How Did Romney Get Zero Votes In 59 Precincts In Philadelphia, Can You Say Voter Fraud?

Can we call obvious voter fraud when we see it? The main stream media and liberal pundits want conservatives to just "get over it" and move on with life now that President Obama has won a second term. And even so-called Republican pundits like Joe Scarborough from Morning Joe think that conservatives need to just put the talk of voter fraud behind, accept Obama as president for 4 more years and change the party to reflect what he thinks is a more moderate voting public.

Well what are we supposed to do about obvious voter fraud? Are we supposed to just look the other way and act as if it didn't even happen? Sorry, we have to sound the trumpet loud and long because the main stream media will never do that for conservatives. An article from TheBlaze goes into some pretty interesting information about 59 precincts in Philadelphia not giving a single vote for Mitt Romney. If that sounds highly unlikely, it is check out part of the story below:

Mitt Romney's demographic troubles have, by this point, been well-rehearsed by practically every pundit across the political spectrum. However, even in his most troubled demographic (black voters, where Romney was trounced 94-6), the GOP nominee could probably comfort himself that at least “contrary to some polls“ he didn't get 0 percent.

But what if there are parts of the country where Romney not only got zero percent of the vote (a possibility in the case of vote totals so small that rounding renders them null), but actually got literally zero votes? For the nominee of a major party, that would be truly extraordinary – so extraordinary, in fact, that it would strain credulity.

And seeing as this highly unlikely turn of events happened not in one or two precincts, but in over 59 in Philadelphia, and 9 in Cleveland, that credulity can be safely said to be completely strained, if not broken. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

It's one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch.

These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst, but such results may not be so startling after all.

"We have always had these dense urban corridors that are extremely Democratic," said Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University. "It's kind of an urban fact, and you are looking at the extreme end of it in Philadelphia."

Do you think this story will ever make through the main stream media firewall?
