Democrats are pushing the notion of mail-in voting, hoping the unsuspecting will think it’s just an extension of absentee voting. It’s not.
It’s a means to facilitate voter fraud—also known of “harvesting votes”.
It’s widely acknowledged that harvesting votes brought JFK into the win column in Illinois when thousands of Chicago votes magically appeared for Senator Kennedy, from vapor. Nixon, somewhat to his credit, did not dispute the count.
Facilitate voter fraud—“harvesting votes”
But, there’s an earlier example of Democrats harvesting votes in the 1947 Senatorial election in Texas between “a legend in Texas politics and a young congressman from Austin.
The legend, Coke Stevenson, had been the Speaker of the Texas House, Lieutenant Governor, and twice elected Governor. The congressman was Lyndon Johnson.” They were running for a U.S. Senate seat from Texas.
I wrote of it on November 27, 2007 for the American Thinker website:
“When the Texas Election Bureau closed on Election Day, Stevenson led by 854 votes. But the counting wasn’t done, and neither was the voting. Resolution of the contested results would be a precursor of the 2000 Presidential Election drama in Florida, except more crudely complicated. Johnson eventually won by 87 votes in an election where 988,295 votes were allegedly cast. ‘Allegedly’ is the operative word.
The story of the ‘47 Texas Senatorial election is told by Robert A. Caro in the second (of three, so far) volume of his highly acclaimed biography of Lyndon Johnson. In Means of Ascent, he describes how Johnson stole the election from Stevenson with a tactic that Governor W. Lee “Pappy” O’Daniel had used to defeat Johnson in the 1941 Senatorial election. Caro tells why statewide candidates delayed reporting results from their “friendly” counties.
An axiom of Texas politics held that ‘The lead in the runoff always wins’; in other words, the candidate ahead by the end of Election Day, at which time most of the vote had been counted, almost invariably could ‘hold out’—delay reporting—enough boxes to keep a reserve to counter changes made by the other side; since both sides were changing votes, the side with the lead could keep the lead by changing enough votes to offset the other side’s changes. (Caro,pp. 309-310)
Democrat Party manipulates votes to “fix” election results
In 1941, Johnson, over-confident of a win, let all his counties report on Election Day. O’Daniel held some of his back until he knew how many votes he needed to win. Johnson learned from his mistake, and didn’t repeat it in 1947. After the polls closed, his friends in Hidalgo, and other nearby Southeast Texas border counties, found the votes he needed to win.
Johnson’s big vote bundler was George Berham Parr, who solely controlled the Democratic Party machine in Duvall and Jim Hogg Counties, just north of Hidalgo County. Parr also exercised significant influence in other Southeast Texas border counties including Webb, Cameron, Nueces, and Hidalgo. Caro quotes the description of Parr, El Patron, written by a Corpus Christi Caller-Times reporter named James M. Rowe, who knew Rio Grande Valley politics well:
It is not easy for the average person to imagine what it was like…to oppose Boss Parr in his own county. A word from him was sufficient to get a man fired from his job or denied welfare payments or surplus commodities distributed to the needy. Merchants who opposed him faced the sudden loss of most of their trade. Little farmer and ranchers were intimated by the pistoleros. (p.185)
Parr’s most ominous pistolero was his six-gun totting enforcer, Luis Salas. Days after the polls closed, Salas added 200 votes for Johnson to Ballot Box 13 in Jim Webb County. The fact that all the votes were recorded in the same handwriting was a clue. But the box was never examined by those who adjudicated the election results; it had disappeared by then.
Revised returns gave Johnson a 3,000-vote margin of victory in Hidalgo County. In the six Southeast Texas border-area counties most heavily influenced by the Boss Parr machine, Johnson tallied 10,323 votes to Stevenson’s 1,329. In Parr’s home county of Duvall, it was Johnson 2,908 – Stevenson 38.”
This illustrates how the Democrat Party manipulates votes to “fix” election results, and are preparing to do it at the Presidential level on November 3, 2020.
America beware: The Democrat Party will do whatever it takes to win an election.
