“Voter fraud” fraud

Those 950 dead people voting in South Carolina? The first six names checked out included zero incidents of fraud.

The Republican Attorney General of South Carolina has a super-secret list of 950 dead people who supposedly voted there. Six of those names were actually turned over to the elections commission. The score: zero for six. No evidence whatever of any kind of fraud.

I only wish the con artists who have been using “voter fraud” as an excuse for preventing Democrats from voting, and their accomplices and useful idiots in the Red Blogosphere, were capable of shame.

One thought on ““Voter fraud” fraud”

  1. I’ll tell you what’s even worse.

    I’m alive, and I DIDN’T vote there. In fact, I’ve NEVER voted there.

    How’s that for turning the tables on those scoundrels?
