An early sign of trouble came after election workers received a voter registration card dated Sept. 21 from a woman named Denise Red Horse. But at the Ziebach County auditor's office in Eagle Butte, where little is kept secret among the town's 489 residents, officials immediately suspected fraud: Red Horse had died in a car accident 18 days earlier.
I know this little town well. It is where a number of native american's were moved when a dam was built on a local river some years ago. Sounds like prime ground for voter fraud. But the good people in the auditor's office seem to be pretty astute.

The Democrats talk about every vote counting, and the will of the people.
And when the will of the people is expressed in voting the bums out, they want to know, "How did this happen? And what can we do about it?"
I love it. "What can the do about" the expressed will of the people.
Let's keep this on the front-burner. It seems very likely that election fraud was committed here and that the GOP should rightfully pick up another seat.

"Is there no virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks -- no form of government can render us secure. To suppose liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea. If there be sufficient virtue and intelligence in the community, it will be exercised in the selection of these men. So that we do not depend on their virtue, or put confidence in our rulers, but in the people who are to choose them.
-- James Madison, Speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 20, 1788
