Another Vadum Fail: Falsely Claims Obama Wants To 'Disenfranchise Soldiers'
Topic: Horowitz

The dickish, thin-skinned, factually challenged Matthew Vadum has struck again.

In an Aug. 6 FrontPageMag post, Vadum claims that President Obama is engaging in a "nickel-and-dime approach to disenfranchisement" by challenging an Ohio law that doesn't give civilians the same extended early-voting period granted to members of the military. Vadum insists that this is a "real-life example of a political candidate trying to make it harder for those Americans who don’t support him to vote. 

In fact, as even the conservatives at Hot Air admit, the Obama campaign is not seeking to reduce the military early-voting window -- it's trying to increase the civilian early-voting window to that of the military. In other words, no military disenfranchisement is going on at all.

Which means that Vadum has gotten his facts wrong. Again.
