I don't agree with your comment that there is little voter fraud in the U.S. You are talking about the wrong kind of voter fraud. The fraud we have experienced, at least in the last two major elections, was where the votes were changed at the main computers by someone who electronically manipulated the votes. It was really easy - just hit a few buttons and the wrong person is voted in. I have read several articles on this subject, one written by the person who did the manipulating. You should do some further investigation. The Free Press is one of the reporting entities.

Barbara #3 you are misunderstanding what Brad means when he says "Voter Fraud" ... he means "fraud perpetrated by voters" ... when you talk about votes being "changed at the main computers by someone who electronically manipulated the votes", that's one of the things we mean by "Election Fraud".
As for your suggestion that Brad should do more investigating, LOL! Clearly you aren't a regular reader!

We make a distinction between Voter Fraud and Election Fraud.
Voter Fraud = Fraud committed by an individual person such as voting more than once or voting in a district where you are not a resident. (Rove)
Election Fraud = Manipulation of the votes through many means such as vote switching by the tabulators, destroying votes without counting them, not providing sufficient machines for people to vote on, registering voters then throwing away the registrations of a particular party, intimidating voters to turn them away, etc. etc. (All of which happened in the last 2 presidential races. Diebold, Ken Blackwell, Kathleen Harris, States of Florida, Ohio, New Mexico etc. etc.)

Thanks for covering this. In most other blogs, people are missing the point of this whole story.
The United States elections depend on the principle of "one person one vote." Voting sends representatives to Congress who are supposed to represent what the local residents want.
KR lives his days in DC, so he should be voting for someone to represent his interests as a resident of DC.

Hopefully Barbra will become a regular visitor and we can all enlighten her, or she can bring new ideas here.
Hopefully she doesn't take your parting comment wrong.

Rest of my post...
Remember, folks, DC doesn't have voting representation in the US Congress. Texas' open "intent" laws are an invitation for the disenfranchised to exercise their constitutional right to be represented. And add some blue to the Texas rolls....
Tom DeLay is a representative of Texas. One less fraudulent voter in Texas = one less vote for DeLay.
And remember, people in Cincinnati were turned away from voting (or had their ballots canceled) because they were in the wrong city precinct. Unlike KR, they were not in the wrong state.

We got this recently on Rove and Plame that Bush will pardon them all if convicted. Praps Rove moved to texas virtually to max up the chance of pardon.

I've seen claims that a number of Republicans lost elections because of dead voters and such.
Not that I trust anything the righwingers throw into the fan.

If all this goes well it may be the only way the Repugs can win the next one.

If Karl Rove gets away with it, he could be setting up a huge precident for other D.C. disenfranchised voters.
I can see it now, a mass emigration, in voting only, of D.C. residents to Texas. Since D.C. voters are mostly Democrats, this could tip the political majority in Texas back to the Democrats.
Thanks Karl Rove, for being such a dishonest butthead. Keep up the lies and smear campaigns that everyone now finds unbelievable. Keep marching the Republican Party lemmings lockstep over the cliff and into the sea of unpopularity... or to jail

Karl Rove has stepped in the shit
Lawyer explores legal options after getting fired by the Texas Secretary of State, for discussing Karl Rove's illegal voting behavior.
"What was Reyes' alleged violation? She had answered a reporter's questions about whether rental property Rove owns in Kerr County, Texas, qualifies him to register to vote in that county.
Reyes says she didn't know the person asking questions was a reporter and she didn't know that the reporter was asking about Rove. In a correction published on Sept. 10, The Washington Post acknowledged that the reporter never asked about Rove by name. But Gabe Escobar, the newspaper's city editor, says the reporter did identify herself to Reyes.
But after Rove called Texas Secretary of State Roger Williams, Reyes was terminated.
Williams, a Gov. Rick Perry appointee who has served as secretary of state since January, confirms (that Rove called him after The Washington Post published the article.
"He and I are friends," Williams says of Rove.
He also broke the law, Mr. Williams. What the hell are you going to do about it? Obstruct the law?!??? Looks like its time for a JURY!!!!!

This is exactly what I was fuming about last week..not so much the voting but making a call to Williams and getting someone fired for stating a policy. How rotten is that?
Williams is a multi-thousand contributor and Rove has his personal phone number, Williams had stated that. Rove was "displeased" that Reyes had spoken with a reporter.
I e-mailed everyone I could think of hopefully someone with clout will follow up. Remember Nuke kept saying, Oh Rove lives there. Sure and no one ever remembers seeing him or his wife.
Hey, laws are for every one.
