    Leaked funding documents reveal an effort by George Soros and his foundations to manipulate election laws and process rules ahead of the federal election far more expansively than has been previously reported. The billionaire and convicted felon moved hundreds of millions of dollars into often-secret efforts to change election laws, fuel litigation to attack election integrity measures, push public narratives about voter fraud, and to integrate the political ground game of the left with efforts to scare racial minority groups about voting rights threats. These Soros-funded efforts moved through dozens of 501(c)(3) and (c)(4) charities and involved the active compliance with civil rights groups, government...
  • Federal judges toss out Ohio’s congressional map as illegal gerrymander

    05/03/2019 10:49:37 AM PDT · by GIdget2004 · 45 replies ^ | 05/03/2019 | Rich Exner
    A three-judge federal panel unanimously ruled Friday that Ohio’s gerrymandered congressional district map is unconstitutional, and ordered the creation of a new map in time for the 2020 election. The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio, on behalf of the League of Women voters and others, filed the suit a year ago in an attempt to move up the timetable for congressional redistricting reform in the state. “This ruling is a victory for every Ohio voter, because a fair congressional map before the 2020 means a stronger democracy for the Buckeye State," said Jen Miller, executive director of the League...
  • (Florida) Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Liberal Coalition's Redistricting Map

    In a 5-2 opinion, the Florida Supreme Court Wednesday approved a map for the 27 congressional districts submitted not by the Florida Legislature, but by the Florida League of Women Voters and other members of a liberal coalition and approved by Circuit Judge Terry Lewis in October. See the high court's decison here. The resulting map approved Wednesday is basically the work of Democratic operatives. Justice Ricky Polston, one of the dissenters, criticized the decision because Judge Lewis relied on a map drawn by a redistricting consultant with ties to Democrats and was designed to intentionally pack Republicans into districts. That...

    The author of a proposed constitutional amendment to require a photo ID when voting is offering an olive branch to the bill’s most vocal opponent. “When this passes… I would expect the League of Women Voters to work with us,” said state Rep. Mary Kiffmeyer, Republican from Big Lake. The League is not accepting. “If it passes the Legislature, we will continue to educate voters. If it passes [in November], we will have to take a look at both options -- try to make it work or go to court,” says Laura Wang, executive director of the League of Women...

    MADISON — What’s in a million names? Wisconsin and the world were supposed to find out Monday. Now, the Government Accountability Board, or GAB, which oversees state elections and campaigns, is reportedly holding off posting the reported 1 million signatures on petitions seeking to recall Gov. Scott Walker due to privacy concerns. GAB spokesman Reid Magney told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Monday evening the board was holding off on posting the names online after hearing concerns about a stalking victim and others who did not want their names released. Earlier in the day, Magney told Wisconsin Reporter that the...
  • Another Crowd Overrides Moderator To Say Pledge

    In a deja vu moment, a second crowd interrupts a Leave of Women Voters moderator to say the Pledge of Allegiance. A few days ago we posted a video of a crowd jumping to their feet to say the Pledge. That happened after an audience member asked the ACORN activist League of Women Voters moderator "Are we going to say the Pledge of Allegiance?", which she promptly stated "No we are not. That’s not part of the proposal tonight." The crowd defied her reply and stood to say the Pledge anyway. That same incident happened again as the debate between...

    At a debate sponsored by the Illinois League of Women Voters between Democratic incumbent Rep. Melissa Bean, GOP challenger Joe Walsh and Green Party candidate Bill Scheurer Wednesday, the audience loudly objected when the moderator, Kathy Tate-Bradish, insisted on proceeding without reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. In the end, she didn’t stand a chance against the 300-member audience. The camera captures Republican Joe Walsh’s reaction: Ms. Tate-Bradish reportedly scolded the crowd after the pledge ended, blaming the outburst on the Republican candidate. The LWV executive director, Jan Czarnik, also condemned the Pledge’s recitation, telling the local news, “It’s a phony...

    Big Government types and Prop 99 All you really need to know about the two eminent domain propositions on the June 3 ballot, 98 and 99, is that Proposition 99 is being touted by politicians and other government types as the real solution to government intrusion on private property ownership. Among them are the usual suspects, including California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, both of whom believe in Big Government, and both of whom describe Proposition 98 as a hindrance to solving such state problems as water quality and supply. Feinstein, in a release at the end...

    League of Women Voters drops support of paperless voting machines By RACHEL KONRAD, AP Technology WriterLast Updated 6:56 pm PDT Monday, June 14, 2004The League of Women Voters rescinded its support of paperless voting machines on Monday, after hundreds of angry members argued that paper ballots were the only way to safeguard elections from fraud, hackers and computer malfunctions. About 800 delegates who attended the nonpartisan league's biennial convention in Washington voted to adopt a resolution that supports "voting systems and procedures that are secure, accurate, recountable and accessible."

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- The League of Women Voters, that venerable group established shortly after women's suffrage was won over 80 years ago, has undergone extraordinary changes in the past three decades. But the public image that persists is one of a "little old ladies' club" that works the polls on Election Day. Some are claiming the group's political agenda is a far cry from that of a middle-of-the-road voter education advocate. A review of the "Where We Stand" section of the League of Women Voters website reveals political goals well beyond that of female voter recruitment. Its comprehensive policy...
