This person is a despicable and worthless human being. Jennifer Brunner is the Secretary of Vote Fraud enhancement in Ohio.
Jennifer Brunner cancels cross-checking of Ohio’s new voters
Posted by Reginald Fields/Plain Dealer Columbus Bureau
COLUMBUS — It is impossible to cross-check nearly 700,000 new or revised voter registrations filed this year without crashing Ohio’s registration system, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said Thursday. She added that the entire system will have to be rebuilt after next week’s election so that fraud can be more easily detected.
That’s a load of crap. Any relational database can handle a join between two tables on the contents of one field. Search of all registrants whose SSN doesn’t exist in the table of all valid SSN. That’s one pool of failures. Then search for all registrants whose SSN exists, but the name doesn’t match. You can set up the entire database, and do the searches, in less than a day on any “server quality” computer.
Same for the BMV. None of this is rocket science. Hell, it’s not even computer science. It’s basic DBA work.
Brunner said she discovered the system was too fragile to double-check the names, which her staff began trying to do earlier this month after the Ohio Republican Party sued the Democratic secretary to force her to check the registrations. At the time, even as she fought the lawsuit and eventually won at the U.S. Supreme Court, Brunner said she was making an effort to cross-check the registrations against state driver’s license and federal social security records.
“I spoke too soon,” Brunner said during a press briefing on election day procedures for Ohio, again expected to be a closely watched state in the presidential election.
Ah, an excellent defense: “hey, I lied to the court.”
Earlier this month, Brunner told The Plain Dealer that a cursory review by her staff had found about 200,000 discrepancies in the newly filed or revised registrations since Jan. 1. That does not mean each was a case of fraud, but could mean someone incorrectly jotted down a driver’s license or Social Security digit on the applications.
But the Ohio Republican Party suggested that some of those cases could amount to voter fraud and that Brunner, as the state’s top elections officer, was obligated to double-check the information. Brunner argued that federal rules only require the state to have a system in place for double-checking registrations but do not require her to make the checks.
Since she’s claiming her system can’t do that, she’s saying that she’s violated Federal Law.
Take her to court, convict her, and put her in jail.
