    In 2008, Rush Limbaugh did the same thing, telling Republicans to vote in the Democrats primary….

    Republicans urged their base to change registration & vote in the 2016 Democratic WV primaries to try & boost Bernie Sanders. Nixon’s Campaign to Re-Elect the President (aka CREEP) planted fake letters to the editor & used other dirty tricks to take down Edmund Muskie. In 2010, Arizona Republicans recruited homeless people to run as Green Party candidates. Then there’s Willie Horton & swiftboating Kerry.

    Republicans have spent the last half century making electoral politics as ugly & unappealing to normal people as they can. It’s no surprise they regularly wind up with the likes of Christine “I’m not a witch” O’Donnell, Todd “legitimate rape” Aiken & other whackos like their MI-3 candidate.

    PS- Hillary Scholten will make a great Rep.

    Someone is having some problem separating openly played strategy with total BS. SK can try for parallelism if the Dems deny the outcome of the primary votes.

    Where’s the cheating? Ultimately, the voters decide whether to follow the instructions. It’s disingenuous to compare politics to voter fraud.

    Primaries should be party exclusive. Republicans able to vote for Republicans only and Democrats able to vote for Democrats only. The parties are taking care of party business. As the Eagles wouldn’t allow the Elks to walk in and vote in their business meetings so it should be for Democrats and Republicans voting in the other party’s business. To the extent this is happening in state party primary elections is the extent of the weakening of the party system. And of course, Independents shouldn’t be allowed to vote in either party’s business because they don’t belong to, or have interest in, either party.

    Not a fan of this practice. I know some Democrats who thought the same re. Trump in 2016. Make it easier… didn’t work out so well. I know GOP who have done it voting for Dems. Just vote for the person you want to be in office.

    So, are you saying that those tactics are A) illegal cheating and B) unused by Republicans? Because no.

    The Texas GOP primary winner will win this area’s general elections, regardless of how crazy the candidate, so I voted in the GOP for the less crazy candidates…it didn’t help, 2 of the GOPers are under felony indictments and still won bigly.

    Well, both parties are pretty awful. That’s the way the game is played and no one gets to the federal level who doesn’t know how to play the game. It simply isn’t possible to win if you don’t play at least a little bit dirty, because you put yourself at too much of a disadvantage against the multitude of people who don’t have those silly scruples. So, accept that fact, get past it, and figure out who will be working for you and who will be working against you. All politicians basically work for their own reelection. They may sincerely believe that their being in a position of power helps people they care about, or they may be simply interested in keeping a paying job. The result is the same. The voters need to be informed in order to separate the ones who are interested in helping the middle class from the corporate stooges. If you really want to know who a candidate will be working for, look at a site called “Open Secrets”. There are others, but this is a good one. It will tell you who is financing their campaign. We all have to do the bidding of who ever is supplying the money to pay our bills. So do politicians. If most of their money is coming from individuals, unions, or other organizations representing the Middle Class, that is who they are going to work for. If most of their money is from banks, etc, they are going to work for the 1%. They don’t really have any choice if they want to win the next election. To vote their conscience against the 1% would be political suicide.

    Many Trump supporters actually did illegal things. The things cited against Democrats are ethically sketchy, but nothing illegal. I admit I don’t approve of voting for the very worst people humanity has to offer in republican primaries to sabotage Republicans. The fact that these people are serious contenders demonstrates the level to which the Republican party has sunk…why compound a bad situation?

    Republican RNC agreed to stop using voter intimidation tactics in a signed consent decree lasting 35 years. Now expired. Google “Ballot Security Task Force”

    Republican “governance” plans when they achieve power: “Investigate, Litigate, Incarcerate” all Democrats.

    Oh, and “sunset” Social Security, Medicare, and Veterans’ Benefits within five years. Who cares how many they kill – they’re all useless “takers”, anyway.

    That’s pretty much it, besides stocking the judiciary with co-conspirators and cronies. Speaking of which, they also want to fire all government employees and replace them with political operatives, cronies, sycophants, and commissars.

    Oh yeah, and destroy democracy to cement their power. Another big “governance” item.

    What was that about “cheating”, Mr. Kelley? How quaint.

    So, just out of principle, why not turn down the money, you know, like it was “dark” money?

    Gee, IIRC didn’t either Bill O’Reilly or Rush Limbaugh suggest that GOPers reregister as DEMS so they could fix the vote in Dem primaries?
