Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union – Pt. 1.By Jeffery Reynolds 10/29/10 12:53 AM EDT 0 Comments
So, look. I know this is a controversial subject. Those in New Jersey, Illinois, Louisiana and Nevada will get all competitive. Californians will wonder who’s making so much noise upstairs. New York will wonder if I can be bought off to transfer the title to them.
Oregonians will say I’m harshing their mellow.
But it is undeniable. Oregon is the most corrupt State in the Union. I intend to show it here unequivocally over the next several weeks.
The first subject I’ll tackle is Oregon’s voting system. For those of you who aren’t aware, we did away with voting booths all the way back in 1998. We now have exclusive vote by mail.
What’s wrong with that? Doesn’t it allow for more voter participation, particularly among the elderly who may not normally be able to make it to the voting booth?
Well, a funny thing happened on the way to democracy. In order to vote, a person is not required to show that they are a citizen. One is not required to have a valid state ID or driver’s license, and you are now allowed to register by mail. Don’t believe me? Check out http://www.sos.state.or.us/elections/votreg/vreg.htm.
Well even still, the system can be trusted, can’t it?
Not if there’s ABSOLUTELY NO CHAIN OF CUSTODY.
You remember Chain Of Custody from the OJ Simpson trial, right? You know, where every person who touches the sensitive item is required to be able to account for its whereabouts throughout the process to ensure that it hasn’t been tampered with. (Part 1 CONT’D HERE)
