Hey Brian Kemp! North Carolina needs you!

My oh my.

Imagine the horror and outrage that Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp would express if something like THIS happened here in the Peach State.

— Hundreds of North Carolinians – and one cat – have received incorrect voter registration information, according to the N.C. State Board of Elections.

The information – an “official application form” – was sent by Americans for Prosperity, a national conservative group with a state chapter based in Raleigh.

Since then, hundreds of people who received the forms have called and complained to the State Board of Elections, said Joshua Lawson, a public information officer for the board.

The form includes incorrect or conflicting information, according to the State Board of Elections…. Misinformation about voter registration can be a felony if it is intentionally misleading and is proven to suppress voters, Lawson said.”

Confronted with a scandal like that, I’m sure Kemp would be flinging around words like “felony” and “fraud” at every opportunity, promising to confront this dire threat to the sanctity of the electoral process …

Oh. Wait.

Did that say “Americans for Prosperity”?

So probably not.

America is a funny place, we guard for events that historically never happen like the millennium computer crisis and voter fraud yet leave the door wide open for a parade of rag tag terrorist to load three planes and attack the country. We outsource our airport security to balance our books then spend millions in a witch hunt. Our problem in a nut shell.

blah blah blah

Isn't it the democrats that run around yelling & screaming about NO voter fraud in America???  Guess they're clueless.  Excuse me, no guessing just clueless.

The scariest thing about Brian Kemp is (regardless of your political affiliation this should concern you) is he is dumber than a sack of hammers. I mean, stupid. His rise in GA politics is one of the strangest phenoms (well, not really) the political history of the state. It sounds like something from the 1940's.


His election to the state house came after his brother in law in the state senate redrew a district favorable for him to run in (a seat his brother in law used to hold). Then when the district was redrawn again and his job seemed in peril by a better GOP candidate with some actual brains, he was appointed sec. of state when Karen Handel stepped down. People in Oconee and Clarke county know what the rest of the folks in the state don't 


However, do not take my word for it. Listen to him, he really is barely literate. He is a complete opportunist. If he ever runs for higher office, he will be exposed as the fool he truly is.


He used to be a contractor in the area, I wouldn't hire the guy to contract my yard getting edged.

A man suspected of beheading a woman he worked with and stabbing another was a convicted felon who had been released from probation this year, Oklahoma corrections officials confirmed Thursday.


Alton Nolen, 30, was released from probation in April, earlier than the original 2017 date, said Jerry Massie, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.


Police said Nolen had been fired from Vaughan Foods shortly before the attack. Witnesses told officers that Nolen had recently been trying to convert several employees to Islam.

Speaking of moderates, I think the purge of moderates seeking purity in the gop party was a huge mistake.


It shrinked their tiny tent to rw extremists only.


Then they look for moderates in Syria like hypocrites.

hmmmmm..... I could not post that last comment until I took out the word Foundation from AFP Foundation...  I kept getting an message about "malformed content".  I guess the system knows that the AFP is just wrong. 


On EDIT:  And now Foundation posted...........

AFP pointed out that though a recent mailing of voter registration forms contained a few administrative errors, they were not substantive and the program has resulted in thousands of new registered voters

_____


Well see RWers .... AFP says a few mistakes in forms are nothing to be concerned about as long as thousands are registered.  I am sure Kemp will agree.

If the average low information voter is not smart enough to obtain a simple card affirming that he is a citizen and has the right to vote, he/she should not vote.  However, tons of low information voters who usually vote for Democrats would no doubt stay home because of the inconvenience, all the time pointing the finger at some GOP racist and complaining that their voting rights had been violated.  No one complained when you had to have an ID to get and EBT card, or assisted housing, or child care services, or welfare checks.  For these things, they would have stood in line for days, no questions asked.  But voting?  On the best year that blacks ever had, in 2012, only 66% showed up to vote for Bozo.  And thats the best year on record.  So a lot of them are staying home, even in a good year. Look how many more would probably stay home if a voter ID was required to vote.  Debbie Wassrman Shultz wouldn't like that.  Neither would the average Democrat.

Since there are Democrats accusing the AFP of some sort of fraud why doesn't Jay call them out. No. If the GOP claims fraud then Jay must point out there irrational claims but if the Dems do the same thing then  Jay points to the GOP irrational claim not the Dems.

@Gmare Our troops deserve respect. Sending them into an undeclared war which cannot be won and which has no plausible end is not respectful. I am referring to Korea, VietNam, and the multiple wars in and around Iraq. This is a bipartisan lack of respect.

@kayaker71 

How would you know "how many" will stay home and not vote?

From what I have been "hearing,"  there will be a record turn out for the midterms.  It means that voters like yourself will not have bumper-sticker slogans to toss around.

@Moderate_line  <sigh>  again your link demonstrates that the concern about fraud relates to misinformation provided by AFP.  There has been no allegation of misinformation by Kemp in his alleged claims of concern. 


I know you wont comprehend the actual distinctions between the two. That would take intellectual honesty.

@Moderate_line @gotalife Lincoln said he was not interested in punishing the south when he offered his 10% for amnesty. Look at what his leniency did it gave breed to the current republican party born and raised in the south.  He should have listened to the Republicans in Congress who were more interested in punishing the South and let them finish the job.  This country would be a lot better off.

There are always differences between every incident which is what people use to rationalize the reason their side is right and the other side is wrong. 


If you want to prove you are intellectually honest I would suggest relying less on personal attacks like "I know you wont comprehend the actual distinctions between the two. That would take intellectual honesty." 


I may not have to ability to comprehend but insulting me is really is not going to solve the problem.

@KUTGF @Moderate_line No I see your point. 

Kemp’s office also sent a letter to county election officials in Georgia’s 159 counties warning that a  “preliminary investigation has revealed significant illegal activities."

I acknowledge the differences for the second time. Kemp claim significant illegal actives while in NC they are claiming fraud which does not distract from my original point.
