The case was thrown to the Governmental Accountability Board of the State of Wisconsin, which is packed with libs, and their leader Kevin Kennedy rounded about on critics of the conduct of the election, stating that their complaints bring the validity of Wisconsin's elections into question. The GAB has at every turn, in every decision, favored liberals."

America the vulnerable - September 26, 2012

"The Government Accountability Institute (GAI or “the Institute”) conducted an extensive eight month investigation into the potential for foreign and fraudulent online campaign donations to influence House, Senate, and presidential elections. The findings are alarming. As FBI surveillance tapes have previously shown, foreign governments understand and are eager to exploit the weaknesses of American campaigns. This, combined with the Internet’s ability to disintermediate campaign contributions on a mass scale, as well as outmoded and lax Federal Election Commission rules, make U.S. elections vulnerable to foreign influence."

Foreign election officials amazed by U.S. system - November 6, 2012

"The most often noted difference between American elections among the visitors was that in most U.S. states, voters need no identification.

Ballots unlikely to reach military voters in time - November 5, 2012

"“DoD’s failure to fix this longstanding problem means that the blank ballots of thousands of overseas service members, as well as some who have recently returned from overseas, could be currently trapped in an archaic and inefficient mail forwarding system,” the senators wrote. “These ballots are unlikely to reach these service members until after Election Day has passed.""

Military voters still face trouble - October 20, 2012

"congressional Republicans have hammered the Pentagon for not following through on the requirements outlined in the 2009 legislation, leaving thousands of military personnel unable to cast their vote. The military vote tends to sway Republican, and with recent polls showing President Obama and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in a virtual dead heat, strong voter turnout by American service members could be the difference between a second term for Obama or a Romney White House. But in September, an investigation by the Pentagon's Inspector General found that numerous attempts to reach out to voter assistance offices on military bases overseas went unheeded."

Threatening letters to election watch groups - October 17, 2012

Fraud is an issue as absentee voting rises - October 6, 2012

"In four Western states, voting by mail is the exclusive or dominant way to cast a ballot. The trend will probably result in more uncounted votes, and it increases the potential for fraud.

Obama lost in every state with photo ID law - November 7, 2012

"Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed. Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected. Curiously, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. A list of closely contested state elections with no voter ID, which narrowly went to Obama include: Minnesota (10), Iowa (6), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5) and Pennsylvania (20). This amounts to a total of 66 electoral votes. When added to Romney’s total of 205 electoral votes, that would give Romney 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida."

Uses state dinner as campaign prop - March 15, 2012

"The decision to whisk David Cameron off to a heavily televised college basketball game in Ohio, which just happens to be a crucial swing state, was both manipulative and demeaning, and should have been vetoed by Cameron’s advisers as inappropriate in an election year. But the use of an official state dinner at the White House to reward major campaign donors is even worse."

Administration rubber-stamping visas - January 3, 2012

"Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents..."

Holder's voter ID fraud - December 23, 2011

"The Obama Administration's re-election mobilization continues: Witness Eric Holder's attempt to play the race card and perhaps twist the law in a campaign against voter identification laws."

ACORN lobbying White House - December 8, 2011

"Leaders of the resurrected radical group ACORN are lobbying the Obama administration in what appears to be a concerted effort to game the electoral system to help Democrats, new evidence suggests. At least five Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now leaders have visited the White House this year alone."

Obama's ties to corrupt Project Vote - November 28, 2011

"When an incumbent’s prospect of reelection looks shaky, his temptation to take advantage of holes in the security of our election process is the greatest — especially if he believes he can engage in fraud without being detected. Should we be worried over President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign given his prior connections to Project Vote?"

2010 election cycle

Obama used DOE money to help Reid campaign - October 31, 2012

"President Obama claims that political considerations did not influence the Energy Department’s green energy loan program, but newly-released internal emails show that his administration subsidized Nevada companies in order to help Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., win his 2010 reelection campaign."

Holder AWOL on military voting - October 1, 2010

"The Justice Department is living down to its reputation for not caring about protecting voting rights of military personnel. With 20 full-time attorneys supposedly on the task, it has failed to do as much for military voters as a ragtag team of volunteer law students has accomplished. The department's inaction is suspicious."

DOJ enabling voter fraud? - September 24, 2010

"Maryland, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Oregon, ...Tennessee... Indiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Kentucky now have more registered voters than people of voting age."

Doing the DOJ’s job for them - September 7, 2010

"As the saying goes: if you want a job done right, you have to do it yourself. If Americans don’t want dead and ineligible felons participating in elections, they will have to clean up the mess themselves, as Attorney General Eric Holder won’t do his job by enforcing the integrity protections in the “Motor Voter” law passed in 1993."

Military voters soon to be disenfranchised - July 20, 2010

"Yet the primary entity responsible for protecting military voters, the Voting Section, decided not to pursue those states even though federal law (i.e., the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act) gave the section wide latitude to protect military voters."

2008 election cycle

Documentary about Obama stealing nomination - undated

"We believe The Democratic National Committee (DNC) made a grave error by depriving American voters of their choice of Hillary Clinton as Democratic nominee. Senator Clinton, by all accounts, except caucuses, won the Primary Election and, therefore, should be the 2008 Democratic Nominee. That didn't happen, due largely to illegitimate and illegal acts. We have interviews of many accounts from caucus states recounting threats, intimidation, lies, stolen documents, falsified documents, busing in voters in exchange for paying for "dinners," etc. There are at least 2000 complaints, in Texas alone, of irregularities directed towards the Obama Campaign..."

Obama manipulated election, took money from Russia - February 27, 2012

"First, the Democratic Party engaged in election tampering, a felony, by stuffing ballot boxes in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Second, the Democratic Party paid Jessie Jackson six figures to keep his mouth shut about political issues during the 2008 campaign. It was widely known at the time that Jackson had no use for Obama. And third, Russian money went to the campaign of Barack Obama much as Chinese money went to the campaign of Bill Clinton during the 1990s."

Hillary backers decry massive vote fraud - October 27, 2008

"Already in Iowa, the Obama campaign was breaking the rules, busing in supporters from neighboring states to vote illegally in the first contest in the primaries and physically intimidating Hillary supporters, they say. Obama’s surprisingly strong win in Iowa, which defied all the polls, propelled his upstart candidacy to front-runner status. But Lynette Long, a Hillary supporter from Bethesda, Md., who has a long and respected academic career, believes Obama’s victory in Iowa and in 12 other caucus states was no miracle. “It was fraud,” she told Newsmax."

J.P. Travis columns about election fairness

Quick dirty review of 2012 election fraud - December 22, 2012

"It’s forty six days past Election Day and we’re starting to get a feel for how much cheating, fraud, and dirty trickery there was in this year’s election. As expected, it was pretty bad..."

Sputtering, misfiring, broken old democracy - May 19, 2012

"I spent the last couple days updating one of the pages at – specifically the page dedicated to election fraud. It was depressing work. The election system in this country is a mess..."

Election fraud 2010 - October 30, 2010

"Here’s your scary thought for Halloween tomorrow: on Tuesday, Democrats will poll ten to twenty percent higher in official election results than the legitimate number of votes cast for them."

60-40 - December 23, 2009

"You need a minimum of sixty votes for cloture in the U.S. Senate, so even one vote fewer and the American people would remain unencumbered by this onerous infringement upon God-given freedom. But, hey, that’s democracy, right? The Democrats won the last election, that’s why they have those sixty votes, so this is the will of the people, right?"

Democracy in the United States - Part 3 - November 7, 2009

"Does the U.S. have “fraud-free voting” and “honest vote counting?” Pshaw. One word says it all: ACORN."

Democracy in the United States - Part 2 - November 6, 2009

"Pretend that a man – lowlife by nature – was made a senator based upon nothing but family connections..."

Democracy in the United States - Part 1 - October 22, 2009

"Do we live in a democratic nation?"

Gregoire and the 2004 Washington election - May 21, 2009

"The 2004 election was a crooked election and she accepted her crooked victory. That makes her a crook."

August 2, 2013 - Read [this] link - this person used voter ID not only to vote in 2 elections, but also to create the illusion of legal presence. Here in 2013 now, no action has been taken despite her conviction... not a day of jail time served and only $415 of court costs to be paid. (For a Class 5 Felony) We continually REWARD aliens that break our laws, and give them more privileges than native citizens. I just wish you would post mugshots here. - Pete, Ohio
J.P. replies: I share your obvious frustration.

September 29, 2012 - Will you be posting the voter registration fraud currently in the news from Florida? - Pat, Washington
J.P. replies: You're referring to this: 10 Fla. counties report suspicious GOP voter sign-ups. The answer to your question is no, I won't be including that situation in my list because it's a Republican mess and Republicans don't systematically engage in election fraud like Democrats do. Notice it was the GOP itself who reported the contractor to state authorities... and fired the contractor. By contrast, the Democrat Party is STILL using ACORN after dozens of election fraud convictions around the country.

November 5, 2011 - I live in NY and I am very very concerned about voter fraud next year. Who can I contact about this? - Millicent W., New York
J.P. replies: Millicent, if you look at the top of this page, you will see a cartoon of a line of voters in front of an American flag. If you click on the flag it will take you to a list of Internet resources for Americans who want to fight election fraud. Good luck.
