Like a common thief who, when caught red-handed with his hand in the till, calls the cop who caught him a crook, Barack Obama’s campaign has asked the Department of Justice to “look into whether any administration officials have worked in a joint effort with the McCain campaign and the RNC in legitimizing the allegations of vote fraud.” We are somehow reminded of Boss Tweed’s bullyboys and private police force roughing up any New Yorker who dared to point out that he had seen Tweed’s partisans vote twice.
Below is an optical character recognition scan of the relevant portion of Obama campaign counsel Bob Bauer’s letter to the Department of Justice. Not only is Bauer sufficiently audacious to assert, “These [vote fraud] allegations do not mean illegal voting. Nobody really expects thousands of Mickey Mouses or Tony Romos to show up at the poll to vote this fall.” Sure, Bobby, and that guy who is concealing merchandise in his coat doesn’t really intend to carry it out of the store without paying. Why register nonexistent people, dead people, and children to vote unless you plan to have them vote? What stops an ACORN worker from going to multiple polling places to vote under multiple ACORN-fabricated identities? Mickey Mouse might not get past the door, but that seven year-old girl whom ACORN registered as an adult just might.
Furthermore, Bobby, you should remember the old adage about coming into court with clean hands, and you sure don’t want a court (or the Department of Justice) to take official notice of the highly credible allegations against Barack Obama’s own campaign of outright election fraud. (more…)
