New Accusations Against the GOP
There is no truth to that statement but a lot of people either believe it or pretend to believe it.
Now some are claiming that the GOP plans to use foreclosure lists to keep people from voting. This was released in a far-left news site (an oxymoron if there ever was one), Michigan Messenger. (also here.)
Evidence: Non-existent! That is except for a private phone-call between the reporter and a GOP county chair. Assuming the GOP was planning to do such a thing, why would they tell their political opposition about it? It makes absolutely no sense to do so.
“We will have a list of foreclosed homes and will make sure people aren’t voting from those addresses,” party chairman James Carabelli told Michigan Messenger in a telephone interview earlier this week. He said the local party wanted to make sure that proper electoral procedures were followed.
Sorry but this does not pass the smell test. (That is correct Michigan Messenger; I do not believe you!) The rest of the article merely says that the GOP is preparing teams to make sure that there is a minimal number of illegal votes cast. Of course they go out of their way to make sure that this perfectly legitimate function sounds as sinister as possible.
What is to stop me from trying to vote in every precinct in this county? I certainly hope someone would challenge me and stop me. (By the way, I have no intention of trying to do that.)
This is, in my opinion, nothing more than a preemptive strike to prevent the GOP from challenging questionable voters such as the graveyard vote, the vote early and vote often vote, and the Peter Pan vote. While there are probably some shenanigans by both parties, the abuses by the Democrats are, in my opinion, more widespread and more brazen.
Fortunately the GOP is fighting back.
