There’s a pattern here.
Via Patterico’s Pontifications
You may have read that there is strong evidence of voter fraud in Houston. Here’s what you may not have heard: the organization accused of shady behavior is linked to a former head of an Obama campaign office. She is a fan of Che Guevara. She is also the person who invited to a town hall meeting a woman who then posed as a doctor at that meeting during the health care debate.
Here are the details.
“When Catherine Engelbrecht and her friends sat down and started talking politics several years ago, they soon agreed that talking wasn’t enough. They wanted to do more. So when the 2008 election came around, “about 50” of her friends volunteered to work at Houston’s polling places.
“What we saw shocked us,” she said. “There was no one checking IDs, judges would vote for people that asked for help. It was fraud, and we watched like deer in the headlights.”
Their shared experience, she says, created “True the Vote,” a citizen-based grassroots organization that began collecting publicly available voting data to prove that what they saw in their day at the polls was, indeed, happening — and that it was happening everywhere.”
. . . .
Their work paid off. Two weeks ago the Harris County voter registrar took their work and the findings of his own investigation and handed them over to both the Texas secretary of state’s office and the Harris County district attorney.
Most of the findings focused on a group called Houston Votes, a voter registration group headed by Sean Caddle, who also worked for the Service Employees International Union before coming to Houston. Among the findings were that only 1,793 of the 25,000 registrations the group submitted appeared to be valid.
The other registrations included one of a woman who registered six times in the same day; registrations of non-citizens; so many applications from one Houston Voters collector in one day that it was deemed to be beyond human capability; and 1,597 registrations that named the same person multiple times, often with different signatures. . . .
“The integrity of the voting rolls in Harris County, Texas, appears to be under an organized and systematic attack by the group operating under the name
Houston Votes,” the Harris voter registrar, Leo Vasquez, charged as he passed on the documentation to the district attorney.Guess who was active in recruiting for Houston Votes? That would be one Maria Isabel.
Were it not for a few investigative journalists, those who aid and abet the rampant corruption in Obama’s regime, would go unchecked.
Don’t even expect Obama’s DOJ to probe this. Quite frankly, Eric Holder couldn’t give a shit unless it’s something to do with the enforcement of immigration law in Arizona.
The Dems’ propensity for in-your-face-voter fraud may as well be part of the DNC platform. There’s a cabal of Obama myrmidons; ACORN, Obama’s Organizing for America, unions, corrupt Dem officials, and a sycophantic DOJ, working tirelessly to subvert the integrity of the election process.
Not since the days of Tammany Hall has there been this much widespread corruption in voting.
On 2 November 2010, we will take out the Congressional and Senate trash. Obama’s trip to the dumpster will follow in 2012. It cannot come soon enough.
