Vote Fraud: Ironic and "Legal"

A New Hampshire editorial pointed out yet another ironic vote fraud case:

The Keene Sentinel was one of the most strident opponents of New Hampshire’s voter ID law during the 2011-2012 legislative session. The paper mocked the very idea that voter fraud happens in New Hampshire. So it is amusing that the state Attorney General’s office announced this month that voter fraud was committed in Keene in 2012.

However, more interesting than that case was the troubling New Hampshire “vote” of Democrat political activist Caitlin Legacki.  Legacki “voted” in New Hampshire in 2012 despite no longer ”living there” :

We confirmed with the city clerk’s office that a vote under Legacki’s name and address was recorded. But Legacki moved out of New Hampshire shortly after the 2008 election (in which she voted) and was in St. Louis on Election Day 2012, working for U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill. “It certainly was news to me” that she was checked as having voted in Manchester in 2012, she told us last week.

While it could be innocent error, Legacki is exactly the kind of person a Democrat fraudster could safely vote.  They know there is no way she is going to show up to vote and shows the needs for voting lists to be updated. 

Most troubling of all is the other kind of legal fraud perpetrated in this instance:

No one has noted, though, that Legacki was one of many out-of-state campaign workers who moved to New Hampshire for a temporary campaign job in 2008, voted in the election, then quickly left. The state Attorney General has held that this is legal. It should not be. Fixing that loophole should make its way back onto the Legislature’s agenda.

A police task force in Wisconsin reported on this all too common phenomenon (where it is illegal) and an activist proved how easy it was to move to a city for a day and vote in Colorado under their new laws.  

Vote fraud is real and prevalent no matter how much the left tries to deny it or take advantage of it.
