  1. I took the time to learn a bit more about you. Very impressive. This brings me to my question regarding why, other than West, voter fraud seems to have suddenly become a non issue. I’m not going to make wild accusations, but I predicted earlier that without an overwhelming Romney victory the possibility that the election would be stolen and Obama re-elected to a second term was significant.

    Comments as to why the issue seems to have generally disappeared at the national level?

  2. #1, thx for the nice words.

    “the issue seems to have generally disappeared at the national level” only because the establishment press doesn’t believe it’s an issue, and no amount of James O’Keefe exposure will apparently convince them otherwise. Even UN observers couldn’t believe that some states don’t require photo ID.

    A fair amount of voter fraud, as widely defined to include deliberately excluding and suppressing votes (e.g., the military) occurred in this election.

  3. Thanks for your response. I see there is an article on Townhall about the West problem in Florida, but I just don’t see that as enough. I’ll probably write an article on the subject, not the reason for this comment, but I am a small fish in a very large pond. How can Republicans retain any respect if they are not willing to fight back on this issue which is absolutely fundamental? How many “blue” areas had turnout exceeding 100%? Just look at the data in your home state of Ohio. All else is a distraction, if we can’t even fight for the sanctity of the voting process. What is the point in voting, if the party won’t even make sure my vote counts?
    Thanks…just hoping you, or others, will make this an issue…a real issue…an issue which will not just go away until the next time we lose for the very same reason.

  4. If it makes you feel any better, I don’t believe that the True the Vote people are going to be letting up any time soon.
