If you are still buying into the Democrat’s lie that there is no voter fraud and we don’t need tougher laws – like Photo ID’s – have a look at this post giving the details of 4 Democrats who demonstrate why their party is so set against tougher laws.
Four Democrats involved in an upstate New York voter fraud scandal were sentenced yesterday for their respective roles, receiving punishments ranging from hundreds of hours of community service, to jail time. The group consisted of a former city clerk, an ex-City Councilman, a Democrat operative, and a Committeeman who a year ago had declared ballot forgery in upstate New York to be “a normal political tactic“.
Those sentenced yesterday were cooperating witnesses in a scheme which saw dozens of voters testify that absentee ballots had been submitted in their names during the 2009 Working Families Party (WFP) primary. Securing the WFP line allowed Democrat candidates to obtain more votes in the general election.
Two others were tried together earlier in the year but a mistrial was declared after jurors were unable to sort through the hundreds of charges that both faced.
Later, tried separately, Michael LoPorto was acquitted when a WFP operative “augmented” her testimony, and Ed McDonough similarly was acquitted after a colleague so egregiously altered his testimony that the judge struck everything he said from the record.
Despite the questionable circumstances surrounding those acquittals, witnesses throughout both trials provided a glimpse into the seedy political underworld in upstate New York.
Democrats preyed on those they felt were the most vulnerable members of society, those making easy targets for their voter fraud scheme.
They targeted immigrants who struggled with the English language and had little knowledge of the U.S. election process.
They targeted college kids with little money, paying them for their voter registration cards.
They targeted people living in low-income housing because there was a sense that poor people were “less likely to ask any questions”.
They tricked mentally disabled individuals into signing over their absentee ballots.
