Voter Fraud Scandal: Signatures Allegedly Forged in Indiana During 2008 Democratic Presidential Primary
Eric Shawn has been reporting on a story out of Indiana where prosecutors are calling for handwriting samples in the 2008 presidential election fraud case. The petitions that put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the primary ballot in that state were allegedly forged. Multiple voters told prosecutors that they never signed their names on the petitions and now there are questions over whether President Obama legally qualified for the ballot.
The former chairman of the St. Joseph County Democratic Party and three other voter registration officials are facing charges. The chairwoman of the St. Joseph County Republican Party, Dr. Deborah Flemming, joined America’s News HQ to talk to Shawn about the controversy. She said, “It is either complete ineptitude, laziness or arrogance.”
Dr. Flemming explained that in order to qualify for the ballot
a candidate must have 500 signatures in each of the nine congressional districts in Indiana. Shawn broke down the number in this case which revealed that the Obama campaign qualified with 534 while the Clinton campaign had 704. The reports in Indiana say that about 150 signatures may be faked.
