Yes, it was alive and well in Philadelphia on Election Day. Mayor
Squidward Michael Nutter, however, said that talk of voter fraud in Philadelphia is “crap.”
It’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote.
Still, was there not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0?
The unanimous support for Obama in these Philadelphia neighborhoods – clustered in almost exclusively black sections of West and North Philadelphia – fertilizes fears of fraud, despite little hard evidence.
“Little evidence” according to Philadelphia’s newspapers, which are to the far left of Keith Olbermann. To people with common sense, this statistic is eye-raising . . .
Larry Sabato thinks something is rotten in Denmark, too:
Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia who has studied African American precincts, said he had occasionally seen 100 percent of the vote go for the Democratic candidate. Chicago and Atlanta each had precincts that registered no votes for Republican Sen. John McCain in 2008.
“I’d be surprised if there weren’t a handful of precincts that didn’t cast a vote for Romney,” he said. But the number of zero precincts in Philadelphia deserves examination, Sabato added. “Not a single vote for Romney or even an error? That’s worth looking into,” he said.
I’m not going to really get into this because I don’t have the stomach for politics anymore. That being said, there are only two conclusions which can be reached from this story. Either voter fraud was rampant in Philly on Election Day (again), or the predominantly black voters of West and North Philly are flat-out racists.
There, I said it.
