  • Dem Poll workers told to allege voter intimidation, even if none exists

       October 14, 2004

    Drudge has the bombshell story of the week. It seems that the DNC is telling their poll workers to allege voting irregularities even where none exist, and on top of that, they're getting ready to trot out the "minority leadership" to lend creedence to the very allegations that they're directing their staffers to fabricate.



    **World Exclusive**

    The Kerry/Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee are advising election operatives to declare voter intimidation -- even if none exists, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal.

    A 66-page mobilization plan to be issued by the Kerry/Edwards campaign and the Democratic National Committee states: "If no signs of intimidation techniques have emerged yet, launch a 'pre-emptive strike.'"


    The provocative Dem battle plan is to be distributed in dozens of states, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

    One top DNC official confirmed the manual's authenticity, but claimed the notion of crying wolf on any voter intimidation is "absurd."

    "We all know the Republicans are going to try to steal the election by scaring people and confusing people," the top DNC source explained.


    Not only are these slimeballs telling their poll workers to allege intimidation even where none exists, but they are telling them to use "minority leaders" to lend creedence to and promote these lies. My god, I can't think of a more blatantly racist tactic - ":et's see," say top Dems, "How can we use the black man today? How can minorities be useful to us?"

    I am beyond disgusted. Why people continue to vote for these power hungry self-aggrandizing, racist liars and cheats completely escapes me.

    are you so blindly partisan that you dont believe this crap goes both ways? dont try to justify the accusations against republicans. its politics. its dirty. its ugly. both sides are dirty.
    * * *
    In Nevada, a company hired by the Republican Party to register voters was accused by a former employee of throwing Democrats' registration forms into the trash. The company, Sproul & Associates, denied that it was registering only Republicans, as the employee charged in a report on KLAS-TV in Las Vegas. The company also has been registering voters in Oregon, West Virginia, Minnesota and other battleground states.

    In Florida, scene of the 36-day recount in 2000, the state's Southern Christian Leadership Conference asked the U.S. Civil Rights Commission to investigate activities "designed to cause confusion and suppress the African-American vote" in the Tallahassee area. Labor and voting-rights groups also sued this week to prevent the disqualification of more than 10,000 incomplete registration forms. They said such disqualifications would disadvantage minority voters.

    Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, a local co-chairman of Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites)'s campaign, wants the county to print 938,000 ballots, far more than the usual number, to accommodate a flood of new voters. But County Executive Scott Walker, a local co-chairman of President Bush (news - web sites)'s re-election campaign, is giving the city 679,000 ballots - 10,000 more than were printed for the last presidential election. He says having a large number of excess ballots would be an opportunity for fraud. Local District Attorney Mike McCann plans to deploy more than 30 lawyers on Nov. 2 to mediate polling-place disputes. He says "malevolent challenges" by partisans could interfere with voting.

    Republicans circulated excerpts of a national Democratic Party election manual urging recruitment of local minority leaders to launch pre-emptive strikes against voter intimidation, even if there's no evidence it's going on. Democratic spokesman Jano Cabrera said the material was taken out of context. He released a fuller excerpt that stated, "The best way to combat minority intimidation tactics is to prevent them."

    In Denver, an estimated 165,000 new voter sign-ups brought warnings of potential vote fraud. State officials have sent several hundred registrations to the attorney general for review, and the Denver district attorney is investigating 200 more. Both parties have enlisted hundreds of lawyers for Election Day challenges and for post-election fights over disputed ballots.

    Rep. Pat Tiberi, an Ohio Republican, noted that four counties in his state have voter registration numbers that exceed the number of voting-age residents in the counties in the last Census. "When you have an election so close, and every vote makes a difference, these things get argued about, and probably lawsuits will decide them," Tiberi said.

    dont be so self righteous for crying out loud.

    CONCORD, N.H. President Bush's New England campaign chairman stepped down Friday after the Democrats accused him of taking part in the jamming of their telephone lines on Election Day 2002.

    Get-out-the-vote phones run by Democrats and the nonpartisan Manchester firefighters union were jammed on Election Day two years ago by more than 800 computer-generated hang-up calls. The calls tied up the phones for 11/2 hours.

    Last summer, Chuck McGee, former executive director of the state GOP, pleaded guilty to conspiracy and admitted paying $15,600 to a Virginia telemarketing company that hired another business to make the calls. GOP consultant Allen Raymond also pleaded guilty.

    I'm not sure I understand your position, krengle. Are you saying that it's OK for the Dems to "cheat" becasue "everyone cheats?" That's not a very reasonable position.

    I don't happen to think that any election fraud is justifiable, regardless of which "side" commits it.

    Do you understand the examples that you're citing above?

    1. A company "was accused of." And the company "denied." That's a wash. Look how easy it is: I hereby accuse my boss of discouraging me from voting for Bush. Ok, call him up, he'll deny it. Give me a break.

    2. Again, someone was "asked to investigate." Secondly, incomplete registrations SHOULD be thrown out. People register with false names all of the time. People try to vote multiple times. That's why we have "registration" in the first place. "They said such disqualifications would disadvantage minority voters." OK, good for them. If "they say" that Santa Claus is real, are you going to cite that as support in an argument?

    3. In the 2000 census, Milwaukee County had 940,164 residents. Now I don't know how many of those are under 18, but it seems pretty unlikely that the county will need 938,000 ballots. Note that your "blurb" says that they are printing 10,000 more than were printed last time, not 10,000 more than were USED last time. You have no idea how many votes were cast in Milwaukee County last time around, do you? That's a fact you should probably get before posting that as an example of dirty politics or unfair play. According to one source it's 432,694. ( Do you really think that Milwaukee County will legitimately need over TWICE as many ballots as it did last time?

    Please. Try thinking for yourself before citing these blurbs off of super-democrat dot com or wherever you get them. It makes you look stupid when you simply repeat things that make no sense.

    I'm not going to waste my time responding to the rest of your post b/c the rest of your "points" simply make no sense.

    In the future, I'd recommend that you cite to your sources. That will not only give your argument more more weight, but it will also let other people who actually know what they're talking about figure out what the heck it is that you are blindly repeating.

    For instance, you cannot plead guilty to "conspiracy." That isn't a charge. Whoever wrote that article or issued the press release that you cited may know that, too, b/c i suspect that they wanted to insinuate that he's pleaded guilty to 18 USC 241 or similar when in fact the person (i looked it up) only plead to "conspiracy to annoy or harass."
