Election Fraud Watch: Did Obama Submit Phony Ballot Petitions in 2008?

October 14, 2011 @

A former Democratic governor of Indiana says a petition to place Barack Obama on the state ballot during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary is not his, raising the question of voter fraud. Former Governor Joe Kernan, a Democrat, replied, “No, not at all,” when the South Bend (Indiana) Tribune asked if the signature, which helped qualify Obama for the ballot, belonged to him.

The newspaper reports it has spoken to at least 40 other people in St. Joseph County, Indiana, whose names erroneously appear on petitions for either Obama or his primary opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Indiana requires those running for statewide office to collect 4,500 signatures from registered voters, 500 from each congressional district, before their names may appear on the ballot for voters’ consideration.

Local newspapers have reported the names appear to be copied from signatures submitted for another statewide candidate that year.

Eric Holcomb, the Republican Party chairman for the state of Indiana, has demanded a federal investigation, asking, “How deep does this problem go?” Indiana Democratic Party Chairman Dan Parker said he wholeheartedly concurs. “Even an isolated instance of misconduct, by one individual among the hundreds of volunteers working to collect signatures for the candidates, should be thoroughly investigated, and we support such an inquiry,” he insisted.
