The real electoral fraud being perpetrated across our country is the GOP’s frantic claim that hordes of ineligible Democrats are voting illegally. It just isn’t true.
Sugar Land, Texas, is the hometown of Catherine Engelbrecht, a tea party zealot, who founded an outfit called True the Vote, which has run a nationwide witch-hunt to find and indict those imaginary hordes of Democrats casting illegal ballots.
No luck there. But rather than charging pell-mell across the country, she could have sniffed out a real fraud case right under her nose.
Bruce Fleming, running for county commissioner in Engelbrecht’s very own precinct, turns out to be a serial violator of voter integrity laws. In 2006, 2008 and 2010, he voted in person in Sugar Land, then voted again by mail in Yardley, Pa., where he owns a home.
But he’s a Republican, and Engelbrecht’s fraud squad wasn’t looking for those.
