Dan Eggen and Amy Goldstein have a pretty good article on Rovian voter fraud fraud
in today's Washington Post. However, they do feel the need for a little Ballance writing "Ever since the contested 2000 presidential election, which ended in a Florida recount and intervention by the U.S. Supreme Court, both political parties have attempted to use election law to tip close contests to their advantage" and, then, proceeding to provide no evidence at all that Democrats do so. The form "both parties" seems to be allowed, indeed required, no matter what the facts are.
Also when they write "The Justice Department demanded that one U.S. attorney, Todd P. Graves of Kansas City, resign in January 2006, several months after he refused to sign off on a Justice lawsuit involving the state's voter rolls, Graves said last week." they neglect to mention that the Justice department lost the lawsuit, that is, a judge found that Graves was right and the people who fired him were wrong.
Also a mention that his successor indicted 4 people for allege election fraud 5 days before an election might have been mentioned in the context of the "strict rules against investigations shortly before elections" which are alleged to have an unwritten exception.
Still an excellent article by the standards of the Washington Post. I almost hope that I will live to see the journalistic standards of the Washington Post improve so much that a comparison to Talking Points Memo might pass the laugh test (at least with a mildly humor deprive tester).
update: Sorry I was unfair to Eggen and Goldstein. They have a scoop. There were complaints about alleged voter fraud in Nevada where Bogden used to be US attorney. I knew this was news to me (so what ?) but it is also news to Josh Marshall and Paul Kiel (What ?!?). This means that the article is much better than pretty good. This is excellent too.
