RALEIGH, N.C. — Republican politicians across the country have for years railed against the threat of voter fraud. Some have made unproven claims about how rampant it has become in order to pass voter ID laws and open sweeping investigations. The sanctity of the vote, they have said, must be protected at all costs.

But when a hard-fought congressional election in North Carolina — in which a Republican candidate appeared to narrowly beat his Democratic opponent — was overturned this week because of election fraud by a Republican political operative, the party was measured, and largely muted, in its response.

The state party chairman, Robin Hayes, issued a statement after officials ordered a new election calling the affair “a tremendously difficult situation for all involved.” National Republicans have been mostly mum. Cheeto-Faced Ferret-Wearing Shit Gibbon, who has made election fraud one of the hallmarks of his administration, was quiet on Twitter, although on Friday, facing reporters at the Oval Office, he condemned fraud — “all of it, and that includes North Carolina.”

Mark Harris, the Republican nominee, had eked out a 905-vote lead over Dan McCready. But the North Carolina Board of Elections refused to certify Mr. Harris as the winner and opened an investigation into irregularities. This week, the five-member board, made up of Republicans and Democrats, convened an evidentiary hearing in Raleigh at which witnesses described a voter-turnout effort that relied on the rogue collection of absentee ballots.

Oh, and whatever happened to that Trump commission on voter fraud?

A review of documents has shown White House claims to have unearthed “substantial evidence” of voter fraud were false, according to a junior member of Donald Trump’s short-lived commission on election integrity.

Matt Dunlap, the top elections official in Maine, said he had examined 1,800 commission documents that were denied to him while he served and that he had since obtained through a court order. He found nothing in them to substantiate the claims made by the commission’s vice-chair, Kris Kobach, and the White House when the commission was disbanded in January.

“The sections on evidence of voter fraud are glaringly empty,” Dunlap reported in an official letter to Kobach and the vice-president, Mike Pence, the commission chair. “After months of litigation that should not have been necessary, I can report that the statements by Vice Chair Kobach and the White House were, in fact, false.”

funny how you only become interested in election fraud when a republican gets caught. Voter id would sort a lot of this nonsense out in america and the UK.

All the evidence says the opposite. And so do the Republicans:

Yeah, it's funny how both sides shut up when it's one of their own.  

At least your title implies both sides do it.  That's the only way it will get better.

The main point is voter fraud is problem, but neither side seems to care as much when it's their side getting caught.  Now when the other side does it...........

That’s why it’s impossiboe to debate with people who have their feet firmly stuck in one camp. Their feet are stuck and their eyes are shut.
I find it weird.

Who wants to live in a camp and never venture outside?

I'm not dodging anything. Both sides do it and they bitch when the other side does it, and clam up when their side does it.  

I dont usually pick sides on these party debates.  They are both disappointing.

In this case the Republicans. And the Dems will make hay out of it. Next time it might be the Dems committing fraud and the Reps will do the same. 

Anytime anyone starts a thread about some transgression that one party does in equal amounts as the other, my response is to remind them of that.  

That's just me.  Sorry if that bothers you.

So you want to dodge the point of where voter fraud is, based off a view it may happen on the other side

wow

I am neither democrat or Republican, so to me the Republicans have to take action over this

Republicans are given over to what is called projection. It's part of the mirror-image thinking of the RW: deviousness predicates what you will do, and so you project the opposite will do the same.

The right sees the inevitable left-ward shift of politics in America. They also see an expanding Hispanic population in America, and know it will soon become the majority.

The RW has devised a two-pronged attack: 1) close the southern border by building a big wall; and 2) forestall things til that is done, by cheating minorities out of their vote. That's what the white nationalism is all about.

Eventually, the RW will have to give up democracy altogether. The majority will inevitably be people of color, and RW'ers figure that just wasn't what god intended.

Come in dude.  You are a journalist in Tarrant county.  

The Democrats have no need to do voter fraud. They are already on the winning side.

The Republican ethos is predicated on selfishness. Add to that, they are losing. Hispanics soon will be the majority over white Europeans.

It's the conservative white supremacists who want to do this. It's the conservative white supremacists who have to do this.

A Fort Worth woman recently indicted on voter fraud charges paid others involved in the scheme with funds provided by a former Tarrant County Democratic Party leader, court documents filed this week say.

After learning about a state investigation, Leticia Sanchez — one of four women arrested and indicted on voter fraud charges — allegedly directed her daughter to send a text message to others in the scheme, urging them not to cooperate with investigators, state officials say.

Meh...you can't generalize from specifics.  She probably was just trying to help, and didn't know it was against the law.

Not like Republicans.  For them this is a business.

A democratic party leader? 

Are you saying she was too dumb to know any better? 

Why dont you accept the fact that both parties will cheat to stay in power. And both of them have had members sent to prison? 

I mean after all it's the truth.

That is an allegation, what was the outcome?

Also this was not by the Democratic party officials.

Where as the other is by Republican officals

So any other links you can provide?

The trial hasn't happened yet. 


The point is, Ben should have been very familiar with this and not asked me to demonstrate a very local case of vote harvesting.  


Have there been any convictions in the cases Ben cited?

It's all disabused by stepping back and seeing the whole picture.  Democrats don't need to do voter fraud.  Polls show that the public is moving way to the left of Republicans, who are just old, white men.  And statistics show that Hispanics, who are already Democrats, are growing in number...and votes.  Why change anything when you're already winning?

How about you stop seeing people as a tribe, based on guilt by assoication?

Maddog is not even a Republican

So how do you even factor in your nonsense here?

How about you stop hating?

That would be a start

Nah. Anything you give them, they take and demand more. Appeasement is the path of snowflakes, as I think you Brits should know.

I sense that Democrats are all done being snowflakes. Even you, didge, say that Obama was too soft. Take pride in being right for once. It's a new era.

Nice slogans, didge. But you're not addressing the real problem, are you?

I said that one must kill the disease, before you heal the body. You want to leap over that part, and go directly to Pollyannaville.

Both sides commit fraud and both sides have people who have been removed and or jailed for corruption.  

Its Pollyannaish to suggest anything else.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — LOS Angeles County prosecutors have charged nine people with felonies alleging they offered money and cigarettes to homeless people on LA's Skid Row in exchange for false and forged signatures on ballot petitions and voter registration forms.
The office of District Attorney Jackie Lacey says in a statement Tuesday the alleged offenses occurred during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.
Five of the nine defendants were arraigned Tuesday in Superior Court.

There's a simple formula to follow in politics: If you're winning, don't do anything.
Democrats don't need voter fraud.

Voter fraud a strategy that was invented by southerners (Jim Crow laws) and Republicans have completely taken over the south and assumed it's legacy. Unfortunately, Republicans, with their backward-looking philosophy, are becoming a party of dying, old white men.

The American public is waaay to the left of Republicans, and Hispanics are only going to diminish their voting strength. Why would Democrats risk doing anything that would change the flow?

So, at least as of now, Republicans desperately need voter fraud. But the waters are flowing the direction that Democrats want. A Democrat says, "Just let it be..."
