Skip to comments.No Virginia, the RNC CANNOT Monitor Polls for Ballot Security

Much of the conservative world seems shocked that the RNC is constrained from doing anything about voter fraud. The left wing blogosphere is laughing at everyone who didnt know this already. To me, its old old news sort of like the abolition of poll taxes. In fact, the abolition of poll taxes in 1964 is closer in time to the consent decree that the RNC entered with the DNC in 1982 than we are today distant from that same 1982 consent decree.
Simply, under the terms of the order, the RNC cannot engage in ballot security efforts to combat voter fraud.
This is part of the larger pattern of conservatives simply not understanding the way the left has manipulated the Machine. Read my piece at Front Page for more warnings about the state of play.
To the RNCs credit, theyve tried to get out of it. So it is up to private citizens to make sure our polls are free from criminal conduct.
Read this. might help.
So if the Tea Party rises to the top, does this contract become a ruling against them, also???
Seems to me the GOP has signed itself into a big corner.
And there is no end to the amount of voter fraud the Democrats are willing to do.
“Once the probable cause for electoral fraud is set out, then a criminal investigation ensues...”
Only if you can find a prosecuting attorney to act or a judge that will hear the case. If the Democrats have that all lock-up you’re probably out of luck.
Yes, I’ve read the consent decree. It says RNC “employees” cannot interrogate voters inside polling places. Volunteers and local party employees can. It also says the RNC cannot have its employees deputized as law enforcement officials to interrogate voters. Poll watchers are not law enforcement officials; all that clause means is the RNC cannot have Sheriff Joe make all the RNC people into deputy sherifs for the day.
