Mayor Uses Absentee Ballots to Rig Election, Dateline Nov. 30th, 2006

Here’s an interesting story about a mayor who rigs elections using, what else?… absentee votes.

During an October trial of one of Cooper’s 13 co-defendants, the ex-mayor was portrayed as the key figure in a plot to rig the election – mostly through intercepting absentee ballots from the mail and forging the names of the intended voters – and create a rogue police department.

But this isn’t speculation, no, the mayor plead guilty. Vote by mail may not be as secure and fraud free as those who support it would lead you to believe. Just a thought.
