Voter Fraud Is On The Agenda For Tonight's Arcadia City Council Meeting

link
A story that originally broke here on The Tattler on Apr 24 ("Landslide Roger: How Extensive Was Voter Fraud In Arcadia's City Council District 5?" link) is now up for discussion at tonight's Arcadia City Council meeting. Four of the folks on the council (Tom Beck is off viewing large animals in South Africa and as of this typing shall not be calling in), will be attempting to get a handle on what exactly went down in Arcadia's 5th district during the election there last month.

Apparently a considerable amount of homes there experienced something of an election population explosion, with empty nests filling back up with non-resident voting offspring no longer of fledgeling age. If agreed to this evening, the City Attorney would then hopefully take the matter to the District Attorney for a thorough forensic investigation.

So you know, voter fraud in a serious offense in California, with those participating in such a crime facing possible pokey time. Alex Padilla, who is the current California Secretary of State, has a web page dealing with this topic (link), and spells out the penalties for voter fraud this way.

Corruption of the Voting Process Any person who commits fraud or attempts to commit fraud, and any person who aids or abets fraud or attempts to aid or abet fraud, in connection with any vote cast, to be cast, or attempted to be cast, is guilty of a felony, punishable by imprisonment for 16 months or two or three years.  (§ 18500.)

Here is how the Agenda Report for this item reads.


Those concerned with vote count integrity will probably want to tune in for these one. Some of the key evidence to be considered will be the documentation we provided in our Apr 24 report.

Blogs matter. Sometimes.

Does anybody read The Hub?

Yesterday's Tattler post dealt with the topic of The Hub, and while the reader turnout for this report was decent, it in no way compared with what we saw for Sunday's news about those 18 threatened olive trees on Michillinda Avenue in Sierra Madre.

It has since occurred to me, does anyone even read The Hub, or care what about what they have to say? Perhaps not. Check this out. Here is a screenshot from the article that ran there on Apr 29. The topic dealt with grocery stores.


You see that little number in the upper right hand corner, just beneath the headline and next to the graphic depicting an eyeball? That's right, the number is 16. As in only 16 people opened that article and looked at it. In two days.

That is, like, an absurdly low number for a website of county-wide pretensions. A graveyard number.

You have to wonder why they even bother.

    1. I believe the issue as described by Mod is grown children voting at their parents' homes in Arcadia RATHER than in the city where those children actually live.

      So kindly explain how such votes added a single vote to Hillary. Please document one instance with the name of a voter who voted for her twice. Then continue documenting it until you hit the 3 million mark.

      Can't? Didn't think so. Remember: Blind loyalty to the Idiot-In-Chief is not evidence.

  5. "Why do they even bother". Because blog post readership and active engagement are directly proportional... Do you really believe this? Yes, publicity drives a story, but only so much. The readers are not peons, sometimes a story should be written to be referred back to, when needed, or should all journalism, digital and conventional, be based on immediate views only. If it bleeds it leads, only?

    Or that people only care about an issue if someone writes about it, and if you do not get enough clicks in a certain amount of time, the world is falling apart. Are these the guiding principles of this blog?

    If not, so what is the point of the second part of this post?

    I would suggest that the hoi polloi in this country are not as indifferent as you seem to wish to point out, and that at large page views in isolation mean nothing.

    I seem to remember quite a few articles on a house in Sierra Madre that was demolished seemingly against code. Many people read, commented, and contributed, and how did that turn out?

    Engagement and solutions matter.

    Women at NBC felt ‘pressured’ to sign ‘women’s letter’ supporting Tom Brokaw, report says

    Efforts by a throng of women at NBC to defend legendary newsman Tom Brokaw against sexual harassment allegations may have backfired.

    Apparently not all female employees were on board with the idea of signing a “women’s letter,” defending the embattled former “NBC Nightly News” anchor. Page Six quotes female staffers who said they felt “under huge pressure” by female superiors to sign the letter.

    NBC stars Rachel Maddow, Mika Brzezinski, Andrea Mitchell and Maria Shriver (still a “Today” show correspondent) rushed to sign the letter last week, touting Brokaw’s support of women in the NBC workplace and calling him “a man of tremendous decency and integrity,” Page Six reported

  32. So what specific commitments were made to identify voter fraud in the past district 5 & 2 elections?
    I did not understand exactly what the city is turning over to the County for voter investigation. I thought
    at least one (?or more) district 5 residents had already turned in information to the County to be investigated.
    What I heard was that residents with information on voter fraud could contact the County.
    What is being done to clean up the old city voting records? Will any list be made of older children who have
    since moved out that can be checked ? Will look for an update tomorrow but overall, sounds like very little
    change can be expected into voter fraud in this city . I hope I am wrong. Parliamentary procedure took place
    but did leadership towards fixing the fraud really occur. If the city does not have the power to investigate,
    why didn't the City Attorney make that clear at the 4/24 meeting ? And Dominic is taking his raise although he
    did not have the foresight to clean up old voter rolls before the elections after Redistricting ?
