about stealing or buying votes either, but Johnson make the fatal mistake allowing some of his “owned” precincts report early giving O’Daniel the ability to know how many votes he needed to steal/buy/fix to win this election.

Robert Caro in his first volume on Lyndon Johnson “The Path to Power” told of Johnson’s reaction on page 739:

Johnson’s reaction was to try to steal it back. Telephoning George Paar, he asked the Duke of Duval to give him more votes. But Parr Refused; he later told friends he replied “Lyndon, I’ve been to the federal penitentiary, and I’m not going back for you.”

The left can bluster, they can scream and they can cry, but as long as there are tea party people watching, as long as the activists are ready and educated on the law, as long as campaigns like Scott Brown has the money to make sure that any person trying to cast an illegal ballot. (or should be call them undocumented ballots) will be challenged and subject to the full penalty of the law then those who have been unchallenged for years will think long and hard before they take that risk.

THAT is why the left is fighting so hard, THAT is why there is worry, that is why we are reduced to polls like Sunday’s Columbus Dispatch suggesting somehow Mitt Romney with 90% of the GOP vote and with 40.8 of the independent votes vs 41.7 to Obama is somehow down by 9.

And it’s also why they are not covering what the Tea Party is doing as Glenn Reyonlds reports:

the mainstream press isn’t very interested in covering this kind of thing anyway. Stories about Obama grassroots organizers in 2008 were fine. Stories about the Tea Party organizing this time around would conflict with the preferred (if somewhat contradictory) narratives that the Tea Party is (1) just a bunch of billionaire-funded astroturf; and (2) a preserve of racist “bitter clingers” who are too busy digging for Obama birth certificates to engage in hard political work.

Either way, these kinds of initiatives will make a difference. The question, again, is whether they’ll make enough of a difference.

That is the big fear, what do you do if there is a pool of activists not controlled by a major party, a group that you can’t office political goodies to in the hope they will simply go away?

You can’t do a damn thing about them, you can holy hope to outwork them with your paid guys.

That’s why I’m still very confident in saying this:

“Ride right through them, they’re demoralized as hell”!

And if you think they are demoralized now, wait till AFTER this election.

Update: Oh BTW here is a bit of news that you might not have heard:

A Commonwealth Court judge said Thursday that he was considering allowing most of the state’s controversial voter identification law to remain intact for the November election and was contemplating only a very narrow injunction.

Judge Robert E. Simpson Jr. said at the end of the second and last day of a hearing on whether to halt voter ID requirements for the Nov. 6 election that he was considering an injunction that would target the portion of the law that deals with provisional ballots.

You can tell what the folks at Philly.com think of it by the title in the link…

articles.philly.com/2012-09-29/news/34149464_1_voter-id-law-id-on-election-day-disenfranchise

Yup I trust these guys for clean unfiltered news.

I can not see how in the name of sanity I am included in this poll.

If I win it can only be due to the power of the fedora (or vote fraud) because based on the photos my wife’s vote is for Stacy McCain.

Update: I don’t know what is scarier, the fact that I’m now just a few votes behind Stacy (who is 4th) but that I actually received e-mails from listeners asking for the web address so they could vote for me.

When I left the house to run an errand and have a bite with the wife the word had just come out that Prosser was up by 40 votes:

Incumbent Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice David Prosser took a 40-vote lead over challenger JoAnne Kloppenburg, according to new totals released Thursday afternoon.

Kloppenburg had been leading by 204 votes, but newj unofficial totals reported in Winnebago County show that Prosser received 20,701 votes to Kloppenburg’s 18,887.

My first thought was that a certain law blogger was suddenly going to have a change of heart when it came to vote fraud. Ann Althouse agreed:

I wonder if the concept of fraud is suddenly much more appealing to certain people.

Now I come home after picking up the kid from his college course and WOW:

A conservative-leaning Wisconsin county on Thursday corrected its count and gave an unofficial 7,500-vote lead to the incumbent in the hotly contested state Supreme Court race seen as a referendum on Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s divisive union rights law.

Waukesha County Clerk Kathy Nickolaus said the votes weren’t reported to The Associated Press on Tuesday due to “human error.”

“This is not a case of extra votes or extra ballots being found,” she said. “This is human error, which I apologize for.”

Ann Althouse quotes herself:

UPDATE, 11:43: Dane (Madison’s county) is nearly all in. I don’t see how Kloppenburg can net more than about 3,000 with what’s left of Dane. Waukesha is now shown as completely in, but the numbers didn’t change, so I think something may have been misreported. I took the trouble to do a calculation and was going to predict that Prosser would net 40,000 more votes in Waukesha. What happened?

Jim Hoff is crowing. I suspect the left must be both devastated and suspicious. If I was on the left I would have raised eyebrows too. As a rule when you are stealing an election you don’t do it by “thousands” after the fact (too dramatic) , but I can’t see how the left can’t be thinking something funny is going on..

This is what is so ironic, in my opinion thanks to that error, the people who wished to say tweak the election reported the numbers that they did when they did in order to bring their candidate just over the line.

If the correct numbers had been reported the first time then I suspect we’d still have counties out to allow for further necessary “corrections”.

Michael Moore says we shouldn’t because Klop had already declared victory, I kid you not:

Want a laugh? Check out Michael Moore’s Twitter feed. He’s upset that the counties are conducting a canvass — you know, to make sure that the votes actually get counted correctly — because, er, “Kloppenburg has already declared victory! Repubs in WI r behaving like sore losers.” No, this is not a parody account, either, although it’s hard to tell.

And apparently the best part is that the presser announcing this took place just as Chris Matthews was droning on about Klop’s victory. Mary Katherine Ham owns the best line:

Small, state-wide election with vital national implications soon to have no national implications whatsoever.

Looking at left leaning sites and the sudden respect for “now-discredited allegations” in comments has been fun, but the most fun I’ve had is looking at Rick Hansen’s site who just this morning said this:

While the fraud allegations remain stuck in the public’s mind, no proof of any systemic fraud has been unearthed. Instead, close examination of elections show, time and again, that our election systems are not perfect – but this is due to human error and not fraud.

His site links to this Media Matters piece with a fun title:

Predictable: Right-Wing Media Respond To WI Supreme Court Election With Baseless Voter Fraud Allegations

There has been no update, I wonder if they still consider fraud charges “baseless”?
As for Hansen he says this:

Here’s what I expect: With Prosser in the lead, the claims of fraud on the Republican side will stop. The Democrats will not raise claims of fraud even if they contest the election.

UPDATE: I already may need to take back the last part of this post: looks like Dems may soon start playing fraud card in WI Sup Ct race, focusing on the clerk who found the lost votes.

I give him credit for not changing his own opinion but I disagree. I still think those fraud charges need to be checked out properly and completely. I think a complete recount needs to be done even with a 7000 vote margin, after all that is still only 1/2 of 1% of the total vote certainly close enough to be worthy of scrutiny. Fraud isn’t wrong only if an election is stolen, fraud is wrong because it is FRAUD. We need to smoke it out now so that when things are close enough to make a difference those who would commit it will think twice. And who taught me that? Why Tip O’Neill:

People used to talk about Mike Ward and his Chinese hat trick. The story was that Mike would hire ten Chinese men, pay them each five dollars for the day (this was in the 30’s & 40;s when that was good money btw DTG) , and have them vote repeatedly under different names. Each time they came to the polls, however they would be wearing a different hat, the idea being that to Caucasians, all Chinese people looked alike.

With the help of Mike Ward, Walter Madigan pulled a few fast ones, such as using the names of people who hadn’t voted, and voting the dead…

O’Neill still won that race by about 400 votes but he was mad and decided to do something about it.

As soon as I returned to the state house I filled a bill that anyone caught repeating in an election would be given an automatic 1 year jail sentence. Getting that bill out of committee was a cinch, because who could dare oppose it? Privately, however, some of the members let me know how disappointed they were, a that they hadn’t expected I was the kind of guy who would rock the boat. But I didn’t like people stealing elections –and I especially didn’t like people stealing them from me! The bill passed easily, and that particular brand of corruption virtually disappeared from Massachusetts.

The time to smoke this stuff out is NOW while we have the win, investigate the lot, we will look magnanimous doing it with a lead because I suspect that the left can’t stand the heat and if we catch them on this now we won’t have to worry about it later.

And frankly if there is anything funny on our side, it SHOULD be exposed. I want to win, but I want an honest election first and foremost.

Update: Funny because it is true:

Reader Stu Wagner writes: “My suspicious, cynical side says that the Republicans delayed the full count to flush out any Democrat tricks. God bless ‘em, I hope they’re just that smart.” I’d be very surprised if they were that smart. . . .

So would I Glenn, so would I.

Update 2: Stacy and Ace are feeling good and Tom is just loving that Media Matters has confirmed there is no vote fraud:

And, of course, we are all relieved to know that Media Matters has already cleared up any idea that there was any voter fraud in this election. So there can be no doubt Conservative Judge Prosser won. And that he will also be the one to decide if the Republicans acted properly in passing the law limiting the Public Union’s collective bargaining privileges.

What a nice birthday present for Nice Deb.

Well it’s been 48 hours since that last post I’m sure it’s was just a blip on the scene of the national election:

Thirty-four more people will be charged with voter fraud in Hennepin County in the 2008 election, County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Tuesday, bringing the total cases of alleged abuse to 47 for that election year.

Freeman’s office announced the decision a week after the county sheriff announced voting-related charges against seven people, most of whom are accused of registering to vote while ineligible

Minnesota, wasn’t that where after court cases and recount after recount democrats managed to find enough votes to elect Al Franken?

And anyway this is an old case just as this one is and anyway just because one teachers group knew about a stolen election doesn’t mean they are still stealing them does it?

There also seem to be some “interesting” people working on it:

its voter drive is being run by Amy Busefink, an ACORN employee under indictment in Nevada for violating election laws. It might be understandable for an employer not to fire an employee until she is actually convicted of a crime, but this is ridiculous. Busefink should not be running a voter drive.

Busefink and another ACORN employee, Christopher Edwards, were charged with by the state of Nevada with “26 felony counts of voter fraud and 13 of providing unlawful extra compensation to those registering voters.” Edwards pleaded guilty and the trial of Busefink and ACORN is set to begin November 26.

Just because they were doing something shady in the past, doesn’t mean shady things are being done now does it?

Why would a campaign chair and a state-dem committee volunteer take out a Post-Office box to collect completed absentee ballots? Wouldn’t it be cleaner to distribute them however the dems wanted to, and then to have them mailed directly to the elections folks? One less set of fingerprints to suggest chicanery.

Why would a woman on the dem mailing list, who tossed every letter telling her about getting an absentee ballot from these folks, subsequently learn that an absentee ballot was issued in her name?

Pennsylvania eh quite a coincidence all this isn’t it and of course there is the background video on the stomping stuff that the left pretends doesn’t exist.

And in California some longtime lawmakers seem rather ignorant of the law:

Make sure to read the letter, which promises students “extra credit” and credit for fulfilling “class volunteer hours” — and recommends that government and social studies teachers share this video with their students:

the letter is here and perhaps in pre-internet days it would escape notice, but now there are groups watching for fraud.

But will all of it stop the Big Red Wave? ?Well in some states maybe, but I suspect there are certain districts that have fallen so far under the radar that the left may not realize they need stealing.

I’ve been telling anyone who would listen that people simply don’t understand how but this is going to be, I still get people dismissing me, saying I don’t have hard numbers just the anecdotal evidence and simple logic (such as the fact that a guy actually up 11 points doesn’t do a 180 on taxes).

Does this mean that Delaware is going red and that Calif and NY gov races are still in play. I’d bet against NY myself, but it means that it is going to take a whole lot more than a last-minute frat party to save this election for democrats.

Update: And more
