OT-PROOF of FIXED elections in South Carolina republican primary

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

A controversy erupted when McCain supporters in Greenville County said that 21 polling precincts in predominantly minority areas were closed without warning by the Republican Party.

McCain aides said that when their poll workers showed up, the precincts were closed. The county party, run by a Bush supporter, said they did not have enough people to staff the voting booths.

Black legislators went to court this week to force the Republican Party to open polling places in all areas of the state including black neighborhoods. In past primaries, the party has not bothered to open precincts in some black neighborhoods. The case was dropped after the party promised to do so.

"There should be a complete investigation. I think it was clear the court has already settled this. It's very disappointing," McCain told reporters on his campaign bus.

from Drudge....this Bush is a real "son of a bitch"!

How is this proof of fixed elections. It might point to incompetence in the way the South Carolina GOP primaries are conducted, but how doe sit prove the elections are fixed?

Let's try this again...

Legistlators went to court to make sure all republicans could vote in the primary.

When McCain workers went to the polls that were to be opened as a result of these court hearings, those polls were closed.

To translate into the vernacular...."The crooked, racist Bush crackers down there in Dixie are keeping the niggers from voting". And that, my "comrade" is part of how you fix an election. I'm sure they're working overtime on the 2-way modem voting machines today, but what happened with closed polling stations in McCain-positive areas is verifiable!

I understand his great great great great great grandfather was an OK guy after they hung him. He seems to come from a long line of snakes. have you noticed he doesn't blink.

Ah, for the good old days back on the North Side of Chicago. A few bricks in the back of the voting machine and no one knew the difference. Or, a few bags of the paper ballots, "got lost" enroute for counting. Those were the days.

The Chicago Machine knew how to run things then.

Poor crooks in So. Carolina ain't got a clue. Now who would be suspicious of polling locations being shut down during an election? They must have jello for brains.

Look, if voting really mattered, it would be illegal anyway. This is just the big boys arguing about who gets to be in charge of us peons. Harvey

Think this through::: IF they would have fixed the election don't you think the talking heads would be all over this???

If they did maybe that's what is needed to rid us of the current delusionary people in charge now. Look what H. did to the travel office, imagine what she would do to the piano player in a whore house??????????/

The literary allusion being "don't shoot me, I'm only the piano player" and that opens up another can of worms.

If God had intended for us to vote He would have given us candidates.

When a liberal Democrate ( Boxer ?) STOLE the election from Bob Dornan in CA ,by people voting 5-7 times in different districts , AND it was PROVEN in court ,they DID NOT reverse the election results ! That's the last time I voted , and I won't waste my time again ! My first vote was for Truman in 48 . Basicly voted Republican ever since , and ran for office too. That was an eye-opener to how crooked politics really are . Eagle

Black legislators went to court this week to force the Republican Party to open polling places in all areas of the state including black neighborhoods. And since when do black districts EVER, vote Republican...LOL!!!

-- WhoMe (WhoMe@nowhere.none), February 19, 2000.

Let's go over this again. This was an open primary. Anyone could vote in it, no matter what party they were. Believe it or not, some of us darkies vote republican. Laugh out loud my ass.

-- INever (INevercheckmy@onebox.com), February 20, 2000.

Please note, "INever", I said districts, not individuals! I do know there are several black individuals who do vote Republican here in the Houston area, but they are few and far between...

LOL, indeed!
