There has already been lot's of talk about potential voter fraud this year..and the primaries/caucuses have only just begun.
This thread had lot's of hits
and comments pretty quickly...especially after the out
of no where surge of Rick Santorum.
There was just talk of the New Hampshire primary and voter fraud.
Man came to vote, but had already voted.
Or so he was told.
South Carolina's primary is coming up. There has already been A LOT of talk and debate and court action and POTUS action concerning their new voter
registration laws. Here is a thread from last year on that law.
Partisan feud escalates over voter ID laws in South Carolina, other states
This is coming from
and is intended to make sure people who vote are who they say they are. The problem though has been lot's of minorities have
claimed discrimination over the law.
Here's an excerpt from the CSM article from today:
States have been on a tear of late to enact tighter controls on voting, including in South Carolina. Last year, 34 approved or considered tougher
voting regulations, in a bid to ensure that voters who show up at the polls on Election Day are who they say they are.
Most of the new rules were approved by Republican-controlled legislatures, whose members say a crackdown on voter fraud is long overdue. But many
Democrats decry the strictest rules – which won't allow a ballot to be counted unless that voter presents a state-approved photo ID – as a
conspiracy to suppress turnout of their party's constituency, namely the poor, minorities, and college students
The US DOJ and the President immediately stepped in on this as well as several other states attempts to change the voter registration laws. It was
struck down, and has now probably headed to the Supreme Court. Especially since the SC primary is Jan. 21. The very next one there is.
With all of that said...and back to the title of my post, The states Attorney General Alan Wilson has asked the state law enforcement division to look
into recent fraud found by of all people...the states Director of Motor Vehicles Kevin Shwedo.
"Director Shwedo's research has revealed evidence that over 900 deceased people appear to have 'voted' in recent elections in South Carolina," said
Wilson. "This is an alarming number, and clearly necessitates an investigation into potential criminal activity. I have asked SLED Chief Keel to
review Director Shwedo's research."
This is apparently still pretty early in the investigation and was just reported today by the
Greenville SC TV station WYFF.
It doesn't say when this occurred or during what voting issues, but there is obviously a serious issue here. They
are already looking at NH and Iowa where the Republican primaries or caucuses have occurred, and now we have some pretty good evidence there is fraud
in SC just 10 days before the next primary.
This election year could end up being a bigger court battle than the 2000 year one with Bush and Gore. I honestly have little confidence Romney will
win SC just because he is Mormon. I am initially from SC and they are mostly christian there with many of them evangelicals. So I don't see him doing
all that well there. It might be 2012, but many in SC still don't accept "unconventional" forms of religions. Now, I'm in no way implying Romney is
involved in the SC fraud, but if he does even fairly well there...it needs to be looked into. Nothing personal..I just know how people from SC
are....no matter what they still say in public.
Lookout though...this Republican election might come down to duels or sword fights or who knows what from what we have seen so far.
For the record though...personally..I think 900 dead people voting in SC..is a little low of an estimation.
