Vote late vote often

Can nothing be done to stop it?


FLORIDA RECOUNT 2018...
Rick Scott warns of 'rampant fraud'...
Orders law enforcement investigation...
Teacher finds ballot box in storage area!
Woman in Minnesota Receives Broward Ballot in Mail...
Gillum un-concedes?
DEM SUDDENLY LEADS IN AZ SENATE RACE...RESULTS...

And then this:

Every Vote Counts in Large Amounts and Much, Much More. “Literally, you can count on them or with them. The Democrats in Florida, Georgia, and Arizona are continuing to ‘count’ the ‘votes’ in the 2018 election and, curiously, as they continue to “count,” the Democrats either take the lead or close the gap.”

They mean to win. Does the GOP?

    Rampant voter fraud? How about endemic? Especially in districts or states where the County Supervisor of Elections is of the Dementocrat persuasion.

    What is likely to be exposed in Broward County, Florida is only the tip of the iceberg. What should be investigated is not only ballot tampering but other felonious means of interference with electoral integrity in the USA, such as fraudulent voter ID, invalid votes by illegal aliens, inaccurate electoral rolls and any other dirty tricks the Dementocrats deploy in their criminal rise to power.

    Any post mortems of this election by conservative pundits are based on false predicates, and therefore moot at this point until nitty gritty details of the tallies are scrutinized and analyzed. Time to come down from the ivory tower and get down to brass tacks.

    This was not a Blue Wave or even a Blue Trickle. It is the seepage of Blue Algae from outlying stagnant ponds into the mainstream of American political and electoral waters.

    Cory Booker claimed “I Am Spartacus” in the recent Kavanaugh hearings.

    Let’s add “I Am Abacus” as another motto for the Dementocrats.

    At Uni of SA, yonks ago, the advice was “Vote often, vote Labor”.

    In Australia, one can go to a polling booth at opening time, give one’s neighbour’s name and address and vote under his name, with or without his knowledge, before he arrives; one can go to each polling booth in one’s electorate, voting at each, up to 60, under one’s name, one’s neighbour’s, or someone else’s, provided one is prepared to answer “no” to the inane question “Have you voted elsewhere today?”.

    Prior to the 16 April 2007 requirement to provide ID on enrollment, one could enrol in multiple electorates and still be on those rolls.

    The 1979 SA state election result in Norwood (won by Frank Webster, Liberal) was overturned by a court decision, and a by-election held 16/2/1980. In the few months between the general election and the by-election, the Norwood electoral roll numbers increased by 10%. The vast majority were not newly turned 18yos, new residents, or people who had omitted to enroll by the previous cut-off date, they were election riggers – people from outside Norwood, typically Left-wing UofA students, who had voted in another electorate in the general election and who changed their enrolled, but not physical, address to vote again.

    There were up to 22 people enrolled at the one address, but the Electoral Commission did nothing. So Greg Crafter, ALP, romped in, and I was shortly after removed from the electoral roll, never to return. I assume the Commission would still do nothing.

    More recently, as reported in “The Advertiser”, a SA family claimed to have voted 159 times, including 31 times by a 17 year old, in a recent election. Even the AEC, which in the past has buried its head in the sand conceded it is possible, and if a rort’s possible, it is done, with only the extent being in question.

    And Australia has had the audacity to send observers to monitor other countries’ elections and mock America!

    Sometimes, a month or two after an election, there is an inconspicuous little note in the paper, declaring the number of double or triple voters in an electorate, so the AEC do some kind of audit. This does not seem to proceed to any kind of penalty however.

    Police said a Somali immigrant killed one person and wounded two others in a rush-hour stabbing spree in the heart of Australia’s second city Friday, labelling it a terrorist attack.

    The unnamed man drove a 4X4 truck loaded with gas bottles into the bustling city centre of Melbourne, ignited the vehicle in a ball of flames and then attacked passers-by with a knife, police said.

    He stabbed three people before being confronted by armed officers who eventually shot him in the chest. One victim died at the scene and the attacker died later in hospital.

    Broward County is the Democrat stronghold where the school shooter did his thing. Very Poor student supervision in the school, lack of interest in safety from the school police, and cowardice from the local sheriffs office. Now ballot boxes turning up in school closets and votes transported by private cars.

    The place is a shambles ….bit like Chicago and some other Democrat cities

    How can anyone excuse #BrowardElections blanket refusal to reveal the number of ballots cast,counted & left to be counted? Knowing how many ballots they have in their possession is one of the most important things they are required to keep track of.

    The answer is ,mandatory prison sentences and huge fines for the guilty and monstrous fines for the party they do it for,this should be put to congress to pass, bipartiscan support should be automatic ,shouldnt it ?

    Gary North – November 09, 2018:

    American voters today are divided about rhetoric. The basic policies that both parties pursue are bipartisan.

    if you look at the federal budget, year-to-year, you see almost no change. Half of the budget goes to Social Security and Medicare. About 15% of the budget goes to the Pentagon.

    These are fixed expenses. They only go up. They are never cut. If anybody attempted to cut them in Congress, he would lose the next election. Furthermore, almost all federal agencies are guaranteed of continual funding. Nobody’s going to shut down the Library of Congress. There are no congressmen calling for a shut down of the federal highway system. There are no calls for cutting any of the departments that have cabinet positions. The spending only goes up. So, all the rhetoric has to do with nickel and dime alterations of the budget. The Democrats want a little more spending than some of the Republicans, but the Republicans pretend that they want to hold the line on federal spending. It is all nonsense. The deficit today is over $1 trillion a year, and it is clearly a bipartisan deficit.

    It’s all about vague campaign promises.

    Voting is mostly symbolic. It doesn’t have to do much with substantive issues. Those issues are bipartisan. They don’t change much. But rhetoric changes, and a big part of rhetoric is symbolism.

  21. People talk about electronic voting backed up by paper records for later auditing.
    This is bassackward and akin to waiting for a crime to happen, then investigating. Too late.
    I suggest we have the usual paper ballots, backed up by electronic voting.

    You go up to the desk, you show i.d. and your name gets crossed off the paper roll as usual. Then your name gets marked off an electronic roll which is linked to all other booths.
    If anyone tries to vote a 2nd time at another booth, their name would be uncrossed on the paper roll, but will be crossed off the electronic roll.

    Maybe it’s too simple and I’m not seeing something.

    Mea culpa!

    I have to support a comment by fascist left lackey m0nty on the open thread yesterday. An attempt is clearly underway in Florida and Arizona to pervert the course of the election, and steal an advantage.

    However, the attempt is by the Demorats, not the Republicans as m0nty implied, so his record of wrongology remains intact.

    I guess Karl Rove is a conspiracy theorist, too. (Fox)

    Karl Rove: As Florida ballot count battle rages, Democrats are recklessly violating state law

    Local Democratic officials in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida are recklessly violating state law in what may be an attempt to overturn the results of Tuesday’s midterm elections for governor and the U.S. Senate in the Sunshine State.

    This looks like a repeat of the actions in Florida in the 2000 presidential election, when Democratic officials ignored state election laws – and were slapped down by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 7-2 decision.

    Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda C. Snipes said Tuesday night that 634,000 votes had been cast in the county. But by Thursday night, Snipes was claiming 712,840 ballots had been cast.

    The effect of these newly discovered votes that inexplicably appeared long after they should have been counted shrunk the leads of Republicans Gov. Rick Scott in the Senate race and former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis in the gubernatorial contest.

    Late Tuesday night Scott was up roughly 57,000 votes in his race against incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson. By Friday afternoon, Scott’s lead had declined dramatically to about 15,000 votes.

    Late Tuesday night DeSantis led Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in the gubernatorial race by 75,000 votes. But Friday afternoon DeSantis was ahead by less than half that – about 36,000 votes.

    Broward County officials blatantly disregarded the Florida law requiring that all vote-by-mail and absentee ballots be accounted for within 30 minutes of the polls closing.

    Though the county’s voting locations closed at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Snipes said Friday that she still didn’t know how many ballots remain to be processed. Nor could she say how many provisional, military or mismarked ballots she had in her possession.

    Mysteriously, over 70,000 ballots have been counted since Tuesday night with apparently no one knowing how many more are still to come.

    In addition, at least one ballot box for provisional votes was left unattended at a polling place – a school where it was discovered days after the election. The box was locked but not sealed, and could have been tampered with or stuffed. Could there be others?

    Snipes then refused to allow Republican officials to inspect all ballots before they are submitted to the Canvassing Board. And she refused other requests for public records that should be available under Florida’s expansive “sunshine laws,” drawing a sharp rebuke from a judge late Friday afternoon.

    In response to Republican lawsuits, Florida state Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips ruled Friday that “there has been a violation of the Florida constitution” and the state’s public records act by Broward County officials. The judge sided with Scott and ordered that Republicans should be granted “immediate access” to information they have requested about ballots Broward County.

    There are also problems in next-door Palm Beach County.

    On Wednesday morning, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections Susan Bucher stopped filing updates of the vote count with the Florida Department of State as required by law. The law mandates that she report every 45 minutes until all the election results are in.

    Instead, Bucher dropped news of the 15,000 surprise ballots she’s counted since Tuesday night at any time she chose.

    Besides telling the state to get lost, Bucher is also refusing to allow designated official political party representatives into the ballot counting area. She’s kept them isolated behind a glass wall where they can’t see and hear all that’s going on – yet another violation of Florida election law.

    Even more troubling, Bucher has copied vote-by-mail ballots that she claims are damaged, but without allowing witnesses to observe the process as required by Florida law. In fact, she explicitly denied requests for witnesses to see her staff at work.

    As election supervisor, Bucher also assumed the power to determine what constitutes a “valid vote.” Under Florida law, she doesn’t have that authority. She can only refer questionable ballots to the county’s bipartisan Canvassing Board.

    This is not the first time these two Board of Election supervisors have shown contempt for their official responsibilities under Florida law, especially Snipes in Broward County.

    In 2012 Snipes was criticized for absentee ballots that never arrived, balky scanners that didn’t work, slow reporting and mounds of ballots that showed up long after Election Day.

    In 2014 Snipes demonstrated such incompetence that even fellow Democrats complained her office made it difficult for people to vote.

    In 2016 Snipes allowed her employees to campaign on county time, violated state law by posting election results half an hour before the polls closed and was sued for leaving amendments off the ballots.

    A judge also ruled that Snipes’ office violated state and federal laws by illegally destroying ballots. But the ruling regarding her action illegally obliterating evidence two years ago did not come down until this year.

    And there’s more.

    In 2017, accusations of ballot stuffing swirled around Snipes’ office during local elections. She even admitted that ineligible voters who were on the rolls and had voted.

    This year Snipes has drawn more fire. It was revealed that her office broke Florida law earlier this election season by opening ballots in private without observers present (maybe a trick she learned from Bucher).

    Then after people complained they didn’t get their absentee ballots, it turned out that Snipes failed to notify some voters that their right to cast an absentee ballot had expired. She blamed it on not having enough funds to mail notifications. Maybe that was because she wasted her budget by sending some voters ballots with duplicate pages.

    This may all be rank incompetence, but perhaps these actions by two Democratic election officials are a smokescreen for something worse – a deliberate attempt to overturn the Florida election results.

    Fortunately, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., blew the whistle and the Scott campaign, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Republican National Committee have rushed to the scene of the possible crime and filed lawsuits to ensure that voters – not Democratic officials – pick the next governor and U.S. senator in Florida.

    There may be a basis for the U.S. Justice Department to intervene and investigate this troubling situation in Broward and Palm Beach counties to answer the obvious question:

    Are Democratic elections officials deliberately breaking the law and playing games to delay everything just long enough so they can create just the number of ballots needed to overturn the election results to install Gillum as governor and keep Nelson in the Senate?

    That’s the kind of behavior you expect in Third World banana republics – not true great democracies, and certainly not the United States.

    Let’s hope it’s not too late and that any election fraud in Broward and Palm Beach counties in Florida can be reversed.

    Court orders #PalmBeachCounty Elections Dept. to follow law & submit “over-voted” & “under-voted” mail ballots for an open & public review before they are counted

    They are refusing to comply with the court order

    Can someone explain the detail of this fraud to me?

    – Did the ballots cast reconcile to the voter tallies on the ballots issued?
    – If yes, were the specific electoral officers on whose voter tally was adjusted involved in the fraud?

  29. Zatara

    – Did the ballots cast reconcile to the voter tallies on the ballots issued?

    The Palm and Broward County Election Supervisors are the only people who can answer that question and they refuse to.

    “Maybe it’s too simple and I’m not seeing something.”

    Public key cryptography provides both encryption AND authentication: that is, it means I can not only send you a message that I am confident only you will see, but also you can be sure that it was me who sent it. While the level of security required is a “moving target” in that what was reasonably safe 10 years ago is now hopelessly inadequate, it is a feature of these types of systems that creating the keys requires a linear increase in computing power as key length increases, while breaking longer keys requires exponentially more computing power as key length increases. This means that keys that even the US NSA/CIA etc have a hard time breaking are relatively trivial to create – in less than 30 minutes, a normal desktop PC can create keys it would take NSA decades to break, if they could do so at all (assuming current hardware)

    The upshot of all this is that creating the system you desire IS doable with current technology. But it is not something politicians WANT to get rid of – When the system can be gamed, and those who control the rules are the beneficiaries of the gaming, why would you expect the rules to change against gaming?

  31. 2dogs

    The Palm and Broward County Election Supervisors are the only people who can answer that question and they refuse to.

    Charge them immediately. Scrutineers are entitled to that information on the evening of the election for each and every booth. No excuses for not providing it.

  32. 2dogs;
    I just do not understand that these days when there is clear evidence of law breaking, the perpetrators aren’t being charged.
