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.
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 …
