    Are the people depicted actually people who've had to do jail time for attempted election fraud? The Arthur S. DeMoss foundation was once forced to change the voiceover of one of its "Life ... What a Beautiful Choice" ads because it couldn't prove that all the children in one group shot weren't actually almost aborted.

      The ones like that were taken down and replaced with others that encouraged voting. I can't remember just now whether it was the billboard company that made that decision or the formerly anonymous donor, who had paid for the original ones, after he was identified.

      As far as the people in the ad, it's almost impossible that they were actual fraudulent voters. There is so little illegal voting, and those are almost always felons who are not yet "off paper" and confused about whether they can vote. That's why the clamor to have voter ID is so unnecessary.
