Conservative Recall Effort Leads To Voter Fraud Charges
Zachary Roth | January 5, 2010, 5:47PM


Not all voter fraud can be pinned on ACORN.

Two Michigan men were recently charged with voter fraud. The men, Michael Bastianelli and Harvey Robinson, allegedly faked signatures that were used to get a recall petition on the ballot.

The recall effort, which was defeated, was targeted at Democratic House Speaker Andy Dillon, and was organized by a conservative anti-tax group, the Michigan Taxpayers Alliance (MTA). MTA is led by a former GOP state representative, Leon Drolet.

The group had targeted Dillon because in 2007 he had committed the sin of supporting tax increases.

Be assured if this was a Democrat...especially one with any affiliation with ACORN (just walking past an ACORN office is enough for these shitstains), Faux would have a special about voter fraud and how the evil blacks and hispanics are out to secretly destroy democracy. But since its a rushpublican, well he was just a little "over-zealous".

So how many of these shitstains have been arrested and convicted of fraud? There were the New Hampshire phone jammers and then bogus petitions in California. Never a work peeped in the corporate media. True voter fraud as compared to astroturfed "outrage". Again, shows how lazy the corporate media is and inept as well.

Democrats better be on their guard...there are sure to be close elections this fall and the GOOP is desperate...they need to gain or splinter further and the operatives are already hard at work to make sure any close race can be stolen. When you don't have a record to run on other than "no" and their popularity ratings still suck gas, the only way they know how to "win" is by cheating.

2. two employees of ACORN are goaded into trying to "help" a pimp, Obama's corrupt ...
Sarah Palin sleeps with a guy who follows someone else who wants to secede from the U.S., to the point where he'd refuse to be buried under the U.S. flag ... crickets ...

4. You left out the republicans in Kentucky
who "sold" several of the last elections. They put republicans in office down the line. They changed the vote tally and put in false ballots to cover the republican win. I think it was the election board. BUT they were caught. Now you see how easy it is and was for the republicans to steal elections. Just think, because if you read what the newspapers dare to print, most of the election boards are republicans, and think what they have done to the results.

5. Thanks For The Input....
I wasn't aware of that case. Just more fuel to the fire.

This points out the importance of being active on the local level. It's not just the big ticket races that matter but the small ones...especially in an off-year election. A big change between '04 and '08 was the gains Democrats made on the local level...especially in Ohio...that put the vote count in Democratic hands. As Stalin said, it's not who votes, but who counts them.
