Re: “Ron and the recount

Just because you post a link to an article on some tea bagger website about widespread "voter fraud" by ILLEGALS! (like only a handful of actual voter fraud cases have actually been prosecuted in the past 10 years, many by Republicans) doesn't mean that its true or accurate.

Oh, I'm a troll alright, but I guess I have my limits, like arguing with Neo-Confederates who openly espouse the murdering of public officials.
Stay classy, RickRon.

Re: “Ron and the recount

You have to scour numerous outlets to get a well rounded picture. We are now a country that has drawn up boundary lines for thought.

We did that the last time about 1860.....

Keep it civil.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Many military personnel voted overseas,...but their ballots were never counted.

Their report in 2010 found that fewer members voted and that many states were still not complying with the 45 day requirement for ballots, something they estimate left 65,000 military voters out in the cold.

“24 states participated in the report, which showed that of 300,000 plus absentee ballots requested by military personnel, less than a third were counted in the election,”

Re: “Ron and the recount

We had no problems voting overseas, always got our absentee ballots, etc. And we are from Florida originally, from the county that was thrown out during the first Bush election, so we are used to this, sadly. I guess I was just hoping AZ would be different, but in actuality my early ballot never even showed up in the mail this year.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Now this…
A federal lawsuit was filed Friday asserting that several hundred illegal aliens who opted out of jury duty have cast ballots in at least three different elections.-

Re: “Ron and the recount

This one was even worse :

So, why aren’t soldiers voting? In many cases they simply can’t, and they have their commander in chief, President Obama, to blame.

Hundreds of thousands of our uniformed personnel have been shut out of the process, and we can thank the Obama administration and even the Obama campaign for this tragedy. After poor turnout in 2008, Congress passed the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (Move) Act to ensure that all military are provided with the opportunity to vote. The act put standards in place, such as mailing absentee ballots no later than 45 days before an election and requiring installation voting assistance offices to be built at most military bases and posts.

The Pentagon has utterly failed to meet these standards.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Nice shot, Rat. The issue of the military ballots being lost, changed, coerced, etc. has been at large for some time now with the Demorats doing everything they can to impact negatively.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Kari, remember the election Al Gore thought he won?

But it was the drama taking place behind the scenes, in the darker recesses of American politics where Democrats do what they do best, that was most appalling to Republicans and to other fair-minded people. Realizing that military people normally vote heavily Republican, Democratic election law attorney, Mark Herron, distributed a five-page letter to the Gore organization and to Democratic organizations all across Florida, instructing them on the many ways that overseas military absentee ballots could be challenged. The letter was distributed on November 15 when Bush was still leading by a razor-thin margin of 300 votes.

As Herron indicated in his letter, State and Federal law provided for the counting of qualified overseas absentee ballots for up to ten days after the day of the election. However, he continued, “You are being asked to review these overseas absentee ballots to make a determination whether acceptance by the supervisor of elections and/or the county canvassing board is legal under Florida law. A challenge to these ballots must be made prior to the time that the ballot is removed from the mailing envelope…”

Re: “Ron and the recount

Kari, sorry to hear about your husband's dilemma. The city is primarily and has been for some time, been run by liberals from the mayor on down. The elections process has been suspect for some time now and efforts are being made to insure that the fraud and fairness are dealt with. It seems that it is and uphill battle but when you have over 250,000 illegals in or near it, that there are those who wish not to fix the problem. Thanks to members of the military, we still have free elections. Sort of.....

Re: “Ron and the recount

My husband's vote wasn't counted, because he registered too 'late' (He was deployed, his FL ID expired while he was gone, so he needed to get an AZ ID, and couldn't until he got home). No one ever told him it was 'too late' to register, and he was entered into the system of resident voters accordingly. He went to the right polling place, was on the list of voters expected, and did everything just how he should have, without a hiccup or red flag on voting day. Still, they didn't count his vote…. because ????
So basically, a member of the U.S. military got his vote thrown out because he was deployed at a time that was inconvenient for Arizona.
He has since signed a petition to get it counted, and hopefully they will act like they care about what the people of this city want. Military members bust their asses for this country and deserve to be treated fairly when it comes to electing the people who literally have a hand in their futures. We love Tucson and are happy to be active parts of the system, I am just disheartened that this is our first experience with it.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Yo' sissy boy PC, you are a joke! You call me racist (typical libtard response when you have no facts to back up your pathetic and sissified rhetoric)when you resort to making racist references ie; "Niggars and Commie Jews". Me thinks thou doth protest too much (and you are not even smart enough to hide your own diseased perceptions), bitch!
BTW, learn how to spell! Maybe you shouldn't have dropped out of 6th grade after all.

Re: “Ron and the recount

Yo, Mrs. "Ricky", your voter fraud accusations are bullshit. You're a racist asshat. You have no evidence other than feeling threatened by "American-Latino" political activists. If it were 1965, you'd be down in Alabama lynching the Niggars and Commie Jews for trying to register African American to votes.
