This is an unsurprising development in the southern Arizona congressional races—CD7 (McClung V Grijalva) and CD8 (Giffords V Kelly).
I realize this may not qualify as original research, but I wanted to make sure people knew about this.
The Yuma Sun is reporting that two organizations — Mi Familia Vota and One Vote Arizona — submitted more than 3000 voter registrations in Yuma County, and more than 20,000 voters statewide. Even more, they have signed up 43,000 people statewide for the permanent early voter list.
What they didn’t tell you is that voter fraud on a massive scale could be taking place, ostensibly to help Raul Grijalva keep the congressional seat he holds by stealing the election.
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.
Now, the question is: is voter fraud taking place in Yuma County… and is it taking place on an even bigger scale in Pima County?
Yuma County is entirely within Grijalva’s district; Pima County covers both Grijalva and Giffords’ districts.
There’s been little reporting on this in the Tucson media. (A very Democrat-friendly media, btw). But, it did just break over the weekend.
A rumor I’m hearing is that reporters at the Tucson CBS affiliate, KGUN9, want to follow this story…but their editors are resisting. Coinky-dink? I doubt it.
“Three Sonorans,” a progressive blogger at TucsonCitizen.com has responded by claiming that Arizona Hispanics are so mad at SB1070 and its supporters that they’re voting monolithically Democrat this year. THAT explains why virtually ALL of 3000+ voter registration applications, collected by a “non-partisan” voter outreach group, are for the Democrats. Not Republicans, not Independents…Democrats. Yet another coinky-dink.
I’m hoping that someone can follow this story as it breaks. The concern among southern Arizona conservatives is that the local media will starve this story of oxygen…at least until Wednesday 3 November.
