In two separate incidents, Republicans have been arrested for voter fraud. In Nevada, a woman voted and then went to a second polling place to try to vote again.
Rubin allegedly voted at one polling location in Henderson, Nev. on Oct. 29 and then went to another voting location in Las Vegas to try to vote again. Poll workers told her records indicated she had already voted, but Rubin allegedly told them she hadn’t. A poll worker reportedly overheard Rubin tell another man that she had “signed my name differently, and they did not ask for ID.” She was arrested at the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and charged with a category “D” felony.
In New Mexico, another unidentified Republican was arrested after trying to vote twice. In this case, the offender was a poll watcher who tried to cast a second vote on a provisional ballot.
On Tuesday in New Mexico, a Republican poll watcher was taken into police custody after also apparently trying to test the system. According to the Las Cruces Sun-News, the man voted, then obtained a second provisional ballot and announced he was simply “testing the system to see if people could get away with voting twice.”
In both cases, the system worked. The offenders were arrested and now face felony charges. So, one wonders, was it worth it?
