Exposed: Voter Fraud Going On In Nevada, Worse Than Ballot Stuffing

Exposed: Voter Fraud Going On In Nevada, Worse Than Ballot Stuffing

What we will expose in this article is indicative of Voter Fraud in all States and in National Elections.

 

Is it illegals voting?   No.   Is it voter machine fraud? No.   Both are very serious, and they do happen.  The worst Voter Fraud is the politicians defrauding voters into thinking they are the opposite of what they really are.  This fraud often decides elections and swings more votes than the other forms of voter fraud.

Today while driving to buy groceries in Reno I heard two Ben Kieckhefer radio ads, minutes apart.  Both of his ads claimed that he was an anti tax conservative Republican, and one mentioned his primary opponent Gary Schmidt in a Nevada State Senate race for the district that includes the capitol, Carson City.  It just happens I have met and talked with both Ben and Gary.

His ads are typical of one of the worst things about modern political campaigns.

As background the first time I met Ben Kieckhefer was when he was running for office in 2010.  It was at a Nevada Republican Assemblies meeting and he made probably his most famous quote of his life, “THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST WILL HAPPEN BEFORE I WILL VOTE TO RAISE TAXES.”  He really said that, heard it first hand.  Later in the press he was quoted as saying “If I could get Jesus to walk through that door, I might trade taxes for it.”  He got a lot of support from conservative Republicans as a result, and won the election in 2010.

And as you will see in the following video, when he was specifically asked about one vote on a very large ($620 million) tax increase, that would be one of his first votes if elected, he said on TV that he would vote against it.

Being this article is about voter fraud, guess what he did?  Yes, in his first major opportunity to vote for a big tax increase, the same one he promised to vote against, he voted for it.   Those same conservatives that support him then, now generally detest him.  Think detest is too strong?   Here is what Chuck Muth, a well know Nevada conservative and columnist, had to say about him:

And then there’s Sen. Ben Kieckhefer. What a low-rent street-walker.

After famously declaring on Tax Day, April 15, that “If I could get Jesus to walk through that door, I might trade taxes for it.” Well, Jesus didn’t walk through any doors, yet Kieckhefer reportedly traded his vote on the budget deal for, get this….a lousy $25,000 for the arts council.

Yeah, there’s an essential government service!

Not only is Kieckhefer a political prostitute, he’s a cheap one at that! But fret not for young Ben’s future. Expect him to trade his Senate seat sometime after the session for a lucrative lobbying career. Maybe he can nab that coveted slot as the brothel association’s lobbyist to replace retiring George Flint.  http://www.muthstruths.com/2011/06/02/hit-me-again-ike-and-put-some-stank-on-it/  

The truth is that Ben Kieckhefer defrauded the voters just as much as a dishonest car salesman that gives a sweet little old lady a test drive in a Cadillac STS, then sells it to her for $45,000,  then delivers a 1977 Yugo with a frozen engine.   In both cases the fraud greatly benefited the fraud that committed the fraud.

Is this unusual?  No it is standard procedure in American politics to create the most deceptive ads and slogans possible.  Remember “If you like your insurance, you can keep it, period!”  This will continue as long as we allow it, because it is very beneficial to the frauds that commit it.

It is not only okay for the news media to expose this and fight it, it is our duty.  The voters of America are being disenfranchised by this fraud.

You have heard the truth about what he has done.  There is more.  An independent organization in Nevada, Nevada Policy Research Institute (NPRI) ranks all legislators in Nevada and Ben has one of the most anti-conservative voting records of Republicans, with a 46% rating, even below that of one Senate Democrat. http://votesmart.org/interest-group/2017/rating/6972#.U31fHkdOV9A

Politicians never say they are in favor of special interests and lobbyists, yet as we know, most are, and cater to them instead of the people.  How does Ben Kieckhefer rate on resisting lobbyists?

His campaign contributions records say he got $1,000 from a lobbying firm called

MCDONALD CARANO WILSON LLP
Lawyers & Lobbyists
2010 2 $1,000

http://www.followthemoney.org/database/uniquecandidate.phtml?uc=142362

How much influence does that lobbying firm have over Kieckhefer?  His full time job provides insight on that.  Ben works for that very same firm, full time.  For this he was singled out as having one of the worst conflicts of interests of any USA legislators by Public Integrity.   “Ben Kieckhefer, a Republican state Senator in Nevada, is also the director of corporate communications for a Las Vegas law firm. In 2011, he told the Reno Gazette-Journal that he talks with the lobbyists at his firm so he knows what they are working on. “We need to make sure I have a clear understanding of what they’re testifying on so I don’t have a conflict of interest I don’t know about,” he said.”   http://www.publicintegrity.org/2013/03/18/12313/conflicts-interest-run-rampant-state-legislatures

So its OK to have conflicts of interest that you know about? It is when people know about conflicts of interest, that the corruption happens!

His opponent Gary Schmidt is best known for fighting for many years for open meetings and against government secrecy as a citizen.  His policies have always been consistent, although for a while he registered as a Democrat because of disgust at Republicans that did not do, what they said they would during campaigns.  He has rather amazingly received the endorsement of the Nevada Republican Party, the NVRA and the Carson City Republican Party Central Committee, even though he is running against a Republican incumbent in a primary.  This further illustrates the disgust that conservatives have for Kieckhefer.

Yet with all the special interest money that Kieckhefer has got, he is running ads that could likely fool a voter that does not follow the news and politics much, which is most voters.   That is the scam that happens over and over in America.  The most serious form of voter fraud we have.   Now that you know the facts, have a listen to Kieckhefer’s ad.

  1. And there is more…Ben and the other good-ol-boys both [r]epublican (RINO’s) and Democrats continue to play the same BS game with uninformed voters. These slim-balls get into office and send us further into a no-rights, unconstitutional place that no where resembles what our fore-fathers created in our beloved America. When do the good guys win? Maybe this Primary 2014 where we the people can weed out these crooks? Vote SCHMIDT, BUNCE, ARCHIE, DICKMAN, KAHN, FINEBERG and a bunch more!

  2. Hello Juanita, I got an email from a reader about how the Fineberg/Hickey race mirrors the Schmidt/Kieckhefer race. In terms of voting record it does, believe Hickey is one of the very few Republicans that has an even less conservative record than Kieckhefer in the Senate. However have heard no ads from Hickey so not in a position to comment on his honesty.

    Your point is valid, it is not just taxes, it is many issues where the voters and being defrauded and disenfranchised. It is what created the Tea Party, the TARP vote against the wishes of voters.

    • I have seen an ad mailer that was chock full of lies against Fineberg. Hickey is the Minority whip, for crying out loud, and has tremendous influence all over the state. In fact, the Lyon Co race between the honorable CONSERVATIVE Dr Robin Titus and Hickey’s puppet Frey is an example.

      This is the same mess we have in the Lt Gov race. Basically no choice except an unknown Chris Dyer from Las Vegas. There are major games being played with Harry Reid and his buddy Gov Sandoval over future positions and deals.

      This is like a big chess board with the uninformed as the pawns. That is why the State Republican Party delegates did not endorse some of the CORUPT incumbents. They endorsed Schmidt, Archie, both Bunce brothers and Dickman etc. Then the Nevada Republican Assembly members endorsed Schmidt, Archie, Dickman, Fineberg, both Bunce brothers and Khan. The real exciting endorsement by the Veterans in Politics of course endorsed Fineberg because Rick served and Pat Hickey was a Draft Dogger! Our Veterans must get this word out! Help these fantastic candidates NOW.

      May 24th starts Early Voting so please HELP–it is your country! Take out the crooks in the Primary!

  3. I am supporting Gary becasue he is the better candidate and has indicated a genuine devotion to our Constitution.

    Regarding the tone of political discourse: Make your point based on real facts, and couch your comments in temperate, polite language, so that at the end of a political contest, factions can still unite for the common good.

    I would like to see everyone involved in these campaigns, including bloggers, and general citizens, expressing their ideas in a polite manner. If we are in disagreement over votes that Ben made, then address the issue without ipugning his motives or character. Perhaps Ben had what he believed to be good rationale to change his position. Ask for a public explanation, without calling him a thief, or prostitute. Resorting to impugning the character of political representatives lowers the level of political discourse to the sewer and neglects to illuminate the underlying issues; in this case why Ben says that he will oppose tax increases, but then votes for them, without providing an adequate explanation for the change.

    I support candidates who express their devotion to government by our Constitution. I have supported Libertarians, Democrats and Republicans over the years and can attest that there are mostly good people in all of those groups. Politics by its very nature polarizes us into opposing factions, but we do a great disservice to our society when we fail to maintain a commitment to civil discourse throughout the process.

    Nevada is a place where, perhaps more than any other state in the Union, that our citizens need to find ways to constructively work together. We must find ways to be good to one another and to improve the quality of life here, because absolutely nobody else gives a damn about us.

    • Hi Tyler,

      Thanks for your email. Politics is way more ugly than it needs to be. And attempts at making it less ugly are good, and think that is what you are attempting.

      In regard to the article. First, although I do not think you were trying to distort what I said, I have not called Ben a prostitute. Chuck Muth did in one of his articles. And I quoted Chuck the sentence after saying:

      Those same conservatives that support him then, now generally detest him. Think detest is too strong? Here is what Chuck Muth, a well know Nevada conservative and columnist, had to say about him: And then there’s Sen. Ben Kieckhefer. What a low-rent street-walker.
      After famously declaring on Tax Day, April 15, that “If I could get Jesus to walk through that door, I might trade taxes for it.” Well, Jesus didn’t walk through any doors, yet Kieckhefer reportedly traded his vote on the budget deal for, get this….a lousy $25,000 for the arts council.
      Yeah, there’s an essential government service!
      Not only is Kieckhefer a political prostitute, he’s a cheap one at that! But fret not for young Ben’s future.

      The reason did that is the same as your motive. Wild and deceptive charges are made and harm people, that are just made up. Unfortunately it works. I hate it when deception works. So I said “Those same conservatives that support him then, now generally detest him.” I could have just made that up. Did not make it up, I know that is true, but readers need to be given evidence. Both to be fair and to give the reader the evidence they need to find out the truth. Chuck Muth is one of the best know conservatives in Nevada, his quote with a link to his site, provides the fairness and provides the proof. Fighting deception makes politics less ugly.

      I was 15 feet away from Ben, when he invoked the name of Jesus is a way that might violate one of the Ten Commandments. His election may not have happened unless he committed that fraud. I did accuse him of fraud and believe that objectively the article proves he did commit fraud against the voters.

      Best Regards, Dana

  4. I have been an unpaid registered lobbyist for nearly 30 years and have tried to work with these people to help make a better Nevada. I do care Tyler.

    I think that I have a pretty good idea about some of these people when they look me in the eye and tell me one thing but stab me and you, in the back as soon as they go in and vote, which is EXACTLY what they told me they would not do.

    So Tyler, why would you not say they are a lier or as Gary puts it now, being “Kieckhefered”? Please tell me how or why they should represent a certain party and do EXACTLY opposite of what their Platform says? Please tell me Tyler, why this helps that political party?

    I hear people tell me that they left or are leaving the party because of LIARS like some of these “politicians”? I hope that you are walking or calling for your chosen candidates because you too will hear what the people (of all parties) are screaming out for. They want a representative/employee who tells them the truth and keeps their promises. Is that asking too much? We want honesty and ethics?

    This process is like hiring a new employee or holding a yearly employment review. We review their promises and background, see if they can read or understand our employment requirements (platform, rules) and if they are our employees already, we review their past work ethics and capabilities.

    When we find out someone like Hickey is not a “war hero” but instead is “draft dodger” (admitted in his own book) shouldn’t we proclaim that from the mountain tops? It is the name that is appropriate. It is not mean. It simply is the truth. Shouldn’t a public or the employers entitled to know some of the facts that we find?

    You see, I have been in the “sewer” (Legislature) with these so called RHINO’s and they….NOT Republicans who keep their oaths and their promises….are totally ruining the Republican Party. Voters and moderates (really republicans for Reid) who do not believe that some of these truths should come out during the primaries are just wrong!

    When Reagan discussed not talking bad about other Republicans, that did not mean the small r, republicans which I call RHINO’s. That meant actually not talking bad (making up stuff–LIES) about Republicans. That is wrong, right?

    Frankly, the Primaries are the exact place this dirt must come forward. You see, the “super voters” the ones who generally watch the vote, watch the broken promises, and have been working within the party, will go to the polls. Those “super voters” hopefully will make the corrections needed to go forward with new employees.

    Their primary picks will then go forward to challenge other party picks. At that time, may the best candidate/employee win.

    I can understand what you were trying to say but sometimes Muth and others just have to say expressive words for non-super voters to understand. Gary’s new term, being “Kieckhefered” is a good descriptive word and hopefully will be added to Webster’s soon.

  5. […] Back to the Republican Primary.  Incumbents for the legislature, even if they pulled big bait and switch deceptions on the voters, were generally returned to office.   The bait and switchers who lost the endorsement of the Nevada Republican Party like Hickey and Kieckhefer both got 67%.  Gov. Sandavol got 90% and was seen as less of  bait a switchers than Hickey and Kieckhefer, so they did pay some price.  Both Hickey and Kieckhefer were in leadership as was Cantor.  Whereas Hickey’s opponent Fineberg was heavily outspent, Kieckhefer’s opponent Schmidt ran, with his own money, a lot of very clever radio and TV ads in the last few weeks. This article has background on the bait and switching. http://aun-tv.com/exposed-voter-fraud-going-on-in-nevada-worse-than-ballot-stuffing/ […]
