Apparently, when Barack Obama was a community organizer in Chicago, he learned the tools of the Chicago style politcal trade very well. “Vote early. Vote often.” That was the mantra for Mayor Daley.
Barack Obama is trying to bring that mantra to Norfolk, Virginia where they have effectively ordered the local election board to waive a voter registration requirement of filling out a residency form. The residency form is necessary to ensure that voters really are Virginia residents and therefore qualified to vote in Virginia. Without the form to determine eligibility, it becomes possible for a voter to cast two or more votes.
From Judicial Watch:
|Taking orders from Barack Obama’s campaign, election officials in a crucial battleground state are waving procedures for registering new voters even though doing so violates state election laws.
The Democratic presidential candidate complained that college students—a demographic that he says ardently supports him—in Norfolk Virginia were discouraged from registering to vote because they had to complete a questionnaire to determine residency.
Virginia law requires local registrars throughout the state to decide eligibility based on residency and the questionnaire was designed by the state elections office to confirm where the new voters live.
In Norfolk many college students come from out of state and must register to vote in their home districts. Case in point; a student from Georgia who registered to vote in Virginia yet pays out-of-state tuition there, is declared as a dependent in Georgia and has a Georgia driver’s license and car registration.
So, Barack Obama, true to his Socialist nature, wants his supporters to vote as many times as possible while the rest of us only get to vote once.
Obama certainly didn’t wait to long to start stealing this election, did he?
