True the Vote speaker: ‘leftists don’t want free and fair elections’
In a column recounting the recent national True the Vote summit, featured speaker Warner Todd Huston contends that the Houston tea party-led effort is not motivated by partisanship — illustrating his argument with attacks on liberals and a photo of another event speaker holding a cartoon of Republican Gov. Rick Perry giving the boot to Democratic Pres. Barack Obama.
Huston characterizes as “whimpering” objections by liberal news site Talking Points Memo to having its reporter barred from the event — while Huston and other right-wing writers graced the speaker’s podium, and conservative blogger Kathleen McKinley, who has a reader blog hosted by the Houston Chronicle, appeared to have no trouble gaining access to the summit.
Huston said it was no surprise that tea party group King Street Patriots shunned unfriendly liberal media members.
After all, these leftists don’t want free and fair elections. They want to be able to steal elections at will. Efforts like TTV’s threaten the left’s power to steal close elections as they have so many times.
The whining aside, it is a fact that everyone involved at the event are from the conservative side of the aisle. It is the contention of TTV that truing the vote is good for the right because vote fraud is nearly an exclusive crime of the left.
Huston notes that former Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams (whose allegations that DOJ colleagues unfairly dismissed claims of voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers Party were recently refuted by an internal review) spoke about a section in the Help America Vote Act requiring states to maintain clean and accurate voter registration rolls.
Adams informed us that the Democrats refuse to follow the law and carry out these required purges of illicit registrations.
He said that one of the things that could really shut down Democrat[ic] vote fraud is to enforce this provision. He hoped that groups could sue under this provision and force Democrats to obey the law.
King Street Patriots first garnered media attention last fall with allegations of massive voter fraud in Harris County, calling into question thousands of voter registration applications — with the cooperation of then-Harris County tax assessor-collector Leo Vasquez, a Republican.
The photo that Huston posts is of self-described ‘ACORN whistleblower’ Anita MonCrief and Earl Johnson, the leaders of the Houston-based Crispus Attacks Tea Party.
