Democrats Guilty of Voter Fraud and Intimidation

Remember all of those disenfranchised voters from the 2004 elections? It turns out that most of them were Republicans.

Vote Fraud, Intimidation & Suppression In The 2004 Presidential Election

The non-partisan American Center for Voting Rights released its report on that topic this week, and the results are quite surprising.

ACVR Legislative Fund was established primarily to further the common good and general welfare of the citizens of the United States of America by educating the public about vote fraud, intimidation and discrimination which impacts the Constitutional right of all citizens to participate in the electoral process.

While Democrats routinely accuse Republicans of voter intimidation and suppression, neither party has a clean record on the issue. Instead, the evidence shows that Democrats waged aggressive intimidation and suppression campaigns against Republican voters and volunteers in 2004.

What’s this? It can't be!

First, to the Democrats' accusations. Who can forget Howard Dean, John Kerry and Jesse Jackson claiming victim following the election?

On June 2, 2005, Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean charged that Republicans caused long lines at polling places on Election Day to suppress the minority vote. Dean stated:

“The Republicans are all about suppressing votes: two voting machines if you live in a black district, 10 voting machines if you live in a white district. … You know, the idea that you have to wait on line for eight hours to cast your ballot in Florida there’s something the matter with that. … Well, Republicans, I guess, can do that because a lot of them never made an honest living in their lives.

That is one of my favorite quotes.

Democrat election officials in Franklin County and the U.S. Department of Justice have refuted this allegation. During the recent U.S. House Administration Committee hearing held in Columbus, William Anthony, Chairman of the Franklin County Democratic Party and County Board of Elections, flatly rejected the allegation that long lines were part of some effort to disenfranchise minorities and/or Democrat voters.

Anthony was “personally offended” by these allegations. As he told The Columbus Dispatch, “I am a black man. Why would I sit there and disenfranchise voters in my own community? … I feel like they’re accusing me of suppressing the black vote. I’ve fought my whole life for people’s right to vote.

Whoops, CBS must have missed that.

On to the real story:

• Paid Democrat operatives charged with slashing tires of 25 Republican get-out-the-vote vans in Milwaukee on the morning of Election Day.

• Misleading telephone calls made by Democrat operatives targeting Republican voters in Ohio with the wrong date for the election and faulty polling place information.

• Intimidating and deceiving mailings and telephone calls paid for by the DNC threatening Republican volunteers in Florida with legal action.

• Union-coordinated intimidation and violence campaign targeting Republican campaign offices and volunteers resulting in a broken arm for a GOP volunteer in Florida.

As it turns out, a whole series of scandalous activity was inflicted upon Republicans on Election Day. The press conveniently ignored the truth. The gory details of each of these incidents are here for all to see. I realize that the blind left doesn’t care any more about truth than they do about legalities, but some of these actions were worthy of MS-13. Read the report in its entirety if you have the time. I highly recommend it. Here is the pdf.

The file is large, but well worth the disk space. Keep it handy for the next time you hear a Democrat whine about election scandals.

The American Center for Voting Rights does no support or endorse any political party or candidate.

Good job guys. Thank you for the truth.
