This one is a tad bit confusing, to be honest. As we are all aware, voter fraud is a problem, as well as voter registration fraud. We also know that AG Holder, when he is not sending guns down Mexico way, has promised to not enforce the parts of Motor Voter that demands that deceased, or otherwise illegal voters are removed from the rolls. What the law does permit is for outside groups to monitor these rolls. However, it seems that some union goons have taken issue with that cause. J. Christian Adams, at PJ Media, has the details…
The Communist (I do not use that term recklessly) publication People’s World has an article full of threats and libel from union thugs and Soros-funded voter fraud deniers directed at law abiding Americans: “Labor raising an ‘army of 400,000? for the 2012 elections.”
Groups like True the Vote and Judicial Watch are working to cleanse the voter rolls of ineligible and dead voters, using federal laws Eric Holder’s Justice Department won’t enforce.
Here is Larry Cohen, president of the Communications Workers of America, with an outright fairy tale.
“We know their game,” he said, they even have tried to criminalize voter registration — something that was always considered an act of good citizenship. We will not be deterred. If necessary we will be arrested, if that’s what it takes, to register voters — if that’s what it takes to protect democracy.”
Criminalize voter registration? Where? How? Note carefully the threat of lawlessness. Cohen can’t help it. A union scorpion will remain a union scorpion. Another union scorpion, Arlene Holt-Baker of the AFL-CIO adds her threats:
The tea party groups, like the so called “Election Integrity” group in Maryland match names on the voter rolls to all kinds of other databases, including property tax information, arrest records or anything else they can find. Similar groups are at work in at least 30 states.
“We will work with our allies and coalition partners to stop this form of vote suppression,” said Holt Baker.
OK then, is Ms. Holt-Baker threatening illegal activities in order to insure that the dead vote…early and often? Or, since there aren’t that many voter ID laws yet, are they guaranteeing the right for fake voters, non-citizens, or felons to vote…early and often? I mean, if the Tea Party groups are helping to purge the rolls of dead people, and otherwise ineligible voters, and the unions want to stop it? Also, “working with our allies to stop” the dead from voting, pretty much means harassment, intimidation, or even violence.
Gateway Pundit has the coverage of both “busts” of the SEIU front group. Here is the first.
Yesterday, the Yuma Sun reported that two organizations Mi Familia Vota and One Vote Arizona submitted more than 3,000 voter registrations in Yuma County right before the deadline for registering voters. The groups submitted over 20,000 registrations statewide.
What the Yuma Sun did not tell you is that over 65% of these last minute registrations were invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, a wrong/invalid address, or a false signature.
And, that’s not the only area in which they were caught…
The same SEIU offshoot group that is accused of turning in thousands of bogus voter registrations in Arizona has come under fire in Colorado.
Mi Familia Vota is accused of turning in 6,000 bogus voter registrations in Colorado.
So, same group, same process, different city.
Obviously the unions are different, but the process seems to be similar. Mr. Cohen and Ms. Holt-Baker both seem to be willing to get their rank and file arrested to keep the dead (and other ineligible persons) voting. And, all the while, they’ll claim to be the victims.
