A Final Word on Fraud

Follow Up:
A Final Word on Fraud

          Although I think it’s time to change the subject on this blog, I hope that the efforts to get to the truth about the election do not end, and that the struggle for electoral integrity in general will remain a priority.
This link is very useful because it offers a bullet-point presentation of the many suspected instances of fraud in last week’s election.  We have a very short window of time to take action on this, and most of our elected officials seem unwilling to take the risk.  It is up to us to keep the pressure on.  Contact as many as you can, and encourage others to do the same.
          I finally got through to someone in Pennsylvania, which had been the toughest state for me.  I was told there were no specific allegations of fraud, and when I asked about the suspiciously abnormal numbers for Barack Obama in many urban districts, I was told they weren’t so suspicious.  That includes the 59 districts in which Obama beat Romney roughly 20,000 to zero.  In 2008 there were 57 such districts.  Of course, in 2004 there were only 5 for John Kerry.  I still find those numbers totally unrealistic, especially considering that in the "most anti-Obama county in the country," King County, Texas, Mr. Obama managed to get five votes out of only 145 cast.  But I’ll admit to not being an expert.
          I continue to make no specific accusations, as I have no proof of unlawful activity.  I simply want the questions to be asked and answered.
          One thing we do know is that there was massive registration fraud in many states, which makes any election vulnerable.  Presumably, many (if not all) the people involved acted of their own accord or in small groups in perpetrating the fraud, but it brings to the fore the absolute necessity of voter ID laws.  Every Republican, and really every honest American interested in the integrity of our system, should fight for these laws in all 50 states, certainly before 2016.  Even when this election’s dust has settled, that issue must not be pushed aside.
          And most importantly of all, we Catholics must be prepared to keep fighting, even more intensely, for the causes most immediately at risk: life, marriage, and religious freedom.  And we must be ever-vigilant regarding future threats.
