The Democrats' Election Forgery Racket

Comment

A few weeks ago, Obama senior adviser and seasoned Chicago operative David Axelrod joked on MSNBC about election corruption. Asked whether "vote early and often" scams had come to an end in his shady hometown, Axelrod snarked: "Well, certainly on the air." Yuk, yuk, yuk.

Behind the scenes, Democrats have been busy faking petition signatures, forging ballots and enlisting medical professionals to authorize fraudulent doctors' notes for liberal teachers-union operatives protesting Republican opponents. It's no laughing matter.

This week, four Democratic officials in Indiana were hit with felony charges related to petition fraud in the state's 2008 primary. The prosecutions are a result of the local South Bend Tribune newspaper's investigation last fall into "hundreds of county residents' signatures" forged on petitions used to put Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Democratic primary ballot. At least two whistle-blowing government officials came forward to expose the forgery racket, which court documents say was formulated by Democratic Party officials inside local party headquarters.

A veteran county Democratic Party chair, Butch Morgan, resigned in October over the scandal; three employees in the St. Joseph County voter registration office reportedly helped Morgan execute the scheme. Among the hundreds of unsuspecting residents whose names were illegally signed to the petitions: the prosecuting attorney in the case and a former Democratic governor of the state!

That's the audacity of ACORN-style hoaxes.

Without the phony signatures, there's a significant chance that Obama would not have qualified for the primary ballot — throwing the validity of the entire election into question.

Dr. Deb Fleming, the county's Republican chairwoman, told the South Bend Tribune that the Democratic machine has dominated her backyard for decades. "They have 'a culture of corruption' here and throughout Indiana. 'I'm sure there are other things. They've just never gotten caught,' she speculated. 'Because they've been in control of St.

Joseph County for so long, they felt they could get away with it.'"

It's a widespread culture of election corruption that has festered in Obama's Chicago, crossed into Indiana and bubbled up across the country.

On Tuesday, a New York judge set new trial dates for Democratic officials and political operatives accused of another ballot fraud conspiracy. A first round of prosecutions against Democratic Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough and his co-defendant, former Councilman Michael LoPorto, ended in mistrials last month. The two men also face separate voter fraud charges involving a plot by Democrats to win the radical Working Families Party primary back in 2009. The WFP is a front group for President Obama's dear old friends at fraud-plagued ACORN.

According to law enforcement authorities, the ring of Democrats tried to rig the primary election for city council and county legislature by forging absentee ballots and ballot applications to ensure that their candidates also won the Working Families Party primary line.

Fox News Channel investigative reporter Eric Shawn noted that a whistle-blower in the case, WFP employee Sarah Couch, told investigators that her bosses "asked her to issue a Working Families Party press release that would 'point blame at the Republican Party,' and she refused to do so." Another whistle-blower, Democratic operative Anthony DeFiglio, told police that "faking absentee ballots was a commonplace and accepted practice in political circles, all intended to swing an election."

Meanwhile, in Wisconsin, the state's Medical Examining Board decided last month to investigate 11 additional doctors for writing fake sick notes for public union teachers who ditched their classrooms to protest GOP Gov. Scott Walker. Nine other medical professionals have already received slaps on the wrist.

Primary petitions. Absentee ballots. Doctors' orders. Fraudulent signatures are becoming the signature of desperate Democrats who play the electoral game by one set of rules: By Any Means Necessary.

Yet, progressives in the media and White House continue to strike a see-no-election-fraud, hear-no-election-fraud, speak-no-election-fraud pose. And Team Obama's Axelrod supplies the laugh track. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Michelle, I'm sorry this was so outrageous I spewed my coke on my keyboard. I am from Florida, I lived through the blatant theft of democratic votes by the GOP, I watched Katherine Harris do everything she could to disenfranchise democratic voters through the whole process. I read about the boxes of uncounted democratic ballots found under church pews in Dade County. I watched a Republican Supreme Court elect a corrupt, incompetent president, who threw us into a war, pillaged the country, destroyed the economy, promoted torture, made us the laughing stock of the whole world, and destroyed international good will.

You have got to be kidding, anything you say is discounted as a shill for the extreme right, a party that would have you cleaning their house and unable to vote. They would take away your birth control, your rights, and hire you as their maid. The progressives fought for your rights so an asian woman could stand up and make a loud fool of herself. You would represent your own worst interests. That's how dumb you are.
Don't waste bandwidth by using anything Fox investigates to prove your point, Fox is nothing but conservative propaganda, there is nothing truthful, ever.

"Don't waste bandwidth by using anything Fox investigates to prove your point, Fox is nothing but conservative propaganda, there is nothing truthful, ever."

As opposed to the Jon Stewart show or SNL, which is apparently where you get your information?

I don't remember the last time I saw such a collection of bogus far-left talking points in one comment since the last time I visited the sewer known as the Dail Kos.

From wire services, 4/3/2012 concerning the phone call from Zimmerman to police:

The NBC edited "Today" show's versiom ran as:

"Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black."

The full and unedited conversation as shown on FOX ran as:

"Zimmerman: This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about.

Dispatcher: OK, and this guy - is he black, white or Hispanic?

Zimmerman: He looks black."

NBC has admitted to editing the tape and apologized.

Which network chose to lie in this instance? Why would NBC edit the truth? Are they a shill for the extreme left? There are false idols all around us, even die hard devotees should be able to admit as much. Will the die hards be able to admit that in the post-modern world the truth is fungible? Will they have to look up "fungible"?

It doesn't hurt to ask. Might hurt to give honest answers. No namecalling, now, keep it civil as you demand from others.

The columnist is outraged at improprieties committed by Democrats, Ms Bloom outraged at improprieties committed by Republicans. Rightly so. Our frustration and seeming impotence to be able to change anything has us fighting about the veracity of those doing the reporting. Sad. Sad. It seems dishonesty and greed is no respecter of political parties, so why are we the people shouting at each other for the actions committed by corrupt politics in both parties?
I'm a Democrat, every time I learn of evil doings by Democrats, it sickens me. I will stand next to any Republican and demand we prosecute and let justice and the people be served. If Republicans did the same, stand with Democrats and help prosecute the bad seeds in the Republican party, well, one can only dream of a united America. Before pointing a finger at a politician in one's own party, one first has to admit they were wrong. How many have the courage to admit they were wrong, then the fortitude to follow through and prosecute one of their own?

Re Bloom Hilda
Your rant against a non-white woman that dare be conservative reeks of the liberal outrage, absent facts or reality that amazingly, remains effective on millions of people who apparently simply believe the tripe.
In one sentence you threw a host of insults and non-truths with, " I watched a Republican Supreme Court elect a corrupt, incompetent president, who threw us into a war, pillaged the country, destroyed the economy, promoted torture, made us the laughing stock of the whole world, and destroyed international good will."
A Republican Supreme Court? And here I thought they were judges that were charged with being the last decision on US law. I'm thinking you feel the Supreme Court that heard Roe v Wade was a perfectly neutral court?
GW Bush corrupt? Not a single fact will you find.
Threw us into a war? Really. Can you spell 911? And when you go after his Iraq decision, rememeber Democrats in Congress supported it (including Hillary), and they are the ones that had all the information at the time. That... you see... is a FACT.
Promoted Torture? I see you've read your MoveOn.Org e-mails. There's is Zero evidence that Bush did anything except lead the nation to defend against yet anoter attack, and his leadership allowed the eventual capture of the #1 terrorist (and many others). Further and relevant, the men you declare were tortured do not believe you even have the right to breathe and spent their waking moments attempting to bring that to pass. Are you taking notes. Those are facts.
Laughing stock of the world? OK. Let's review reality. America got attacked in a way that no other president has ever had to handle. GW Bush stood up and led this nation to hunt down the dogs that did it. You want laughing stock. Try a US president bowing to a Muslim leader. It was embarrassing to me and most people I know. The terrorists probably have the clip on their cell phones for a chuckle on command, and recruiting tool.
International Good Will? Grow up. The president of the US is responsible for ... wait for it... The US! Bush, however imperfect, understood this and was strongly declaring that the attack had consequences, and it did. And Barrack was more than happy to take the credit (although I don't recall him sharing it with GW Bush). And while Obama bowed to Muslims, and apoligizes to countries that are NOT our friend, he insults Israel who is by far our most ardent friend in the region. Now... telll me again about good will. Nevermind... don't.
And that was just one of your sentences. So many more insults and incorrect statements and hypocricy to address, but here endeth this lesson.
After re-reading your post, the 2 facts I found (presumably) are that you are from FL and you spewed Coke on your keyboard.
I look forward to the new conservative populus to finally make obvious the bullying tactics of 'get back on the reservation". And Michelle is one of the brave that defy the bigotry of the left. I trust she continues the good work.

I couldn't agree more.

I really am getting tired of hearing "The other side did it too!" in response to whatever the latest political scandal is.
