NewsMax is reporting that four Democrat officials and political operatives have pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal an election in Troy, N.Y.

The group forged signatures on applications for absentee ballots and on the ballots themselves in a 2009 primary of the Working Families Party, which was affiliated with now-defunct community group ACORN.

Voters whose signatures were forged expressed outrage to Fox.  "I feel extremely violated," said Brian Suozzo.

Former Troy Democratic City Clerk William McInerney, Democratic Councilman John Brown, and Democratic political operatives Anthony Renna and Anthony DeFiglio entered guilty pleas in the case.  They admitted to one count of various charges, ranging from forgery to falsifying business records, and criminal possession of a forged instrument.

In November 2009, DeFiglio told New York State police investigators that forging absentee ballots represented business as usual and was common practice in all political circles.

Troy City Council President Clem Campana pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges including falsifying business records and illegal voting.  City Councilman Michael LoPorto and Democratic County Elections Commissioner Edward McDonough were indicted earlier this year and are set to go on trial for felony charges in January.

Obama violated federal law earlier this year by funding his pals at ACORN, which is nothing more than a federally-funded, ongoing criminal enterprise.
  
The rules and the law mean nothing to these people.  The end always justifies the means
    
And just wait till next year!

Election fraud?  Sorry, vote's over

Bob Unruh is reporting that the judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals have ruled that election fraud suspected in the 2008 presidential campaign essentially was canceled by the inauguration of Barack Obama.

Fraud put Obama on 2008 ballot

WND is reporting that two Democrats in Indiana have been found guilty of submitting unauthorized names on the petition that placed then-Sen. Barack Obama on the 2008 presidential election primary ballot, meaning he likely did not qualify.

Fox News reports the jury in South Bend found guilty on all counts former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Party chairman Butch Morgan Jr. and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe.

The two faced accusations of petition fraud and forgery, as well as falsely making a petition.

The verdicts raise anew questions about election fraud by Democrats, a subject that was analyzed after the 2012 election.

The report found vote fraud occurred in the 2012 presidential election and cumulatively was likely enough to decide the outcome.

"In reality, although no single instance or aspect of vote fraud was likely enough to tip the election for Obama, the aggregate of their [Democrats] corrupt activities -- including illegal campaign donations, taking advantage of states without voter ID requirements, military ballots delivered too late … may well have been," the analysis said.

Fox News reported that two former Indiana elections board officials who pleaded guilty said Morgan told Democrat officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Hillary Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race.

Prosecutor Stan Levco told Fox, "I think this helped uphold the integrity of the electoral system. Their verdict of guilt is not a verdict against Democrats, but for honest and fair elections."

Affidavits citing the testimony of former Board of Registration worker Lucas Burkett said the scheme was created in January 2008. Burkett reportedly was aboard the plan at first but later dropped out. Fox News reported he waited three years to reveal the scheme.

Fox News notes that if revelations about any forgeries were raised during the election, the petitions could have been challenged at that time.

A candidate who did not qualify with enough legitimate signatures at the time could have been removed from the ballot.

State law in Indiana requires candidates to have 500 signatures from each of the nine congressional districts to qualify. But in St. Joseph County, Obama qualified with only 534.

Prosecutors alleged that nine of the Obama petition pages apparently were forged, and each contained up to 10 names, bringing doubt on up to 90 names.

"If faked, [they] could have brought the Obama total below the legal limit required to qualify," Fox News reported.

Fox reported it was told by "numerous voters" they did not sign their names, nor did they authorize their names to be used.

"That’s not my signature," said Charity Rorie, a mother of four. "It’s scary, it’s shocking. It definitely is illegal."

Added Robert Hunter Jr., "I did not sign for Barack Obama."

WND’s extensive report on fraud in the 2012 race looked at claims that Obama, in some districts, got 100 percent of the vote, questions about absentee ballots and efforts by Democrats to prevent poll watchers from observing the election.

Some of the issues that were uncovered:

•  Seventy-five GOP vote inspectors were  ordered to leave Philadelphia poll locations by Democrat poll judges. One judge was  caught on audio. A  court order sent them back but it’s unknown what happened when they were gone. These poll locations were all within the 59 precincts where Romney received no votes.
•  In Philadelphia, the Community Voters Project, an ACORN clone that employs some former ACORN workers,  shredded Republican voter registrations. It’s  not the first time they have been in trouble.
•  The Florida  AFL-CIO threatened True the Vote and Tampa Fair Vote with legal action for submitting voter registration challenges.
•  Maryland Representative  Elijah Cummings issued a highly publicized threat against True the Vote and Election Integrity Maryland just for checking voter rolls. EIM found 11,000 questionable registrations, including 1,566 dead voters. The Maryland Board of Elections took no action.
•  Cummings also attacked the Ohio Voter Integrity Project with the same baseless claims.
•  Think Progress  falsely claimed True the Vote was "under investigation" by Rep. Cummings, when in fact he has no legal authority to do so.
•  Despite  overwhelming nonpartisan public support for voter ID laws, Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department and liberal jurists have delayed, emasculated or defeated ID laws in Texas,  Wisconsin, South Carolina, Arizona and Pennsylvania.
•  Holder has  vowed to fight voter ID laws as restricting voters’ rights.
•  The Obama administration "spiked investigations" of eight states that had major voter roll problems.
•  The Holder Justice Department  conspired with Project Vote on National Voter Registration Act (aka Motor Voter) enforcement lawsuits, which force state and local agencies to become, essentially, low income voter registration drives.
•  In 2009 DOJ announced to its attorneys that it would not enforce voter roll maintenance laws because it  wouldn’t increase voter turnout.

The report also found the election rolls nationwide in shambles.  Pew Research Center published a report revealing election rolls in a shambles nationwide. It found:

•  24 million invalid or inaccurate voter registrations
•  1.8 million deceased voters
•  2.75 million registered in multiple states.

The WND report also focused on the mechanics of the election: voting machines.

There were a number of complaints about electronic voting machines that tallied votes for Democrats despite a Republican vote and a few instances of the opposite case.

•  Voters in Pueblo County, Colo., complained that their votes were being changed to Obama,  reported local NBC affiliate KOAA.
•  Maryland congressional candidate and veteran investigative journalist Ken Timmerman reported many voters claiming this happened to them, lodging complaints with vote judges. Timmerman has requested to see voting machine records.
•  Maryland Delegate Kathy Afzali and Carroll County Commissioner Richard Rothschild  have requested the FBI impound two electronic voting machines suspected of switching votes based on complaints from other voters, including a state official.
•  Robert Ashcroft, a Republican poll watcher in Allentown, Pa., reported that about 5 to 10 percent of electronic votes would "change the selection back to default -- to Obama."
•  EVM problems were also  reported to have occurred in Ohio, Nevada, North Carolina and Texas.
•  A 2008 Fox News report showed how electronic voting machines can be infected with a computer virus to change votes. A  Princeton University study in 2006 found the same thing.

And the fraud didn’t go unnoticed. A few of the higher-profile cases:

•  Patrick Moran, son of longtime U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, was  caught on video by James O’Keefe’s Veritas Project, telling an undercover journalist how to commit vote fraud.
•  Other Veritas videos showed Obama campaign officials in Texas, New Jersey and New York providing multiple forms to journalists posing as voters so that they could vote in two or more states.
•  On Election Day, Veritas reporters  recorded poll officials on camera telling voters not to vote for Romney.
•  The Obama campaign continues to accept illegal donations from other countries. WND’s Aaron Klein proved it by donating to the Obama campaign twice under the name "Osama bin Laden" using a Pakistani web address.
•  WND has  filed a complaint with the FEC demanding an investigation of overseas donations to the Obama campaign.
•  In 2008, the Obama campaign  accepted almost $30,000 from Palestinian donors.
•  A Korean interpreter in Flushing, N.Y.,  directed Korean voters to vote Democrat. He was expelled from the poll.
•  Two cases of  forged votes were reported in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., by Republicans who discovered their votes had already been made.
•  Non-citizens were charged with voting illegally in Austin, Minn.
•  Cases of  double voting in Ohio are being investigated.
•   Non-citizen allegedly voted in Iowa
•  Double voting is being investigated in North Carolina
•  NBC reported  dead voters voting in California
•  Mentally disabled were coaxed to vote for Obama in North Carolina
•  Widespread absentee vote fraud is being investigated in South Texas
•  A non-English-speaking, under-18 youth reported he was "told he can vote."
•  Many other cases

Sen. Owen Hill finds the right words

Colorado Senator Owen Hill found the best words to describe a complete overhaul of Colorado's election scheme. If signed into law, the bill would allow for the same lax standards of registration and voting as is currently written into CO law but extended to election day. For registration it's merely the last 4 digits of a Social Security number if the registrant claims they don't have a Colorado ID. For casting a ballot the standard is as low as an unspecified utility bill, a pay stub, or a bank statement. In theory a person could walk into a vote center give any four unverifiable digits, a "utility" bill and cast a ballot.

NAACP President offers bizarre reason for abolishing Voter ID laws: Transgenders

Francesca Chambers is reporting that National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President Benjamin Jealous threw out a bizarre, new reason Friday for Voter ID laws to be banned in the U.S. –- transgenders.

Yes, you read that correctly.

At a Netroots Nation panel Friday on “voting rights,” Jealous argued that in addition to all the other reasons he thinks Americans shouldn’t have to show a photo ID when voting, Voter ID laws should be abolished because they put transgender Americans at a disadvantage.

“As many people know, I have an adopted brother who’s transgender and he typically doesn’t dress the way he does when he hangs out in the Tenderloin when he goes to a government office,” Jealous said, referencing a notorious LGBT community in San Francisco. “And so if you show his ID you know and he would hold it up to his face, it looks like two different people.”

Using that logic, transgender Americans also shouldn’t have to use an ID to get on planes, buy liquor or perform any other activity that legally requires people to prove their identity.

Considering that only .23 percent of Americans identify themselves as transgender, according to a 2011 study by UCLA, which was the most recent research published on this issue, the "but transgenders" argument is as statistically insignificant as it is illogical.

Looks like Lefties need to keep searching for new excuses to stop voter fraud measures like Voter ID laws from being enacted. Because arguing that making life easier for the 700,000 transgenders in America should take precedence over making sure the 11 million illegal immigrants in America can’t vote isn’t much better than progressives’ previous argument that Voter ID laws disproportionately hinder minorities from voting. And we all know that argument is working so well for them.

Tell the "Nutroots" that if this guy needs to show his ID to vote, then everyone should show their ID to vote:

Team Obama touts Kenyan program to obtain national ID cards for voter registration

Jeryl Bier is reporting that as Barack Obama and his family continue their tour of Africa, the White House put out a Fact Sheet entitled "U.S. Support for Strengthening Democratic Institutions, Rule of Law, and Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa." One of the first items highlighted by the White House is a $53 million program in Kenya that helps young people "obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration."

Civil society and independent media play a critical role in any vibrant democracy.  Across sub-Saharan Africa, the United States supports efforts to ensure civil society organizations and independent media can organize, advocate, and raise awareness with governments and the private sector to improve political processes, transparency, and government performance.  Examples include: 

• In Kenya, the $53 million Yes Youth Can program empowers nearly one million Kenyan youth to use their voices for advocacy in national and local policy-making, while also creating economic opportunities.  In advance of Kenya’s March 2013 general elections, Yes Youth Can’s “My ID My Life” campaign helped 500,000 youth obtain National identification cards, a prerequisite to voter registration, and carried out a successful nationwide campaign with Kenyan civic organizations to elicit peace pledges from all presidential aspirants. [emphasis added]

At an August 2012 press briefing, Jay Carney had the following to say about a Texas voter ID law:

And on the voter ID case, I can tell you that, as you know, this administration believes it should be easier for eligible citizens to vote -- to register and vote. We should not be imposing unnecessary obstacles or barriers to voter participation.

The Democrats are already preparing for 2014

John Hinderaker is reporting that this email arrived yesterday from MoveOn.org, whose communications are generally indistinguishable from those of the Democrat Party. The subject line was “New York Times stunner.”

Republicans are trying to steal control of the U.S. Senate by making it harder to vote.

Pitch in to help defend the right to vote and stop Republicans from stealing the 2014 election.

This plea requires a certain chutzpah, as stealing elections at the polls has always been a Democratic specialty. I think what they are actually referring to is Republican efforts to ensure honest voting so that Democrats can’t steal elections.

Dear MoveOn.org member,

This is stunning: The New York Times’ data wizard Nate Silver -- who predicted the 2012 election results state-by-state with uncanny accuracy -- is now projecting that, “Republicans [are] close to even-money to win control of the [Senate] after next year’s elections.”

It’s the worst-case scenario: Republicans win a majority in the Senate, and we can kiss the rest of President Obama’s agenda goodbye.

So what is the rest of Barack Obama’s agenda? Inquiring minds want to know! But there evidently aren’t many inquiring minds among the Democrats, as these partisan communications never breathe a word of any positive program. They are exclusively about hating Republicans.

To make things worse, they have a plan to steal the 2014 election starting right now by making it harder for seniors, students, poor people, and African-Americans to vote.

This is insane, yet, repeated insistently and frequently enough, it has an effect.

Back in May, the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act.

Thankfully, yes. Democrats act as though gutting the grotesquely discriminatory provisions of the Voting Rights Act is the same as gutting voting rights.

Since then, Republicans in key states have been racing to purge voter rolls…

Yes, to purge them of dead people. Does anyone seriously believe that there are Republican proposals to purge voter rolls of legitimate, living voters, who are registered in only one precinct? Leaders of the Democratic Party apparently believe that their followers are dumb enough to believe exactly that. If you get enough communications from the Democratic Party, this is the overriding conclusion you come away with: the Democrats’ leaders believe that their voters are idiots.

…eliminate early voting, and require new photo IDs to vote -- anything they can do to make it harder to vote.

What they mean is, anything they can do to make it harder to commit voter fraud.

And in an election as close as this one will be, even 1-2 percentage points could turn the tide.

Which is why the Dems have long viewed voter fraud as their ace in the hole, and why they are determined to preserve the fraud option.

You think the fights over the budget, ObamaCare, and immigration are bad now? Imagine Mitch McConnell in control of the U.S. Senate. Try getting any pro-choice judge confirmed for the Supreme Court against a GOP majority. Or stopping cuts to Social Security. Forget it.

Paranoid fantasies are a staple of these messages. Presumably Obama will only nominate pro-abortion justices to the Supreme Court, and they will be confirmed just like every other pro-abortion judge who has been nominated since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973. The last Supreme Court nominee of a Democratic president to be voted down in the Senate was Wheeler Hazard Peckham, nominated by Grover Cleveland in 1894. Only Republican nominees are ever voted down in the Senate. And what “cuts to Social Security” are they talking about? None are in the offing, for better or worse, and President Obama could veto any such cuts should Congress propose them.

The 2014 election is hugely important -- and we can’t let Republicans steal it now. So if you think you’ll want to get involved sometime next year, I ask you: Please get engaged right now.

We’re raising $250,000 this week to launch a "Let Us Vote" Campaign to fight back right now—while it can make the greatest difference. Will you help?

"Let us vote." Good grief!

Yes, I’ll contribute $5 so we can fight back.

How blatant are the GOP’s efforts? North Carolina just passed what’s widely being called the most extreme voter suppression law in the country. It requires Voter ID, reduces early voting, and ends same-day registration.

Why there? Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina is just one of four Democrats up for re-election next year in a state won by Mitt Romney. If Republicans can reduce turnout in North Carolina and defeat her, it’ll drastically improve their odds of taking the Senate.

A large majority of Americans believe that only legal, registered voters should participate in elections, and that each voter should cast only one ballot. The purpose of voter ID laws is to advance that objective. But to the Democrats, these are "extreme voter suppression laws." What they really mean is, they are voter fraud suppression laws. That is why the Democrats don’t like them.

To reverse the effects of this effort, we have a 3-pronged plan of attack:

1. We’ll launch state-by-state campaigns to roll back discriminatory voter suppression laws, rules and regulations when state legislatures are back in session.

2. We’ll prepare a traditional and online media blitz, highlighting both the actions of extreme politicians like North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory and the stories of heroic individual voters whose rights are being trampled.

Yes, we can’t wait to see those heroic stories! No doubt they will provide fertile soil for fact-checking.

3. We’ll organize an aggressive counter-intimidation campaign to mobilize the very same voters who are being disenfranchised. This tactic was proven to work last election, when showing voters what Republicans are really up to actually motivated unlikely voters to overcome barriers to get to the polls.

I think that is correct: with their policy initiatives revealed as failures, and with their intellectual cupboard bare of new ideas, the Democrats have learned that organizing hate campaigns against the Republicans that stir up racial divisions and mislead poorly-informed voters is their best strategy. They will pursue it again between now and November 2014.

We helped beat back the GOP voter suppression machine in 2012 -- and we can do it again -- but all of us need to help. And we can’t afford to wait until next year. Are you in to support our “Let Us Vote” campaign?

Yes, I’ll contribute $5.

Thanks for all you do.

As noted above, the remarkable thing about the appeals the Democratic Party makes to its faithful is that they are completely devoid of any reference to public policy. They contain no facts and assert no arguments. They contain no positive element. They simply paint Republicans as villains and urge their followers to contribute to the Democratic team. Hey, the Obama administration, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi may be complete failures, but at least they aren’t Republicans! That is the pitch.

Will it work in 2014? I don’t know, but it certainly did in 2012. I wouldn’t bet against it this time

"Republicans are trying to 'steal' control of the U.S. Senate by making it harder to vote: multiple times under phony names.

This is like a burglar complaining that homeowners are 'stealing' his way to make money by putting locks on their doors. These Lib/Progressive Red Diaper Babies really think that they have the 'right' to commit all kinds of criminal acts and that honest people should not be allowed to interfere with their criminal schemes.  Obamunist double-think.

Chris Matthews admits voter fraud exists -- points finger at Democrats

Western Journalism is reporting that "Hardball" host Chris "Tingles" Matthews admits that voter fraud exists, but says that since it doesn’t change the results of state elections it really doesn’t matter.

Mentions "big city machines" -- names Chicago and Philly -- Democrat fiefdoms.

The fact is wherever there are progressive Democrats, there is voter fraud.

DA: 2 Pennsylvania township Dems charged with voter fraud

The Associated Press is reporting that two Democratic western Pennsylvania township officials were charged with voter fraud for allegedly soliciting absentee votes from elderly residents who weren't eligible to cast such ballots.

An investigative grand jury recommended the charges filed Friday by state police.

"I think every citizen should have faith that the electoral system be played on an even playing field with the rules being obeyed and, when violated, the violators be penalized," said Fayette County District Attorney Jack Heneks, who is a Democrat in a county where nearly 70 percent of registered voters also belong to the party.

William Geary, 62, and Thomas Keefer, 58, both Bullskin Township supervisors, will be scheduled for a preliminary hearing after they receive mailed court summonses advising them of the charges.
 
The grand jury was convened after Democratic nominee David Butler complained after losing to Keefer in the November 2011 general election by nine votes. Keefer, an incumbent, had lost the May 2011 Democratic primary to Butler, but got 741 votes compared with 732 for Butler after waging a write-in campaign that November.

The grand jury found that Keefer and Geary, another incumbent, visited 13 elderly voters' homes to help them complete the ballots despite knowing the voters were physically able to vote in-person on Election Day. Both men also failed to fill out declarations of physical disability with the ballots, which certify that the voters wouldn't be able to vote in-person, the grand jury found.

The grand jury found Keefer obtained six votes that way, while Geary obtained seven more votes for Keefer the same way.

Keefer's defense attorney, Jack Purcell, said his client is innocent. Geary couldn't immediately be reached for comment, and he doesn't have an attorney listed in court papers.

ObamaCare is the "biggest voter registration fraud scheme in history"

Matthew Boyle is reporting that conservatives point to the ObamaCare website exploiting a strange loophole in the National Voting Rights Act to question whether the President's signature healthcare law had a political motive, as well.

Several election integrity activists have alleged that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or ObamaCare, does not appear to have been an effort to conduct healthcare reform to fix what was described in 2009 and 2010 as a broken healthcare system.

The law passed Congress with just Democratic Party support. Instead of being an honest attempt to fix America’s healthcare woes, “I think [it] is the biggest voter registration fraud scheme in the history of the world,” said Gregg Phillips, the founder of the election integrity group Voters Trust, in an interview with Breitbart News Wednesday morning.

Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht of True The Vote, another election integrity group, cite as proof what left-wing organizations are saying about how they plan to use ObamaCare. Demos, a left-wing organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, published a report earlier this year titled: “Building a Healthy Democracy: Registering 68 Million People to Vote Through Health Benefit Exchanges.”

On page six of the report, author Lisa Danetz argues that ObamaCare “will enroll 68 million individuals.”

“The ACA [Affordable Care Act] requires subsidized health insurance to be made available to low-income Americans, through a single application process, administered and operated in each state by an entity called a ‘Health Benefit Exchange,’” Danetz writes. “Governments must establish this application process by October 2013.”

Danetz is describing healthcare.gov, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) website that has thus far faced enormous problems, forcing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to testify before Congress on Wednesday about the program’s ongoing failings.

Engelbrecht and Phillips believe that all of those promises about healthcare were never meant to be true. They believe one of the underlying intents is to collect personal data and voter registration information and share it with the federal government, which would in turn share it with left-wing groups -- in ObamaCare they are called “Navigators” -- to conduct what is essentially a taxpayer-funded Get-Out-The-Vote operation for the Democratic Party.

“Approximately 68 million individuals, most of them low-income, will eventually enroll in subsidized health care under the law,” Demos’ Danetz writes in the report. 

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that approximately 16 million people will apply for health insurance through various subsidized programs in 2014, an additional seven million will apply in 2015 and an additional ten million will apply in 2016. By 2022, Medicaid and CHIP enrollment is expected to reach 43 million individuals, a number that includes those enrolled before the ACA plus those that become eligible as a result of the ACA. Affordable Insurance Exchanges will are expected to enroll an additional 25 million individuals.

On page seven of the Demos report, Danetz ties Obamacare back to the 1993 passage of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), colloquially known as “Motor Voter” because it is the law that allowed voter registration at places like the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). “In each state, a Health Benefit Exchange will handle the majority of Covered Transactions for Insurance Affordability Programs,” she writes. “The ACA requires a single streamlined application process for all programs, administered in each state by the Health Benefit Exchange. The Health Benefit Exchange will also handle renewals and changes of address for a certain subset of individuals who obtain health insurance through programs under the ACA.”

Danetz lays out how 17 states and Washington, D.C., have elected to run their own exchanges, seven states have opted for so-called “partnership exchanges,” and 26 states have decided to become a part of the federal exchange. “Under the NVRA, Health Benefit Exchanges are entities that administer public assistance, and, as such, are required to incorporate voter registration services into operation of Insurance Affordability Programs,” she writes. Throughout the rest of the report, Danetz lays out the nuts and bolts of how the left plans to use Obamacare as a voter registration tool.

Phillips, the founder of election integrity group Voters Trust and an expert in analyzing big data, told Breitbart News in an in-person interview Wednesday that the left also attempted this in the early years of the Clinton administration. 

“All of the pieces and parts for this story have been in place for years until the exchanges were created,” Phillips said. “The exchange is sort of the catalyst... We didn’t know this until the feds started showing up on the states’ doors with tens of thousands of cases. In Texas, they have 25,000. You’ve got every state all over the country seeing these cases.” By “cases,” Phillips is talking about Medicaid enrollment numbers increasing.

Phillips said Obamacare has nothing to do with reforming people’s healthcare coverage. “When HealthCare.gov was set up, everyone was led to believe that this was about the exchange and the insurance exchange and getting coverage and what your premium is going to be, and what your deductible is going to be and all that,” he said. “It’s one piece [of what the website really is]. To get there, however, the website makes a suggestion based on your income. If you say you make zero income, you’re not going to the exchange because you’re not qualified for it. You’re going to the Medicaid side of it.” 

Income verification is not required for these submissions, so that is where much of the fear of fraud comes from. Phillips noted that Obamacare has technically undone many of the fraud protections at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that came as part of the 2002 Improper Payments Act.

Engelbrecht, the head of election integrity group True The Vote, told Breitbart News in a phone interview on Wednesday that this voter information is collected via the Motor Voter law. Motor Voter, Engelbrecht noted, “was among the first bills signed by Bill Clinton.”

“This was never about the exchanges, there’s no question about that,” Engelbrecht said of Obamacare. 

That’s why the exchanges seem now to be so ill-conceived; they weren't meant to be the focus. The administration put their time and energy and effort into developing pipes into 50 states so that they could funnel through Medicaid enrollees and voter registrations. That’s what this is about. That’s the game. As part of that strategy, we'll have millions of new voters by virtue of the new Medicaid patients that are flooding in. And if you legitimately qualify for Medicaid, so be it, but according to security experts that specialize in identifying Medicaid fraud, the federal government is not adequately checking applicant qualifications. The floodgates have been opened and now both our healthcare system and the integrity of our electoral process are in jeopardy.

After the states get the Medicaid applications forwarded to them from healthcare.gov, they will have to sort through hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of applications that are automatically generated by a computer system. Since the states likely cannot handle the high number of applications expected to come in, most of those applications will likely be hastily approved. 

After an application with a voter registration form attached to it is approved, an actual voter registration card is mailed out automatically. No human being ever sees the card between the time someone logs onto healthcare.gov to type any information, true or untrue, into the system and when a card is mailed out. At that point, when the card shows up in the mail, whoever receives it just needs to sign it and mail it back to the authorities, and they will have registered to vote without ever being in front of any official person. 

To pull this off, technically, Phillips notes, President Obama’s administration is interpreting a visit to healthcare.gov as a visit to a physical government office. “The law is clear,” Phillips said of Motor Voter. “It states that all of this [voter registration] has to happen in an office, face-to-face with an individual. The very idea that I get to open up my website and call that my office, does that mean al Qaeda on their 5,000 websites, that those are their offices? Of course not. It’s ridiculous.” Nonetheless, the administration has been able to pull that off thus far.

“What the portal does, is it forces you to get out,” Phillips said of the ObamaCare website. 

It forces you to say, "I do not want to register to vote." If you don’t do that, it forces you through to registration. When it gets to the states, like Texas, it’s going to send you the voter registration no matter what you put in the exchange. It’s going to mail it to your house and no human ever touches it and no government official or even any person ever eyeballed you to verify you are a real person or what.

Unlike at the DMV or other government agencies, Engelbrecht said with ObamaCare signups it is assumed people will say yes when asked if they want to register to vote -- and they have to specify they would like to opt-out of voter registration if they choose not to do so. Because of this change in philosophy from how, say, the DMV registers people to vote, Engelbrecht said it allows left-wing organizations to search and target voters using the federal government collected in a way that has never been seen before.

With ObamaCare, "Applicants are prompted mid-application with a request to register to vote,” Engelbrecht said. "That’s the psychology: 'After asking pages of questions related to my healthcare, now you’re suggesting to me that I should register to vote, okay, sure, whatever, why would I risk upsetting the apple cart by opting out?' Most people will just do what they think the government wants them to do. What they want is free healthcare."

Also, since technically the Motor Voter law requires that anyone who is registering to vote can receive help if they want it from those government officials at the agency they are registering to vote with, the federal government has been able to create a task force called “Navigators” who will help people register to vote and sign up for Obamacare by visiting people’s homes. The data that has been collected thus far through healthcare.gov, and data that will be collected moving forward, will likely be shared with the Navigators groups.

The Navigators groups consist of organizations like former ACORN organizers, Organizing For America (OFA) -- Obama’s old campaign spinoff -- and other groups that have built themselves on winning elections for Democrats. 

Engelbrecht said people should listen carefully to what the left is saying, because they have publicly discussed this aspect of the Obamacare website. Danetz’s Demos report earlier this year, Engelbrecht notes, is hardly the only place the left has talked openly about this. Liberals have made similar suggestions on the pages of Mother Jones magazine and on the liberal Daily Kos website, both in late-September pieces. Talking Points Memo, another left-wing media outlet, has covered it as well

A coalition of left-wing organizations -- Demos, HealthCare for America NOW, Project Vote, Fair Elections Legal Network, and the League of Women Voters -- have discussed elements of this plan specifically in open, publicly-available comments made to HHS about the implementation of the Navigators program. 

Rush Limbaugh hinted at the breaking of this story on his program on Wednesday, calling it a “slam dunk” theory of what is “really going on” with Obamacare. “Remember when we first learned who was getting money to set up exchanges in California?” Limbaugh asked listeners. “The SEIU covered California; it was a bunch of left-wing activists. And the NAACP. And from that universe of people, the navigators are hired. What do you think is really going on? Voter registration. In addition to you going to get your healthcare, there is obviously massive Democrat voter registration going on at these exchanges.”

Limbaugh even cited Danetz’s report for Demos, asking listeners: “What if the end result here, in addition to everything else, is 68 million new registered Democrat voters?”

Illinois to begin issuing driver's licenses to illegal aliens in December

Rebel Pundit is reporting that as of December 3, the State of Illinois will begin accepting applications from illegal aliens for state issued driver's licenses. State officials estimate as many as 500,000 illegal aliens currently living in the state could apply for the licenses.

Governor Pat Quinn signed the law which created the "temporary visitor driver's license" almost a year ago.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

Supporters say the change will make Illinois roads safer because immigrants will undergo driver's tests and be required to have insurance for the license to be valid.

Critics fear fraud and abuse, with some lawmakers saying immigrants living here illegally should be fingerprinted to qualify. Immigrant rights organizations fought back on that idea, arguing that it would deter participation among a population that often is distrustful of law enforcement and other government agencies.

To qualify, applicants must prove they have lived in Illinois for a least a year and show they are ineligible for a Social Security card. Documents that will be accepted include a copy of a lease, utility bills and a valid passport or consular identification card.

Illegal aliens who wish to receive state approved driving privileges will be required to pass a vision, written, and road test. Services will be offered in Spanish, Polish, Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and English.

The state plans to process 100,000 illegal alien driver's license applications annually. According to Secretary of State Jesse White, getting the program up and running will cost $1 million.

There have been no recent announcements regarding improving American citizens' experiences dealing with the Illinois Secretary of State. Wait times have reportedly been as long as 3 hours or more to renew a legal resident driver's license.

What this report doesn't tell you is that when these illegals get their driver's license they are also registered to vote.

The National Voter Registration Act requires states to provide people with an opportunity to submit voter-registration applications for federal (i.e., House, Senate, and Presidential) elections.

ObamaCare is the "biggest voter registration fraud scheme in history"

Matthew Boyle is reporting that several election integrity activists have alleged that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), or ObamaCare, does not appear to have been an effort to conduct healthcare reform to fix what was described in 2009 and 2010 as a broken healthcare system.

The law passed Congress with just Democratic Party support. Instead of being an honest attempt to fix America's healthcare woes, "I think [it] is the biggest voter registration fraud scheme in the history of the world," said Gregg Phillips, the founder of the election integrity group Voters Trust, in an interview with Breitbart News Wednesday morning.

Phillips and Catherine Engelbrecht of True The Vote, another election integrity group, cite as proof what left-wing organizations are saying about how they plan to use ObamaCare. Demos, a left-wing organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros, published a report earlier this year titled: "Building a Healthy Democracy: Registering 68 Million People to Vote Through Health Benefit Exchanges."

On page six of the report, author Lisa Danetz argues that ObamaCare "will enroll 68 million individuals."

"The ACA [Affordable Care Act] requires subsidized health insurance to be made available to low-income Americans, through a single application process, administered and operated in each state by an entity called a 'Health Benefit Exchange,'" Danetz writes. "Governments must establish this application process by October 2013."

Danetz is describing healthcare.gov, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) website that has thus far faced enormous problems, forcing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to testify before Congress on Wednesday about the program's ongoing failings.

Engelbrecht and Phillips believe that all of those promises about healthcare were never meant to be true. They believe one of the underlying intents is to collect personal data and voter registration information and share it with the federal government, which would in turn share it with left-wing groups -- in ObamaCare they are called "Navigators" -- to conduct what is essentially a taxpayer-funded Get-Out-The-Vote operation for the Democratic Party.

"Approximately 68 million individuals, most of them low-income, will eventually enroll in subsidized health care under the law," Demos' Danetz writes in the report.

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that approximately 16 million people will apply for health insurance through various subsidized programs in 2014, an additional seven million will apply in 2015 and an additional ten million will apply in 2016. By 2022, Medicaid and CHIP enrollment is expected to reach 43 million individuals, a number that includes those enrolled before the ACA plus those that become eligible as a result of the ACA. Affordable Insurance Exchanges will are expected to enroll an additional 25 million individuals.

On page seven of the Demos report, Danetz ties ObamaCare back to the 1993 passage of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), colloquially known as "Motor Voter" because it is the law that allowed voter registration at places like the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). "In each state, a Health Benefit Exchange will handle the majority of Covered Transactions for Insurance Affordability Programs," she writes. "The ACA requires a single streamlined application process for all programs, administered in each state by the Health Benefit Exchange. The Health Benefit Exchange will also handle renewals and changes of address for a certain subset of individuals who obtain health insurance through programs under the ACA."

Danetz lays out how 17 states and Washington, D.C., have elected to run their own exchanges, seven states have opted for so-called "partnership exchanges," and 26 states have decided to become a part of the federal exchange. "Under the NVRA, Health Benefit Exchanges are entities that administer public assistance, and, as such, are required to incorporate voter registration services into operation of Insurance Affordability Programs," she writes. Throughout the rest of the report, Danetz lays out the nuts and bolts of how the left plans to use ObamaCare as a voter registration tool.

Phillips, the founder of election integrity group Voters Trust and an expert in analyzing big data, told Breitbart News in an in-person interview Wednesday that the Left also attempted this in the early years of the Clinton administration.

"All of the pieces and parts for this story have been in place for years until the exchanges were created," Phillips said. "The exchange is sort of the catalyst... We didn't know this until the feds started showing up on the states' doors with tens of thousands of cases. In Texas, they have 25,000. You've got every state all over the country seeing these cases." By "cases," Phillips is talking about Medicaid enrollment numbers increasing.

Phillips said ObamaCare has nothing to do with reforming people's healthcare coverage. "When HealthCare.gov was set up, everyone was led to believe that this was about the exchange and the insurance exchange and getting coverage and what your premium is going to be, and what your deductible is going to be and all that," he said. "It's one piece [of what the website really is]. To get there, however, the website makes a suggestion based on your income. If you say you make zero income, you're not going to the exchange because you're not qualified for it. You're going to the Medicaid side of it."

Income verification is not required for these submissions, so that is where much of the fear of fraud comes from. Phillips noted that ObamaCare has technically undone many of the fraud protections at the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that came as part of the 2002 Improper Payments Act.

Engelbrecht, the head of election integrity group True The Vote, told Breitbart News in a phone interview on Wednesday that this voter information is collected via the Motor Voter law. Motor Voter, Engelbrecht noted, "was among the first bills signed by Bill Clinton."

"This was never about the exchanges, there's no question about that," Engelbrecht said of ObamaCare.

That's why the exchanges seem now to be so ill-conceived; they weren't meant to be the focus. The administration put their time and energy and effort into developing pipes into 50 states so that they could funnel through Medicaid enrollees and voter registrations. That's what this is about. That's the game. As part of that strategy, we'll have millions of new voters by virtue of the new Medicaid patients that are flooding in. And if you legitimately qualify for Medicaid, so be it, but according to security experts that specialize in identifying Medicaid fraud, the federal government is not adequately checking applicant qualifications. The floodgates have been opened and now both our healthcare system and the integrity of our electoral process are in jeopardy.

After the states get the Medicaid applications forwarded to them from healthcare.gov, they will have to sort through hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of applications that are automatically generated by a computer system. Since the states likely cannot handle the high number of applications expected to come in, most of those applications will likely be hastily approved.

After an application with a voter registration form attached to it is approved, an actual voter registration card is mailed out automatically. No human being ever sees the card between the time someone logs onto healthcare.gov to type any information, true or untrue, into the system and when a card is mailed out. At that point, when the card shows up in the mail, whoever receives it just needs to sign it and mail it back to the authorities, and they will have registered to vote without ever being in front of any official person.

O'Reilly questions Obama election fraud

John Crudele is reporting that in the home stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, from August to September, the unemployment rate fell sharply -- raising eyebrows from Wall Street to Washington.

The decline -- from 8.1 percent in August to 7.8 percent in September -- might not have been all it seemed. The numbers, according to a reliable source, were manipulated.

And the Census Bureau, which does the unemployment survey, knew it.

Just two years before the presidential election, the Census Bureau had caught an employee fabricating data that went into the unemployment report, which is one of the most closely watched measures of the economy.

And a knowledgeable source says the deception went beyond that one employee -- that it escalated at the time President Obama was seeking reelection in 2012 and continues today.

"He's not the only one," said the source, who asked to remain anonymous for now but is willing to talk with the Labor Department and Congress if asked.

The unemployment numbers have been manipulated under Obama for a long time. They don't report the U6 anymore. And the 'Unemployment numbers" are being reduced by giving "Obama preferred" hard-core unemployed Permanent Disability status. Also some are simply joining the "Underground Economy" like they did under Jimmy Carter. But mowing yards and cleaning houses is not a real economy.

The labor force participation rate is steadily down, while poverty rate is up, welfare rolls expand continuously, this is the Obama's Recovery. Like Obama's everything else, based on lies and promises, without any substance, meaning, or even real intention. Just meaningless noise to placate the Sheeple.  Like singing to a cattle drive herd at night. Try to keep them from stampeding.

Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election

Eric Shawn is reporting that Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution.

The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation's leaders.

Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.

"I have a responsibility to uphold election law, and under both federal and state law you must be a citizen to vote," said Husted, a Republican who has aggressively tried to investigate voter fraud cases in his state.

Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls.

Barack Obama beat Mitt Romney in Ohio by just 2 percentage points in November 2012.

As part of Ohio's efforts to clean up the voting rolls, election officials discovered that more than 257,000 dead people were still listed as active voters. Their names and status, Husted said, have since been removed.

In addition, election authorities note they have drastically reduced the number of duplicate registrations, from 340,000 in 2011 to just four this past November -- and that more than 370,000 Ohio voters who have moved have been contacted to update their voting information.

"Now that we have the ability to cross-check citizenship information with Ohio's voter rolls, I will continue to be vigilant and to push the General Assembly for additional tools to modernize our elections systems, making it easy to vote and hard to cheat," Husted said.

Voting advocates have long complained that some of the country's voter fraud investigations amount to voter suppression, aimed at preventing minorities and others from voting. But supporters say the efforts only are aimed at preventing voter fraud and maintaining the integrity of the electoral process.

The new investigation comes after election officials secured several voter fraud convictions stemming from last year's election in Ohio, including that of one poll worker who was accused of voting six times in the November presidential election.

Melowese Richardson, 58, is serving five years in prison after being convicted of four counts of voter fraud. Prosecutors said she repeatedly had voted in the name of her sister, who has been in a coma since 2003, and that the illegal votes Richardson cast were counted in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. She also was accused of illegally voting in November's election in the names of other people, including her granddaughter India Richardson, who told Fox News that "it wasn't a big deal."

A Cincinnati nun also pleaded guilty to illegal voting as part of the ongoing voter fraud investigation.

The new cases of non-citizen voting are being referred to local prosecutors

Voter fraud -- we've got proof it's easy 

John Fund is reporting that liberals who oppose efforts to prevent voter fraud claim that there is no fraud -- or at least not any that involves voting in person at the polls.

But New York City's watchdog Department of Investigations (DoI) has just provided the latest evidence of how easy it is to commit voter fraud that is almost undetectable. DoI undercover agents showed up at 63 polling places last fall and pretended to be voters who should have been turned away by election officials; the agents assumed the names of individuals who had died or moved out of town, or who were sitting in jail. In 61 instances, or 97 percent of the time, the testers were allowed to vote. Those who did vote cast only a write-in vote for a "John Test" so as to not affect the outcome of any contest. DoI published its findings two weeks ago in a searing 70-page report accusing the city's Board of Elections (BoE) of incompetence, waste, nepotism, and lax procedures.

The Board of Elections, which has a $750 million annual budget and a work force of 350 people, reacted in classic bureaucratic fashion, which prompted one city paper to deride it as "a 21st-century survivor of Boss Tweed–style politics." The Board approved a resolution referring the DoI's investigators for prosecution. It also asked the state's attorney general to determine whether DoI had violated the civil rights of voters who had moved or are felons, and it sent a letter of complaint to Mayor Bill de Blasio. Normally, I wouldn't think de Blasio would give the BoE the time of day, but New York's new mayor has long been a close ally of former leaders of ACORN, the now-disgraced "community organizing" group that saw its employees convicted of voter-registration fraud all over the country during and after the 2008 election.

Greg Soumas, president of New York's BOE, offered a justification for calling in the prosecutors: "If something was done in an untoward fashion, it was only done by DoI. We [are] unaware of any color of authority on the part of [DoI] to vote in the identity of any person other than themselves -- and our reading of the election law is that such an act constitutes a felony." The Board is bipartisan, and all but two of its members voted with Soumas. The sole exceptions were Democrat Jose Araujo, who abstained because the DoI report implicated him in hiring his wife and sister-and-law for Board jobs, and Republican Simon Shamoun.

Good-government groups are gobsmacked at Soumas's refusal to smell the stench of corruption in his patronage-riddled empire. "They should focus not on assigning blame to others, but on taking responsibility for solving the problems themselves," Dick Dadey of the watchdog group Citizens Union told the Daily News. "It's a case of the Board of Elections passing the buck." DoI officials respond that the use of undercover agents is routine in anti-corruption probes and that people should carefully read the 70-page report they've filed before criticizing it. They are surprised how little media attention their report has received.

You'd think more media outlets would have been interested, because the sloppiness revealed in the DoI report is mind-boggling. Young undercover agents were able to vote using the names of people three times their age, people who in fact were dead. In one example, a 24-year female agent gave the name of  someone who had died in 2012 at age 87; the workers at the Manhattan polling site gave her a ballot, no questions asked. Even the two cases where poll workers turned away an investigator raise eyebrows. In the first case, a poll worker on Staten Island walked outside with the undercover investigator who had just been refused a ballot; the "voter" was advised to go to the polling place near where he used to live and "play dumb" in order to vote. In the second case, the investigator was stopped from voting only because the felon whose name he was using was the son of the election official at the polling place.

Shooting the messenger has been a typical reaction in other states when people have demonstrated just how easy it is to commit voter fraud. Guerrilla videographer James O'Keefe had three of his assistants visit precincts during New Hampshire's January 2012 presidential primary. They asked poll workers whether their books listed the names of several voters, all deceased individuals still listed on voter-registration rolls. Poll workers handed out ten ballots, never once asking for a photo ID. O'Keefe's team immediately gave back the ballots, unmarked, to precinct workers. Debbie Lane, a ballot inspector at one of the Manchester polling sites, later said: "I wasn't sure what I was allowed to do. . . . I can't tell someone not to vote, I suppose." The only precinct in which O'Keefe or his crew did not obtain a ballot was one in which the local precinct officer had personally known the dead "voter."

New Hampshire's Democratic governor, John Lynch, sputtered when asked about O'Keefe's video, and he condemned the effort to test the election system even though no actual votes were cast. "They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, if in fact they're found guilty of some criminal act," he roared. But cooler heads eventually prevailed, and the GOP state legislature later approved a voter-ID bill, with enough votes to override the governor's veto. Despite an exhaustive and intrusive investigation, no charges were ever filed against any of O'Keefe's associates.

Later in 2012, in Washington, D.C., one of O'Keefe's assistants was able to obtain Attorney General Eric Holder's ballot even though Holder is 62 years old and bears no resemblance to the 22-year-old white man who obtained it merely by asking if Eric Holder was on the rolls. But the Department of Justice, which is currently suing Texas to block that state's photo-ID law, dismissed the Holder ballot incident as "manufactured." The irony was lost on the DoJ that Holder, a staunch opponent of voter-ID laws, could have himself been disenfranchised by a white man because Washington, D.C., has no voter-ID law. Polls consistently show that more than 70 percent of Americans -- including clear majorities of African Americans and Hispanics -- support such laws.

Liberals who oppose ballot-security measures claim that there are few prosecutions for voter fraud, which they take to mean that fraud doesn't happen. But as the New York DoI report demonstrates, it is comically easy, given the sloppy-voter registration records often kept in America, to commit voter fraud in person. (A 2012 study by the Pew Research Center found that nationwide, at least 1.8 million deceased voters are still registered to vote.) And unless someone confesses, in-person voter fraud is very difficult to detect -- or stop. New York's Gothamist news service reported last September that four poll workers in Brooklyn reported they believed people were trying to vote in the name of other registered voters. Police officers observed the problems but did nothing because voter fraud isn't under the police department's purview.

What the DoI investigators were able to do was eerily similar to actual fraud that has occurred in New York before. In 1984, Brooklyn's Democratic district attorney, Elizabeth Holtzman, released a state grand-jury report on a successful 14-year conspiracy that cast thousands of fraudulent votes in local, state, and congressional elections. Just like the DoI undercover operatives, the conspirators cast votes at precincts in the names of dead, moved, and bogus voters. The grand jury recommended voter ID, a basic election-integrity measure that New York has steadfastly refused to implement.

In states where non-photo ID is required, it's also all too easy to manufacture records that allow people to vote. In 2012, the son of Congressman Jim Moran, the Democrat who represents Virginia's Washington suburbs, had to resign as field director for his father's campaign after it became clear that he had encouraged voter fraud. Patrick Moran was caught advising an O'Keefe videographer on how to commit in-person voter fraud. The scheme involved using a personal computer to forge utility bills that would satisfy Virginia's voter-ID law and then relying on the assistance of Democratic lawyers stationed at the polls to make sure the fraudulent votes were counted. Last year, Virginia tightened its voter-ID law and ruled that showing a utility bill was no longer sufficient to obtain a ballot.

Given that someone who is dead, is in jail, or has moved isn't likely to complain if someone votes in his name, how do we know that voter fraud at the polls isn't a problem? An ounce of prevention -- in the form of voter ID and better training of poll workers -- should be among the minimum precautions taken to prevent an electoral miscarriage or meltdown in a close race.

After all, even a small number of votes can have sweeping consequences. Al Franken's 312-vote victory in 2008 over Minnesota senator Norm Coleman gave Democrats a filibuster-proof Senate majority of 60 votes, which allowed them to pass ObamaCare. Months after the ObamaCare vote, a conservative group called Minnesota Majority finished comparing criminal records with voting rolls and identified 1,099 felons -- all ineligible to vote -- who had voted in the Franken–Coleman race. Fox News random interviews with ten of those felons found that nine had voted for Franken, backing up national academic studies that show felons tend to vote strongly for Democrats.

Minnesota Majority took its findings to prosecutors across the state, but very few showed any interest in pursuing the issue. Some did, though, and 177 people have been convicted as of mid 2012 -- not just "accused" but actually convicted -- of voting fraudulently in the Senate race. Probably the only reason the number of convictions isn't higher is that the standard for convicting someone of voter fraud in Minnesota is that the person must have been both ineligible and must have "knowingly" voted unlawfully. Anyone accused of fraud is apt to get off by claiming he didn't know he'd done anything wrong.

Given that we now know for certain how easy it is to commit undetectable voter fraud and how serious the consequences can be, it's truly bizarre to have officials at the New York City Board of Elections and elsewhere savage those who shine a light on the fact that their modus operandi invites fraud. One might even think that they're covering up their incompetence or that they don't want to pay attention to what crimes could be occurring behind the curtains at their polling places. Or both.

I wonder how the Dems are going to keep a straight face when we insist that Voter ID has to be gotten and having to show it at the polls is NOT racist....  since Obama himself has put into the OCare rules that everyone has to have a PHOTO ID to take part in the OCare scam......??

Covered California distributing pre-marked voter registration cards

Preston Phillips is reporting that a local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's ObamaCare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.

PreMarkedBallot.jpg

The couple -- who did not want their identity revealed -- received the letter and voter registration card from their health insurance provider Covered California, the state-run agency that implements President Obama's Affordable Care Act.

They have lived in La Mesa for years and they have always been registered to vote Republican. Now, they are perplexed as to how the voter registration card pre-marked Democrat ended up in their mailbox.

"I'm an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife," said the man who received the mailer.

Covered California began mailing out voter signup cards to nearly 4 million enrollees last week after being threatened with a lawsuit by voting rights groups. But that does not explain the pre-filled out voter registration card.

"It's a waste of money because there's an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don't need to. I can see that, but I can't see putting x on the form before it's given to me in a little bitty box that nobody's really going to notice," said the recipient of the mailer.

10News shared what was sent with Covered California.

Spokeswoman Anne Gonzales stated, "We are mailing voter registration material. However, the application forms come directly from the Secretary of State's office, with no fields pre-marked. The individual should contact the Secretary of State, which takes these violations of election law extremely seriously, and they will investigate, using the unique serial number."

The couple says they did reach out to the Secretary of State’s office and could not get a hold of anyone. They also say they reached out to the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which told them to contact Covered California.

Ha, ha hah!  The Democrat Secretary of State "takes these violations of election law extremely seriously."

And I have bridge to sell you.

Microsoft founder invests $40m in foreign vote-count firm

Aaron Klein is reporting that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, a supporter of Barack Obama, is investing $40 million in Scytl, the Spain-based firm that in January 2012 acquired 100 percent of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.

Allen made the investment via his Vulcan Capital, the investment management firm that oversees his multi-billion dollar portfolio.

Abhishek Agrawal, Vulcan Capital’s managing director, told the Wall Street Journal’s blog he expects countries to eventually become comfortable with digital-only elections.

“This is a very powerful global trend,” Agrawal added. “There is a pathway toward gradual modernization.”

Allen has donated to both Democrats and Republicans, including to the campaigns of Democratic Reps. Norm Dicks and Dennis Heck, both from Washington state, where Allen owns the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks National Football League team.

One of Allen’s philanthropic organizations, the Allen Institute for Brain Science, earmarked a $60-million annual donation to support Obama’s initiative to map the activity of every neuron in the human brain.

In April 2013, Obama announced his plan, the BRAIN Initiative, or the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies Initiative.

Another of Allen’s charitable groups, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, donated a total of $250,000 to the immigration-reform advocacy group Centro de la Raza.

The same foundation provided $450,000 to the Urban Institute.

The supposedly “nonpartisan” Urban Institute’s employees have a record of donating nearly 100 percent of their political contributions to Democrats. Officially, the Urban Institute advocates for socialized medicine, carbon taxes and amnesty for illegal aliens.

UI’s president, Sarah Rosen Wartell, is the co-founder of the Center for American Progress, widely considered ground zero for the development of many of the Obama administration’s progressive policies. CAP’s other founder, John Podesta, currently serves as White House counselor.

Scytl, meanwhile, is advancing worldwide. WND reported yesterday an entire municipality in Canada will utilize online-only voting in the next election, with all balloting to be run via Scytl.

The U.S. may not be far from Internet voting. In January, President Obama’s special commission on election reform recommended future electronic voting, even suggesting tablet computers, such as iPads, be used to cast votes, as WND exclusively reported.

The concept of electronic voting is already being tested.

WND reported in 2012 that Scytl announced the successful implementation of technology that allows ballots to be cast using Google and Apple smartphones and tablet computers.
