Thousands of Troops May Not Get to Vote

06 Nov

According to Senators, because ballots have been delayed in reaching military voters stationed overseas, according to Republican lawmakers angry over what they call a “serious failure” of the Dept. of Defense to safeguard the voting rights of the military.

Several families of service members serving overseas – and in the United States – contacted Fox News to express their concerns about voting problems.

Vickie Freel said her son, who is stationed at Pearl Harbor, never received his absentee ballot.

“I am so frustrated and angry about this,” Freel told Fox News. “There is something very wrong when anyone in our military is not afforded the same rights as the average citizen.”

Michael Boynton’s son is serving in the U.S. Army — in A fghanistan.

“He said they gave out the ballots and before they could do anything — like mark them, they were ordered to return them,” Boynton told Fox News. “He said they were told the ballots were incorrect — but they were never given the so-called corrected ballots.”

That was five weeks ago — and as of today those soldiers have not been given new ballots, he said.

Boynton said his son, who is in the Army, had a chance to look at the disputed ballots and they seemed correct.

He said it’s an outrage that his son and other members of the military may not be able to vote.

“As a parent I find this appalling and unconstitutional,” he said. “Not to allow our men and women who are putting their lives in danger on a daily basis to vote?”

Boynton placed the blame on the Obama Administration.

“Our troops do not believe President Obama is a strong commander or leader,” he said.

Well, no shit!  I didn’t know that!  I hope that his son is one of the proud, the few, who gets to pull the skinny gay Kenyan out of the Whitehouse by his big ears as they march him off to Leavenworth for trial.

    My firm conviction on this is the Kenyan & Company knew, according to a “Military Times” poll, that members of our Armed Forces preferred Romney over the Kenyan 2 to 1.

    But hey, what the hell, we can’t let a simple thing like a Soldier, Sailor, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman’s right to vote get in the way of winning an election!

    Ask any good Democrat in the WH and they will tell you…WE SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

    Leavenworth indeed…after trial lock the entire WH clan up in a cell together for life. Feed ’em cheese and coconut milk and they can crap in a bucket.

    After eighteen to twenty years of that and they’ll see the light!

      That is why the Kenyan will turn to foreign troops to try and do his bidding. They will be sent home in body bags, or better yet, burned in the field.

        Burn them in the field, buying body bags is a waste of taxpayers funds.
