That’s what my friend and radio patriarch Hugh Hewitt says.
But it’s going to be close, and you can count on the DFL cheating.
Minnesota Majority is taking the bull by the horns:
“We are putting a price on the heads of anyone who would attempt to organize people with the intent of cheating in our election,” explained Jeff Davis, president of Minnesota Majority, a coalition member organization. “We’ve received reports of organizers enticing people to vote fraudulently with small financial incentives such as gift cards. We’ve also seen evidence of this illegal practice in the official incident logs from the 2008 election. We will now offer individuals a more lucrative incentive for turning-in these organizers of voter fraud.”
The group launched their Election Integrity program last week to engage citizens to help detect and deter voter fraud. The program includes training people on how to spot fraudulent activity and a call center to handle reports of fraudulent activity by the public. Radio ads are now running to expand awareness of the program and recruit more “fraud spotters.” Another ad is planned closer to the election warning of the consequences of voter fraud and encouraging people to report suspicious election activity to a toll free number. Volunteers will log incidents in a database and refer to law enforcement as needed.
“We’ve got a really robust program here,” said Randy Liebo, an organizer with the North Star Tea Party Patriots who are also participating in Election Integrity Watch. “With a strong public awareness campaign that involves several media outlets and grassroots networking, we’re building a team of informed fraud spotters. Offering rewards for the identification and conviction of organizers of voter fraud strengthens our program even more. This is like a “wanted” poster placing a bounty on fraudsters. If you do the crime, somebody’s going to turn you in.”
We’ll be talking about the program with Dan McGrath on the NARN on Saturday, during the 2PM hour.
If all goes well, it could singlehandedly revive the economy in Ramsey county.
