Columnist: Vote fraud and its beneficiaries

Glenn Reynolds on Democrats' growing reliance on voter fraud to keep power: Many of America’s largest and worst-governed cities suffer from entrenched and corrupt political machines that maintain their position in no small part via voter fraud. Corrupt machines (like that of Detroit’s disgraced ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick) siphon off money that should go to essential services and instead divert it to political fatcats and their supporters. Efforts at reform are often defeated with fraudulent votes.

Real motives of Voter ID opponents exposed

Have you been following the debate over Pennsylvania's new Voter ID law? Democrats are challenging a common-sense law that requires a photo ID before casting a ballot, claiming it will prevent many Obama supporters from voting in November. The letter below was published in The West Chester Daily Local News and the writer does a great job of exposing Democrats' real reasons for blocking an attempt to prevent voter fraud.
Not really a surprise

    I don’t know how many of you recall Gordon Bennett’s letter in the Daily Local a few weeks ago (“Voter ID Law part of GOP strategy”) complaining about those mean Republicans in Harrisburg depriving “more than 700,000 Pennsylvania voters” of their right to vote, most of them who would “normally vote Democratic.” And I’m thinking (with a bit of mischief), “What is it about Democrats that they don’t know how to obtain proper ID like most people?”; and, were I Mr. Bennett, perhaps I’d be a bit reluctant to raise the question in a public forum.
    But then again, should we be surprised? For isn’t this in large part a constituency that has become so dependent on others for guidance and assistance that special laws and regulations and entitlements must be passed and instituted and fostered on the rest of us to accommodate them?
    Consequently, we are told that what is perfectly normal for the great majority of people ... obtaining photo ID ... is an “outrageous” suppression of their rights and a way to get Mitt Romney elected, and the governor’s office should be inundated with calls, express your outrage, blah, blah, blah. My goodness, such indignation!
    In his shoes, seems to me I’d rally the party faithful and get these people down to the local county Democrat committee, or get some form out to them, sign ‘em up! How long have these people NOT had identification? Just a few days, or maybe ... a few YEARS!? How about a little less whining and showing some initiative? This sounds a little like New Orleans and Katrina, if you ask me, where people sat around waiting for help (unlike the victims of Mississippi flooding in the Midwest), rather than looking out for themselves which, if you’ll pardon the obvious, is pretty much what one of the major themes of this election is all about too.

Constitution Party abandons bid for Pa. ballot

Sorry folks, but the Constitution Party will not be offering a presidential ticket to Pennsylvania voters on Nov. 6 because it cannot gather enough signatures to make the ballot.

Third-party candidates needed to gather at least 20,601 signatures — 2 percent of the total ballots cast for the highest vote-getter in last year’s statewide elections — to qualify for this year’s statewide ballot, according to the Associated Press.

Former Obama ally to speak at GOP convention

Former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis, who was the first member of Congress not from Illinois to endorse President Obama in 2008, will be a featured speaker at the Republican National Convention and will presumably endorse Mitt Romney for President.

A former co-chairman of the 2008 Obama campaign, Davis, then a Democrat, seconded the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Davis, who is disappointed with the Obama presidency and radical policies, recently announced he is joining the Republican Party and supporting Mitt Romney.

"The perspectives and ideas (Davis and other headliner speakers) bring to the convention stage will show all Americans that Romney and Ryan are the ticket to a better future," GOP Chairman Reince Priebus said. "Former Congressman Davis especially will give voice to the frustration and disappointment felt among those who supported President Obama in 2008 and are now hungry for a new direction."

Poll: Romney cuts into Obama lead in Pa.

A new poll of Pennsylvania voters finds President's Obama once double-digit lead over GOP challenger Mitt Romney dropping significantly as Election Day nears. (Obama won Pennsylvania by 10 points in 2008). Among the highlights of the  August 2012 Franklin & Marshall College Poll:

The August 2012 Franklin and Marshall College Poll finds President Obama with a 6 point lead over Mitt Romney, 44% to 38%. Obama is viewed favorably by 46% of voters to 32
% for Romney.

More highlights:

1.     President Obama leads Mitt Romney, 44% to 38% with 15% undecided; when voters who lean to a candidate are included a similar advantage shows for the president, 47% to 42%, leaving 7% of voters truly undecided.
2.     Bob Casey leads Tom Smith, 35% to 23% with 39% undecided, in the U.S. Senate race; when voters who lean to a candidate are included, Casey's lead increases 43% to 28%, but a high proportion still remain undecided (24%).
3.     Compared to Romney, Obama is seen as better understanding of the concerns of ordinary Americans, 57% to 30%, better able to handle foreign policy issues, 53% to 34%, better able to handle the job as military chief, 47% to 37%, and closest to respondents' views on abortion and gay marriage, 47% to 37%. Romney now leads as the candidate most prepared to fix our economic problems (44% to 42%) compared to June (38% to 44%).
4.     Obama's job performance remains more negative than positive, with 43% positive (good or excellent job) and 56% negative (fair or poor job).
5.     PA Voters favor repealing the heath care law 48% (strongly or somewhat favor) to 42% (strongly or somewhat oppose).
6.     Almost six in ten Pennsylvania voters believe the state is moving in the wrong direction, 57%, while 30% say it is moving in the right direction.

 This survey reflects interviews with 681 Pennsylvania voters, conducted by the Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College from August 7-August 12, 2012 (sample error of +/- 3.8 percentage points).

Why judge refused to block Pennsylvania voter ID law

Commonwealth Court Judge Robert Simpson, in upholding Pennsylvania's new voter ID law: "The photo ID requirement … is a reasonable, non-discriminatory, non-severe burden when viewed in the broader context of the widespread use of photo ID in daily life," he wrote. "The Commonwealth’s asserted interest in protecting public confidence in elections is a relevant and legitimate state interest sufficiently weighty to justify the burden."
