Voter Fraud in the 2004 election
This week, an East St. Louis (Illinois) jury convicted 5 people of voter fraud (hat tip Gateway Pundit). I have been following this story every since Gateway Pundit first filed it for a couple of reasons - 1) I grew up in Illinois and 2) I went to college in the St Louis (Missouri) area. What makes this case all the more troubling is that the 5 defendants were members of the East St Louis Democratic Party!!! The defendants were accused of using money, supplied to them by the St. Claire County (Illinois) Democratic Party to buy votes for the Democratic slate of candidates! One of the 5 defendants is next going to trial for the attempted murder of a state witness for the prosecution as well.
Last week, in Milwaukee, 2 more people were charged with voting twice in the ongoing voter fraud case in Wisconsin. More charges are expected as federal prosecutors are investigating more than 200 cases of felons voting (illegal in Wisconsin) and 100 people either voting twice or filing a voter reqistration card using an invalid address!
I find it interesting that these cases are not out of Florida or Ohio, but out of states that went to the Democratic candidate for President. In the one case (Wisconsin) the state was so closely contested, that it is plausible that such fraud could have changed the outcome of the election in that state.
It makes you wonder what motivated for the cries of "voter fraud" in Ohio and Florida. Could it be that certain parties wanted to throw those states in doubt so that if they got caught with their fingers in the fraud cookie jar it would be overlooked by a willing establishment media?????
