"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

The threat of voter fraud!

Remember how dire were the predictions of voter fraud? Remember how ACORN (surrogate for the devil) was registering Mickey Mouse and Superman?
The biggest problem our elections face today is absentee voting, Fund said. Absentee ballots are extremely prone to fraud and make the actual election into a hectic month-long process. It is laughable, Fund said, that some concerned citizens will raise a ruckus over the difficulties with voting machines but trust the United States Postal Service implicitly. Besides, early voting doesn't even raise turnout.
Wow, multiple points of FAIL here. But the most egregious one is the underlying implication that voter fraud is rampant. Well guess what. That's a big FAIL too! In a report from the Ohio special prosecutor who was responding to the wingnut Right's claim of "massive" voter fraud, he found the following
“Ultimately,” Special Prosecutor Michael O’Neill wrote in a report, “the investigators discovered ‘get-out-the-vote’ practices, sponsored by community organizations, which took full advantage of this unique absentee-voting period, but no evidence these practices violated Ohio law.”
Can we please stop listening to the GOP turds now???
