View Full Version : Gingrich commits thousands of voter frauds in VA?

According to Fox News/GOP standards, that is. (http://www.bradblog.com/?p=9019)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">If the same standards are applied to Newt Gingrich as have, for years, been applied to the now-defunct ACORN organization by both Republicans and their media arm, Fox "News", then it seems Newt Gingrich's campaign has committed thousands of acts of voter fraud.

As CNN and TPM are reporting right now:
Newt Gingrich, who failed to make it onto the ballot in Virginia, is alleging that fraud on the part of one of the signature collectors is to blame, reports CNN: “It was just a mistake. We hired somebody who turned in false signatures. We turned in 11,100 — we needed 10,000 — 1,500 of them were by one guy who frankly committed fraud,“ Gingrich said to a woman in Algona, Iowa.

Of course, there is no evidence that any vote has ever been fraudulently cast in any election in any state at any time via an improper registration by an ACORN worker. Moreover, virtually every fraudulent registration that came in via an ACORN worker was discovered and reported by ACORN themselves to authorities, since the group had imposed stringent practices to keep workers from defrauding them, which was the case in the few instances where it happened.

Nonetheless, that never stopped the liars and opportunists in the Republican/Fox "News" Party from using such instances to falsely assert that ACORN was committing massive voter fraud.

By those standards then --- and here, the Gingrich campaign didn't even bother to authenticate the signatures, apparently, as ACORN did --- the Gingrich campaign is the first out of the block to commit massive voter fraud in the 2012 election. </div></div>

I seen this a month ago. I was waiting for the anti-ACORN/voter fraud crowd to mention it....some chance. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

The GOP is a joke. After all their sabre rattling about voter fraud and the need for voter ID, their very first primary was a total farce! Check this out.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">© 2012, Des Moines Register and Tribune Co.

THE RESULTS: <u>Santorum finished ahead by 34 votes</u><span style="color: #CC0000"> Wow! Santorum WON!</span>

MISSING DATA: <span style='font-size: 14pt'>8 precincts’ numbers will <u>never be certified</u></span> <span style="color: #990000">Oops.</span>

PARTY VERDICT: GOP official says, <span style='font-size: 17pt'>‘It’s a split decision’</span> <span style="color: #990000"> ..LMFAO</span>

Rick Santorum – Final total: 29,839 Change: -168
Mitt Romney – Final total: 29,805 Change: -210

It’s a tie for the ages.

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>There are too many holes in the certified totals from the Iowa caucuses to know for certain who won,</span> but Rick Santorum wound up with a 34-vote advantage.

Results from eight precincts are missing — any of which could hold an advantage for Mitt Romney — and will never be recovered and certified, Republican Party of Iowa officials told The Des Moines Register on Wednesday.

GOP officials discovered inaccuracies in 131 precincts, although not all the changes affected the two leaders. Changes in one precinct alone shifted the vote by 50 — a margin greater than the certified tally.

The certified numbers: 29,839 for Santorum and 29,805 for Romney. The turnout: 121,503. </div></div>

Incredible. The level of incompetence is absolutely amazing. They had their OWN election,they don't even know who won and they want to run the country?


Either the GOP comes clean and admits they were wrong about ACORN or Newt is guilty of voter fraud. You can't have it both ways.

Can't wait for the other side of the board to condemn this charlatan.

So you guys are hating on Newt for manning up to what happened ... while living in complete denial about what happened with ACORN?

Sadly, this comes as no surprise.

Sadly, once again you lack much comprehension.

We don't think this candidate here and now, or ACORN then, committed fraud, and for the same consistent reason in both cases. The workers were hired and to be paid on obtaining VALID voter registration information, not to make them up.

However, you apparently continue to think ACORN did commit such fraud, and if that is the case, then YOU ought to apply a consistent standard to Newt, thinking him equally guilty.

I think you understand this perfectly, but would rather turn in around in Alinsky fashion as if you did not.
