Kate Brown and her State of Reknown

Florida’s Secretary of State has gone through the databases, located, and purged some 53,000 dead people from the voter rolls. Here in Oregon, Secretary of State Kate Brown has other things to do: willfully misrepresenting election law in order to favor her fellow Democrats, trying to force Republicans out of the voters’ pamphlet, and refusing to destroy unused ballots as required by law, among other things. Small wonder she’s been given the #KorruptKate tag – she’s been working hard to earn it.

Unlike Florida’s SoS, Katie’s too busy to Lk3-251x300bother with trivialities; voter fraud, after all, is simply a nonissue in Oregon –  folks like Lafayette Keaton notwithstanding.

Keaton not only voted for a dead person in Oregon, he voted for his dead son.  Making Keaton’s fraud easier was Oregon’s vote by mail scheme, which has opened up gaping holes in the integrity of elections.

But the integity of elections isn’t nearly as important to Oregon’s SoS as rigging them. Oregon has very critical issues facing it, such as requiring schools to eliminate mascot names like “Indians,” “Chiefs” and “Braves.” Presumably, the next step will involve eliminating things like “Fire Chief” and “Chief of Police”. Mustn’t risk offending our Indian compadres, after all. Troutdale will soon be home of the “Fighting Smelt”, who will battle the Sandy Spotted Owls in epic high-school sports action.

These are critical issues which demand immediate, hard-hitting approaches for successful and sustainable resolution. Election integrity? Not so much.
