Reminiscent of a Dem election fraud scheme in US PA#8, they tried it again. This time in Illinois. I'm sure none of you are surprised, after all this is the home of our "Thief-in-Chief," "ACORN-Organizer-in-Chief," Rahm, Blago and all the untold numbers of Dem Dirty Denizens. The video below tells the story:
This is the first year any Illinois resident can cast their ballot by mail, no excuses necessary. But the deadline for getting those ballots returned narrowed significantly and hundreds of thousands of registered voters risked being disenfranchised, one of those being Chicagoan Rosia Carter. By the time her ballot was received in the mail her concern was it would not be counted because of time constraints.
"By the time I filled it out and sent it in, my vote would not get counted," Carter said.
Take a look at the 1.00 mark on the video. What is the return address for the ballot to be mailed? NOT the Board of Elections, but the Democratic Party of Illinois, P.O. Box A3952, Chicago Illinois, 60690-9910. Surprise!! I suppose we should give these Dem attempted-crooks some credit because they at least didn't put in a fake letter from a fake organization like the Dems in PA#8, Bucks County did.
Carter cited more outrage when she called the Illinois Democratic Coordinated Campaign (IDCC) and was told the job had been "farmed out" to a third party and also her birthdate on the ballot was incorrect. Also, many of the ballots received by the Lake County Board of Elections from the IDCC should have gone to Will County.
When asked by ABCNews 7 in Chicago why the IDCC had the ballots sent to their own P.O. box instead of the Board of Elections they responded:
because they "are better able to track the process and make sure there are fewer problems."
Right, Dems. Do I hear another chance for ballot manipulation here? For anyone caring to read the Dems full response it is here, bottom of the page. However I don't believe a word of it. And as expected, this whole situation created a huge fiasco for not only voters but the county Board of Elections who were deluged at the last minute with hundreds of thousands of ballots. The reporter tells us this "has the potential of becoming Illinois' version of the 'hanging chad.'"
And who helped the Dems with their "vote by mail" scheme effort? None other than Dem Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, who "believes" most of the ballots will be counted on time.
And who exactly is the Chair of the Illinois Dems? Illinois Speaker of the House Mike Madigan, who represents Illinois House #22. Madigan ran again this time, and it was speculated in a recent diary by Moe Lane the Illinois GOP had a "phantom" candidate by the name of Patrick John Ryan running against Madigan, however the Illinois Board of Elections confirms on this document, page 23, Ryan indeed was a candidate against him. I don't know about others, but this diarist holds accountable the ultimate responsibility of incidents, both good and bad, to the chairs, chiefs and thieves-in-chief so in this case it would be Madigan.
Even though Illinois election results will not be certified and available on-line until Dec. 3, the Chicago Tribune tells us Madigan did retain his seat.
And hailing from Illinois I'm sure Madigan has and has had plenty of experience and teachers in deceit and scheming. Although blogs, pundits and news sources tell us Madigan never "got along" with Blago a picture is always worth a thousand words:
And in the midst of all this mess one progressive organization in Illinois has the unmitigated nerve to complain US Illinois Senate candidate Mark Kirk was deploying attorneys to key precincts to be on the look-out for voter fraud. The Illinois GOP was so alarmed about Illinois being "Ground Zero" for voter fraud they issued this statement.
And one more little tidbit to chew on. Guess who shows up at one of the polling places illegally, electioneering on behalf of the Dems? None other than Michelle O.
“First lady Michelle Obama appears to have violated Illinois law — when she engaged in political discussion at a polling place!
The drama began after Mrs. Obama stopped off at the Martin Luther King Center on the south side of Chicago to cast an early vote…
After finishing at the machine, Obama went back to the desk and handed in her voting key.
She let voters including electrician Dennis Campbell, 56, take some photos.
‘She was telling me how important it was to vote to keep her husband’s agenda going,’ Campbell said.
According to a pool reporter from the CHICAGO SUN-TIMES at the scene, the conversation took place INSIDE the voting center, not far from the booths.
Illinois state law — Sec. 17-29 (a) — states: “No judge of election, pollwatcher, or other person shall, at any primary or election, do any electioneering or soliciting of votes or engage in any political discussion within any polling place [or] within 100 feet of any polling place.”
Yes, FLOTUS. Should have gotten written up like Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee did in Houston. A member of Congress and an occupier of the Oval Office should not be above the law.
Yea, FLOTUS. A Harvard-educated lawyer doesn't know "electioneering" is illegal. But not to worry, Gibbs the Fibbs defended her:
‘I don’t think it would be much to imagine, the First Lady might support her husband’s agenda,’ Gibbs smiled.
Chicago and Illinois politics at its finest. I'm sure this stuff is just the tip of the iceberg. If this is what we know, can you imagine what we don't know?
