...at least 341 convicted felons in largely Democratic Minneapolis-St. Paul voted illegally in the 2008 Senate race between Franken, a Democrat, and his Republican opponent, then-incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman.It was obvious at the time that Democratic Party officials in charge of the recount were not serious about disqualifying illegal votes for Franken. And the same attitude is found in Democratic Party voting officials around the country. In other words, this time it was Minnesota, tomorrow it may be your state.
The final recount vote in the race, determined six months after Election Day, showed Franken beat Coleman by 312 votes -- fewer votes than the number of felons whose illegal ballots were counted, according to Minnesota Majority's newly released study, which matched publicly available conviction lists with voting records.
Furthermore, the report charges that efforts to get state and federal authorities to act on its findings have been "stonewalled."
"We aren't trying to change the result of the last election. That legally can't be done," said Dan McGrath, Minnesota Majority's executive director. "We are just trying to make sure the integrity of the next election isn't compromised." _FN
The US Democratic Party is joined at the hip and the head to the US labour movement. But the US labour movement is joined at the lips and the anus to organised crime in the US and elsewhere. In other words, it is not just an embarrassing coincidence that Democratic Party officials and elected representatives in Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Detroit, and elsewhere have proven ties to organised crime. It is simply how things are done when you are a Democrat.
Not that Al Fin has any fondness for Republicans or the Republican Party. The GOP has its own faults and crooked kinks. Just not the type that is likely to get you beaten up and sent to sleep with the fishes.
ACORN, the New Black Panther Party, violent elements of the Nation of Islam, various hispanic separatist movements and pro-illegal immigration movements, pro-jihad Islamic organisations, etc. may as well be thrown into the mix -- at least for this particular administration. If it has a violent history, it is probably in bed with the One, and his buddy Sen. Franken.
