The larger question being ignored in the Newt didn't qualify for the Va primary story is the OBVIOUS MASSIVE Voter Fraud that went into his failed effort. The process to qualify for the Va. Primary run off is to secure merely 10,000 signatures of registered Va voters .

It does not seem inconceivable that a candidate with a LONG history of "ethical lapses" would resort to such tactics.

    It has been reported that Newt submitted roughly 11,000 plus signatures and the election officials were unable to confirm at least 10,000 of these were valid qualifying voters (we don't yet know how many actual signatures were determined to be valid or false).

    That means at a minimum that 9 to 10% of the signatures Newt's proxies gathered were non-qualifying or fraudulent

    According to Fact-Check.org (the REPUBLICAN funded truth seeking site) they looked into all forms of voter fraud during the peak o the dreaded ACORN scandals and discovered the Bush Admin has aggressively pursued cases of any form of voter fraud ...in fact this effort was behind the infamous firing of the Nine Federal US Attorneys.

**They discovered and prosecuted and convicted 70 people on voter fraud in the 2006 federal election cycle

**FEC records for 2006 show  80,454,673 valid votes were counted for federal office (ignores state and local voting) were cast in that cycle.

**THAT's a 0.000009% rate of REPUBLICAN PROVEN VOTE FRAUD nationwide.

**Other reliable voter advocate sources have put the overall conviction rate for voter fraud over the last decade at roughly half this rate - 0.000005% across over 550,000,000 votes cast.

If measured against the KNOWN rate of voter fraud, it suggests Newt's minions engaged in massive voter fraud that is roughly

**111,111 times greater than the norm!!!

**3700 times greater that was alleged (but never proven) by partisan players was committed by the dreaded ACORN

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE FROM THE "SELF-APPOINTED PROTECTORS OF DEMOCRACY? "

Where is that phoney liberal media bias that should be all over this story?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
