Dead Vote Dem
One Bronx address was listed as the home for as many as 191 registered voters who had died. The address is 5901 Palisade Ave., in Riverdale, site of the Hebrew Home for the Aged.In New York, "Jew" and "Dem" are pretty much synonymous, of course. But the GOP's hands aren't clean in this fraud; just cleaner.
Last week, I was talking to my doctor of 18 years, a Greek immigrant. We've gotten to know each other over the years ... we know not to talk about the war in Iraq if we want a short office visit, for example ... and I admire him as a man who thinks and cares deeply.
When we talked about voter fraud, we were on the same page. He cannot understand how we diminish our democracy, a democracy he worked hard to become a citizen of, by making it so easily corruptible. In Greece, he said, it's some work to vote -- getting registered, having an ID, taking it to the polls, where it's checked rigorously by poll workers. But not here.
Voter reform has come down to this: Either you love democracy and want to save it, or you love your agenda and are willing to sacrifice democracy to attain it.
Why are we letting the latter group win? There is no excuse -- other than the agendas of the electeds, not the electorate -- for America not to have a universal photo voter ID by the 2008 presidential election. Sadly, there's little expectation it will happen.
