Re: Consolidation Voter Fraud
By Ken Bylund


November 15, 2006

Should Ketchikan Politicians be able to put Consolidation on the ballot again and again and just ignore us when it gets denied by voters? Suggesting that politician's designs and applications for Ketchikan's absentee ballot by [63 cents mail - oops, got caught - damage control] for/against Consolidation is meerly stupidity is a clever application of "The Kansas City Shuffle - look left, look right, look left and their gone!"

What folks need to question is how many chances will these poor dumb bureaucrats give us to UNDO CONSOLIDATION if it were to pass? THINK ZERO! So... stupidity has no part in the mix... but underestimating their public might. The advantage is to the Politicians who get more power, more of your money... and their Cronys.

Think maybe all those foreign workers and shop owners living in the Carribean and around the globe got absentee ballots? We're still smarting from the sting of Borough residents not being allowed to vote against their cruise ship docks... but the absentee merchants got to vote... anybody think this isn't FRAUD look it up in Black's Law Dictionary... sure smells like FRAUD... tastes like FRAUD... good thing we didn't step in it.
