You may remember when McCain said that ACORN “is now on the verge of maybe perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy.” It really was a great scare tactic, but as a new article suggests. that's about all it was. Even Ronald Michaelson who was on McCain's Honest and Open Election Committee said :
“Do we have a documented instance of voting fraud that resulted from a phony registration form? No, I can’t cite one, chapter and verse."
That's pretty noteworthy as Michaelson served 27 years as the executive director of the Illinois Board of Elections. If anyone would have know about massive voter fraud, surely he would have heard about it somewhere along the line in that long career of his.
However, this is the funniest line in the article:
"Another member of McCain’s Honest and Open Election Committee, Harvard law professor and former U.S. solicitor general Charles Fried, stepped down last week after voting absentee for Obama-Biden."
That's gotta hurt.
