Our Suspicions Confirmed

'They Tried to Steal an Election,' N.Y. Voter Fraud Case Heats Up

Brian Suozzo voted with an absentee ballot in the Working Families Party primary on Sept. 15 because, as his application stated, he was "at home recovering from medical procedure."

Jessica Boomhower's application said she would be attending a "work conference in Boston."

Michael Ward couldn't vote in person because he was "taking care of elderly parent."

Kimberlee Truell was on a "Bus trip to casino," as was Miguel Vazques.

The only problem with these absentee ballot records at the Rensselaer County Board of Elections in Troy, N.Y., is that they're phony, voters and investigators say -- and they've prompted what's being called an unprecedented investigation of suspected voter fraud.

Thirty-eight forged or fraudulent ballots have been thrown out -- enough votes, an election official admits, to likely have tipped the city council and county elections in November to the Democrats. Candidates would have been able to run both on the Democratic and Working Families Party lines in two weeks, and that could have given the Democrats in the general election.

A special prosecutor is investigating the case and criminal charges are possible. New York State Supreme Court Judge Michael Lynch ruled that there were "significant election law violations that have compromised the rights of numerous voters and the integrity of the election process."

There's more to this though:

Wait for it

Wait for it

Critics also accuse the Working Families Party of having a long association with the troubled activist group, ACORN. Bertha Lewis, ACORN's CEO, is one of the party's co-founders. The New York Times reported this month that "Patrick Gaspard, the White House political director, worked with ACORN in New York to set up the Working Families political party and sat on the party's board with Ms. Lewis."

There's even more to it though:

The WFP has also endorsed New York Democratic Sen. Kristen Gillibrand, who was one of only seven Senators who voted against cutting federal housing funds to ACORN in September.

This whole thing is actually a little complicated, read the article for a more in depth explanation.

Bottom line is if we had an honest investigation, which will not happen with Obama controlling the Justice Department, I think we would snare the vast majority of Democrats in the ACORN spider web.

Or, to paraphrase Hillary Clinton, it's a vast left-wing conspiracy.

Your statement that as long as O controls the justice dept is so telling. I am thinking it is time for CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN!!!

This is small potatoes. The Democrats appear to have already stolen two, possibly three Senate seats through vote fraud.

Chuck said...

Gramma, little over a year

Shoprat, I know, this one is just more obvious than most

DaBlade said...

Nothing but a little Chicago style politics going on there. Obama doesn't like your fact checking Chuck. You are now banished with Fox News.

Chuck said...

DaBlade, I'm okay with that

I don't know about you all, but I (for one) am shocked.

We won't have any such investigation with BHO at the helm, of course.

Welcome to Chicago politics!

I'm wondering if we will ever have an honest election again. And we complain about Afghanistan's election being fraudulent.

Paul Champagne said...

Well said, cube.

I can't believe we are criticizing and policing the elections in other countries when we have rampant election fraud in our own.

MK said...

I sure hope they get these bastards and put them away. The amount of thievery, dishonesty and blatant lying by the left is simply staggering.

And i love the 'working families' bullshit, the same thing was peddled by the left down here. And i thought it was something we invented. And as all things with the left, you be assured the workings of this 'working families' is nothing like a real working family.

Brooke said...

I first heard about this today on Beck's show.

Ah, Chicago thuggery!

Chuck said...

LA, I know your faith was on the good in humankind and you try to believe these people are only here to help us, hope you are able to make peace with this news ;)

AOW, no investigations until new Congress in January of 2011, right?

Cube, think of all of the elections Jimmy Carter has observed to ensure they are honest

Paul, welcome and thanks. Saw your comment after I responded Cube. Excellant point if I may say so.

MK, their working families are just like other working families except they aren't traditional families and they don't work.

Brooke agreed
