The fraud is underway, as reported by the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
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.
Elections officials have said hundreds of absentee ballot applications and dozens of voter registration cards are in question. Lake County Prosecutor Charles Coulson, also involved in the probe, said the problems are more significant than originally thought.
“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.
“Americans Coming Together” is a shadow organization that is basically a surrogate for the Democratic Party.
Our friend Hugh Hewitt ‘s new book is called If It’s Not Close, They Can’t Cheat. Of course, the converse is, if it is close, the Democrats can and will cheat. Let’s hope that Ohio and other critical states aren’t so close that the Dems can achieve victory through fraud, or, almost as bad, tie up the election for months in the courts.
