OK kids, it’s time once again to play “Name That Party!”


A Newark, NJ “campaign worker” pled guilty to election fraud on Friday. Angel Colon admitted submitting fraudulent absentee and messenger ballots on behalf of State Senator Teresa Ruiz in 2007.

Ruiz won the election.

Now here’s the test. Go read the AP story.

Did you notice any mention of Colon’s or Ruiz’s political party affiliation? No? Gee you’d think that fact would be relevent, right?

And it would be damn relevent to our liberal media, if either of the politicians in question was a Republican. But election fraud by Democrats in Essex County? That’s pretty much on the level of “Dog Bites Man.”

If the media actually noted the fraudsters’ party affiliation people might start drawing some conclusions. Then we’d remember that back in 2009 Ruiz’s husband was indicted on the exact same charges. He “reached a plea deal” and entered pre-trial intervention thus avoiding jail time. It’s good to have a powerful wife!

So the next time the media tells you it’s “disenfranchising” to require a voter to show ID, what they really mean is such a requirement would make it harder for ethically challenged politicians like Teresa Ruiz to remain in office. And then she’ll quickly point out that she has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Of course she hasn’t. She got hubby to take the fall, then greased the skids for him.

What is it that the media always says about “the apppearance of impropriety” when a Republican is entangled in shady shenanigans? When it’s a Democrat in the cross-hairs all we hear are crickets.
