Military absentee ballots lost in plane crash

The real meaning of the Obama 2012 campaign slogan

The POS is determined to screw our soldiers who are deployed overseas and must vote via absentee ballots.

Although the majority of members of our military –an estimated two-thirds — will need to vote by absentee ballot for the upcoming November election, an alarmingly small percentage of military voters are requesting absentee ballots.

So Mitt Romney’s campaign did something about that. The campaign sued Wisconsin, asking a federal judge for an injunction to extend the deadline for absentee ballots for military personnel and civilians overseas by five days. The Romney campaign alleges Wisconsin election officials were late in sending out absentee ballots to civilians and military voters stationed overseas.

Now comes news that absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military serving in that hell-hole called Afghanistan “may have been burned in a plane crash.”

The Associated Press reports:

A top official in the Federal Voting Assistance Program this week notified election officials across the nation that a transport plane crashed at Shindad Air Base on Oct. 19.

The crash resulted in the destruction of 4,700 pounds of mail inbound to troops serving in the area.

Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail was limited to one zip code.

But they recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been destroyed in the crash and fire.

Think all this has something to do with the fact that a recent Military Times poll found that members of active and reserve military overwhelmingly favor Romney over Obama 2 to 1?

(By the way, like active duty military, veterans too favor Romney over Obama by 20% nationwide and especially in the critical battleground states.)

  1. This is so astonishing–it nearly takes my breath away. I really wonder, even if additional ballots were sent, I doubt that the turn-around time would be sufficient to allow them to come back and ACTUALLY BE COUNTED! My profound thanks to you for posting this information–I am sending it on to everyone I know.

  2. Thank you Dr. Eowyn, Tina and Wendy for this revealing post. After all of the lies that have been told by the administration, I don’t believe them. What a convenient way to eliminate soldiers from voting! More fraud being undertaken. Please God, help us!!!!

  3. How convenient….

  4. our Military votes should come first, nothing should be tallied until these are in. I don’t care how long it takes. If done properly, should not take long.

  5. I smell a barnyard dump burning! Was the pilot an 0bamabot?

  6. Isn’t it funny that we haven’t heard of this plane crah on the news? Or have I missed something? I smell a big fat rat, and it’s commie. How about reports that busloads of Somalis and others who can’t even speak English were bussed in Ohio to the polls. Are these fake and meant dispirit us, or are democrats the true demons I believe they are?

  7. Accident but, after the last few years, I just don’t trust left/liberals with power.

  8. Actually, I’m wondering how many of those “possibly burned” absentee ballots WILL come back. And how many will have voted for a certain person.

  9. Fellowship of what? Fellowship of bullshit??? It is pathetic how idiotic the religious right actually is. Rather than act in a very unchristianlike manner, may you need to get an education in order to actually be able to say something worthwhile. Sad, sad and more than sad.

    • Sad that our military didn’t receive their ballots in a timely manner to vote.

      Sad, that four Americans were murdered as a result of this admin’s order to stand down. Then they lied about the incident and the SRM covered for them. More than sad.

    • YAWN

      Insults. Obscenities. No substantive argument or counter evidence.

      So sad you’re so IQ challenged. 🙁

    • Bingo!

      “Marg” is NOT American. Marg’s IP is in Windsor, Ontario, the Socialist Republic of Kanada!
