Listening to Ken Blackwell on this morning’s Laura Ingraham show…
“Voter fraud is the worst crime against democracy” Blackwell says. “We owe it to our citizens and the integrity of our citizens … to make sure we are rooting out voter fraud. You don’t do that by letting the fox guard the hen house.”
It is really, really, really unbelievable that Ken fucking Blackwell – the guy who supressed tens of thousands of voters in Ohio’s 2004 elections – has the balls to go out there and talk about election fraud.
For the record Ken, voter supression is much, much worse than voter fraud.
While it certainly may be possible to steal one or two votes by turning in a false voter registration card- voter supression can disenfranchise thousands of people at a time and cause people to lose faith in the fairness of our election system.
But I guess if you are looking for an election fraud expert to appear on your show, Ken Blackwell is a good choice. This guy wrote the fucking book on stealing elections.
Just check out his long résumé…
