Shenanigans in 2012 Elections?

I've been getting reports over the past few days of what appears to be massive voter fraud in Ohio, Virginia, Florida, and Pennsylvania.

I haven't linked to any of the stories because: 1) you can always -- always -- find some amount of voter fraud in any election; 2) sour grapes have a way of making conspiracy theories sound plausible, even to me; and 3) it interferes with my plans of going Galt.

But now we have some MSM reports which seem to confirm that this might be the case.

Now, I'm not saying that if these illegal activities are confirmed that Romney would have won the election. You might as well argue that had Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate for president, dropped out of the race that we would have won. Or if we had a better turnout. Etc, etc.

In any close race, if any one of a number of variables is changed the outcome is changed.

My Dad and I used to endlessly argue this point whenever his preferred team lost a game and he'd blame it on the refs.

"Had they just not blown that one call, we'd have won!" He was always convinced the refs had it in for his team.

"Sure," I would say, "but had Magic just made that three pointer, we'd also have won. And Kareem hustled down the court one more time." You get the picture.

But, still .... Is this something?
