The Daily Muck

An Ohio man who was indicted on 24 counts of voter fraud has been declared incompetent to stand trial. Antonio Alvande, who was instead sent to Twin Valley Behavioral Healthcare, had submitted fraudulent voter registrations for himself and at least eight other people, some of whom were completely made up. While an odd case, Alvande's actions help further debunk GOP claims of widespread deliberate voter fraud. (NBC4 Columbus)

House Republicans are renewing calls for Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) to step down as the investigation into his finances drags on. While the House Ethics Committee has not yet voted on how to proceed with its probe, the Sunlight Foundation, a watchdog group, has found that Rangel failed to properly report the purchase or sale of assets 28 times since 1978. Rep. John Carter (R-TX) became the most recent House member to call for Rangel's resignation on Wednesday. (Congressional Quarterly)
