Voter Fraud

I've long believed that last year's presidential campaign was fraught with corruption. Whether or not it was enough to help Obama win by such a margin, I don't know. I'd say it had more to do with the fact he was running again John McCain. Anywho, it seems like there is some absentee vote fraud going on in the New Jersey guberitorial race. I doubt it is isolated to just absentee ballots.

John Fund: The state has received a flood of 180,000 absentee ballot requests. On some 3,000 forms the signature doesn't match the one on file with county clerks. Yet citing concerns that voters would be disenfranchised, Democratic Party lawyer Paul Josephson wrote New Jersey's secretary of state asking her "to instruct County Clerks not to deny applications on the basis of signature comparison alone." Mr. Josephson maintained that county clerks "may be overworked and are likely not trained in handwriting analysis" and insisted that voters with suspect applications should be allowed to cast provisional ballots. Those ballots, of course, would then provide a pool of votes that would be subject to litigation in any recount, with the occupant of New Jersey's highest office determined by Florida 2000-style scrutiny of ballot applications.

I live in Mississippi and we are in the process of getting a voter ID law enacted by means of voter initiative. It is ludicrous to think that NJ allows one person to obtain and to submit multiple absentee ballots. It is a license for Acorn-types to stuff the ballots with fraudulent votes.
