Man Learns Voting Is Its Own Reward, Too Bad Reward Is A $1000 Fine

Aubry Wilhoite. Enemy within.
Conservatives looking for the newest fad in voter suppression need to flip off the Drudge Sirens and stealthily motor on down to Tennessee. Last year, 58-year old Aubry Wilhoite voted early in the primary for Bedford County Commissioner. Since no one was on his ballot for this office, he wrote in his own name because democracy sometimes seems quaint. But this is America and Wilhoite is now on the hook to the State of Tennessee for $1,000. So put that in your pipe and teach it to your AP American Exceptionalism class.

Wingnut Group’s Exciting ‘Vote Fraud’ App Discovers Black Woman In Polling Place

The tech-savvy wingnuts at True The Vote (a group inalterably opposed to both truth and voting) had a brilliant idea to allow their supporters to document all the dirty shenanigans and voter fraud that they just knew for sure was going on in the election this year: A week before the election, they released a cool smartphone app so people could be all crowdsourcey and make sure that no fraud went unreported. The app allowed people to report all sorts of chicanery that had to be happening at their polling places: Read more on Wingnut Group’s Exciting ‘Vote Fraud’ App Discovers Black Woman In Polling Place…

Nope, Still No Voter Fraud In Colorado

It's super easy to do
Are you still worried that Colorado is a hotbed of voter fraud? You’re supposed to be, according to convicted criminal “journalist” James O’Keefe, who went there to prove that Democrats are totally stealing all the ballots. (Spoiler: He did not prove that.) And there’s also been some Olympic-level concern trolling by Colorado’s Republican Secretary of State Scott Gessler, who insisted that the United States Postal Service is “the greatest vehicle for disenfranchisement in the country.” Read more on Nope, Still No Voter Fraud In Colorado…

Arizona GOP Will Murder All Early Voting, Unless It Is With Mitt Romney

Won't someone speak out against this sort of thing?
A couple days ago, we brought you the story of a completely fabricated wingnut outrage over a Latino man supposedly “caught” on video as he “stuffed a ballot box” in Arizona’s August primary. Except he wasn’t frauding anything at all. Read more on Arizona GOP Will Murder All Early Voting, Unless It Is With Mitt Romney…

James O’Keefe Looks For Voter Fraud In Colorado, Finds Nothing. Again.

Ever since we heard the news that James O’Keefe had launched a voter fraud scavenger hunt in Colorado, we’ve been eagerly waiting, as we’re sure you have, Wonketteers, for his latest video to drop. Now that we’ve had a chance to see the highlight reel of O’Keefe’s Rocky Mountain Mustache Caper,  purporting to show Democratic Sen. Mark Udall’s “advocates” standing by while an army of fraudulent voters gear up to steal the election, we have to say we’re a little disappointed.

Poor James O’Keefe Can’t Even Trick Dumb Dems Into Committing Voter Fraud

Image via YouTube James O’Keefe’s fault — if he has a fault — is that his flair for the dramatic can sometimes get in the way of his top-secret undercover investigations. Subtlety is not something that comes naturally to the wunderkind who rose to conservative fame on the strength of his downmarket Huggy Bear impression. During his most recent operation in Colorado, however, things took a turn for the intellectual. O’Keefe’s new approach to expose all those left-wing ballot bandits: pass himself off as a liberal academic with the help of a young sidekick, grownup facial hair and, presumably, some leather elbow patches.

Voter Fraud Is Real, And It’s All Republicans

Sometimes you just forget you already did that
Republican governors and secretaries of state are determined to stop the scourge of Voter Fraud, by ensuring that the wrong kind of people can’t vote. (Poors, minorities, Democrats — you know the type.) Sure we laugh at them, but it’s no laughing matter. Voter fraud is a real problem. Among Republicans, anyway.

Supreme Court Murders Early Voting In Ohio, Oh Well

Don't be ridiculous. Of course you didn't
Oh hi, Ohio, were you getting ready to start early voting tomorrow? Yeah, you can go ahead and cancel those plans. The Supreme Court decided — in a SHOCKING! 5-4 split, and you will probably never be able to guess who voted how* — that’s on hold for now: Read more on Supreme Court Murders Early Voting In Ohio, Oh Well…

Sore Loserman Chris McDaniel Demands Mississippi GOP Give Him Senate Seat, Because

Actual picture of Chris McDaniel
Remember that time waaaaay back in June when Mississippi Republicans had a Senate primary race, and the teabagger favorite, state Sen. Chris McDaniel — who sure is an interesting fella with really nice, totally-not-racist supporters — lost to sitting Sen. Thad Cochran, and everyone said, “Yup, that’s what we thought would happen,” and moved on with their lives?

This Wisconsin GOP Donor Is The Very Bestest At Voter Fraud

We have listened to the ceaseless drumbeat of voter fraud allegations for SO GODDAMN LONG and we honestly did figure that their overzealous searching would eventually turn up some minor thing somewhere, and then based on that minor thing, they could crow about how they were right that Demoncraps were bussing truckloads of Messicans to vote for Obama. Well, all that looking for fraud did indeed locate some fraudliness, but it probably wasn’t what they’d hoped. Let’s get to know one Robert Monroe, Wisconsin Republican donor and multiple ballot-caster. Read more on This Wisconsin GOP Donor Is The Very Bestest At Voter Fraud…

Whoops, Looks Like Tennessee Forgot To Stop Racisming

You know what’s wonderful? Living in a post-racial America, where everyone is judged based on the content of their character and not the color of their skin. For example: Tucker Carlson is a dick not because of his race, but because he is a cosmic turd wrapped in leaking anal polyps sent here to punish us for some unknown sin. Hell, racism is so far in The Past that John Roberts and SCOTUS said we don’t need no stinkin Voting Rights Act. But apparently Tennessee never got the memo: Read more on Whoops, Looks Like Tennessee Forgot To Stop Racisming…

Sharron Angle Pretty Sure She Is The Senior Senator From Nevada, Actually

We all had a bit of a sad when crazy Sharron Angle and her Second Amendment solutions lost her challenge to Harry Reid back in 2010. Oh, sure, Harry’s competent and an effective Majority Leader and, significantly, not full-bugfuck crazy. But Sharron Angle was entertaining, with her nutso call — long before the election of course, not after — for armed insurrection if she lost, and her fear that Harry Reid would unleash cocaine-crazed monkeys upon the populace, and her charmingly casual ethnic slurs about those Messican kids who look Asian to her. Happily, she’s just as unhinged as ever, and in an appearance on the Nevada Newsmakers teevee show Thursday insisted that voter fraud is rampant, just completely rampant in U.S. America, and for all she knows, maybe she really won in 2010. It’s just a rhetorical question, mind you. But maybe that happened? Because even though study after study shows that voter fraud is extremely rare, she knows better than to trust studies, because for one thing, they downplay all the voter fraud she just knows is out there.

Just Because ‘True The Vote’ People Are Paranoid Doesn’t Mean IRS, FBI And ATF Aren’t Out To Get Them

Wonkamigos and wonkiritas, we have a problem. It seems that some piece of shit Tea Party group has decided that it is perfectly appropriate to attack our beloved 2013 Legislative Badass of the Year, Elijah Cummings (D-Pure Awesomesauce). And they did not only attack him, but they did so in a Congressional hearing. Yep, the GOP Majority, in their infinite wisdom, decided to invite these wackjobs to testify before Congress, which used to mean something. But apparently no one thought to give them basic lessons in How Not To Be A Asshole. Take it away, Politico: A conservative group claiming it was targeted by the Internal Revenue Service stole the show at a congressional hearing on Thursday when it veered off topic and accused top panel Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings of harassment. We recently covered the bullshit IRS butthurt, but this takes it to a whole new level. Let’s wonksplore.  Read more on Just Because ‘True The Vote’ People Are Paranoid Doesn’t Mean IRS, FBI And ATF Aren’t Out To Get Them…

Texas Voter ID Law Will Work Just Fine. Except for 200,000 People. In One County.

Nobody needs to worry about Texas’s new voter ID law — at least, nobody except for the god-knows-how many people who end up in long lines while poll workers help people sort through the problems resulting from the new voter ID law. Just to be on the safe side, the Dallas County elections department mailed notices to roughly 200,000 voters to inform them that they may face problems at the polls, since their names on the voting rolls don’t exactly match the names on their state-issued photo IDs. And that’s just one county. But even if that results in some voters deciding to give up in response to long lines and delays, that’s a small price to pay to prevent vast numbers of acts of voter fraud, which may number in the high single digits.

Quick, Let’s All Do Frauds On PA Elections

Mitt Romney’s chances of winning Pennsylvania’s electoral votes were dealt a serious blow on Friday as a Commonwealth Court judge issued a permanent injunction against the enforcement of PA’s strict voter ID law. In the ruling, Judge Bernard L. McGinley noted that, despite compelling evidence that the law would disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of eligible voters, the state did a poor job of explaining why the law was necessary, in the sense that they did not even attempt to do so: Respondents stipulated that the reason [for the law] was not predicated upon in-person voter fraud, and that there were no specific incidents of voter fraud underlying passage of the Voter ID law. Oh sure, they expect us to believe that Democrats were winning all those elections because people were legally voting for them. Read more on Quick, Let’s All Do Frauds On PA Elections…

Liz Cheney’s Husband Sees Voter Fraud Every Time He Looks In A Mirror

Wyoming’s Own Liz Cheney is very from Wyoming, and probably so is her husband Phil Perry, who “continues to practice law in Washington,” and “has been registered to vote in both Virginia and Wyoming for the past nine months, even though he signed a document in Wyoming saying he was not registered elsewhere,” which is such a Wyoming thing to do, right? We don’t know, honestly, that’s why we’re asking. You see, we are not as from Wyoming as Liz Cheney and her husband who practices law in Washington and isn’t from Wyoming but is registered to vote there AND in Virginia, because he’s from Wyoming. Let’s look at Wyoming’s voter registration form (.pdf) to see what kind of fraud that high-powered Washington lawyer and Liz Cheney spouse Phil Perry committed in the name of being Mr. Mrs. Wyoming: Read more on Liz Cheney’s Husband Sees Voter Fraud Every Time He Looks In A Mirror…

Zombies Find Cashing In On Farm Subsidies More Lucrative Than Voting

So the GOP has been on a tirade about combating voter fraud by dead people, even though after spending millions of dollars like the folks in South Carolina, they find out that dead people aren’t voting, because they are dead and zombies aren’t real. However, we now learn that dead people are storing up treasures in heaven, apparently, because they are totally cashing in money from farm subsidies!

South Carolina Sadly Lacking In Zombie Voters

Zombies are all the rage these days, from the video games kids are playing to teevee shows and movies, you can’t go anywhere to escape them. Not even the voting booth, according to South Carolina lying liar Attorney General Alan Wilson. From the Columbia Free Times: For a while last year, you couldn’t turn on Fox News without seeing S.C. GOP Attorney General Alan Wilson saying things like, “We know for a fact that there are deceased people whose identities are being used in elections in South Carolina.” That’s right people – it was a FACT. Not a rumor, or gossip, or hearsay, or an educated guess based on circumstances, but a stone-cold FACT. If only some state agency would spend 18 months investigating this, so that Attorney General Alan Wilson could pimp a 500-page report to show how correct his statement about facts would turn out to be. A year and a half after a zombie voter fever fell over Republicans in campaign mode, a state police investigation found no indication that anyone purposefully cast a ballot using the name of a dead person in South Carolina. Man, this must be embarrassing for Attorney General Alan Wilson, huh? Let’s sexplore.  Read more on South Carolina Sadly Lacking In Zombie Voters…

86-Year-Old Minnesota Lady With Dementia Revealed As Vote Fraud Ringleader

Drudge Sirens! We have finally found some voter fraud! And we mean REAL voter fraud, unlike a GOP guy throwing away voter registration forms, GOP voter suppression efforts, an election worker adding GOP votes to blank absentee ballots, or idiot Fox News fans “testing” whether vote fraud was possible. No, by “voter fraud,” we mean “someone who wanted to vote for Obama (though it was actually just the primary).” Duh. Margaret Schneider, an 86-year-old woman in St. Peter, Minnesota, voted twice in the 2012 primary elections: once by absentee ballot on July 13, and a second time on election day, Aug. 14. The fraudster admits that she double-voted, but the liberal media merely winks at this crime against democracy with a lot of phony excuses, parroting some nonsense about her having been “diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease” and claiming that “dementia is one of her symptoms.” We believe that firmness is the only way to deal with sweet old ladies with degenerative neurological conditions, and we call upon elections officials nationwide to make sure this never happens again by requiring all voters to undergo DNA analysis and a colonoscopy before voting, and also by sending her to jail forever and ever the end amen.

Maine GOP Chair: I See Black People

DId you know only about 1 percent of Mainers are of the African American variety of American? Did you know that adds up (every little bit counts!) to about 15,000 or so black Mainers? Well Maine GOP chair Charlie Webster apparently did not know that, because, as he told NBC, a whole bunch of black people showed up to vote on Election Day — dozens and dozens of them! — but Charlie Webster and his friends don’t know anyone who’s black! He’s not saying they vote frauded Maine … he is just sayin’. Read more on Maine GOP Chair: I See Black People…

Fox Nation: Did Obama Voter Fraud All Of Philadelphia?

In fifty-nine Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney received zero votes. Fifty-nine. Zero. Italics. Fox Nation posts this Philadelphia Inquirer article, leaving their commentariat to worry that maybe Obama totally vote-frauded the city, and Romney would have won if not for Obama’s grand scheme to totally eliminate Republicans from 3.5% of the total precincts in Philadelphia, a city he won with 85% of the vote.
