"Heritage Foundation’s presidential election year ritual."

On October 18, 2004, the Wall Street Journal’s John Fund appeared with Rebecca Hagelin at a Heritage Foundation event entitled “Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens our Democracy.”


Today – four years later – Fund and Hagelin appeared at Heritage event entitled… “Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy.”

Commenting on right-claims of voter fraud, former U.S. Attorney David Iglesias said, “Based on what I saw in 2004 and 2006, it’s a scare tactic.”


Yglesias on “voter fraud” allegations: “Just as when the Bush Justice Department brought inappropriate and illegal political pressure to bear on US Attorneys across the country to investigate voter fraud, they could barely come up with anything to investigate. It just doesn’t happen.”
