John Fund Predicts ...

Yesterday I attended an event featuring The Wall Street Journal's John Fund, who gave a fascinating talk about his book "Stealing Elections".

Fund is always an entertaining and insightful speaker, and on this occasion, he made two predictions which caught my attention:

1.  Fund predicted that the first bill Obama signs as president will be to mandate national "same day" voter registration.  His reasoning is that the first bill that Bill Clinton signed was "motor voter."  Obviously, this bill would go a long way toward making sure future elections can be stolen by groups like ACORN, etc.

2.  Fund predicted that even if Norm Coleman is certified the winner of the MN senate race over Al Franken, Harry Reid will refuse to seat him. 

As Fund explained, this is not unprecedented; In 1984, the House of Representatives refused to seat Indiana Republican Rick McIntyre who narrowly defeated his Democratic opponent Frank McCloskey by 34 votes -- even though the Republican was certified by the Indiana Secretary of State.  McCloskey ended up winning the seat in 1986.

.

In short, Harry Reid and the Democrats who control the senate could decide that MN should have counted the rejected absentee ballots which would have elected Franken if counted.

According to Article I, Sec. 5 the senate can choose whom to swear-in -- regardless of who the SoS certifies as the winner:

"Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members"

It will be interesting to see if either of these events occur, but either way, it is wise to anticipate the possibility that history might repeat itself...
