Novel vote fraud ploy?

Scammers are constantly trying to come up with some new scheme that will allow them a free run of six months or so until they're discovered and the knowledge of the scheme reaches most of the public.

Sometimes they succeed.

This one is a masterpiece.

Seems voters in half a dozen states have received an official-looking card from something called the Voter Participation Center, saying "Voter registration documents enclosed." The card is typically already filled out with the recipient's name, address, date of birth--and in some cases even their social security number. It asks for more information, and instructs the recipient to "Return this card to the [name of state] State Board of Elections in the enclosed, postage-paid envelope."

The envelope is addressed to the board of elections, at the correct street address.

The mischief is at the very end of the address, in the zip code. It's not the code of the Board of Elections. Instead, the zip code goes to a post office box in a UPS facility.

And the U.S. Post Office confirms that the zip code will override the street address. (A really careful researcher notes that if a bar code is printed below the zip, the bar code will override the zip code.)

The boxes--a different one for each state, of course--are rented by the Voter Participation Center. And the Business Reply Mail permit printed on the cards was issued to the same outfit. So this isn't an inadvertent misprint on one set of cards, but part of a methodical plan.

At this point no one outside of VPC knows what that plan is, but at the very least, representing to voters that their completed cards are being mailed to the State Election Board when in fact they're secretly going to the VPC would seem to be misleading if not fraudulent.

What's known at this point is that the "Voter Participation Center"--headquartered in Virginia--is bankrolled by wealthy [ blank left to reader's imagination ] and run by well-known [ ]s.

It's also interesting that the states blanketed by the cards are the so-called battleground states that are expected to decide the election.

One more interesting fact: the cards have been mailed to children, deceased persons and family pets. This wide assortment suggests a total lack of discrimination as to who got cards. So it wouldn't be surprising if a significant number of persons not eligible to vote ended up returning the postage-paid cards.

Let's see...who would benefit from that?

Eh, who cares? After all, our betters in the mainstream media constantly tell us there's absolutely no evidence of actual vote fraud. So this can't be an effort to either register ineligible voters, nor to prepare IDs that would allow people to vote in place of the persons who send in the cards.

Y'know what agency would be perfect to investigate this kind of potential vote-fraud scam? Why, the U.S. Department of...wait for it...Justice. Seems like this would be right up their alley. But somehow I don't think they'll be interested in pursuing the matter--all their investigators and attorneys are devoted to suing states that are trying to scrub their voter registration rolls of dead folks and illegal aliens !

Oh, and as to the identity of the parties who fund and run the VPC--the two blanks left above? We know, but instead of telling you, let's play a game: If you don't hear another word about this, you'll know the perps were Democrats.

If it turns out they're Republicans it'll be on the front pages of the major papers for the next three months.
