NM Eyes 64,000 Cases of Possible Voter Fraud

Andra Varin, Newsmax, June 18, 2011

Just who is voting in New Mexico’s elections, and how many times?

New Mexico Secretary of State Dianna Duran has turned over a staggering 64,000 cases of possible voter fraud to the state Department of Public Safety for investigation.

That’s more than 10 percent of the 607,000 people who voted in the 2010 general election in the state, the Santa Fe New Mexican points out.

Duran’s office said some of the cases may be due to clerical error, but didn’t estimate how many that could be.

    These fraudulent ballots did not preclude the Governor’s Office and one of three Congressional districts, and most importantly for this investigation, the Secretary of State’s Office, from flipping from blue to red last year. But Democrats won almost everything else in the state, and by thin margins. Sans this voter fraud, Republicans would have probably won a lot more.

    Since the ethnic demographic in NM is NOT black, but hispanic minorities, we can be pretty darn certain the majority of those votes came from illegal aliens using fraudulent ID, or by going to “friendly” liberal polling places. In these days of tight races, just how many elections were thrown to the liberals or hispanic agenda’d candidate by those 10% of fraudulent votes State wide? Ten Percent of the total was FRAUDULENT?

    That’s pretty significant. Able to tip any election nearly, anywhere in the country, at any level.

    “Duran’s office said some of the cases may be due to clerical error, but didn’t estimate how many that could be.”

    In Latin America, everything is just on big “clerical error”.

    Voter fraud, committed overwhelmingly by Democrats, is epidemic in all metro areas with large minority populations.

    In the Philadelphia area where I live, many inner city precincts have voter rolls which haven’t been purged in decades. If one went by these rolls, one might conclude that the average age of inner city dwellers was around 110.

    Voter fraud is as direct an assault on the integrity of the republic as espionage in wartime. It deserves the same penalty.

    This pales in comparison with the Liberian general election of 1927. Remember, this is a black african country voting for a black president. Did he win? Of course he did! In the 1927 presidential election, the result was a victory for Charles D. B. King of the True Whig Party, who was re-elected for a third term after defeating Thomas J. Faulkner of the People’s Party. However, the vote was referred to as “the most rigged ever” by Francis Johnson-Morris, a modern head of the country’s National Election Commission, and also made it into the Guinness Book of Records as the most fraudulent ever, as despite there being fewer than 15,000 registered voters in the country at the time, King received around 240,000 votes, compared to 9,000 for Faulkner.

    What a staggering number! Certainly ten percent of any vote is a big chunk of cheese. Needles to say, innumerable elections have been won or lost by a margin much less than ten percent.

    Of course, if this is due to illegal aliens and non citizens voting, I don’t think anybody will be surprised.

    The big question is what are they going to do about it. It’ll be intersting to see what happens.

    Does (or did) New Mexico issue drivers licenses with out proof of residency? Do they also have a motor/voter law?

    If yes, there there should be no surprise at this news.

    I have a sister in NM and I know she voted – I’ll just give her a ringy-dingy and see if she would mind running to the polls sixty four thousand more times just to even things up a bit.

    I live in Hudson county, home of Jersey City and Hoboken. They have a long and oddly proud history of voter fraud. Vote early and often is a common joke. I have known several poll watchers who are near assaulted when they challenge a voter. Its even weirder than that, the towns are nearly all one party.
