Voter Participation Center - Let the Dead Dog LIE

Dogs and the dead get voter-registration forms

The headline July 2012 from The Seattle Times.  With that in mind, let's see how the media covers the George Soros affiliated group Voter Participation Center. Read the following AP article and judge the connections and coverage of this "get out the vote effort."  Looks like AP is announcing their NEXT MAILING without question.

Voter registration drives adopting new methods

Friday, Sept. 7, 2012 | 6:04 a.m.
"A growing number of organizations that sponsor voter registration drives are turning to sophisticated data-mining to target specific groups such as young people, ethnic minorities and conservative Christians.
They also are using direct mail, the Internet and other new strategies partly in response to state laws that have restricted traditional face-to-face registration drives.
That's one reason why the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and National Council of La Raza are partnering with the Voter Participation Center, a pioneer in direct-mail registration drives. The Washington, D.C.-based center is mailing nearly 4 million applications targeted to minorities, unmarried women and young people."

 The Center for American Progress and George Soros connections to this group is immediately obvious, so I am sure this group has an interesting history. Let's take a look at

Women's Voices, Women Vote: Did the Outreach Overreach?

By Shailagh Murray

Big Names:

" Women's Voices, Women Vote is one of those little advocacy organizations with a lot of big names attached: Former White House chief of staff John Podesta is a board member, Hillary Rodham Clinton campaign manager Maggie Williams has consulted, and founder Page Gardner worked for the 1992 Bill Clinton campaign, to name a few"
Voter Supression or Blunder?

 " But for all the paid and unpaid talent associated with the group, which focuses on registering unmarried women to vote, it's landed in legal hot water in North Carolina for robo-calling voters after the primary registration date and for not identifying the group in the call."

" On Friday, Barack Obama's campaign weighed in by circulating the transcript of a National Public Radio report on the calls. It noted that the North Carolina calls seemed to heavily skew to African Americans, including many women who had already registered, causing them to question whether they were eligible to vote in the primary on Tuesday."

Same Names

Now we can see this is just another fraudulent leftists voting registration organization. Here is the background on Center for American Progress.


  • Think tank headed by former Clinton chief of staff John Podesta
  • Helped launch Media Matters For America in 2004

The Center for American Progress (CAP) describes itself as “an independent nonpartisan educational institute dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action” in such areas as “energy, national security, economic growth and opportunity, immigration, education, and health care.”

The prime mover behind CAP's creation was the billionaire philanthropist George Soros. Deeply disappointed by George W. Bush's presidential election victory in 2000, and by the subsequent election of Republican majorities in both houses of Congress two years later, Soros was convinced that the Republicans' success was a result of their superior think-tank infrastructure and media presence. Thus he called for the creation of a new left-wing, pro-Democrat think tank that, with proper funding, could establish a high-profile media presence of its own—and thereby counter the conservative message machine more directly than did existing liberal-left thinks such as the Brookings Institution, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the Urban Institute, and Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

Investigative journalist Robert Dreyfuss wrote in the March 1, 2004 edition of The Nation: "The idea for the Center [CAP] began with discussions in 2002 between [Morton] Halperin and George Soros, the billionaire investor.… Halperin, who heads the office of Soros' Open Society Institute, brought [former Clinton chief of staff John] Podesta into the discussion, and beginning in late 2002 Halperin and Podesta circulated a series of papers to funders." The Capital Research Center reports that Podesta eagerly “took on the project of creating a new laboratory for liberalism.”

Soon thereafter, Soros and Halperin (who would become CAP's senior vice president) recruited Harold Ickes—chief fundraiser and former deputy chief of staff for the Clinton White House—to help organize the new think tank, which was launched on July 7, 2003 as the American Majority Institute. The name was changed to Center for American Progress on September 1, 2003.

Hillary Clinton
, too, was intimately involved in the formation of CAP. She told reporter Matt Bai of The New York Times Magazine on October 12, 2003, "We need some new intellectual capital. There has to be some thought given as to how we build the 21st-century policies that reflect the Democrat Party's values." She later told The Nation's Robert Dreyfuss: "We've had the challenge of filling a void on our side of the ledger for a long time, while the other side created an infrastructure that has come to dominate political discourse. The Center [CAP] is a welcome effort to fill that void."

 There is a more on the funding etc. Center for American Progress



Now Back to The Seattle Times Article  


Dogs and the dead get voter-registration forms

A group called the Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some 5 million registration forms in recent weeks, but there have been reports of bizarre and questionable mailings addressed to animals, dead people, noncitizens and people already registered to vote.

A group called the Voter Participation Center has touted the distribution of some 5 million registration forms in recent weeks, targeting Democratic-leaning voting blocs such as unmarried women, blacks, Latinos and young adults.
But residents and election administrators across the country also have reported a series of bizarre and questionable mailings addressed to animals, dead people, noncitizens and people already registered to vote.
Brenda Charlston wasn't the only person to get documents for her pet: A Virginia man said similar documents arrived for his dead dog, Mozart, while a woman in the state received forms for her cat, Scampers.
 Or how about this:
In this photo taken Wednesday, July 11, 2012, Brenda Charlston holds a photo of her long-deceased dog, Rosie, and a voter registration form for "Rosie Charlston" that arrived in the mail for the canine last month, in Seattle. Rosie was a black lab who died in 1998.

It appears the Dept of Justice and Soros's Brennan Center For Justice  have worked closely together to litigate and intimidate States and supporters of measures to combat voter fraud. The complicit media and propagandist fact checkers will worry about the 'messaging'. A message heavy on the race-hustle, which naturally leads to class envy in their hyphenated-victimhood-blamegame.

State's rights and individuality are enemies of the new left and the collective. They will try to win by ANY means necessary.
