    I wonder how many elections they'd win if they didn't cheat; I guess we'll never know...
    I donít think either party can lay claim to virginal purity when it comes to the sordid aspects of elections. I can remember the necromancers of Cook County raising the dead to help JFK defeat Nixon.

    Just read about it again this week in the WI State Journal. Also, people who have reported it happening to them.

    And voter fraud, which Republicans are constantly warning about, is practically non-existent in real life.

    Serious question: In those localities which allow illegal immigrants to be issued drivers licenses, can those licenses be used to register to vote without proof of citizenship?

    In California you have to provide the last 4 digits of your ssn. And the CA voter database is then transmitted to the US DOJ to verify eligibility. Presumably this weeds out both documented and undocumented immigrants who might attempt to register.

    Thank you. I wonder about those areas with motor voter.

    Looks like Pelosi will be admitting defeat and sending the articles of impeachment to the Senate, who will apparently apply the same trial rules as they did in the Clinton era.

    I don't remember Henry Hyde saying he was going to ignore testimony and coordinate with Bill Clinton and acquit him before the proceedings started.

    The same rules package as for Clinton. A full vote to open the trial and later votes to call witnesses. As with Clintonís trial, it seems doubtful any evidence or testimony offered will much affect the ultimate result.
