SOUTH BEND — Guilty. On all counts.That was the verdict late Thursday in the forgery trial involvingformer chair of the county Democratic Party Butch Morgan and party member Dustin Blythe, who were accused of conspiring to forge signatures on petitions to place Democratic candidates on the state primary ballot in 2008.
Of course, we know that any type of election fraud is just a figment of our imagination.
The right to vote is precious, blood was shed, lives were lost, families destroyed just so that we can have a voice in the process.
When someone messes with your vote, they have taken away your voice and allowed the political system to be governed by a few and not you. That should make people mad, but it doesn’t.
