Here’s a stupid idea from Floriduh/Georgeduh that is spreading like wildfire through-out Wingnuttia:
Republican politicians in at least three states are proposing to establish police forces to hunt exclusively for voter fraud and other election crimes, a category of offenses that experts say is tiny at best.
Supporters say the added enforcement will root out instances of fraud and assure the public that everything possible is being done to make sure that American elections are accurate and legitimate.
These election cops would “be charged with enforcing election laws, investigating election crimes and fraud, and arresting those who commit these offenses,” according to a release from [David Perdue’s] campaign. Perdue’s plan also called for “election results to be independently audited before certification.”
What could go wrong?
Somewhere a cyber ninja just smiled.
