The “Voter Fraud” Fraud (Updated) 1

Terry Gross investigated the “voter fraud” fraud in three segments on Wednesday’s show.

Check it out here.

Addendum, 10/13/08:

Josh Marshall sums it up:

Vote registration fraud is a limited and relatively minor problem in the US today. But it is principally an administrative and efficiency issue. It is has little or nothing to do with people casting illegitimate votes to affect an actual election. That’s the key. What you’re hearing right now from Fox News, the New York Post, John Fund and the rest of the right-wing bamboozlement chorus is a just another effort to exploit, confuse and lie in an effort to put more severe restrictions on legitimate voting and lay the groundwork to steal elections.

    CBS News is hardly a friend of the Republicans or McCain. Yet on Friday, October 10, they had a report on suspected fraud involving ACORN. The report included:

    “Joseph Borges, the registrar of voters in Bridgeport, Conn., says his office has been overwhelmed by bogus forms filled out with thousands of fake and duplicate names – two boxes alone packed with non-existent addresses – all submitted by ACORN.”


    “Whether simple error or outright fraud, the charges surrounding ACORN are already raising doubts about the integrity of the upcoming election in key parts of the country.”

    The story can be found on the CBS News web site.

    In an interview I heard on XM this morning, one individuals said he had signed 73 different voter registration cards for an ACORN operative.

    I dare say if ACORN were a conservative or Republican organization registering voters who most likely favored McCain, you would have a different opinion of this activity. It doesn’t matter who does it or which end of the process it is – fraud is still fraud.
