The Left`s Voter Fraud Whitewash
Denial isn`t just a river in Egypt.
Democrats` coping mechanism for midterm election
voter fraud. Faced with multiple reports of early voting
irregularities and election shenanigans across the
country, left-wing groups are playing dumb, deaf and
blind. Voter fraud? What voter fraud?
More cunningly, these
organizations are seeking to
marginalize complaints about
election integrity by casting citizen watchdog
efforts as racist
"scare tactics." Echoing President Obama`s message
to the Democratic faithful on the campaign trail, they
are accusing political opponents of suppressing the
votes of minorities and the poor. On Tuesday, the
New York Times
quoted a liberal voting rights advocate,
Wendy R. Weiser, wringing her hands over individual
clean elections seriously:
to police the polls create a real risk of vote
suppression, regardless of their intent," said
Weiser, [Email her]
director of the Voting Rights and Elections Project at
Center for Justice at New York University.

know that any form of discrimination, intimidation or
challenge to voters without adequate basis is
illegal or improper."[Tea
Party Vow to Deter Voter Fraud Is Called Scare Tactic,

Weiser also turned up in a very
similar story minimizing voter fraud and voter
registration fraud that was published Tuesday by
government-sponsored National Public Radio.

In Harris County, Texas, the voter
registrar admitted that 20 percent of voter registration
forms submitted by liberal activist Houston Votes had
problems. Election whistleblowers there are now being
investigated by the Obama Justice Department and have
been slapped with an ethics complaint by the Texas
Democratic Party and a left-wing billionaire George
Soros-funded group called
Texans for Public Justice.
In Yuma County, Ariz., election
officials denied any fraud associated with thousands of
"permanent early voter list" status submitted en
masse by open-borders group
Mi Familia Vota
(a social justice satellite group of the
Service Employees International Union). But election

fielded by the Yuma County Recorder`s Office

Arizona law, either due to the fact the request was a duplicate or the requestor was
eligible to vote

Liberals shrugged their shoulders
at reports of illegal alien canvassers
trolling for votes in Washington State.

Funny. For the past two years,
Democratic leaders have had nothing to say about the
Black Panther Party goons who took it upon
themselves to police a Philadelphia voting booth in 2008
wielding billy clubs and shouting anti-white slurs to
suppress votes. Now, they`re treating citizen election
monitors as if they are the jack-booted thugs.
When I lauded
efforts like the Minnesota Majority, which is
training volunteers to watch polls and report on voter
fraud, liberal critics accused me this week of
Silence dissent. Criminalize
watchdogs. Whitewash fraud. Discourage grassroots
engagement. Deny, deny, deny. These are the signature
tactics of the left in the age of Obama.
On November 2, Americans get their
chance to say: Enough.
