The Real Side, Real Right…

Today’s Alibi contained a piece by former Republican lawyer (I believe I had him listed as a current Republican in a previous post, and I apologize for that mistake) and Alibi columnist Jim Scarantino.

I’ve read Jim for quite a while. His Real Side Radio blog was a daily stop of mine (especially when he had posts from “Sally Mayer”) while he was on the radio. His weekly radio show was a must listen to as well.

Republican or Democrat, Jim has a very straightforward, honorable way of speaking. A way that I appreciate. Especially when he backs up my arguments. 😉

So there was no massive voter fraud that Iglesias missed.  He wasn’t sleeping on the job after all.  Those “mountains” of evidence that the Wednesday Morning QB claimed to have turned out to be molehills after all.

The money quote came at the end:

We looked into every allegation of “widespread” voter fraud we could find. The Iglesias task force looked into even more. They found nothing meriting prosecution. Little wonder, because, when it comes to voter fraud, there’s more dishonesty in GOP propaganda than there is at the polls.

So he and his team looked into “voter fraud.” And Iglesias looked into more “voter fraud.” And both sides found nothing to prosecute. I’m shocked, shocked I say, to discover that the NM GOP is engaged in a propaganda war, training their cannons (or popguns as it turns out) on David Iglesias.

And like a good Naval officer, Iglesias took their shots and stood up for himself. And this time, those popping off at Iglesias might find themselves under fire.

    These “voter fraud” accusations are all part of the Republican National Lawyers Association’s (or as I like to call them: Karl Rove’s Voter Suppression Squad) concerted effort to suppress likely Democratic voters. Talking Points Memo (TPM) and bradblog.com have followed this very closely. The question, first asked by TPM, now must be asked: If these eight, i.e. David Iglesias, were fired for not going after “voter fraud” cases what did the other US Attorney’s do to keep their jobs? Look at the flimsy case in Wisconsin that was overturned from the bench! That particular Federal Appeals Court is one of the more conservative districts in the country. Can’t blame those “liberal activist” judges for legislating from the bench this time.

    Thanks for noting the article on Iglesias. Sorry it took me so long to find you.
