Need Help Voting?: Detroit “Pre”-Votes for You

Need help voting? In a solution to the Palm Beach fiasco (butterfly ballots with old people who couldn’t figure it out), the City of Detroit “pre-votes” for you.
As reported by Detroit’s ABC news affiliate, some Detroit voters received their absentee ballots with the votes already cast for Detroit City Clerk Jackie Currie and her buddy, embattled Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (“the Hip Hop Mayor”).
Strangely, Currie–who administers all elections in Detroit and distributes the ballots–got more votes than any candidate in the August primary. Gee, I wonder why.

Detroit’s Pre-Voted Absentee Ballots

All of this is on top of a Sunday Detroit News investigation that showed many absentee ballots–as many as 380,000!–registered to dead people, fraudulent/invalid addresses, and mentally incapacitated voters. The News reported that Currie’s paid workers “help” incapacitated voters in a back room at nursing homes.
The paper also reported that these suspicious “practices” date back to 1964, when Currie and her late husband were charged with soliciting people to sign applications for absentee ballots and “advising” them how to mark their ballots.
With Detroit as the largest voting bloc in the State of Michigan, is it any surprise that John Kerry won the State–with Jackie Currie on his side?
Unfortunately, The Detroit News (a/k/a “The Detroit Spews”) gives credence to Malik Shabazz as a legitimate Currie critic. He is a racist and anti-Semite in the Farrakhan mold, who blamed Israel and the Jews at a 9/11 memorial right after the 2001 attacks–conspiracy theories he has repeated at various speeches and appearances nationwide. Incredibly, the Spews doesn’t mention a lick of this. Par for the course at this apologist paper for radical Islam.

I read somewhere that things were goin’ Detroit-style in Gary,Indiana-and there was actual support
for the idea of electing a watt boy because of it;in Detroit,I think the only hope is to elect the ex-Detroit cop who owns Baker’s Keyboard Lounge-the world’s oldest jazz club.I think he’s
one of the few cat’s hip enough south of eight mile to know the difference between Malik Shabbaz and Stan Getz.

What was Kerry’s margin of victory in Michigan in 2004?

It’s a perfect scheme to keep Detroit an economic slum. How else do you keep new people with new ideas out of a town that’s undeniably corrupt?

I would love to see heads roll because of this, but you know it’ll never happen.
I do find fault with your not so vague claim that John Kerry was pre-voted for in Detroit. Kerry would have won in Detroit no matter what, and you know it.

At what point does this prompt a federal investigation? If this is in The Detroit News, it seems to be pretty public knowledge. I can’t see how in the world they could escape an investigation.

Is it really liberal to cook? If I didn’t I’d be going out ever nioght and yes, I sew too. I learned it from a vet from Nam. If I’m a homo, then I’m a homo, but I know how to grow my food, buy it and make some really tasty meals. I am a PETA member (People Eating Tasty Animals) Sorry Deb, I love pork too.,

Election fraud and MSM/DNC thuggery

The rest will undoubtedly be filled in by individuals resembling the folks in these mugshots.
If Michigan’s Democrat machine has a data base of 380,000 names with which to pad the vote every time there is an election, how did that database impact…

Yes, Kerry would have won Detroit even without the extra 380,000 votes that the Democratic Party stole for him. But electoral votes are decided on a state-by-state basis – not city-by-city. Detroit is part of Michigan. If Kerry won Michigan by fewer than 380,000 votes, then that “victory” is even less legitimate than it already was.

I understand what you’re saying salt, but I still don’t think Bush would’ve won Mich even with your claim that the Dems “stole” the election from him.
