Over 100,000 Arizonans sent a clear message to the White House this week with a petition regarding the obvious and massive voter fraud committed by the Wall Street Democratic Establishment allowing Hillary Clinton to defeat Bernie Sanders.
Reader Jerry Peacemaker sent me a tip, which I’ve doubled checked. Jerry accurately wrote, “The late Joe Purcell (1923-1987) was Arkansas’s Lieutenant Governor from 1975-81, during the time Bill Clinton was the state’s governor. Joe Purcell was married to Helen (Hale) Purcell. Helen Purcell as Recorder of Maricopa County in Arizona was responsible for reducing the number of polling places in the state’s most highly-populated county from over 200 to 60, resulting in hours-long waiting in lines for Arizonans wishing to exercise their democratic rights.
Purcell, however, may not be the same person as the former wife of Joe Purcell. So there may not be a Clinton connection. However, voter suppression did take place in
Arizona March 22.
Lines were so long people literally spent an entire work day waiting to vote. In 2012, Maricopa County, which is the most populous county in Arizona, had over 200 polling locations open on primary day. In 2016, that number was reduced to just 60. This amounted to over 20,000 voters for every polling location, meaning voters had to stand in line for hours to cast their ballots.
As it turns out, elections in Arizona are governed by the county recorder, who determines how many polling places are actually open on Election Day. The recorder in Pima County, which houses Tucson, had twice as many polling locations open than in Maricopa County. And Pima County is roughly one-third the size of Maricopa County.
In Maricopa County, Purcell was responsible for the reduction in polling places in 2016, justifying it by saying turnout was traditionally low, so the solution was to reduce the number of places where citizens could cast their vote. She also blamed voters for the problem, because they showed up.
Purcell is incompetent or corrupt. In 2012 there were 200 polling places for an estimated 300,000 voters. In 2016, Purcell made certain there were 60 polling places for an expected turnout of 800,000 voters, according to news reporter Joe Dana.
According to one source, “As election day began, it was learned that 1.3 million voters, most of who reportedly would have voted for Sanders, were disenfranchised from voting in the Democratic primary. Additionally, significant numbers of registered Democratic voters who were told they were not on the Democratic voting lists included long-time Democrats who had voted in the Democratic primaries before without any problem. Others who properly switched their party were told they were also not on the list. At best, these Democratic voters were told, they could vote a provisional ballot which would not be counted today.”
Polling places in Latino neighborhoods were even scarcer than in Maricopa County. Many voters in Maricopa were given provisional ballots, which were not counted as votes. And the list of corruption goes on and on. Helen Purcell should be fired immediately, and her actions investigated. Criminal charges should be brought against her if needed. With 1 percent of the vote counted, the national corporate propaganda machine did their part; they announced Clinton the winner, perhaps discouraging thousands of people from voting.
