On April 26, 2013, two South Bend, IN Obama Operatives were convicted of forging nine pages of signatures that Senator Obama needed to appear on the state’s 2008 Democrat Primary Ballot in his contest against Hillary Clinton!
This conviction is important because it throws Obama’s ascendency to become his party’s 2008 nominee into the realm of doubt and suspicion, at least of course, in Indiana.
Fox News reported:
“St. Joseph County Democratic party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. was found guilty of felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud and forgery, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe was found guilty of felony forgery counts and falsely making a petition.”
This came after the men were “Accused of faking petitions that enabled Obama, then an Illinois Senator, to get on the presidential primary ballot for his first run for the White House. Morgan was accused of being the mastermind behind the plot.”
Even though it appears that both Clinton and Obama had between 100 and 200 forged signatures on each of their ballot petitions, Clinton’s 704 votes still gave her more than enough votes to meet the 500 vote threshold. Obama’s however, did not.
Here’s the Fox News Breakdown:
“Prosecutors say that in President Obama’s case, nine of the petition pages were apparently forged. Each petition contains up to 10 names, making a possible total of 90 names, which, if faked, could have brought the Obama total below the legal limit required to qualify. Prosecutors say 13 Clinton petitions were apparently forged, meaning up to 130 possibly fake signatures. Even if 130 signatures had been challenged, it would have still left Mrs. Clinton with enough signatures to meet the 500 person threshold.”
The real question is; how many Obama operatives in other states did exactly what these two did and just never got caught?
