I know voter fraud does not exist. Many of my friends who are Democrats, or lean in that direction, tell me there is no such thing. My US Attorney General assures me there is no such thing—and fights efforts to protect against it. The ACLU, which I help fund, tells me the same thing.
However, from time to time someone comes along and shows how it can be done.
The thing I take comfort from is that no one I know would engage in such a terrible and undemocratic thing. It just doesn't happen here, in this great nation. Well, except for Cook County. You heard that Cook County sold all their old voting machines to Moscow and Richard Daley won the next election for mayor in the Russian Capital? Sure enough.
The real reason there is not rampant fraud is there are poll watchers, which are not easy to come by.
This opposition to showing some form of identification (someone told me that a utility bill will do in our fair Commonwealth) seems to be strange in the "reality based community", given that it not only can happen, but may even happen in some places—but not here, for sure.
Here is the reality. If the police stop patrolling the Lowell Connector, speeds along the Connector will creep up. Sure as God made little green apples.
