Democrat campaign manager jailed for illegally requesting hundreds of absentee ballots

Hundreds of illegal ballots. Hundreds.
WSVN reports Jeffrey Garcia pled guilty Monday to one felony charge and three misdemeanor charges after admitting he illegally requested hundreds of absentee ballots while he was running the campaign for Rep. Joe Garcia, who he is not related to.

That felony and trio of misdemeanors adds up to 90 days in jail. Is it any wonder these people think they rule us? They stuff ballot boxes with impunity, and if they are by some miracle caught, charged, and convicted, they'll be punished with a 90-day wrist-slap and a felony that would destroy an ordinary person's life but probably won't impede their work in politics at all.

And if you are sitting there smugly thinking that voter fraud controversies like this have no real impact, John Lott points out that the Pennsylvania State Senate changed party control due to voter fraud in 1994. Given how rarely these crimes are prosecuted, there are almost certainly other cases that we don't know about with similar impact.
