A Warm Familiar Feeling
(Voter fraud is alive and well in Virginia)
You know immediately when it happens - the mushy feeling underfoot followed by the putrid stench after stepping in dog excrement. I'm sure that's how Representative Jim Moran, Democrat-VA. feels right now, so let's begin with a story from the Associated Press (AP) from 10/25 where he steps in it and puts both feet in his mouth:
"Three Democratic Virginia congressmen . . . . Reps. Gerald Connolly, James P. Moran Jr. and Bobby Scott recently asked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to order the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the [Republican voter fraud] allegations, media outlets reported Wednesday."
Oh, there's no doubt that Holder would love to smear Republicans this close to the election, but he'll need to ignore the elephant in the room to do so, thanks to a story from wnd.com originally posted 10/24, one day before the above AP story ran (was the AP asleep?):
Video snags Dem boss plotting vote fraud
"The son of Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. [Patrick Moran] – who serves as the field director for his father’s campaign – has been caught on video advising an undercover reporter how to fraudulently cast ballots in the name of registered voters by forging utility bills and relying on the assistance of Democrat lawyers."
"If there’s any trouble [Patrick Moran] says, an Obama for America lawyer, or another Democrat lawyer, will be on hand to provide help . . . You’ll have somebody in house, that if they feel that what you have is legitimate, they’ll argue for you . . . Moran advises the reporter to contact the registered voters on the list to make sure they don’t plan to cast a ballot Nov. 6. He suggests obtaining the information by posing as a pollster."
And that's just the beginning - Patrick Moran understood that he was abetting no less than 100 fraudulent votes through only one person, and it sounds like he wasn't a stranger to the practice. Rep. James P. Moran, Jr., Democrat-VA. and his son should need a Pooper-Scooper right now, but I'm sure that Eric Holder will sweep their mess under the rug and pursue the Republicans. Can anyone say "Black Panthers" and "Philadelphia"? You betcha!
