Democrats Stealing Elections: Illinois Dems Deny Military the Vote in 2010 Election
The Dept. of justice is investigating whether the Democrat Secretary of State for Illinois has somehow forgotten to send thousands of absentee ballots out to members of the military serving overseas and in this close election climate in Illinois, these ballots now not to be counted could be decisive.
Federal election law, specifically the Overseas Voter Empowerment Act (MOVE), states that every state must mail their absentee ballots 45 days before the election. However, Cris Cray, director of Legislation at the Illinois State Board of Elections, has reported that some of Illinois’ voting jurisdictions have failed to mail ballots on time.
Reporters confirmed that Justice is investigating Illinois via a message from Justice Department spokeswoman Xochil Hinojosa.
“The Department is working with all states, including Illinois, to investigate and remedy and problems that will prevent our men and women serving overseas from having the opportunity to vote and have their votes counted,” Hinojosa said.
Races for governor and the senate are very close in Illinois and with military ballots often going overwhelmingly for Republican candidates, these ballots that will now not count could tip the vote illicitly in the Democrat’s favor. Considering that many military votes now won’t get counted, is it any surprise that the Democrats are in charge of making sure our military votes get counted?
I am informed by the Sec. of State’s office that it has no role in sending out the ballots, only counting them. So the failure here is at the local jurisdictional level. It is still inexcusable no matter which office is responsible.
