"Serious" Voter Fraud Uncovered in Ohio

At Least 1,000 Fraudulent Registrations So Far; Prosecutor: "This looks like the politics of Mayor Daley in the '50s and '60s"

AS (no, not that AS; a different AS-- duh) sends these glad tidings along:

More than 1,000 voter registration forms and absentee ballot requests may be fraudulent in Lake and Summit counties, where investigations of irregularities are broadening.

Lake County Sheriff Daniel Dunlap said Thursday that he will investigate an attempt to register a dead person and other possibly fraudulent documents that were submitted to the Lake County Board of Elections.

Dunlap also said he has notified the FBI and the Ohio secretary of state.

...

"We've seen voter fraud before, but never on this level," Coulson said Thursday. "I grew up in Chicago and this looks like the politics of Mayor Daley in the '50s and '60s."

Lake election and law enforcement officials said their investigation is centered on absentee registration attempts by the nonpartisan NAACP's National Voter Fund and an anti-Bush, nonprofit group called Americans Coming Together, or ACT Ohio.

"Nonpartisan" NAACP. Okay.

The National Voter Fund could not be reached Wednesday or Thursday at its Washington, D.C., offices.

I'm sure they just forgot to answer the phones.

...

Several registration applications submitted by campaign volunteers for a candidate are also being scrutinized, Lake elections board Director Jan Clair said.

None of the officials would identify the candidate, however.

Dunlap said the probe will include visits from detectives to addresses of the voters in question.

In one other instance, an elderly nursing home resident who usually signs with an "X" appeared to have a firm, cursive signature when she registered.

"We are going to have to see who's alive and who's well," Dunlap said.

"We're going to have to burn up some shoe leather."

They're determined to win by any means necessary. Remember that when you sit back and say, "You know, I don't really need to vote. Let's face it, a couple of votes here or there won't make a difference."

They will make a difference, if only to offset the phantom voting of the unhinged left.

Another AS Tip Update: Dick Cheney calls John Thurston Kerry a weak opponent against terrorism.

I don't know why Cheney has to say over-the-top things like that. We all know that John Thurston Kerry and the DNC are allowed to argue that Kerry will be stronger against terrorism against Bush, but it's recklessly politicizing national security for Cheney to say the opposite.
