    Felony charges related to election fraud have touched the 2008 race for the highest office in the land.

    Prosecutors in South Bend, Ind., filed charges Monday against four St. Joseph County Democratic officials and deputies as part of a multiple-felony case involving the alleged forging of Democratic presidential primary petitions in the 2008 election, which put then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Indiana ballot.


    The officials are accused of taking part in a scheme to fake signatures and names on the primary petitions needed to run for president. Court papers say the plan was hatched by local Democratic Party officials inside the local party headquarters.
    ......
    Indiana State Police investigators identified a total of 22 petitions that appeared to be faked, yet sailed through the Voter Registration Board as legitimate documents.
    ......
    The case raises the possibility that the president's campaign and that of Clinton’s, could have been legally challenged in Indiana if the alleged forgeries were discovered during the race.
    ......
    Multiple voters, including Indiana's former Democratic Gov. Joe Kernan, told Fox News that their names and signatures were phonies.

    "That's not my signature," Charity Rorie told Fox News as she sat in her kitchen in Mishawaka, Ind.. The mother of four was stunned that her name and signature, and those of her husband, appeared on one of the Obama petitions. She said they "absolutely" were fakes and was troubled that personal details such as their address and birthdays were also included.

    "It was shocking," she said. "Why did they do that, and where did they get it from?"

    "I did not sign for Barack Obama," Democratic voter Robert Hunter told Fox News as he stared at the Obama petition that included his name and purported signature supporting the candidate. While he observed that the scrawl looked "very close" to his real one, it was not.

    No problem acknowledging misdeeds by both sides. That is why we need protections in place such as Voter ID laws. If IDs are provided for free and in neighborhoods, even as one state provides, teams going to homes, no one should oppose this.

    Says who? It's unconstitutional to require a voter to have an ID, but not unconstitutional to require a driver, a purchaser of liquor, or an over 21 club goer to have an I.D.? Something wrong with this picture icon_rolleyes.gif

    Keep throwing the spaghetti against the wall... icon_rolleyes.gif



    It's not spaghetti, it's the Constitution. I know you read it only selectively and are the worst interpreter of it since Antonin Scalia, but there are remedial classes at your local community college. I suggest you take one.
