Attention All Hackers!


We now have a distinguished (“very distinguished”), appointed Presidential Advisory Commission on Voter Integrity.

I can’t help being surprised, very surprised, that our President is still claiming massive, very massive, voter fraud.  There are dozens of excellent, very excellent, studies and research papers on the subject.  A simple, very simple, search using the phrase “voter fraud” produced a large, very large, number of hits (6,080,000), among which are various, very various, conclusions that voter fraud is statistically insignificant, very insignificant.

But insignificance is not my main, very main, concern today.  I can only wonder what a group of appointed members of an advisory committee might do with the records of (200 million?) voters.  Send them a postcard asking for proof of life?  Ask the ones who chose to register as Democrats or Independents whether they might want to make a switch?  Make those records available to already drooling, very drooling, cyber crooks making plans to grab all that information for their new, very new, credit cards, bank accounts, etc.?

Can’t help being concerned, very concerned.  (And yes, I’m imitating the style of the almost daily, very almost daily, barrage of tweets from, well, you know…..)  Puts me in mind of “Rain Man,” who said such things as: “I’m a good driver. I’m a very good driver.”  Or Demi Moore in “A Few Good Men,” who, upon hearing the judge deny her objection, said: “But your Honor, I strenuously object,” which of course didn’t persuade the judge to reconsider his ruling.

Still, I strenuously object to creating a new and massive pile of personal, very personal, information in the office of a newly appointed advisory commission.  Do they even have an office?

  1. When my wife and I arrived in Charlotte in the late 1960s, she immediately got involved in the political scene. People still talked about a man, who used to urge people to vote in the black wards. After the vote, the voter would then return to him and he would give the voter a chit, signed PRY, which would authorize payment. The blacks called the man Colonel Pry.

    In later years, my wife became the precinct chairperson for the area where we lived. This was a neighborhood of corporate employees who relocated frequently. We surveyed the precinct and viewed the voter rolls, finding many, many names of non-residents on the list. We challenged such non-residents to the Board of Elections, who then mailed a letter to each challenged resident. On return of the letter by the USPS, the Board then removed the obsolete name from the voter roll. This pared the number of potential voters down from >5000 to about 2400.

    In summary, there was potential for fraud there, though we are not aware of any that took place.

  2. At 78-years-old, I’ve been a Democrat virtually all my adult life. Formation of this advisory commission is about as embarrassing and laughable as the Russian Conspiracy and Tweet Witch Hunts. The tandem American political and journalistic downward landslides continue unabated.
