WND Can't Stop Repeating Voter Fraud Falsehoods
Topic: WorldNetDaily

WorldNetDaily has pushed the completely false claim that President Obama won one Ohio County with "108 percent of the voters registered." But facts don't matter to WND, because it's still pushing it.

A Dec. 2 WND article promoting its meaningless petition demanding an investigation of "fraud and abuse in America’s election system" claims that "And in one Ohio county – widely considered ground zero for the election – Obama received 106,258 votes from 98,213 eligible voters – an impossible 108 percent of the vote."

In fact, the county in question did not have more votes than registered voters. As per usual, WND offers no evidence to back up its claim.

WND also cites "the 59 different Philadelphia voting divisions in which Mitt Romney received zero votes compared to Obama’s 19,605" as evidence of fraud. In fact, the idea of these precincts being an example of voter fraud has been discredited; the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the precincts are "almost exclusively black" with very few registered Republicans.

Curiously, WND fails to mention the fact that there are precincts in Utah where Obama recevied no votes as additional evidence of voter fraud.
