  • Interesting story coming out of Texas about voter fraud

    An interesting story out of Texas. After the November election, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (a Republican) offered an award of up to one million dollars to any person who uncovered evidence of voter fraud. Well, Patrick just made his first payment. It was made to a Democrat in Pennsylvania, who received $25,000 for proving that a registered Republican tried to vote twice. After casting a legal vote, Ralph Thurman apparently put on sunglasses and a baseball cap and tried to vote a second time. Fortunately, a poll worker named Eric Frank saw through Thurman's clever disguise and reported him to the authorities.

    This is easy money. I wonder why more Americans haven't come forward with evidence of election fraud.

    https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/22/polit...ard/index.html

    I conclude with a quote from Trump:

    “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again."

    Turns out Trump was right...

    This proves that living Republicans are nowhere NEAR as good at cheating as dead Democrats.
    The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

      Because the way our elections are rigged, voter fraud is difficult to prevent and almost impossible to prove, and Democrats have fought like cornered rats for years to keep it that way.
      Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
      But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
      Than a fool in the eyes of God

        You could be right about Republicans being bad at cheating. Trump told his followers that, if they want to vote more than once, they need to change both their shirt and hat on each attempt. Well, Ralph Thurman apparently thought he could ignore Trump's advice, and he instead put on a hat and sunglasses.

        Since he refused to change his shirt, it is no wonder Thurman got caught. And it probably didn't help that he went to the exact same poll worker who had taken his legal ballot just minutes before.

        Clearly, the Democrats MUST be good at cheating, since Trump and his followers have been unable to uncover any significant fraud despite many lawsuits and election audits..

          Here's the problem with that logic --- what you call "significant fraud". We have videos, for instance, of people with bunches of filled out ballots on their dashboard, but 'having them' is not a prosecutable offense. Somebody needs to actually catch them putting them in a box. That's pretty hard where you have unattended or unmonitored collection boxes.

            Does this mean you actually buy into the "massive voter fraud" in the 2020 election 'narrative'?
            My 'faith' designation is 'Christian'. But I do not want the label "Christian" leading to mockery of faith in Christ. Consequently, I apologize if words of mine written in this post or others reflect poorly on the what Faith in Christ means, or what Faith in Christ can in fact do in terms of bringing Grace, Mercy, and Love into the world.

                      It would appear from the link in the OP that Republicans are not averse to trying to register the dead to vote.

                      a man in Delaware County in May was sentenced to five years probation after pleading guilty to casting a vote in the name of his deceased mother in an effort to reelect then-President Donald Trump.

                          I'm just tired of your extreme partisanship, Jim.

                            Nah, I'm just another American concerned about attempts to steal the election.

                            Ahead of Jan. 6, Willard hotel in downtown D.C. was a Trump team ‘command center’ for effort to deny Biden the presidency
                            .
                            On Jan. 2, Trump, Giuliani and Eastman spoke to 300 state legislators via a conference call meant to arm them with purported evidence of fraud and galvanize them to take action to “decertify” their election results. “You are the real power,” Trump told the state lawmakers, according to a Washington Examiner report. “You’re the ones that are going to make the decision.”

                              I pay no attention to that, and I have not been involved in the whole "steal" thing.

                              ETA: This is interesting... I wondered who documented this "private call", and that article includes the line...
