My latest piece is up at Pajamas Media: Against Voter Fraud Protests, Worcester Mayor Plays the Race Card
Community organizing strikes again. Also read J. Christian Adams’ Tatler post about Neighbor to Neighbor’s vote fraud.
Scandalous. Word is in that, at a meeting of the Election Commission Thursday night concerning the massive voting irregularities witnessed by volunteer poll observers this past November (see my “Massive Voting Fraud Reported in Massachusetts“), Worcester Mayor Joseph O’Brien (D) said of those citizens who had volunteered their time and reported in all good conscience on what they saw:
These losers apparently don’t like advocate groups like Neighbor to Neighbor because NTN supports people of low income, minorities, whose skin color isn’t the same as ours. (emphasis added)
This is the treatment that the volunteer overseer of democracy can expect from elected officials for his or her efforts.
As I reported previously, voting had hardly begun in Worcester, an urban area west of Boston, before word began coming in of questionable activity, mostly centered around community organizing group Neighbor to Neighbor, or N2N. N2N workers were escorting voters in to the polling places and pointing to the boxes on the ballot the voter was to choose. They were accompanying voters in to the booth as “translators” even though the ballots had Spanish translation. As one volunteer observer noted:
The machine for the visually impaired speaks Spanish, no help needed. I saw food exchange hands in return for the vote. Collecting people at the food pantry, posting ballots on car windshields. Ballots prefilled out brought in as guides to voting, helpers actually voting for the person. One person — I am sure a helper — voted at least 20 times! (emphasis added)
While many in the leftist establishment undoubtedly hoped that the events of last November would disappear down the memory hole when the carpets were rolled up after election day, and the volunteers all went back to their day jobs, that simply hasn’t been the case…
