Former Ethics Commission Chair Backs Thatcher for SOS

Although I am a registered Libertarian, I am crossing party lines and will vote for Kim Thatcher enthusiastically.

  1. Barely 50% voter turnout. Nice. That’s what’s so wonderful about reading complaints about elected officials. 50% of you have no business complaining about anything political. So, the next time you want to cry and bit#$ about politics, try to maybe think about wondering if you considered voting in the last elections. This is another reason politics is so “messed” up- expletive deleted. 50% of the people are deciding who gets elected, and the way I see it, a lot of those 50% are twits.

  2. Hmm . . . only 50% of the people voted and almost 2 times as many Democrats voting! Makes you wonder who the real twits are!

  3. When you vote by mail turnout goes up substantially. This is why Vote by mail is so important and why it’s catching on and will eventually be the way! We Need More Turnout! More Voting, More people! Thanks for pointing that out for us Kevin, you are a good advocate for vote by mail!

  4. Dumwthagun, I’m impressed, clearly your 3 digit IQ begins with a zero. The republicans will take back the House of Representatives, Donald Trump is going to be reelected, and all the Dumbnocrats are going to cry and whine, just like they’ve done for the last 3 years. There are no numbers for how many people of each party voted, only total numbers of voters, many people don’t bother voting for unchallenged positions, and that skews the numbers. I can see that vote by mail increases the numbers…right. Barely 50%, and a lot of races aren’t even party based. You are a fat idiot, and if you had any fortitude, you wouldn’t hide behind some dipstick alias.

  5. Bad news people. I’ll say whatever I please, to whoever I please,
    whenever I please. I am very good at picking out faults and I’m
    an expert at insults. Just trying to keep it clean here Wayne somebody,
    I suppose you’re dumwthagun’s boyfriend.

  6. The voting is over. We know who won. But—now comes the real test. Now that these new winners have got their job, –will they–DO what they said they wanted to do, when they were running? Or will they be largely inactive and “coast” til the next election? Transparency, communication and integrity still matter. Here’s hoping…

  7. Results. It’s what we want, depending on who you voted for…
    Every time an election comes around, and when I watch the news
    as well, I am reminded of a bumper sticker I saw once-
    “Vote For Term Limits, One in Office, One in Prison”
    The founders never expected politics to be a career, it’s too bad.

  8. DemWthaGun just wait all of these extra votes that go to the Democrats are going to be coming from a cemetery. Its kinda funny how people that have passed away years ago can still vote? It should go back to the way it was I want to go to a voting booth but nooo because dead people can’t vote then.

  9. Concerned citizen is obviously not an educated citizen. Lay off the Kool-Aid and maybe watch something other than YouTube conspiracy theory videos if you want people to take you seriously.

  10. Your citations (at least the links that aren’t broken) are about people not coming off voter roles. One article states that maybe a 4 or 5 votes were cast for deceased individuals, but the rest confirm that fraud was unlikely. In short, there is a verification method to make sure that improper votes are not counted.

    If you want some reputable sources about actual voter fraud, please see below:
