Closing In On the Cheaters July 28, 2017

Posted by geoff in News.

From a post last January:

The actual magnitude of illegal voting is obviously subject to debate. But I’d rather talk about voter ID at the moment. I’ll attempt to sum up the controversy in a few lines:

Conservatives: We want voter ID because we think you guys are effing cheaters.

Liberals: There is no cheating and you just want voter ID because you’re racist and want to suppress the minority vote.

Conservatives: There’s no way to measure cheating without IDs. Look, we’ll spend the time and money to make sure that every legitimate voter has ID. Just humor us.

Liberals: No. Racists!!

At the end of the post I concluded with this line:

…they’re effing cheaters.

Referring, of course, to the liberal set that is opposed to voter IDs.

It’s becoming more and more evident that they are indeed effing cheaters:

The Government Accountability Institute … compared the (voting) lists using an “extremely conservative matching approach that sought only to identify two votes cast in the same legal name.” It found that 8,471 votes in 2016 were “highly likely” duplicates.

Extrapolating this to all 50 states would likely produce, with “high-confidence,” around 45,000 duplicate votes.

There’s no way to tell which party received those votes, but I’ll just remind everyone (unnecessarily, I’m sure) that there is one party that wants stricter controls on voting and one party that does not.

And that’s a very conservative way to measure, indeed. When one mentions illegal immigrants, the shrieks of ‘racism!’ get even louder. Tells you something.

Spend a few minutes watching a video of Catherine Englebrecht, (True the Vote). Any decent, logical person would be convinced. We worked together on Tea Party stuff some years back and still stay in touch. She’s down in Harris County in the Houston area.

Other Tea Party colleagues here in the Dallas area personally witnessed voter fraud on election days in the past…

But yeah, we’re the racists.

Right on, Cathy.
Our state issues drivers licenses to illegals. Supposedly they are ‘drive only’ licenses that cannot be used as ID.

However, in one older article I read, with one of Obama’s executive orders, those licenses could have led to a real driver’s license. And then, what? We’re supposed to believe people who have already brazenly broken the law in so many other ways, will refrain from stealing a vote from a citizen? Please.

We’re supposed to believe people who have already brazenly broken the law in so many other ways…

Who have broken the law and then demanded that we celebrate it and accommodate their needs.

Ahhh, and there’s the salt. Thanks geoff.

[…] This is why the right thinks that mail-in voting is just another opportunity for Democratic dirty tricks (see this old 2017 post “Closing in on the Cheaters“). […]
