Exeedingly Stupid

Some people give sacks full ofhammers a bad name.  Such a person is the Electoral Office official who has been done for influencing a vote by a rest home resident.

The Electoral Commission is investigating the case of a 93-year-old rest-home resident who says a voting official cast a vote for National in her name, but against her wishes. 

Isn't it funny how there is no reporting of any misdemeanors by the officials of the leftist parties?

But when you read on down you find the newspaper is lieing.  The official dd NOT cast a vote against the lady's wishes.

Once challenged, the JP followed correct procedure by spoiling the paper, ticking every box and issuing her mother a new one, which was then marked according to her wishes.

Someone please tell Faifax the election is over and they lost.

What I wonder is who pushed the lady to lay the complaint.

If this lady was not capable of casting her own vote then I doubt she is capable of initiating a complaint. Perhaps a wee look at the daughters political affiliations might be appropriate.

An example of attempted electoral fraud is uncovered and the right's reaction is to investigate the family of the victim with a view to smearing them. Nice work pdm, Slater would be proud.

Spinoza - perhaps you do not know any 90 year olds.

This has a smell to it and not regarding the JP who seems to have operated by the rules.

Spinoza said...

Well he got caught so he didn't have much choice after that, but yep a smear campaign against the victim's family is what's called for! It's in the right-wing attack machine handbook. Stay classy!

Yeah Spinoza, just considering any investigation of one example of the can of worms that surrounds "assisted voting" would be smearing and have Slater involvement.
You dont think possible fraudulent activity by anyone around voting security needs sunlight.

I have personal knowledge of manipulation of people with insufficient skills in many guises being voted virtually by proxy and overwhelmingly they are supporters of the socialist left.
Of course when they do it is all good eh.

`Once challenged, the JP followed correct procedure by spoiling the paper, ticking every box and issuing her mother a new one, which was then marked according to her wishes.'

All sorted - to everyones satisfaction it would seem.

I again ask the question - who drove the complaint?
a) Not the 93 year old her vote was recorded where she wanted it.
b) A nursing home employee - possible but unlikely.
c) A family member - highly probable given the reference to the 93 year olds daughter.

BTW Spinoza - in your 7.21am comment you compare me to Cameron Slater. Thank you for the compliment but I am purely speculating - when Cam runs with these he is always well researched and right on the money.

Someone who knows attempted electoral fraud when they hear about it, I expect.

No doubt your suspicions about Mrs Towsey and her daughter being lefies are correct - if they were Nat supporters they probably wouldn't get worked up about a dodgy JP voting National on the old lady's behalf. So what? The dodgy JP did try voting National on her behalf, so the complaint's valid, whoever makes it.

pdm said...

Milt - no problem with that but I will wait and see what, if anything, develops with interest.

o my mind there is something about this complaint that does not `ring true'. I may well be proved wrong but my instincts tell me otherwise.

I see mountains being made out of molehills. Is there any evidence that this was anything other than an honest mistake on the part of the JP, that was quickly rectified as soon as it was noticed? Or is it just more fun to throw accusations around based on political bias?

Ursula said...

Any move to tighten up on "assisted" voting has to be a good thing.
Evidence of "assisted" voting has been identified in previous Electoral Petitions where marginal seat results have been challenged by the defeated Party.

"Is there any evidence that this was anything other than an honest mistake on the part of the JP"

That's kind of like asking if the BBC's foreknowledge of the collapse of WTC7 was evidence of something other than an honest mistake.
