Just caught this:

GOP controlled Virginia Board Of Elections refuses to prosecute GOP voter fraud

A GOP operative was observed by multiple witnesses to have discarded completed voter registration forms in a dumpster. This is a crime in Virginia, but the Republican controlled State Board of Elections will not ask the State Attorney General to investigate the matter.

WTVR.com has reported locally from Virginia that The Virginia State Board of Elections (VSBE) will be refusing to prosecute Colin Small, 31, who was arrested on charges of obstruction of justice and voter fraud. Under the written law the Virgina Attorney General is unable to move forward with a prosecution unless it is requested to investigate by the VSBE. Small, therefore, is off the legal hook despite the fact he was witnessed and there is evidence of him committing a crime.

The VSBE is a special agency of the state government, where all appointees are hand picked by the governor. In this case Virginia's governor is Bob McDonnell, a Republican. The VSBE is comprised of three members. Two are Republicans, and one is a Democrat. Therefore, the GOP always has the majority in every election decision.

One can draw his or her own conclusions about why the majority party chose not to prosecute itself in one of the most polarized elections in America's history.

It's now official. The GOP has endorsed election fraud as a means to winning in Virginia. This calls into question EVERY state where the GOP controls the mechanisms of prosecution and running the election.

This news must hit every television screen in the United States.

The GOP has its October Surprise and that "surprise" is  saying this:

We will lie, cheat, and steal to win this election and there's not a damned thing anybody can do to stop us!
I have NEVER been this angry in my life.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
