    4 Indiana Dems charged with election fraud in 2008

    I thought this was interesting since we just argued on this board recently about voter ID cards and election fraud.


    4 Indiana Dems charged with election fraud in 2008

    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.

    The sad thing is, there will be no outrage. This story will be mentioned and it will go away. Unfortunate.

    Which votes in the election were fraudulently cast?

    And you think that voter ID laws would have prevented this somehow?

    How would that work?
    I may be wrong.

    I am not so sure that this is a voter ID thing as mentioned by Grim. Don't they just get these signatures in the street?

    The people who collected the signatures are accused of forgery, afaict.

    If people had to show ID to vote, no impact.
    Having to show ID to sign petition. the alleged culprits would have had to forge a checkmark that they saw the ID and that it matched.

    afaict
    imho
    ymmv

    This case has nothing to do with Voter IDs.

    First of all, this has nothing to do with voter IDs. Second of all, are we to believe that being charged with something means automatically guilty now?
