Democrat votes that defy logic and experience
Democrats say America doesn't need voter identification laws because there's no evidence of election cheating. But when a candidate doesn't get a single vote in 59 precincts, you've got to wonder.
One candidate did just that last week in Philadelphia, where Mitt Romney was shut out 19,605-0 in 59 voting divisions.Theses are the kind of results you could expect in Saddam's Iraq or in North Korea, but outside the axis of evil the chances of this kind of vote total are remote. We need to stop Democrat election theft and it will probably take more than voter ID to do it.
The Obama Justice Department might not be concerned about that, but one man who studies voting patterns is dubious. University of Virginia political scientist Larry Sabato told the Philadelphia Inquirer that it deserves scrutiny.
"Not a single vote for Romney or even an error?" he asked. "That's worth looking into."
Philadelphia is also where 75 legal and credentialed Republican election workers were blocked or removed from the polls on Election Day. And Pennsylvania is the Democratic state where a duly legislated voter ID law was blocked by a judge for the 2012 election.
Romney was similarly blanked in nine precincts in nationally pivotal and heavily Democratic Cuyahoga County, Ohio, centered on Cleveland, where he did even worse than third-party candidates.
Seem impossible? Yes, it does. And that's not just our opinion. Rich Exner, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's data analysis editor, said he doesn't find the shutout credible.
Equally as implausible were the turnouts in Democratic strongholds that either exceeded the number of registered voters or the voting-age population.
It's possible for voter participation to exceed the number of registered voters — new residents and unregistered voters can register on Election Day and vote. But it's unlikely when the average voter turnout has been 64% in the last two presidential contests.
Yet that happened in, yes, Pennsylvania, where Republican Gov. Tom Corbett has complained that some precincts voted at more than 100%.
Even more unlikely is turnout surpassing the voter-age population. But that happened in two counties in Colorado, a state won by Obama.
