Wendy Rosen - The Candidate Who Took Vote Early Vote Often Literally

One of the key items on the Republican platform is to reduce voter fraud.  Republicans ask that simple measures be taken to have the voter identify themselves before they vote.  Democrats, on the other hand, say that this is racist and will suppress voter turnout of minorities.  Apparently minorities don't want you to know who they are.  Additionally, Democrats say that voter fraud is rare and should not be a concern. Well, we turned that on its head this week.

Maryland first district candidate Wendy Rosen had to withdraw her candidacy for Congresswoman as someone uncovered the fact that she has voted twice in previous elections in 2006 and 2008.  Each time she voted in both Florida and Maryland.

Does anyone else see the irony here?  This is probably the highest profile voter fraud event in recent history in Maryland and it was committed not only by a Democrat, but one running for Congress.  I suspect that Democrats will quickly cry that Republicans are now trying to suppress the female vote.  We all know Republicans hate vaginas and women and want to put everyone back in chains (thank you Crazy Ole Uncle Joe Biden for that soundbite!).

All indications are that the Democrats will quickly replace Rosen as the Democratic candidate in the 1st District, but odds are slim that whomever they choose will be able to defeat Republican incumbent Andy Harris.  Perhaps they will choose Frank Kratovil to run against Harris for a third time.

The Maryland Republican party released a statement that included this amusing statement:

 I'm sure this means they will join us in an effort to purge the rolls across Maryland of illegal immigrants, the deceased, and those otherwise unqualified to vote.

Everyone knows that Parris Glendening won the election for Governor by captures 100% of the dead vote in Baltimore City.  And Martin O'Malley loves illegal immigrants.  So we don't want to purge them from the voter registration logs.  Since the Glendening incident, the Maryland Republican party has been an advocate of voting reform.  Democrats, on the other hand, have pushed for changes that invite more opportunities for voter fraud.  We can now vote early and in districts that are not our own.  How does the Board of Elections monitor this?  No one seems to know.

So, given this recent event, do you think that requiring voters to identify themselves is a legitimate request?

Absolutely a legitimate, and just plain common sense request.

Anyone who isn't on board with the idea of voter id is basically condoning and supporting cheating during a vote.

I have to present ID to get into the building I've worked in for 9 years. I had to present 2 FORMS of ID when I went to take a professional licensing exam!

Do a YouTube search for "US Attorney General Eric Holder's Ballot to Vote Offered to Total Stranger" A perfect example of how screwed up our voting system can be and how completely ignorant and ridiculous some Democrats can be.
