As the Big Red Wave continues to grow some odd coincides seem to be talking place:

In Arizona:

Here’s what the article doesn’t tell you, by a source in the Yuma County Recorder’s Office:

* These 3000 voter registration forms were all dropped off at once by the one group on the deadline to turn in voter registration forms.
* Almost all of the registrations were for the Democratic Party, a statistical improbability at best.
* Today, these same 3000 newly registered voters — as a group — had papers dropped off at the Yuma Recorder’s office requesting to be signed up for the permanent early voters list… which means the ballots will be mailed early, with no accountability.
* The Yuma Recorder’s office is checking the voter registration forms and have found that already more than 65% of them are invalid due to the registrant not being a citizen, wrong/invalid address, false signature, etc.

Well its not as Mi Familia is the same as the SEIU…oh wait:

Mi Familia Vota is one of two groups that reportedly registered thousands of new voters in and around Yuma last week.

Mi Familia Vota’s Arizona HQ address is 3707 N. 7th Street, Suite 100 in Phoenix

The address of SEIU Arizona is…um, 3707 N. 7th Street, Suite 100 in Phoenix.

Maybe it’s a really, really big suite?

Well it’s not as if this is happening in other states too, oh wait: Colorado:

A federal judge declined to force the secretary of state to reactivate approximately 6,000 new voters whose registrations were canceled under Colorado’s 20-day rule.

In a decision issued Monday, Senior U.S. District Judge John L. Kane denied a motion for a preliminary injunction that was requested by several labor and voting-rights groups.

When a new voter registers in Colorado, the secretary of state mails a nonforwardable notice of disposition that the voter’s registration has been received. If the notice comes back undeliverable in the mail, then clerks deem the voter’s registration inactive within 20 days.

Well I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that these registrations coudn’t verify an address, it’s not as if Democrats are using “walking around money” to get votes out or something…oh wait Pennsylvania: Philly to be precise

Rep. Robert Brady (D-PA), Chariman of the Philadelphia Democratic Party, was on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell this morning. He was explaining how the Philadelphia machine was working to ensure Joe Sestak’s victory in the closely watched Senate race in Pennsylvania. Ms Mitchell asked, “What is the secret here to turn out? In the old days, the old machine days, what we called ‘walking around money,’ handing out money to get people to vote. Is it still the case? What do you do, what is the magic in Philadelphia?”

Rep. Brady (who looks and sounds like he came right out of central casting for the part of shady, party boss) shockingly acknowledged that the cash-on-the-streets strategy is not an antiquity but still part of the Democratic Machine’s playbook in 2010: “We still have the street money and we’re very knowledgeable,” he said.

Well that a big city it’s not as if actual voting irregularities are taking place…oh wait Las Vegas:

Joyce Ferrara said when they went to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, her Democratic opponent, Sen. Harry Reid’s name was already checked.

Ferrara said she wasn’t alone in her voting experience. She said her husband and several others voting at the same time all had the same thing happen.

“Something’s not right,” Ferrara said. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five minute period of time — that’s wrong.”

Well we know Las Vegas is a wide open town it’s not like its going on in places like North Carolina or something

A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it and the Republicans came up and I voted.”

Paper Ballots anyone.

I’m absolutely positive that it is just a coincidence that all of these examples are democratic examples as they are in a dead panic over a tough election?

As Roxeanne DeLuca and Bob Belvadere reminded us about 3 weeks ago:

we don’t just need to mathematically get more votes than the Democrats; we need to win by enough so that they can’t steal elections from us.

Keep that in mind the moment you are tempted to slack off.

And he’s right about paper ballots, bulky stuff is hard to hide in an age where everyone has a camera, he also adds Dallas to the city list.

  1. […] Related: The headlines at Drudge, on possible incidences of voter fraud are not surprising, are they? I gathered when–in the face of disastrous poll numbers–David Axelrod said “stay up late…” because the Democrats would pull off a victory, that we’d be seeing questions at the polls. […]

  3. Paper ballots sound great until you remember that in Florida in 2000 the Dem poll workers were handing voters paper ballots (remember “hanging chads”?) already pre-marked with X’s next to names of Democrat candidates.

    Funny, though, that in Nevada all the shaky, elderly fingers lingering on the screen would up all accidentally cast a ballot for Democrat Reid and not Republican Angle. Shaky fingers only vote one way, I suppose.

    In N.C., maybe the machine votes what it wants to because it just needs calibration, as claimed. But how strange that uncalibrated voting machines only err-default to Democrat.

    Those touch screens are very sensitive. Just touching the box for a Republican can cause a straight-ticket Democrat vote. Where’s the DOJ? -er wait! Never mind.
