Voter Fraud

Rampant Voter Fraud Alleged In Minnesota

Featured image Same day registration and other liberal “reforms” have made it easy for ineligible voters to cast ballots in many states. When law-abiding citizens point out that liberal policies enable voter fraud, the left’s response is always that 1) voter fraud hardly ever happens, so 2) you must be a racist. Typically subtle liberal argumentation. Here in Minnesota, a case is pending in our Supreme Court that challenges same day registration »

A bad day for the DOJ in court; a good one for electoral integrity

Featured image Last evening, District of Columbia federal district court Judge Richard Leon issued an order denying the request by the various left-wing organizations to issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) barring the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) from instructing residents of Alabama, Georgia, and Kansas that they must comply with state laws requiring proof-of-citizenship when they register to vote. Judge Leon issued this ruling even though the Justice Department, representing the »

Judge unimpressed by Obama DOJ’s dive on non-citizen voting

Featured image Earlier today, I wrote about the scheduled hearing in a case brought by several left-wing organizations to block three states from taking measures to make sure non-citizens can’t vote in the upcoming elections. The states received permission from the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC) to proceed. The leftist outfits seek to enjoin the EAC’s order. The Justice Department is, in effect, the lawyer for the EAC. However, it has chosen »

The Obama administration takes a dive to make sure non-citizens can vote

Featured image Several left-wing organizations are fighting against efforts by states to make sure non-citizens can’t vote in the upcoming presidential elections. The leftists came up short when the federal election agency charged with resolving such matters ruled against them. But the leftist groups challenged this ruling in federal court, and the Obama-Loretta Lynch Justice Department has decided to take a dive. It is not opposing the lawsuit to enjoin the election »

141 counties have more registered voters than eligible live citizens

Featured image The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), of which our friend Christian Adams is president, has put 141 counties on notice that they have more registered voters than people alive. These counties encompass 21 states. Michigan leads the way with 24 counties, followed by Kentucky (18) and Illinois (17). Here is the list of such counties. The notification letters sent by PILF are a prerequisite to bringing a lawsuit against the »

Hillary relies on Republicans to be a party of cowards

Featured image Hillary Clinton has made “voting rights” the centerpiece of her presidential campaign. Christian Adams reports: In Houston, Hillary made election process rules a focus of her campaign. By process, I mean who votes, when they vote, and how they vote. While Republicans tend to focus on issues, Democrats realize that if they dominate the process of the election, the power to control the issues will follow. Process brings power. Hillary’s »

How many elections…? part 3

Featured image James O’Keefe has been on the ground in North Carolina for the past week and just released a video contribution to Steve’s series wondering how many elections the Democrats will steal next week. Like Diogenes in search of an honest man, O’Keefe goes in search of someone, anyone, who will discourage illegal voting by noncitizens in North Carolina. Spoiler alert: O’Keefe had no more luck thant Diogenes (video below). O’Keefe »

How Many Elections Will Democrats Steal Next Week? Part 2

Featured image As a follow up to our item the other day on the recent academic study examining the evidence of widespread voting by non-citizens, there are two stories out today. First, Bryan Preston over at Breitbart reports on what appears to be significant voting anomalies in Maryland (where there is a surprisingly close governor’s race that has not attracted much attention outside the state): The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that »

How Many Elections Will Democrats Steal Next Week?

Featured image How extensive is voter-fraud, especially among non-citizens? Just bring up the question, or suggest we need to have voter-ID at the polls like every other advanced democracy, and the answer will be instantly supplied: You’re a racist. But as Dan McLaughlin points out over at The Federalist, Democrats seem to win a suspiciously high number of close elections, well beyond what a random statistical trial would suggest. There’s a bombshell »

Dems at work

Featured image Democrats protect illegal voters as though they are a core constituency of the party, and they promote arrangements that facilitate voter fraud as though fraud is a strategic electoral weapon in their armory. In his latest video (below), James O’Keefe makes the rounds among Democrats and their friends at work on behalf of their causes in Colorado. O’Keefe has posted a partial transcript here. In the video O’Keefe and his »

There Is Method to the Democrats’ Madness Over “Voting Rights”

Featured image Donna Brazile, who wants to get rid of the Constitution, sent out an email to Democrats a little while ago: John — Last week, the Supreme Court voted to leave the Ohio GOP’s early voting restrictions in place for this election and made it harder and more confusing for people in Ohio to vote. It’s shameful — a victory for the underhanded tactics Republicans are using to keep Democrats away »

Cracks Appearing In Democratic Coalition

Featured image The population of Mogadishu is moving to Minneapolis, through the miracle of chain immigration. I don’t know whether there is any limiting principle to this or whether all of Mogadishu will one day reside along the Mississippi, but in any event, the Somali influx is already impacting Minnesota politics. Despite being “natural conservatives”–imagine what they must think of abortion and gay marriage!–the Somalis have so far been reliable Democratic voters. »

O’Keefe Catches Texas Democrats In Illegal Activity

Featured image Battleground Texas, the “new ACORN,” purports to be a voter registration organization, but in fact is an arm of the Wendy Davis campaign for governor. Project Veritas infiltrated Battleground Texas and caught the Democratic Party activists red-handed, violating Texas law by retaining telephone numbers of voters they register, so they can call them during the campaign to turn them out for Davis. The Democrats’ illegal conduct couldn’t be clearer in »

Judge Posner’s mea culpa was a recantation

Featured image I wrote here about Judge Richard Posner’s “weak and inappropriate mea culpa,” wherein he declared that he made a mistake in upholding Indiana’s voter-ID law. But now, Judge Posner denies that he is recanting that opinion. In a post on the New Republic’s website called “I Did Not ‘Recant’ on Voter ID laws,” he asserts: I did not say [in Reflections on Judging] that my decision, and the Supreme Court’s »

Judge Posner’s weak and inappropriate mea culpa

Featured image Judge Richard Posner, in his latest book Reflections on Judging, has declared that he made a mistake in upholding Indiana’s voter-ID law. Posner wrote the majority opinion in the case. The decision was affirmed by the Supreme Court, by a vote of 6-3 with the lead opinion by Justice Stevens. Judge Posner blames the lawyers for his mistake — always a good ploy. In an interview, he claimed that the »

Long day’s journey, cont’d

Featured image Byron York reports that President Obama will return his attention to unemployment in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday. I can’t wait. He seems to have wandered far from the subject over the last four years, but it’s probably for the best. His ideas for reducing unemployment — best represented in the trillion-dollar stimulus bill of 2009 — retard the kind of economic growth that fosters the creation »

Ballot Integrity In the State of Washington

Featured image A reader emailed earlier today to say that he and his wife recently moved to Washington State. His wife is a Canadian citizen who has a green card. Much to their surprise, she received in the mail a voter registration card issued by the county in which they live, informing her that “You are registered to vote.” Our reader writes: My wife is a Canadian citizen, has her green card, »
