Fraud and Intimidation at Polls Today
November 6, 2012 1:15pm CST
This morning, a legally credentialed poll watcher was threatened and intimidated while attempting to perform his legally allowed duties of observing the election process at precinct polling location 289 in Detroit. The poll watcher, a lawyer, was confronted by a voter in line, who demanded the poll watcher produce his credentials, which he did. However, the voter said that wasn’t good enough and that he had “a badge and a gun” and told the poll watcher get out of the precinct. Rather than allow the situation to escalate, the poll watcher left before the voter produced a badge or brandished a gun. Fearing for his safety, the poll watcher exited and called 911, however the Detroit Police refused to respond to the call – neglecting the fact that a voter alleged to have a ‘badge’ and a ‘gun’ in a precinct, putting other voters at risk. http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/watercooler/2012/nov/6/picket-gop-poll-watcher-detroit-threatened-gun-911/ Four men caught in a Sheet Metal Workers International Association (SMWIA) truck full of Romney/Ryan signs were issued summons for receiving stolen property early Friday morning in Perrysburg, OH. Local police responded after residents reported seeing men stealing Romney signs in the middle of the night.

The violations included a near take-over of a polling location by members of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). Incidents were so blatant that the NAACP members were actually moving people forward in line to vote ahead of other voters. http://www.texasgopvote.com/knowledge-topics/2012-elections/texas-republicans-suing-democrat-party-over-polling-location-law-violations-004789 “Two immigrants who are not citizens -- and thus not eligible to vote -- have accused a Nevada Culinary Union of registering them to vote and then threatening them with deportation if they did not go to the polls… Once registered, these immigrants can vote because of Nevada's lax identification requirements.” Somali immigrants who cannot speak English bused in to vote in Ohio. They actually are going into the booths to 'help' them with their ballots. If this election goes to Romney and Obama contests it, there's plenty of evidence of FRAUD and INTIMIDATION coming from the Democrats to make Romney's case. If it goes to Obama, there is plenty of evidence that Democrats stole it to make Romney's case.

I guess it would be pretty easy for non-Americans to vote. All I had to do is fill out a form with my name and address to get registered. I guess an illegal could get similar forms and just check the boxes that they are citizens. By the time they would get found out the election would be over.

We have ID laws here, I had to show a piece of mail with my address and an ID to register. And my voter card and ID when I voted. What is the big friggin deal? The poor get government assistane and have to have an ID to receive that.

Here in my state you don't have to show ID to register or to vote. In addition illegal immigrants can legally get driver's and thus have an ID. Unless the law is once again waived in January a driver's license from my state will not be enough for someone to be allowed to get on an airplane. But the law will probably be waived once again. Thus any illegal immigrant or terrorists or whoever can come to my state and get a driver's license then do whatever they want when it comes to boarding a plane or getting a license on another state based on their license here. As far as voting went all I had to do was say my name verify that what came up was my address and sign an illegible signature and I could vote. I could have registered any number of times with false addresses and names and voted many times. Since my state has gone from being a toss up in 2008 to solidly Democrat this year, I suspect the voter roles are full of fraud. Even two dogs got registered that have been discovered.

A woman was told to cover her shirt that said "Vote the Bible" but at several polling places there are posters of Obama on the walls and one polling place has a painted mural of Obama on the wall. Unlike the Bible, Obama is an actual candidate for office. Whatever the outcome, it will be contested. What won't happen is any prosecution of those who are intimidating voters at polling places. We know already that no one will prosecute as long as they are Obama supporters.
