John Fund will speak on "Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy" at an October 8, 2008 Noon luncheon at the Milwaukee Athletic Club, 757 North Broadway, , presented by the Milwaukee Lawyers Chapter and Marquette Student Chapter.
John Fund is a member of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial board and writes the paper’s daily “Political Diary.” He has written on voter fraud and election irregularities for the last decade in the Wall Street Journal, The New Republic, The American Spectator and other publications.
His topic is the subject of his recently revised and updated book Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy, published by Encounter Books.
In Stealing Elections, John Fund takes the reader on a national tour of voter fraud scandals ranging from rural states like Texas and Mississippi to big cities like Philadelphia and Milwaukee. He explores dark episodes such as the way “vote brokers” stole a mayoral election in Miami in 1998 by tampering with 4,700 absentee ballots. He reveals how, in the aftermath of the “Motor Voter Law” of 1993 , Californians used mail-in forms to get absentee ballots for fictitious people and pets. Stealing Elections gives us a chilling portrait of our electoral vulnerability.Writing with urgency and authority, John Fund shows how a lethal combination of bureaucratic bungling and ballot rigging have put our democracy at risk.
