Arizona is massive fraud. DON'T STAND FOR IT!!!


The democratic primary in Arizona is pure massive election rigging !

There is no way that this primary process is not intentionally plagued with so many voting problems. You could at first believe this is just badly organized and full of negligence, but this is only the excuse that is used to hide a much bigger and serious problem: election rigging. If you look at:
- the reduced number of polling stations
- the under-provision of voting ballots
- the massive (MASSIVE !) voter registration problems - the number of people denied to vote
- the fact that there are no exit polls to which one could compare the results
- the handling of these problems by the DNC
- the calling of the election for Hillary after 1% of the vote allegedly counted, even when you had still tens of thousands of persons in line waiting to vote

From US Uncut: 5 Examples of Voter Suppression in the Arizona Primary

The office of the Pima County recorder, which oversees elections in the Tucson area, received warning of a suspicious package in an adjacent garage, and workers answering calls from polling places had to put everything on hold for nearly an hour. By the time workers returned to the phones, they had to bring in additional staff to help with the call load.

According to Tucson News Now, that wasn’t the only location that received a bomb threat on primary day:

Four locations in Tucson received bomb threats on Tuesday, so the building was evacuated as a precaution. At the time of the evacuation, the Pima County Recorder’s Office had been staffing a voter help line to answer questions about voter eligibility, polling locations and other voting-related issues.

Right out of the Bush / Rove playbook!!!!!

That's fine and dandy when it's not its sole purpose. It can even be about electing its/the establishment's choice. But it can't ignore the needs and desires of the people and remain healthy and viable. The process is important, and if it looks and feels like a rip-off then the party can't come together in November.

I'm the King of the highway
I'm the Queen of the hop
You should see me
At the Governor's ball
Doing the rip-off bop
