Guess that Party: Congressman’s Top Aide Implicated in Voter Fraud
by Rick Moran
Jeffrey Garcia, Congressman Joe Garcia’s (no relation) chief of staff has been implicated in a “sophisticated scheme to manipulate last year’s primary elections by submitting hundreds of fraudulent absentee-ballot requests,” according to the Miami Herald.
[quote]Friday afternoon, Garcia said he had asked Jeffrey Garcia, no relation, for his resignation after the chief of staff — also the congressman’s top political strategist — took responsibility for the plot. Hours earlier, law enforcement investigators raided the homes of another of Joe Garcia’s employees and a former campaign aide in connection with an ongoing criminal investigation into the matter.
Quick quiz: What party does Mr. Garcia represent? The entire 1500 word article never says. The only hint is when we discover that the scheme also touched another Democrat, as Jeffrey Gracia also worked for Rep. Patrick Murphy’s campaign.
While there was no massive fraud because computers caught the scheme before anyone could actually vote, the case should raise a big red flag about online voting and registration. There are too many clever nerds out there who can game the system and perhaps, defeat the countermeasures taken by authorities.[/quote]
I suppose this could be spun so as not to contradict the No voter fraud happened narrative -this guy got caught. But for that spin to work it has to be assumed that every such fraud attempt got caught, by people who cared to prevent it. That assumption is more than I can find credible.
