Another voter ID veto

In case you missed it, New Hampshire’s guv, John Lynch, followed Governor Perdue’s lead yesterday by vetoing a mandatory photo ID for voting bill.

Of course, the fact that Republicans have been pushing these bills all over the country is pure coincidence and is only in response to “massive” voter fraud. Conservatives would never want to suppress voter turnout amongst poor, elderly, disabled and minority populations, for heaven’s sake.

    There is fraud at the voting polls. That is a fact and many have made public statement about the issue.

    Due to contractual non-performance and security design issues, Leon County (Florida) supervisor of elections Ion Sancho has announced that he will never again use Diebold voting machines in an election.

    According to Beverly Harris, author of Black Box Voting: Ballot Tampering in the 21st Century, a manipulation technique found in Diebold Elections Systems’ AccuVote central vote tabulator is able to read totals from an untraceable bogus vote set within its software.

    Compare any evidence of actual voter fraud by citizens to that of high tech voting machines programed to commit fraud by thousands of votes and you’ve got rampant voting fraud not by the people but by business wanting to get their man or woman in office to have their way with the American people.

    Voter fraud indeed! Point to the hard working American who believes in one-person-one-vote. But people got to blame somebody because things don’t go your way or you want to put into place a system of controlling who and who does not vote. If there is evidence of voter fraud the bring it forward.

    Voter fraud is more like ninjas. I must be stalked by them because they are very good at hiding. That’s why the State Board of Elections found that only 5 votes per million cast in NC from 2004 to 2010 involved fraud that a Voter ID would have stopped.

    This is a memo from the state board of elections regarding a voter fraud inquiry https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B-M7SBm8iPs8ZDYyMDQ0N2QtM2RiYi00ZjIwLWFiMjgtZGZmNTVjZGY0M2Iz&hl=en_US

    Accusations and innuendos of rampant voting fraud in NC does not a valid case make.

    Ninjas and domestic violence at the core of an arguement to explain why voting fraud cannot be proven to exist.
