1. ummm...no
Edited on Wed Oct-29-08 11:00 AM by Veilex
I take issue with Professor Overton's statement regarding voter fraud. He in effect stated that voter fraud is rare because very very few people are convicted of it. Ummmmm... A conviction doesnt determine whether or not fraud is accruing. This would be akin to saying that Bush isnt a war criminal because he hasnt been convicted of wrong doing...or a rapist isnt a rapist because they havent been convicted. This is a very wrong headed way of thinking.

Fraud is rampant because it's hard to prove that it occurred. Moreover, even if you can prove it occurred, it's hard to convict anyone of this kind of crime as you then have to prove that they did it intentionally.

Other than that he seems spot on.

*edited for spelling*
