…and surprise! it doesn’t all seem to be coming from the GOP!
Case, the First: Patrick Moran, son of 11 term Rep. Jim Moan (D) for the 8th district of Virginia and up until a few days ago head of his re-election campaign, instructing folks on how to commit voter fraud. Moran has demanded an investigation into voter fraud perpetrated by a company called Pinpoint, but maybe he should look closer to home.
Case the Second: North Carolina Democrats were using official vehicles to illegally transport students workers from the North Carolina Jobs Corps to the Swain County Board of Education voting location.
The Hatch Act states federal employees “May not engage in political activity while using a government vehicle.”
Case the Third: Perhaps the most egregious example, so far — Republican registered voters in Florida have been receiving letters from a Seattle postmark that question their eligibility to vote in an attempt to keep them from voting. Even a GOP party leader in Florida received one of these.
Case the Fourth: Perhaps one of the more egregious examples…a Colorado group that was stating they were renting vans to move voters to the polls and would be giving a “$20 incentive” to the people to vote Obama. But hey! that was just a joke! No, really, we weren’t going to commit a federal felony! Now the $20 Voter Incentive Militia is scrubbing themselves from the internet as fast as their wee fingers can fly.
Case the Fifth: Colorado, again… Oops! Showing candidate specific material within a certain distance of a polling place is kinda illegal, University of Colorado!
Case the Sixth: The Obama campaign is illegally accepting overseas donations. But I’m sure it’s just a mistake. Honest!
