The trial is underway for a former Democratic official and a Board of Elections worker who are accused of being part of a plot that has raised questions over whether President Obama's campaign -- when he was a candidate in 2008 -- submitted enough legitimate signatures to have legally qualified for the presidential primary ballot.
The two face charges of orchestrating an illegal scheme to fake the petitions that enabled then-candidates Obama, and Hillary Clinton, to qualify for the race in Indiana.
Former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Party Chairman Butch Morgan Jr. faces multiple felony conspiracy counts to commit petition fraud, and former county Board of Elections worker Dustin Blythe is charged with nine felony forgery counts and one felony count of falsely making a petition of nomination. The proceedings began Monday in South Bend.

I see no one as a foe, I just don't get the folks who sing Obama's praises, when he is so obviously doing a bad job.
Why would I NEED to hate someone? Life is complicated enough without making stuff up.
You're saying anyone who doesn't agree with the government agenda should be sent to GetMo? Give it time, they're workin' on it.
Two former Board of Elections officials have already pleaded guilty to charges related to the scheme and could testify against Morgan and Blythe.
Former board worker Beverly Shelton, who allegedly was assigned the task of forging the petitions for Hillary Clinton, pleaded guilty in March to charges of forgery and falsely making a petition. The board's former Democratic head of voter registration, Pam Brunette, pleaded guilty in April to felony forgery, official misconduct, and falsifying a petition.

I can tell you one reason why I don't like President Obama, Mr. Pharaohs. He killed a 16 year old kid that was an American citizen on foreign soil without due process.
I thank you for your commentary regarding my country. My only advice for you is that you should try to read a little more and try not to come across as an authority on how we feel as Americans.
It would be like me, who is from the American Southwest, puffing out my chest and telling you that everything you know about your own system is wrong even though I've never lived there and I'm not that familiar with the features of your Parliament.
Say what you want but I'm going to take the word of a Londoner to come and try to discredit my displeasure with the President. I haven't liked a single American President in my lifetime. Personally, I think most of our elected officials are somewhere between sociopath and psychopath.
Please don't sit there and lecture me to "support my President no matter what" when you talk smack and don't even use that same sort of reasoning to support David Cameron. Your country is in the toilet and about to hit it's third recession. Are you going to just smile and say "Let Cameron do his job, lads! He'll sort it out". What are you, an extra carried over from the set of "Downton Abbey"?edit on 24-4-2013 by justinsweatt because: (no reason given)
