CHRISTIE ALLOWS E-MAIL, FAX VOTING
Breitbart ^ | 11/4/12 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 11/04/2012 7:20:02 PM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

A week after Hurricane Sandy struck New Jersey, the state is still struggling to recover. Hundreds of thousands are still without power, thousands are displaced from their homes and basic food, water and gasoline are scarce. Despite Obama's promise to leverage the full resources of the federal government and cut through "red tape," the state largely will still be a disaster area on Tuesday, when voters nationwide go to the polls. So, the Christie Administration has announced that people will be able to cast their ballots by e-mail or fax on Tuesday. What could possibly go wrong?

I can't wait until the next time Christie's people send me a fund-raising mailer. I'll take the postage paid envelope and send it back...with a note suggesting he get his money from his new pal BHO.

Couldn’t agree more. I wonder what he was promised - slash - threatened about?

As for the voting - this is what Democrats are all about, create chaos and confusion, and eliminate standards so you can never be sure about what’s going on. So disappointed that Christie would go along.

You’re probably right in that Obama is likely to take NJ anyway. Still, it’s infuriating that any gov’t official would seriously suggest that this was a valid way to conduct an election.

Is there any kind of proclamation? Anything codifying the gov’s idea? I thought the states’ legislatures made laws regarding elections, how they are conducted, etc. NOT the governor operating unilaterally, regardless of any emergency.

And how are folks without power supposed to send emails or faxes? Even te smartest phone battery would be dead by now. If they can schlep to a Staples or Kinkos, they can schlep to a polling place. This makes zero sense.

No electricity, telecom infrastructure down, no one faxes any more, no way to verify voter identity. Why not?

Ridiculous. If this happens, there will be immediate bills (by dems) to make it permanent. After all, if such voting could be cobbled into existence within a few days and had been carried out “ without a hitch,” there’s no reason not to make it a permanent option.

Does anyone think Obama won’t take NJ anyway? There are only a handful of states in play in the presidential race. What it does affect however are their local elections. It is crazy to allow email voting.

The only state in New England that is in play for Romney is New Hampshire, so what is the big deal for this election anyway since more people up there are finding out the hard way who is on their side. All of those PO’ed people are not going to be looking for ways to prolong their misery.

Presactly. This isn’t about NJ (that state is voting 0 no matter). It’s about the terrible precedent.

His vision of that roller coaster going into the H2) gave him post-traumatic stress disorder methinks.

On “The Five” Spec. Ed. tonight, they showed a clip of him (sam outfit he’s been in for the past week) giving some sort of apology/explanation it was so much of nothing that anyone who dreamt it was any kind of an endorsement of Romney should check their stash of booze, they’ve had mor to drink than they thought.

And we had so many PhonyCons claiming Christie was some “conservative”...

Christie is a Pro-Islamic Terrorist Liberal who is doing everything possible to throw this election for Obama.

Once again....Fiscal Conservatives are neither....

I have always had a bad feeling about Christie at a gut level. He reminds me of a person that I work with who I can’t stand.

I don’t get it. If people live in an area where they have electricity to fax or email, why can’t they get to their polling places? For the really hard-hit places like Staten Island, it would seem more sensible to send some mobile polling vans to those areas.

Ah but let a republican try to eliminate a standard, and the mainstream media will be screaming bloody murder-

I’ve NEVER trusted him either- He’s nothing but a typical rhino- someoen who will say or do anythign as long as it furthers their career- - I couldn’t for htel ife of me understand why peopel were falling for his obvious BS and wantign him to run for president- I’m no mitt romney fan, however, I truly beleive Christie would have been worse- he’s just a sneaky person, like a sneaky dog that is ‘friendly’ to your face, but will circle aroudn and bite you from behind when you least expect it-

And this, ladies and gentlemen is why eliminating the Electoral college is just about the worst idea out there.

No matter how much fraud they pull, it will only help Jersey be bluer, not help Obama win.

Did you see Christie’s comments yesterday in Hoboken?

He talked about how he was the first governor to endorse Romney, how much he helped Romney raise money, etc. and how there was no question that he still thought Romney was the best candidate for president.

There was nothing ambiguous about it.

It's all about Christie.
SNL had a skit about Christie that was actually pretty spot on.

It had to be about Christie; Obama’s media tried to distort his praise of Obama’s aid for the hurricane into an endorsement of Obama (even calling it a “game-changer”).

Christie very effectively removed all doubts about it yesterday.

They can vote on November 6, they can pass out water but can’t provide temporary voting booths? Christie is a wimp. We still have election laws, hurricane or no hurricane. I am sick of these people looking for every excuse to cheat.
