VOTER FRAUD: Florida TV station documents ineligible voters as DoJ sues to prevent state from purging rolls.

But voter fraud is just a GOP myth

Drmocrats have the ability to live, when they are dead?

A zombie is not as lazy and shiftless as the morons that claim acquiring a free government issued photo ID is an unreasonable burden.

In someplaces the dead never miss an election and always vote yes on taxes and straight democrat.

Since none of you post any reference to your comments, then I'll assume your hypothesis is one of conjecture and innuendo.
Makes sense, since the statistics who that that's the case, anyhow....
Individual Voter Fraud Statistics
Believe it or not voter fraud rarely happens at an individual level. Although you may hear about the rampant problem of voter fraud in the united states. Take this statistic, in Ohio in 2004 the percentage of individuals accused of voter fraud was 0.00004%(about the amount of times Americans are struck by lightening every year).
So if individual voter fraud isn't a problem in the US, then why is the issue so focused on? The simple answer is that the groups that focus on individual voter fraud are trying to distract the American people or fire them up. If fingers are being pointed left and right and voter fraud is a big confusing issue it is that much easier for groups to commit voter fraud.
Out of the 197 million votes cast for federal candidates between 2002 and 2005, only 40 voters were indicted for voter fraud. Only 26 of those cases, or about .00000013 percent of the votes cast, resulted in convictions or guilty pleas.
Voter Fraud Statistics in US history:
In Missouri in 2000, for example, the Secretary of State claimed that 79 voters were registered with addresses at vacant lots, but subsequent investigation revealed that the lots in question actually housed valid and legitimate residences.
2004 election in Ohio revealed a voter fraud rate of 0.00004%.
2004 gubernatorial election in Washington State actually reveals just the opposite: though voter fraud does happen, it happens approximately 0.0009%
A 1995 investigation into votes allegedly cast in Baltimore by deceased voters and those with disenfranchising felony convictions revealed that the voters in question were both alive and felony-free.
Many of the inaccurate claims result from lists of voters compared to other lists - of deceased individuals, persons with felony convictions, voters in other states, etc.
In Florida in 2000, a list of purged voters later became notorious when it was discovered that the “matching” process captured eligible voters with names similar to - but decidedly different from - the names of persons with felony convictions, sometimes in other states entirely.
A 2005 attempt to identify supposed double voters in New Jersey mistakenly accused people with similar names but whose middle names or suffixes were clearly different, such as “J.T. Kearns, Jr.” and “J.T. Kearns, Sr.,” of being the same person. Even when names and birth dates match across lists, that does not mean there was voter fraud.

The real frauds are the Republicans:
Republican Voter Fraud
Why Republicans Focus on Voter Fraud in the US
We have all heard of Republican voter fraud, but why is Republican Voter Fraud hot issue? Republicans will tell you that individual voter fraud runs rampant in the US with millions fraudulent voters trying to cast their ballot for Democrats. The truth is the voter fraud statistics say it is essentially nonexistent at an individual level. Furthermore groups like ACORN have had almost no reported incidents of voter fraud, while they have help millions of voters cast their ballot.
If individual voter fraud isn't an issue then why does the GOP insist that it is. The answer is twofold:
1. People who have issues getting their vote cast do to mobility, identification, work schedules and economic standing are disproportionately voters who will vote for the Democratic party.
2. A basic manipulation tactic is to accuse your opponent of the exact thing that you are doing, so when you get accused of that thing yourself it doesn't seem that drastic.
Republican Voter Fraud History
Republicans know that when everyone votes they lose. In fact the less people who vote the higher chances they have of winning. The Republican party may not have the numbers, but they most certainly have the money. A large majority of money from Big Business is funneled to Republican candidates in order to ensure victory, which obviously gives them sway with our government. Given the hundreds of millions of dollars spent each year on the Republican party it is in the interest of many of Americas most powerful to ensure that the vote goes to the Republicans. Yet as mentioned before this can only be accomplished through a few means and one of the most important is the vote.
The Republican Election Strategy
The Republican election strategy is involves smearing the competition, accusing them of voter fraud and then using groups the disenfranchise voters.
How Republicans Disenfranchise Voters
Big Business funnels hundreds of millions of dollars to groups who's main purpose it is to seek out voter fraud in swing states. These groups scour the records to find "illegal" voters. These include dead voters, voters trying to vote twice and voters with fraudulent addresses. They claim 24 million illegal voters in the US, although the actual number is closer to zero.

People need to go back to the old days when people voted on election day. People too stupid or lazy to go to the polls should not vote.
#8 Mar 14, 2014
Yes, we're well aware of how much you right wingers pine for the good ole days of one day voting. I suppose you're also thinking it was better that only white male landowners would get to vote too. Should we also go back to dusty roads and covered wagons???

You have to be actively looking for fraud thru testing to find it, pinhead. Smart fraudsters typically hide their vote fraud, and their frauds remain undiscovered as a result. Your statistics reflect accidental discovery of the clumsy and stupid vote fraudsters, not the overwhelming hidden fraud. The dummies who claim there is no substantial fraud are a fraud themselves, by not revealing that their data is derived only from accidental discovery of fraud committed by the more brazen and stupid of fraudsters.
Get off your lazy stupid welfare-sucking arse and get a free government issued photo ID. Go tell your lazy and stupid like-minded buddies to do the same. You can use the free government issued ID to buy beer and cigarettes too.

I'm sure your quite outraged over the fact that your voting disenfranchisement techniques get overturned in courts left and right. We'll look at the current Ohio tactic by the racist SOS Husted as a bellwether for how the situation is developing. We'll really have a victory if we get Nina Turner elected. Time for me to mail out some campaign fliers......enjoy the show!!

Stopping vote fraud is not disenfranchisment, pinhead.
Every fraudulent vote negates the voting power of a bonafide US citizen.
You can't disenfranchise a voter that is not by law eligible to vote. That includes illegal aliens.
Pinheads like you promote vote fraud because fraud supports your degenerate national socialist diversity scheme.
PC buzzwords are stupid trash talk coming from your ilk.
You blab a lot here but consistently say nothing of substance, preferring deception as your slimey method of getting your way.
#16 Mar 16, 2014
I challenge you as the great PC pinhead to produce one verifiable instance of a legally eligible voter being denied their voting franchise in the US.
Your victories are a loss for decency.

bring your ID or you will be just watching.
Your fliers will be as useless as you not voting.
