North Carolina’s Republican legislative leaders want to call one election before all the votes are in. They say that state elections officials, having identified hundreds and perhaps thousands of voters who may have cast ballots in two states (one being North Carolina) in the 2012 general election, have justified the GOP’s voter suppression laws. Those laws include curbs on early voting and especially a Voter ID law.
If indeed those elections officials are able to prove significant fraud, then Republicans may crow as they wish. But it’s far too early to pronounce that voter fraud in North Carolina is a massive problem.
In fact, as the State Board of Elections under executive director Kim Strach proceeds with an investigation, 765 alleged voter fraud cases may prove to be not exactly fraud at all.
Basically, the fraud allegations turned up because of a “cross-check” of voter records involving 28 states. The check showed 765 voters whose first and last names, dates of birth and the last four digits of their Social Security numbers matched with a voter registered in another state and who voted in North Carolina and another state in 2012.
Credit Strach as the voice of reason in the wake of the allegations, while Republican lawmakers were going around the bend with glee. She said the cases could be fraud, or they might not be. The numbers could be the result of mistakes by precinct workers, who in a big election year can be extremely busy checking voters in. And some voters remain on the rolls after they die, at least for a while. Strach’s point was that voter rolls have to be accurate to reduce the chance of error.
And Bob Hall of the watchdog group Democracy North Carolina will doubtless be shouted down by GOP leaders so eager to justify their shameful attempts to reduce the number of Democratic voters. But he made a most salient point in saying that just because there are duplicate names doesn’t mean those voters are guilty of fraud.“I know there is more than one Bob Hall with my birthdate who lives among the 28 states researched,” Hall said.
Strach and the elections board have to look more closely into the issue before Republicans, whom Hall noted have a “political agenda” here, can use this number as proof positive that they needed to do what they did on Voter ID. Of course, when they did it, their intention was transparent. Older people who don’t drive, even some college students and the poor are among those likely to lack a conventional photo identification, and they also happen to be more likely to vote Democratic.
Republicans pushed through the suppression measures because they weren’t satisfied with drawing legislative and congressional districts to their great advantage following the 2010 Census.
Also important to consider is that those 765 cases cited represent an incredibly small fraction of millions of voters on the rolls checked. Even if each and every one is a case of voter fraud, and that’s almost certainly not the case, the number would represent a tiny fraction of all voters.
But that’s inconsequential to Republicans who want to use these numbers to their political advantage. What if it turns out, however, that the vast majority of these cases of duplication aren’t fraud at all, but mistakes? We trust that at that point, Republican leaders will step forward to admit they jumped the gun and will promise to undo the damage they did with their voter suppression laws.
Unfortunately, the GOP leaders seem more inclined to ignore any result that runs counter to their ideology and their determination to ensure that election laws favor their party.

There is a Christian legend about Pan. In some versions it takes place at the birth of Christ, in others it occurs during his crucifixion, but all involve travellers, usually sailors on the Mediterranean Sea. As they approach the coast, the wind suddenly drops, the air thickens, the vessel is becalmed, and an odd stillness descends. All day the sailors wait, and then, toward evening, a great thundering voice rings out: "The Great God Pan is dead!" Suddenly, from all the hills and streams, from the little hidden valleys, from temples and sacred groves, from mountain pastures and ferny cliffs, there rises a cry of lament, a vast outpouring of wailing and weeping and shrieking that echoes across the hills and valleys and spreads all across the land. Pan is dead.
After this event, the Greek oracles no longer prophesy accurately. The old gods of the classical world, the genies of all the old sacred sites, the nymphs of the wild places, the fauns and satyrs and centaurs, and all wild things fall silent. The Lord of the Wood is dead, and the new king's domain is not earth but heaven. The old order dies with Pan, giving way to a heaven-inspired mystic religion spread by the followers of Christ.
With the rise of science, the religious see their own demise on the horizon. Atheism is the next voice proclaiming the death of a god.
isn't that from "Jitterbug Perfume" by Tom Robbins?

GOP Candidate Sentenced for Felony Fraud After Changing Party Affiliation of 300 Democratic Voters, Casting Absentee Ballots in Their Name
With these 300 fraudulent votes created by one Republican candidate alone, that's 300 more fraudulent votes than have ever been created by ACORN or anybody who has ever worked for them.
But, of course, you're unlikely to hear that, or even this story itself, from the tenacious Fox "News" "voter fraud special investigative unit" or the GOP clowns who help them disinform American voters.

What you dumfks don't consider is that those scripts are called in by a local physician for a specific patient to be picked up during a certain period of time, usually a few days.
This ain't rocket science!!!
In Virginia you need a photo Id to pick up scripts and buy certain OTC drugs. War on meth don't you know. You can pick up Meds for a family member but you still need an ID.
