In that post, I mocked McCain for saying this:
[ACORN] is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history ... maybe destroying the fabric of democracy.Prophetic words indeed!
Of course, McCain wasn't the only jackass pushing the fear of voter fraud. It was all over the place. Crazy idiots everywhere were up in arms about ACORN. Because they just couldn't idly sit by and let voter registration destroy our country!
They were extra-upset in Ohio, where McCain's state campaign chairman subpoenaed people who did the unthinkable act of registering to vote on the same day that they actually voted! Here's what he had to say:
“If the secretary of state is listening and she has no evidence of voter fraud in Hamilton County, I'm telling you there is,” Deters said during a Monday press conference.This Deters dude subpoenaed information on about 700 people. No doubt all guilty of horrible ACORN fraud!
Deters said about 40 percent of those registration forms either lacked a proper address or could not be verified in the state’s database.
“During that five-day window, it was a free-for-all,” Deters said.
So, how'd that all turn out?
A report Tuesday by a special prosecutor appointed to the investigation found that only one voter committed fraud.Can the fabric of democracy survive? I sincerely doubt it!
A Connecticut man in town visiting his sister cast a ballot on Oct. 4 but later told officials what he had done.
He pleaded guilty Dec. 29 to attempted false voter registration and was sentenced to one year of probation, a $1,000 fine and 250 hours of community service.
