Voter Fraud

I’ve sort of wanted to blog about this for some time but, as Joe noticed, things are so slow news-wise that it seems like as good a political topic as any.

Every few weeks since November 2000 a story like this makes its way into mainstream media coverage parroting completely unsupported allegations of “voter disenfranchisement” while virtually ignoring stories such as this involving the attempted murder convictions of democratic officials seeking to kill a witness to voter fraud.

"In the state of Ohio, where they had fewer voting booths and long lines in minority neighborhoods and no lines and many voting booths in white neighborhoods, that the balance is not what it should have been." –Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi

In fact, while Nancy Pelosi wails on about our inevitable return to Jim Crow, many stories such as the following get little or no national coverage.

1.) Paid democratic operatives who also happen to be Children of Democratic house members (not state) convicted of slashing the tires of Republican vehicles.
2.) Democratic Mayor of Milwaukee demanded release of far more ballots in 2004 than there are eligible voters and, predictably, there are 7000 more votes cast than the total eligible voting population of Milwaukee. (>100% turnout = Fraud; Milwaukee is heavily Democratic; Kerry only won Wisconsin by 11,000 votes)
3.)Yesterday Wisconsin Republicans released evidence that 9 individuals from Milwaukee voted several times in different cites.

And thats just Wisconsin who's news I still closely follow.

While I’m sure that we’ll continue to see news stories repeating vague charges of Ohio conspiracy well into 2008, like Florida, it’s clear that the lack of media coverage Democratic voter fraud has received continues to embolden activists to push ever farther beyond what is legal. Yes I tirelessly beat the drum of media bias for just about everything, but this is an example where it is having a tangible effect on the democratic process.
