What is it about Mormon Republican Presidential candidates and their proclivity for committing voter fraud?
For that matter, what is it about high-profile Republicans in general and their rapidly growing record of voter fraud, as we have two new reports today of two more very high profile Republicans who appear to have committed voter fraud? One of them is GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the other U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri.
But they are just the two latest in a quickly growing list of Republican vote fraudsters.
In March, as you'll recall, Utah's former Republican Gov. Jon Huntsman, Jr. --- who is believed likely to jump into the GOP Presidential race soon --- was alleged to have committed voter fraud by casting his vote last year via his registration at the governor's mansion despite having resigned and moved out of the address almost two years prior to become President Obama's Ambassador to China.
Previously, of course, we've reported in great detail on GOP superstar Ann Coulter's repeated and now well-documented voter fraud. More recently (and more ironically), Charlie White, the newly-elected Republican Sec. of State of Indiana --- a state with, until recently, the most draconian, disenfranchising polling-place Photo ID restrictions in the nation --- was indicted on seven felony counts, three of them related to voter fraud, after he continued to vote at a residence where he no longer lived (where he also continued to illegally serve on the town council, despite no longer living there).
And now, according to a complaint filed by another GOP Presidential hopeful, it appears that current front-runner Mitt Romney has been playing similarly fast and loose with his own residency and is alleged to have voted, illegally, in last year's special election for the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts despite no longer being a resident of the state...
Mother Jones' Stephanie Mencimer tells the story today of the complaint filed in Massachusetts by Republican Presidential candidate Fred Karger, who claims that the multi-millionaire Romney voted in the special election for Scott Brown last year, as well as other Bay State elections, by claiming that he lived in the basement of his son's home.
That, despite Romney having purchased a $12.5 million home in La Jolla, California, in 2008 and having sold his own Massachusetts home in 2009...
Unlike the make-it-up-as-you-go rules exploited by Ann Coulter when she was able to trick the Connecticut Election Commission into letting her off the hook for voting multiple times at her parents' address in the Nutmeg State, even while she lived for years in a multi-million dollar Manhattan townhouse she purchased in her mid-forties (separate charges from the no-uncertain-terms case of voter fraud she committed later in Palm Beach County, FL), the definition of "residency" is much clearer in the great state of Massachusetts...
