UN Election Monitors II

Yesterday morning, I posted this. Just now, they did a report on FNC about it. Seems most of the elected officials that requested the UN to monitor our election are members of the Black Cacaus. For the UN's part, they say they only monitor elections at the request of the Executive branch.

One other tidbit from the report: the Dems have already hired teams of lawyers to monitor election sites across the country. To me that means they'll do their best to intimidate people, disenfranchise those that aren't voting for Kerry, and make sure military votes aren't counted like last time.

I sure hope the Republicans have their own teams to counter these.

Later: they are all Dems, according to the news I'm hearing now. Gee, what a surprise!!

Also, it would take about 20,000 foreigners to monitor our elections.

Not likely, Ith. The GOP tends to be too !@#$%^&* polite about election fraud, that perennial Democratic specialty. In 1960, the Democrats literally stole the Presidency with election fraud in Illinois (Daley) and Texas (Lyndon Johnson's domain), and Richard Nixon refused to allow the Republican Party even to lodge a protest.

On the whole, I suppose I prefer that to having two parties dedicated to election fraud.

That's what I was afraid of. Wasn't there voter fraud in the last South Dakota election on the Indian reservations? and the Republican didn't protest officially?
