Have no fear though.....MacIver "news" service is on the case!
Plus they are not alone, they are getting support from RNC chair Reince Priebus. Reince has always been disgusted that African Americans vote and is ramping up his rhetoric now:
The chairman of the Republican National Committee said Wednesday GOP candidates have to perform 1 or 2 percentage points better than they otherwise would to overcome voter fraud -- claiming that voter fraud is far more pervasive than what official reports have shown.
About 2.1 million votes were cast in the 2010 race for governor, and 1 to 2 percent would equate to 21,000 to 42,000 votes. Some law enforcement officials have raised concerns about isolated incidents of voter fraud, but never suggested it approached a scale like that.
“I’m always concerned about voter fraud, you know, being from Kenosha, and quite frankly having lived through seeing some of it happen,” said Reince Priebus, the RNC chairman and former state Republican Party chairman. “Certainly in Milwaukee we have seen some of it and I think it’s been documented. Any notion that’s not the case, it certainly is in Wisconsin. I’m always concerned about it which is why I think we need to do a point or two better than where we think we need to be to overcome it.”So is Reince telling the truth? Of course not:
Lester Pines, an attorney involved in a separate legal challenge to the voter ID law, also denounced Priebus' comments, saying they were baseless.
"His statement that Republicans need to outperform Democrats by one to two percent to account for vote fraud is an absolute, total 100% lie," Pines said. "It is a fantasy. And Reince Priebus and his ilk are saying this and they’re saying it over and over and over because they’re using the well known propaganda tool called the big lie. If you say it enough times, people will believe it. There’s no other way to characterize this except that Reince Priebus is a liar."
Priebus made his comments ahead of Tuesday’s recall election for GOP Gov. Scott Walker, who faces Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett. Pines charged that Priebus was making the allegations about voter fraud because he is worried Walker will lose and he is trying to find a way to explain why.O look a new wrinkle, as we get closer to the actual election, they need to start setting expectations for a possible loss. What might that be? African Americans cheated of course.....they even got hate monger Charlie Sykes on board! Check out this from his latest TV show:
"If this election turns out to be neck-and-neck; if it turns out to be decided, let's say Tom Barrett were to win this election by, say, 7,000 votes, I can tell you right now: There is not a single conservative, not a single Republican in the state of Wisconsin that would think that was a legitimate election, that it was not stolen... if you had the photo ID, people wouldn't have been happy about it, but at least they would have realized the legitimacy of that election."Disgusting? Yes
Just wait until Scott Walker is voted out on Tuesday June 5th!
Things are going to get real ugly from our friends on the right!!
