Today's required reading: Worth your time and perusal:
The Wall Street Journal's John Fund has an excellent article on the goings on in Washington State. Highlight:
Not all of the voters at the county building are homeless or hard to find. A noted local judge and her husband have been registered at the county building for years. When I called her to ask why, she became flustered and said it was because of security concerns, specifically because "the Mexican mafia are out to get me." When I pointed out that her home address and phone number were easily found on the Internet and in property records, she ended the conversation by refusing to answer a question about whether she had improperly voted for state legislative candidates who would represent the county building but not her residence.
This judge was probably right to shut up -- because it's generally bad news when a judge is a implicated in voter fraud.
Xrlq has an excellent fisking of Sen. Barbara Boxer's (Idiot-Calif.) explanation for her attempt to disenfranchise the voters from Ohio. There's currently no statement from my idiot on the Washington State debacle.
Usually I hate it when Varifrank is "unprofessional," this time I don't. [link contains some coarse, but appropriate, language.]
