Eighth Democrat Named in New York Vote Fraud Probe
-By Warner Todd Huston
Many anti-voter reform advocates claim that there is no such thing as voter fraud in the United States. That might be news in Rensselaer County, New York where an eighth local Democrat has been brought up on charges in connection with a 2009 attempt by Democrats to forge absentee ballots for the Working Families Party.
On January 11, Troy Democrat City Councilman Gary Galuski, 51, was indicted on four counts of first-degree falsifying business records, pleaded not guilty and was released on his own recognizance.
Times Union reporter Kenneth Crowe II, reports that Special Prosecutor Trey Smith said, “the charges against Galuski arise from leaving parts of the absentee ballot application form blank. The applications were for four voters, one of whom have since died.”
Galuski presently works for the county Board of Elections as a Democratic appointee. He did not work for the board during the 2009 primary.
Nine Democrats were identified as persons of interest in the investigation. In addition to the four who were indicted, four others have entered guilty pleas, one received immunity for testifying before the grand jury and one agreed to cooperate with the grand jury.
Meanwhile, jury selection is being conducted in the first trial of this investigation. The two Democrats, Anthony Renna, indicted on charges of second-degree forgery, and Anthony DeFiglio, on first-degree falsifying business records, are the first two Democrats brought to trial for this “massive” voter fraud incident.
The Working Families Party is quite a scam in and of itself, this voter fraud investigation aside. It is literally an arm of the New York branch of the disgraced community activist group ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now).
The “party” is not really an independent political party, but merely an arm of the New York Democrat Party and when it initially started it was even run right out of ACORN’s New York offices.
The Working Families Party has also been involved in vote fraud in the past.
One former worker charged in 2010 that he saw WFP workers “putting down fake names” on voter registration documents and petitions.
Our government was built upon the belief that election results represent the true will of the people; our election processes were always intended to be supported by citizen volunteers. If you are one of the millions of Americans outraged by the corruption of our government, help stop the corruption where it starts – at the polls. Get involved, right here, right now. Let’s work together to true the vote in every election across our nation!
