Election Fraud Conviction Labeled “Irrelevant”
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 27 Apr 2013 | John Semmens

Posted on 04/28/2013 2:45:12 PM PDT by John Semmens

Former St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan, Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of fabricating signatures on petitions that enabled Senator Barack Obama, to get on the presidential primary ballot in 2008. The finding means that Obama lacked sufficient valid signatures to qualify.

Obama’s 2008 campaign manager, David Plouffe, labeled the convictions “irrelevant and of no consequence. Look, we’re talking about a few hundred forged signatures in one Indiana county. In the end, 69 million votes were recorded for Barack Obama. He was clearly the choice of a majority of Americans. What’s the difference if there were a few minor irregularities in the process on his way to the presidency?”

Plouffe said hoped that “the punishment for these two longtime Democratic Party stalwarts wouldn’t be too harsh. I think we have to consider intent. Election rules can be complex and picayune. The time spent complying could be put to better use doing something else. These officials were only trying to enable the most qualified person to succeed. Since that intent was fulfilled we should forgive any missteps that occurred.”

Well, I guess if Democrats can break laws with impunity, then.....anyone else can. And then you have anarchy, which is what they want first so they can crush dissent and create their police state by fiat. Then the conservatives end up in their gulags and their utopia will finally come into being, sans a Constitution which they’ve ignored for decades, or got around via activists courts. Welcome to the new world of our marxist friends, the democrats. By hook or by crook, they will pursue this end by any means necessary. We’ll see who has the backbone to stop them, via legit election or other means as history has demonstrated. Too bad blood shed appears inevitable in such situations, and mostly innocent people in the last 100 years. Tragic, pathetic but avoidable if......

My guess is that the convictions of Morgan and Blythe (same surname as Bill Clinton's biological father, BTW) are real news and the comments from Plouffe are satire.

The 2012 election was the second biggest fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. The first is 0bama himself. All brought to you by the mainstream media propagandists for the radical left.

2008 = 'Change'

2012 = 'Forward'

Get a F'ing CLUE, America.

Semi News - Semi Satire is getting closer and closer to the TRUTH daily. Getting hard to tell the difference.

That’s like certain districts going for obumer by 100% in the last election. That can’t happen. Someone would have made a mistake. But hey, it’s not a scandal if the news does not report it/S

You’re going to have to mark these posts according to percent news and percent satire. “Semi” means 50/50 and that balance does not fit.

That pretty much sums up the perverse thinking of today's left, though many of their useful idiots are still unaware of what is really going down here.

I'd bet my last dollar that these two convicted cheats pulled off other cheating and fraud tactics to help their man to a tainted narrow victory in Indiana in the 2008 general election vs. McCain.

The direct victim of this particular fraud in the 2008 Indiana 'Rat presidential primary was Hillary Rodham Clinton. Wonder what she'll have to say about these convictions. Well, I can already guess that she will say absolutely nothing, since she needs the 'Rat fraud machine in her planned 2016 presidential run.

It matters because he would not have been a candidate in that district, and those “few hundred forged signatures” were symptomatic of statewide fraud, so he might not have been a candidate in that state. It matters because this stuff goes on in every state. These just happen to be the ones who got caught.

You're absolutely correct. You may have a shutout in baseball or football, but you can't have one in a free and fair election in any district or precinct with more than a handful of voters. Even in predominantly black districts, there are obviously at least a small percentage of voters who detest Obama.

Those reports of districts going 100% for Obama should have raised red flags to the roof at Romney campaign headquarters and at the RNC. Reporting such numbers was not a mistake. It was deliberate cheating on the part of the 'Rat operatives, who in some instances kicked out opposition poll workers. Yet I have seen no statement from the Romney campaign nor any other Republican group addressing this.

You can't win a presidential election with this massive degree of cheating and fraud perpetrated by an opposition with no respect for the fairness of the process!!!

Which begs the question why. Last time Mc-we-don't-have-to-be-afraid-of-Obama was pimping for him and this time election impossibilites are ignored. Nothing to see. Just another coinky dinks that only happen around hussein.

Will someone please check the vote talley in St Joe county for both 08 and 12. Want to know how can they not find enough registered voters to sign the petition to put him on the ballot but he wins the county. Does the decertification of a certain brand of voting machine make a significant difference in 2012 then the one used in 2008?
