Voter Fraud

Why voter fraud must be prevented

July 24, 2013

Outright voter fraud is very rare in Ohio. But it does happen, and we sometimes wonder whether Buckeye State residents understand the real danger in the practice....

"During sentencing, she was far from (contrite,) telling the court, "I'll fight for (President Barack Obama) and Mr. Obama's right to sit as president of the United States."

And I wonder if the republicans in congress were (remorseful) when they said they would do what ever it took to make sure "President Barack Obama" wasn't elected for a 2nd term?

Did you even read the article CL? Seriously, I wonder about the likes of you son. The topic of the editorial is voter fraud, something the left claims is non-existsant. Clearly, as this case proves, the left is wrong.

I am curious CL, you keep harping about the fact that Republicans stated they wanted to make Obama a 1 term President, to which I say, duh. What I wonder is, don't you think the goal of EVERY opposition party is to make a newly elected President a 1 term President!!! I mean, the way i see it, for someone to beliee that both parties doesn't have that agenda is clearly not an intelligent person!!!

Why keep harping on the obvious CL?

denver, so you think it is ok to break the law as long as the lawbreaker is supporting your guy?

Your other comment deals with politics and rightfully so the republicans tried to make sure Obama was a one term guy, in my opinion the most divisive and ineffective president of my time.

Why the mancrush on Mike Myers? When he writes an editorial he signs it with a link to his Wheeling paper. This is from the editorial staff of the PN&S. This is a factual item trying to bring the obvious to light. If you care so deeply for Mike Myers drive up to Wheeling and meet him.

There was a story of a New York State farmer who was so determined to get the rats out of his barn, that he burned the barn down to get rid of the rats. Whether or not such a farmer actually existed, a faction of the Democratic party (including Martin Van Buren) were called "Barnburners" around 1848.

For sure, both parties (today as always) have the goal of electing their candidates in the next election. The question is, how much are they willing to destroy in pursuit of that goal? If they stop all work on solving our problems for 4 years, & 4 more years, the damage is too great.

Mike Myers needs to enter an Obama 12 step program to rid is fixation on the fact that a black man is President of these United States. I am sure that the Parkersburg News would never print racist editorials.

Boehner and Republicans tried to work with the President on the spending cap increase. They had a hand shake deal for Boehner to raise taxes and the President to implement entitlement reform.

It was the President who didn’t honor his handshake and reneged on the deal by demanding Speaker Boehner increase taxes by 50%. The result was the President getting locked out of negotiations between Congressional Republican and Democratic leaders, who came to a deal to end the spending crisis. Not to be outdone, the President threatened veto the agreement if a little know provision called a ‘sequester’ wasn’t a part of the bill.

More recently, the President refused to implement Obamacare as it was signed into law because Democrats fear the unreasonable mandate will hurt them in the 2014 election. Instead of changing or repealing the mandate, the President once again went back on his word to benefit his agenda.

My point from below Neo is how can you work with a man who says one thing and then does something completely different? To me, if you cannot trust someone, you cannot work with them and like it or not, President Obama has shown time and again that he is not a trustworthy individual.

And that has nothing to do with the fact that he is a mixed race American.

Back to the op-ed piece, I can't help but note that those on the radical left like have said nothing about the fact that a clear and present case of voter fraud did indeed occur. That’s extremely odd given that whenever a voter identification law is proposed, all we hear is how unconstitutional such a law would be as it’s meant to do nothing more than to discourage voting among those who predominately support Democrats. We are then told time and again how such a law is not needed as there have been no documented cases of voter fraud. If nothing else, this op-ed has silenced the loons on that topic. I’ll have to mark it in my favorites for the next voter identification conversation.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

As for this Editorial being from the staff of the PN&S, Google: "Why Voter Fraud Must Be Prevented" and notice the date.

I wounder if Mike Myer and my little buddy would have been as upset if she had voted Romney? Which I'm sure if you looked hard enough, you could find one. Like the "ONE" that voted for President Obama.

Great catch on that editorial denver, I guess that means the fraud didn't really occur.

"RANDOM21" do you still think "This is from the editorial staff of the PN&S" ???

Whether this is from the editorial staff at Parkersburg, Wheeling or from the desk of the Myers, does it really matter? It's TRUE. Despite what the left would have us believe, voter fraud does in fact take place. This case is just one more piece of evidence.

Another instance is the fraud in Indiana that put Obama on the ballot to begin with. Were it not for outright fraud, he wouldn't have been on the primary ballot, Clinton would have won Indiana and who knows what would have happened.

Voter fraud occurs in every election and none to it better than West Virginia Democrats.

I take that back. Barrack Obama had to show is ID to vote and Chicago Democrats do it as well as WV Democrats so given the obstacle, maybe they do it better.

And not it’s time for the brainless brigade to tell us voter fraud isn’t real and we don’t need voter ID laws.

It mattered to "RANDOM21"!! And I wonder if voter ID laws would have stopped the "ONE" Cincinnati-area woman who had been a "POLL WORKER" from voting illegally, there little buddy.

If a poll worker is getting their own ballot, they are in violation of CURRENT law and its voter fraud.

Your attempted distortion of the facts does not change anything I stated. The loons on the radical left claim voter ID laws are not needed because voter fraud is non-existent. This is just one instance that proves otherwise.

You cannot change the facts denver, no matter how much you try.

What facts? The article states "A Cincinnati-area woman who had been a "poll worker" was sentenced to five years in prison earlier this month, "for voting illegally" on behalf of as many as eight other people."

How would your voter ID laws stopped that?
