    Re: How the GOP used Twitter to stretch laws

    If dems can blow hard enough to find some tiny spark behind the thin wisp of smoke here, they should go ahead and go for it. But methinks there's only the barest whiff of smoke in the air, let alone a full blown conflagration. Oh, and as others mentioned, none of this twitter nonsense is "voter fraud". Good luck trying to get all the mileage you can out of it without looking like a petty partisan hack in the process.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    my guess is that both sides cheat their asses off equally.

    Agreed. I think the only thing they agree on is to make as many rules to disenfranchise third party candidates and keep their duopoly going at all costs.

    It appears that the ability to effectively cheat is a prerequisite for anyone who takes an oath of office in DC.

    We try to make unlimited anonymous campaign funding acceptable via stipulations like "well they dont directly coordinate" but never seem to stop and ask whether unlimited anonymous donations should exist at all.

    You saying something factually incorrect somehow shows that? How?



    Possibly to hide evidence. Possibly because they weren't using them any longer. Possibly because it was a rogue individual realizing he was getting attention. Who knows? Does it look shady? Absolutely! Does it "prove guilt"? No more than a lot of the things coming out in the Bergdahl case. Deleting the twitter accounts doesn't change that all we really have as far as hard evidence right now is the reports of anonymous source, that's it. I've been pretty consistent on this forum in the vast majority of these kind of "stories" with a stance of "I'll make a decision once we actually have some more concrete evidence, rather than making a knee jerk reaction". That's generally been my take, from mass murders to stupid backwards B headed ladies to various scandals...its the same here. There's very little concrete to go off of at the moment.
    Agreed couldn't have said it better myself. So, it's this VS dead people and people voting multiple times for the other side. Also you have the fake allegations of the Libertarians accusing the Republicans of rigging the election in 2012. We'll see which one comes out as real. Despite the fact that neither political party admits that voter fraud exists except on the other side. Who will be the first to step up?
    There's no greater irony than a Trump supporter pointing out hypocrisy; Unless it's Trump himself.

    Wait, people voting multiple times "for the other side?" What, you don't think people vote more than once for Republicans?

    :raises eyebrow: I thought campaigns selectively publicized internal polling data all the time?

    But expensive internal polling data from a PAC is now essentially donating that expense to the campaign directly, if they just send it to them.
