Election Day Hi-Jinks Links...

Getting a lot of stories from the BLNN about voter fraud. I'm going to post this and then update the list as more come in. Just for the record...

Group home accused of taking patients to vote for Obama, as agency disputes claim
The father of a mentally handicapped woman claims his daughter and others were “carted off” to a North Carolina polling site last week and “coaxed” into voting for President Obama by workers of the group home where she stays -- a claim the owner of the home disputes and that apparently has not yet triggered an investigation by election officials.

NY Gov. Cuomo signs order allowing Sandy victims to vote anywhere
ALBANY, N.Y. – Gov. Andrew Cuomo has agreed to issue an executive order that will allow displaced voters to cast ballots by affidavit at any polling site they can reach Tuesday.
Can someone, anyone, please tell me how this is NOT just RIPE for fraud?
I didn't think so.

Oregon elections worker fired after allegations of ballot tampering
An elections worker in Oregon was fired after she was accused of tampering with ballots, in a case that has since been referred to the state's Department of Justice for investigation.
NOTE: This is one case where the fraud was for the Republicans.
Voter fraud monitors on high alert for Election Day
With Election Day polls set to open in mere hours, those monitoring the vote for fraud and funny business are already on high alert.
Late last month, the state of Florida raised flags after strange letters started to go out telling voters that their citizenship was being questioned and that voting could expose them to possible jail time.
Isn't that sweet? What's a little voter intimidation when it's for the "right" party? There are several other instances at that link as well.
Funny business in Philly: GOP officials booted, Black Panthers return -- and Obama at polling site?
A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.
Got that? GOP officials were kicked out of polling places. And one of the sites has a full-wall mural of Obama in the polling place - nope, no conflict there.

Still think Romney's going to take PA?

If you come across any other stories of fraud - for either party - send 'em in and I'll post updates.

That is all.

Our upstate NY National Guard was deployed to help out with hurricane relief in NYC, too late to apply for absentee ballots. Even though the city is just a few hours away they are not being brought home to vote, nor are they being permitted to vote in any other way.

I posted about this one on Saturday: "NJ residents displaced by storm can vote by email".

Like the one you posted for NY, someone PLEASE tell me how this is not just ripe for fraud.

Not fraud per-see but stupid is as bad.
