Voter fraud in Colorado

A new undercover video reveals numerous Colorado Democratic operatives eager and willing to take advantage of the state’s new Democratically written and passed mail-in voter law to encourage voter fraud.

The law is so leaky that almost anyone can commit voter fraud, voting multiple times.

Colorado secretary of state Scott Gessler, along with several county election clerks, have raised warning flags that a new state law that automatically mails a ballot to everyone is an engraved invitation to commit fraud. “Sending ballots to people who did not even ask for them or have moved out of state is asking for trouble” he told me. For example, little can stop someone who collects discarded ballots from trash cans, fills out the ballots, and mails them in. Election workers are supposed to compare signatures on registration records with signed ballots. But if a person has a “witness” who signs the ballot on the witness line, then the signatures do not have to match and the vote is counted. … Gessler had futile arguments with Democratic state legislators last year who insisted on ramming a bill through that mandated Colorado become the only state in the nation with both all-mail balloting and same-day registration.

The new video shows numerous Democrat and liberal activists thrilled with the idea of using the law to vote multiple times for their candidates.

Pioneer cover

From the press release: From the moment he is handed a possibility of making the first alien contact, Saunders Maxwell decides he will do it, even if doing so takes him through hell and back.

Unfortunately, that is exactly where that journey takes him.

The vision that Zimmerman paints of vibrant human colonies on the Moon, Mars, the asteroids, and beyond, indomitably fighting the harsh lifeless environment of space to build new societies, captures perfectly the emerging space race we see today.

He also captures in Pioneer the heart of the human spirit, willing to push forward no matter the odds, no matter the cost. It is that spirit that will make the exploration of the heavens possible, forever, into the never-ending future.

    Please consider the Democrat party as De facto modern day slave owners. When a particular group of people can be so reliably counted on to cast their vote for only one political party, that political party essentially owns those people. And when that political party fully understands their position with that particular group of people, that represents power, and we all know the hard and fast rule about power.

    How sad, insulting and disrespectful to that group of people who allow themselves, 1. to be held captive and dependent and 2. ………There is no 2!

    This report dovetails with Michele Malkin’s struggle to have “Rocky Mountain Heist,” a film she collaborated on with Citizens United, shown in public It’s an expose’ of the underhanded tactics of four wealthy progressives who have worked together to take over virtual control of Colorado’s government. They went to court in an attempt to suppress release of the film, but lost their case just a day or two ago.

    Colorado seems to have turned into a snake pit in the last few years.

    Voter fraud was known way back when. It was part of the plot of “The Great McGinty” in 1940, in which homeless men (bums) were paid $2 for every voting “ticket” they brought back. A man at each voting place would tell the bum what name he was to use in order to vote. Even in 1940, they had figured out how the dead could keep voting.

    The desire for voter fraud is the same, the tactics are becoming easier to implement, therefore more common. You don’t even have to bus around a bunch of people to multiple polling places anymore.
