Oh My: Study Reveals Significant Number of Non-Citizens Vote in US ElectionsTownhall ^ | Oct 27, 2014 | Guy BensonPosted on 10/28/2014, 12:14:35 PM by george76
Electoral cheating is not the “myth” the Left pretends it is…More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote….Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample, we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections.
Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken D-Minn. won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin.
It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.That’s…a really big deal.
Democrats needed every last Senate seat they won in 2008 in order to overcome a GOP filibuster on Obamacare. Without Franken’s seat or Mark Begich‘s ill-gotten seat, the bill would never have passed — as written, or at all.
Previous studies presented serious evidence that Franken’s margin in Minnesota was furnished by felons illegally voting; this new data suggests that ineligible non-citizens could have put him over the top.
Pick your poison. Both bodies of evidence, by the way, showed that non-citizens and convicted felons overwhelmingly support Democrats.Excerpt Read more at townhall.com …

Jesse Ventura, former wrestler, former action star, and former governor of Minnesota, is suing the widow of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle for defamation surrounding an account of a bar fight in Kyle’s book.
Kyle recounts how he and Ventura got into it when Ventura denigrated Navy SEALs who had fallen in action. Ventura claims the incident never happened and has been demanding satisfaction for some months now. Just because Kyle is dead does not mean Ventura is no longer in need of financial compensation. The book is still selling. It is to be made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. Kyle’s grieving widow must now pay.

Ventura eagerly volunteered the possibility while at Minnesota’s Capitol — and pushed back against skepticism that he would re-enter the political fray after being out of office since 2003.
It’s hardly the first time the publicity savvy Ventura has broached the idea he would run for the White House or Senate, only to pass on a campaign.
He said the next race is “an opportune time” for an independent like him to run because there will be no incumbent.
