Another one bites the dust!
Paul Schurick, the GOP operative convicted of vote suppression in Maryland last week, is not the first Republican to stand convicted, or exposed, for doing what the GOP has long and lividly accused the Democrats of doing. For example, do a search on Ann Coulter + voter fraud (in Florida), or Clay County + voter fraud (Kentucky), or YPM + voter fraud (California). Just to name a few.
What you’ll find is that the GOP has perpetrated far more voter fraud (as well as election fraud) than ACORN ever did—ACORN having been itself quite innocent of voter fraud; and yet ACORN was eventually destroyed, in part because of that Big Lie.
And that Big Lie still rules, as voter ID legislation has been passed throughout the country—to keep Democrats from voting, in the name of “clean elections.”
Who’s Really Committing Voter Fraud? (Video)

The conviction of a Republican operative has thrown the spotlight onto who is really committing voter fraud in the US.
Right-wing news outlets have been claiming for years that liberal groups such as ACORN are behind ‘massive’ voter fraud operations. Despite investigations by the Justice Department only showing a tiny number of proven cases (86) over the past decade, Republican legislators in twelve states have passed legislation, on the basis of supposed fraud, restricting voting.
Paul Schurick, an aide to former Maryland Republican Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., was convicted last week of attempted voter suppression.
