Actual Voter Fraud ... by Republicans!

Republicans rant about voter fraud and pass laws to keep as many Democratic voters from the polls as they can. The truth is that voter fraud is rarer than UFO sightings or people being struck by lightning

But when voter fraud actually happens, it's often perpetrated by Republican officials. That seems to be the case in a recent example in East Longmeadow, Massachusetts (right down the road from my hometown), where a Republican candidate for local office is accused of changing Democratic voters' registration to Republican, and then forging absentee ballots for those voters cast ballots in the Republican primary.

If Republicans have to cheat at the ballot box, just how good can their ideas for America actually be?

  1. And those are cases of fraud where voter ID would not have helped. Just another republican failure!
