What are you up to, George?

Even mainstream journalists like Tony Snow are getting into blogging, and makes note of something that the MSM needs to look into:

I got a chance to read John Fund’s provocative, balanced book, “Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy.” Fund documents the growth of vote fraud as a minor industry, and explains how it has poisoned the democratic process. Most damningly, he lays out in detail the sheer backwardness of our balloting systems.

As if on cue, vote-fraud stories have begun to fill papers – and there’s a central thread. The George Soros-financed “Americans Coming Together” has become an absolute fraud machine. Here are some swing-state horror stories from suburban Detroit and Cleveland. Blogger Bill Hobbs has a good round-up (scroll down to read his many entries).

I've been checking out Bill's blog for sometime now and you should too. Today, on the subject of voter fraud, he points out:
As I have collected more and more stories, I've noticed three possible indicators of trends: 1. The biggest examples of voter registration fraud are coming from battleground states such as Florida, Wisconsin and Ohio. 2. Most often, the alleged fraud involves partisan liberal groups such as America Coming Together, New Voter Project, Citizen Action, the Public Interest Research Group and more. 3. Supposedly "non-partisan" voter registration groups that are funded in part by tax-exempt donations, are focusing their efforts primarily on communities and populations that are heavily Democratic in orientation, calling into question whether these groups truly are non-partisan or should be stripped of their tax-exempt status.
Less than a month is left until the election...let's hope that we don't have a repeat of the near stroke inducing BS that went down in 2000.
