Officials found guilty in Obama, Clinton ballot petition fraud; Who on the Left will condemn this crap?

A jury in South Bend, Indiana has found that fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election. Two Democratic political operatives were convicted Thursday night in the illegal scheme after only three hours of deliberations. They were found guilty on all counts.

Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition, after being accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House.

Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.

According to testimony from two former Board of Election officials who pled guilty, Morgan ordered Democratic officials and workers to fake the names and signatures that Obama and Clinton needed to qualify for the presidential race. Blythe, then a Board of Elections employee and Democratic Party volunteer, was accused of forging multiple pages of the Obama petitions.

“I think this helped uphold the integrity of the electoral system,” the prosecutor, Stan Levco told reporters.

“Their verdict of guilt is not a verdict against Democrats, but for honest and fair elections,” he said.

The scheme was hatched in January of 2008, according to affidavits from investigators who cite former Board of Registration worker Lucas Burkett, who told them he was in on the plan at first, but then became uneasy and quit. He waited three years before telling authorities about it, but if revelations about any forgeries were raised during the election, the petitions could have been challenged during the contest. A candidate who did not qualify with enough legitimate signatures at the time, could have been bounced from the ballot.

The case raise questions about whether in 2008, then candidate Obama actually submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the primary ballot.

“I think had they been challenged successfully, he probably would not have been on the ballot,” Levco told Fox News. Read Whole Story.

My question is does anybody on the left care that this happened? Does anybody understand what has taken place? Both the President and Hillary Clinton benefited from fraud, the President obviously benefited more as he won the election. But it is such an injustice done to all of America. This is not an attack on the President on my part, this is a cry of rage that this happened at all. How unpatriotic this action was and how sad and pathetic that anybody would think this was an acceptable course of action. Our elections set us apart from the rest of the world but it seems now we have lost control of our election system and must always now look upon election results with a bit of suspicion.

    • Yeah I agree unbelievable but the way things are happening in our country not surprising. You know I watched an interview with a naturalized citizen who served in the marines and fought in Iraq and Afghanistan he was seeking a new mexico congress seat and he was specificaly not allowed to be placed on the ballot without presenting his birth certificate and and papers proving citizenship. He was purposely trying to get on the ballot without them because our current President was put on the ballot without producing his birth certificate. The marine “had” to produce documentation.
