"It's my belief that they were trying to get cases of Democrats doing voter fraud. And that just wasn't the case"

More like, I didn't think anyone would act on my grandstanding, or if they did it wouldn't be provable.

$25,000?  I thought he was offering $1 million?  Also, doesn't he still owe the Pennsylvania Lt. Governor some money?

I'm just surprised they're paying out at all, instead of weaseling out of it somehow.

/And yes, they still owe him a shiatload of gift cards

Split equally between Sheetz and Wawa.

Which, Fetterman and his wife are offering a date night at either of those.

That's the most PA thing I've heard today.

And the alt-right media will spin this as "fraud proved". Neglecting the details. The right will never hear the truth.

Holy shiat, the newspaper totally undermined the legitimacy of the poll worker catching the fraud.

FTA:payout went to a progressive poll worker in Pennsylvania whose tip led to a single conviction of illegal voting by a registered Republican."

So much for the rule of law. The poll worker is progreive, so the fraud claim is now coloured by the poll worker's politics. Are we supposed to think they refrained from turning in progressive fraudsters? Are we supposed to think that a Republican poll worker would have allowed the fraud to go unchallenged?

Can an American newspaper portray law as anything other than the emotional labour of a political party affiliation?

Came here to say this. I thought he wasn't paying anything because they only found Republicans in PA and Fetterman slapped him across the face with it.

It's not a twist of irony if it's completely expected.
 
2021-10-21 12:56:26 PM  
Y'all know Dan Patrick will use this to say that voter fraud definitely occurred in 2020, right?

He offered a million total, 25G at a time.

And Fetterman absolutely deserves his gift cards. Especially because he threw a "P.S. The Cowboys suck" into one message, which is also very PA.

I thought he died of covid or was actually mauled by a bear. Thanks a lot for getting my hopes up, subby.

Weaseling out is what they normally do. That's what Hannity did with the waterboarding thing.

Also, hahahaha!

Maybe...they are saying that is credible because it is not by a democrat..?

Could it be both please? I would like it to be both (although I might feel sorry for the bear).

"It's my belief that they were trying to get cases of Democrats doing voter fraud."

Yep, these right-wing loons don't actually care about election integrity. They're abusing their positions of power to harass Democratic voters and rile up right-wing voters in, as always, bad faith.

They reject any truth they accidentally encounter anyway.

Patrick probably used some of that sweet PPP money he got last year.

"Cowboys suck" is possibly the only PA statewide sports sentiment there is.

The last case of voter fraud in Oregon was a vote counter filling in a ballot that someone didn't complete. In from of cameras and other vote counters.

Why yes, she was a Republican.

No, it is from all the surgery carbs they stuff in their mouth out of sexual frustration.  You know Republicans abhor anything that brings enjoyment, satisfaction, pleasure or fun.

He says it anyway, along with all of the show hosts on the AM talk radio station he owns.

Texas Lt Gov Dan Patrick would have to reveal his real name on his Baltimore birth certificate, and the name of his tailor carpet bag maker.

Because White Supremacists have nothing else to be proud of than that their forebears came from Europe. When that is your only point of personal pride, it means you are a failure at everything else.
