Voter Fraud in New York

This is a slightly disturbing article from the New York Times. Apparently there was a lot of voter fraud in Hillary Clinton’s home state of New York, especially in highly African American areas, places which would most likely go to Barack Obama.

Black voters are heavily represented in the 94th Election District in Harlem’s 70th Assembly District. Yet according to the unofficial results from the New York Democratic primary last week, not a single vote in the district was cast for Senator Barack Obama. That anomaly was not unique. In fact, a review by The New York Times of the unofficial results reported on primary night found about 80 election districts among the city’s 6,106 where Mr. Obama supposedly did not receive even one vote, including cases where he ran a respectable race in a nearby district.

I don’t know if this was intentional fraud on the part of Clinton supporters, or just some oversight or accident by a pollworker. Either way its a disturbing trend in our democracy, that thousands of people don’t have their vote counted. Read the whole article here.
