Schurick guilty of election fraud in robocall case (Md)
Source: Baltimore Sun

A Baltimore jury said Tuesday that Paul Schurick, former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s campaign manager, was guilty of election fraud for his role in an Election Day 2010 robocall.

The jury found Schurick guilty on all four counts, including election fraud and failing to include an Ehrlich campaign authorization line on the calls.

...

"We made a faux pas," defense attorney A. Dwight Pettit said in his closing statement Monday. "That's not criminal. That's evidence of somebody who made a political misjudgment, a political faux pas, a political mistake."

...

State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt told the jury Monday that the primary evidence against Schurick is "the message itself. It's not just a dirty trick," he said. "It's not just an unfair tactic. In the state of Maryland, it's illegal."

You can't forget about those poor bums and illegal aliens who are casting fraudulent Democrat votes and voting themselves a welfare check! :sarcasm:

Now how about going after the CEO of Diebold and other voting machine fraudsters?

6. Election fraud vs voter fraud
We know election fraud is rampant, but voter fraud extremely rare. You're talking about election fraud which keeps being swept under the rug, while nonexistent voter fraud tactics remain the justification for efforts to block voters from voting, especially if they're poor or minority voters.
