Another name on the Dishonor Roll of Republicans convicted of election/voter fraud—including California party op Mark Jacoby, phone-jammer Allan Raymond, who helped “elect” New Hampshire’s John Sununu to the Senate, and the eight who went down for election-stealing in Clay County, Kentucky.
Since 2000, the GOP would not have held Congressional majorities, or many top state offices (including governor), without election theft, because their “base” is way out on the fringe. They’re so far right they think Obama’s on the left—and yet, despite their actual minority, they could “take back” the White House, just Bush/Cheney did—twice—against the will of the electorate.
So why, oh why, do Democrats refuse to face this issue? We’ve been asking this key question for the last ten years; and we’ll be asking it for years to come, until we know the answers.
Charlie White, Indiana Election Chief, Found Guilty Of Voter Fraud
INDIANAPOLIS — While Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels held off Saturday on appointing a permanent replacement for the state elections chief convicted early that morning of voter fraud, Democrats said they planned to move quickly to wrest control of the politically powerful office from the GOP.
A jury from Hamilton County, just north of Indianapolis, deliberated for 13 hours before convicting Republican Secretary of State Charlie White on six felony charges. Among other things, White was accused of lying about his address on voter registration forms.
Indiana law does not allow felons to hold statewide office, and Daniels quickly appointed White’s chief deputy, Jerry Bonnet, as interim secretary of state. But the governor said he was holding off on naming a permanent replacement because a judge could reduce the charge to a misdemeanor, allowing White to regain the office.
