The Queen of Vote Fraud

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.

Does the Ohio GOP have enough Vote Trackers?

Yet another invaitation to fraud in Ohio

As a result of concerns about the reliability of touch-screens and long lines at the polls, Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner ordered Franklin County and the 52 other counties using the electronic machines to make paper ballots available on Election Day.

But while elections officials say it’s difficult to predict how many voters will opt for a paper ballot, they plan to count them only after all the electronic votes are tallied — meaning final vote totals could be delayed in some counties until early in the day after the election.

“It could be Wednesday morning before (final) results are released,” said Shannon Leininger, director of the Ashland County Board of Elections and president of the Ohio Association of Election Officials.

Lovely. So the woman who fought all the way to the Supreme Court to keep from having to tell the county polling boards which 200,000 new registrations were potentially invalid, is saying “count all the electronic votes, then figure out how many paper ballots we need to create in order to steal the election for Obama then we’ll count the paper ballots.”

The Republican Party had better have poll watchers there all day keeping people from randomly adding more “provisional ballots”, and more people to track the ballots until they are all counted, to make sure no extra ballots get “discovered”.

In 2000, 500 votes for Gore were “discovered” during the recount, and he “won” the state by 364 votes.  I’m sure Ohio Vote Fraud Procurer in Chief Jennifer Brunner would “hate” for taht to happen in Ohio.

News intimidation attempt by Obama Lawyer

October 27, 2008

I’m shocked, shocked, to discover that Obama has thugs working for him as lawyers.

The Polestra University newspaper had the bad taste to break news about out of state Obama campaign workers violating the law by voting for Obama in Ohio instead of (or in addition to?) voting for him in their home states, and, even worse, to follow up on the story. What does the Obama Campaign do? They send a lawyer after the student journalists.

In other words, I am going to read what you write and watch what you say. Hopefully you will be fair and impartial as you told me you would be.

As Jammie Wearing Fool points out, this guy is a jerk, and he needs to be stomped.  An apology isn’t enough.  Fired by the Obama campaign would be a nice start, if such thuggishness weren’t already established as SOP for the campaign.

Hot Air has a nice collection of links to articles about the thuggishness of the Obama Campaign.

The true, proper, punishment for this is for Obama to lose.

Obama’s Campaign Finance Fraud

October 23, 2008

The Obama campaign announced that it raised $150 million in September. But there are some interesting details about that money you may not see highlighted by the MSM

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe did not detail the contributions, beyond saying that the campaign had added 632,000 new donors to its rolls and that the average donation for the month was less than $100.

Wow! Isn’t that great! American’s are getting active in politics like never before. They care!

Or, it’s all a big fraud.

Speaking to Chris Wallace on the FOX show, McCain complained that Obama won’t have to detail the source of the small donations.

“There’s $200 million of those campaign contributions, there’s no record,” McCain said. “They’re not reported. You can report online now … $200 million that we don’t know where the money came from. A lot of strange things [are] going on in this campaign.”

Ace is all over this

Having worked for companies that process credit cards online, it is necessary to go through and manually disable the safeguards that they put in place to verify a person’s address and zip code with the cardholder’s bank. But international banks don’t currently have the same safeguards that banks in the US have, which also works in the One’s favor.

So most likely they’ve disabled the necessary safeguards for US cards which their merchant bank would be angry about if they found out since it exposes them to risk, as well as international cards which is an even greater risk because there’s no way to verify the information electronically for most countries, so they could just say they’re in the US with phony info and the card will still process online. The One could then just claim that they said they were from America.

Senator Clinton’s website worked with a reputable company that had the same safeguards in place for her online donations, seems like someone just doesn’t like to play by the rules that credit card companies have put in place.

Then there’s the outright theft

Steve and Rachel Larman say a strange credit card charge appeared on their statement this month — a $2300 donation to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

And the fraud so poorly done that even the Obama campaign had to notice

Not long ago, the Obama campaign called [Mary Biskup of Manchester, Missouri] to ask why she donated $174,800, which was just $172,500 above the legal limit.

“That’s an error,” she said.

Biskup told the Post that someone must have use her name but other people’s credit cards to donate the money since no charges ever showed up on her bill.

Does this have consequences? Yes, it Does! Ben Smith of Politico reports Obama “refunded $1.7 million in contributions” in September. How many of those fraudulent donations aren’t being returned, because the people making them are trying to get around the campaign donation limits?

Has George Soros hired someone, given him a credit card, and said “make $180 dollar donations to the Obama campaign all day long”? For that matter, does he just have a computer program doing it?

Who were the people who made $174,800 in donations to the Obama campaign using Mary Biskup’s name? The credit card donations went through, that means they have the numbers. Given the numbers, they can find out who really owns those credit cards.

What police agency is responsible for funting down this kind of fraud? The US Justice Department?

Every person who “donated” to the Obama campaign using Mary Biskup’s name is a criminal. Will they be investigated? Will the Obama Justice Department investigate campaign finance fraud? Or will it be too busy investigating anyone who thinks the First Amendment means they have a right to criticize The One?

The election is in 13 days. Will you vote for fraud? Will you not vote at all? Or will you, if necessary, plug your nose, get drunk, get stoned, or just take a really long shower after voting for McCain / Palin?

Remember, it’s not just campaign finance fraud. It’s also vote fraud. Do you want you vote to matter, ever again?
