Tennessee LAWMAKERS committing voter fraud on the General Assembly FLOORSubmitted by CSA1861 on Sat, 05/05/2012 - 21:09
NASHVILLE, Tenn.- One person, one vote -- it's the whole premise behind our democratic election process. Last year, Tennessee lawmakers passed the controversial voter ID law aimed at eliminating voter fraud. But a NewsChannel 5 investigation has found that some state lawmakers often cast more than one vote on important pieces of legislation. That ghost voting, as some call it, happens in the House chambers probably a lot more often than you think....But when it comes to their own votes, we found House members not only vote for themselves, they also vote for others who are not in their seats. And, sometimes, believe it or not, they even vote for members who are not even there."
