Atlantic City Absentee Ballots

   It will be interesting to see what effect absentee ballots have on November’s elections.   Atlantic City’s experience with absentee and special absentee messenger ballots are notorious.   Thanks to Atlantic City’s corrupt absentee ballot machines the Republican National Committee added a party plank to address the issue at the behest of Atlantic County Republican Chairman, Keith Davis.   The plank reads:

“We support efforts by state and local election officials to ensure integrity in the voting process and to prevent voter fraud and abuse, particularly as it relates to voter registration and absentee ballots.”

At the very least, the absentee ballot efforts will provide some entertainment.

   In scoping out YouTube I found two videos illustrating a literal battle from the absentee ballot war in June’s Democrat Mayoral primary.   ElectionJournal posted a video entitled “Street Politics AC Style – Jumped, Robbed and Impersonated.”   Here is the interview with Lorenzo Langford supporter Marcus Wilson.

   ElectionJournal.org also features a video interview with David Callaway the day of the June primary election.  In it, Mr. Callaway vows “We have a grassroots organization.  And no matter what they do, we are going to always continue to get these people to vote.”

Enjoy!
