Culinary union signing up illegals to vote? Will anyone investigate?

Glenn Cook’s Sunday column in the Review-Journal spells out in lurid detail how local unions dragoon local illegal immigrants into registering to vote and then pressure them to cast ballots. He never says who they were urged to vote for but that takes no imagination, Harry.

Now the waiting begins.

The waiting?

Yes, waiting to see how long before some arm of the law — FBI, Metro, ICE, attorney general, secretary of state, NLRB, anybody — starts investigating these multiple felonies. Don’t hold your breath, you’ll asphyxiate. I wager there’ll not even be a casual phone call.

“The question,” Cook writes, “now that early voting is over and Election Day is just two days away, is how many of these ineligible voters have done the Culinary’s bidding and submitted ballots, whether out of ignorance or fear, and how many have the knowledge and courage to follow the law and stay away from the polls.”

Of course, with a roster of names and precincts, it would not be necessary for the illegals to actually vote. Since no identification is required at the polls, a couple of dozen union beards could’ve fanned out across the valley going from polling place to polling place during early voting and casting an untold number of ballots. They could do the same on Election Day. As we’ve seen on many occasions, a handful of votes in key races can make a difference. Even statewide races have had margins of less than 500 votes.

“We should ask every voter, upon registration, to prove citizenship, but we don’t,” Cook concludes. “Instead, we have an honor system that’s exceedingly easy to cheat and gives political parties and politically active groups a powerful incentive to break the law without much risk of being caught.”

I remember going door to door with John L. Smith in 2002 in search of people who had registered to vote via absentee ballot at a North Las Vegas biker bar. Every home was long deserted. In that case the bar owner bragged about his misdeeds and eventually was convicted.

Smith quoted the bar owner as saying, “Yes, I did say I got her (a county candidate) 100 votes, but I didn’t say I voted for her myself. I had 100 people I knew were voting for her. But I didn’t fill out the ballots. They came in (to his bar) and asked me who to vote for and I helped them. That’s all.”

But lawmakers and election officials have done nothing since then to prevent the same kind of voter fraud from reoccurring.

You can expect the same sort of yawn of indifference over Cook’s revelations, unless we the voters turn the laggards out … oh, yeah, they’re mostly Democrats who are backed by the unions, who …

    ah, I see. You are kind of seeding the ground to de-legitimate Obama’s expected victory tomorrow evening.

  2. nyp10025 says:

    Oh, I see. You and Sharon are still insisting that she really won.

  3. Vernon Clayson says:

    Ah, I see, nyp10025 is counting his chickens, etc. That aside, he’s approving the tactics of the Harry Reid liberals to get votes however questionable they may be or whatever measures they have to use to get people to the polls. Long gone are the days when one man one vote meant one legal voter and one legal vote, except in Illinois and more and more here in Nevada. These damned elections don’t come as a surprise, they are scheduled way in advance, there’s two years for some, four years for some and in the most unwise of political terms, senators serve for six years. Unions and politicians have had since 2008 to educate and enroll voters for this presidential election, this last minute rush by the unionists is to add voters, documented and undocumented, registered and unregistered, to get the edge when it appears their candidate is losing ground. If, as it appears, they bully individuals, or pay them, we must consider it very unlikely they have ever bothered to educate them on the qualities of their candidate. In this instance it’s Obama, what possible redeeming qualities could they espouse? That he’s hip and light on his feet?

  4. nyp10025 says:

    “hip and light on his feet”??

    what you meant to say was that he has natural rhythm, right?

  5. yes, pete, every statement made by a non-Democrat about Obama is inherently racist, by definition. Thanks for reminding us…again.

  6. nyp10025 says:

    only statements about the President being “light on his feet,” that come from someone who previously described the President as “a common street hustler.”

  7. Nibot Mus says:

    With this “justice department” of Holter, and our State’s “attorney general,” I pray that there is no investigation. The only one these partisans would prosecute and send to prison would be Glen Cook, probably for trying to influence the voting rights of “undocumented whatevers.”
    Note that the only poor bastard in trouble, and still in jail, in the Benghazi caper is the demented U-Tube “movie” creator who had nothing to do with the attack or the deaths of our Americans, except be the subject of the Administration’s cover-up lying.
    This is the “justice” of state socialism!

  8. Nevada does have a shield law, Nibot/John.

    I think the movie maker free now, but the Pakistani doctor who fingered bin Laden for our brave president is not.

  9. Steve says:

    The difference between Harry’s unfounded claims about Romney’s taxes and Glenn Cook’s article (be it opinion or not), Glenn Cook is a journalist, Harry is not. The journalism profession is founded on finding sources and reporting based on those finds even if they be anonymous by request. Journalists are supposed to be above reproach in this, they are supposed to hold their sources secret and this is paramount to getting sources to inform in the first place. I hope he follows up even after the election is over. Especially after the election is over.

  10. Vernon Clayson says:

    No, I didn’t infer he has natural rhythm, nyp10025, I recall the video of him throwing a baseball on opening day? Acting hip and light on his feet is more in tune with comedians Colbert, Stewart, Maher, and their faux news reports and comments. They enter smug and grinning, spewing sarcasm about Romney, Ryan, and Republicans in general, Obama avoids their vulgarities, publicly I bet, but the act is similar. The comedians, howeverm take limousines a few blocks to do their act while Obama flies thousands of miles between appearances on taxpayer supported Air Force One, several in a day, week in and week out, with his beleagured taxpayer supported escort aircraft, vehicles and personnel. How about this for a headline, OBAMA LOSES, AMERICA WINS.

  11. nyp10025 says:

    Yeah. Right. That’s what you meant.

  12. Milty says:

    How come those election monitors from the United Nations didn’t pick up on this stuff?

  13. Milty says:

    I doubt President Obama’s all that hip and light on his feet. No less an expert than David Stern said that President Obama isn’t a very good basketball player.

  14. Steve says:

    “JESUS AND THE DEMOCRAT”

    A Republican, in a wheelchair, entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Republican looked across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus sitting over there?”

    …The waitress nodded “yes,” so the Republican requested that she give Jesus a cup of coffee, on him.

    The next patron to come in was a Libertarian, with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down, and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, “Is that Jesus, over there?”

    The waitress nodded, so the Libertarian asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea, “My treat.”

    The third patron to come into the restaurant was a Democrat on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down, and hollered, “Hey there honey! How’s about getting me a cold mug of Miller Light?” He too looked across the restaurant and asked, “Isn’t that God’s boy over there?”

    The waitress nodded, so the Democrat directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. “On my bill,” he said loudly.

    As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Republican, touched him, and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Republican felt the strength come back into his legs, got up,
    and danced a jig out the door.

    Jesus passed by the Libertarian, touched him, and said, “For your kindness, you are healed.” The Libertarian felt his back straightening up, and he raised his hands, praised the Lord, and did a series of back flips out the door.

    Then, Jesus walked towards the Democrat, just smiling.

    The Democrat jumped up and yelled, “Don’t touch me … I’m on disability.”

    :mrgreen:

  15. Steve says:

    Bruce Springsteen and Jay Z say that you should vote for Obama. Alice Cooper says, “If you’re listening to a rock star in order to get your information on who to vote for, you’re a bigger moron than they are. Why are we rock stars? Because we’re morons.”

  16. Vernon Clayson says:

    He’s hip and light on his feet entering a campaign stop, it’s hype for image, not athletic. I don’t know which is worse, what he can do in the months remaining in office or what he has done in the last four years.
    Congress will sit on its hands as usual, they are a captive audience, not even bit players in his play.

  17. Milty says:

    Oh come on, Steve, do you really expect us to believe that a Democrat would do something charitable like buy someone a bottle of beer??? That’s what government welfare handouts are for!

    Other than that, your story is quite believable.

  18. Milty says:

    Steve: You’re about to catch hell from Nyp about your story. I’m sure he thinks that the Republican who “danced a jig out the door” is black.

  19. I thought he was Irish.

  20. But that’s my bias.

  21. Steve says:

    Milty, it was a two tiered story….

    Thomas, do they all look Irish to you? H/T Sharron Angle :mrgreen:

    Hoping for a good result on Tuesday!

  22. Vernon Clayson says:

    Here’s a thought for nyp10025 and other Obama supporters. There will eventually be a financial accounting by both major candidates, the fiddler must be paid. I’m betting that Romney’s campaign has been run with an eye to fiscal responsibility, it’s his history, while Obama has run his campaign on BS and credit and some donations that are legitimate, that’s outside the taxpayer funded transportation and escort personnel. Okay, we will never see a complete or honest record of those that have donated to Obama’s campaign but he must be desperate to stay in office so any accounting can be put off, and Congress won’t pry into it as each member has his and her own demons.

  23. Athos says:

    That’s a sad and scary thought, Vernon. We must (let me say it again with emphasis) MUST have leaders that aren’t morally bankrupt.

    The ends DON’T justify the means. Once again, Marx was wrong.

    Are you listening, Harry, you dirtbag sleezeball?

  24. Vernon Clayson says:

    Athos, Harry Reid obviously only listens to the voices in his head and a dirtbag sleezeball doesn’t stand out in a crowd/congress of them, which of them is actually different from the other?

  25. Athos says:

    Harry’s OUR dirtbag/sleezeball, Vernon. The good people of Nevada (MGM/Harrahs/Culinary Union) put him in office.

  26. Nibot Mus says:

    Thomas,
    My comment on Glen Cook being the probable one to hit the slammer was tongue in cheek, to a degress; but even with a “shield law,” this Justice Dept, sufficiently antagonized, would find a way legal or not. Just ask any secured bond holder in the auto bailout charade. To quote the famous legal light, Blackstone, “Necessity knows no law!” His statement was popular with defense lawyers representing desperate men during the depression trying to feed their families. For Obama & his ilk, it allows lawlessness.of government. Probably the only legal principle which Obama & Holter honor.
    None are safe, when the rule of law degenerates to the rule of man.

  27. Correct, Nibot/John, this admin knows no law or constitution, only power.

  28. Rincon says:

    The Supreme Court is supposed to enforce the Constitution. As long as Obama plays by their rules, it’s legal – sort of like the unconscionable spate of filibustering by our Republicans in the Senate – far more than any other Senate and numbering in the hundreds. It’s legal, and as long as the voters are happy with it, which they apparently are looking at the reelection rate, they will pay no penalty for shutting down a third of our Federal government.

  29. […] “evidence,” but only if you really look for it and actually, you know, ask questions. (I also wrote about it at the […]
