You've probably heard of people like Jimmy Carter monitoring foreign elections. Now our upcoming election is going to be monitored by people from Europe and Asia. They say they are going to look for suppression activities by conservative groups.
We know what that's about, don't we? There will be pressure to let anyone vote regardless of whether or not they have proof of who they are and where they live. You can bet there won't be any effort to keep fraud from happening. Not from these groups, who are surely liberal and backers of President Obama.
These monitors will deploy 44 observers from the Human Rights Office of the U.N.'s Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. It's part of a broader observation mission that will send out an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries.
This would be funny if it weren't deadly serious. From registering dead people to the nonexistent, the left has had a lot of experience in voter fraud. Monitor that!
