Police Powerless to Stop Vote Fraud as Liberals Would Rather Prosecute Police For Trying

Many Democrats and their liberal supporters love to make unsubstantiated and wild claims of disenfranchisement and restricting access to voting.  These same folks have no interest in actually fixing elections.  Ironically the state that may prove this best, New York, is the home of the leading vote fraud deniers, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton and the Brennan Center.  And this is not a matter of a Republican group calling out Democrats.

How Democrats Work To Restrict Voting and Disenfranchise People in a Purple State

Justin Riemer, the former Deputy Director of Elections in the swing state of Virginia and editor/co-author of RNLA’s recent response to the Presidential Commission on Election Administration, does not think about elections in a “partisan” fashion  after his former job helping to run elections in Virginia.  What the left does not understand, Justin is a typical Republican fighting to making it easier to vote and harder to cheat.

Executive Summary of the RNLA Response to the Presidential Commission on Election Administration

The Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) issues this reportto offer its perspective on the recent report of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration (PCEA) outlining recommendations to improve election administration in the United States. RNLA agrees with many of the Commission’s recommendations, particularly its identification of deficiencies in our voter registration system as a significant contributor to Election Day problems such as long lines at the polls. The PCEA’s recommendations to reform voter registration are good ones and, if states adopted them, the reforms should greatly improve citizens’ voting experience. RNLA offers other suggestions in addition to adopting many of the PCEA’s recommendations. Taken in tandem, these recommendations will result in a secure and voter-friendly voter registration system that provides alternatives to same-day voter registration while avoiding the management issues which historically attend the combining of two functions on Election Day – voting and registration. RNLA also welcomes most of PCEA’s recommendations to improve polling place management, including leveraging technology through the use of electronic poll books and ID card bar code/magnetic stripe scanners. RNLA also appreciates the PCEA pointing out the need for continued improvements to the voting experience for our military and overseas voters and generally agrees with PCEA’s recommendations in this area. Finally, RNLA agrees that the current voting equipment testing and certification system is inadequate and needs reform. We recommend a move away from the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) certification process in favor of voluntary consensus standards.

Democrats to Pay a Price for Their Double Standard on Billionaires

Mark Pfeifle writes (emphasis added):


The hypocrisy starts with the Senate Majority PAC -- the type of corrupting, “special interest cash”-laden super PAC that the left alternately decries and adores. The group is currently running television ads defending vulnerable Senate Democrats or potential candidates in Louisiana, Arkansas, Colorado, Michigan and North Carolina. The ads invariably link the Republican candidate to “billionaires” -- especially the horrible “out of state” variety.
