If willful blindness counts as a disability, our Secretary of Soros State certainly qualifies and ought to be retired. In testimony to the Legislature, he seems to be channeling cartoon kid Bart Simpson, saying about voter fraud, in effect, "It never happened, I didn't do it, nobody saw me, you can 't prove a thing." He is either vastly underqualified for his job, or perhaps he is overqualified. After all, with his expertise in confabulation and his comedic skill he could be a US Senator, were the job not already taken (by way of voter fraud).
It would be bad enough if he was simply lying or grossly incompetent, both of which could still be true, but he is actually denying the reality of voter fraud! Most of us paying attention know that Minnesota now leads the country in convictions for voter fraud. Those of us paying a LOT of attention know that a) someone in his own office committed voter
impersonation, b) he has failed to manage the voter rolls as required by law, thus enabling fraud, c) that he has actively opposed anti-fraud measures including voter ID, contrary to his sworn duties, d) that his claims about disenfranchisement, published on his official website contrary to law, are complete fabrications, e) that the number of voter fraud cases is KNOWN to be at least ten times higher than the convictions, and f) the number of cases of ineligible voters voting, voter impersonation, multiple voting, fictional people voting, dead people voting, etc. are no doubt much higher than that. But none of these things can be even detected until we have a Voter ID law in place! Moreover, Voter ID would actually enable us to prevent these things rather than detecting them after the votes already counted! Why the strident opposition to such sensible practice if not for a partisan advantage in cheating at the ballot box?
We may have to endure two more years of Mr. Ritchie's incompetence, deceit and malfeasance, but we shouldn't have to listen to anything he has to say. We can start by working for and passing the Voter ID amendment in November, whatever it's called.
