And So It Begins: Military Ballots Being Tossed in Fairfax County, VA

Marc Ambinder at Gay Gossip Site and Antisemitic Conspiracy Newsletter The Atlantic:

Military ballots are being tossed in Fairfax Co, VA because of a “technicality.” Not a lot of them compared to the size of the electorate, but more than a few.

The registrar of voters in a Democrat. He thinks it “stinks,” but the law is the law.


Fairfax general registrar Rokey Suleman said Thursday that he has had to reject some of the ballots because of a Virginia law passed in 2002. That law -- then called Senate Bill 113, sponsored by then state Sen. Bill Bolling – requires that when an overseas citizen wants to request an absentee ballot and cast a vote with the same paperwork, it requires not only a witness signature but also the current address of the witness.


The McCain campaign said there’s not even a space for the witness to list an address. Suleman agreed; he said the federal document was changed in recent years and the space for the witness address was removed. But the Virginia law hasn’t changed.


Democrats insist they’re biased towards access... so will they try to intervene on behalf of these voters?

Um, no.

Incidentally, a quickie law could fix this.

But they won't do it.

Are Virginia Registrars Hard-Assed on Every Point? Answer: NO.

Not if you're a likely Obama voter.

In that case, Democratic registrars are "easing" the rules (that is, breaking the law) by allowing non-resident college students to cast votes in swing state Virginia, despite the typical law that voters must have a permanent abode in the state.

And who pressured them to do this? Well, the Obama campaign, among others.

Think he'll make a call regarding our soldiers based overseas?

More: As usual, it gets worse. This in from Fairfax Phantom.

Fairfax county's just enforcing the law in this election, eh?

Their boss, Fairfax County supervisor Gerry Connolly is RUNNING FOR CONGRESS AS A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT!!!!!!!

And then he came out for maintaining Fairfax County's sanctuary county policy toward illegal aliens and called those who disagree with him racist.

And now his employees JUST HAPPEN to rule against military voters while Connolly is running for Congress?

It Gets Worse: The drive to sign up convicts to vote?

That was this guy too. He sent his henchmen right into the fucking prisons to get convicts to vote.

Convicts and out of state college kids can vote. Heroes can't.
