    From the article:

    http://www.addictinginfo.org/2012/10/01/california-gop-voter-fraud/



    *In the article, it was actually another Republican group that was committing voter registration fraud in an attempt to disenfranchise Democrats. Again. And I looked at the other instances of this happening in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado and Nevada, and I'm all "My gut is telling me that something just doesn't look right". So I unskewed the above story by swapping the words "Democrats" and "Republicans".

    The first clue was right here:
    Nobody's gonna believe there are up to 133 latino or black Republicans in a single county. :shakehead:

    I think we all guessed that this was going to be a warmed over Flintlicker post when we saw you as the OP.

    The first thing that comes to my mind is, why would you change voters' party afffiliation?

    In the primary, it makes people who are against your party vote in your primary, which increases votes for the candidate you dislike, if they vote at all. In turn, that hurts your party in the general election, if you end up with a bad candidate.

    In the general election, they would never even know what party they are registered as and it wouldn't matter.

    Likewise, if these people weren't registered to vote at all, registering people who may vote for the other party is a really, really bad idea.

    Seems like a pretty useless, or even counter-productive, kind of fraud, no matter which party may have done it.

    Kind of a recurring theme when the Republicans try to play the Democrat game, isn't it? They add just enough of their own twist to it to make it destructive to their own cause.

    Or, they pick a Democrat strategy that's already demonstrated its failure, and follow it to a T. Note the similarities between John Kerry's and Mitt Romney's presidential bids.
