When Rush Limbuagh suggested that his listeners vote in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries — so-called “Operation Chaos” — MSNBC’s Dan Abrams called it “un-American,” and others suggested it might be “criminal.” I wonder what Abrams thinks about MSNBC’s own Ed Schultz, who last week declared he would commit voter fraud to prevent Scott Brown from winning the special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s old Senate seat in Massachusetts. Discussing the election on his radio show this past week Schultz said :
I tell you what. If I lived in Massachusetts I’d try to vote ten times . I don’t know if they’d let me or not but I’d try to. Yeah, that’s right. I’d cheat to keep these bastards out. I would. Because that’s exactly what they are.
It’s pretty shocking to hear a prominent media personality embracing voter fraud like that, but there you have it.
