What if you won an election butt the incumbent refused to leave?
I know, silly isnt it? However thats exactly what happened in Alabama.
Employees of an Alabama plant will be voting for the fifth time on whether it will oust the United Auto Workers union. The union has lost three of the four previous votes at NTN-Bower Corporation, but has filed appeals with the National Labor Relations Board alleging management interference.
The one vote won by the union was nullified for voting irregularities. In that January vote, only 139 of the plant's 140 workers voted, but a total of 148 ballots were cast.
Butt thats a terrifying thought isnt it: three legal votes ignored in order to make way for a fraudulent fourth election due to irregularities. Irregularities? Where I come from, thats known as Chicago Rules!
"It shouldnt take five votes to get rid of a union that has clearly overstayed its welcome," Mark Mix, president of the National Right to Work Foundation, said, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
"The NLRB has stacked the deck against workers seeking to remove unwanted unions, allowing union officials to throw out results that dont go their way and hold onto power."
I know, I know; the nutz and slutz brigade (h/t James Carville) has been circulating rumors for months now about how Big Guy is going to impose martial law, suspend the Constitution and give himself a third term.
That, of course, is just crazy! Everyone knows Big Guy cant suspend the constitution. Right?
If you can dispense with immigration laws or marijuana laws or mandatory minimums, can you also dispense with election laws? Gowdy asked Lazarus, who replied, No.
Why not? If he can suspend mandatory minimum and immigration laws, why not election laws? Gowdy asked.
Because we live in a government of laws, and the president is bound to obey them and apply them, Lazarus answered.
Well hes not applying the ACA, and hes not applying immigration laws, and hes not applying marijuana laws, and hes not applying mandatory minimums. Whats the difference with election laws? Gowdy asked.
I just hope the UAWs ploy in the case of the Alabama plant that wants to throw them out isnt a trial run for something bigger. Because if weve learned one thing from the War on Women its that no means no. Right?
Anyway, thats the funny thing about politics, no is never your final answer. Thats why, no matter how many presidential elections weve had since 2000, we can never get rid of the Clintons:
Or the whining about Bushs stolen election,
And now, possibly, the WONs.
Butt some votes count more than others. Just like Animal Farm.
And well tell you whose votes count the most.

He’d be arrested (and deported)
“139 of the plant’s 140 workers voted, but a total of 148 ballots were cast.”
Is this a problem?
General Scott...call your office!
Maybe these were dead employees....you know....like it is in your hometown where dead folks vote there.
“circulating rumors for months now about how Big Guy is going to impose martial law, suspend the Constitution and give himself a third term.”
This has happened for EVERY two-term President I’ve lived under.
Hasn’t happened, isn’t gonna happen, if it did there’d be a million...er...movers at the WH the next morning offering to help ‘em go.
They just told them if they work overtime or a double shift they get to vote twice.
139 of the plants 140 workers voted, but a total of 148 ballots were cast.
“Is this a problem?”
Common core math.
