Default Non-citizens caught voting in 2012 presidential election in key swing state

Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted announced Wednesday that his office found 17 non-citizens illegally cast ballots in the 2012 presidential election -- and has referred the case for possible prosecution.

The alleged crime would be a notable case of voter fraud in a key swing state. By law, only American citizens are allowed the privilege of casting ballots for the nation's leaders.

Ohio officials say that did not stop some from getting around the system.

"I have a responsibility to uphold election law, and under both federal and state law you must be a citizen to vote," said Husted, a Republican who has aggressively tried to investigate voter fraud cases in his state.

Husted also found that 274 non-citizens remain on the voting rolls.

But hey, we don't need voter ID laws cause we this is just another phoney scandal, voter fraud does not happen.

I think more dead people voted than illegals……..


Voter fraud is alive and well and showing proper ID in this day and age is just common sense…..

Voters have four years to handle their business….

If they can't, oh well…..

Try again four years later….



Seriously…..

Mandela T-shirt: ‘Get an ID. Register. Vote’

Quote:
While a progressive advocacy group has used the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela to advocate against voter ID laws, a picture of Mandela has surfaced that indicates the former president might not have agreed.

Friday, One Wisconsin Now issued a statement calling on Wisconsin Republicans to “honor” Mandela by stopping their “attacks on the right to vote for legal voters in the state of Wisconsin.” Those “attacks” are attempts to implement a voter identification requirement.

South Africa, however, requires an ID to vote.

Well that's weird. Liberals keep tellin' me there's no reason for requiring identification to vote because voter fraud is a fictional problem invented by Republicans to prevent minorities from voting.

So lets do the math. 17 voted illegally while there was 5,580,822 total votes. That works out to 3.046146248706732e-6 in scientific notation or rounded to .0000003% or there about. Hardly a big deal since more votes probably got dropped by the voting machines or people waiting in line for hours gave up and went home.

17 that were caught. How many have been doing this for years? We'll never know, and how many local election that have been decided by just a handful of votes did they cast ballots in? I know joe, it doesn't make a difference to you that the integrity of our election is being compromised by illegals.

Well lets see, in Wisconsin the also checked and came up with 15. Now none of these where aliens though 5 were convicted felons that thought their rights had been restored, with the rest similar mistakes. Now even with all of that the number don't warrant some of the rule changes applied. To me it is a party about to go in to the dust bin of history trying to win at all costs. No that is my opinion based the fact it wasn't started until Obama became president.

Now do you believe even if 100 votes where cast illegally it would make a difference? If so then you flat don't have a clue how the system works.

Your 100 votes in a local election damn well makes a difference, but apparently you don't mind.

That's the problem with liberals if the crime isn't big then they would just as soon let it go by the way side and make excuses for the criminals.

They aren't as big on math as they are on pouting. Ridiculous.
