Absentee Ballots = election fraud looking for a place to happen.

Time to do away with them forever except for those serving overseas. They are the leading election fraud problem when trying to have honest elections. If you can't make it to the polls... so be it. Unfortunately the Democrats would fight tooth and nail to keep them.

The standards for absentee ballots were lowered in liberal districts during the recount which allowed Franken to steal the election.

Why do you have trouble reporting that?
