Paul’s opponent, who is Kentucky’s chief elections official, suspiciously confident despite 18 point deficit
Tuesday, May 18, 2010
Comment from Alex Jones: With the most recent polls showing Trey Grayson trailing Rand Paul by a gargantuan 18 points, we should view his overconfidence with extreme suspicion, especially considering the fact that Grayson is a neo-con operative and also Kentucky’s chief elections official. Grayson is possibly just playing mind games, but if he is somehow able to overturn an 18 point deficit, serious questions will be asked about the integrity of this election.
In Kentucky, the entrenched political class is seriously worried about Rand Paul, the son of Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul, winning the state’s U.S. Senate seat. Paul is ahead of his contender, Secretary of State Trey Grayson, in the polls.
The Public Policy Polling survey conducted May 15-16 shows Mr. Paul leading Mr. Grayson by 52 percent to 34 percent with three other candidates splitting 7 percent and 7 percent undecided.
Grayson, who is the neocon favorite and Kentucky’s chief elections official, said Paul is overconfident and could be disappointed when votes are counted Tuesday evening, according to the Associated Press on May 17. Grayson is confident he will win even with Paul’s substantial lead.
In March, Infowars.com reported on the possibility of vote rigging in Kentucky. The Paul campaign complained about Grayson’s conflict of interest as the state’s top election official but the Kentucky Executive Branch Ethics Commission did not consider it important.
Kentucky has a history of vote rigging. On March 25, the Associated Press reported on a jury in Frankfort Kentucky convicting a former judge and seven others of scheming to buy votes for several local offices in an eastern Kentucky county. The federal indictment charged that the defendants in the case were political bosses who used their powerful positions to head up the effort to buy votes.
Grayson has also attempted to characterize Paul as “a grandstander” more concerned about the national stage than local politics in Kentucky. Grayson has appealed to establishment Republicans. “I’m not running to be the candidate of the tea party,” Grayson said. “I’m running to be the candidate of this Republican Party of Kentucky.”

The Tea Party movement was instrumental in unseating three term Utah Republican senator Bob Bennett. In a state that usually sees between 25,000 and 35,000 people turn out for state caucuses, this year saw 75,000 people participate. Bennett had received endorsements by the National Rifle Association and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Bennett’s loss was chalked up to his support of the Wall Street bailout, co-sponsoring a bipartisan bill mandating health insurance coverage and for aggressively pursuing earmarks.
Considering Rand Paul’s significant lead in the polls, if Grayson wins the primary later today it will undoubtedly be a clear case of vote rigging. Establishment Republicans are desperate to remain in power and derail candidates inspired by or aligned with the Tea Party movement.
The corporate media and the corrupt political class in Washington have attempted to portray the Tea Party as a marginalized gaggle of racist rednecks. As the pending election victory of Rand Paul reveals, this crass propaganda has not worked and millions of Americans are posed to change the political landscape not only in Washington, but in state capitols across the country.
