Purged, Hacked, Switched: On Election Fraud Allegations in Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders

May 12, 2016
Purged, Hacked, Switched: On Election Fraud Allegations in Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders

by Doug Johnson Hatlem--Counter Punch

Antonio Gonzalez of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP) is no stranger to exit polling misses. Gonzalez ran a national exit poll of Latino voters in 2004 that proved more correct than Edison Research’s polling for the National Election Pool, but has defended Edison against claims that they misread the Latina and Latino vote in the Nevada caucuses on the Democratic side in 2016. Last week I asked Gonzalez why exit polls are missing so badly for primaries between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. “The exit polls,” he believes, “were accurate in who actually turned out, in who tried to vote.”

A woman named Chloe (whose personal information is otherwise redacted below) describes registering as a new voter more than a week before New York’s deadline with the Department of Motor Vehicles. In spite of persistent efforts, including a record of more than a dozen calls and emails stretching to page fifteen of Exhibit A in Election Justice USA (EJUSA)’s lawsuit filed in New York City, Chloe still has not been registered as a Democrat.

Included in well over a hundred of pages of similar proofs in the Exhibits, another denied voter named Daniel provided a copy of an email sent by Debbie Wasserman Schultz to registered Democrats on April 19, the day of the New York election, encouraging them to get out and vote. Daniel’s registration was purged or switched in the 24 hours before he tried, and was denied, the right to vote.

While Gonzalez attributes much of the trouble in New York and Arizona to confusion over who was eligible to vote, CounterPunch has reviewed details and supporting evidence from databases of voters wrongly denied the right to vote in closed primary contests between Clinton and Sanders. Three databases with records of over a thousand cases show that would-be voters who followed proper procedures to register as Democrats were disenfranchised – either denied the right to vote or forced to vote provisionally or by affidavit.

For those who did vote provisionally or by affidavit, the vast majority of their votes have not counted. This includes 91,000 uncounted affidavit ballots in New York City alone and 20,000 uncounted provisional ballots in Maricopa County, Arizona. For Arizona, CounterPunch reviewed each individual record in a 151 person database collected and published by the online collective Anonymous. Details of 716 entries in a denied-voter database are summarized in Exhibit I of EJUSA’s New York City lawsuit. The third database includes records from would-be voters experiencing registration problems in a wide variety of states from California (which does not vote until June 7th) to Pennsylvania as well as more than one hundred cases, from counties throughout New York, that have not yet been incorporated into EJUSA’s lawsuits. EJUSA gave us limited access to the databases for verification purposes.

The impacts of registrations denied or switched and of voters improperly purged from voting rolls, even when they followed stated laws and procedures, goes well beyond those 100,000+ uncounted ballots, however. Thousands more voters appear to have been denied ballots altogether or simply stayed home when online State records told them they would not be allowed to have their vote counted. The only available conclusion is that forces supporting the campaign to elect Hillary Clinton were willing to use any means necessary – legal, gray, or flatly illegal – to put down the Bernie Sanders insurgency that threatened to upend Clinton’s coronation as the presumptive Democratic nominee.

CounterPunch has obtained a copy of the lawsuit filed by EJUSA in New York City and the accompanying Exhibits. Together with the databases and emerging story, they paint a picture of a Democratic machine every bit as corrupt as the Tammany bosses of the 1920’s and 1930’s who opposed Franklin Delano Roosevelt at every turn.

1. Uh, that 126K purged voters in NY would have been a mostly for HRC

 

Those purged voters were in an area that went about 65% for HRC. Bernie would have lost by more and probably lost at least one delegate if that purge had not happened. Be careful what you wish for.

Opposing something because it's morally wrong, rather than basing your position on whether or not it personally benefits HRC, is as alien a concept to most of them as it is to their candidate.

okay with voter fraud is bullshit. and the suggestion that she would do it in the primary as some bernie supporters have suggests they are naive, stupid, or rovian trolls

and it is really naive to suggest there is no difference on environment and the supremes.

are you so principled or propagandized by the right and its 25 years of hillary lies that you really believe that?

those are proven republican tactics that will be ramped up this year by the desperate republican election thieves

if dems suggested cases of push polling by hillary of bernie campaigns or similar tricks then i might believe them but the suggestion by bernie supporters that hillary is messing with machines and voter rolls and is purging hacking and switching is silly and might as well be considered republican style trolling, meant or inadvertent through ignorance.

republican trolling on liberal sites is real

79. not snappy also bro

the biggest political mistake in history, considering the time we've lost on global warming alone, is the left's total ignorance of the right's ability to use 1200 coordinated radio stations to create the made to order constituencies and elect the ignorant sycophants that now make up the new republican party. by ignoring talk radio (like not protesting those stations and the universities that support them), the left has allowed the right to enable, intimidate and fool our reps.

at a cheap $1000/hr x 15hrs/day x 1200 stations, rw talk radio is worth 4.68 BIL$/ year or 390MIL$ /month FREE for coordinated global warming denial, pro republican wall st think tank propaganda, free market deregulation bullshit, swiftboating, and the hate and fear used to get people to vote republican.

as long as the left ignores that $390mil/mo advantage it cannot collectively say it is getting bernie's back. that will be very evident if he gets the nomination.

all the 'principled' liberals who complain about money corrupting politics and media, and corrupt and spineless reps while ignoring that factor are hypocrites.

there is no evidence hillary dems are using anything outside of hardball political tactics

unless there's proof that primary voters favoring a particular primary candidate are being purged, as opposed to dem candidates in general, automatically blaming clinton for crap likely put in place by republicans long before the dem candidates were even decided, and especially before it could have been known the dem primary was still undecided, serves only the election thieving republicans

There has been no evidence proving she is responsible for any alleged fraud. She was not involved in the AZ mess nor the NY mess in Brooklyn which likely hurt her more than Bernie based on results in the area.

The majority of the voting members of the party so far have preferred her. There's nothing fraudulent about that. Please join this fellow Bernie voter in not being a sore loser.

I know it's impossible for the Bernie fanatics here to believe but some of us place a higher value on the collective party than on a single individual. Then again, the Bernie tent has never been one of inclusiveness.

And I repeat myself, there has been no evidence linking the fraud to her. I never said there was no fraud nor did I say there was no evidence at all. I did say a lot of Bernie voters have rushed to convict Clinton without any evidence. There's no doubt about that.

You will find a lot of posts where I have criticized Bernie's supporters on here because (1) they seem to post outlandish nonsense and (2) I didn't vote for Clinton so I don't pay nearly as much attention to posts from her supporters.

This entire conversation only reinforces the belief about the lack of inclusiveness in the Bernie tent when a Bernie voter is attacked for having different views.

11. Someone is busy trying to make liberals think voting is rigged, to suppress their votes only and to

cause divisiveness within the Dem Party, to pit Bernie supporters against the party and turn them off to politics permanently. It is a brilliant plan and is working quite well, if you are Trump. The same plan isn't deployed against the Republicans, so whopever is behind this wants them to keep voting. This operation seem especially focused on Berners becoming disillusioned permanently, long range liberal voter suppression.

12. There is no big mystery about AZ. Hillary had much stronger support among older voters

who are much more likely to vote absentee -- and therefore not be counted in the exit polls. And the voting problems in Mariposa county would have hurt Hillary more, because it was a largely Latino county and she had her strongest support there.

In NY, they are investigating the purge, but it affected voters across Brooklyn so it wasn't targeted to Bernie voters. All five NYC boroughs including Brooklyn had large majorities for Hillary. So the purge cut into her vote count more than it would have Bernie's, since most of his support was upstate.

are much more likely to vote absentee. So if you don't count many Hillary voters -- because they already voted -- your initial exit polls are going to be off.

19. Fraud was proven. I don't care about that little factoid.

It's like saying, well, Alabama went for Bush, to prove there was no cheating in Florida. What you said may be true, I don't care enough to check, because it's irrelevant to the larger story. Fraud was committed.

24. What fraud was proven in Arizona? They shouldn't have shut down the polling places,

but it was announced in advance and that didn't constitute fraud. So where was significant fraud?

26. So are you arguing against absentee ballots? Both Washington and Oregon do all mail-in

ballots for everything. After we vote, we can go online and make sure our ballots got counted, and there have been no concerns raised here about fraud.

is the lie Hillary told at the debate stating Bernie gave support to the death squads in Central America (specifically El Salvador) and to the militia (minutemen) at our own border.

14. Here is what enabled massive country-wide Voter-Affiliation-Switching:

PowerProfile®
Voter Registration

ES&S PowerProfile® is a voter registration and election management application that enables election officials to register voters and conduct elections from a central data store. This system allows for both single jurisdictions and states to manage elections from the same interface. Election officials are able to register voters, check eligibility, conduct election activities such as prepare absentee and early voting, recruit election workers, create poll books and rosters, verify petitions, and maintain voter records using a single software solution.

Because PowerProfile is HAVA compliant, it provides unique statewide identifiers to voter records, allows for statewide duplicate checking, and is customizable to meet specific requirements of the customer. PowerProfile also provides individual jurisdictions within a state total control over their voter registration data through role-based access controls.

SOURCE: http://www.essvote.com/products/14/19/Voter-Registration-Software/powerprofile/

Funded by the GOP congress after 2012 for implementation in time for the 2016 election cycle, this software required states to install ES&S central vote tabulators running GEM$ software with which this new Central electronic voter registration software is integrated.

This is the tool and the means. We are seeing the results unfolding. If this did not scare or concern you when Congress funded it, it should certainly give you pause now since we have extensive evidence across the country at this point of Voter-Affiliation-Switching.

IF you're a Bernie supporter it is! Onward! ...to the convention!
We'll flip those super delegates to Bernie like this! , and they'd better flip or else we'll do this!





The desperation is getting pathetic. More sleazy unfounded accusations from the supporters of the campaign that said they despise such tactics and yet has engaged in them over and over.
DNC firewall breach, posting pages in major newspapers saying Hillary died, or Warren endorsed Sanders.
accusations of Hillary rigging the coin toss.
every election was supposedly rigged when Bernie lost!

It's definitely entertaining!

49. The other available conclusions are anything anyone dreams up, apparently.

There is a dirty trickster at work, and we knew who they were well before their new trick became Pin Our Dirty Tricks on Hillary.

It's not entertaining, it is either 1.) how Rovian plutocrats upend the process to install whomever can act like President for them, or 2.) a stealthy plot to make Gorege W. Bush the second worst President in history instead of the very worst.

P.S. You are is written you're as a contraction.

62. It's very entertaining.

 

The constant stream of bull pucky that comes from Sanders supporters is truly ridiculous. I cannot take many of them seriously anymore or the infinite conspiracy theories.
They are the antithesis of the very values they profess to hold.

They are investigating the problem. In NO way can you say who was going to vote for Hillary or Sanders . That's complete speculation and to make the claim is pure hogwash.

I sure am sorry for my spelling error. I shall correct it.

52. Yep! Bernie should be the nominee not Hillary Clinton.


"100,000+ uncounted ballots, however. Thousands more voters appear to have been denied ballots altogether or simply stayed home when online State records told them they would not be allowed to have their vote counted. The only available conclusion is that forces supporting the campaign to elect Hillary Clinton were willing to use any means necessary – legal, gray, or flatly illegal – to put down the Bernie Sanders insurgency that threatened to upend Clinton’s coronation as the presumptive Democratic nominee.

CounterPunch has obtained a copy of the lawsuit filed by EJUSA in New York City and the accompanying Exhibits. Together with the databases and emerging story, they paint a picture of a Democratic machine every bit as corrupt as the Tammany bosses of the 1920’s and 1930’s who opposed Franklin Delano Roosevelt at every turn."

69. I know...

but it's been longer than we think...as time has flown...'s

After Obama's Campaign and Election we sort of forgot about it... Hard to believe that was 8 years and MORE if you count in Kerry's loss in 2004 when he didn't fight over the voting irregularities that showed up--even though Dem Activists Groups did try to sort/challenge the numbers for that "election."

So pretty much from '04 and on through Kerry and then Obama's run and two terms...there wasn't much discussion about the aging and vulnerable Voting Machines and the past history of Voter Disenfranchisment. But the PTB didn't forget about it. They were working hard..in the background-- encouraged by the lack of follow through by the Voting Rights Activists who had been decimated without Party Support to be able to get any follow through for what they had discovered.

Been a long time for those us who cared about those issues..but, good to see them back on the table. Bernie's whole campaign exposes the Voting Problems..in a NEW WAY that may get another whole movement going by the Millenials who are experiencing it right before their eyes. We pass the baton!

73. US Elections Are A Joke

Suspect easily hacked voting machines, hodge lodge procedures depending on where you live.

Nonsense restrictions on registration.

Oh and about any state chief official can flip results easily.

Canada and a host of countries now use paper ballots with foolproof security and witnessed counting.

Why people tend to accept our corruptable system is beyond me.
