THIS NEWS ITEM IS TAKEN FROM THE BRAD BLOG SITE OF FRIDAY – MARCH-4TH. REPUBLICAN HYPOCRISY IS ON FULL DISPLAY HERE – (BUT THAT’S JUST PAR FOR THE COURSE!).

The GOP ‘voter fraud epidemic’ continues…
What do GOP superstar Ann Coulter, the head of the GOP’s California voter registration firm Mark Anthony Jacoby, and, as of yesterday, Indiana’s newly elected GOP Secretary of State Charlie White all have in common? Unlike the four-decade old community organization ACORN, each of the Republicans appear to have committed voter fraud and/or voter registration fraud.
Coulter’s well-documented acts of voter fraud and voter registration fraud took place in 2005 in Palm Beach County, FL, and were preceded by likely acts ofvoter fraud in Connecticut in 2002 and 2004 as well. Jacoby’s voter registration fraud in CA led to his 2008 arrest and subsequent guilty plea. And now White, the new chief election official in IN, the state with one of the most draconian voter suppression polling-place Photo ID restriction laws in the nation, has been charged with three counts of voter fraud (as well as additional counts of perjury, financial institution fraud, and theft), just two months after being sworn in last January, for having lied about his address when he voted in last year’s GOP primary…
The state’s top election official will face seven felony counts, including voter fraud, perjury and theft, a special prosecutor said today.
Secretary of State Charlie White was accused of intentionally voting in the wrong precinct during the May 2010 primary, a potential felony.
White turned himself in at the Hamilton County Jail Thursday afternoon and was released after posting $10,000 bond.
White has admitted to voting in a district where he no longer lived.
EVEN THE GOVERNOR THINKS HE SHOULD STEP ASIDE – PENDING THE INVESTIGATION —
In a statement released yesterday, Republican Governor Mitch Daniels said: “It would be neither credible nor appropriate for the state’s top elections official to continue to perform his duties while contesting criminal charges, some of them under the very laws the secretary of state implements.”
The Chief Election Official in the State of Indiana is an absolute scofflaw on the very legitimacy of his OWN voting behavior!
