Voter Fraud in SD - Chris Cassidy is lying
Chris Cassidy, the spokeman for the SD Campaign for UNHealthy Families, "disappeared" for a few days after voter fraud allegations against him and others at UNHealthy Familes (taped and video'd) surfaced a few days ago. But he turned up in Rapid City last night on a KOTA news report. Lying through his teeth, Cassidy says;
Absolutely not, we're following the letter of the law," Cassidy said.
Cassidy says throughout the campaign, Campaign for Healthy Families staff have only registered 15 voters and denies any involvement with the man in the video.
He owes South Dakotans an explanation of why my earlier link to his biography at the website of his California employer now takes you to a blank page. He is also not listed any longer on the "team" page of that website as he was when I linked to the page October 27, just three days ago. Thank God for screen shots - I have them all - including one that says under his name… "Associate - Corcoran & Associates Public Affairs - April 2008 to Present".
The sudden removal of these pages on his employers website is an obvious cover up the fact that he is only here for the election. Too late. Here's one of the screen shots that appeared three days ago but is mysteriously gone today. I blocked out his email and phone number because I'm nice.
Two days ago Cassidy told the Argus Leader the following;
Cassidy said Monday that he followed state law in registering to vote in South Dakota this year.
"I'm not registered anywhere else," Cassidy said. "I live here, and I'm registered to vote here."
Do you suppose Cassidy's wife is going to move here after the election to join him since he suddenly "lives here"? His bio above says she's a teacher in Oakland, CA. Seventeen minutes of audio that has been given to the South Dakota Attorney General repeatedly testifies that Chris Cassidy, like many who are here to work for the Campaign for UNHealthy Families, are voting here and "going home after the election." That's illegal. Violations are punishable by up to two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
If you wonder why I'm pressing the issue here it's because we have out-of-state doctors coming in to do abortions. And we have millions in out-of-state money being spent here to ensure abortion remains available for back up birth control. And now we have out-of-state people coming in here to vote. South Dakota needs to makes some noise on this right now.
On the front page of the Rapid City Journal today is this story - Influx of democratic voter registrations could benefit opponents of abortion ban. You think? Vote Yes For Life notes it's all "suspicious." I'll say.
