How Much Fraud In Elections Is Acceptable?

by lewwaters

The GOP used voter intimidation and outright fraud to hand Florida to George W. Bush in 2000, and if we don’t stop them, they’ll do it again.” – New Jersey Democrat Senator Jon Corzine

Twelve years later and we still hear that cry coming from the Democrat camp, how Republicans “stole the 2000 election.” Never mind it is a lie that was quickly put to rest by a consortium of news media including the New York Times who wrote Study of Disputed Florida Ballots Finds Justices Did Not Cast the Deciding Vote.

I’ve lost count of how many times we have heard the cry “stolen election” coming from the Democrats, even once hearing regarding the controversial results in Washington State’s 2004 gubernatorial race, “consider that payback for 2000” from a local Democrat.

After President Bush won again in the 2004 election, the cries came to include Diebold Voting Machines “delivered Ohio to President Bush,” and “Ohio is the Florida of 2004.”

Of course, when Democrats made sweeping wins in 2006, Diebold was vindicated.

Washington Citizens’ Group Files Petition for Release of Disqualified Juror Information

Group Seeks to Remove Ineligible Voters from Rolls

A citizens’ watchdog group, Respect Washington today filed a petition Tuesday in King County Superior Court seeking release of “non-juror information” from King County and the other 38 Washington counties. Non-juror information pertains to individuals who were deemed unqualified for serving on juries because of citizenship status or other reasons. Respect Washington is seeking access to this public information in order to verify that ineligible individuals are not registered to vote in Washington. Respect Washington was assisted by the Immigration Reform Law Institute.

Cross-referencing non-juror information in Douglas and Pacific Counties in 2006 and 2007 revealed that many of the individuals who were deemed ineligible for service as jurors were registered voters. In Douglas County, 42 percent of those rejected for jury service were on the voter rolls, and 56 percent of those ruled ineligible for jury duty in Pacific County were registered to vote. Each of the five criteria used to disqualify individuals from jury service would also make them ineligible to vote.

Washington Blogger Wins $225,000 Lawsuit Against King County

by lewwaters

Stefan Sharkansky, of SoundPolitics has announced that King County has agreed to pay him $225,000 in a settlement over a lawsuit Sharansky filed over documents relatingto the contentious 2004 Governors Race/fiasco.

Sharansky filed for documents in December 2004 that were not supplied for some 3 years and that showed, once provided, that elections officials in King County counted hundreds of ineligible ballots that may have given the election to Dino Rossi instead of to Christine Gregoire. Rossi was the winner in the first two recounts.

As many recall, the 2004 Governors Race was one of the closest in history and the fiasco of King County mysteriously discovering more “lost ballots” as recounts continued with Gregoire losing made it even more contentious, leading upwards of 70% of Washingtonians, from both parties, desiring a revote. That was denied by the Democrat party and Gregoire ended up being our governor.

From the beginning, Sharansky was blogging and doing his own investigating into this contentious election and legally obtaining election results. King County, the source of Gregoire’s contentious win, drug their heels as much as they could. Sharansky did not back down and continued to pursue documented proof and truth about the election, resulting in this lawsuit.

Congratulations to Conservative Blogger Stefan Sharkansky for prevailing in his search for truth and fairness in our state.

You First, King County

by lewwaters

We are down to the wire now. Most have turned in their ballots, or will visit the polls later today in the few places in Washington that haven’t adopted the Mail-In Ballots. Campaigns have done what they can and most have selected whom they will vote for.

I doubt there will be many races closely watched and scrutinized as will be the Presidential Race and of course, our Governor’s race. We all recall the fiasco of 2004 and the ill feelings most from both parties had over how Christine Gregoire became the Governor over Dino Rossi, after three recounts.

Supposedly, corrections were made to our election system to prevent a recurrence. Thousands of unlawful voters were removed from the polls, we were told. Secretary of State, Sam Reed tells us he has improved the system greatly, but as we can see, there are still serious shortcomings.

On a recent Victoria Taft program, Sam Reed washer guest. I emailed her to ask Sam if all Counties could withhold reporting their ballot counts until after King County reported theirs, due to the appearance in 2004 of mass voter fraud coming out of the County, which “found” many “lost or misplaced” ballots that gave the extremely narrow win margin to Gregoire.

Caught off guard, Reed hemmed and hawed a bit before saying he could understand why voters in the rest of the state may feel leery, but that King County was reliable and if other Counties chose to wait, that was their prerogative.

Thinking maybe we could have a trustworthy election this time, imagine my surprise when I saw him quoted in the Columbian saying, “voters shouldn’t expect to know definitive results on Election Night because much of the state’s vote is still outstanding, and because King County’s results will come in slower than the rest of the state,” adding, “Unless the outcome of the race is very lopsided, it could change as more ballots come in.”

That sounds too much to me like a forewarning of a likely repeat of the 2004 fiasco, unless, like he said, the vote is extremely lopsided.

I fully realize King County is a large heavily populated county, but counting upwards of 3,000 more ballots than you have registered voters carries a distinct appearance of fraud.

It should be remembered that in the recounts, it was king County that “discovered” so many missing ballots and gave Gregoire the win in the third recount, after Rossi won the first two and the general election.

It should also be remembered that King County is predominantly Liberal Democrats who have no compunction winning anyway they can, while crying we are the fraudulent ones.

Frankly, and I know I am not alone, I do not trust King County to deliver honest vote counts, especially if another squeaker of an election happens. Not after 2004 and not after hearing Sam Reed’s comments.

The only way I can think of the keep this election honest, whoever may win, is for other counties to withhold reporting their counts and give King County the honor of reporting first, this time. No chance to see how many votes are needed to be found to ensure a Democrat wins.

After you King County, you first! We’re watching this time.
