A bunch of election fraud blogs have popped up in individual states. Here’s a great one from Iowa with a great story. In this case, fraudulent voter registration led to an absentee ballot being sent to one of the fake people … in Rome:

A concerned citizen from Sioux City, IA made a trip to her auditor’s office last week to inquire into some political mailings her family kept receiving. She discovered that several individuals unknown to her or her family had registered to vote using their address in 2004. Even more concerning is the fact that one of these folks, (Iowans love this word) Mr. David Loepp, had already requested and recieved his 2008 absentee ballot via international mail in ROME. Voter fraud in Iowa? Never!

Note that this fake person who doesn’t exist signed an request form for the ballot. Click through to see the application and see the signature.
