Voter Fraud

Election Integrity: An Experiment

Featured image Election integrity is a critically important issue. In Minnesota, we have an administration and particularly a Secretary of State whose object seems to be maximizing opportunities for fraud. We have same-day registration, but no provisional balloting. This means people vote first, and we try to find out whether they are actually qualified after it is too late. Counties send post cards to same-day registrants who can’t verify their names and »

The trouble with Kinko’s

Featured image At Legal Insurrection Ms. Fuzzy Slippers asks “Why Is Kamala The Last Democrat Still Arguing Against Voter I.D.?” The answer to Ms. Slippers’ question has something to do with Kinko’s. According to Harris, rural voters can’t find a Kinko’s at which to copy their id’s. This is true, but that is because FedEx deep-sixed the Kinko’s name in 2008 with an accompanying $891 million charge-off (“non-cash impairment”). That was 13 »

An all-star game worth boycotting [With Comment by John]

Featured image Major League Baseball is heading into the all-star break. Next week, it will hold its home run derby on Monday and the all-star game on Tuesday. Both events, and various others, will be held in Denver, Colorado, not Atlanta, Georgia as originally scheduled. MLB pulled the game from Atlanta because the Georgia legislature passed election integrity reforms that Democrats don’t like and contend are racist. MLB thus inserted itself into »

Supreme Court delivers major blow to Dems’ campaign against state election laws

Featured image On the last day before its summer recess, the Supreme Court upheld two Arizona voting provisions that Democrats and civil rights groups challenged as disproportionately burdening minority voters. The vote was 6-3, with only the three hardcore liberals dissenting. Justice Alito wrote the opinion. That’s always a great sign. Amy Howe at Scotusblog observes that the decision “will make it more difficult to contest election regulations under the Voting Rights »

DOJ sues Georgia over its voting law

Featured image The Biden Justice Department announced yesterday that it is suing Georgia over the voting procedures the state recently adopted. The suit alleges civil rights violations under Section 2 of he Voting Rights Act. It will be prosecuted by Kristen Clarke, the racist head of the Civil Rights Division, with the help, presumably, of her brainy principal deputy, Pam Karlan. On the merits, the lawsuit is a joke. As Andy McCarthy »

Are Democrats Against Voter Fraud? It All Depends

Featured image Several weeks ago, a friend who lives in Minneapolis and is participating in the Democratic caucuses there emailed to point out that when it comes to their own election, the DFL suddenly cares about ballot integrity: Dear ____: You registered as a caucus attendee. ✅ You also confirmed your address. ✅ Now the next step of the caucus is to elect delegates from your precinct. ✅ You are joining a »

The Dems’ lies of Texas

Featured image Rich Lowry notes this inconsistency in the Democrats’ position on filibusters: In Washington, D.C., where Democrats control the White House and both chambers of Congress, the Senate filibuster is portrayed as a Jim Crow relic that is profoundly undemocratic. In Austin, Texas, where Republicans control the governor’s mansion and both chambers of the legislature, House Democrats’ walking out to prevent the passage of a bill with majority support is portrayed »

Coke to Republicans: Why can’t we all just get along?

Featured image When woke corporations started attacking Georgia over its new voting law, Coca-Cola led the charge. Its chief executive James Quincey went on television to declare the law “unacceptable.” But now, following outrage by Republicans over corporate America’s attempt to do the Democrats’ bidding on state election law issues, Coke isn’t so sure that alienating a large portion of the electorate is a good idea. Thus, as Karen Townsend observes, Coke’s »

Voters Say: Election Fraud Is a Problem

Featured image America’s CEOs may believe that election integrity is unimportant, but voters across the political spectrum disagree. Rasmussen finds that 51% of voters believe that voter fraud impacted the 2020 presidential election: A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election. Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely »

Trump Wins In Michigan

Featured image I have said several times that I don’t know whether the Democrats stole the 2020 election, but I do know that they tried hard to steal it. Their efforts included relaxation of voting standards, especially relating to mail-in voting, wherever they had Democratic Secretaries of State. Typically these changes to voting procedures, not enacted by state legislatures–likely in violation of the Constitution–involved waiving a statutory requirement of witness signatures to »

Election Integrity Or Voter Suppression?

Featured image The battle over election integrity came to Minnesota today. The state’s Republican-controlled Senate passed a modest reform bill that includes provisional ballots. This is how the Senate GOP described the bill: Improvements to election security will significantly increase integrity and transparency in Minnesota elections. Minnesota is one of only three states in the nation that do not provide provisional ballots on Election Day. These ballots are for individuals who have »

Biden tries to distance himself from woke MLB decision

Featured image The White House is trying to insulate Joe Biden from Major League Baseball’s decision to take the all-star game away from Atlanta (it will be played in Denver, Colorado where, arguably, it’s a little easier to vote, legitimately and fraudulently). It’s understandable that Team Biden wants to distance the president from the decision, given the blowback it has produced, plus the poll showing that more Americans support Georgia’s election law »

Asking For ID Violates the Constitution?

Featured image America’s institutions have gone mad, with organizations like Delta and Major League Baseball lining up to oppose sensible election integrity measures, in particular identification requirements that can help prevent voter fraud. Of course, if you pick up tickets at a major league will-call window, you will have to present identification. And no one can board a Delta flight without a driver’s license, passport or other ID. But no one has »

Down with Major League Baseball!

Featured image Major League Baseball has decided to punish Georgia for its new voting law by moving the 2021 all-star game from Atlanta. As John explained here, the new law isn’t racist, as critics complain. In fact, it actually increases access to the polls. But that’s not really the point. The point is that Major League Baseball’s executives should worry about fixing their broken game and leave decisions about voting and other »

Down With Delta!

Featured image Yesterday we linked to Byron York’s account of Delta’s foray into left-wing politics. Delta’s CEO, Ed Bastian, issued a foolish statement denouncing Georgia’s election reform legislation. Bastien’s statement parroted false left-wing narratives: Last week, the Georgia legislature passed a sweeping voting reform act that could make it harder for many Georgians, particularly those in our Black and Brown communities, to exercise their right to vote. This is false. What the »

Shapes of things (15)

Featured image You may have heard that “Amazon is seeking reconsideration of a ruling by an NLRB Hearing Officer that 6000 workers at an Amazon facility in Alabama will be allowed eight weeks time to vote by mail on whether to unionize the workforce. Amazon — owned by Jeff Bezos, also the owner of the Washington Post — opposes the use of mail-in only balloting in the union election on the basis »

A DOJ coup attempt? No, an honest disagreement about the election.

Featured image The mainstream media has been promoting the story that, in early January, President Donald Trump entertained a plan to replace Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen with an Assistant Attorney General who wanted to pursue claims of voter fraud. The Assistant in question is Jeff Clark whom I got to know, and like, when Democrats were blocking his nomination. The story, which first appeared in the New York Times, is that »
