Let the fraud begin!  Roll Eyes

Quote:
The bill, first introduced by Republican state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain, was prompted by a report that shed light on eight Virginia counties that had more registered voters on their voter rolls than eligible voters.


Where's the beef?

Isn't this the same guy who wanted to allow convicted felons to be able to vote?

He figured they'd be Democrat voters!

This really is not a surprise.  It is an election year after all.  McAuliffe is not eligible to run, but he wants to do all he can for Ralph Northam.  That includes making sure he has all the illegal and dead votes he can get. 

The fact is that McAuliffe and the Democrats have made this state ripe for a GOP take over.  First there was the malicious prosecution of Gov. McDonnell that ended with the federal appeals court throwing out his conviction. 

Next came McAuliffe attempting to copy Obama's Executive Order tactic.  He used this tactic three times, and all three failed judicial challenges.  The first was an Executive Order that made it so that Virginia would not honor or recognize a firearm license from another state.  By the law passed by the state legislature, Virginia has a reciprocal recognition policy.  The state will recognize the firearm license of any state that recognizes Virginia's firearm licenses.  This order was not only challenged by the state legislature, it was also challenged by other states whose citizens were effected by the order.  The court ended ruling the order invalid because it enacted a law without legislative process. 

The Governor took another swipe at the Second Amendment.  This time by making the State Capital Building a Gun Free Zone, and that included the police.  Yet a few blocks away, there is the Governor's Mansion complete with the Governor's personal armed security force.  This move pissed off members of both parties.  This was undone by a brilliant move on the part of the State Senate President pro tempore.  He drafted a bill that would extend the gun free zone to all state Government buildings including the Governor's mansion.  That would require the Governor's security force to be disarmed.  The Senate pro-tem informed the Governor that unless recalls that EO, this bill would be read on the Senate floor the next morning.  He also informed him that not only did he have enough votes to pass the bill, he had enough to override a veto.  Needless to say, the EO was recalled that day.

The third attempt was when the Governor attempted to restore the voting rights of all convicted felons.  The court ruled that it was in essence a blanket pardon policy, and that was a violation of the states Constitution.  The Constitution requires the Governor to issue pardons on a case by case basis, and only when actually requested by the felon.  In Virginia, that requires the felon to write an essay to explain why their right should be restored.  Fortunately, there were not that many felons willing to put pan to paper.  Therefore the Governor's great humanitarian effort went for naught.

One final straw is when the Governor announced that he was going to waste taxpayer money to join the challenge to the Travel Ban.  After that, there have been calls for his resignation from both sides of the aisle.

I am sure that when Ed Gillespie wins in November he will remember to think McAuliffe for making his victory possible.

Sounds like you have a Governor at war with the people of your state.  I hope you can get him brought up on charges after he's out of office, Marine.

Hillary's lap dog. I'm in VA too and he won because of the Urban vote. WE use to be GOP.

That was choice that the Legislature were going to outlaw guns in the Governor's Mansion.  That got his attention.  That is the typical Democrat.  The people can't have guns but the Dems can.

"A Governor at war with the people of his state."  Read: Typical Democrat.  Charges brought after he is out of office is the type of sleazy tricks that the DNC uses.  The GOP does not need to stoop to their level.  Luckily the state Constitution only allows a Governor to serve one four year term.  The Obama Administration brought the charges against McDonnell to discredit all GOP candidates.  They had to do that because he had a very good favorability rating.  They could not attack him, or the party, on the job he did.  So, they had to resort to a malicious prosecution.  But the GOP has plenty of ammo to attack the DNC.  That is why only two Democrats have declared for the election, and a host of Republicans.  Everyone knows the DNC is vulnerable this go around.  We don't need any sleazy tricks.  We can run a high and dry campaign.

I'm going to disagree here, Marine.  Just winning elections isn't going to be good enough.  We will lose in the end, unless we don't start holding them accountable.  If he's done something wrong, find it, and prosecute.  Nothing dirty about that, but when we prosecute it has to be to the fullest extent of the law and carry the maximum penalty.

If I may, an addendum to your last sentence;

", but when we prosecute it has to be to the fullest extent of the law and carry the maximum penalty."

And cases as such need to be brought forward and tried with consistency.

The thing is that being stupid is not prosecutable.  As far as I know, McAuliffe has not done anything illegal.  I do not advocate bring malicious or fake charges to make a point.
