Voter Fraud? What Voter Fraud?

We all know that liberals think voter fraud does not exist, and that President Obama’s new White House counsel believes anyone who talks about it should be investigated by the Justice Department for engaging in voter intimidation. So what does the Obama administration do with people who actually commit voter fraud? Why, it rewards them with political positions in the administration!

The American Thinker has a great post about this. You may recall that during the 2008 election election, it was discovered that about a dozen staffers for Obama’s presidential campaign who were assigned to work in Ohio had actually registered to vote and cast ballots in the state. They were accused of committing voter fraud, because you cannot register to vote in a state when you are merely working there temporarily and have no intention to make it your actual residence. After this news came to light, a local prosecutor warned the campaign that its employees had broken the law. To avoid being charged with felonies, the staffers sent a letter asking that their registrations and ballots be canceled. (Members of the Kerry campaign did the same thing in 2004 in Wisconsin, according to a special report released by the Special Investigations Unit of the Milwaukee Police Department.)

One of the Obama campaign staffers who registered illegally in 2008 and signed the letter was Olivia Alair, who worked for White House press secretary Robert Gibbs as the campaign’s regional communications director in Ohio. Despite her commission of felony voter fraud, Alair was not only given a job on the transition team, but she is now the press secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation. In the Obama administration, no bad deed goes unrewarded.
