West Virginia, Vote Fraud, And the Third World Sheriff

You’d expect to read a story like this of some third world country where some half baked dictator reigned.  Alas, it seems that West Virginia qualifies…

A West Virginia sheriff pleaded guilty to voter fraud in the state’s 2010 primary election including illegally filling in some absentee ballots out of fear he might lose a close election, authorities said on Monday.  Lincoln County, West Virginia Sheriff Jerry Bowman admitted falsifying absentee ballots in a case stemming from an investigation by federal authorities, the U.S. Attorney’s office said.  Also pleading guilty to lying to investigators was Lincoln County Clerk Donald Whitten, the U.S. Attorney said.

Vote fraud… welcome to the third world, West Virginia.  Welcome home.
