Oh, That Democrat Vote Fraud.........

You know how Democrats keep assuring us that vote fraud is a non-existent problem, for which no remedy is needed?

The Detroit Free Press: 3 Hamtramck men charged with illegal possession of absentee ballots

Three men, including a Hamtramck city council candidate in August’s primary election, are being charged with returning absentee ballots that did not belong to them, state Attorney General Bill Schuette and Secretary of State Ruth Johnson’s offices announced today.

Hamtramck Deputy City Clerk August Gitschlag told authorities that three people had delivered multiple absentee ballots to City Hall in violation of state election law, which says those in possession of ballots must be the voter, a relative, mail carrier or authorized official.

Salim Ahmed, 50, of Hamtramck, is charged with 21 counts of improper possession or return of absentee ballots. Armani Asad, 33, of Hamtramck, is charged with 14 counts of improper possession or return of absentee ballots. Mohammed Russell, 32, of Hamtramck, is charged with six counts of improper possession or return of absentee ballots. The charges are felonies punishable by up to five years in prison and a $1,000 fine.

As usual for the Freep when a person or persons get caught committing a crime involving politics while having a certain political affiliation, it's time for a game of Name That Party!

I'll give you a hint, one which you won't get from reading the article. The Party name that all three of these Arabs belong to starts with a capital "D".

Absentee ballots, without decent chains of custody are more than ripe for vote fraud, and Michigan should certainly look into making absentee ballot procedures more fraud resistant rather than continuing on the path to make such ballots even easier to obtain without any accountability.
