WARNING: THIS SITE FEATURES ORIGINAL THINKING...Jim Croce once sang Don't tug on Superman's cape..., which seems like reasonable advice should we not wish to anger the supreme powers. We do have this duality in our culture: the Superman that is the state collective, the leftist call to a politics of meaning managed by the state, the deification of "we're from the government and we'll take care of you" - versus the Superman that celebrates individual freedom, private property, freedom of conscience, free enterprise, and limited government. We humbly take on the latter's mantle and, eschewing the feeble tug, we dare to PULL, in hope of seeing freedom's rescue from the encroaching nanny state. We invite you, dear reader, to come and pull as well... Additionally, if you assume that means that we are unflinching, unquestioning GOP zombies, that would be incorrect. We reject statism in any form and call on individuals in our country to return to the original, classical liberalism of our founders. (We're also passionate about art, photography, cooking, technology, Judeo/Christian values, and satire as unique, individual pursuits of happiness to celebrate.)

Racine (Sorry L.A.) Confidential
Filed in: Current Affairs, Politics, Wisconsin Vote Fraud

I’ve been struggling for quite a while now.   I have this particularly nasty bit of information to pass on.  I really want to protect the innocent, but where Democrats are concerned there are no innocents.  So, what the hell!  Here it goes.

Once again let’s go back to November 2, 2004 and a little further beyond.  We have a homegrown “Get-Out-The-Vote” campaign in Racine.  It is affiliated with a local non-profit organization.  This organization is on the take (oooooooopppppps gets funding) from various Local, State and Federal funding sources.  501-c-3 regulations prohibit this type of organization from supporting or actively promoting political candidates. 

Throughout the campaign it was the location of several Democrat sponsored events including a visit from John (I Love Suing) Edwards.  An event where the Racine Unified School District saw fit to trot out a number of students carrying Kerry/Edwards signs and allow them to be photographed by the National Media.  More ominously, they were a major distribution point for the Election Day cattle drive to the polls.  Armed with vans donated or paid for by businesses and candidates they had strong-armed (solicited donations from), they packed them with citizens of other cities, states, countries, under-aged delinquents, felons, drug addicts and a variety of other ne'er-do-wells.  Accompanied by two “Qualified Electors” (By Wisconsin Statute that means they were actually breathing) they were off on the round robin of poll visits.  Also in the vans were instructions on how to vote the straight Democrat ticket (courtesy of Move-On), instructions on how to request a same day registration without benefit of ID, and payment for their hard work that day.  Payment took various forms depending on the preferred affliction of the “Voter”.

So far there is nothing too new here.  This was common practice in the Democrat neighborhoods of Wisconsin.  And of course, the   Universities in Madison, Milwaukee, Racine/Kenosha, Whitewater, and La Crosse also acted as agents for the Democrat party throughout the day on November 2nd.  What is interesting about this particular organization is the method used to collect donations and where they go.  One does not have to be familiar with Wisconsin Campaign Finance Statutes to fully understand the events I am about to relay.  The fact they strong-arm candidates and businesses is distasteful, but probably not illegal.  The manner by which these “contributions” are collected is where things get messy.  These contributions are delivered not to the organization, but directly to the director in his name.  This definitely is contrary to Campaign Finance regulations.

First, the contributions by the candidate MUST be fully disclosed in amount and purpose.  For businesses, they MUST record this transaction as part of the Profit and Loss Statements submitted to the IRS.  More importantly, if this contribution is valid, the revenue and expenses generated MUST be recorded and become part of annual audited statements of the non-profit organization. 

In the case of candidate reporting, I am personally aware of an un-named candidate that had contributed to the organization for Get-Out-The-Vote support by writing checks in excess of, let’s just say, $1,000 for sake of argument.  In reality it was much more.  Even though the checks are written payable to an individual they are clearly identified in the candidate’s on-line Campaign Finance report as GOTV support.  It is likely, although I’m not 100% sure of this, that the vans were donated by a local auto dealership.  And I am also sure that none of this activity shows up on the audited statements of the organization.  Where that money goes and if it is being recorded anywhere, I cannot say for sure.  I have my suspicions, but it requires just a little more information to be sure.

One thing is certain.  At the very least this organization should lose its 501-c-3 status with the IRS for acting as a political agent for a major national party (Democrat).  Like any other issue that touches a segment of the population that is off limits to criticism, the Mayor of Racine has his head stuck so far up a particular body cavity he needs a glass navel to see.

Any representatives of the State Election Commission, Law Enforcement or the Democrat Party, for that mater, please respond to this post and I’d be glad to provide even more details.  My vote has been stolen for the last time.

Kevin Spacey, eat your heart out!!!  Back with more of “As The Mayor Turns” in a while!

Nice catch, Ron.

The involvement of the kids and all that smells to me like part of the problem of public education - they want to be in a growth industry and consider the children to be pawns.

Also, this enfranchising of people who shouldn't be - don't worry, that's happened here too. Sometimes by honest mistake, sometimes not.
