Believe it or not Rachel Maddow lookalike Alex Pareene of Salon isn't quite as dimwitted as his writing suggests.
He seems to grasp the issues but like Brad Friedman and a gazillion other left-wingers Pareene doesn't give a farthing's cuss about ballot box integrity. The former Wonkette writer (yes, Wonkette, the thinking person's Perez Hilton) demonizes anybody who dares to suggest that people should have to prove who they are when they show up at polling stations to vote.
Pareene vermiculated over to his computer keyboard earlier today to attack the esteemed election law scholar Hans von Spakovsky for daring to suggest there may be improprieties in the special election tomorrow in New York's 9th congressional district.
Pareene mocks von Spakovsky for citing an old example of voter fraud from 1982 in a paper, as if no voter fraud has occurred since then. Horrors! In fact voter fraud, or as Democrats call it -- "getting out the vote," is a routine occurrence.
As I reported in the Daily Caller, Lessadolla Sowers was convicted earlier this year on 10 counts of fraudulently casting absentee ballots. Sowers, a member of the Tunica County, Miss., NAACP Executive Committee, received five-year concurrent prison terms for each of the 10 counts. John Fund's book, Stealing Elections, contains plenty more examples of voter fraud.
And like the rest of the brain-damaged commenters who seem to believe this writer wants to bar the poor from voting, Pareene resorts to lies and distortions to attack my work. He claims I wrote that voter fraud " is a phony threat hyped by Republican operatives in order to whip up support for rules making it more difficult for poor people, minorities, and other traditional Democratic constituencies to vote."
Complete BS but that's what professional voter fraud deniers like Pareene do.

America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists who use the brutal, in-your-face, pressure tactics of want to destroy America as we know it and will use any means to do it.
