Voter Fraud? Better Chance Of A Lotto Mega Millions Win Or A Personal Lightening Strike

— Dick Morris
(A former Clinton campaign official resigned from his post for patronizing hookers.)
Pensito Review
Dick Morris’ paid mistress said he had a fetish for toe sucking (info that goes into the TMI hall of fame) — and that he believed paying for her loving negated the fact he was cheating on his wife.

2007 Excerpt                                                                                                             
But in the Washington Post coverage yesterday, one name stuck out:



[Palfrey's attorney Montgomery] Sibley also filed notice that he intends to depose political consultant Dick Morris in a separate civil proceeding. Morris would not comment.
On the eve of the Democratic Convention in September 1996, Morris was forced to resign as head of Pres. Clinton’s reelection campaign after Sherry Rowlands, a call girl with whom he had a long-term for-pay relationship, sold her story to the supermarket tabloid “The Star” for around $50,000. In the article, Rowlands revealed that Morris had a fetish for toe sucking, a fact that will always have a place in the TMI hall of fame. 
She also offered a glimpse into Morris’ marriage that may have some saliency today, if his phone number does appear on Palfrey’s list:

Asked about Morris’s wife, Rowlands said: “I’m sure this is hurting her, and was not meant to hurt her. He’s the one who hurt her, not me. . . . He loves his wife — that’s why he would pay me . . . to come see him. That makes him feel he is not cheating on his wife. This is business as long as he’s paying for it.”
Shorter: It isn’t adultery if you pay for it.
It looks as if I digressed form the Voter ID and Voter fraud theme of this post. I must admit it is impossible to consider any words, thoughts of actions from Dick Morris without thinking of his off center sexual inclinations. We certainly do not past judgment on "toe sucking" nor are we reticent regarding patronizing prostitutes. But, Morris was reported to have been photographed partaking in the "lower appendage delights" on a balcony in New York City. Thus, the issue for me is his personal interaction judgment and personal values regarding his wife. So, for those who might linger on thoughts of my tendency for criticism, think deeper about a man who would take his lust for appendage delights to a balcony.

Morris's "one million cases" claim was relegated to typical Morris lying within hours of his utterance. Politifact found the comment:

The intellectually inquisitive and informed know to seek information where information can be considered credible.  

Voter Fraud as an impetus for GOP enactment of Voter ID Laws. 

As we recently watched a Wisconsin Appeals Court upheld (or reinstated) a state Voter ID law, it is critical to accept the laws as GOP's strategy to restrict the vote of minorities the elderly and the poor. It is important to report on the fallacy of "voter fraud" perpetrated against, let's be more specific, black people and any group that falls in the cross hairs of GOP election suppression targeting. If you are a person who follows current events and voter news stories you know some GOP officials (at times women tea party officials) and well known conservative 'carnival barkers,' have posited women should also not have the right to vote. 

"And then they will came for me....."

GOP and its moneyed supporter's mission to counter dwindling support for the party and changing demographics contributes to false mantra such as that spewed by Dick Morris.  


On August 6th, 2017 Justin Levitt published a piece that obliterated Morris's demagoguery and shed more light on the underhanded tactics of teh GOP. Levitt's piece explores voter fraud in America from special elections through general elections. He even considered municipal elections. The number 31 stands-out in stark contrast to Morris's one million in Carolina (alone). 

'To put this in perspective, the 31 incidents below come in the context of general, primary, special, and municipal elections from 2000 through 2014.
You can visit the 31 incidents over the 14 year period via the Levitt piece linked here

Before we launch a few graphic related to a non -voter fraud problem, allow me to remind you over the past 6 years the only documented and nationally publicized cases of voter fraud or voter official malfeasance has been perpetrated by Republicans or employees of the republican election officials.

Roxanne Rubin, 56, a casino worker on the Las Vegas Strip, was arrested on Nov. 3, 2012 after trying to vote twice, once at her poling site in Henderson and then at a second site in Las Vegas. The poll workers at the second site said that she had already voted, but Rubin said that she hadn't and insisted on casting a ballot, which the poll workers refused to allow her to do.
If it is necessary to alleviate doubt, Rubin is a Republican.


In July/August 2012 Mother Jones ran a piece that depicted the non-reality of Voter Fraud. The piece delivers the message under a title:



Excerpt

BLOCK THE VOTE

Since 2001, nearly 1,000 bills that would tighten voting laws have been introduced in 46 states.
24 voting restrictions have passed in 17 states since 2011. This fall, new laws could affect more than 5 million voters in states representing 179 of the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
In the past two years, 5 battleground states (Florida, Iowa, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin) have tightened their voting laws.
As of April, 74 restrictive voting laws were on the table in 24 states.



Accusations VS Actual charges of Voter Fraud.





The cost of GOP Voting rights malfeasance!
