In 1997, Herman Cain’s campaign manager Mark Block was fined $15,000 and banned from Wisconsin politics for three years after being accused of violating election law. During his time as campaign manager for state Supreme Court Justice Jon P. Wilcox, Block “was accused of illegally coordinating activities with an outside group which mounted a get-out-the-vote effort,” writes the Daily Caller. Ignoring Block’s history, Cain himself has been outspoken about the need for electoral integrity, going so far as to support a national voter ID law in order to prevent the phantom menace of voter fraud.
