Comment on Entry: Vote tampering in Florida, authored by Ron Hebron
1. Trying to spread the corruption from the bowels of King County to FL. I'd like to see if it has any effect or even produces a backlash in FL, with more voting Republican. Chalk it up to former ACORN cronies of BO.

If the GOP gets into power in the Exec. Branch, how will they prosecute future voter fraud ? Could there ever be a bipartisan Voter ID law enacted ?

7. Could it be McCain/Palin with a sour grapes neener-neener effort to get back in the limelight. Or, could it possibly be Monica Lewinski. Only THE SHADOW knows!
Hey one is paying attention to us any more. :)

8. Duffman,

If you are referring to leftist trolls, I doubt anyone misses them, although their mindless stupidity can be entertaining at times. Nah....forget I said that.

OCTOBER 24, 2012 -NEWS ALERT: GOP and Dems agree -- Fraudulent letters bad
This just in.
Democrats agree with Republicans that the letters sent primarily -- but not entirely -- to Republican voters in at least 28 Florida counties is a bad thing.
Republicans can relax. Earlier today, they put out a release condeming the letters, which started arriving Friday in envelopes with Seattle, Wash. postmarks.
"This type of activity is not only disgusting, it is criminal, and must be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," said Lenny Curry, chairman of the Republican Party of Florida in the release. "I call on Florida Democrats to join me in condemning this false letter writing campaign that appears to target likely voters in Florida, and help RPOF get the word out about this false campaign."
Sure enough, the Democrats agreed.
"We join with the RPOF in condemning this voter suppression activity from an unknown source out of state," said Scott Arceneaux, executive director of the Florida Democratic Party. "Furthermore, we hope the involvement of the FBI and state law enforcement officials will put a stop to this activity so it comes to an immediate conclusion."
Although some Democrats and voters with no party affiliation have received the letters (in Pinellas, of the eight who received the letters, only four were Republican) state elections officials say that the vast majority of the recipients so far have been Republican, frequent voters, and in some cases, prominent.
How prominent? Former U.S. Ambassador John Rood received one. So has Jacksonville City Council President Bill Bishop. And, amazingly enough, so has Curry himself.
Clearly the intent of the letter is to intimidate the recipient from voting. The letters are written to make it look like they came from the recipient's local supervisor of elections office. They are instructed that their citizenship has recently been called into question. The letters inform recipients they have 15 days to fill out a voter eligibility form and return it to the county elections office. If they don't, they'll be removed from the voter rolls. If they vote and they aren't registered, the letter warns that spending time in jail is possible.
If voter intimidation is the aim, why, then, would the letters be sent to voters like Curry and Rood who clearly know they are registered to vote?
Perhaps that's what investigations by the FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will find out. Stay tuned.

11. @10 - Because the Democrats are not as smart as they think they are. Do you have anything else to throw against the wall to see if it sticks ?

12. Leftists cheat and lie. When you have an ugly ideology that is about vilifying and taking from the productive, you've got no choice but to lie, cheat and disguise.

Too many in swing states have discovered that Hope and Change is a dud, and so Leftists are scrambling.

Hopefully next month when their benefactor is sent back to wherever he came from the lazy left will be forced to look for honest work. We cannot afford to pay them a trillion (borrowed) dollars a year to sit on their a$$e$.

14. It looks like the Obama campaign is trying desperately to steal the election in Ohio, because if they lose Ohio, they LOSE !
The article below is clear on what is going on there. Stay vigilant...

Smells like voter fraud by Democrats in Ohio

15. Speaking of voter suppression, why was there no clamor from the liberal media that Obama had to show ID when voting early in Chicago? Everyone "knows" those laws are only in place to keep the minorities from voting!

This may only be a Chicago law as I couldn't find anything about required voter id when I searched at the Illinois State Board of Elections website.

Wed October 24, 2012 FBI joins probe of bogus vote purge letters from Seattle

TAMPA, Fla. - The FBI is joining an investigation into bogus letters sent from Seattle to many Florida voters that raise questions about their eligibility to cast ballots. Tampa FBI chief Steven E. Ibison said Wednesday the FBI will focus on letters received by voters in 18 counties in central and southwest Florida. State authorities have received reports of letters in at least 23 counties. The letters claim to be from county supervisors of elections but were all postmarked from Seattle. They raise questions about the voter's citizenship and appear intended to intimidate people.

18. I strongly believe in smaller limited government but it's past time for either/and/or our federal and/or state government to work on mandatory voting standards to curb this nonsense.

Do I know the answer? Nope.
But I do know vote by mail encourages fraud.
I do know touch screen voting has problems substituting candidates names.
I do know chads hang.
I do know motor voter registration, last minute registration and welfare registration leads to fraud and, worse, lying about eligibility and intent to vote to get the welfare.

It's time we all get off our collective lazy butts, sharpen our pencils and check in down at our local polling places and vote the way voting was meant to be.

If you care enough to vote, if you care enough for your country and the consequences of your vote, you should feel privileged and grateful to have to put a bit of effort into it. It's time the privilege to vote means something again.

19. Voter suppression from the Democrats! Why do they always accuse others of what THEY in fact are doing?

20. Florida voter registration lookup, voter registration, voter statistics. ... Voter Registration as of: 10/26/2012 Republican: 4,250,874 Democrat: 4,789,898

With this evidence in hand, one might ask why Democrats would try to suppress the vote. I also noticed that you did not mention that Democrats received the mailings as well.

My next step is to determine if the areas where the mailings were sent were primarily Republicanist or Democratic.

22. @ 21:

That's probably because they're so busy filling out ballots for illegal aliens, double-voting college students, convicted felons and the dead.

23. @21,

methinks they are awaiting new talking points so they can blame this all on the VRWC, ala Hillary and Bubba circa 1996.

24. Florida Voting has always been suspect since the 2000 'Selection' in which Gore was cheated by Bush.
Compare that to the good Government voting policies over the past ten years,especially here in King County.
As an educator I deal in facts.

26. Every time the DSHS caseworker comes out to check on my 33 year old son (He has the faculties of a 1 year old, no communication skills even at the lowest level.) they want to make sure he is registered to vote and leave a registration form. I don't know if this is legal, let alone ehtical. I will check back for comments. Sorry, kind of off topic, but relevant? Thanks

27. "Compare that to the good Government voting policies over the past ten years,especially here in King County."

In 2005, King County was rated as the 3rd most corrupt county for voting in America after the 2004 election. It may have improved, but a measure of improvement will be if Rob McKenna is our next governor. If that occurs, then King County voter integrity will have noticeably improved since 2004.

As an educator, you deal with the WEA and the Union thugs and tow their line. You deal with the facts like Obama does -by being a provaricator. You gave us a big LAUGH there...

30. The simple fact is that the best election stealers are right here in Washington and the Democrats know it. Gregorie's election was a classic theft that really got the attention of the national party and when Franken got in trouble, who did they invite? Why, the same guys who did the Grogoire thievery. The Demorat election crash team hopped a red eye to Minnesota and the same tricks and tactics were employed. To nobody's surprise, Franken won.

The DNC won't make the same mistakes in Floriduh that they made during Gore/Bush. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the same destroyers of Democracy were at work from here. It all makes perfectly good sense to me. When you need the best, get the best and that means a phone call to Seattle when votes need to be fabricated and "lost".

31. The latest, reason for cautious optimism !

"According to the latest Rasmussen state polls, Mitt Romney is in position to win the presidency; he should win at least 279 electoral votes. Romney leads in Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Colorado, and New Hampshire; Obama leads in Nevada. Wisconsin and Iowa are tied. Were Romney to win both Wisconsin and Iowa, he'd secure another 16 electoral votes, putting him at 295 electoral votes. By way of contrast, George W. Bush won 286 electoral votes in 2004."
