Alabama election fraud: Man admits Democrat voters came from other states

In the December 12 special Senate election in Alabama, we are told that pro-abort Democrat candidate Doug Jones narrowly won with 49.92% of the votes vs. Republican Roy Moore’s 48.38% — a razor-thin margin of only 1.54%.

There are allegations of vote fraud and irregularities, including:

  • A “timely” ruling on election day by the Alabama Supreme Court allowing the destruction of digital voting records.
  • A “timely” drive to register thousands of convicted felons to vote.
  • Allegations that busloads of Democratic voters were brought in to voting stations.
  • Online calls for “African Americans” from other states to vote in Alabama, which, of course, is against the law.

We now have direct evidence that people from out of state did indeed vote in the Alabama special election.

At the Doug Jones victory party, a female Fox11 reporter asks a bespectacled young man what he’s excited about the Jones victory. Holding a “Doug Jones for Senate” campaign sign, the clearly jubilant man leaned into the TV camera and says:

We came in from different parts of the country [inaudible] and all of us pitched in to vote and came in together and we got our boy elected! Doug Jones!”

Here’s the video, followed by a GIF I had made of what the man said, in the event YouTube scrubs the video.

Since Alabama requires a photo ID to vote, this means that out-of-state people like this man could only have voted with the complicity of those manning the voting stations.

Voter fraud and irregularities in Alabama special senate election

CBS News reports that with all counties reporting, the Alabama Secretary of State gave the final vote count in yesterday’s special election in Alabama to replace former U.S. senator Jeff Sessions (who left the Senate to be U.S. Attorney General):

49.92% Doug Jones (D); 48.38% Roy Moore (R)

Pro-abort Jones is the first Democrat to be elected to the U.S. Senate in Alabama in 25 years.

Reportedly, absentee ballots from military service members have still not been counted.

Moore refuses to concede and is calling for all the votes to be recounted. The situation is made more urgent because of a ruling by the Alabama Supreme Court yesterday, shooting down a lower court requiring counties to preserve their digital voting records. In other words, Alabama counties can destroy voting records with the blessing of the state supreme court. The Moore legal team will need to jump on this development fast to protect those records.

Moore has compelling reasons to demand a recount:

(1) The difference between the votes for Jones vs. Moore is razor-thin — only 1.54%.

(2) Democratic voter fraud and other irregularities.

There are allegations that busloads of Democratic voters were brought in to voting stations, as well as calls for “African-Americans” in neighboring states to vote in Alabama.

On November 15, 2017, someone who calls himself “Warren4Prez” posted on Reddit a call for “African-Americans in Mississippi” to go to Alabama on December 12 to vote against Roy Moore. Below is a screenshot of the post (click image to enlarge):

Warren4Prez also had other posts on Reddit calling on “African Americans” in Georgia and Tennessee to vote in Alabama. Below is a screenshot taken by Big League Politics (click image to enlarge):

No surprise: Blacks voted overwhelmingly (94.5%) for Doug Jones, as seen in this tweet by BlackLivesMatter leader Deray McKesson:

Democratic activists also engaged in other shenanigans. Soros-funded organizations had registered thousands of convicted felons to vote in yesterday’s special election.

To begin, candidate Doug Jones spearheaded a project by a Soros-financed legal activist group demanding full voting rights be given to felons released from prison, including those convicted of murder, rape and other violent crimes.

Indeed, in recent weeks, assisted by Soros-financed groups, Pastor Kenneth Glasgow — a half-brother of Rev. Al Sharpton, and an “ex-con and recovering crackhead turned street preacher” — led a statewide effort that successfully registered thousands of felons across Alabama. Glasgow told AL.com that in the last month alone “we registered at least five- to ten-thousand people all over the state”. Speaking on his radio program, Glasgow said that “swarming the polls” with newly registered convicts could swing the vote, pointing as a template to the Virginia governor’s race, where in April 2017 Gov. Terry McAuliffe used his executive power to restore the voting rights of over 200,000 felons.

According to Breitbart, the Campaign Legal Center, ACLU of Alabama, and MoveOn.org all worked to register convicted felons. All three organizations receive financing from such Soros-funded groups as the Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, and the Brennan Center for Justice.

30-40 members of Congress may be accused of sexual misconduct

The resignation of Sen. Al Franken (D-Minnesota), accused by women of sexual misconduct, is just the beginning of the draining of the Congressional swamp.

See also “Sadistic pedophiles and Sen. Al Franken’s ‘joke’ about anal rape of babies”.

Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, said this yesterday:

“I’ve heard reports that as many as 30 or 40 members of the House and Senate may face allegations of sexual harassment.

From a secret slush fund of Congress, taxpayers had paid over $17 million (between 1997 and 2017) in “awards” to settle complaints and disputes involving “legislative branch entities,” including Congress.

Now we are told that taxpayers had paid $200,000 to an accuser of Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Florida), and $84,000 for Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Texas), for their sexual misconduct.

Demand that Hastings and Farenthold repay what we taxpayers had paid for their sexual misdeeds.

Drain the Congress Swamp!!!

DC pharmacy delivers Alzheimer’s drugs to Congress

Citing an article in STAT (which requires a submission to read), Christina Prignano reports for the Boston Globe, Oct. 11, 2017, that Grubb’s Pharmacy in Washington, DC, said it has a cozy arrangement with members of Congress whereby it delivers drugs to their attending physicians so that the legislators can avoid making the trip themselves.

The drugs include prescriptions to treat the incurable Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of senile dementia.

Grubb’s Pharmacy is located at 326 E Capitol St. NE, Washington, DC 20003, just a couple of blocks from Congress and the Supreme Court.

In an interview with STAT, Mike Kim, the owner of Grubb’s Pharmacy, said:

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country. It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Under Congress’ health care plan, lawmakers pay just $600 a year for access to their attending physician, and by extension, the deliveries made by Kim’s pharmacy.

There are three main phases of Alzheimer’s — mild, moderate, and severe. Each stage has its own set of symptoms (WebMD):

(1) Mild Alzheimer’s: This first stage usually lasts from 2 to 4 years. The symptoms include:

  • Having less energy and drive to do things
  • Less interest in work and social activities and spending more time just sitting, watching TV, or sleeping
  • Loss of recent memories, like forgetting conversations and events that just happened.
  • Language problems, like trouble putting their thoughts into words or understanding others.
  • Mild coordination problems, such as trouble writing or using familiar objects.
  • A hard time with everyday tasks, such as following a recipe or balancing a checkbook.
  • Mood swings that involve depression or a lack of interest.
  • Trouble with driving, like getting lost on familiar routes.

(2) Moderate Alzheimer’s: This stage can last from 2 to 10 years. The symptoms include:

  • Memory loss gets worse and starts to cause problems in daily life:
    • Forget details about their life, like when they got married or where they went to high school.
    • May not recognize or remember family members and friends.
    • May forget where they leave things and can’t retrace the steps to find them.
  • Worsening language problems, including:
    • Rambling speech.
    • Trouble coming up with the right words and using the wrong ones.
  • A hard time planning or solving problems.
  • Confusion about time or place: may get lost in places they’ve been before; once there, may not know how or why they got to that place.
  • Not dressing appropriately for the weather. (See “Former John Conyers’ aide says most of them have seen him in his underwear and it’s ‘no big deal’“)
  • Getting angry or upset easily, sometimes lashing out at family or caregivers. (See “John McCain goes postal on Syrian Christians“)
  • Trouble sleeping.
  • Wandering.
  • Delusions, such as thinking a caregiver is trying to hurt them.

(3) Severe Alzheimer’s: This last stage typically lasts 1 to 3 years. People in this phase may have some or all of these symptoms:

  • Major confusion about what’s in the past and what’s happening now.
  • Can’t express themselves, remember, or process information.
  • Problems with swallowing and control of their bladder and bowels.
  • Weight loss, seizures, skin infections, and other illnesses.
  • Extreme mood swings.
  • Seeing, hearing, or feeling things that aren’t really there, called hallucinations.
  • Can’t move easily on their own.

Below is a video of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on June 25, 2017, which shows her looking gaunt and sunken-cheeked, struggling to communicate, gesticulating wildly and futilely with her hands, repeatedly stopping in mid-sentence and staring at the audience in brain freezes.

Taxpayers paid $17+M in Congress’ hush-money settlements

The Congressional Accountability Act (CAA) of 1995 requires Congress and legislative branch entities to follow many of the same employment and workplace laws applied to private business and the rest of the Federal Government.

In all, 13 civil rights, labor, and workplace safety laws are applied by the CAA:

  1. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970
  2. Federal Labor Relations Act
  3. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
  4. Americans with Disabilities Act
  5. Rehabilitation Act of 1973
  6. Family and Medical Leave Act
  7. Fair Labor Standards Act
  8. Age Discrimination in Employment Act
  9. Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act
  10. Employee Polygraph Protection Act
  11. Veterans’ employment and reemployment rights under Chapter 43 of Title 38 of the U.S. Code.
  12. Veterans Employment Opportunities Act
  13. Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act

CAA’s purpose is to protect over 30,000 employees of the legislative branch, including the following:

  • House of Representatives and the Senate (both Washington, D.C. and state district office staff)
  • Office of the Architect of the Capitol
  • U.S. Capitol Police
  • Office of Congressional Accessibility Services
  • Congressional Budget Office
  • Office of the Attending Physician
  • Government Accountability Office
  • Library of Congress
  • Office of Compliance

The last legislative branch entity , the Office of Compliance (OOC), was created by CAA as an independent office to administer and enforce the Act, and to manage complaints and disputes involving “legislative branch entities” through an early resolution procedure of counseling, mediation, hearings, deliberations, and monetary “awards or settlements” — all of which are confidential.

Sexual harassment, abuse or rape are among the complaints and disputes involving legislative branch entities.

The money for the “awards and settlements” is drawn from a special account in the U.S. Treasury, created by Section 415 of the Congressional Accountability Act, under which the OOC is authorized to appropriate “such sums as may be necessary to pay such awards and settlements.” OOC’s executive director approves all such awards and settlements.

We do not know how much money is that “special account”. According to Section 1415 of CAA:

There are appropriated for such account such sums as may be necessary to pay such awards and settlements.

But we do know how much the OOC, that is taxpayers, paid in “awards and settlements” from 1997 to 2017 — a whopping $17.24 million.

That was revealed in a November 16, 2017 memorandum by Susan Tsui Grundmann, Executive Director of the Office of Compliance.

In the memo, Grundmann states that although the CAA does not require the OOC to release award and settlement figures:

“However, based on the volume of recent inquiries regarding payment of awards and settlements reached under the CAA, I am releasing these figures beginning with Fiscal Year 1997, up to and including FY 2017.”

By “volume of recent inquiries regarding payment of awards and settlements,” Grundmann was alluding to inquiries provoked by recent news concerning Congressmen Al Franken’s and John Conyers’ sexual misconduct.

Below is a table of settlements and awards paid by the Office of Compliance from 1997 to 2017 (click to enlarge). Note that I added the following to the table:

  • The words “HR – Senate” for the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
  • The letters “R” (Republican) and “D” (Democrat) to indicate the majority party in control of the House or Senate that year.
  • The red circles.
  • The last line in the table: “Total 1997-2017 / 264 / $17,240,854”

As you can see from the table:

  • 2007 was the worst year, with the highest number of settlements (25) and the largest amount in total settlements and awards ($4,053,274), averaging $162,130 per settlement.
  • 2002 is notable for the largest amount paid to each complainant — an average of $397,407 to each of the ten complainants.

Grundmann would not divulge which legislative entities were involved, or which member of Congress was accused of wrongdoing, or what the payoff was for. She writes:

AA large portion of cases originate from employing offices in the legislative branch other than the House of Representatives or the Senate, and involve various statutory provisions incorporated by the CAA, such as the overtime provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. The statistics on payments are not further broken down into specific claims because settlements may involve cases that allege violations of more than one of the 13 statutes incorporated by the CAA.”

Indeed, the Office of Compliance is under no obligation to inform the American people. This is what is stated on OOC’s “Contact Us” webpage:

The Office of Compliance is part of the legislative branch and is therefore not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

The Office of Compliance is a part of Congress, the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government, with a 5-member, non-partisan Board of Directors who, in turn, appoint OOC’s executive staff, including its executive director. Susan Tsui Grundmann became Executive Director of the Office of Compliance in January 2017. Here’s her contact information:

John Adams Building
110 2nd Street SE, Room LA 200
Washington, DC 20540-1999
Phone: 202-724-9250
Fax: 202-426-1913

You should be outraged by this.

We, the taxpayers, paid $17.24 million (1997-2017) in hush money for Congress’ misdeeds. We have the right to be told the names of the miscreants, what they did, how much each has cost taxpayers, and how much is in that secret slush fund.

Update:

Reacting to taxpayers’ outrage about the hush-money slush-fund, three bills have been introduced in Congress to address this issue:

  1. A bill requiring lawmakers to pay back the funds, and have the amounts posted on a government website.
  2. A bill to stop the use of tax payer money and have the lawmakers face possible expulsion.
  3. A bill requiring lawmakers in past cases pay back the funds with interest, stop future payments, and ban non-disclosure agreements.

Former John Conyers’ aide says most of them have seen him in his underwear and it’s “no big deal”

john conyers

Um, ok. How many times have you walked in on your boss in his underwear? Not cool by any means.

From Daily Mail: A male former aide to Rep. John Conyers has pooh-poohed claims by a female lawyer that the Democrat invited her to a meeting while he was in his underwear.

Melanie Sloan, who served as minority counsel for House Judiciary Committee, said last week that she was called up to Conyers’ office during her time there only to find him in his underwear.

But on Wednesday Bob Weiner, who was Conyers’ communications director from 1994-2000, said the representative’s underwear was a common sight at the time. ‘Most of us have walked in on him accidentally without knocking and have seen him in his underwear,’ he told CNN. ‘Big deal.’

Sloan told the Washington Post that she had been called to brief Conyers on a matter when she saw him in the uncomfortable situation. ‘I was pretty taken aback to see my boss half-dressed,’ she said, adding: ‘I turned on my heel and I left.’

But on Tuesday Weiner said that Conyers – like other representatives in the Rayburn House Office Building – had a wardrobe in his office, and so it was expected that staff would see his underwear from time to time.

‘Something else that people need to know: his closet is in his office right here. He changes clothes in his office,’ he said. ‘So to say that somebody came to a meeting and that’s how it was, that’s an untrue statement.  That is the kind of thing that needs to be explored before there’s any acceptance to that kind of an allegation.’

Sloan does not accuse Conyers of sexually harassing her, but did say that he was verbally abusive to her during her employment. ‘There was an occasion where he called me out of a meeting with a bunch of advocates and was screaming at me in the halls, including [about] me not wearing stockings on a 95-degree Washington summer day … while he wasn’t wearing socks,’ she told ABC.

She said of Conyers: ‘I don’t think he was having male staffers babysit his kids and I don’t think male staffers were berated in the same way that I was. Certainly, Congressman Conyers was picking on me and this was well known throughout the committee staff. It was obvious.’

But Weiner also denied that she was being picked on, or that Conyers was motivated by misogyny. ‘That’s not sexist. That’s just being aggressive as the member of Congress or the Cabinet member or the VIP that you are,’ he said. ‘It has nothing to do with being anti-women. I got it too.’

‘Representative Conyers has never done anything inappropriate to Melanie Sloan,’ his lawyer, Arnold Reed, told the paper.

However, Conyers – who stepped down from the House Judiciary Committee on Sunday – has other issues to contend with.

The House Ethics Committee is investigating him following a report that claimed he used $27,000 of office funds to pay off a staffer who accused him of sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

And another woman, now 77, claims that Conyers stripped down to his underwear in front of her in a hotel room while they were on a work trip.

Members of both the Republicans and the Democrats are now calling for Conyers to step down – and Weiner says the mood in his office is grim. ‘His staff is very depressed and think that people are trying to make the die cast against him, and everybody’s trying to work out statements of what to say that’s the right thing to say and it’s very complicated,’ he said.

‘People are hoping that the die hasn’t been cast too far too soon already… the staff is hoping very much that, at a minimum, that he gets the chance to complete his term as a member of Congress,’ he said. ‘That’s the objective right now of the staff.’

Conyers the longest serving member of the House, denied doing anything wrong after BuzzFeed News reported a woman was paid $27,000 from Conyers’ taxpayer-funded congressional office allowance.

The unidentified woman alleges that Conyers repeatedly asked her for sex.  In one particularly serious charge, she claims that Conyers asked her to work out of his hotel room, when the Michigan congressman began talking about his sexual desires, according to the report. She alleged that Conyers then told her to ‘touch it’ – meaning his penis – or find him a woman who would meet his sexual demands.

Top house democrat took $50,000 from taxpayers to keep a former staffer quiet

raul grijalva

Why are tax-payer dollars being used to silence the abusive activities of politicians? Unreal.

From Daily Caller: The top Democrat on the House Committee on Natural Resources used taxpayer dollars to pay off a former staffer who threatened to sue, claiming the lawmaker was often drunk and created a hostile workplace.

Arizona Rep. Raul Grijalva’s secret deal with a former female staffer was revealed by The Washington Times on Monday. The payout was negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, the body’s attorney, and cost taxpayers $48,395.

The settlement, however, may have violated House rules, The Times reported. It’s against House rules for a lawmaker to retain “an employee who does not perform duties for the offices of the employing authority commensurate with the compensation such employee receives.”

Grijalva’s payout also should have been handed over in a lump sum, not paid out in monthly installments, The Times reported. Taxpayers paid Grijalva’s disgruntled staffer five month’s severance. The female staffer left her job after just three months, and didn’t pursue the matter after leaving Grijalva’s employment.

“On the advice of House Employment Counsel, I provided a severance package to a former employee who resigned,” Grijalva told The Times in a statement.

“The severance did not involve the Office of Compliance and at no time was any allegation of sexual harassment made, and no sexual harassment occurred,” Grijalva said.

“Under the terms of the agreement, had there been an allegation of sexual harassment, the employee would have been free to report it,” he said. “Regrettably, for me to provide any further details on this matter would violate the agreement.”

News of Grijalva’s payout comes amid debate over the $17.2 million in taxpayer funds used to settle 264 complaints of sexual harassment and other issues in Congress. The settlements are kept secret.
