Ballot Harvesting in California
« on: December 03, 2018, 10:55:24 PM »
Also known as voter fraud, but codified to make it easier for Dems to cheat.

Paul Ryan expressed his surprise, and the term “ballot harvesting” that most people likely had not heard before. The Daily Caller reports on Ryan’s reaction:
Quote
“California just defies logic to me,” said Ryan at a Washington Post live event. “We were only down 26 seats the night of the election, and three weeks later, we lost basically every California contested race. This election system they have — I can’t begin to understand what ‘ballot harvesting’ is.”
Bre Payton at The Federalist explained what ballot harvesting is, and how it is one of many features that leaves California open to voter fraud:
Quote
2. ‘Ballot Harvesting’ allows political operatives to drop off other people’s ballots.
new state law allows third parties to pick up ballots and drop them off at polling locations on behalf of that person, a practice known as “ballot harvesting.”
In video footage that surfaced last month, a woman who identifies herself to a California resident as Lulu is seen knocking on someone’s door and offering to deliver their absentee ballot, but “only to, like, people who are supporting the Democratic Party.”

The practice explains several mysteries about the 2018 election, such as: why mail-in ballots caused massive shifts toward Democrats in races Republicans thought they won on Election Night; why Republicans won the turnout battle in the primary, but lost it in the general election; and why Democrats with party backing defeated fellow Democrats without it — even when the latter had more money.

“Ballot harvesting” by Democratic Party operatives — a surprise tactic they likely saved for the general election — appears to have made the difference. The San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday that Democrats ran a disciplined, door-to-door campaign offering to deliver voters’ ballots to the polls:

Quote
…. “We beat Republicans on the ground, fair and square,” said Katie Merrill, a Democratic consultant deeply involved in November campaigns. “Many of the field plans included (ballot harvesting) as an option to deliver voters or their ballots” to the polls.
Republicans, in contrast, simply focused on traditional turnout operations — and lost badly….

Yep.
Legal? Yep.
Fair? Nope.

But the ends justifies the means for these people.

If there was a major earthquake in California that caused it to abruptly sink into the ocean, what would America lose? Some great Americans but mostly millions of America hating liberal lunatics and illegals. As I’ve said before, liberals are an enemy of the state. They undermine the US Constitution at all cost and spit on the principles of our founders. They are a cancer to the future of America.

Perhaps we instill laws that you have to do one of the following:

1 - Show ID and vote in person
2 - Vote absentee, but go to the local electoral office / court house, where your ID is checked and they then verify your vote and ID.
3 - Vote overseas, and every ballot within 50 miles of an Embassy or Consulate must be verified there.
(15,000 overseas ballots from Timbuktu to vote in the Broward County elections would raise a red flag).

Go for it Fuzz.
I'm all for it!

We'd lose some fantastic wines and scenery without CA, and one of the world's largest economies and home to many large companies (for now).

I think their primary problem is losing their middle class.  They are becoming a haven for the very very wealthy and the poor and destitute.

So you see another reason why we should keep the electoral college?  It contains the damage that can be done by cheating.

Funny You Should Mention That

Glad you posted that Fuzz since it's so similar to what happened in California.
The only difference?
The Dem's are now threatening to not seat the Republican Congressman elect from North Carolina.

I thought I heard there was another state that this was going on in, but I have been in bed all week with the crud and not paid a lot of attention
President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”
