    So the Republicans were right about election meddling, they just happened to be the ones doing it. Add this to the NC issue.

    Two employees of the Suffolk County Board of Elections, as well as an East Hampton Independence Party leader, were charged Tuesday with forging signatures on nominating petitions, in some cases with the names of dead people, District Attorney Timothy Sini said.

    The former chairman of the East Hampton Town Republican Party is expected to face similar charges in court Wednesday.

    Board of Elections employee William Mann, 60, of Cutchogue, faces charges of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, first-degree offering a false instrument for filing and two counts of official misconduct. Another employee, Gregory Dickerson, 55, of Mattituck, was charged with two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and two counts of first-degree offering a false instrument for filing.

    I have always said that voter fraud, by voters argument was a red hearing.

    If you want to see fraud look at the powers and infrastructure that manage elections and the tallying of votes. How prophetic, that the group who has done the most to disenfranchise voters, and who have screamed the loudest about voter fraud, turns out to be the perpetrators. Just more self serving and cheating by the means justifies the ends crowd, brought to you by the decidedly unpatriotic and undemocratic GOP. All for the win, baby! :oops:

    Now, I’m waiting for the typical Right Wing equivalence arguments to surface. This possibly could/should void the election results if there was a tight race and the party they were working against lost. This should, imo cause a special election to take place.

    Whining about voter ID when these guys are just forging signatures.

    Now, are we sure the caravan crowd didn't just vote for the republicans?

    As the conservative base continues to dwindle, I expect them to take more drastic action to keep seats in competitive areas. Its going to get ugly.
