Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

A top leader of the national conservative group Turning Point Action, which has amplified false claims of election fraud by former president Donald Trump and others, resigned Thursday after being accused of forging voter signatures on official paperwork so that he could run for reelection in the Arizona House.

State Rep. Austin Smith (R) - who was senior director at Turning Point Action, the campaign arm of Charlie Kirk's Turning Point USA - was accused by a Democratic activist of submitting petition sheets with rows of voter names, addresses and signatures that "bear a striking resemblance" to Smith's handwriting, according to a complaint. Smith "personally circulated multiple petition sheets bearing what appear to be forged voter signatures," the complaint said.

Smith submitted his resignation to Turning Point Action on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk about it publicly. Smith also publicly ended his reelection campaign.

Why is it always Trump Republicans being caught perpetrating intentional election and voter fraud? This guy has been steadily beating the drum of election fraud and spreading false information regarding election security and voting issues.

In cases like this, I feel that charges involving intentional voter/election fraud should carry a lifetime voting ban if the person is found guilty by a jury of their peers.

It's a long tradition of accusing the other guy of what you are doing.
