Voter Fraud In Massachusetts Is Worse Than Republicans Feared!
Yes, here it is. A voter fraud story out of Massachusetts. Those big-city liberal Democratic political machines and their ACORN-like allies are trying to subvert our democracy again. This is exactly why every state should have a photo ID requirement for voters.
Or maybe not. Let us count the reasons:
- The dateline on this story is East Longmeadow, a quiet town of 16,000 on the Connecticut approximately 90 miles away from the baleful influence of Boston.
- The investigation concerns alleged voter registration fraud, not voter fraud.
- The alleged fraud was detected by the state’s existing procedures—in this case, routinely mailing a letter to the home address of any voter from whom an absentee ballot request has been received.
- The primary suspect in the case is (oh dear) a Republican: “The criminal investigation is focusing on Republican candidate Enrique John Villamaino III, an East Longmeadow selectman who narrowly lost a primary bid for the same legislative seat in 2010…. A friend of Villamaino’s who works in the East Longmeadow town clerk’s office is suspected of having changed the registrations in the office computers after work hours….”
So to recap: A Republican office-holder is alleged to have conspired with a town employee to change voter registrations; and the (alleged) conspiracy was uncovered weeks before any election was held.
That’s just the kind of voter fraud the new photo ID laws are designed…well…not to catch.
