On Oct. 13 I led off DVN with a graf concerning an "Alert" that was on the Maricopa County Democratic Party website. If you waited until Saturday morning to go to the link provided you would not have found the "Alert". It had been removed. I followed-up today and talked to the County Recorder and the Ex. Director of the county Democratic Party. What I wrote in that graf was true to some extent. In fact, a contractor for the state Democratic Party pays $4 per registration for each registration turned-in to the County Recorders. Maricopa County has received 26,000 new registrations. Of those 26,000 only 5,000 were any good. The reasons for the rejected forms were varied and among those were some forms for legal aliens. The County Recorder has met with the contractor and a representative of the state party. She has also talked to Immigration on behalf of those who were taken in by the scheme. Is there a problem with the way legal aliens are being treated and the possibility that they may lose their ability to file for citizenship? Yes, very much so. The overriding problem, however, is paying people to gather registrations. That practice needs to stop.
There was a public hearing in California today. There are no reports yet about whether ES&S will be punished for selling uncertified voting machines to some counties. I'm sure we will hear more tomorrow....
