billgrr, I included a present-day status to this story.

"...can we conclusively state that this NC "voter fraud" was committed in a bipartisan fashion? Perhaps it's too soon to tell. Stay tuned."

I admit it: it was a provocative post. It's not persuasive yet, but it was provocative.

Rest assured, folks. If the NC story proves to be true, I'll tell you. If the NC story proves to be false, billgrr will tell you. In spades. With bile. And rejoicing. The End.

wral . com continued...

"Sen. Angela Bryant, D-Nash, pointed out that the current changes in voting laws and the requirement for voters to present photo identification at the polls will not stop anyone from voting in two states.

"(Rep. Tim Moore, R-Cleveland) said he believes at least 36,000 people committed voter fraud in 2012.

""I would say, if you've got a first name, a last name and a date of birth, you've got the same person. What are the odds of that?" he said, adding that the numbers would be higher if the largest states were part of the compact."

Let's see now...can we conclusively state that this NC "voter fraud" was committed in a bipartisan fashion? Perhaps it's too soon to tell. Stay tuned.

"...the Republican ploy to have their votes counted numerous times..."

wral . com/state-elections-officials-seek-tighter-security/13533579/

"(North Carolina) elections officials said Wednesday that they're investigating hundreds of cases of voters who appear to have voted in two states and several dozen who appear to have voted after their deaths.

"State lawmakers last year mandated the State Board of Elections to enter into an "Interstate Crosscheck" – a compact of 28 states that agreed to check their voter registration records against those of other states. The program is run by a Kansas consortium, checking 101 million voter records. The largest states – CA, FL, NY, and TX – are not part of the consortium."

Legend sez "any Dem can win."

Is that a perdiction?

billgrr has a loooong memory for perdictions, but unfortunately, that's only for Republican perdictions.

billgrr has no use for equal time.

And thanks again, Larry D.

I got a kick out of Mother Jones uncovering a town hall tape of Rand Paul suggesting Cheney changed his view on Iraq after he became their CEO and the resulting NON-Compete BILLION dollar contract Haliburton received immediately after the occupation.

"After all that, we are asked to pretend their mistakes never happened and elect some more".....What.....What? Republicans?

"Don’t bring the Democrats back"

"We are now in year 2014 and the implementation of the ACA has been a series of mistakes at a cost of billions of our dollars, loss of health insurance by millions, false promises and a loss of confidence and respect in our president and executive offices. After all that, we are asked to pretend their mistakes never happened and elect some more Democrats?"

Well JackA, how about we start a war on false premises, spend trillions,kill millions, lose respect & confidence in that president as well as any in the exec. office and, AND elect some more Republicans?

As usual, mule is off on his anti liberal tangents. Republicans have labeled the Dems as tax and spend but in reality, history- yes factual history, has shown that the Republican party has outspent the previous democratic administrations that they follow in every instance clear back to beyond Ronnie the God. Clearly, Republicans deserve the spending title.

The dysfunction of Congress would surely give pause to giving Congressman Cramer a free pass.....However, with all that Energy sector lobbyist monies floating to the top it might be difficult for Mr. Sinner. Unless,the people of North Dakota look down their "well" and all they see is an oil slick that could have been prevented??

If the Democrats could go to the State of North Dakota and ask the state election commission for a couple of hundred million dollars from the general fund to finance a campaign to win those elected public official offices, I'm sure the Democrats would come up with a way to spend every nickel of it and then they could finally get a grip on the rest of the general fund monies to make sure it all goes to those who deserve it more. The State of North Dakota would finally then once and for all be able to wisely spend the revenue generated from oil extraction tax, instead of the Republicans giving it all away to every billionaire from Wall Street standing there with their hands out, 24/7.

Elect Democrats and give all of North Dakota's tax coffers to them and not Wall Street.

A wise decision. Can't lose. The Democrats will work hard at managing the state's money, the Republicans will fritter it away.

You can count on the Democrats to spend the money like they always do.
