I don't know if I have ever seen such widespread voter fraud in my lifetime. This reminds me of Chicago politics of the past.
Hmmm......or is it Chicago politics of the past? Is it maybe....Chicago politics brought to the national stage?
This article is one of hundreds that talk about "impartial voter registration" organizations doing the disgusting in order to bring votes to their candidate of choice. While reading this, please realize that this woman voted already. She along with thousands in my current home state of Ohio have voted, and while it is probably technically legal, I think it is representative of a disgusting "ends justify the means" approach that the left has taken to since the 1960's.
Alzheimer's patient voted, records show

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH
Examples of possible voter fraud stretch from the farmlands of Ohio to the West Coast.
In Highland County, 95-year-old Mildred Meddock registered and voted for the first time in her life despite her advanced Alzheimer's disease.
Her granddaughters learned of her newfound patriotism when they visited the nursing home where Meddock lives and saw an "I voted today" sticker on her clothing.
Records show that Meddock registered Sept. 26 when two Highland County Board of Elections employees visited the home, Heartland of Hillsboro, about 65 miles south of Columbus. Four other residents also were registered and voted that day.
"I'm hot. I'm livid," said granddaughter Chrystal Brown. "A month ago, she couldn't tell you her name she was so bad, and, depending on what time of day it is, her name is the only thing she can tell you."
The secretary of state's office is investigating, assigning an attorney to the case and giving him subpoena power.
"When you have a captive audience dealing with a disability, there's always a concern about undue influence," Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner told The Dispatch last night.
She said this isn't the first complaint her office has received about the nursing-home group.
Heartland of Ohio operates 48 nursing homes in the state. "The boards of elections do come to our centers regularly," said Kelly Kessler, a Heartland spokesman. "A lot of our patients want to vote and they come with absentee ballots."
Brown has no problem with the outreach effort as long as patients are competent.
"My question is ... which side was she coerced into voting for, or maybe my question is how many impaired elderly people are used and taken advantage of for their vote?" Brown said.
