No wonder they’re afraid of voter fraud…

If their pastors and priests do it.

Ralph Z. Hallow in the ::cough!:: Washington Times (via Rachel and Quentin Compson at Atrios):

In an evolving power struggle, religious conservatives are feuding about whether a weekend meeting in Texas yielded a consensus that former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum is the best bet to stop Mitt Romney’s drive for the Republican presidential nomination.

A leading evangelical and former aide to President George H.W. Bush said he agreed with suspicions voiced by others at the meeting of evangelical and conservative Catholic activists that organizers “manipulated” the gathering and may even have stuffed the ballot to produce an endorsement of Mr. Santorum over former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

Yet another evangelical political organizer who attended the meeting said he witnessed a possible incident of ballot-box stuffing. In at least one instance, the witness said, a participant was seen writing Mr. Santorum´s name on four separate ballots and putting all four in the box.

As we keep saying, Republicans accuse Democrats of things because that’s what they’re doing. The only thing that’s notable about this instance is that it’s people who claim to be following Jesus who are stuffing the ballot box.

    The Ten Commandments don’t say anything about voting. But arguably, vote fraud might be covered by “Thou shalt not bear false witness.”
