WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - About 46,000 people, most of them Democrats, are illegally registered to vote in New York City and in Florida, the liberal New York Daily News reported today.
Why "At least"? Because:
"The investigation doesn't include other states or even the suburbs of New York"!
Governor George Pataki - "The Democratic Assembly keeps blocking reforms and making it really tough to pass federal voter registration standards,"
Geeee, I wonder why. Surely Democrats have an explanation for their obstruction of this legislation....
Democrats say the problem involves Pataki and the Senate Republican leadership. "Everyone knows there's an undercurrent in the Senate that wants to confer with the governor before passing anything," said Assemblyman Keith Wright, chairman of the Election Law Commission.
Except, ya know, NOT. "It's not OUR fault....it's those cautious lackadaisical Republicans. It surely isn't us Democrats who benefit to the tune of at least 31,000 more illegal votes if we stall this until after the election."
Wright agreed with Pataki, however, that New York's failure to pass the act has a direct effect on the double registration controversy. The state comptroller's office has $68 million waiting to be used for a centralized list that would identify voters registered in multiple states and counties. That money cannot be used until New York passes the reforms.
Donks get AT LEAST 31,000 extra illegal votes if the measure fails to pass and take effect before the election, and they say Republicans are stalling the legislation. Ahem....BULLSHIT!
