True the Vote is a Tea Party group with the stated purpose of stopping election fraud perpetrated by Democrats and other 'undesirables' (read: racial
and sexual minorities). Unfortunately, their tactics include voter intimidation and suppression, spreading lies about the true extent and perpetrators
behind voter fraud in US political elections, and now...forgery and fraud.
It seems that a group of True the Vote volunteers were attempting to sign up to be poll watchers in a heavily African American district in Ohio. When
5 of the 6 Franklin County candidates withdrew their signatures from the observer application forms after initial filing, the True the Vote volunteers
did what any citizen concerned over possible voter fraud would do...they forged signatures and filed now-fraudulent documents.
They were found out, thankfully, and are now looking at possible felony charges. Also, they were obviously and unanimously denied from being able to
position themselves at polling places.
And, in no small wonder, True the Vote head Catherine Engelbrecht is now denying, denying, denying that anybody's committed any wrongdoing. We'll see
what the courts decide, if charges are pressed.
Between this and all the other examples of voter suppression and disenfranchisement perpetrated by Republican state governments, I simply can't fathom
the cognitive dissonance it must take for these people to think that what they're doing (or, trying to do) is a just cause.
