As a Judge of Elections in So. Philadelphia I find this reprehensible. Also stupid. They know when there's more votes than there are signatures in the book.

Not VOTER fraud; the fraud was in the counting.

That's an important distinction, because once again it's a case where voter ID wouldn't have addressed the actual problem.

It was voter fraud as he voted multiple times himself. But I agree that voter ID wouldn't have stopped this as he was an official and had access to the machines.
