    Funny how, despite all their screaming about the subject, Republicans are the ones who we keep catching in the act of voter fraud.

      And the ones getting slaps on the wrist. Wasn’t one Republican official charged with like 8 counts and still only had to pay $5k? Whereas that black lady in Texas or Alabama almost went to jail, after being told she could vote by the staff, and it didn’t count regardless while the dude’s 8-9 votes did.

        That guy was convicted of voting while on probation for a felony with a plausible explanation for why he thought the felony probation had ended. The guy might be a huge piece of shit, but his story does not prove anything and does not bear repeating.

        Crystal Madison’s sentence was reversed – although not without a fight.

        The twin stories show the profound difference in how the law treats a white middle class conservative man vs a younger black woman, but the conclusion we draw from both situations must be the same: felons should not be disenfranchised and so no one should be punished for voting while on felony probation. Voting ought to be a right and not a privilege.

        Ugh I had not heard of these cases, but yeah that sounds about typical under the eye of the people who are actively trying to destroy democracy just so they themselves can have their rights taken away.

      For a while I doubted the people who always say so in threads like these, but if it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably projection. Every time.

    I was actually friends with someone whose mother illegally voted on their behalf. It made minor national headlines and everything.

    She got a slap on the wrist.

    Republican, of course.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    An Iowa woman found guilty on 52 counts of voter fraud, carried out in support of her Republican husband, was given an eight-month custodial sentence.

    Kim Taylor, of Woodbury county, will serve four months in prison and four in home confinement, KTIV, a Sioux City TV station, reported.

    During sentencing on Monday, Leonard Strand, the judge, said a vastly lighter punishment was correct because of factors including Taylor’s caretaking role for her children and good community standing.

    The guilty verdict is an example of how the justice system works to protect the voting rights of citizens and ensure fair and honest elections.”

    Analysing voter fraud case data collected by the hard-right Heritage Foundation, the nonpartisan Brookings Institution recently said: “So, what’s going on here?

    Taylor’s lawyer, F Montgomery Brown, said he did not “see anything in the internal communications that suggested there was any influence by the Biden administration whatsoever.
