It seems that a special election in Troy, NY in 2009 there was a bit of mickey mouse type cheating going. If it could happen in an election like that one why couldn't it happen through absentee voting in any other election. I think that this is real voter fraud and one of those accused of taking part said that it is very common all over the place and by both parties, Republican and Democrat.

I grew up in IL following Chicago politics. Suffice to say that I'm shocked! Shocked I say!

Both parties have done it.

This is what you need to be concerned about. This guy ended up dead soon after I believe. Although, the biggest issue is all the road blocks that inhibit any real alternatives to the typical 2 different flavors of ice cream. You don't get much in choices.

2 different flavors causes problems, just follow the Chicago model of 1 party rule.

Should have seen the look on my friends face (from China) when i described Chicago politics to him....he was like "That's exactly how it is in China."

Note: Rahm Emanueal gives whitehouse chief of staff job to Bill Daley....and shocker....he gets the Chicago mayors job from retiring Richard Daley. Told my co-workers Rahm was the guaranteed mayor when that happened and they were like "naaaah, that can't happen."

You can't trust politicians, and now you can't trust the vote.
