Pesky Canadians Trying To Influence Our Election

From the Daily Beast: The state of Florida launched a huge crackdown on illegally registered voters. After months of search, Florida authorities have  to date caught … one person. An Austrian-born Canadian citizen, Josef Sever, age 52.  See story.

The United States has one of the most dismal records of voter participation and Republicans throughout the country are merrily trying to make it harder to vote.  Gary Trudeau’s Doonesbury featured several panels on those efforts back in July.

    How depressing would it be to be a Republican and know that your best hope of victory is to prevent people from voting???

        hahahaha 🙂 these elections are really exciting. I’m looking forward to what money power can do for a businessman like Mitt. He might surprise a few people.
        I’ve experienced voting frauds in my country first hand. As a campaign manager in recent elections I had to fight the system. Names of residents of villages who had voted all their lives, were now missing from the voters’ list. It happens everywhere.

          I guess you’re right. We just had a mayor in New Jersey indicted for corruption. His defense? It was good corruption, not bad corruption.

            that reminds me of the time I got into an argument with my higher secondary moral science teacher (he was a priest, I studied in a Catholic school). I told him the exact same thing, good corruption is fine and bad corruption is not! obviously, I lost the argument 🙂
