A Note to the DNC and RNC

A year later, but better late than never. Now, let’s see who reports about these conclusions

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2 /U.S. Newswire/ — The American Center for Voting Rights Legislative Fund (“ACVR Legislative Fund”) today released the most comprehensive and authoritative review of the facts surrounding allegations of vote fraud, intimidation and suppression made during the 2004 presidential election.

The ACVR Legislative Fund report, “Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression In The 2004 Presidential Election,” finds that while Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of voter intimidation and suppression, neither party has a clean record on the issue. The report finds that paid Democrat operatives were far more involved in voter intimidation and suppression activities than were their Republican counterparts during the 2004 presidential election. Examples include paid Democrat operatives charged with slashing tires on GOP get-out-the-vote vans in Milwaukee and an Ohio court order stopping Democrat operatives from calling voters telling them the wrong date for the election and faulty polling place information…
…In addition to common-sense recommendations such as required government issued photo ID at the polls, accurate statewide voter registration databases and a zero-tolerance policy against vote fraud and intimidation, ACVR Legislative Fund identifies five cities as election fraud “hot spots” which require additional immediate attention prior to the 2006 elections. These cities were identified based on the findings of the report and the cities’ documented history of fraud and intimidation.
1. Philadelphia, Pa.
2. Milwaukee, Wis.
3. Seattle, Wash.
4. St. Louis/East St. Louis, Mo./Ill.
5. Cleveland, Ohio

Well, knock me over with a feather. Where was Jimmay Cawtah and his mon-i-touring committee, makin’ sure we don’ act like a third world country?
UPDATE: Captain Ed has more on the ‘bi-partisan or not’ nature of the group issuing the report.

    Oh man! This comment has nothing to do with the substance of your post, rather you choice of pictures. That is classic. You just went up in my book.
    Blazing Saddles is one of my all time favorite movies. In fact, I harbor a mini vault of sound files from the movie.

    WHAT?!!! Chicago’s not on the list?
    But I second WunderKraut’s comment on the selected photo.

  3. (Thank you for your support. Works, doesn’t it? Always return to the classics to make your point.)
    Notice there’s not one southern city on that list. Boatload of Democratic party enclaves there, tho. Hmmm…makes ya wonder…

    Consider the source. The ACVR was founded by Republicans (Bottom of the page here). Presumably, they want to make Republicans look better by finding Democratic faults as much as they’re interested in fair elections.
    Just about anyone who is interested enough in elections to look into “voter intimidation” is interested enough to have their own horse in the race. I doubt this report was researched as even handedly as the ACVR would like you to believe.
    In short, this has about as much value as a U.N. Report on Human Rights.

    I can’t believe I forgot Blazing Saddles on my movie list. “Mongo only pawn in game of life…”

    Bill, true words that, and thanks for forcing me to go digging. But I have to be a teensie bit grateful for their press ‘report’, as I’d not heard of some of the incidents, where I had heard, ad nauseum, the Democratic spewings. I’d also think there’s enough bald truth contained to force this kind of reaction from moonbats (whom I will NOT link to, but will send such along should anyone be interested):

    Nonetheless, as per the plan, Rush Limbaugh reportedly was making good use of ACVR’s disinformation campaign on his radio show today, and his current homepage points to the ACVR press release claiming Philadelphia as the nation’s “#1 Election Fraud ‘Hot Spot’.
    Mission Accomplished, ACVR!
    But make no mistake. As incidious as these evil ACVR democracy haters are, they have a very clear and transparent purpose above and beyond deflecting from the real malfeasance that occured during Election 2004 which allowed George W. Bush to appear to be victorious. Their real work is to continue the massive disenfranchisement of American Voters by pounding the phony “Voter Fraud” drum in order to give credence to their call for Photo ID requirements at the polls.
    Photo ID, of course, would disenfranchise still millions more American voters since the elderly, minority groups and urban dwellers — overwhelmingly Democratic voters, in other words — also disproportionately do not have Photo ID’s and would thus be disallowed from voting in upcoming elections.
    Hearne, from his “non-partisan” post at the ACVR, still sits on the Baker/Carter National Election Reform Commission’s “Advisory Panel” where he continues to manipulate the sham committee to ensure their final recommendations will include Photo ID and National Computerized Voter Databases which can be easily gamed to achieve the desired results anywhere in the country.
    “Thor” Hearne and Jim Dyke may be unabashedly evil and transparent in their loathing of fair and transparent democracy in America. But they are clever charlatans who know how to get the black-bag job done for their GOP paymasters. And until Democrats wake up and realize the depths to which their opponents will sink to manipulate and/or steal elections, they will continue to lose one after another to these guys. Wake up DNC!
    Don’t believe me? Take a look at OH-2’s Special Election for the U.S. House of Representatives, the results of which were posted just moments ago.

    He then posts running election tabulations under the headline:

    GOP Ohio Miracle of the Moment!
    Republican Schmidt Takes 4% Lead Over Democrat Hackett in Final 22 Minutes of Vote Tally!

    …which suggests Republicans padded the totals in the nick of time. (Or maybe I misinterpreted that…I don’t speak moonbat very fluently.) So, while the ACVR may not be the non-partisan bastion I intially took them for (and thank you for the correction, Bill), they do seem to be serving a useful purpose as a counter weight.

    Oh, I’m all in favor of people who throw moonbats into such a tizzy.
