If you bother to check up on that 'story', the official county returns show that Obama got 50.7% of the vote, Romney 47. something (from memory), so the whole thing was simply a wingnut fabrication. Hence, I take any wingnut claims with a container of salt.

edit - here's that result - http://www.co.wood.oh.us/boe/Electio...Unofficial.htm
Apparently they don't know the difference between registered voters and actual votes.

All irrelevant anyway - why would the Ds need voter fraud when Texas will soon be as solid blue as California?

Exactly. Vote with your feet.

Want to see real voter fraud btw?

Oh wait I think I just saw a busload of Somali's go by.
My, my.

But only one of us is claiming "we don't cheat."

In my best Velo tactic impersonation... "hard to believe anything coming out of that left wing HuffPo..."

Like I said. Nothing to see here.

Sorry, where did I ever say we don't cheat? What I said was - and what is true, despite what cons would like to believe - is that voter fraud is not and never has been a problem. It's a right-wing bogeyman that pops up every time they lose and to use as a justification for the introduction of voter suppression laws like photo ID's.

Nope, just a good story. Cool tank, I used to draw those in my notebook during class.
