Ron Paul Supporters Commit Actual Voter Fraud, Crash Nevada’s Orthodox Jewish Caucus

Posted by Phoenix Woman on February 7, 2012

Uh, Paulies, besides its being an actual (as opposed to FOX-hallucinated) act of voter fraud, crashing a Nevada caucus set up for Orthodox Jewish voters is not how you make folks stop wondering if you or your leader are anti-semites:

In order to participate, caucus-goers “had to sign a legal declaration under penalty of perjury that they could not attend their daytime caucus because of ‘my religious beliefs’,” according to the Times.

But some media outlets, such as the Los Angeles Times and the Associated Press, have reported that many Paul supporters signed the document, even though they weren’t actually prevented from voting earlier due to their religion.

Though Mitt Romney was declared the overall winner in Nevada, Paul received the vast majority of votes in the special late-night caucus.

As one HuffPo commenter says, if this was being done by Democrats you know the Republicans would be shouting it from the rooftops. James O’Keefe would be on every major TV network pimping his cut-and-paste videos of it.
