Board of Elections gaffe may nullify New York soldiers' overseas absentee ballots.
N Y Daily News ^

Posted on 10/11/2010 3:46:21 PM PDT by mandaladon

Sen. Charles Schumer blasted Board of Elections officials Monday for blowing a deadline for sending ballots to troops overseas - putting their chance to vote at risk.

"Our troops sacrifice their lives to protect our freedoms. They should never, ever be denied the right to vote," Schumer said.

There are approximately 50,000 New York City residents serving overseas - and 320,000 statewide.

Elections officials were originally supposed to ship the ballots to troops by Sept. 17. Because New York primaries were held Sept. 14, the federal government granted local officials an extension until Oct. 1.

Maybe, JUST MAYBE, a field commander of US forces will man up and outflank this manouever by making sure his guys get to vote instead of JUST DIE already.

Hey Chuckie Schumer

Put your actions where your mouth is, either change party affiliation or file criminal actions against the entire election board.

The Democrat Party has helped keep the American Military man from voting for years. They all are liars just like Obama. The ignorant in America will destroy us.

Anyone who really thinks this was an accident or “gaffe,” I have a bridge to sell them.

The Brooklyn Bridge is already taken, but I’ll sell you the Queensboro Bridge if you give me a good offer.

This was well orchestrated by Chucky Schumer and the rest of the New York RATS to prevent our military (over 300,000 in NY alone) from voting for non-Nobama candidates. Save your outrage, you filthy ba$tardS. The RATS know full well exactly what they did. Disgusting! And now to feign complete well-planned ignorance and delayed outrage is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!

Not only was this “gaffe” contrived to occur, but so is it that Shmucky Schumer would be out front with his terlet mouth, when in reality it is HIS party that will engage in the extensive cheating.

Well send the ballots already. Stop playing around. The election board in New York needs to be fired immediately and get people whom will not play politics. The soldiers should be given the right to vote over a bunch of convicts in a prison. More corruptocratic poltics in play. Tel Obozo and Chucky Schmucky to resign immediately, A comander in chief whom is nothing but a donkey

The right thing to do would be to send the ballots out and to hold election open for the military votes to return. But I don’t see either the justice dept. or any dem associated with the NY state board of elections doing any such thing.

The men and women in uniform should be allowed to vote and these commies should just have to take it. These commies make me sick.

This will stop when a Republican Congress holds hearings, affixes blame, and SENDS PEOPLE TO JAIL for it. Otherwise, what’s the downside? Democrats will keep doing it year after year after year. The Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act is a federal law, passed by both Houses and signed by Obama. If it doesn’t have any teeth, then it was obviously passed for PR purposes, and is a complete joke.

First of all, Schumer is lying through his teeth. Secondly, no race is NY will be declared final until EVERY military absentee ballot is received and counted. Thirdly, everyone responsible for this screwup is fired.

The military can fly them over there in time and back in time.

They do this every year with Thanksgiving turkeys; why not ballots?

Ballots should have FIRST PRIORITY, and it would only
take ONE PLANE from the US to fly them over.

No excuses.

Looks like the following may have missed the deadline:

http://blogs.wsj.com/metropolis/2010/10/11/elections-officials-blamed-for-bungling-military-ballots/

According to a letter sent to the Pentagon last week by state board of elections officials, New York City, Erie, Niagara, Putnam and Westchester counties all failed to get all their ballots in the mail to military personnel and Americans living abroad.

Yes - someone in NY needs to charter a plane and fly those ballots over. I would donate to that cause and I’m sure a lot of others would as well.

The counting of all votes in NY needs to be delayed until all military votes have been cast and received back in the appropriate precincts. There must be some court order that can be sought ordering this.

That’s the only way to stop this cr*p. Quite amazing the way bureaucratic ‘incompetence’ always effects the military vote only but somehow never that in the inner city for example.

The answer is very simple.

Every member of any elections board which fails to ship ballots in time spends 10 days in jail for each day the ballots are late.

Two years from now we will have ballots delivered on time...

This has been known about for some time, and now, when the delays have already hurt the soldiers voting opportunity, the liar Schumer seeks to pretend outrage, as if he really cared when caring could have put pressure before now. He’s a fraud.

blasting while he benefits...Schmucky

Made to order for this scumbag. It's a safe assumption that the ballots cannot now be legally accepted and that's why this worthless oxygen waster is doing this.

Many of us here predicted that 2008 was the last (semi) legitimate election. 350,000 votes is no longer small time fraud. Anyone on this board that thinks a Republican in a Democrat area with a 5% lead in the polls has a chance of winning is smoking some boss weed.

The only thing missing in this campaign is a "Reischtag fire". But we do have 3 weeks left, plenty of time.

Ah well, maybe I should quit now before the IRS Brownshirts come for me.

There is a good chance that this election will be a dry run for 2012. Obama’s only chance to win will be massive election fraud, and he has to find out how much the American people will tolerate. Expect more in the next 2 1/2 weeks.

OK. I want only $20,000,000 for the Queensboro Bridge. As is condition. But I need a $10,000,000 down payment before I mail it to you.

First guy who sends me a certified check for $10,000,000 gets it!
