The Real Voter Fraud

November 14, 2009

The G.O.P. has had its panties in a bunch for so long now because A.C.O.R.N. had someone turn in a voter registration application with the name Mickey Mouse. I wonder how much of a stink Fox News will raise over real voter fraud?

Interesting that the G.O.P. of Pennsylvania are really the ones ripping off the taxpayers. Not really interesting. More typical, really. G.O.P. voter fraud is rampant across the country.

A former House speaker, an ex-lawmaker and eight aides Thursday became the latest — and the first Republicans — to be charged in a three-year-old investigation into the diversion of public resources and employees to legislative campaigns.

Attorney General Tom Corbett said that individuals within the House GOP caucus spent millions of taxpayer dollars on computer technology to gain an upper hand in campaigns, and that investigators can prove that some high-ranking officials and their employees tried to cover up their part.

The charges of theft, conspiracy, conflict of interest and obstruction of justice, and an accompanying 188-page grand jury report, were released Thursday, and the defendants were scheduled to turn themselves in today at a Dauphin County district judge’s office.

By the way, PA’s Attorney General Tom Corbett is a Republican.
