Talking Points Memo: GOP-Pushed Student Voter Fraud Investigation Finds Zero Voter Fraud

-by Ryan J. Reilly

September 21, 2011- Remember how Maine GOP Chairman Charlie Webster accused over 200 students of committing voter fraud because they were paying out-of-state tuition but registered to vote in the state? Turns out none of them actually voted.

A two-month taxpayer funded investigation found that zero of the students committed voter fraud and found just one case of a non-citizen voter — and that happened all the way back in 2002, Bangor Daily News reports. Still, Secretary of State Charlie Summers is maintaining that the system is "fragile and vulnerable" and renewed his opposition to same day voter registration.

David Farmer of Protect Maine Votes called Webster's allegations "false outrageous and, perhaps, defamatory."
