Malkin Misleads on Voter Fraud
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In her Nov. 8 syndiated column (which appears at WorldNetDaily and, Michelle Malkin attacked the Democrats' purported "pre-emption strategy" of "[c]all[ing] into question the results of the midterms even before Election Day had begun," calling it "a phony vehicle to sow seeds of doubt, paranoia and chaos as substitutes for action."

But, as she did when she portrayed Democrats as "unhinged," Malkin ignored the fact that Republicans and conservatives have made the same exact claims, as seen here, here, and here. And before the 2004 election, NewsMax and Robert Novak were claiming that Democrats were planning to steal it.

Is Malkin saying that Republicans who accuse Democrats of voter fraud are also using "a phony vehicle to sow seeds of doubt, paranoia and chaos as substitutes for action"?

UPDATE: Joseph Farah does the same thing in his Nov. 9 column, claiming that "Democrats, and their allies in places of influence, reserve charges of voting fraud exclusively for elections in which they lose."
