Letter writer Barry Jay Warsch hints at a bias against conservatives in voter-fraud reporting by the media, but he is only successful at comparing apples to oranges.
Apples: Upon investigation by Florida counties’ electoral officials, governor-mandated voter purges and in-depth examination before last year’s presidential election, no voter fraud was detected to elicit the extra voter I.D. measures that Gov. Rick Scott and the Republican-led Legislature enacted across the entire state in an obvious attempt to benefit their own party.
Oranges: After a private investigator became aware of ballot gathering by certain local individuals and gave the evidence to police, “the boletera” issue finally came to the authorities’ attention.
Following the 2012 local election, the Miami Herald uncovered that a straw party’s candidate (Justin Lamar Sternad) had been paid to influence the Democratic congressional primary between Democrat Joe Garcia and Republican David Rivera in the latter’s favor.
If Warsch hasn’t yet read the June 19 Other Views column, Scalia doesn’t want to see your papers, it would be wise to do so to cover any gaps he may still have regarding voting vis-a-vis the U.S. Constitution.
