Re: The GOP war on voting

Kris Kobach heading up voter integrity is like having Ted Bundy looking after women's rights.

The Cross Check program the GOP has come up with is an even more blatant way to steal votes.

Quote:
Crosscheck in action:
Trump victory margin in Michigan: 13,107
Michigan Crosscheck purge list: 449,922

Trump victory margin in Arizona: 85,257
Arizona Crosscheck purge list: 270,824

Trump victory margin in North Carolina: 177,008
North Carolina Crosscheck purge list: 589,393
Quote:
On Tuesday, we saw Crosscheck elect a Republican Senate and as President, Donald Trump. The electoral putsch was aided by nine other methods of attacking the right to vote of Black, Latino and Asian-American voters, methods detailed in my book and film, including “Caging,” “purging,” blocking legitimate registrations, and wrongly shunting millions to “provisional” ballots that will never be counted.

Trump signaled the use of “Crosscheck” when he claimed the election is “rigged” because “people are voting many, many times.” His operative Kobach, who also advised Trump on building a wall on the southern border, devised a list of 7.2 million “potential” double voters—1.1 million of which were removed from the voter rolls by Tuesday. The list is loaded overwhelmingly with voters of color and the poor. Here's a sample of the list

Re: The GOP war on voting

Found another case of voter fraud. Pull up your fainting couch, it is another Republican.

Quote:
EDWARDSVILLE -- An 88-year-old Illinois election judge has pleaded guilty to casting a vote as her late husband.

Audrey Cook entered the plea to attempted violation of election code, a misdemeanor, on Thursday in exchange for prosecutors agreeing to drop a felony perjury charge under the code, The Telegraph reported.

The original perjury charge alleged that Cook forged the name of the late Virtus “Vic” Cook on an absentee ballot while serving as an election judge in Alton, 20 miles north of St. Louis. The misdemeanor charge stated that she took her husband’s mail ballot knowing he was deceased.

Cook pleaded guilty to an amended charge in which the words “to carry out the wishes of her husband” were added.

The longtime Republican acknowledged Thursday that she attempted to vote for Donald Trump on behalf of her husband in September because she knew he wanted Trump to become the president.

“Now they should investigate all the cemeteries in Chicago,” Cook said after being charged just days before the election. She said she doesn’t feel she did anything wrong because her husband would have voted the same if he survived.

“My husband was very sick, and we applied for absentee ballots for both of us,” she said. “We got them a couple of days after he died, and I knew how he wanted to vote.”

Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons said Cook will be removed as an election judge.

Re: The GOP war on voting

Great article in WaPo today about trying to get ID: What happens when you can't prove who you are anymore?

Quote:
Brown, 61, a former receptionist, had taken three buses from Northeast Washington to the church at 16th and P streets NW, but it was clear she had been on a longer journey. After her mother’s death in April 2014, Brown lost the apartment they had shared. She returned from the grocery store one day to find her belongings on the sidewalk. She had been evicted.

“I tried to ... salvage what I could, but I was by myself,” she said. Her Social Security card and birth certificate were among the things lost that day. Since then, she had been floating from couch to couch among acquaintances, paying her hosts what she could and trying not to overstay her welcome. When I asked about her current housing, she said only, “It’s not a good situation.”

Brown had spent a month visiting D.C. government agencies, looking for guidance on how to regain her identification without success. A nonprofit steered her to Foundry, where she hoped to secure the trinity of documents she needed: her birth certificate, a Social Security card and a valid, government-issued photo ID. Like many of the other people who visit Foundry, she was, by the time she arrived, frustrated and desperate.
Quote:
Without obstacles, the ID process could take about two weeks, but for many clients, he says, it lasts two to three months. “It mostly has to do with finding the time, energy and motivation to go to places and be told, ‘No,’ constantly,” he explains.
idk why poor people can't just go get IDs in response to ID laws, seems easy

Quote:
First, a person like Brown who had no documents would need a physical exam and a signed medical record. (There was a free clinic in Adams Morgan.) The signed medical record would allow her to get a Social Security card, which would be mailed to her within two weeks. She would then have to take the card and a Foundry check for $23 to the District’s Vital Records office to get her birth certificate. Vital Records could issue it based on the card alone, but the office reserves the right for its staff to request more documents to establish identity. Without a valid photo ID, the office recommends three original documents, among them: census records, probation papers, voter registration and an employee ID. Once she had the Social Security card and birth certificate, then she could go to the Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV requires proof of residency. Utility bills, leases and mortgages count among the qualifying documents. Without one in her name, Brown would need her host to supply a document to the DMV, with a photocopy of a valid ID and a signed form allowing Brown to claim the address. Otherwise, Brown would have to visit one of a handful of approved nonprofits or the D.C. Department of Human Services to be certified as homeless. Only then could she get her ID, which costs $20, and which Foundry also covers.

Brown rested her head on her fist. “I remember a time when it was real easy to do this,” she said. The volunteer nodded in commiseration and handed Brown a proof-of-residency form. Brown said, her voice trembling, “You’ll probably have to go through the homeless verification process.” She left with two envelopes full of instructions, forms and checks.

Later, when I called the number where Brown said she was staying, another woman answered. She had no idea where Brown had gone, she told me and, furthermore, didn’t care.
Oh.

Re: The GOP war on voting

It's one thing when people are too ****ing dense to understand how the current attempts at ID are structurally racist, but they're literally just unregistering tens of thousands of legal voters on Fridays before heated elections like this special Georgia Ossoff election

https://www.democracynow.org/2017/6/...er_suppression

I mean, this is what crisis looks like. And the major news outlets are ****ing silent, which... this is what crisis looks like.

If a person has not voted in the last 6 years, OH automatically removes them from the voter registration. They must re-register.

Re: The GOP war on voting

Yeah Georgia is STEALING this election as we speak. And the media is gonna be like "well guess black people couldn't be bothered to turn out to vote LOL." They won't take a serious look at voter suppression because it undermines their both-sidesism and shows that really one party actually cares about democracy in the slightest. It also shows how our country structurally and systemically attacks the rights of black voters, and mass media doesn't like to show that stuff too much.
