Democratic voter fraud cases become ammo for Virginia GOP

Well-publicized instances of attempted voter fraud by high-profile Democrats in Virginia and Maryland have helped Republican lawmakers make a case for tougher voting requirements.

In Virginia, Patrick Moran, the son of Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Moran, has become the poster child for voter fraud after he was documented on a hidden camera last year coaching an undercover conservative operative on how to forge a utility bill to vote for someone else. At the time, the younger Moran was working on his father’s campaign in Northern Virginia, though he stepped down after the embarrassing incident.

Authorities did not file charges against Moran, but that hasn’t stopped Republicans from frequently alluding to the case this year while pushing for a photo voter identification law.

“The problem is this thing went viral. It was on the front pages of USA Today,” Sen. Dick Black, R-Leesburg, said during debate Friday on a law that requires voters to bring a photo ID to the polls. “The secret is out [on how to commit voter fraud in Virginia].”

    I know only one (1) person who admitted they voted for Muhammad’s Horse. And did so because he is a Muslim. Really.

    Let’s make sure all military votes get counted.
    They always seem to end up getting lost.

    I don’t know if Dick Black is a good guy or not nor whether he was misquoted.

    He should of said “Their” problem and NOT “the” problem.
