The voter fraud fraud. - By Bonnie Goldstein - Slate Magazine Read this and realize this has been studied and the truth is not in the favor of what they republicans claim. The study was then hacked away at by Bush appointees to hide the true facts. Serebrov and Wang submitted their initial findings to be "vetted and edited" by an Election Assistance Commission working group. That's when the hackwork began. The final report asserts, falsely, that "there is a great deal of debate on the pervasiveness of fraud in elections." Wang, the Democrat, has objected in writing that this and other revisions were made "without explanation or discussion." A gag order in the original contract forbids her to discuss the matter. Serebrov, the Republican, isn't happy either. The New York Times reported (subscription required) that he complained to a staffer for the Election Assistance Commission that neither consultant "was willing to conform [their] results [to] political expediency," and that Serebrov "could care less that the results are not what the more conservative members of my party wanted.''
