First, I should say I am not one of those who think Obama was
re-elected by vote fraud. His
margin was large enough that I do not think vote fraud that massive is feasible
in this country . . . yet.
But any vote fraud is reason for concern. Historically, it has been the difference
in several close elections. And I
shudder to think how divided this nation would be if a presidential election
were very close with suspicious election/counting activity to boot. I would make 2000 look like a picnic.
Election Day in Philadelphia is more than a little suspicious. Appointed GOP Poll Watchers were kicked
out of many wards (restored later by court order). Here is audio of one episode.
Not caring what the law says is an odd attitude for an
election judge to have. And the
results in these wards also happen to be odd, 9955 Obama to 55 Romney in one
Now, do I know election fraud occurred in these Philly
wards? No. But at the very least, election law was
willfully and systematically violated when GOP Poll Watchers were expelled. And actual vote fraud or no, the
conduct of the election and the results are an indictment of the political
culture of Philadelphia.
UPDATE: The youtube code kept messing with me. So I just changed it to a link. Sorry.
Also note that I am now just about certain of election
fraud in Philly and in Cleveland as well.
