Default Feds Arrest 56-Year-Old Nevada Woman For Voting......Twice

http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2012...ion-trying-vo/



Here's a confirmed case of voter fraud in a closely contested swing state.

She's a registered Republican.

I guess Romney's last minute GOTV push in swing states is getting desperate.

I find it hilarious that anyone would actually go out and do this. You have basically nothing to gain (unless your one or two extra votes actually decide the election the chance of which is miniscule) and a whole lot to lose.

Good to see that proper security is catching some of these alleged criminals. Did she have to show a photo ID? Nevada law says it's just a signature comparison, maybe a photo ID check could have stopped this alleged crime.

That's just cruel, she was dressed for work.

The real fraud is on the voting populace.

That woman will be in more trouble than the five fuck heads that voted for the moron Bush who wreaked the country in one of America's greatest disasters.

Yet another reason why Obama needs to be re-elected.

Did you read the fucking article? It was at two different places. IDs would not have stopped her at all. They used a database, which is far better than the crap Republican politicians were trying to impose.

heheh (yeah, yeah, be prepared and everything)

FBI: Hey we got a call from the local cops to bring someone in for voter fraud. She's already cuffed and everything.
FBI guy: Hmm, better get some body armor.

Possible SC nominations are my main reason for voting for Obama. Citizens United needs to be overturned. I'll believe corporations are people when Texas executes one.

I'm so confused. I have been told all along that in-person voter fraud can't be detected without ID laws.

How did she get registered for multiple different precincts? Someone did not check her address and/or the data base implementation is flawed

Anyone else find it mildly ironic that "tea party" republicans want to disenfranchise voters but are named after a group of patriots who revolted due to a lack of representation?

Perp walk. Done intentionally to embarass and discourage others.

Ironically I expect this lady to get a medal from the GOP for finally proving that there is retail level vote fraud (done by them, but Fox News can easily relabel her).

Who did she cast those votes for? Maybe in a Colin Powell moment she was voting for Obama?

The article doesn't say how the authorities knew it was the same person who tried to vote twice. What if someone had impersonated her?
