Well this is upsetting enough to cause a burst blood vessel or two in not only in Connecticut, but anywhere honest people are paying attention to politics…
The Democrat mayor of Bridgeport, Bill Finch, was caught on tape joking about corruption in the race between Ct. congressman Chris Murphy’s bid for the U.S. Senate against Republican Linda McMahon…
”You can be guaranteed you’re going to get the vote,” the Mayor told Murphy.
As Joseph Stalin used to say, “The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything” – an aphorism today’s Democrats apparently take to heart.
Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch is at it again. The Democrat who presided over a 2010 vote casting and counting scandal in the tight race for governor was caught on video Friday guaranteeing Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Christopher Murphy a big result in the state’s largest city–even if it takes days to count.
Bridgeport provided a crucial and dubious margin of victory to Democratic and Working Families Governor Dannel P. Malloy in 2010 amidst unprecedented chaos at the city’s polling places. The 2010 Bridgeport assault on democracy included photocopied ballots, altered hours at polling places, a mysterious bag of votes and Finch’s abuse of the city’s emergency notification system to increase turnout on Election Day.
Surely there are still some honest Democrats out there who will be disturbed by this?
Or have they all become like the anti-Democratic party as described by Matthew Vadum in FrontPageMagazine, last June?
Democrats love to count perhaps even more than a familiar “Sesame Street” character known for his fangs, monocle, and cape. If they don’t like the results, Democrats keep counting the votes over and over again until they get the result they want. They tally, calculate, and enumerate their way to victory whenever their candidate is within what columnist John Fund calls the “margin of ACORN.” (See U.S. Sen. Al Franken, Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire, to name just two recent examples.) With the help of radical financier George Soros they even created the Secretary of State Project to install state officers who would help rig elections for Democrats.
Democrats want the votes of everyone to count, from U.S. citizens to illegal aliens and lawfully disenfranchised felons. Corrupt Democratic election officials routinely expand the electorate, accepting votes from the under-aged and the dead. That’s why they collectively freak out when the topic of voter photo ID comes up, advancing the most ridiculous arguments against ID requirements. The poor, minorities, and the old are too dumb and frail to acquire photo ID – even though getting by without it is impossible in modern society.
