“Dem” Election Voter Fraud Schemes in California Flourish Among Homeless

Charges Filed In Election Fraud Scheme Involving Homeless In Los Angeles

According to a story published Tuesday by the LA Times, nine people have been charged with election fraud. The scheme involved paying homeless people living in LA’s skid row to forge signatures for ballot initiatives:

SEE ALSO: More fallout from that NY Times story about Facebook

Using cash and cigarettes as lures, the defendants approached homeless people on skid row and asked them to forge signatures on state ballot measure petitions and voter registration forms, the district attorney’s office said. The defendants — some of whom were scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday — face several criminal charges, including circulating a petition with fake names, voter fraud and registering a fictitious person.

The charges, which were filed three weeks ago but made public Tuesday, followed a Los Angeles Police Department crackdown on suspected election fraud on skid row earlier in the year.

In California, we frequently have ballot initiatives which are financial or political questions put to a direct vote during an election. This year was no exception with a number of bond questions, an attempt to repeal the gas tax, a question on rent control, and a possible change to daylight savings time among others. But each of these measures has to qualify to be on the ballot by following specific steps. The step which makes or breaks most of these initiatives is raising tens of thousands of signatures which are then submitted to the California Secretary of State for confirmation. And that’s where the temptation to cheat creeps in.

RECOMMENDED

Some of the arrests made in this case came three weeks ago, before the election. KABC in Los Angeles reported at the time:

Los Angeles Police Department officer Deon Joseph knows his way around Skid Row. It’s been his beat for the last 20 years…

“This is where they do most of the voter registration fraud,” he said, pointing to the sidewalk in front of the Midnight Mission. “It’s been going on for years.”

Joseph says it’s pretty common for people hired by lobbyists to set up tables outside the missions and illegally pay people for fake signatures used for various ballot measures from all across California.

“They say, ‘Hey, you wanna make a quick buck?” Joseph explained. “They can get a quarter, a dollar, a cigarette and sometimes food. But in the last few cases it’s been money.”

In theory, California authorities would catch these fakes. LA County’s election chief tells the LA Times that his staff compares every signature to the ones on voter registration forms. But using fraud to get things on the ballot is still a crime and charging the people involved in this case with felonies is an attempt to send a message that this won’t be tolerated anymore. The nine people charged in this scheme face up to four years, and in a couple cases, up to six years in prison if they are convicted.

Gopher State’s District One May Go GOP!

The Minnesota One race

by Seth Segal at American Thinker: 

 

Jim Hagedorn is an important candidate in a tight race.  Minnesota One is a swing district – though the majority of the district once voted for Obama, it’s neither solidly Republican nor Democrat.

This is a vital district in the upcoming midterms.  According to political science professor David Schultz, “these are seats that if we go back a decade or so have actually proven flippable.”

This past election, the pendulum swung in President Trump’s favor.  The president won a 15-point margin of victory in this district.  Now this House race may impact whether or not the GOP holds onto a majority.

According to an ABC poll, Jim Hagedorn has a two-in-three chance of winning.  His Democratic opponent, Dan Feehan, on the other hand, has only a one-in-three chance of winning.

Clearly, this district has the potential to elect someone who has the backing of the president.  Unlike his opponent, Hagedorn has been a strong supporter of President Trump.

Recently, the president visited the district.  Hagedorn then tweeted, “I am running for Congress to help President Trump pull the weeds of government.”  Jim Hagedorn is indeed a candidate intent on draining the swamp.

While much of Minnesota is liberal, this district shows that it is far from a monolith.  In fact, Minnesota now has a chance to elect a candidate who will stand with the president and make and keep America great.

Goopherland Votes on Primary Day

PRIMARY DAY IN MINNESOTA

by Scott Johnson  at  PowerLine:

Today is primary day in Minnesota and a few other states. Primary day in Minnesota raises issues of politics and party — the routinization of party politics — elections, history, tradition, loyalty, gab and more, putting me in mind of James Joyce’s story “Ivy Day in the Committee Room.” Readers may recall the that the memory of Parnell looms large in the story. “Parnell is dead,” says Mr. Henchy. After some prodding, Mr. Hynes rises in response to recite his elegy for Parnell. In the Minnesota DFL, someone might observe today, “Humphrey is dead,” but no one will rise to recite an elegy on his behalf.

The crosscurrents roiling the national Democratic Party are all on display in the DFL primary today. By far the most interesting races are taking place on the DFL side. Here are a few brief notes on the DFL races:

Governor: Erin Murphy is the endorsed DFL candidate. Murphy is a cookie cutter Twin Cities leftist. Minnesota is not yet entirely there. Murphy is challenged by two strong candidates, incumbent Attorney General Lori Swanson and First District Rep. Tim Walz. Murphy defeated Walz for the party endorsement after seven rounds of balloting at the state party convention. The endorsement of Murphy prompted Swanson to jump in. Both Walz and Swanson have abandoned secure positions (in Walz’s case, relatively secure) to seek gubernatorial office and are left-liberals holding themselves out as mainstream candidates. I think Walz will prevail. The late-breaking story of Swanson’s misuse of her office can’t have helped her. I will be surprised if Murphy comes in any better than third. If so, this will be a surprisingly weak showing for the endorsed DFL candidate.

Lieutenant Governor: Each candidate runs on a ticket and at the invitation of a gubernatorial candidate. Murphy selected gay millennial “intersectional organizer” Erin Maye Quade. We’re still scratching our heads trying to figure this one out. Maye Quade is a nonentity best known, if known at all, for holding a 24-hour sit-in at the State Capitol in April to demand gun control. State representative Peggy Flanagan is running with Walz. Retiring septuagenarian Eighth District Rep. Rick Nolan is running with Swanson. I think Nolan has proven a negative for Swanson.

Attorney General: Gay millennial Matt Pelikan challenged incumbent Attorney General Lori Swanson for the nomination at the state convention. When Swanson didn’t win the party’s endorsement on the first ballot — she would have won it on the second — she withdrew to run for govenor. Pelikan is a Twin Cities attorney of no substance. Incumbent Fifth District Rep. Keith Ellison declared his intent to move on from Congress and run against Pelikan as the DFL candidate for the office the day before the filing deadline in June. In a sane world that no longer exists in Minnesota politics, former Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman (endorsed by the Star Tribune) and former Ramsey County Attorney Tom Foley might be serious contenders in the primary. Despite the late breaking domestic abuse issues that are dogging Ellison, Ellison’s urban base should be enough for him to prevail here and give the Republican candidate (Doug Wardlow) the chance to win the office for the first time since, ahem, 1966.

Senate: We have both Senate seats on the ballot this year. Amy Klobuchar is the popular incumbent. She has a genius for avoiding controversial issues, an unerring instinct for finding meaningless issues to generate positive press, and an underserved reputation as a nice person. Just ask one of her many ex-staffers. But she has no intraparty opposition. Appointed incumbent Tina Smith has drawn a challenge from recent Republican and not quite-Democrat University of Minnesota Law Professor Richard Painter. We have followed Painter closely. He is a man without a party; his constituency is the audience served by the perpetual Trump hatefest on CNN and MSNBC. In the primary contest Painter has provided little beyond comic relief. Smith, it should be added, is a vacuous Twin Cities leftist who served as Mark Dayton’s lieutenant governor. I think Smith will survive Painter’s comic challenge to face the more formidable Karin Housley on the ballot in November.

Fifth District: Incumbent Rep. Keith Ellison seems to have timed his decision to move on to serve the interest of state representative Ilhan Omar to succeed him. Omar secured the party endorsement at the special DFL endorsement convention on June 17. We have closely covered this race. Former Minnesota Speaker of the House Margaret Anderson Kelliher is Omar’s most formidable challenger in the primary today. Kelliher mopped the floor with Omar at the candidates’ forum at Temple Beth El last week. I covered the forum on Power Line and even spoke briefly with Omar on her way out of the sanctuary. My strong impression is that Omar knew that Kelliher had drubbed her but that she didn’t care; she knows she’s going to win.

Glenn’s comment:   I arrived at my voting district’s ballot box stationed in a Jewish synagogue about ten minutes after polls opened.   I had business to do and people to see…..There were eight poll protectors conducting business….but I was the only voter in the ten minutes I fulfilled the requirements to  select my favorite candidates.

I vote Donald Trump….but he wasn’t listed for the ballot box.   I used to campaign for Dems……Governor Mondale, local folks like Alpha Smaby…..until Ronald Reagan.  These were Democrats their early  Days…..civilized Americans.   But Mondale became super sour  when he became super ugly in his 21st century battle to return to Congress when he lost to a Jewish, not Roman Catholic ex-mayor of St. Paul….Think of that result in Goopherland!

Today Goopherfolk “hire” the more nobodies for their Washington affairs…no more those Democrats….but for Keith Ellison and other  more modern leftists, feminists, Islamists,  by the younger uneducated, spoiled, socialist riff-raff wanting to be fed and bathed, drunk and fat all  according to their neoisms  being  fed by big government.

Proud to be an American!

….and I am Very Proud of this Young American Conservative Who Voted for Donald J. Trump that November, 2016 for the same reasons I did….May God Bless him for his thinking, explaining, and voting….and May God Bless President Donald J. Trump in his efforts to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!  Aren’t you??    ghr.

GOP’s Balderson Ekes Out Winning Vote Count…..Dems Fake News May Win Fake Recount Minnesota Style!

Troy Balderson leads by 0.9 percentage points, or 1,754 votes, over Danny O’Connor with 100 percent of precincts fully reporting.

CANDIDATE PARTY VOTES PCT.
Troy Balderson Republican 101,574 50.2%
Danny O’Connor Democrat 99,820 49.3
Joe Manchik Green 1,127 0.6

202,521 votes, 100% reporting (591 of 591 precincts)

What to watch: Voters in Ohio’s 12th District are choosing a replacement for Representative Pat Tiberi, a Republican who resigned to work for a business group. The candidates are Troy Balderson, a Republican endorsed last week by Mr. Trump, and Danny O’Connor, a Democrat.

The race is expected to be close, and both national parties are spending heavily. But whoever loses will get a rematch in the regularly scheduled election in just three months.

Lefty Democrat Women Still Cling to Hillary for President….

Hillary!

We are aware that the human female animal is born ditsy.  Some, namely today’s leftwing Democrats and Socialists, remain ditsy for life, preferring feelings over knowledge and reality.    Here, in this hotair article below, is an example of how difficult it is for the human female animal to accept reality over feelings.

It is the human male who is genetically  programmed to  become  a problem solver…..to be curious,  to seek knowledge to know what’s around him,  to seek Truth,  facts,  to defend, protect, to build, to threaten, to deceive for greed, power……and be a killer if needed, driven, or flawed.

The human female animal is born to bear offspring for the survival of the species.   She  is not genetically driven or framed to build, problem solve, invent, be curious.   She has feelings to overwhelm and direct her.  She’s born, programmed to be ditsy, and be  driven by feelings while seeking security above all.  She’ll quit work when it’s time, not when the problem is solved.

The following article about Democrat women’s adoration, feelings, cravings for Hillary…..yes, that very same Crooked, devious Hillary, spoiled brat and mouth of Clinton fame!

Please read the following article about our famous Crooked Hillary and her women of today…..this  feminist moment, apparently, for 2020AD:

Gophers, in Case You Missed Your Supreme Court Decision on Clothing “while voting loony Left in the ballot box”……

Political Apparel at the Polls Now Allowed in Minnesota

 

 

“To the surprise of many, the challenge to the Minnesota law banning political badges, political buttons, or other political insignia at polling places was successful in the U.S. Supreme Court case Minnesota Voter Alliance v. Mansky.

The High Court held that the law violates the First Amendment rights of voters because, as the law is written, it’s just too vague. The 7 to 2 majority opinion explains that the wording of law does not provide individuals, nor those tasked with working the polls, clear definitions as what qualifies as “political.” Reading through the opinion, though, it is clear that SCOTUS does see a path whereby such restrictions on apparel could cut Constitutional muster.

What Isn’t Political?

As commentators noted after the oral argument, the justices seemed to really grapple with the question of what apparel, or insignia, wouldn’t actually qualify as political. From MAGA hats and clothing, to #MeToo pins, to even hats with flashing lights.

The Court’s opinion pulled out the old Webster’s dictionary to quote part of the definition: “a word that can broadly encompass anything ‘of or relating to government, a government, or the conduct of governmental affairs.'” From there, the Court analyzed how Minnesota interpreted the ban, and found a significant issue with the state’s guidance for “issue oriented material designed to influence or impact voting.” In short, the Court found that this category of banned apparel placed too high a burden on individuals and poll judges to suss out what is or isn’t political.

A bigger issue, according to the majority, was that the ban also encompassed apparel that is “promoting a group with recognizable political views,” like the ban on “issue oriented material.” The Court explained that this category also was too vague to be uniformly enforced.

Justice Undefined

The two dissenting justices, Justices Sotomayor and Breyer, explain that while they agree with much of what the majority held, the Court was too hasty. The dissent explains that the question of interpretation of the Minnesota state law should have been certified to the Minnesota Supreme Court before SCOTUS chimed in. Justice Sotomayor, authoring the dissent, explains that getting the state’s highest court’s input could have negated the majority’s “hypothetical line-drawing problems.”
