Election Double-Dipping

Check this out:

Man accused of voting twice in Bush-Gore election

August 16, 2006

BY ABDON M. PALLASCH Legal Affairs Reporter

If there's one thing Donovan Riley apparently learned during his time in Chicago, it was "Vote early and often."

Riley, 69, the former CEO of the University of Illinois Medical Center and a former law professor at Loyola University, is running for a state senate seat in Milwaukee.

On Nov. 7, 2000, the day of the big election between Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush, Riley appeared at the polling place in Oconomowac, Wis., where he had registered to vote just the day before, voting records show. His ex-wife owned a home there.

"Then he drove down to Chicago where he was already registered and he voted again," said Michael Crooks, a Wisconsin attorney who filed a complaint against Riley with Wisconsin election officials. "This is about as blatant as it gets."

Waukesha County District Attorney Paul Bucher said it's usually difficult to prove such allegations. "But in this case, these documents seem to be pretty good," he said.

The article goes on to quote Riley as saying "it's possible I made a mistake." Pulling the wrong lever is a mistake. Voting twice on the same day in different states is not.

By the way, Riley is running as a Democrat. His platform?

*economic opportunity, social justice, personal freedom
*health care for all
*ensuring women can make their own decisions about reproductive health
*safety without concealed guns
*fair elections
*accessible government

No word on what the DNC or Al Gore think.

-At least he didn't vote in Florida.

Oconomowoc is two hours from Chicago in good traffic. Forgot? Uh-uh.

For all of our well-documented problems with vote fraud here, Wisconsin may be worse than Illinois.

We don't have election day voter registration.

In '04, Kerry's ppl probably stole Wisconsin from Bush.

What is unusual for the live to vote twice and the dead to vote 10 times in Chicago? Normal operation since the demorats have been running the place. Ohio is catching up fast, guess they sent some of the demorats to chicago for OJT. Florida doesn't need any help. They'll just keep recounting and slipping in votes (punching out chads) until the demorats get the result they desire, unless the SCOTUS slaps the criminals down.
