Alabama Secretary Chapman Says Voter Fraud Reports Continue Updated at 6:15 AM
August 5, 2008
Secretary of State Beth Chapman says just two months after the June primary election and 65 business days prior to the November presidential general election, new allegations of voter fraud continue on a weekly basis. More than ten new complaints have come in during the past two weeks alone.
Chapman says that the website, www.stopvoterfraudnow.com, and toll-free number, 1-800-274-VOTE have been instrumental in receiving the allegations.
"Voter Fraud is one big business in Alabama that needs to be shut down," Chapman said. "Dead people can not vote, and those living over the age of 18 who are Alabama citizens and citizens of the United States of America should only vote onceĒ she continued. Chapman says she will do everything within her power to "ensure that fair and honest elections prevail."
Absentee voting and selling votes appear to be the biggest conduits for recent voter fraud allegations.
In May, a local citizens group gathered affidavits detailing several cases in which at least one Democratic county official paid citizens for their votes, or encouraged them to vote multiple times.

No, it won't go far, because they say that voter fraud isn't a problem.....only election fraud-which of course the Republicans excel at-according to them.

1. Voter fraud is not near the problem as Election Fraud is.

5. Agreed this is the Repugs' tact. Most troubling is the abuse of absentee ballots.

In some parts of the South, it is known that workers vote absentee under duress. Their employers insist they (employees) bring their ballots to work so that they know how their employees are voting.
The Justice Dept. was present this year in Alabama and parts Mississippi because of their histories of notorious election fraud.
The other counties were widely reported recently in several news stories.
Of course they are downplaying this.
The charges stem from an investigation by Kingís office into absentee voting fraud in Greensboro. The investigation includes the election of Tinkerís ex-husband, state Sen. Bobby Singleton, D-Greensboro, in 2004.

If I had the slightest suspicion that someone was going to try and keep me from voting, I would make absolutely sure that my registration was correct and I knew where I was to vote and what I needed.
I rarely hear of a DUer that works at the polls.
Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
