tenpoundsofcheese: Peter von Nostrand: Anyone braver than me want to head over to Ann Coulter's site and see if she's calling for this lady's prosecution?why wouldn't you prosecute this person?
b2theory: Romney is President now... Right?
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: To be fair, she actually voted 5 times, but only 3 of them counted.
Somacandra: Can't believe I'm responding to a login called OvenFreshJew
OvenFreshJew: Because acknowledging the fact that Obama received 93% of the black vote in 2012 makes a person racist?
lordjupiter: Plus, how would voter ID have prevented this woman from voting absentee? That's where the alleged fraud was committed. She didn't impersonate anyone at the polls. And who says voter ID's can't be faked?
Why Would I Read the Article: Look, I read Fark. We all know that if there's any voter fraud going on, it's ALL being done by republicans and evil diebold machines. Any other story doesn't fit that narrative, so please kindly remove this one from the interwebz.
Mrtraveler01: If you provide the ID's free of charge, there would be no controversy. But obviously the GOP is against that for some reason.
Kell Hound: For the benefit of those like tenpoundsofcheese, a little history...Southern Democrats (who were the ones who denounced Brown) are now Republicans. The two parties started switching sides during the Great Depression. Know the expression 'Dixiecrat'? They left and went GOP because of things like Brown. The rest left when the Civil Rights Act became law. Republicans prior to accepting these racist nutjobs were actually what they now claim to be (but aren't); fiscally conservative and not terribly concerned with social issues. They mutated into today's craven, callow party when they adopted the Southern Strategy in the wake of Goldwater's crushing defeat by Johnson in 1964. All of this is why the tired lines about political affiliations during this time (MLK was a Republican! Democrats are racist!) are not true anymore. It's also why today's GOP has absolutely no business invoking the name of Abraham Lincoln as an inspiration, considering that he was *extremely* big government focused and actually did some social engineering.If you buy all of this warped pseudo-history that is being peddled, you either don't know the history or are trying to put one over on your opposition. Stop farking with history. Only losers do that.
tenpoundsofcheese: rufus-t-firefly: tenpoundsofcheese:FTA: She appears to have used her position as a poll worker to cover her tracks.And she did a bad job at the whole track covering part.And yet, even without a voter ID system she's being investigated. It's almost as if the current laws work.How did the current system work if she voted 6 times?
Onkel Buck: I keep being told voter fraud doesnt happen. Its the voter suppression we are supposed to worry about./Showing ID would fix both but thats too hard
Vegan Meat Popsicle: "I'm outraged, and every voter, regardless of their political affiliation, should be outraged,"Twenty people are being investigated for committing crimes that appear to have had no practical impact on anything and they will, presumably, be charged and tried if sufficient evidence is found to warrant arrests.What exactly am I being outraged about, again? That the system appears to be working as intended and some people who may have committed crimes may have gotten caught?/ oh... right.... Fox News... everything is an outrage
DamnYankees: Ok? Charge her with whatever that crime is and give her the appropriate punishment. Do we need Fox News articles for every crime?
