The NC GOP lie machine is being spun up to full speed, based on the Tillisberger's report of "Alarming Evidence of Voter Error and Fraud".
We could comment on many things, such as:
- Wow! Those are some really big numbers! Oh, wait, they reflect only a very tiny fraction of votes cast;
- This is some VERY carefully spun data intentionally designed to be very misleading and alarm low-information consumers of the information;
- This data probably represents what's been happening for a long time, and nearly all of it is likely to be easily explainable and innocuous; and
- They offer no evidence that any of this would have been prevented by their voter suppression law.
Just when you think they can't sink any lower with their shrill messages to gin up the right-wing extremist base, they sink even lower.
We await a more reasoned analysis of this data (Kim Strach is pretending to be cautious about this, while loons like Rucho and and Moore offer rabid comments), but Kim Strach isn't the one who will offer the reasoned analysis. It will have to be folks like ProgressNC, DemocracyNC and Fitzsimon.
