Voter Fraud in Philadelphia Already

November 4, 2008

It appears that some voting machines Philadelphia already had votes cast for Obama before the polls even opened. Amanda Carpenter of Town Hall notes:

I’m getting a tip that voting machines in Philadelphia were showing votes for Obama BEFORE the polls even opened

In the run-up to Election Day there was a nasty, partisan scuffle with the Board of Elections. Four GOP workers were removed by a liberal judge because they were “the minority party.” They purged the Republicans and deprived them of the ability to supervise the voting process.

The same thing happened in the City of Brotherly Love in 2004. About 2,000 votes were preemptively tallied for Kerry. Unrelated, but equally scary, there were reports of someone using a gun to intimidate poll workers there that year as well.

More from Redstate:

I went to Philadelphia last week as part of the ‘Lawyers for Bush’ campaign. We went to the ‘battleground state’ of Pennsylvania and were caught in a battle of physical force. We had heard about the political ‘ground war,’ but instead found ourselves in the middle of an outright war. At the end of the day, I was cornered in a parking lot by roughly 10 large men, whom the police later identified as ‘union goons.’ After trying to tip over the minivan I was sharing with another attorney, punching it relentlessly, breaking parts off and failing to drag us out, they chased us in and out of the dense urban traffic in their high-powered SUVs. Only after a frantic 911 call and a police roadblock were our assailants apprehended. Even then, a growing mob surrounded us and we had to be secreted out of town to safety by a police escort. Our experience was not unique; several other ‘Lawyers for Bush’ teams in Philadelphia reported similar violence.

Update: Amanda adds:

GOP Election Board members have been tossed out of polling stations in more than half a dozen polling stations in Philadelphia because of their party status.

A liberal judge previously ruled that court-appointed poll watchers could be NOT removed from their boards by an on-site election judge, but that is exactly what is happening.

It is the duty of election board workers to monitor and guard the integrity of the voting process.

Denying access to the minority (in this case Republican) poll watchers and inspectors is a violation of Pennsylvania state law. Those who violate the law can be punished with a misdemeanor and subjected to a fine of $1,000 and sent to prison between one month and two years.

Those on site as describing it as “pandemonium” and there may be video coming of the chaos.

Some of the precincts where Republicans have been removed are: the 44th Ward, 12th and 13th divisions; 6th Ward, 12th division; 32nd Ward, Division 28.

“Election board officials guard the legitimacy of the election process and the idea that Republicans are being intimidated and banned for partisan purposes does not allow for an honest and open election process,” said McCain-Palin spokesman Ben Porritt in a statement to Townhall.

The City of Brotherly Love was roiled in controversy during the 2004 election because of rigged voting machines that showed nearly 2,000 votes for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry before the polls had opened. A man also used a gun to intimidate poll workers at Ward 30, division 11 in 2004.


MM and Hotair have a video of Black Panther Militants “guarding” the polling stations in Philadelphia.  City of Brotherly Love?



  1. the obamedia better cover this

  3. So republicans I have a question for ya. How does it feel!! The democrats have taken back the whitehouse and congress!! Now I can honeslty say I am proud to be an American!!

  4. @Billy It feels pretty terrible. Due to inevitable Supreme Court resignations and appointments, the mass genocide of the generations will continue.

  5. @Billy You should be proud to be an American despite whom our democratic process selects simply by virtue that the democratic process exists.

  6. I saw your blog and thought it worth a remark.

    The election frauds of this (bush)administration harmed our nation and democratic process.

    No matter how rabid a supporter of the Republican party, or
    of the Bush administration, we are Americans, and we stand together or fall together.

    McCain could not overcome the harmful effects of the last 8 years. He is a good man.

    It is time to be Americans again.

    Lets move forward together and put the years of devisions
    behind us for our own survival and because in hard times, the American Spirit can and does rise to the occasion as neighbors.

    So neighbor, fellow American, we are in this together, let’s
    do our best in our best spirit to address the problems we face and pull together.

  7. 1-The President of the Country has nothing to do with the elections process. That would be in the hands of you state Secretary of State or similar position. You might want to know what the President of your country does.

    2-I hear a lot from Obama supporters and Obama that we are in this together and this will be a bipartisan effort. Is it just me or does everyone expect the conservatives to reach accross the aisle? Bipartisan means that both parties work together. The differences will be there. I am not going to abandon my beliefs because Obama wants us to do this together, the same way I don’t expect you or any other citizen to abandon their beliefs.

    The beauty of this country is that we can all have different ideas. We can then debate about these ideas and learn from eachother. Debate also sparks an individual to research and obtain knowledge; that is the essence of debate. Additionally, that is the true meaning of bipartisanship and what the First Amendment is meant to protect. Abandoning my beliefs because the one in power says I should become one with his plan is called a Theocracy. I encourage you to start your own blog or something similar to enlighten those who are in search of knowledge or entertainment. I would love to hear about your political or personal beliefs; it will make me a better person.

    3-Time to be Americans again? When did we stop? Did you renounce your citizenship? This talking point is ridiculous free from any logic.

    4-Thank you for commenting. Feel free to return and comment whenever you like. We, at Trust, but Verify, enjoy listenting to other opinions.

  8. For the record, I did not vote for Obama or campaign for him.

    Yes, it is time to be Americans again-
    contrary to the past 8
    years of manipulation, intimidations, retaliations, and misuse of authority and trust of high officials.

    When Bush entered office he had my support. It took a great deal to destroy that support. Now he is leaving office.

    The new president, has my support until he abuses his position excessively, if that should take place.

    The notion that there are two Americas,
    that half the citizens are “the enemy”
    in order to manipulate the other half
    is bad for our nation and people.
    We need to drop that.

    Listen or read McCain’s concession speech which is pure McCain, and absolutely pure American, and you get the heading to steer by.

  10. So now after roghly 17 months, after the intimidation at the polls, calling anyone who opposed Obama a racist, after the 7 years of Bush bashing, the hatred, the crying and whining….hows it feel Obama supporters?
    How does it feel to have been lied to, to see that change wasnt really for you at all. That what his agenda really is. I should be laughing at your ignorance for supporting someone for color instead of qualifications but instead I am just sad for our country. I would never say” I am finally proud to be American or proud of my country” because I am always an American and always proud of her people. I wonder how the rest of you feel now….
