Vote Harvesting: Dem’s Latest Plan for Fraud

2018 December 2

The Democrats learned long ago that the looser voting laws are, the easier it is to commit voter fraud and steal elections. “Motor-voter” registration, same-day registration, not requiring proof of citizenship to register or identification to vote, etc.

The Dem’s latest scam in California is “vote harvesting.” Under recently-enacted legislation, anyone can pick up absentee ballots and deliver them to the local election official’s office. Previously the ballot had to be mailed in or delivered by a relative.

Think of the possibilities for fraud. What’s to prevent people (e.g. Democrats) from printing election materials  (ballots, envelopes, etc.), completing them in the name of people who don’t normally vote and delivering them to election officials. This is only necessary in toss-up elections where 4,000 – 5,000 fraudulent votes can steal an election.

As the polls closed on election day last month, six California Republican House candidates, including Representatives Dana Rohrabacher, Steve Knight, and Mimi Walters, were ahead in their respective races. However, as the absentee and provisional ballots rolled in over the intervening weeks, all six lost to their Democratic opponents.

The case of Korean-American GOP candidate Young Kim was one of the most prominent examples. On election night, Kim held an 8,000 vote lead over her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros, and even attended freshman orientation in Washington, D.C. before watching her lead, and her victory, slowly evaporate over the subsequent weeks.

The results drew the attention of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“California just defies logic to me,” said Ryan at a Washington Post live event. “We were only down 26 seats the night of the election, and three weeks later, we lost basically every California contested race. This election system they have — I can’t begin to understand what ‘ballot harvesting’ is.”

The stunning turnaround in California, of all states, can be attributed to several factors, as conservative critics like The Federalist’s Bre Payton wrote, but the most significant of those seemed to be the practice of “ballot harvesting.”

Passed as a barely noticed change in the state’s vote by mail procedures in 2016 and signed by then-Governor Jerry Brown, California’s AB 1921 allows voters to give any third party — not just a relative or someone living in the same household, as was previously the law — to collect and turn in anyone else’s completed ballot.

Called “ballot harvesting,” critics say the practice is ripe for fraud. Consider “Lulu,” who was recorded trying to “harvest” what she thought was a Democratic voter’s ballot in Rep. Knight’s district.

    You know voter fraud is blatant when even Paul Ryan can figure it out.

    Why do we need to “harvest” votes when the government indoctrination centers, when they are not actually killing children, are churning out useful idiots by the millions?

    “the trend toward ever larger and more intrusive big government that started in the Progressive Era around 1916, hadn’t yet weighed down the economy to the extent that two incomes were needed to support a family in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Yet, government grows steadily under progressive ideology, and after the twin shocks of the Great Society and the Vietnam War, by the 1970’s stagflation kicked in and it became increasingly difficult to support a family with one income. Married women, whether they liked it or not or were under the sway of feminist ideology, were pushed into the labor market if only to have most of their wages seized to pay the dozens of taxes the family must pay.

    The take-home pay of many women is barely more than the family’s total tax bill.

    Ironically, “women’s lib” ended up converting women from baby factories into full-time tax livestock.

    It gets worse. After five years of being raised by strangers and deprived of maternal care, 90% of American youth are compelled to attend government schools for 12-13 years. As I explained in my book, Government Schools are Bad for Your Kids, government schools are rife with crime, drugs, promiscuity, mediocre education and political propaganda.

    Next comes college for about 70% of Americans. While many young people thrive in college, many others graduate with huge debt and poor job prospects and a hard left ideology poorly suited for success in life.

    Leftism teaches resentment of others, inculcates a victim mentality and teaches some students to hate their skin color while teaching others to blame the skin color of others for the difficulties they will face in life.

    Leftism does not inculcate the positive thinking, initiative, work ethic and perseverance in the face of adversity which are the hallmarks of successful people.”

    I would hazard this is exactly where DJT is at right now.

    Wylie –

    Unfortunately, education, the media, the courts (although Trump is working to change that) and the government bureaucracy.

    Nowhere is education worse than at the college level where free speech is labeled “hate speech” and speakers with opposing views are banned.

    the scary thing about Ballot Harvesting, beyond the obvious, is that it is fraud in broad daylight.

    My analogy of a movie about kidnapping fits here. In such movies the kidnap victim knows that the ONLY reason for the kidnapper to keep their face hidden would be if they intend to release them. BUT, if the kidnapper show the victim their face…it is game over for the victim.

    Ballot Harvesting is the Democrats saying, in Kalifornia at least, we can do WHATEVER we like, and you CANNOT stop us!! And they are right.

    there are virtually NO controls on ‘Ballot Harvesting’…none. And what few controls there are, are managed by Democrats.

    That’s why you can forget your dream of Jefferson. The way the Dems control Kalifornia, they would divide the state so there would be six Democratic senators instead of two.

    A dog lover, whose female dog came “in heat,” was concerned about keeping it and her male separated. But, she had a large house and she believed that she could keep the two dogs apart.
    However, as she was drifting off to sleep, she heard awful howling and moaning sounds. She rushed downstairs and found the dogs locked together and unable to disengage, as frequently happens when dogs mate.

    Unable to separate them; perplexed as to what to do next, although it was very late at night, she called her vet, who answered in a very grumpy voice.

    After she explained the problem to him, the vet said, “Hang up the phone and place it down alongside the dogs.

    I will then call you back and the noise of the ringing will make the male lose his erection and he will be able to withdraw.”

    “Do you think that will work?” she asked.

    “Just worked for me.” he replied.

    Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy than Macron.

    Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Austria, Slovakia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Estonia and now France. The dominoes are starting to fall.

    Don’t these fools realize that bureaucrats in Brussels know what’s best for them – higher taxes, an EU Army to enforce the elites’ will and more Muslims, lots more Muslims

    America’s most dangerous city? Woman stabbed to death in Baltimore stopping to give beggar money:

    These days Detroit could be behind Baltimore, Chicago and St. Louis. Man, I hate competition.

    Yep looks like the Frogs finally figured out they are not in a sauna but are the main course.


    If you were to compare on a per population basis the murder rate in Baltimore is higher than Chicago. Chicago gets all the press by the sheer number of murders and assault that are committed on a weekly basis.

    In convicting Cohen, has Meuller delivered the DJT get-out-of-jail card? — — And the pardons write themselves…

    Easy come, easy go.

    Remember how Republicans in Alaska last week won entire control of the State Government because of winning a seat by 1 Vote?
    Guess again
    ‘Mystery’ ballot rejected, crucial Alaska contest separated by one vote

    6 – Been delayed to 2020, same in GA. 😉

    We have a state legislature seat here in GA that has just been ordered to have a Re-Do..because there is 3 vote difference in margin\count, and inside that count are already dozens of questionable ballots arriving late. Judge has said enough – have a do-over.

    14 – You are behind St.Louis this year, ranked “least safe” city in the nation (apparently they used more than just pure crime rate stats), don’t worry though Detroit was still close in the running.
