Koch-backed Americans for Prosperity Busted Sending Out Misinformation About Voter Registration

koch-liarThe North Carolina state Board of Elections is being swamped with calls from confused residents who were sent blatant misinformation about voter registration by the Koch brothers-backed Americans for Prosperity.

Not only are residents being sent mailers with incorrect information, but some of these mailers are being sent to people who shouldn’t be getting them in the first place. Take for instance Jennifer Odom’s two-and-a-half year old daughter who died in 2012.

“It was disturbing for a couple of reasons,” said Odom. “First, Samantha would only be four-and-a-half years old. So it’s a far cry from the age of voting. Secondly, she passed away two years ago.”

Ms. Odom says she’s gotten three different mailers addressed to her daughter.

Brad Crone, a Democratic consultant, expressed some concerns about AFP’s motives.

“If you didn’t do your due diligence on scrubbing the data,” Crone wondered, “what is the ultimate motive that you’re trying to accomplish?”

But even going beyond the fact that this group has apparently been sending this information out to people who aren’t alive, or even legally allowed to vote, some residents have also reported getting mailers which have the wrong deadlines to register to vote and direct them to the wrong state agency.

Though AFP Deputy Director Donald Bryson says this was all just a big “mistake.”

“It was a mistake,” Bryson said. “We’re not going to make any bones about it. We made mistakes in the mailer.”

I’m sorry, but I’m not buying it. Ms. Odom’s deceased daughter was sent three different mailers. So this wasn’t just a “mistake” in one mailer. This is a problem that’s been repeated numerous times.


And while Bryson is trying to claim that the voter registration misinformation is just a simple “cut and paste error,” that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense either. How would a group of this size, and with the backing that they have, be so lazy with their diligence behind these mailers that they could “accidentally” send some people the completely wrong information about how to register to vote, or even where to go? And please explain to me how a political group which claims they’re trying to increase voter registrations – get something as basic as the deadlines wrong? A “mistake” like that would almost certainly have to be deliberate.

After all, AFP is backed by the Koch brothers, who’ve been caught blatantly lying about the Affordable Care Act hoping to turn Americans against the health care law. So it wouldn’t at all surprise me to see a Koch-backed group like AFP sending out misinformation to voters. Especially since I’m sure they’re well aware that history shows us that the lower the voter turnout, the better it is for the Republican party. And giving Americans the wrong information about registration deadlines, or even where to send their information to register to vote, would be a great way to ensure lower than normal voter turnout.

Oh, and if all of that doesn’t convince you that something shady is going in North Carolina, this isn’t the first time AFP has been involved in sending out misinformation about voting dates. In 2011, Americans for Prosperity sent out absentee ballot applications for eight Wisconsin state Senate recall elections. On these applications they told recipients to return them by August 11th. There was just one slight problem with that – six of the elections were scheduled for August 9th.

The group is now being investigated by the state for these faulty mailers.

    Not at all fishy! If the Dems did this, they would be drawn and quartered! Benghazi!

    • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

      I am still waiting for my FREE Benghazi T shirt from FOX “news”

      • Steve Brains

        The one with the Twilight Zone backround and the Wizard of Oz Rainbow with a Judy Garland Republican Leprechaun in ruby slippers saying, “F*ck the gold!!! There HAS to be dirt on Benghazi SOMEWHERE over…” ? I have been waiting for that to come too!

    • Steve Brains

      Right on the floor of the House.

  • korhal

    It’s pretty obvious that they’re trying to cause voting issues so they have something to campaign against later.

    • Steve Brains

      They are trying to minimize selected voter turnout!

  • Nemisis

    Seems to me that the majority of “Voter Fraud” is actually prevention, and election official related.

    • Steve Brains

      intentionally misleading voters so they can NOT make their vote at a proper precinct or on the correct day is NOT VOTING FRAUD to you?

      Now I have to admit I was wrong. your mother didn’t drop you down the stairs when you were an infant.

      She threw you down them like a basketball and dribbled you on hardwood floors all day!!!

  • crabjack

    In what universe is this acceptable? This should be a prossecutable offense!

    • Steve Brains

      With Republican obstructionism now “Business As Usual”.. Good luck.

  • TheEquilizer2U

    I guess you liberals forgot about Acorn?
    They were caught red handed corrupting the voting process.

    You have no legs to stand on leftists.
    You are guilty of fraud as anyone else!

    • Arthur C. Hurwitz

      No, Acorn assisted people in registering to vote. That should not be a crime. If you consider assisting people in registering to vote as “corrupting the voting process,” well, then, your objectives are in congruence with those of the Kochs.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        No Acorn was caught red handed corrupting the voting process.

        They were caught lying to voters, they were caught making votes from dead people.
        The list goes on and on and its all documented.

        Trying to lie about it only makes you look like an idiot.

      • RINOVirus

        ACORN engaged in Voter Registration Fraud, not Voter Fraud. Big difference.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        Trying to get out of a crime by admitting to another crime is beyond stupid…….

      • Bah

        I guess they just enjoy voter registration fraud? There’s no way they could have any other intentions. Last I checked people don’t register to not vote.

      • Steve Brains

        ?????????????????????????????????????????

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        kinda like u telling us that ISLAM appeared in 500AD– nearly a CENTURY BEFORE THE BIRTH OF MOHAMMED— and the OTTOMAN EMPIRE ( circa 1330 ad)was the cause of the CRUSADES? ( 1st one 1095)
        ….. that kinda’ stupid?
        lemme know

      • Steve Brains

        Which MAKES he REDS DOUBLY GUILTY!!!!

      • Steve Brains

        And your evidence IS?

      • lindylou

        Going door to door with a clipboard in marginal neighborhoods isn’t the easiest job in the world and if some pothead wants to register as Minnie Mouse it isn’t the canvassar’s fault.

      • felipe63

        Acorn did not makes votes from a dead people, whatever that is supposed to mean. That is complete and utter bullshit. Registering people to vote and actually casting a vote are 2 completely separate actions. Acorn was never involved in the latter.

        But don’t let a little thing like reality burst your bubble of willful ignorance.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        Acorn got into all kinds of legal trouble.
        Like the doctored video made by admitted federal criminal James O’Keefe.

        They had to change their name to save face.
        You leftists are pathetic

        Nothing is less accurate than CNN, MSNBc or Maddcow

      • Steve Brains

        Fox is only accurate in less than ONE out of FIVE segments. 82% of the time they are proven to be deceitful, misleading or outright LYING.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        Fox was already prove to be as factual, if not more in some cases, than all other networks.

      • 2Smart2bGOP

        It was only documented by a corrupt, rightwing, wannabe filmmaker, and his claims were thoroughly debunked. Just not on FOX “News.”

      • TheEquilizer2U

        Nothing debunked

        In fact, they had to change their name to get away from public scrutiny.

        They are insurance company employed lawyers, accountants, analysts and claims adjusters. They murder 10’s of 1000’s of people annually.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        And now that the govt is involved, there will be more accountants and lawyers.
        The number of people dieing and on waiting lists will grow every year.

      • Steve Brains

        Medicare (when Republican governor’s are NOT defrauding it) and Veteran’s Healthcare (when Republicans are not DEFUNDING it) have some of the best quality care in this country. The VA has fewer malpractice suits than ANY OTHER hospital system, including the Religious ones.

        Total Government Control of the healthcare system would cut costs in HALF and with the profit motive taken out of the healthcare equation, patient CARE will become the #1 priority.

      • TheEquilizer2U

        The VA also has quotas and waiting lists
        Cant wait until you get on your list, I hope you suck it up and wait for that much needed surgery.
        Don’t go crying to the govt…lol

      • Steve Brains

        But THAT is caused by REDPUBLICAN DEFUNDING over decades. NOT planning for the unavoidable outcome of THOUSANDS of WOUNDED from a DECADE+ long war was perhaps the most EGREGIOUS of REDPUBLICAN War Crimes because that miss cost hundreds of lives and was not only ENTIRELY preventable by NOT forcing tax cuts for the Rich, but it was PERPETRATED ON IT’S OWN SOLDIERS.

        AMERICA does NOT deserve to have ONE MORE volunteer until they fix ALL the damage theRepublican War for Oil caused.

      • Steve Brains

But “MSM LIBERAL media king CBS thought they would INVEST a year and undisclosed amounts of funds to plunder through a BENGHAZI SCAM FOR A YEAR, BROADCAST IT FOR WEEKS and finally lamely apologize and suspend, (NOT FIRE) the investigator.

        Liberal Media My ASS!

    • RINOVirus

      In all likelyhood ACORN deserved what it got because it was so poorly run. But I guess that doesn’t matter to you because you likely don’t want them to vote anyway because they don’t “deserve” their rights as much as you. Funny you mention voter fraud when most of the prosecutions for it have been against Republicans. Voter Fraud is just an excuse by people like you to create a backdoor Poll Tax to keep people you don’t like away from the voting booth. Statistically, you have a better change of getting struck by lightning than witnessing a case of voter fraud (0.000032%). In the end, nothing will happen to AFP. The investigation will go nowhere because every level of government in North Carolina is controlled by Republicans. If a left wing group had done this it would get 24 hour coverage on Fox (which we saw with ACORN).

        PRAISE JEEEESUS!

      • FD Brian

        Voter ID laws are being passed because republicans know that gerrymandering their way to victor isn’t going to last much longer and they can’t win over the hearts of the masses with their ideas anymore. If their policies and theories actually worked their would be no democrats.

      • Steve Brains

        They can’t corrupt the poor white trash vote WITHOUT a NONWHITE on the DEM ballot! Not to mention the 2 great mysteries of 2014.

        How many NEW Latinos at the polls and
        How many women speak up for themselves!

      • Steve Brains

        bad management has killed many worthwhile endeavors. Take the GOP fpr example. Their AUTOPSY concluded the ONLY CODE BLUE TREATMENT was get sexual, racial and economic! Blend into MORE than the 1%. But their failure will be evident in the next election. REDS have already BOUGHT this one.

      • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

        hopefully that is incorrect: repubs are stultifying america

      • Steve Brains

        Cool word! The “Stultification” of America.

      probably true, just remember that the next time you call out dems for doing something republicans have already done.

        TWICE I have had my 4th Amendment security violated. By FEDERAL agents. In a 1000 person town, 50 miles into the desert from the nearest Mall.

        Once with knock on the door without a warrant and once with a shotgun to the base of an FBI agent’s skull as he peeked in My bedroom window.

      NOOOO! they were filmed by a group that set them up and they REFUSED ON CAMERA!!!!! In SEVEN STATES in 2008, Republican contractors out registering voters DESTROYED mote than 250,000 registrations before being caught. I don’t know how much time the owner of that company pleaded out for, but I noticed it NEVER came to trial and was MINIMIZED by the fraudulently named “LIBERALLY BIASED MEDIA” that is ENTIRELY OWNED and CONTROLLED by “right wing 1% Conservative CEO’s and Boards”. Murdock, Time Warner, Viacom…

      These have NEVER BEEN liberal groups. Which is why 250,000 counts of voter fraud by their CONTRACTOR was never a new item.

    Looks like we need voter ID to stop these guys.

    • nette

      How does that stop the misinformation given?

  • Cemetery Girl

    How in the world did a little girl that died at age 2 and would only be 4 even make their contact list? I am curious how they compliled their mailing list and the filter they used. Did they troll the public records for names and addresses?

    • Bah

      Nobody is aware of the details, but I had to stop reading the article when he said that there was no way the Koch brothers could have screwed this up with the backing they have, so it must be on purpose. I instantly remembered the ACA website failure, and how the government has virtually unlimited resources. They must of done it on purpose then too. Just another false assumption and logic fail.

      • Cemetery Girl

        I think it really depends on the amount of errors and such. Typos happen, even mixing up dates, although you still kind of question the proof reading, but at some point it is rational to question extensive errors. It shows a complete lack of concern about the quality of the work. The reason behind the neglect can be disputed, but the more errors the less likely it seems to be an oversight.

  • Steve Brains

    THIS is the felonious VOTER FRAUD we as Democratic Patriots should be fighting! Since money is no object now, in the mass deception of the Redpublican party and their financiers… This is NOt a Liberal of Conservative issue. This is The SOVEITIZATION OF AMERICA by corrupt micro interests on a massive macrosocial level. These last 15 years with the rigged elections, Voter disenfranchisement as policy, racial and sexual exclusionary legislation drummed up and ‘gifted’to REDPUBLICANs with hefty campaign bribe/contributions, scholarships for their children and no show jobs for their wives and friends.

    Not to mention wholesale corruption of the Constitution by it’s single Constitutionally mandated DEFENDERS SCOTUS to asystemically add money and deny voting rights to the NOT RICH and you can surely see how, in 20 years your children will be in the streets as the Chinese are in Hong Kong DEMANDING FREE ELECTIONS!!!

    Do you WANT to see a Godzilla Government dictating who you sleep with, procreate with, and how you get the job done? VOTE REPUBLICAN

    Do you want the NSA to have videos of your pelvic, gyno and prostate exams on file for posterity? VOTE REPUBLICAN

    Sounds like…wait for it…VOTER FRAUD to me. Surely they have broken some law. If not there should be laws against this kind of thing. So what say, you voter fraud fanatics? You willing to support prosecution of those involved if there is a law that was violated, or if not, to pass laws prohibiting this kind of fraud? Oh, wait that would be a violation of their free speech rights wouldn’t it? Thanks to the Citizens United decision. So step up you voter fraud fanatics and DO THE RIGHT THING, assuming you have any idea what that truly means.

  • hdusey

    Reminds me a the Fox News slogan: “We deceive, you believe”… yeah, sure I’m buying that!!!

  • Eg Kbbs

    Out of context, perhaps an error. But looking in context with the Rove tactics of telling Dems to vote on an alternate date, calling a center giving people rides to the polls so many times that it ties up their phone lines, etc. etc. etc.

    No question. Such misinformation is SOP for Rove, Koch, and Americans for Prosperity.

        Their ID is giving them the wrong information. The gerrymandering with IDs needs to stop, so many are being displaced and are confused. I am terrified that an individual might show up at the wrong address stated on the ID, and will be slaughtered by the 50 caliper assault knifes that are used to slice sandwiches, and to spread may-omg it’s black. Many of their graves will be engraved with “In honor of the Kock brothers.” This has got to stop. When will our brains jump out of their skulls and begin to suck on the face of the Kock brothers?

    I read the whole article from Rolling Stone and I can say one thing for sure, it’s people like the Koch’s and companies like Koch Industries is why we have so much regulation, because of peoples failure to do the right thing, we have to have a government crack down on stuff like this.

    Maybe the Koch brothers can purchase ID’s for everyone to use at the polls. This would help stop voter fraud.

    • gian keys LOVES shemale porn

      that’s actually funny AND a great idea!!! what PATRIOTISM the ‘brothers’ will show by doing this– and at maybe 2 dollars cost for an ID it wouldn’t be too much money AND—-AND—-AND—
