On WMAL radio, hosts Brian Wilson and Cheri Jacobus pressed Cuccinelli about why he has not opened a major investigation into what they suggested was wide-spread voter fraud in Virginia — an assessment they made based on receiving unproven allegations by email from listeners. Studies have shown Americans are more likely to be struck by lightning than to commit voter fraud. Cuccinelli endorsed the idea of such investigations, but noted that he lacks the statutory authority to do launch an investigation.
Cuccinelli backed Jacobus on her conspiracy theories:
JACOBUS: There needs to be a way for people to be able to report this stuff and have it looked into. I mean, just across the country, we’re hearing so many stories. And people can talk about it, but nothing seems to be done. And, in fact in these states where voter ID is required to vote…
WILSON: Photo ID.
JACOBUS: Photo ID. Voter photo ID.
Obama lost every one of those states. He can’t win a state where photo ID is required. So clearly there’s something going on out there and until there’s a way to have something done about it where when you report it, you know it’s going to be looked into, the other side just says “Oh, well, you’re just poor losers,” and that sort of thing.
CUCCINELLI: Your tone suggests you’re a little upset with me. You’re preaching to the choir. I’m with you completely.
These people are just evil. I got into an argument on election night because of people like this who actually think over three million people faked their identity and stuffed the damned ballot box nationwide. Because they hear stories, and damn the facts about Voter ID, all that matters are the stories.
But to tell these radio host conspiracy buffs that their stories suggest Barack Obama would not have won had all 50 states had Voter ID laws? That's evil.
Ken "Cooch" Cuccinelli, by the way, is running for governor in 2013, hoping to ascend to Governor Ultrasound's lofty perch.
I hope Virginia shows him the door and hands him the ultrasound wand on the way out.
