Stephen Colbert was sporting some pretty sharp boots last night, courtesy of his new Colbert Super PAC funds, apparently, as he took aim at a fellow super PAC, Americans for Prosperity, for their obvious attempts at voter fraud in the Wisconsin recall elections.
Over the last few weeks, the Koch brothers backed organization has been sending out absentee applications, in an attempt to confuse voters and hijack the election, as Stephen pointed out:
“Americans for Prosperity has even sent out this actual, helpful absentee ballot applications to Democratic districts. Now, they had to rush these to print, so some people have complained about inaccuracies, but it’s minor stuff like…instead of instructing you to send your ballot to the local municipal clerk where ballots are officially collected, the address on this ballot is ‘Absentee Ballot Application Processing Center,’ which, and this is interesting, does not exist. But I’m sure the Koch brothers were going to hand-deliver those ballots to the proper location once they separated them from the mail sent to Wisconsin Family Association and Wisconsin Right To Life, the two other conservative groups to use that anonymous P.O. box.”
He goes on to highlight further “discrepancies” in AFP’s mailings, including the statement that the ballots must be received by August 11th, a full two days after the election.
“Nothing nefarious here,” Colbert says, and points out AFP’s defense on such fraudulent information:
“It was really just a typo!”
A typo. You know what? The modern American voter has no choice but to be pretty election savvy, because these evil and wicked men will stop at nothing to get what they want: the subversion of democracy by the corporate state.
