The Sacramento Bee: LA voter fraud: Cigarettes paid to homeless for signatures, DA says

I know this is an old article from 2 years ago, but many on the left STILL claims this is a hoax.

Nine people face felony charges in Los Angeles after a large-scale election fraud scheme used cash and cigarettes to bribe the homeless, according to the district attorney’s office.

Hundreds of homeless people who live on Skid Row — a notoriously poor section of the city — were offered $1 bills or cigarettes to forge other people’s signatures on voter registration forms and on petitions to get measures on the California state ballot, prosecutors said.

“They come in and they target the homeless population because they can get so many [signatures],” Los Angeles Police Department Capt. Marc Reina said in a phone interview in September. “When you see those tables and lines of people down the sidewalks it gets conspicuous, and we’re able to take action.”

The Epoch Times: Teacher Praises Western Civilization, Her School Fires Her

California math teacher Karen Siegemund says she was fired for making a speech outside the classroom in defense of Western civilization.

Siegemund, president of the Los Angeles-based American Freedom Alliance and who holds a doctorate in education and American culture, spoke in May at her group’s “Long March Through the Institutions” conference, which “explored the Left’s ongoing multi-decade takeover attempt of numerous public and private institutions to effect a radical transformation of America.”

The phrase, “The long march through the institutions,” refers to revolutionary change effected by incrementalism and was coined by German student leader Rudi Dutschke in the 1960s, though it is widely misattributed to Marxist theorist Antonio Gramsci, according to Marxist academic Joseph A. Buttigieg, the late father of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg.

During the offending oration, Siegemund said, “Each of us here believes in the unparalleled force for good that is Western civilization; that is our heritage, whether we were born here or not.”

Soon after the address, she was told her teaching contract at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a private K-12 school, wouldn’t be renewed, The College Fix reported.

NBC Southern California: Indictments Charge Widespread Voting Fraud Scheme on Skid Row in Los Angeles

But I thought voting fraud was just some right wing urban legend?

An indictment unsealed in Los Angeles charged nine people accused of participating in voting fraud schemes — in which homeless people were allegedly offered cash or cigarettes in exchange for forged signatures on initiative petitions and voter registration forms.

Seven of the accused pleaded not guilty early Friday. The two others have not yet appeared in court on the new case.

Prosecutors have accused the group of 14 felonies for a variety of alleged acts during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles, including charges of circulating an initiative with forged or fictitious names, signing fictitious names, registering fictitious persons, and making payment for signatures, according to the indictment. None of the defendants faces all of the charges.

NBC Southern California: Rotting Trash Piles Sky-High in LA, Attracting Rats and Raising Concerns of a New Epidemic

What else can you really say?

All I know is we don’t need democRATS exporting California to the rest of the nation.

Rat-infested piles of rotting garbage left uncollected by the city of Los Angeles, even after promises to clean it up, are fueling concerns about a new epidemic after last year’s record number of flea-borne typhus cases.

Even the city’s most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA’s busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.
