Ohio Vote Fraud Likely 'On Massive Scale' And Pro-Obama Courtesy of Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner

Topics: Political News and commentaries

Via Soren Dayton at The Next Right:

[...] Early voting is taking place in Ohio. Through the end of the week, people can register and vote on the same day. The Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner argues that they are merely "casting their ballot" rather than "voting" so the fact that Ohio statute requires 30 days between registering and voting would not interfere.

So here is what is happening today. People are showing up to register and vote. There is no affirmative evidence that these people have not registered or voted somewhere else. There is no control. Normally in an election, partisan election monitors are allowed into polling places so that they can police each other. But not in two counties, Franklin and Montgomery, in Ohio. Brunner also issued an advisory opinion to counties saying that they are not required to allow election monitors.

Here you can see an election observer be turned away.

This video, also via The Next Right, shows interviews with people who are voting in Franklin County, where Republican election monitors are not being allowed into polling places - you almost can't believe what you're hearing but there's no question who these people (some who were literally pulled off the street) are voting for.

And did you catch the guy in the video talking about registering and not knowing where the voter will be next week?

It's a perfect opportunity for them to come in, register at a temporary address like a homeless shelter or a YMCA or something like that. They can register at that address because they don't know where they're going to be tomorrow or next week."
Here's Lou Dobbs on the massive voter fraud in Ohio due to the new rule allowing Ohio voters to register and vote at the same time.

Nothing to see here folks, just move along. These fine people in the second video are simply following the lead of their "master," who cut his political teeth in the Chicago political machine mentality. They are just voting early and voting often. It's the Chicago way - transplanted to Ohio.

Voter Registration -- OHIO STYLE....

Today I was on an errand, and happened through Northern Lights Shopping Center off of North Cleveland Avenue in Columbus.

Today, October 6th, was the last day to register to vote in this year's General Election.

Two of the Center's major tenants are a Thrift store and a Liquor store, and being the first Monday of the month, there was quite the little steady stream of people heading into the "Likker Sto'" for their noon bag and lotto tics.

As I drove through the lot near the Liquor and Thrift stores in the Center, I noticed two cars at the curb and three people, volunteers of some sort, waylaying the people on the sidewalk in front of the liquor store and approaching cars that were driving past. They had clipboards, and were conducting what appeared to be a shuttle service, carting "prospective voters" to the registration and early absentee voting.

I noticed they were approaching every car that came near, so I drove around the lot and then coasted by really slow, my window rolled down and looking "interested". No luck. I did it again. Still no luck.

Then I noticed a couple of guys across the lot -- they had cameras and appeared to be documenting the scene.

Now, it's not against the law to talk to people outside of liquor stores -- AT 12:00 NOON on a MONDAY; but if you're looking for a certain type of prospective voter, then you're outside of a liquor store in a certain part of town at 12 Noon on a Monday. Right?

Right.

I'm a-bettin' they weren't Republican volunteers. Know what I mean?

Unquestionably, I definitely get your drift. Voter fraud is going to be rampant this year - Chicago style!!!

KAREN: PLEASE!!!!

Was there outright voter fraud? Please, what you saw was an attempt at VOTER FRAUD that the then Secretary of State Ken Blackwell stopped. There were no buses from out of state hauling in people to register and vote, there was no one paying people in cigarettes or McDonalds to vote, and there was no one certainly registering 72 times as a Republican to vote.

As a registered Democrat, I am offended by these people coming into my state and disrupting our voting. In my opinion, EVERYONE involved in this FRAUD needs PROSECUTED to the fullest. Hopefully they do not fear whether it is "PC" or not to go after these FRAUD's that are messing up our election in Ohio.

You can keep your itinerant goons at home. You do not frighten us any more.

Anyone opposed to allowing these young citizens from voting in Ohio are clearly racist. People should be allowed to vote in whatever swing states they want. If we have close elections then people just get upset so with this "intent voting" young people can come in by carpool, and can register to vote and cast their valuable Ohio citizen "intent vote" and we won't have to worry about any more close elections or old people getting upset over who wins or not. And the really good thing is that if they decide the next day not to live in Ohio, they can go home and vote again and make up for the large number of people who do not vote anyway. So what's the big deal. Besides it is patriotic to vote and pay higher taxes so the more tax you pay an the more times you vote the more patriotic you are. Young people don't pay taxes but thanks to Ohio they have the patriotic opportunity to vote often because they are able to out fox older voters who are too old to vote.

If you regsiter to vote and then vote on the same day, how informed can you possibly be on pertinent issues? What good is your vote if you don't even have a clue as to what you are voting for? It is utterly ridiculous that people with absolutely no informed opinion should be allowed to have such an impact on a very serious matter. Voting is a constitutionally protected right and therefore a decision should be cast by the United States Supreme Court, not a directive by the Democratic Secretary of State in Ohio.

WOW!! Ohio you make Chicago politics look clean.

Brunner and Stickland are slugs.
