I’ve been assured that voter fraud never, ever happens

by Sonny Bunch on August 4, 2012

But [author of Season of the Witch, David] Talbot sees the events from inside San Francisco’s deeply corrupt justice system: Jones planted his legal adviser in the D.A.’s office. Nearly the entire political power structure — governor, mayor, supervisors, assemblymen — was in Jones’s pocket. It seems that Moscone, who was elected mayor by a mere 4,443 votes, may have had the election stolen for him by Jones, who drove his flock from precinct to precinct to help them cast multiple ballots.

—From Ellen Ullman’s review of Season of the Witch. As John Podhoretz noted on Twitter, the rest of the review is kind of hilarious because Ullman spends a ton of time decrying the lack of political correctness in the book—a history of San Francisco’s descent into madness in the 60s, 70s, and 80s which was written by the founder of Salon. But I just wanted to pull out that passage because I’ve been assured that voter fraud isn’t a big deal at all and voter ID measures are totes unnecessary. What that paragraph presuppose is…maybe they aren’t?
