8 Republicans Guilty of Election Fraud, 0 ACORN Workers Found Guilty

I've stressed the importance of the psychology of "projection": Psychological projection or projection bias (including Freudian Projection) is the unconscious act of denial of a person's own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to other people. Thus, it involves imagining or projecting that others have those feelings.-Wiki

Such is the case for voter and election fraud. Would it surprise you to know one in five Republicans believe that ACORN stole the 2008 election. 55% are "not sure" if they did or not-Research 2000.

The following is a dramatic, extreme example of projection, and they got caught.

Bradblog: All eight (Republican) defendants in Clay County, Kentucky's election fraud trial have been found guilty today by a federal jury. Six of those eight were high-ranking election officials, including the county clerk, a circuit judge and the school superintendent. The conspirators were charged with having manipulated federal elections in 2002, 2004 and 2006 by buying and selling votes and manipulating electronic voting machines.

According to AP, each of the now-convicted felons (were a part of) a conspiracy to manipulate elections for decades in the rural, heavily Republican county … several of the defendants were also convicted of charges that included mail fraud, extortion and laundering money used to buy votes. The greatest security threat to such systems come from election insiders, not from the voting public and dubious claims of "voter fraud".

Here's one example that should be of concern to other states with the same paperless machines:
The testimony of one of the witnesses … described how she was trained by the county's chief election official, Clerk Freddy Thompson (one of those convicted today), to change votes cast by voters on the county's ES&S touch-screen voting systems after they'd left the voting booth. Wanda White also detailed how she was instructed to change her own voter registration from Republican to Democratic so that she could serve as a Democratic precinct official.
Subversive? Yes. How bizarre is it to imagine undercover Republicans working as Democrats corrupting the electoral process from within. Oh, by the way:
The community organization ACORN has never been charged with, or found guilty of aiding in the illegal casting of a single vote. Ever. Anywhere. No actual evidence has ever been presented in support of such a charge either
ACORN workers have been known to meet quota's by falsely adding names to their registration sheets, felons have voted by mistake and one couple voted twice so they could influence the results of a local issue at their second home. Criminal intent, hardly.
