Obama, Hillary Forged Petition Signatures; Who Will Prosecute

By Debbie Schlussel

It’s a case of Forgery You Can Believe In.

Our friend, Gary Welsh of Advance Indiana, has been covering an important story that’s remained largely under the radar:  that the 2008 campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton used mostly forged petitions to get on Indiana’s ballots.  And since the signatures were fakes, neither Obama nor Mrs. Clinton should have been on Indiana’s ballot–either in the Democratic Primary or, in Obama’s case, in the general election.


The signatures of dozens, if not hundreds, of northern Indiana residents were faked on petitions used to place presidential candidates on the state primary ballot in 2008, The [South Bend] Tribune and Howey Politics Indiana have revealed in an investigation.

Several pages from petitions used to qualify Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the state’s Democratic primary contain names and signatures that appear to have been copied by hand from a petition for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Schellinger. The petitions were filed with the Indiana Election Division after the St. Joseph County Voter Registration Office verified individuals’ information on the documents.

You know that if this was one of the Republican campaigns, it would be national headlines.  I’ve already told you about Barack Obama’s forged Selective Service Registration form for the draft (probably because he broke the law and never actually registered for the draft when he was supposed to).  And, no surprise, Obama and his minions have an apparent pattern of forgery.

Advance Indiana’s Gary Welsh, a practicing attorney in Indiana, notes how prominent liberal Democrats whose names were forged are clamming up, but made a big deal about John McCain’s petition signatures:

What is remarkable is the forging of names of well-known Democrats on the petitions. In addition to [St. Joseph County Prosecutor Jim] Dvorak, the forged signatures included a former sheriff and county auditor, a county council member, a prominent South Bend attorney and two South Bend police officers. St. Joseph Co. Democratic Chairman Butch Morgan’s signatures appeared multiple times on the petitions. He has lawyered up and declined to talk to the reporters investigating the story.

The irony in all of this is that an Indiana Democratic Party staffer and former blogger for the Blue Indiana blog, Thomas Cook, filed a formal complaint in 2008 against the campaign of Sen. John McCain complaining that the petitions he filed in order to make the Republican primary ballot did not contain a sufficient number of signatures. . . .

There should be a prompt investigation launched by a state special prosecutor to look into the findings of this investigative report. You can bet the Obama Justice Department won’t allow the U.S. Attorney’s in Indiana to open up an investigation, particularly since the occupants of those offices are Democratic appointees, one of whom, Joe Hogsett, was actively involved in the 2008 Obama campaign. Kip Tew, a close friend of Hogsett, chaired the 2008 Obama campaign. He is a partner at Krieg DeVault and has written a book boasting of the success of the 2008 Obama campaign effort in Indiana.

Read the rest of this analysis and commentary by Gary. Stay tuned to Advance Indiana for Gary’s updates and insights on this and other stories you won’t see anywhere else.

Again, it’s a story that should make national headlines and involve Watergate-style investigation. But since the participants have a capital “D” (and a capital “L” for liberal) after their names, that ain’t gonna happen in either case.

Yes, Obama’s “Hope” is not only phony, it’s forged.

In answer to the question of who will prosecute: NOBODY!!!! Besides, Holder and his clowns at DOJ will disavow any knowledge of it like they are with “Fast and Furious” and OIG will be wasting precious budget money investigating innocuous BS allegations. Congressional committees? Well, they just continue covering down for each other.

And this all comes as a surprise……?

No, really. Especially when you consider this same Justice Department absolutely refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers for their blatant voter intimidation (brandishing billy clubs and other weapons) in the ’08 elections, not to mention refusing to prosecute any violent crimes committed by blacks, Latinos and other minorities.

Hopefully, Rush Limbaugh will talk about it. If this were a Republican scandal, all three news anchors would be reporting live from Indiana, and Holder would be traveling there to lead the investigation himself. Very frustrating when the whole democratic process is stacked against one side.

This is hardly surprising… Leftists more often then not believe that some people (leftists of course) are entitled to exemptions…

Here’s what Adam wrote in which I agree with him 100%:

“Hopefully, Rush Limbaugh will talk about it. If this were a Republican scandal, all three news anchors would be reporting live from Indiana, and Holder would be traveling there to lead the investigation himself. Very frustating when the whole democratic process is stacked against one side.”

Absolutely spot on Adam, if Debbie linked a “rating” to our comments, I would give you a “thumbs-up” dude! You couldn’t have said it any better, had this been a Republican or Conservative presidency scandal, there would’ve been numerous media outlets, printing outlets would’ve been in communities in Upstate Indiana day and night!

BHO has lots of his own “Gates”, what’s one more? We’ve got Kenya-Gate, Hawaii-Gate, Ayers-Gate, Rev Wright-Gate, Van Jones-Gate, ACORN-Gate, Cambridge Police-Gate, Kissing-Muzzies-Butts-Gate, Turning-the-White-House-Into-A-Hip-Hop-Club-Gate, Green-Energy-Gate, Fast-and-Furious-Gate,… the list goes on and on.

“But since the participants have a capital “D” (and a capital “L” for liberal) after their names, that ain’t gonna happen in either case.”

Actually, in the case of BHO, it was because he had a capital “M” after his name (for “muslim”). Thank you Bush and the rest of you on the left for being sooooo tolerant!

Liberal Democratic Scumbag Redundancy.

Occam's Tool on October 13, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Since it’s the Dems who forged (in Indiana…can you imagine where else shenanigans went on?) for their benefit, one can expect that human stain Debbie Blabbermouth-Schultz (who takes her love of Israel to work with her everyday./) to come out and say the evil Republicans have forged signatures in some other state. Everyday is opposite day for that disgraceful hack!

That’s right. Don’t ever forget that DS discovered the SS forgery and that Jack Cashill has exposed the two books “written” by ZerObama to NOT be written by him. The first one was written by unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. The 2nd one most likely by Jon Favreau (not the director/actor).

Rick Maddow on MSNBC will NOT be outraged (however, HE is always outraged by evil Republicans) nor will Diane Sawyer or Anderson Cooper.

No one cares about Fast and Furious, Pigford or LightSquared either! Typical. But the filth-ins are supposedly 99% of us.

Go figure: Indiana So close to Chicago. The libs probably thought Chicago was being watched for the typical get out the vote (out of the graves). So they just go somewhere else to cheat.

If you don’t think they already have this planned for EVERY STATE,in November,next year,you truly don’t know this “man”,his administration,and his friends/associates/traitors/racists,etc, outside it.

Does this surprise anyone? Their own shady pasts aside they are connected to George Soros, a Jew of Hungarian extraction who willingly collaborated with Nazis in WWII; in other words there was no gun at his back. His list of crimes goes on but the real issue here is the left and whether knowingly or unknowingly is in thrall to this Nazi pied piper? Look at how they behave and how they think and you will have your answer.

Talk , Talk, Talk, Blah, Blah , Blah

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
