Stop the presses! I mean it. Stop the election!
Something is going on in Washington and California that will have a great impact on tomorrow’s election — and it stinks to high heaven.
Let me start by telling you how I found out about it.Do I even have to tell you how wrong this is? This is an unregistered hispanic NON-CITIZEN! This person can now just show up and vote!
A very good friend of mine, who shall remain nameless, has a long-time live-in housekeeper from Guatemala. The housekeeper has a daughter who just turned 18. The immigration status of both mother and daughter has been pending for years. Papers have been filed with the Immigration and Naturalization Service. Hearings have been held. But they are not citizens.
This is very important: The daughter has not registered to vote.
But, a few days ago, the 18-year-old got a very attractively packaged “Dear friend” letter from Bill Clinton, paid for by the California Democratic Party.
Here’s what it said (on one side in Spanish and on the other side in English): “While every election is important, the November 7th election will determine our future for the next decade, and beyond. The stakes are high for America’s Latino families. And California is the critical battleground.
“That’s why I’m writing. We need your help to elect a Democratic Congress.
“Despite our strong economy, many hard-working people still struggle to make ends meet. Quality, affordable health care, a world-class education, aging with dignity, and well-paid jobs are part of the American dream — rather than an American reality — for too many people.
“Electing a Democratic Congress is essential for our ‘Families First’ legislative agenda.
“Congratulations on your decision to register. Registering to vote is a basic responsibility of citizenship that far too many people ignore.
“Now that you are registered …
* “Can I count on you to vote Democratic on November 7th?
* “Will you make an extra effort to elect Democrats to Congress — and to your State Legislature — by talking to your family, friends and neighbors?
“Remember: Your Vote is Your Voice.
“Su Voz, Es Su Voto. Make your voice heard on Election Day.
“Sincerely, President Bill Clinton”
Below that letter is a P.S. that explains: “Here is your personal Voter Identification Card. Sign your name, then detach your card. Bring your card with you to your polling place on Election Day. It will help your voting go more smoothly.”
Apparently all the recipient needs to do with this Voter Identification Card is sign it to be eligible to vote. Keep in mind, this was sent to a previously unregistered voter.
As my friend points out, only the U.S. government knows her age and pending residency status, and, obviously her Latino background. How did this information wind up in the partisan political hands of the California Democratic Party? And what kind of impact will a mailing like this — obviously utilizing a government database for political purposes — have on the California legislative races? How widespread is this fraud?
Between this and all the other fraud going on this early in the election, I cannot imagine this election can stand. Well, unless the Democrats win and then I bet you will hear nothing about voting machine problems, vandalism, and disenfranchising Republican voters.
This is just ridiculous, there is nothing left that is good in politics. All this has gone beyond politics, this is amoral criminal behavior!
