A small tax-exempt political group with ties to wealthy liberals like billionaire financier George Soros quietly helped elect 11 reform-minded progressive Democrats as secretaries of state to oversee the election process in battleground states and keep Republican “political operatives from deciding who can vote and how those votes are counted.”
Known as the Secretary of State Project, the organization was formed by liberal activists in 2006 to put Democrats in charge of state election offices, where key decisions often are made in close races on which ballots are counted and which are not.
SOSP has sought donations by describing the contributions as a “modest political investment” to elect “clean candidates” to the secretary of state posts.
Named after Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code, so-called 527 political groups — such as SOSP — have no upper limit on contributions and no restrictions on who may contribute in seeking to influence the selection, nomination, election, appointment or defeat of candidates to federal, state or local public office. They generally are not regulated by the FEC, creating a soft-money loophole.
It goes on to say:
Democrats accused Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris and Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, both Republicans, of manipulating the elections in favor of GOPcandidates — charges Mrs Harris and Mr Blackwell denied.
“Does anyone doubt that these two secretaries of state … made damaging partisan decisions about purging voter rolls, registration of new voters, voting machine security, the location of precincts, the allocation of voting machines, and dozens of other critical matters?” SOSP asked on its website.
The article goes on and on and you'll want to read it, you must read it to be informed and active. Please sign up for working the polls in November 2012. I've already related several stories of Democrats running my precincts, and have other important information of voter fraud from the left HERE, HERE, HERE, ESPECIALLY HERE and HERE, THIS AMAZING ONE!, and THIS YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST READ .
Please, let's REALLY get clean voting back into this country..........we can see what's being done against it. Republicans, nay, ALL AMERICANS, should want to go back to NO early voting days (Europeans vote on weekends to make sure people can vote, why can't WE?), no "provisional ballots," and voting with an ID that's swiped and can't be presented at another precinct, but......it's too much to do, too expensive...and our democracy hangs in the balance, as you can see in this article.
By the way, if anybody can find information about this Secretary of State Project in the NY Times or Washington Post, I'd like to see it: I Googled, but the information is only in Conservative venues. Funny, I'd have thought...for transparency and honesty, that.............well................. (what was I THINKING?)
This country is perilously close to CHANGE nobody HOPED for.............................but Soros.
