    Since the wingnuts got so upset at the makebelieve electoral fraud of ACORN, I'm sure they will be very upset at the real case of electoral fraud :lol:

    This is not electoral fraud. There are several states where you are allowed to run for a Congressional seat without actually living in the district. Apparently Kansas is one of them. I'm sure the guy's opponents will spend plenty of time pointing out he doesn't actually live there and the voters can decide how much that matters to them.

    It's fraud when you lie (and Hartmann did lie about where he lived) in order to get elected.

    It may not be a crime, but it is a fraud.

    I don't blame him. Have you ever been to Kansas? Although after the oil spill in the Gulf, Kansas might start looking pretty good.

    It is fraud if you lie to get elected? That means every politician currently in office committed fraud, what should we do?
