SR 1238 – Why Doesn’t the RNC Do Something About Voter Fraud?
Good morning, I’m still reporting on voter fraud.
I first ran this story a year and 2 days ago, but that was when we had only 20,000 subscribers. Today, our subscribers just hit 50,000 and are headed north at about 400 per day.
This story is even more relevant than it was a year ago, and it’s one of those stories that I just can’t improve upon.

In the wake of the 2012 presidential election, do you remember hearing that some precincts voted 99% for President Obama? Other precincts had higher vote counts then there were registered voters in that precinct? Also there is other evidence that some brands of voting machines are completely insecure? 
Not having infinite time to read up on everything, I have tended to dismiss allegations of voter fraud in the past because if there was anything to it, surely the Republican National Committee would have an army of attorneys all over it.
Well, as it turns out, I was wrong. The RNC has actually been heavily restricted from trying to prevent voter fraud since 1981 as a result of an obscure Federal Court decision in a New Jersey governor’s race.
And when the RNC appealed the 1981 decision in the run-up to President Obama’s 2012 re-election, a federal judge who Obama had appointed to the federal appeals court just months before, Judge Joseph A Greenway II, not only denied the RNC appeal, but made the situation even more restrictive. 
The result is that if the Republicans challenge anything that has to do with voter fraud, they will be slammed back into federal court by the Democrats and made to look like they are practicing racial discrimination.
I won’t go into all the details case, but anyone can go on the Judicial View website and find this case for more info. I will provide this Tiny URL link in the Description box below.

Back in 1981, during the New Jersey gubernatorial election, New Jersey Republicans went too far in attempting to be sure only registered voters in minority precincts got to vote. 
They stationed off-duty police at polling places with armbands that read “National Ballot Security Task Force”. This had the effect of scaring off people, for example, who might have outstanding arrest warrants.
Of course this is – in essence - no different than what happened outside polling places in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential race, when Black Panthers with weapons were stationed outside polling stations -- but that was mysteriously never challenged in court. Now, we know why.
Back in 1981, the Democratic National Committee took the Republicans to court over the matter and Republicans, wanting to minimize the exposure of the appearance of a discriminatory practice, agreed to a “Consent Decree”. 
This Decree made it very difficult – and expensive – for Republicans to challenge voter fraud by the Democrats from then on – and since the case was heard in federal court, the resulting restrictions have applied nationwide ever since.
In Dec. 2010, in the face of significant evidence of voter fraud on the part of the Democrats, the RNC asked Judge Greenway, to vacate the 1981 consent decree so these allegations could be effectively pursued.
15 months later, when Judge Greenway released his opinion, he not only denied the appeal, but even appeared to broaden the scope significantly in his opinion summary:
“The ‘Consent Decree’, which is national in scope, [limits] the RNC’s ability to engage or assist in voter fraud prevention unless the RNC obtains the court’s approval in advance.” 
But in order to seek the court’s approval, the RNC had to give the DNC 10 days notice – hardly sufficient for challenges in the days before an election. 
Even then, bringing these lawsuits by the RNC is typically fruitless, and very expensive. 
The DNC is heavily favored in this Consent Decree. It does not need expensive litigation to harass the RNC; it only needs to allege a violation of the 1981 Decree by the RNC which then must prove to the court’s satisfaction its innocence.
The RNC has charged that the breadth of this order and the expense of defending its actions has even prevented them from pursuing normal poll watching activities – something that Judge Greenway has dismissed as irrelevant.
