7. I don't get it
I've googled key words for any other information and all I get is a repeat of this sparse ill informed article.

Why is it illegal to help people vote absentee? Is it because those people COULD have voted in person but were goaded into voting absentee? Even so, why is that illegal? From the outside it looks like the Republican (no doubt) prosecutor wants to send a message to stop this kind of thing in the future. That is that many poor urban black (or white) citizens may not actually go out and vote on voting day if they hadn't been approached and told about this alternate way wherein they didn't have to leave their homes.

This seems like it was done to create another ACORN for the Democrats. Most of the sites I found when I Googled were freeper sites where they are ASSuming they are all Democrats and using the story to confirm their convictions that its the Dems who are cheating...once again.

Most likely the story with be repeated on Rush for days. They say it won't be until next year that the trial will happen, so they will be able to milk the "Democratic Fraud rampant" angle until after the election, where the case will be thrown out of court if that is all they have on them.
