SB1003: An appropriate step to protect election integrity

Necessary remedy addresses voter fraud

AZ Senate Bill 1003, sponsored by state Sen. Michele Reagan (R-Dist.23) is a concept worthy of support. During the last election, the early voting system was exploited by individuals and groups who systematically collected large numbers of ballots intended as mail-in votes.

Although verifying the legitimacy of voters should not be a partisan issue, such efforts are relentlessly attacked by Democrats. Many will be surprised to learn that Republicans agreed to have their hands tied in protesting voting violations via this 1981 Lawsuit and Consent Decree in the case Democratic National Committee v Republican National Committee. For an excellent overview, we urge you to acquaint yourself with Bob Unruh’s WND article in which he describes the impact of this case 30 years later. On March 8, 2012, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court’s previous ruling. The case is currently pending before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sen. Reagan’s bill would impose a Class 5 felony on anyone returning another voter’s early ballot to a polling place or appropriate elections official unless that person is a family member or residing in the same household as the voter. It specifically prohibits any paid or volunteer worker to return an early ballot in service of any political committee, group or organization. Penalties range from probation to 2½ years in DOC

Seeing Red AZ has been exposing voter fraud since 2010. The Arizona República, the statewide daily newspaper, characterizes any attempts to control this growing problem using the incendiary language of radical activist Randy Parraz, who refers to “voter suppression” —  specifically Hispanic voter suppression —  which tends Democrat. Although fraud is unmindful of ethnicity, that is not the case in eyes of liberals and their advocates whose intent is exploitation.

    Speaking of exploitation of the voters, take a good look at this self-professed “mystical” couple. Their motto must be ‘if you can’t go rogue, go Vogue’ What IS this little man up to? Whatever it is, it is Not good for Arizona.

    (Sorry, SRA, I just had to throw some daylight on this)

    • Not Fooled says:

      This Daily Mail news report is written like a sizzling romance novel! “Gorgeous,” “mystical,” “relaxing at her Arizona home as she gazes longingly at her husband – softly taking hold of Kelly’s hand as the desert sun streams in to surround them.” Gaw-lee. It’s a pulse racer, for sure!!
      But back on topic:
      Watch this! It’s shocking!

      • AZ Conservative Guy says:

        I wonder if Eric Holder, who doesn’t think there is any evidence of voter fraud, has seen this? “You don’t need ID?” “Just sign here!” “it doesn’t matter if your signature matches.”

        “Voter fraud doesn’t exist. There is no proof,” says the U.S. Attorney General, who is about to be defrauded of his own vote at his own polling place!! With this administration in place, I fear we’re doomed.

  2. eubykdisop says:

    An important topic, SRAZ, and a good piece of proposed legislation to get the ball rolling in the right direction!

  3. Ellsworth says:

    A fine piece of legislation, Sen. Reagan! Thank you for your efforts to keep our voting system above reproach. Voters have to trust this process or we become no better than a banana republic dictatorship.

  4. Rambling Rose says:

    If our elections are suspect, so are the results. Is this what we want for our country and its future? We can have differing opinions on who the best cadidate might be, but we should have faith that the process works and is based in nonesty and integrity.

  5. Annie O. says:

    Don’t laud Ragan (former family spelling in IL) too much, folks.
    She’s had her eye on Sec. of State for years. This is called hoping to “feather one’s future nest”!
    Ragan? My friend in her district received mail from Michele the first year she ran for office and this was the spelling on the return address label. OOPs!

    • American Patriot says:

      Who would you prefer for SOS? Amnesty Driggs? Perennial candidate Vernon Parker? Silent on MAS John Huppenthal? Reagan might not be perfect, but some are less imperfect than others. Names? Did you know we had a US Prez named Leslie Lynch King, Jr and another named William Blythe?

    Absentee ballots are one of the primary areas where voter fraud takes place.

    “Officials Plead Guilty in New York Voter Fraud Case”

    “By Eric Shawn
    Published December 21, 2011″

    “A total of four Democratic officials and political operatives have now pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal a New York election.”

    “Numerous voters told Fox News that they were stunned that their signatures were faked on absentee ballot applications and ballots, which were cast as real votes in their names in the 2009 primary election.”

    “In November 2009, Democratic operative Anthony DeFiglio told New York State police investigators that faking absentee ballots was a commonplace and accepted practice in political circles, all intended to swing an election.”

  7. William says:

    I attended the Committee Hearing and got to see the moron Randy Parraz in action.

    The dude is such a loser.

    • American Patriot says:

      I’d be interested in some observations. If you have time, fill in some of the blanks for the rest of us. You’re on the right track. From what I’ve read and seen in news clips, Parraz is a creep on a major ego trip.

  8. Dennis O'Brien says:

    Let’s tell it like it is. Registering to vote and voting itself has become too easy. When you can register to vote online, apply for a permanent mail-in ballot, and then vote from your kitchen table, there is virtually no oversight. We are told signatures are checked, but just how that’s done under the conditions I describe remains a mystery. Even people who are not intent on defrauding the system — and it’s clear there are plenty who have that as their objective, as evidenced by the videos here — don’t have to trouble themselves to go to a polling place to exercise the priceless right of casting a ballot. To provide ease, we have set voter fraud in place, and there are many unscrupulous people who are all too happy to take advantage of such foolishness. There is a definite downside to being given too much. Get off your butts and vote at the polls, just like Americans have always gladly done.

  9. CD9 says:

    That bill is a good start, maybe because I am so old I can remember when it took me hours to register and hours to vote, but absentee voting was for absentee voters only. It was also my greatest right to vote and in all these years I have only not voted less that 5 times.

    1. re-register every eligible voter using a birthcertificate and a state picture ID or passport.
    2. No mail in ballots unless disabled or you can prove you will be out of town.
    3. Give people a week to vote, up to the date of the election using last name for day of week to vote.
    4. Ink the finger of every voter, but ink must last a week on the finger.
    5. Make everybody take a test on government to be eligible. If u too stupid to pass the test, you can’t vote.

  10. Attila The Hunny says:

    Whoa. Wait a minute. Let’s have a reality check here. Back in March 2011, Michele Reagan voted to defeat a package of FIVE bills dealing with the continued invasion of our country by illegal aliens, which facilitated people like Randy Parraz and the massive voter fraud/manipulation he represents. The Democrats voted in unison against all five bills. But a contingent of Republicans who misrepresented themselves as conservatives when they ran for election, joined the Democrats in defeating all of these bills. Michele Reagan sided with the same people she is now trying to configure herself to be opposed to. Sorry, but she can’t have it both way.

    • eubykdisop says:

      So let me get this straight, Hunny. Despite voting against immigration control legislation, you think that Michele Reagan should have a pay raise, paid for by Arizona taxpayers. That is what you are supporting, isn’t it?

      • Attila The Hunny says:

        How in the world did you draw that conclusion? Reagan is clearly trying to reconfigure herself by going tough on the very people she was giving aid and comfort to last year. That’s quite a leap you took. Where did I imply she warranted a pay raise?

      • eubykdisop says:

        My apologies, Hunny. If you don’t support increased compensation for all state legislators, which would include Reagan, then you don’t think she should have a pay raise.
