Franken Voter Fraud Charge is Typical

Minnesota Majority, a conservative watchdog group, is contending that Minnesota Democrat US senator Al Franken, who won a hotly disputed race in 2008 that was not decided until six months later, won the close election with the illegal votes of convicted felons who put him over the top.


MM found that 341 convicted felons had voted in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area alone, a heavily Democrat district, while the final tally showed that Franken beat his Republican opponent Norm Coleman by only 312 votes.


Criminals like organized crime thugs, union thugs, corrupt politicians and big populations of black lawbreakers vote overwhelmingly Democrat, so naturally Democrats are the party that always is seeking to make it easier for convicted felons to rejoin the voter rolls.


MM says that its efforts to get state and federal officials to look into the Franken matter have been stonewalled.


“We aren’t trying to change the result of the last election. That legally can’t be done,” said Minnesota Majority’s executive director Dan McGrath. “We are just trying to make sure the integrity of the next election isn’t compromised.” 


“What we did this time is irrefutable. We took the voting lists and matched them with conviction lists and then went back to the records and found the roster lists, where voters sign in before walking to the voting booth, and matched them by hand. 


“The only way we can be wrong is if someone with the same first, middle and last names, same year of birth as the felon, and living in the same community, has voted. And that isn’t very likely.” 


McGrath says the report shows that more action still is needed to guarantee clean elections.


“Prosecutors have to act more swiftly in prosecuting cases from the 2008 election to deter fraud in the future,” he said, “and the state has to make sure that existing system, that flags convicted felons so voting officials can challenge them at the ballot, is effective. In 90 percent of the cases we looked at, the felons weren’t flagged.” 


Have you ever noticed how virtually all the voter fraud in America is virtually always concentrated in districts where Democrats rule, particularly cities? Do you know the story of the most famous crooked American election of all, where backers of John F. Kennedy, primarily his wealthy father, were known to have stolen the presidential election of 1960 through corruption and bribery in Chicago?


Yet JFK’s Republican opponent Richard Nixon did not go crying about the loss for years, as the Democrats and Al Gore did after legitimately losing the 2000 presidential election. Nixon took it like a man, said he would return, and won the presidency in 1968.


Or how about these other recent cases:


*In South Dakota in 2002, Democrat Tim Johnson won his US senate seat over Republican John Thune by only 524 votes after there was strong evidence of voter fraud on the state’s Indian reservations, which are overwhelmingly Democrat strongholds. Thune did not complain. He came back and won the seat of the state’s other Democrat US senator, Tom Daschle, in 2004.


*In Washington state, in 2004, Republican Dino Rossi won the gubernatorial election on the first vote count, won the recount, then lost the race to Democrat Christine Gregoire on the second recount which included Democrat votes magically found in the heavily Democrat Seattle area. In the 2008 Minnesota election, Fox News reported that Republican Coleman’s campaign was “skeptical about [the ballots’] sudden appearance” in Democrat-heavy Ramsey County, referring to a group of ballots that suddenly turned up when the election looked close in what seemed like a classic Democrat fraud.


*Or how about the indictment of Republican US senator Ted Stevens of Alaska by a grand jury in ultra-liberal Washington, DC just before the 2008 election on campaign finance charges. Then right after the election, which Stevens lost in a close contest, the charges were dropped.


*Yet Democrats to this day still are caterwauling about George Bush’s victory in the 2000 presidential election by 537 votes in Florida. Yet those votes were counted over and over and over in the most transparent election recount ever.


Now look at the statement from Minnesota Majority: “We aren’t trying to change the result of the last election. That legally can’t be done. We are just trying to make sure the integrity of the next election isn’t compromised.” 


Why not try to change the result? Why don’t Republicans and conservatives start playing hardball for once? After all, Democrats play hardball every day and people like Richard Nixon and John Thune are always too gracious.


It is time to put the gloves on. It is time to start seeking to challenge these Democrat election frauds. We know that for every one we know about, that there are many that are never discovered. And Democrats are famous for using every dirty trick in the book like stealing opponents’ campaign signs, getting corrupt contributions, using payoffs to voters on election day etc.


By the way, did you ever notice who always promotes ‘clean elections’ laws?


Yes, it is always liberals and Democrats.


Yet Democrats themselves are the ones corrupting the electoral system in the first place. Perhaps they could simply abide by the laws already in force.
