Dana Beyerle reported on Wednesday in the Tuscaloosa News that Uniontown in Perry County has 130 percent of their population registered to vote. In the municipal elections held on Tuesday, 1,431 ballots were cast, representing 125 percent of the population in Uniontown that is 18 or older. Beyerle also reported that 45 percent of the ballots cast were absentee ballots, compared to the 3 to 5 percent average for the state.
"Something is fishy in Perry County and it amazes me that Alabama Democratic Party Chairman Mark Kennedy refuses to acknowledge the evidence placed before him concerning voter fraud in Alabama," stated Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party. "It is completely obvious to anyone who looks at the facts with an open mind that voter fraud is alive and well in Alabama.
"Unfortunately, Kennedy is so busy trying to cloud the issue by hysterically screaming 'racism' everywhere he goes, he can't see that African American voters are being disenfranchised by the criminal activities such as what's happening in Uniontown," Armistead continued. "As former Alabama Democratic Congressman Artur Davis told the Montgomery Advertiser earlier this year, 'The truth is that the most aggressive contemporary voter suppression in the African American community, at least in Alabama, is the wholesale manufacture of ballots, at the polls and absentee, in parts of the Black Belt.'
"Fortunately, Artur decided to put principle above partisanship and has joined the Republican Party in our efforts to expose and combat voter fraud in Alabama. It is my hope that Chairman Kennedy will put aside politics and posturing long enough to realize he needs to investigate these claims for himself and do everything he can to promote fair and transparent elections at every ballot box in the state. Alabama voters, both Republican and Democrat, deserve that much," concluded Armistead.
