Smooth Criminals: The Republican Al Capones of Voter Registration Fraud

How’d you like to find out that when you thought you were signing a petition to register sex offenders or get lower gas prices, you’d actually had your political party switched from Democrat to Republican? That’s happening in California, again. Yes, again. This is a reoccurring problem for the Republican Party every election cycle. It’s what’s known as a “bounty hunt” – paid voter registration drives that lead to accusations of massive fraud.

This time it’s Momentum Political Service in Sacramento, California, turning in thousands of invalid voter registration applications according to Sacramento County election officials. Over 3,100 voter registration cards have been turned over to the Secretary of State’s election fraud investigation unit.

You may have missed the long, sordid history the Republican Party has with voter registration fraud, but I’ll bet you know all about ACORN. You can’t turn on the news without still hearing about ACORN, which advocated for low- and moderate-income families by working on neighborhood safety, voter registration and affordable housing.

ACORN was never found guilty of leading to ONE fraudulent vote. Not one. Furthermore, ACORN was never hired by the Democratic Party to do voter registration and the Obama campaign did its own voter registration, rather than hire it out. Notably, the 2008 Obama campaign did not pay their volunteers, let alone pay per voter registration form.

However, the organizations hired by Republicans do pay per form, as did ACORN, although ACORN was a non-profit organization whereas the outlets hired by Republicans are for profit. This has led to massive voter registration fraud, described as “organized crime” and “bounty hunts.”

2. Only way to stop this is for US attorneys to start indicting people

and making example of them. But since most of these us attorneys are Republicans never removed by POTUS................. Never mind.

I will be to be delighted if against all odds POTUS wins because at this point I think the GOP voter suppression tactics will work.
