 Voter fraud: Albanese talks utter rubbish!

25.11.21.  Anthony Albanese is either a liar and or stupid as he tries to defend his Labor Party stand to disallow producing ID at polling booths. He contends that because the AEC has not prosecuted a single person, despite that 18,000 people were found to have voted more than once in 2016 was proof that the system is working well—say what? Labor and the bloody Greens don’t want ID because they use fraud for benefit. Furthermore, if the AEC were to prosecute any of the 18,000 that Albanese considers as mere “errors” it would highlight the fact that the system is wide open to fraud. Also, if they could prove multiple voting by any person what would they do with that vote? Is the perpetrator suddenly going to be honest and tell to whom his illegal vote was cast so it could be withdrawn? Get real!

    I recall some clown phoning in to talkback radio in Sydney back in the Gillard years boasting that he’d voted 50 times in the then recent election for the Greens.

    I can’t go into #### Bunnings or Woolies without leaving my I.D. for COVID tracing but I can vote (as many times as I ### well like!) without having to produce any I.D.

    Give me a break.

      Labor democracy: vote early and vote often.

    • DT 25/11/2021, 10:21 am

      I have heard politicians discussing multiple voting, Union Labor has a saying “vote early, vote often”, they are joking of course (sarcasm).

      When we enter a Polling Booth and give our name and address they are marked off the Electoral Roll manually and we are handed voting forms to fill in which should be initialled by the person who marked us off. I am not sure about present day rules but it used to be that without initial the form was invalid, our vote invalid and discarded so the Union Labor trick was to have their own people working as clerks and in Polling Booths where most votes went against Labor many forms would not be initialled.

      I remember when a NSW State Election, seat of Campbelltown was won by a Labor candidate by a very narrow margin and an investigation found that many invalid votes were from a Polling Booth servicing Holsworthy Army Base. ADF personnel tend to be conservative voters in the majority.

      Voting fraud is a serious issue and of course the fraudsters target marginal seats, meaning electorates and polling booths where the sitting member has a very slim majority.

      What could be simpler than requiring voters to produce photo ID, and if they can’t put them on a list and require them to produce proof of ID later?

  • Pensioner Pete 25/11/2021, 5:52 am

    Simple solution, ignore Albo and bring in voter ID via way of use of drivers license or Medicare card or other provable identification. There, fixed the Labor Party vote rorting.

  • Xword 25/11/2021, 6:50 am

    Can’t understand people who think voter fraud is possible. What could possibly go wrong when your name and address is logged on is a couple of dozen polling stations and it’s marked off in one of them by a person with a ruler and indelible pen?

    • Neville 25/11/2021, 10:15 pm

      Ya forgot the “/sarc” there mate!

  • Disgruntled 25/11/2021, 7:09 am

    Anthony Albanese is a real idiot; to carry on as he does he must have no shame, none at all; It’s totally unbearable to watch and listen to him; Always seems to be a different story every day and all the time during the day

    But that seems how the people of Australia want him to be; the rest needs to throw a shoe!

    Voter I D MUST BE INTRODUCED and ASAP
    What happens now is utterly stupid; just give it some thought. UTTERLY STUPID and NOT worth carrying on with!!

  • Popular Front 25/11/2021, 7:16 am

    Memo to Albanese: Barnaby Joyce can get away with looking like a dork in an Akubra hat as he represents a rural electorate and owns a farm. You don’t. You’re an inner city berk with no country credibility past the Wahroonga on-ramp.

    • Graham Richards 25/11/2021, 7:28 am

      I think Albo would look good wearing a baseball cap, back to front of course, it’ll go well with his politics!!!

      • God58 25/11/2021, 7:41 am

        He’d look even better wearing a baseball BAT about 10 times.

      • pattoh 25/11/2021, 7:42 am

        &/or turning up as a visitor to a cook up for the “Troops” at a bush fire.

        I guess that is the difference between him & the bloke that wears the uniform or the Budgie Smugglers & funny headgear.

        However the way it is presented is always through the lens of the MSM & the attitude of their propagandists.

  • Penguinite 25/11/2021, 7:27 am

    Photo ID required everywhere that needs to recognise individuals for security reasons but polling stations are exempt?

    • Not woke 25/11/2021, 9:10 am

      Nailed it .

  • God58 25/11/2021, 7:45 am

    I think optional voting should be introduced or some basic political intelligence test before voting. The Greens vote would evaporate overnight.

    • Sir Peter 25/11/2021, 11:08 am

      Sadly not. Many greens a very intelligent. The problem is that they are FOOLISH and IGNORANT

      • God58 25/11/2021, 1:56 pm

        That’s why I said ‘political’ intelligence to incorporate logical rationale and agree with you.

  • Albert 25/11/2021, 9:05 am

    A message for Albo: When you’re dead you don’t know you’re dead, you just become a problem for others. It is the same when you are stupid.

    • Pensioner Pete 25/11/2021, 9:16 am

      Excellent comment Albert.

    • Disgruntled 25/11/2021, 1:02 pm

      Albert; you are on the money today mate!

  • JK. 25/11/2021, 9:22 am

    Iv’e said it before, there is NO compulsory voting only compulsion is to get marked off the roll, what you write or do not write on the ballot is entirely up to you.

    • BBob 25/11/2021, 10:27 am

      I’ve said it before, there IS compulsory voting in Australia, even if the law is not enforced (similarly to other laws, eg consensual sex between 18yo and 16yo school mates).

      You may get away with not voting as you suggest; indeed almost certainly would, BUT, that does not make it legal – from the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918, as amended:

      245 Compulsory voting

      (1) It SHALL be the duty of every elector to vote at each election.

      Which to this layman means that voting is a requirement – vote is an unambiguous English word that does not include merely getting “marked off the roll”.

      Further, there is legislation as to how you mark the ballot:

      240 Marking of votes in House of Representatives election

      (1) In a House of Representatives election a person SHALL mark his or her vote on the ballot paper by:

      (a) writing the number 1 in the square opposite the name of the candidate for whom the person votes as his or her first preference; and

      (b) writing the numbers 2, 3, 4 (and so on, as the case requires) in the squares opposite the names of all the remaining candidates so as to indicate the order of the person’s preference for
      them.

      Again, to this layman, “shall mark” is an unambiguous English phrase that does not include leaving the ballot blank.

      Not withstanding the above, there is no offence and penalty listed for disobeying 240 or 245 and I have a letter from the AEC agreeing it IS compulsory to vote formally, but because of the secret vote, it cannot be enforced “a fact that is not lost on the Australian public”.

      A friend was taken to court by the AEC for not voting, pleaded not guilty saying he could not comply with Section 240 as he held all candidates in equal contempt. Magistrate asked why he did not vote informal and he replied “The government chooses to play games with the law; I do not”. Found guilty of course, but fined a token amount.

      • wal1957 25/11/2021, 12:17 pm

        BBOb the only way they would know whether you marked your ballot or not would be to view your ballot. Your ballot!
        The only way they could do this is if they had violated your right to a secret casting of your vote.
        Meaning they would have to break the law to enforce the law.

        I have seen people get their ballot from the elecoral officer and dump it straight in the box. Nothing is ever said or done.

    Do you remember when the politicians in Canberra were running around in panic about Section 44 citizenship? Albo had an Italian father and his mother used his father’s name but did not marry him. So the Birth Certificate does not include father, and that enabled Albo to get around his Italian birthright to citizenship.

    But the Turnbull Government required all MPs to fill in a new application form, same form they used to become candidates for election, and Albo apparently repeated the father unknown claim. But that was not true, he had known about his father from when he was in his mid teenage years and even went on ABC 7.30 Report to discuss it and other personal details covered in a book about his life.

    Come the next round of elections you will have to be double or tripled jabbed depending on the number they dream up, or you will be ineligible to vote for socialism is a creeping thing and you don’t realise that until it is too late.

  • nev 25/11/2021, 10:36 am

    Sleazy; meaning in English, Cambridge dictionary.
    Dirty, cheap, or not socially acceptable, especially relating to moral or sexual matters: sleazy people and places are involved in activities of a low moral standard: He spent his twenties hanging out in sleazy sex bars.
    From that it seems Albo never grew up, it’s not the hat, that’s there to give the head a purpose.
    It’s below the belt where the brain is; a precondition for all labor leaders.

      I thought I made it clear that was the case with the words:
      ***
      “I have a letter from the AEC agreeing it IS compulsory to vote formally, but because of the secret vote, it cannot be enforced “a fact that is not lost on the Australian public”.
      ***
      The fact that the law is not enforced do no mean the law does not exist.
      Voting correctly is compulsory. So is wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle, and other laws I regularly break.
      I last voted in 1980:
      Apart from the well-published rorts such as voting multiple times and, or, under another’s name – one can go to a polling booth at opening time, give one’s neighbour’s name and address and vote under his name, with or without his knowledge, before he arrives; one can go to each polling booth in one’s electorate, voting at each, up to 60, under one’s name, one’s neighbour’s, or someone else’s, provided one is prepared to answer “no” to the inane question “Have you voted elsewhere today?” – and enrolling under multiple names prior to the 16 April 2007 requirement to provide ID on enrollment, the events in the 1980 Norwood, SA, by-election made me determined to not take part in such a corrupt system no matter what the cost.

      The Norwood, SA, 1979 state election result (won by Frank Webster, Liberal) was overturned by a court decision, and a by-election held 16/2/1980. In the few months between the general election and the by-election, the Norwood electoral roll numbers increased by 10%. The vast majority were not newly turned 18yos, new residents, or people who had omitted to enroll by the previous cut-off date, they were election riggers – people from outside Norwood, typically Left-wing Uni students, who had voted in another electorate in the general election and who changed their enrolled, but not physical, address to vote again.

      There were up to 22 people enrolled at the one address, but the Electoral Commission did nothing. So my neighbour, Greg Crafter, ALP, romped in, and I was shortly after removed from the electoral roll, never to return.

      More recently, as reported in “The Advertiser”, a SA family claimed to have voted 159 times, including 31 times by a 17 year old, in a recent election. Even the AEC, which in the past has buried its head in the sand conceded it is possible, and if it’s possible, it is done, with only the extent being in question.

      And Australia has had the audacity to send observers to monitor other countries’ elections!

    Albo so desperately wants to be PM that he is devoid of any brain power, so concentrated on the prize he wants so badly is he. Another useless, brain dead politician at work.

  • Disgruntled 25/11/2021, 2:08 pm

    I only now listened to the Fordham/Albosleasy interview and I dislike Sleasy more than ever He is not worthy of the value of the oxygen that he breathes in!
    He says “a solution looking for a problem”. Stone the bloody crows (all of them). What sort of a answer is that?? All his excuses are puerile to the extreme. He speaks more crap than one would find on a 10000 unit pig farm and his talk is as smelly also! AND the hat! the bloody hat! He looks ever so stupid and silly wearing it. Who is he trying to impress; Again puerile!

    Then he has the hide to mention Lindiari. Isn’t that the electorate where all the Labor and Greens bussed in and sucked up to and instructed the voters how to vote? There would have been massive voter manipulation going on there! There can be no doubt, none at all about that!
    That is the place where Jacinta Price had a huge amount of racial slurs thrown at her; One bad one by the Green candidate and nobody Green or Labor said anything; Labor wouldn’t of course and the Greens were incredibly proud of their guys comment.
    With Voter fraud Jacinta had no hope in the lower house and for the senate she should be a shoo-in!

    It is no wonder Slease-bo wants the voter fraud to continue; What more does he want as he has almost ALL the media running cover and support for him already?
