#RWNJ Echo Chamber Sides With Voter Intimidation
You’ll be pleased as punch that the voter fraud problem in the US has been finally been reliably validated, so radical steps can now be taken to prevent Democratic voters from electing their illegal Kenyan Muslim Atheist usurper of a black president.
A national voter fraud watchdog group announced Tuesday that it has uncovered at least 31 cases of absentee ballot fraud in New York and Florida — a finding the group claims is “just the tip of the iceberg.”
31 cases of absentee voter fraud? In just two States? OMG.
Wait, how many voters are there in those two States?
Florida - 11,583,367.
New York - 11,477,613.
From a total of 23,060,980 potential voters, they claim 31 illegal votes. That’s .000134 percent.
Before I get called for being unfair, let’s compare the actual votes during the 2008 Presidential election.
New York - 4,804,701+2,752,728=7557429
Florida - 4,282,074+4,045,624=8327698
That’s .000195 percent.
That’s assuming the watchdog group is correct.
A voter watchdog? Well that sounds like a trustworthy authority in the voter wars, doesn’t it. I wonder which watchdog that might be?
True the Vote, a group that focuses on voter fraud, said it turned over 31 cases to state and federal election authorities in which individuals cast their votes in two states in the same federal election — which is a felony.
Logan Churchwell, a spokesman for the group, told foxnews.com that the organization accessed Florida’s complete voter registration roll and cross-referenced it against 10 percent of New York’s list. It identified more than 1,700 people with voter registrations in both states. Of that number, 31 people allegedly voted in both states during the same federal election cycle.
I wonder if they checked to see if those names were actually the same person?
Since the article shamefully doesn’t mention their methods, our only recourse in determining the reliability of their findings is to check the group’s trustworthiness and potential intentions.
“True the Vote says it is nonpartisan, but it began as an outgrowth of the King Street Patriots, a nonprofit Tea Party organization mostly active in Texas.”
Hmmm. Tea Party.
Might there be bigoted intentions?
Justice Department lawyers have interviewed witnesses who say they witnessed intimidation at the polls in Harris County, Texas. True the Vote — an outgrowth of the King Street Patriots — targeted the voter registration effort called Houston Votes, which has since received threats via e-mail.
“This summer, a local Tea Party offshoot called True The Vote started digging through voter registrations, looking for fraud. The group’s president, Catherine Engelbrecht, told Fox News that she focused on a district with high numbers of homes with more than six registered voters — a district which also, according to Fox, happens to be the poorest district in Houston, with predominantly minority residents. “
Sounds like this group has a vested interest in limiting Democratic voting. That doesn’t look good.
Just for comparison, let’s check to see what others looking into voter fraud actually found.
The Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) in an attempt to discredit a NAACP report this week on the lack of voter fraud evidence has bolstered the view that there is no need for voter ID laws, imposed by many states.
Looks like they also actively practice the ‘Way of the Conspiracy’ a worldview that has become common on the right since Obama’s election.
Catherine Engelbrecht of Richmond, Texas, True the Vote’s leader, told us in a telephone interview that she learned of the NAACP’s interest in enlisting the U.N. from a Dec. 5, 2011, news article posted by a British news source, the Guardian.
That story, which makes no mention of Holder, says the NAACP is petitioning the U.N. over what it sees as a concerted effort through changes in election laws to disenfranchise black and Latino voters ahead of the 2012 presidential election.
True the Vote provided no evidence for its Holder claim while our own inquiries landed no confirmation — nor anything close.
Holder and the NAACP both say minority voting rights should be protected. But the idea that Holder backs the group’s call for a U.N. investigation appears to be without basis. Indeed, if this claim was factual, it would be national and international news.
Instead, the statement is ridiculous. Pants on Fire!
Once again Fox News attaches itself to a group with despicable intentions and questionable tactics.
