This Is Not The Voter Fraud Virginia Republicans Are Looking For

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Scary monstersGuys, guys, calm down now. You may have thought you finally found some voter fraud after all these years of searching far and wide and under every ACORN, but it is pretty clear to the Virginia attorney general, registrar and Board of Elections that you didn’t. To them, it is quite obvious that a guy working for the RNC conducting voter registrations, who was caught blocks from their office shadily throwing completed voter registration forms in someone else’s Dumpster, simply cannot be guilty of voter registration fraud, despite working for the company widely known to commit voter registration fraud for the RNC. How do they know this? Because nowhere on Virginia’s voter registration applications does it list party affiliation! Therefore, dude would have no way of knowing the forms he was throwing away belonged to Democrats. And there are so many other reasons he might have thrown away people’s applications! Investigation closed! Wait, really, the investigation’s closed? Sho nuff.

“There’s no way to tell by party when people fill out these forms, what party they’re affiliated with, so I don’t think there’s any political motivation,” Virginia Registrar Brandi Lilly said Friday.

Obviously, the folks being paid millions to do voter registration for the RNC in Virginia could not possibly have come up with any super sophisticated ways of knowing if they were registering Democrats or Republicans. Like for instance, they could definitely not use precinct data to determine if someone registering were statistically more likely to be a Democrat or a Republican. And they certainly would never use demographic data, like happening to notice if the person attempting to register was, say, BLACK BLACK BLACK OMG SO BLACK Y’ALL. And a third thing they would never do is happen to ask that voter while they were registering that voter if he or she happened to be Democrat or Republican. It is just logic!

So Brandi Lilly is obviously correct. There could have been no political motivation for throwing out those registration forms that one and only time (that Colin Small was caught). It must have been something else entirely to make that guy throw out those voter reg forms!

Like …

Like they said, case closed!

With votes. GOTV, y'all! Especially if you live somewhere you don't think it matters – Obama and the Dems need to win the popular vote, and the GOP is going to try and run up the score in the South to muddy the waters.

This is not the voter registration fraud you're looking for. This the the voter registration fraud hiding in plain site.

LibertyLover October 22, 2012 at 10:05 am

Exactly so. The voter registration fraud you are looking for is only done by Democrats. It's ok if you are a Republican. Duh.

PhilippePetain October 22, 2012 at 12:46 pm

The great thing is they probably rationalize it by saying "Oh well, them balcks is already doin' it, yeeehaw!" and they probably actually believe it.

These people are about as smart as pondscum.

Mumbletypeg October 22, 2012 at 9:30 am

Well I at least would like to pin a medal on the store manager who saw this dreg of society dumping the forms behind his place. He didn't need long to put 2 and 2 together.

Terry October 22, 2012 at 9:43 am

Now the good people of Virginia need to call their State reps and the Board of Elections and demand an investigation.

Esteev October 22, 2012 at 10:25 am

What part of "case closed" don't you understand?

actor212 October 22, 2012 at 9:53 am

He probably pays his carting service by the pound and said "WTF?"

nonbeliever7 October 22, 2012 at 10:38 am

I'm certain the fine, christian, law-abiding Repubs will immediately start boycotting the store that reported this crime. Cause that's the kind of petty vindictive assholes they really are…

BadKitty904 October 22, 2012 at 9:31 am

Snark Off: Does the GOP *genuinely* so hate and fear the American electoral process? Is there truly *no* corruption or crookedness these people will not stoop to in order to continue their rape of America?

freakishlywrong October 22, 2012 at 9:35 am

No. They want only to "win". Of course, the rest of us lose. And people vote for them.

BadKitty904 October 22, 2012 at 9:38 am

So. "We must destroy democracy in order to save it"?

FakaktaSouth October 22, 2012 at 9:42 am

Yes. Yes they hate democracy, yes they loooove winning – however that has to happen. It's just what HAS to be. They must win this battle however they can. It's just what's right. Always. Right.

thatsitfortheother1 October 22, 2012 at 9:44 am

They must win this battle because they have never won anything else in life's lottery.

actor212 October 22, 2012 at 9:47 am

They're worried the nation is as liberal as they fear it is.

NEWSFLASH: it is.

Esteev October 22, 2012 at 11:05 am

BoroPrimorac October 22, 2012 at 11:46 am

I'm afraid these aren't death throes.

tessiee October 22, 2012 at 12:18 pm

Relax. I've heard rats are really easy to deal with when they'r cornered.

HateMachine October 22, 2012 at 10:54 am

Well yes, of course they do. This is the logical endpoint of ideological extremism.

If you really, truly believe that your policies will be shiny golden salvation for your country, and that your opponent's policies would bring ruin, what would you stop at to make sure you're the one in charge? Assassination probably wouldn't be off the table, so to get squeamish at a little systematic voter fraud would be letting your country down.

DemmeFatale October 22, 2012 at 11:24 am

So true.
(If only the rest of us could understand their POV.)

tessiee October 22, 2012 at 12:16 pm

As someone (sorry, don't remember who) commented in the last thread about this little cracker, it's crude, like Third World banana republic crude. We're about two months away from loudspeakers on poles broadcasting, "All hail our fairly and democratically elected Beloved Leader!", and no, I don't mean President Obama.

Redgyal October 22, 2012 at 1:03 pm

Well when that happens I hope the UN and other developed nations react the same way they do with third world countries….because if not, they would seem slightly biased.

Evil looking little toad, but these workers are generally paid by the registration so why would he be throwing out some of his pay. I have a hard time believing he wasn’t instructed how to profile people and told to do what he did.

He certainly doesn't look smart enough to figure it out on his own…

Fear. Fear is the mindkiller. We have to change the culture of fear. It's going to be hard work, but it will happen one day and sooner rather than later.

FakaktaSouth October 22, 2012 at 9:58 am

Well, yes, imagined fear is often trumped by actual starvation, misery and finding your ownself completely fucked. Luckily (luckily?) we are at the point where these terrible policies are sorta screwing enough stuff up for folks that they have to look at self-interest and their 'actual' misery instead of their perceived fear of what does not exist.

actor212 October 22, 2012 at 10:17 am

Here's the thing: when people in the 40s and 50s were dying in the streets and on the roads of Appalachia of starvation (that's right, during and after WWII, people starved in America) that's what it took to get America to recognize there was an issue of poverty.

But people fall into poverty and hunger now one at a time, and so it's viewed as a social problem: this person doesn't work hard enough to feed his/her family.

I'm hoping it doesn't get to the point it did under Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower for things to change.

BoroPrimorac October 22, 2012 at 11:35 am

Hopefully, the cunts who want to see the safety net gutted will opt out of Social Security and Medicare when the opportunity arises. If this privatization happens in the next decade, I give it about twenty five years before the greedy forty and fifty somethings, who thought they could manage their money better, are out dumpster diving.

Truly. The Rethugs have stolen one presidential election and will not hesitate to steal another, if they think they can get away with it again.

someone check him for a backwards "B" carved into his face by the black Barack Obama supporters who forced him to throw away all those voter registration forms (and carved his face with backwards "B" because it was definitely not him using a mirror).

Why don't Liberals play the same game? I'm ready to see one of two outcomes for the virus that has become GOP: (i) give up and let me them have it for a few years until America wakes up, or (ii) play their dirty game in way's they can't imagine (e.g., something parallel to a GOP human centipede).

thatsitfortheother1 October 22, 2012 at 10:28 am

One tiny problem. They had it for 8 years and want nothing but more.

I suppose you're right, but it doesn't stop me from hoping that Mitt's aging body exports a clot to his brain at tonight's debate.

I like how this is one time when I could say I'd like to beat the fuck out of this guy next to a dumpster with votes and it would be literally applicable.

Beat the fuck out of him with Promnight Dumpster Ballots!

SayItWithWookies October 22, 2012 at 10:14 am

Now just calm down a second — see, voter fraud is only real if it's imaginary. Therefore, Democrats, Planned Parenthood, ACORN and the SEIU are all guilty of voter fraud. Real actual observed voter fraud, on the other hand, is simply not voter fraud — so this guy, Kitty Harris, Rick Scott and the Supreme Court are never guilty of it. Now just go back to sleep — nothing interesting going on here until about November 7th.

From The News Virginian:

Working to ensure voters are registered is keeping those local registrar’s offices hopping right now.

“We are flooded,” Augusta County voter Registrar Brandi Lilly said. “We’re processing applications as quickly as our fingers can type. We’re swamped.”

The article is filled with registrars politely bitching about how tough it is to enable folks to vote. So you can see how she's not real worked up about dumpsters full of paperwork that never make it to her desk.

Mojopo October 22, 2012 at 11:12 am

Is anyone else imagining a lady in a pantsuit with a small styrofoam plate of ham biscuits on her desk, absolutely pissed because she's running five minutes late for her monthly dye job?

mrblifil October 22, 2012 at 12:58 pm

No see upthread she's actually kind of a hottie. I'm thinking ex-cheerleader wife of former athlete/current GOP "small businessman" party-affiliated muckety muck. And the poster child for white entitlement.

mavenmaven October 22, 2012 at 10:36 am

No way to tell which party they are affiliated with, except for the little box that says Republican or Democratic.
And any name that sounds off-white.
And the area the forms come from.
Other than that, there's no way he could know which way they will vote.

CommieDad October 22, 2012 at 11:00 am

It really doesn't matter why he threw the registrations away, unless the reason is, "I changed the address of all my Democrat [sic] friends. I felt guilty and threw them away."

In my state, we do all this shit online.*

* Washington State's online registration is, sadly, not very secure. So my entire argument is a red hearing.

Barrelhse October 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

Yes, Colin, there really is a Santa Claus.

Mojopo October 22, 2012 at 11:05 am

The investigation is closed and now what? So it's OK with the registrar that he 86'ed a shit ton of forms? He walks?

Biel_ze_Bubba October 22, 2012 at 8:55 pm

He got a midnight call from Karl Rove, and (after putting on clean underwear) he decided it would be wise to shut up and plead guilty. No investigation needed, see?

decentcitizen October 22, 2012 at 12:00 pm

You don't have a case of voter fraud unless we say it's a case of voter fraud. When we say it's voter fraud, it's voter fraud (unless it isn't then it's still voter fraud).

tessiee October 22, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Democrats voting = voter fraud.
Actual voter fraud commiteed by Reep = move along, nothing to see here.

PhilippePetain October 22, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Well, the ones that vote for the corporate overlords tend to be pathetic non-winners and frustrated, but dumb, working class white males. At least in my experience.

Does it matter if there were political motivations? Isn't it illegal to throw out voter registration forms, period?

glamourdammerung October 22, 2012 at 4:57 pm

You are being rude by questioning Cuccinelli's excuse.

69WideStance October 22, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Attorney General Cuccinelli claims that his hands are tied, and that he cannot begin an investigation without instructions from the Virginia Board of Elections. In case you’re interested, here are the email addresses of two of the three members of the Board of elections: charles.judd @sbe.virginia.gov, and don.palmer @sbe.virginia.gov.

HelmutNewton October 22, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Silly Wonkette! You can only call it "voter fraud" when it involves non-existent, dead Black Panther types who vote Democrat.

When you disenfranchise college-age, poor, elderly and minority voters and throw up multiple obstacles for them to vote, that's just "protecting the integrity of the election".

glamourdammerung October 22, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Funny, I do not recall such reservations about "investigating" the EPA and the PPACA.

glamourdammerung October 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm

sudsmckenzie October 22, 2012 at 10:17 am

Me too, raced even, the best comment I've seen yet was "next thing you know he's gonna admit he has two balls". I have been trolling velo news ect… I am particularly amused that a "smoking gun" would have come from Sheryl Crow, his fiance he dumped when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

thatsitfortheother1 October 22, 2012 at 10:22 am

LOL. One of my siblings took second in the Colorado roads some years back. Said that even amateurs had about 50% on roids.

Funny that so many on the team finally turned on him. Hamilton and Landis, no surprise, but Andreau?

actor212 October 22, 2012 at 10:25 am

Andreu was one of the first. In fact, he and his wife Betsy were (still are) basically persona non grata.

You might recall Andreu was one of the first American commentators on the TdF when Outdoor Living Network starting broadcasting it live. As soon as he raised a stink about Armstrong, he was canned.

ETA: Actually, it was Betsy who testified under oath that Lance had admitted doping in 2006. Andreu supported his wife's testimony and himself was caught on EPO.

sudsmckenzie October 22, 2012 at 10:42 am

I actually raced with Andreau as a youngster. I have a crush on his younger sister to this day!

Very cool. I'm nearly 60 and still ride, MTB more than road though. I've lived in SW Germany for the last 20 years and the trail access and road courtesy is really amazing. I got started living in Boulder, back in the days of the Red Zinger Classic.

Andreu has a long history of…shade…when it come to PEDs. For instance, he aligned with the Rock Racing team in 2007, whose owner said "If you don't win, you're off the team"

It's no surprise that squad was hit with any number of suspensions…
