The Daily Caller
Every vote counts. And if you’re a Democrat, that goes double. Literally. TheDC’s Neil Munro reports:
“Top Democrats are aggressively pushing the claim that Republicans’ worries about voter fraud are an insincere excuse to suppress voting by African-Americans and Hispanics. But former Democratic Rep. Artur Davis told The Daily Caller that anti-fraud measures are needed to protect African-Americans from corrupt political bosses — many of them African-Americans themselves — who run Democratic Party machines in the South… ‘What I have seen in my state, in my region, is the the most aggressive practitioners of voter-fraud are local machines who are tied lock, stock and barrel to the special interests in their communities — the landfills, the casino operators — and they’re cooking the [ballot] boxes on election day, they’re manufacturing absentee ballots, they’re voting [in the names of] people named Donald Duck, because they want to control politics and thwart progress,’ he told TheDC. ‘People who are progressives have no business defending those individuals.’”
Of course, that’s assuming you believe “progressive” means anything other than “the word ‘liberal’ doesn’t poll well these days, so I’m calling myself this instead.” But still, it’s still nice to hear a Democrat admit it, even if it isn’t news to anybody who’s been paying attention since, oh, 1960.
