Thread for small illegal alien voter items

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Fri Nov 02, 2018 12:28 pm

I couldn't find a good recent existing one to put this in.

In this case, illegal aliens voting is itself legal, but ...

Every Vote Counts
Reason
Two years ago, San Francisco, California, voters approved a measure allowing non citizens, including illegal aliens, to vote in school board elections. This year, the city spent about $310,000 trying to register non-citizens to vote. They signed up exactly 49.
Why do people who want to "get money out of politics" not see that public money is equally corrupting?

If left wing activists and not actual pocket-lining politicians, I do not see how this is on "their side".

Getting a "foot in the door" of voting, starting with something of little consequence?
Then Skank Of America could start in...

A handful of illegals voting in school board elections where their children go to school?

I don't even see that as essentially harmful, though it smacks of moral posturing.

My theory is this was a conspiracy. But not a "conspiracy theory" conspiracy about THEMTM. Just a few crooked local pols grabbing some cash.

An ordinary routine conspiracy. 8)
