Badges Posters Stickers T-Shirts
Iowa Secretary of State, Brad Anderson (pictured), is giving away T-shirts for campaign contributions.
The T-shirts, in Dummycrat blue, say --
Brad Anderson "I won't sleep until Iowa beats Minnesota in voter turnout".
The word sleep is underlined, which must mean he knows he's lying and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Anderson's ideas to beat Minnesota include, permanent absentee voting whereby voters sign up to get a ballot sent to their home for every election.
To vote absentee now, a voter must fill out a form and request to vote by mail each time there’s an election.
On the face of it, Anderson's idea sounds like a waste of money to me, as well as confusing.
Each County Auditor would automatically send out these ballots, which covers postage to the voter and return postage, but what happens when voters move between elections? or die?
That also opens up a greater possibility of fraud, which helped elect Al Franken in Minnesota.
In the '08 campaign, Republican Sen. Norm Coleman was running for re-election against Democrat Al Franken. It was impossibly close; on the morning after the election, after 2.9 million people had voted, Coleman led Franken by 725 votes.
Franken and his Democratic allies dispatched an army of lawyers to challenge the results. After the first canvass, Coleman's lead was down to 206 votes. That was followed by months of wrangling and litigation. In the end, Franken was declared the winner by 312 votes. He was sworn into office in July 2009, eight months after the election.
During the controversy a conservative group called Minnesota Majority began to look into claims of voter fraud. Comparing criminal records with voting rolls, the group identified 1,099 felons -- all ineligible to vote -- who had voted in the Franken-Coleman race.
Minnesota Majority took the information to prosecutors across the state, many of whom showed no interest in pursuing it. But Minnesota law requires authorities to investigate such leads. And so far, Fund and von Spakovsky report, 177 people have been convicted -- not just accused, but convicted -- of voting fraudulently in the Senate race.
Brad Anderson's campaign needs to "sleep" with the fishes.
