Can You Say Voter Fraud? I Know You Can

How is it possible to get 105% voter registration? That's what Indianapolis, Indiana achieved. Is ACORN involved? Count on it.
According to STATSIndiana, In 2007, Indianapolis/Marion County had an estimated population of 876,804. Of that number 232,607 were below 18 years of age, for a total of 644,197 people in Marion County/Indianapolis 18 or over and thus eligible to vote. (Indiana allows felons to vote as long as they are not incarcerated).

So we have 644,197 people eligible to be registered in Marion County/Indianapolis, and 677,401 people registered. Congratulations go to Indianapolis for having 105% of its residents registered!
Just remember, the New York Times will continue to tell its readers that there's no voter fraud across the country and that efforts to try and clear the rolls of bogus entries is somehow illegal or restricts the rights of those people to vote. The Times is wrong.

The New York Times and Washington Post forgets that every bogus vote cast or indicated means that your legitimate vote gets offset by someone who is voting illegally. Your right to vote is harmed by these illegal and bogus votes. That's the crime committed here, not trying to clear the voter rolls of bogus names, preventing those who are barred from voting (illegal aliens or felons or dead people) from casting votes, and ensuring that the voter rolls are accurate.

Here in New Jersey, we've already seen that people who submitted absentee ballots were able to receive new ballots claiming that since their choice dropped out of the race prior to primary day, they were entitled to submit new ballots. That's a situation ripe for abuse. With more people choosing to vote by absentee ballot and mail in ballots across the country, abuse of that right is only likely to increase. Thousands of dead people appeared on ballots in New Jersey and reports also indicate that people voted twice in past elections - once in New Jersey and again in a different state.

Jammie takes on the New York Times article as well.

Instapundit links. Thanks! He also provides a treasure trove of still more funny business with voting rolls across the country, including in Connecticut, where thousands of dead people were still on voter rolls.
