REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RON PAUL
ADDRESSES VOTE FRAUD ISSUE ON RECENT CONFERENCE CALL
Republican Presidential candidate, Congressman Ron Paul, a guest on the February 15, 2008 Oregon/Washington Cacaus Conference Call, was asked a question by one of the callers, Ms. Kathy Ornstein of Los Angeles, California. Ms. Ornstein wanted to know if there was going to be a bill brought before Congress to the stop vote fraud that has been (and is) going on in America.
Dr. Paul responded that he thought there was indeed “room for that”. He also said that there had been mandates (for cleaner elections) and funds appropriated by the federal government for voting machines, but that unfortunately, for people like him who wanted paper ballots and a paper trail, they were unsuccessful in those elections.
He went on to say that the issue of vote fraud is a “major, major problem”, and that he, too, had lost elections in the past due to vote fraud. In fact, he said that he and his staff are “pretty certain” that that was the case in New Orleans and “possibly some other states” in the recent primaries.
Dr. Paul ended his remarks by stating that there are things citizens can do to help stop vote fraud, like implementing effective “ballot security” measures, but it needs to be done at the state or local level.
