Republican voter fraud doesn't count. The only voter fraud that counts is made up from whole cloth by Trump and his ilk.

This country is their Reality TV show, so they can do whatever they want with it.

It's as if the GOP are a bunch of liars, crooks, pedophiles, and incels.

Oh, and traitorous dirtbags.

#4 Innocent until proven guilty, but this is a story worth following:

Woman Arrested for Voter Fraud Scheme

An Iowa woman was arrested today in Sioux City for her role in an alleged voter fraud scheme during the Iowa 2020 primary and general elections.

Kim Phuong Taylor, 49, of Sioux City, made her initial court appearance today. According to court documents, Taylor allegedly perpetrated a scheme to generate votes in the primary election in June 2020, when her husband was an unsuccessful candidate for Iowa's 4th U.S. Congressional District, and subsequently in the 2020 general election, when her husband was a successful candidate for Woodbury County Supervisor. Taylor allegedly submitted or caused others to submit dozens of voter registrations, absentee ballot request forms, and absentee ballots containing false information. For example, although these documents required the signer to affirm that he or she was the person named in them, Taylor signed them for voters without their permission and told others that they could sign on behalf of relatives who were not present.

Taylor is charged by indictment with 26 counts of providing false information in registering and voting, three counts of fraudulent registration, and 23 counts of fraudulent voting. If convicted, she faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison for each count.

Mke no mistake this creep wasn't acting alone. Trump and his MAGA fans really believed their action were justified because....they were and still aere baT S**T CRAZY. those mentally challenged imbeciles really did believe and still stupidly do believe that fre and fair elections that deprive their demented hero of a second term are not valid which justifies their own cheating. Trumpers are, by definition, despicable crazies who should all be honest and renounce their citizenship. They belong to Putin and should be delivered to Russia where they obviously belong.

Per Texas law, 12 counts means 60 years.

Oh wait, he's a White Republican. Maybe some community service?

It's always the same. Republicans claim Dems are doing something Republicans are actually doing.

Freud would have a field day analyzing their projection BS.

It's funny how all these right leaning folks that post here tell us about this wide spread voter fraud - and every time an article goes up of actual cases it is about right wing folks committing voter fraud. They never seem to post any thing about Democrats committing voter fraud. Is that because Democrats are somehow that much smarter they don't get caught or they commit so much less of it? The stuff I see is where a felon has served their time is told they have the right to vote when they don't and casts a provisional ballot or something silly like that. Something where the person is actually NOT trying to commit a fraud. All the organized stuff is coming from the GOP.

BUT this is proof the system is working... They are getting caught. They are getting charged. The problem is they are mostly getting slaps on the wrist.

The right-wing has to prove there's voter fraud the only way they can - by committing it. They just as stupidly believe the system won't catch them.

Per Texas law ...

WTF does Texas law have to do with a case in New York Federal Court? While you're at it, tell us about stacked vs. consecutive sentencing.
