Voter Fraud in Massachusetts?

Big Government asks "why is this woman handing out absentee ballots?"

If one were trying to manufacturing fraudulent votes, absentee ballots would be a great place to start. In many cases stacks of these have been turned in at one time, making it impossible to verify that an individual voter submitted each ballot.

As I said, if the Democratic machine can cheat to get Martha Coakley over the finish line, they will. A number of people on Twitter have recommended that Brown supporters video tape as many incidences of voter fraud as possible. I think that's a very good idea.

Steve Green:

Who knows why she's got these - and no suprise that there is no video of her "handing them out"...

But those are photo copies of an Absentee ballot. Yu can clearly see that the edge perferations are not actual holes.

Only a Republican would think they could be used to actually record votes.

Wow - are you guys so full of yourself that you really think the only way Brown can lose is if "Dems cheat"?

Steve,Welcome back. ... (Below threshold)
DaveD:

Steve,
Welcome back. Your observations are always interesting. Like denying that Coakley's handler "handled" a reporter only to have an apolgy surface from the handler later. Also, finding nothing wrong that the underwear bomber was of Middle East descent traveling one way from Africa to the US through Europe with no luggage and paying cash. Finding nothing wrong with that when even government security agencies consider that profile a red flag. I am surprised you keep popping up here expecting your comments to be taken seriously. Democrats have honed cheating in elections to just another day on the job. Face it Steve, you have no clue.

GarandFan:

If any of the 'normal' Democratic cheating tactics were to be deployed, they'd have had to do some planning in advance. Until a couple of weeks ago, Martha was a shoo-in. It was going to be a cakewalk. So little surprise that Ms Melendez had to run to a copier and run off some "absentee ballots". The question is, will they be accepted? Closing day for getting an absentee ballot was last week.

No, the question is - "What are you smoking, and can I have some?"

Only a Republican would think they could be used to actually record votes.

SER:

Mr. Green,

Can you provide us with an example of Republicans cheating? Something along the lines of "Landslide Lyndon, (LBJ)" or Richard J. Daley's Chicago (dead people voting), or the Pendergast Machine in Kansas City, or Tammany Hall in New York or Frank Hague in Jersey City, Austin Murphy in Pennsylvania. History is filled with examples of Democratic Party election fraud. Where are the Republican examples? Or is your point that there is no election fraud, ever?

Go back to 2000: Remember Democratic "campaign workers" handing out cigarettes to homeless "voters" and bussing them to the polls, and Milwaukee students bragging on TV about how many times they voted for Al Gore?

Democrat voter fraud is a dog bites man story. How many voter fraud complaints get filed against Democrats after each and every election versus complaints against Republicans?

I work with the office of the secretary of the state in MA.

twolaneflash, you'll really call it unbelievably crazy but we did have absentee votes from people named Ted Kennedy and one from a Mary Jo Kopechne.

The only unexpected thing was that the Kopechne ballot had circled in Brown (R).

nehemiah, of course Mary Jo voted for Brown. If I were her, I'd rise from the grave to vote for Brown to fill "Ted Kennedy's seat", too.

Well, okay. But then this election is historic not only for the upset win but also for the first undead republican vote. Obama's favorable rating must really be tanking to start affecting those below ground. I mean water.

My point is that yo'd have to be as nutty as the porr sick woman shown in the video above to think this is actually a voter fraud issue.

But leave to to the right to make up crap and spread it around the internet. After all, that worked so well in the 2008 presidential elections.... NOT.

They weren't absentee ballots - they were photo copies. They'd never be counted.

The video doesn't show her 'handing them out'.

There's no sign of s single copy being "handed out' much less "turned in"...

You'd have to be stupid to think this is really a voter fraud issue. This wacky woman is handing out photo copies. Who knows why Isabelle Melendez is handing out photo copies - but you'd have to stupid to think this is really a voter fraud issue.

John Fund doesn't think fraud will be an issue. Mainly because Brown's rise in the polls was so late in the game and so fast all the fraudy-types slet late thinking it would be a blowout for Coakley and now haven't the time to go about the usual business that outfits like ACORN are so handy with.

OLDPUPPYMAX:

"Video tape" this nonsense! Go up to these clowns, grab these fraudulent ballots from them and throw them in your car, headed for roaring fire this evening. The left will do little more than ignore the tapes, while celebrating a Coakley win. How dumb can conservatives be for God's sake. We have to FIGHT these people on their own damned level, which means beat the hell out of the frauds if necessary. It's a fight for our nation and our liberty, not some nifty video to put on friggin' facebook!!!

twolaneflash:

"Make up crap and spread it around the internet", Steve Green, like the "made up" video of Black Panther thugs intimidating voters, or the "bogus" ACORN sting videos by Breitbart, or the "fake" SEIU beat-down of a black man selling trinkets. We are called the right for a simple reason, Steve. Your side gives us much larger prime-time tv network made up crap like Rathergate, fact-checking SNL skits that offend The One, creatively editing video to hide the race of a black man carrying a gun near a Tea Party rally to tar the right as white gun-totin' racist radicals, calling Tea Party attendees a bunch of deep-throating cock$ucker$ with two hairy balls laying on their chins, and two years of unrepentant pandering for their Marxist almost near god-like leg-tingle-producing Sock-Puppet President.

The voters of Massachusetts have the floor today, if it hasn't rotted out from under them while they trusted it to the care of the likes of Kennedy and Kerry.

kevino:

Absentee ballots are a favorite way to stuff the ballot boxes. Even if they are photocopies, they will get counted in big cities in Lawrence. If anyone asks, they ran out of "real" forms and had to give out copies. Of course the machine will also hand out lists of registered voters. What they would like to have is signatures that somewhat match the registration lists, but the big thing is to have lots of ballots with different signatures.

Coakley hasn't lost yet. Turnout is very heavy, and that usually means a Democratic win. Democrats are apparently using robocalls to tell Brown supporters that if they are registered Democrats and try to vote for Brown, they can't. If it's a close Brown win, the machine can steal it for Coakley and save the Democrat's agenda. And they will.

I've also read that there aren't going to be any exit polls. That makes it easier to cheat: there are no other number to show that Coakley lost. The assumption will be that she made a huge comeback.

jim m:

Democrats don't see voting as a right and that voter fraud is a violation of someones constitutionally protected civil rights.

The dems see the election as a political game to be won at any cost. They don't care about laws or rules or if someone gets hurt because their Black Panther thugs beat them up for trying to vote. Democrats who support voter fraud or turn a blind eye to it are all fascists.

GarandFan:

"The absence of exit polls is revealing."

Evidently our vaunted "4th Estate" dropped the ball. The "news" organizations believed it was a cake walk for Martha, therefore no need to spend the extra money to find out WHAT EVERYONE ALREADY KNEW.

Kind of like how they put out the 'news' for Obama.

JLawson:

Who knows why Isabelle Melendez is handing out photo copies - but you'd have to stupid to think this is really a voter fraud issue.

I'd have to be stupid to think it ISN'T without a hell of a lot of proof, considering what the Dems did in Washington State (keep recounting until the Dem governor candidate won) and what they did in Minnesota (keep on counting, finding ballots each time until Franken won).

Steve, you incredible dunce - if this was a REPUBLICAN doing this you'd be screaming bloody murder, and I'd be yelling along with you. Voter fraud should NEVER be condoned or acceptable, no matter WHAT party does it - because we HAVE to be able to trust that the votes are honest or the trust in our representative system will be badly eroded.

That you're so quick to label it as 'not a problem, nothing to see, move along!' makes me think you know damn good and well what it is, and you figure it's perfectly acceptable as long as Coakley wins.

By the way, when you get MSNBC anchors calling for cheating, there's something really screwed up somewhere.

Transcript:

SCHULTZ: An apology right off the top here on the Ed Schultz show today, great to have you with us. I misspoke on Friday. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I meant to say, if I could vote 20 times, that's what I'd do (guffaws) This has been a wonderful weekend for us. I've had more entertaining email from these right-wing nutjobs than ever before. It must be, it's gotta be a record for the Ed Schultz show, now in its seventh year.

SCHULTZ: They want me off the air, of course they do! This Radio Equalizer guy or whoever the hell he is, they dissect every word, they'll take a clip out and they'll say he said this. Let me be very clear - I'm not advocating voter fraud, I'm just telling you what I would do. That's how bad I want Scott Brown to lose!
The ends justify the means, I guess - don't you just love it when there's such a CLEAR call for a 'fair' election? One man, one vote - unless you really, really want the candidate to lose, and then damn the idea of an honest election!

klrtz1:

If you look at what Steve Green is saying he just wants to make sure that before you accuse someone of voter fraud you have to have proof that will convince a corrupt Democratic Party operative like the one who will be the trial judge. Who for all you know will actually be Steve Green himself.

It could happen.

JLawson:

Steve - you read there'd be exit polls?

Better tell the Huffington Post - and put up a fucking link, buddy.

From HuffPo -

Those seeking exit polls for the 2010 Massachusetts Senate Race will be disappointed to know there aren't any.

Mike Allen of Politico reports about the lack of exit polls:

The consortium scrambled to put something together -- for the "why," more than for the call -- but wasn't confident a reliable system could be built so fast."Maybe that should read "We weren't sure we could set up people who'd tell us the numbers we wanted to hear!"

Allen adds that just days ago the Boston Sunday Globe carried the headline, "Senate poll: Coakley up 15 points." Since the election wasn't expected to be close not long ago, some apparently thought the exit poll process wouldn't be needed.
Yeah, when you think you've got a lock on the state you're not going to worry about such things!

Arrgs:

The republicans knew fraud was going to come up, as usual,so they staged a bunch of crap and called it (D) election fraud. Question is, how does the hand counts compare to the machine counts. Looks fishy already. They aren't matching. Coakley won a lot more precincts than reported. Nothing new. Liars & cheats for ever. Long live corporate fascism.
