Voter Fraud is on the Rise…….Among Republican Politicians at Least
Republicans are running around like chicken little, and apparently, “the ballots are falling! the ballets are falling!” You would think there were more stolen elections than just the 2000 election if you listened to Republicans. But apparently, it’s not for lack of trying, considering an Arizona Republican stands accused of voter fraud.
As has been pointed out, there are more people who claimed to have spotted aliens last year than there are people who’ve been convicted of voter fraud, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans from mounting efforts to combat nonexistent voter fraud. That’s because it’s all about suppressing the minority vote, and not about stopping voter fraud. Funny thing is, when voter fraud does occur, it often occurs at the hands of , you guessed it, Republicans.
Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White (R-IN) was convicted of it earlier this year, and now, a candidate for Pinal County Supervisor in Arizona has dropped out because of accusations of voter fraud.
The Arizona Republic reports:
A Pinal County supervisor candidate has withdrawn from the race in the wake of voter-fraud allegations involving a former companion who, records show, has continued to vote by absentee ballot in the five years since her death.
John Enright, 66, had been seeking the Republican nomination for county supervisor of District 5, an area that includes Apache Junction and Gold Canyon…
His statement made no mention of the scandal unleashed in an anonymous, undated letter sent several weeks ago to the Pinal County Recorder’s Office. As recently as this year, the letter alleged, someone had been filling out and mailing in absentee ballots addressed to a woman who died on Feb. 3, 2007. The woman, Sheila Nassar, and Enright lived together at the time of her death.
The case being made of course is that Enright allegedly voted on behalf of his dead companion. That’s voter fraud alright. If that’s true, Enright is guilty of a felony. But it just goes to show that if Republicans want to stop voter fraud, then they should begin by policing themselves.
