Finally, LA County Democratic Party Speaks Out Regarding Fraud!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: CLARK LEE
OCTOBER 20, 2008 909.702.5809

Statement of LA County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman
On Republican Voter Registration Fraud
The Democratic Party urges LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to audit voter registration forms to protect voters against fraud

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric Bauman today released the following statement on the arrest of Young Political Majors (YPM) voter registration consultant Mark Jacoby in connection to Republican voter registration fraud:

The arrest of California Republican Party voter registration consultant Mark Jacoby, owner of Young Political Majors (YPM), in connection with massive voter registration fraud marks one step toward bringing these criminals to justice.

We are glad that after weeks of voter complaints on voter registration issues we received and working with our counterparts and authorities, the voter fraud investigation has led to the arrest. But this is only the tip of the iceberg.

The Republicans are losing ground in California, even in the traditional red counties of the state, five of which have shifted from Republican to Democatic majority this year. They will stop at nothing and will do whatever is necessary to deceive voters and strip away their right to vote, even when it means slamming voters fraudulently changing voters registration status and party affiliation.

I urge all registered voters in Los Angeles County to double check their registration status by using the online verification system at the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorders website: www.lavote.net .

And, on behalf of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, I request that Mr. Dean Logan, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, expand his audit and review of voter registration affidavits to include all voter registration affidavits turned in by Young Political Majors that specifically change voters party affiliation from Democratic Party or Decline to State to Republican Party, as a measure to protect voters from fraudulent registration. If necessary, we will seek a writ to enforce our request.

An individual willing to personally commit voter registration fraud would certainly feel no compunction about committing a widespread fraud affecting voters party affiliation. As I have always said, a citizens right to vote is the foundation of democracy and the cornerstone of democracy depends on the integrity of the voting process. We will take all steps necessary to protect the voters right to vote and bring voter fraud criminals to justice and ensu re every vote is counted, as cast.

2. Supervisor responds to the Democratic Party's request

Statement of LA County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman
Regarding Supervisor Yaroslavsky's Motion to
Audit YPM-related Voter Registrations
Supervisor responds to the Democratic Party's request to protect voters against fraud by moving to expand the
audit and review of voter registrations turned in by Young Political Majors that change voters' Party affiliation

LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Eric C. Bauman today released the following statement regarding Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yarosla vsky's motion to review voter registration affidavits turned in by Young Political Majors (YPM):

In response to complaints from voters and a request from the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky today introduced a motion requiring Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan to expand his audit and review of voter registration affidavits to include ALL voter registration affidavits returned by Young Political Majors that change voters' party affiliation from Democrat or other Parties to Republican Party.

We thank Supervisor Yaroslavsky for his expedient action in responding to our request and we are proud of him for standing up on behalf of the voters of Los Angeles County against voter registration fraud and protecting their constitutional right to vote, the most precious right in a democracy.

We urge all members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to act swiftly to support Supervisor Yaroslavsky's motion and additionally, we urge Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan to comply with the request of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party and the motion of Supervisor Yaroslavsky as expeditiously as possible.
