Those Democrats really suck at all that massive “Voter’s Fraud” they were accused of. Even in those states where the legislature created those new laws based on all that rampant ‘fraud” going on only to have the Courts shut them down.
Look at that Wisconsin, where there were all sorts of claims about massive fraud — so much so that even when the Supreme Court told them that their shiny new law could not be implemented, Scott Walker was able to squeak out a win 52.29 percent of the vote to the Democratic challenge of 46.57 percent.
It’s funny, but with this “huge” Republican mandate/victory/repudiation thing that happened this past Tuesday, True The Vote has managed to declare that they haven’t found any evidence of voter fraud.
A week before Election Day, the “voter integrity” group True the Vote released a new smart phone app to empower its army of citizen detectives to report suspected incidents of voter fraud and intimidation across the country, in the hopes of creating a real time record of all this massive voter fraud. They were finally going to be able to “pull back the curtains” on the case of voter fraud once and for all.
The app recorded eighteen incidents of voting issues. Most of those had nothing to do with “voter” fraud.
Eight were incidents of voting machine malfunction — which could simply be an innocent case of screen calibration, or something more nefarious such as ELECTION fraud. (a big difference from “voter” fraud, and one that True the Vote seems to be alright with)
One was a report of the disorganization in Hartford Connecticut where the precincts somehow “lost” their lists of voters.
Three reports were of suspected “voter intimidation” (a laughable complaint since TTV instructs their people on how to “intimidate” suspected people who are voting illegally). One of those reports was of a camera in a polling place (as opposed to an app that is set up to take pictures and video of suspected voter fraud?) One report was from an elderly woman to said she had her ballot “snatched” out of her hand when she was done with it, and MY favorite one — a Houston voter was very concerned about an “African American woman” who was standing nearby while she voted.
Only one app user reported a suspected case of voter impersonation — the main bugaboo behind restrictive voter ID laws — an Iowan who reported getting a call about a rejected absentee ballot despite never having submitted one.
Ironically, one report to True the Vote’s app chronicled a voter’s struggle with an overly restrictive voting law that True the Vote supports. An Ohio voter reported casting a provisional ballot because they had moved since last voting. This voter would have been allowed to cast a ballot if Ohio permitted same-day voter registration, a practice that True the Vote opposes. The voter reported that a number of others in their precinct were experiencing the same problem.
More proof that the fraud is NOT with the voters, but with those who want to monkey with the election process itself in order to change the outcome.
With the lowest percentage of voter turnout since the 1940s, the “mandate” or “repudiation” or “victory” the Right is now clowning around with is suddenly voter fraud-free.
Probably because most people didn’t bother to vote, and that most people probably felt that it didn’t matter who “won” on Tuesday, nothing was going to change.
