2008 Election Fraud News

2008 PRIMARY ELECTION FRAUD 

Updates on 1/17: Do the Candidates Even Matter? 

Clear Evidence of Widespread Voting Fraud in New Hampshire (Prison Planet 1/9/08)

Best round-up of the stories I’ve heard so far, with the town of Sutton coming in first, where all 31 of Ron Paul’s votes were eliminated (among unknown other ‘human errors’) 

BradBlog’s coverage of the NH primary results vs polls (1/8/08)   

Hand Recounts Show Paul Averaged 15% (RonPaulWarRoom 1/9/08)

A word of caution: these are partial recounts, in some, not all counties.  It’s obvious there’s foul play here (which we knew before the votes were cast); however this does not necessarily mean that Paul would have received 15% overall and/or placed 3rd.  New Hampshire looks like a good place to spend some of his supporters’ donations – Live Free or Die!

Two years after open-and-shut evidence is presented, the Florida Elections Commission announces the two year statute of limitations has run out. Full coverage from the BradBlog, including copies of the dated voter registration documents, mainstream coverage of the case from 2006, and more. 

National Election Survey Reveals 3,200,000 UNCOUNTED BALLOTS from 2006 election (Wired)This is the first data set available, and it’s still underestimated due to incomplete reporting by counties. Both parties are simply getting better each election at preventing people from voting, and preventing votes from being accurately recorded. Prove me wrong. 

Destruction of Evidence: Ohio’s 2004 Presidential Election Ballots (Agonist)

The state is too full of smoke to not be on fire  

The criminal cover up of Ohio’s stolen 2004 election sinks to the fraudulent, the absurd, the pathetic (BuzzFlash)

EXCERPT: “The illegal destruction of federally protected 2004 election materials by 56 of 88 Ohio counties has become a fraudulent “dog ate my homework” farce of absurd justifications and criminal coverups.”

Court hears lawsuit over voter roll ‘glitches’ (Miami Herald 12/12/07)

“Typos, hyphenated names and other bureaucratic problems have prompted Florida to reject thousands of voter registrations. Now some of the victims are fighting back in court.”

Judge throws out Florida voting law (Miami Herald 12/18/07)

Moonshine America: The Collapse of the ‘Trust Me’ Model (BlackBox Voting)

EXCERPT: “In 2007, Black Box Voting embarked on a year-long investigative series examining elections in what we call the Moonshine territories – reputedly the most corrupt local governments in America. What we found has staggering implications for the design of American election systems as a whole. Our current system only works if we trust every human link in the chain. In this report we will knock the concept of trust-based elections out the window.What follows begins with our examination of the “Trust Me” election model as it is implemented in locations like Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. What we found in these locations quickly unravels into an indictment of faith-based elections in all 50 states. The very core of the voting machine controversy is not paper trails or spot check procedures. The essence of whether an election system can be trusted is whether it allows the owners of the government, The People, to view the counting and the chain of custody. Votes counted in secret, and secret chain of custody can never work unless we change human nature itself.”

 Hillary Video: Experienced? Not even informed! (via MParent) 

Hillary The Hawk (CounterPunch 12/19/07)

EXCERPTS: “Her husband, Bill, was of course the former chief of the executive branch. And during her eight years as first lady, Mrs. Clinton never objected to Bill’s eight wars, attacks, or interventions: in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Colombia, Haiti, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, and Yugoslavia. He bombed Iraq in 1993 soon after taking office, again in 1996, and from 1998 till he left office. For a time, he was dropping bombs on Iraqis and Yugoslavs simultaneously in 1999….

“Mrs. Clinton had been instrumental in persuading Bill to attack Yugoslavia, according to multiple writers. Biographer Gail Sheehy wrote in “Hillary’s Choice” (p. 345): “On March 21, 1999, Hillary expressed her views by phone to the president. ‘I urged him to bomb [Yugoslavia].’ ” Bill was indecisive. She invoked the Holocaust, alluding to claims of mass killings by Milosovic and his men, and asked, “What do we have NATO for if not to defend our way of life?” (Originally it was to defend western Europe against a possible Soviet attack.) Days later the president gave the go-ahead for war, thereby usurping the constitutional prerogative of Congress. The Milosovic-massacre tale (which Senator Clinton repeated in her 2002 Senate speech) was subsequently debunked by several European pathological teams. The Clinton-NATO air raids, however, killed a couple of thousand civilians. A year later Amnesty International charged that international law was violated by indiscriminate bombings.”

Obama: Election Theft Won’t Be Tolerated; Contradicting Record (Chicago Sun Times 1/1/08)

 “If for any reason this thing is close, we will fight it tooth and nail till the end. The nice thing is, I’m a voting-rights attorney as well as a civil rights attorney.”… But his “fighting” stance contrasts sharply with the vote he took on his very first day in the U.S. Senate where he joined the 74-1 majority voting not to challenge President Bush’s disputed victory in Ohio. The Congressional Black Caucus urged him to be the second “yes” vote, but he declined.”
