The 2012 Vote

Orly Taitz told Rivera -- a newsman known to be a staunch pro-illegal alien advocate -- that she is working with a former North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) expert in digital databases to investigate complaints of fraudulent voter registration. According to the attorney, an examination of California's database revealed 723,620 voter registrations which are not valid because of missing birth dates on the forms.
"California's elections code 2150 and 2152 stipulate that an affidavit from an elector has to contain a valid birth date, valid country of origin, a Social Security number, drivers license or a number assigned to the voter if there is no Social Security number or Drivers License number," Taitz said.
Besides the more than 720,000 registrations without a birth date, Taitz and her NATO expert said there were over half a million registrations without a country of origin. Additionally, employees of offices of several registrars admitted that in some cases, where the databases did not contain a birth date, they simply created one, assigned a birth date such as 01.01.1850 (Jan. 1, 1850) or 01.01.1900 (Jan. 1, 1900). The attorney also told Geraldo Rivera's audience that thousands more "potentially invalid registrations are contained in the databases, where data shows individuals, who are 150 years old and 200 years old still voting."
Taitz said she has forwarded the results of her investigation to the FBI and her results are a part of a legal action that is currently being conducted. The maverick lawyer said she is seeking removal of all invalid voter registrations in California's database before the November election. She is also contesting the results of the primary election for the U.S. Senate, where she ran as a Republican candidate. A major non-partisan research project suggests that the U.S. is fast approaching the status of Third-World Nation when it comes to the integrity of local and national elections.
"Our democratic process requires an effective system for maintaining accurate voter registration information. Voter registration lists are used to assign precincts, send sample ballots, provide polling place information, identify and verify voters at polling places, and determine how resources, such as paper ballots and voting machines, are deployed on Election Day" state Pew Center statisticians.
These systems are plagued with errors and inefficiencies that waste taxpayer dollars, undermine
voter confidence, and fuel partisan disputes over the integrity of our elections, according to Pew researchers.
