'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

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.
