Rosh On Fraud

Mary-John Rosh-Lott, Jnr. is concerned about phony results in the Minnesota Senate race.

To many, it just seems like too much of a coincidence that Minnesota's one tight race just happens to be the race with the most "corrected" votes by far. But the real travesty will be to start letting election officials divine voter's intent. If you want to discourage people from voting, election fraud is one sure way of doing it.

And if you want to discourage people from taking you seriously, research fraud is one sure way of doing it.

Mary-John, you may remember, is the man who conducted a telephone survey for one of his gun-nut books and then, when questioned, couldn't find any record of the survey data, the persons surveyed or the students who purportedly conducted the survey. Apparently a flood at his office destroyed his computer, his backup data, all of the students who performed the survey and his ability to lie convincingly.

Anyone who would let Mary-John within 500 miles of an ethical or legal issue, let alone one involving fraudlent polling results, is either dumber than a box of Katherine Harris or as dishonest as Fox News.
