I would have thought

With all the concern about voter fraud from all the conservatives here, there would be a discussion of NC by now. I wonder why that hasn't happened.

'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Voter fraud can only be committed by illegal aliens, Democrats, and other low-iq types.

    I had to google because I didn't even know what you were referring too. Yeah, that's totally f'd up. I'm disappointed he won't face real punishment.

    I'd be all in favor of stronger voter laws, like needing ID, even if it meant not being able to vote absentee. I do that for convenience but would be totally fine having to do it in person.

    So I assume you are pointing this out to show that your side is now in favor of making stronger voting protection lwas/efforts. Good glad to see you making the step in the right direction.

    How is it you were unaware of this? Could it be your media sources are biased?

    Did you notice that the only thing this proves is that voter id would have no impact on this? Did you further notice that it also proves the only motivations of Republicans is to prevent people from voting (edited by fishtx cause I assume you did not mean video).

    Please tell me which media sources I use. I’d really love to know which ones I must be looking at

    As for motivation you can’t even get that right. If the goal was denying a vote as you state wouldn’t they just toss ballot in trash. Clearly goal was to get positive votes in there column.

    Which as I stated is BS and wrong. Accept or don’t. Up to you.

    They did toss the ballots in the trash.

    https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-news-north-carolina-new-election-ninth-district-mark-harris-20190221-story.html

    Try looking at news sources that don't feature articles on celebrity boobies.

    At the same time they were tossing those ballots in NC they were throwing people off voting roles illegally in Georgia.

    Voter fraud in the context of needing voter ID is all-but nonexistent except in the fervid mind of The Donald.

    Because what happened in NC is election fraud not voter fraud.

    In the new election some of those three million illegal aliens whom Trump says voted against him probably will take a day trip to North Carolina to elect the Democrat.

    I would think this to be considerably worse in that voter fraud is the act of a single individual whereas this is the concerted actions of a group to skew the results of an election. Very few few fraudulent voters would put their heads together and say, "Hey, let's all go vote illegally in order to get John Q. Ablinalp thrown out of office.

    Voter fraud is about as common as a unicorn.

    Those people's votes shouldn't count.

    BTW is he any relation to Albert Ablinalp?

    Actually, I was thinking of one of Richard Nixon's old buddies. He invented the spray-can nozzle and could buy most second-world countries twice-over.

    Bebe Rebozo?

    Another hanger-on, not Rebozo. Another of the Florida crowd. I think Rebozo was or wanted to be a big shot in the Cuban community. I'm searching long-shut memory banks, but I believe his name was Robert Ablinalp.

  • magallowaymagalloway Senior Member Posts: 1,025 Senior Member

    I got the spelling wrong--Robert Abpinalp, died 2003.

    So you are in favor of banning ballot harvesting in California and the rest of the nation yes ?

    We don't want this type of stuff that happened in NC to happen elsewhere yes?

  • fishingcomicfishingcomic Senior Member Posts: 23,880 Senior Member

    I am in favor of outlawing throwing ballots in the trash. Are you?
