"Oh, you mean THAT vote fraud...

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud.
  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.
  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.
  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.

If this is true, the the officer should be fired.

From those wonderful people at BATFEIEIO: "Just because we keep using mentally retarded people, doesn't mean we MEANT to!"
“We do not target the developmentally disabled,” ATF director Todd Jones testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
The Journal-Sentinel investigation found that agents in Wichita decided to hire an unemployed 20-year-old man with an IQ in the mid-50s who they referred to as “slow-headed.” Agents in Pensacola, Fla., befriended an unemployed 24-year-old with an IQ of 76. ATF agents joked he was “half retarded,” and surveillance video captured one saying, “I can use his desperation against him.”
All coincidental, I'm sure.
But don't worry, Jones is on the case!
“You don’t think your agents dealing with an individual with an IQ in the 50s knew they were dealing with a mentally disabled person?” Duckworth asked Jones. “If your IQ is in the 50s it is very clear someone is mentally disabled.”

“To be honest with you, Congresswoman, I don’t know what they thought,” Jones replied.

Y'know, if GM had received anywhere near the kind of attention that, say, Toyota di-
oh yeah, Government Motors.  Never mind.
...It announced this week that it too was recalling over a million vehicles that had sudden loss of electric power steering. This, after recalling nearly 3 million vehicles for ignition-switch problems that the company knew about since 2001 and are now linked 13 deaths. GM has apologized. But does anyone believe the Obama administration took as hard a look at GM as it did Toyota?

Speaking of racist bullshit,
Leonard Zeskind, an author and activist, hosted a session on the racist roots of the tea party, a limited government movement that returned the U.S. House of Representatives to Republican control in 2010.

In Zeskind’s view, the oppression of minorities is a central motivating principal of the tea party.
Tea party groups are similar to white nationalist groups, he said.
Zeskind denounced other racists as well. People who send their kids to private schools are also racists. People who disagree with President Obama are racists.
Be a shorter list for this bigoted fool to decide what he DOESN'T see as racist.
