Yesterday we heard news that someone has actually tried to pull off voter impersonation fraud in Manchester, New Hampshire — the exceedingly rare form of election fraud where someone tries to impersonate another person. That’s also the sort of fraud that most voter ID laws are meant to stop.
The anecdote seemed odd, for a number of reasons.
And what do you know? The culprits were pals of notorious huckster James O’Keefe trying to prove what a big problem vote impersonation fraud is by trying to commit it. And like anyone who actually commits vote fraud should, it looks like they might be looking at jail time.
