Mehlman On Voting Fraud

Email Email Print

From the RNC:

Chairman Mehlman: “Well, one thing I can tell you is this is part of the Democratic playbook. You may remember in 2004, some news was made when a Democratic playbook was discovered which said, ‘even if there is not fraud, you should allege that there is fraud, or intimidation, and we’re going to try and gain attention.’ And you may remember back in ’04, it was the Democratic party, which both in Ohio and Florida, was stopped by court order, from harassing volunteers and misleading voters. And in fact, if you look Rush, at the whole country, we’re seeing more problems on behalf of Democrats than any of the alleged problems on behalf of Republicans.”(“The Rush Limbaugh Show,” 11/7/06)

  • Chairman Mehlman: “In New Mexico, in Bernalillo County where Heather Wilson is running, a number of Republican precincts have run out of ballots. Voters were told to leave and then return back later with an unspecified time, and were told allegedly that they were going to get a telephone call. We know that there is a long history in Bernalillo County of vote fraud that has unfortunately benefited Democrats, and that’s obviously something we’re trying to pay attention to.” (“The Rush Limbaugh Show,” 11/7/06)
  • Chairman Mehlman: “In Pennsylvania , in a number of the out-state counties there have been irregularities too. So, it seems to me, instead of immediately jumping to conclusion and assuming that there’s a problem, which our friends on the other side do for political purposes, what we need to do in all these cases is look at the facts and figure it out. [Democrats are] always crying wolf when in fact, if you look historically, they have been the ones that very often have been responsible for the irregularity.” (“The Rush Limbaugh Show,” 11/7/06)
