Another Media Matters Miss: What Voter Fraud?

Another Media Matters Miss: What Voter Fraud?

Media Matters has managed to turn denying the obvious into a somewhat lucrative (for them, not for the donors, some who are abandoning ship) business. MMfA's Baghdad Bob impression, as it concerned Indiana fraud during the 2008 election, was no exception.

From October 18, 2011:here's how Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum began a report this morning: "There may have been some serious voter fraud in the Democratic primary back in 2008." The caption throughout the ensuing segment claimed: "Indiana district accused of 2008 Dem Primary Voter Fraud."

This is the reality, reported yesterday:

Felony charges related to election fraud have touched the 2008 race for the highest office in the land. Prosecutors in South Bend, Ind., filed charges Monday against four St. Joseph County Democratic officials and deputies as part of a multiple-felony case involving the alleged forging of Democratic presidential primary petitions in the 2008 election, which put then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton on the Indiana ballot.

The officials are accused of taking part in a scheme to fake signatures and names on the primary petitions needed to run for president. Court papers say the plan was hatched by local Democratic Party officials inside the local party headquarters.
