Thousands of twitter users across social media accused Arizona of voter fraud, suppression, and the sabotaging of the March 22 primary election. This is because thousands of voters in Arizona were stuck in long voting lines for several hours Tuesday night. So long, many were not able to vote. The long lines were the result of a sudden decrease in polling stations. In Maricopa County, officials reduced the number of polling locations by 70 and 85 percent.
As a consequence, Hillary Clinton won the Democratic primary in Arizona with roughly 58 percent of votes to Bernie Sanders’ 40 percent. A large number of Independents who had newly registered as Democrats were unable to vote, meaning they couldn’t vote for Bernie Sanders.
How could voter fraud on this scale happen in the United States. Ask the Federal Elections Committee. Or don’t, since they are completely useless. It has become common knowledge the FEC does absolutely nothing. The six-member FEC panel is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, and its purpose is to decide on and mete out punishment. However, because the 3 Republicans don’t support the panel or its mission, nothing ever happens. They have meetings, but nothing gets accomplished. There are no investigations. It’s the standard Republican theme of anarchy.
There is a petition to have the Obama Administration investigate the voter fraud and suppression in Arizona. It states:
We the people of the United States of America find this act alarming and would like a complete investigation to uncover the violations that occurred during the Arizona voting on 3/22/2016 and prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law.
FEC Commissioner Ravel says the Federal Elections Commission is unwilling to investigate almost all instances of rule-breaking. The former chair’s best efforts to fix it were stymied at every turn. According to Ravel, the only way to change things is to overhaul the whole agency, restarting with new commissioners who have impeccable qualifications, and a true motivation to do their job. She suggests that will not happen in the current political climate. Ravel said:
I think the system is already scandalous. We have so much “dark money” in the system, and so much money from a small group of people. This has led to so many in the great middle of Americans who feel they don’t have a part in the political system. So I don’t think it requires us to be at a greater rock bottom frankly. I think that we need to have some change now.
Democracy in America is fast becoming a joke. Voter fraud and suppression are running rampant. We really do need a revolution.
