Democrats Attempting Pre-Election Fraud

Just when I get tired of ranting about the Democratic Party’s voter and registration fraud, they pull another shenanigan and set me off again. And so I once again subject those of you unfortunate enough to read my constant blithering to another tirade.

In the referenced article, the Democrats have teamed up with People for the American Way, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees and the AFL-CIO to file nine lawsuits in that great bastion of competent voters, Florida. Surprise of surprises, they are accusing the Republicans of disenfranchising minority voters.
One suit challenges a ruling by Mrs. Hood to throw out forms on which new voters had failed to check a box indicating whether they were U.S. citizens, and another argued that although only 17 percent of the voters in Broward County and 20 percent in Miami-Dade County were black, more than a third of the voter-registration forms that were determined to be incomplete and invalid in both counties involved black voters.
Now, come on. If someone cannot confirm their U.S. citizenship by checking a box, do we really want this person voting in the first place? Obviously the Democrats do, and with good reason. It’s easier to swindle the incompetent than someone with a bit more intellectual gunpowder.

And let’s talk about this “discrimination” against minority voters. If a group of people does something stupid and some observer actually says that it’s stupid, then this is no big deal unless members of that group happen to belong to a minority. Then it becomes racist or bigoted or any of a number of catchphrases liberals like to toss around when confronted with hard facts.

The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights made the claim that black voters were disenfranchised in the 2000 presidential election in Florida. Here is an example of what happened:
During hearings in Tallahassee, Fla., the commission called three black voters to substantiate what the panel said was a "conspiracy" to block minority voters from polling places, but none of three could show that they had been denied their right to vote. No other witnesses were called.
Allow me to corrupt a famous saying: There are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are Democratic electioneering tactics.
