From the DC Caller:
…In a story ignored by the national media, in April a Tunica County, Miss., jury convicted NAACP official Lessadolla Sowers on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers is identified on an NAACP website as a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee…
…Sowers was found guilty of voting in the names of Carrie Collins, Walter Howard, Sheena Shelton, Alberta Pickett, Draper Cotton and Eddie Davis. She was also convicted of voting in the names of four dead persons: James L. Young, Dora Price, Dorothy Harris, and David Ross.
In the trial, forensic scientist Bo Scales testified that Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes containing absentee ballots…
This is why we on the right want people to show ID when voting and why we want voter rolls purged of dead, moved or invalid voters. Doing so would make it exceptionally more difficult for a criminal like Sowers to operate. Naturally, our liberals are opposed to this for that very reason – if we make voter fraud difficult, it will impinge upon liberals’ ability to cheat.
It is my contention – backed up by the amount of research Matt and I did in writing Caucus of Corruption – that voter fraud is endemic to the Democrat party. It is not a bizarre event; it is not something which some times occurs in the heat of political battle…it is carefully organized and done in such a way that whenever a vote comes close, Democrats can count upon a pool of bogus votes to put them over the top. I believe that in all voting districts where Democrats have any sort of control, the cheating is systemic…even in areas where they are sure to win as a sort of “just in case” assurance.
This first came to my attention in 2000 when I got down and dirty in to Florida precinct returns and noted a bunch of precincts which had 90% or better turn out with 90% or more of their votes going for Al Gore. In the normal course of events, this just doesn’t happen…90% of any group more than a 20 simply cannot make it to any event (you’ll note this each time you set up a dinner party at your house) and you don’t get 90% of the votes going one way except when you’re cheating; there simply isn’t that level of unanimity in politics. You might get 90% voting in favor of motherhood (and that is a “might”), but outside of that sort of thing, people tend to disagree. This told me that a certain percentage of the votes being cast were bogus…and then I just paid attention since then, and noted it more and more often.
Dead voters, multiple registrations, illegal voters, ballots being “discovered” by Democrats in just sufficient numbers to put their guy over the top. Absentee ballots have become an especially strong tool for fraud (in my view, only active duty military, police, firefighters and emergency responders should be allowed absentee ballots…everyone can just get to the polls, or don’t vote). This conviction is just the very tip of a gigantic iceberg – quite honestly, we should investigate every race where the margin of victory was less than 1%…doesn’t matter who won, just investigate it…place the balloting under the microscope. I bet you’ll find questionable votes throughout the system, and I’ll bet almost all of them will eventually be traced to liberal persons and groups.
We must bring an end to this – and here’s how we do it:
1. Require all voter registration be done in person. No mail in registration, no people sent out in to the streets to collect registrations. If you want to register to vote, get yourself to a voter registration office, present your ID and some sort of proof of address, and register. Yes, this is a bit difficult…but voting is a responsibility as much as a right, and if you wish to exercise the right you’ll have to take the responsibility to get your registration done. All voters must register at least 6 months in front of election day in order to ensure that there is time for random registration checks to be done by election officials. All persons registering to vote must swear to their legal ability to vote and the correctness of the information provided on penalty of one year in jail for lying.
2. Require all voters to present their picture ID before voting. Once a person has voted, have them dip their right index finger in blue ink.
3. Voter rolls must be purged every other year. The voter registration bureaucrats must send out letter requiring a response from all registered voters. All letters returned or un-answered will result in that person being purged from the voter rolls. All voter rolls must be bounced against lists of convicted criminals and anyone convicted of a felony must be purged. All voter rolls must be bounced against a registrar of deaths since the last election and all deceased persons must be purged.
That would do it – we would ensure that almost all votes cast in any election would be legitimate. Do not tax me with whines about how this would be unfair to this or that voting group…first off, I don’t buy the liberal-racist view that ethnic minorities aren’t smart enough to register to vote and present a picture ID. Secondly, we must ensure that only those allowed to vote participate in our elections and that no illegal votes are counted. If we are to be a democratically governed republic, the security of our vote is an absolute requirement…and the need for integrity in voting trumps every other consideration.
Enough of this liberal voter fraud.
