Sorry, that came off ruder than intended. I meant that it’s unclear whether you agree or not with what they are saying. I’m wanting you to quote the sections you agree with and state that, or quote the sections you disagree and state that.
Having watched the video now, it seems your main point is that only a few felons (the video says 20) have voted, and thus claims Walker has made about voter fraud are false. And that you think it’s funny how they bend over backward to try to justify his comment at “political” rather than factual. Am I correct?
In the 2010 election I believe there were 7 cases of fraud. Mostly felons trying to vote.
I was trying to get people to watch with an open mind. The whole interview is remarkably cool and calm considering the heated atmosphere in Wisconsin.
A common sense view might be helpful. How much difference does each vote make? The answer is not much. (Margin of victory for Walker last time was 50,000.) Rancid Prebus said fraud would be 1-2% which if two million vote would amount to 20,000 to 40,000 votes. Hard to imagine how that many fraudulent votes could be spread over some 2,000 precincts. You’d need 5,000 or 10,000 people willing to risk their freedom in order to add that many.
Now, if we’re talking about hacking Diebold voting machines like the Republicans did in Ohio in 2004, the task becomes far more managable.
True, but Rancid was saying 1-2% which is a huge number, an impossible number to reach without counting fraud.
Vote fraud the way Republican envision it is a myth, an urban legend.
The nightmare in Ohio in 2004 where Democratic districts had eight hour waiting lines (Oberlin where my daughter’s best friend did the waiting in the rain) and accusations of Diebold machines overcounting were far more serious than any retail fraud in Wisconsin.
Sometimes I think Republicans are guilty of projection where they project motives and methods they themselves use on to the Democrats.
Let’s not forget the Indiana Secretary of State who was guilty of cheating:
