John Fund of the Wall Street Journal wrote yesterday that Democrats may already be trying to steal the New Jersey election. According to Fund, Garden State Democrats are taking advantage of a new law on mail-in voting, while pressuring local election clerks to not scrutinize the signatures on the ballots too closely – “the only verification procedure allowed.”
But, according to Fund, “On some 3,000 forms the signature doesn’t match the one on file with county clerks.” Nevertheless, Democrat lawyers are demanding that the secretary of state “instruct County Clerks not to deny applications on the basis of signature comparison alone.”
How bad is the potential problem? According to one campaign worker in Camden “more than fifteen times the normal number of voters are casting absentee ballots in Camden this year.” Worse yet, Fund writes that ACORN workers were spotted going into a hospital near Newark with blank absentee ballots and leaving with completed ballots. While these so-called “messenger ballots” may be legal, the potential for fraud and abuse is obvious. I hope Republican Chris Christie has an army of poll watchers and lawyers on duty today to stop another election from being stolen.
If the election in New Jersey is close, these ballots may determine the outcome – and we know how that is likely to go. Every time I see Al Franken in the Senate I am reminded of just how important it is for every conservative to vote.
